Dinner with a view

I love Cafe V.: The traditional menu to the specials, the view into the courtyard, or sitting in the courtyard for their concert series--you can't beat the atmosphere. From front to back of the house everyone and everything is seasoned perfectly ;) One of the best wine lists in Lafayette as well!

My office employees and I get a chance to sneak across the street a couple of time a month to eat lunch at this wonderful dining establishment with great food and some of the best waitstaff we have ever encountered. The Garden Room room has a wall of glass that looks out over their well kept courtyard. A new outdoor... More

There simply isn't a more Charming , Romantic dining venue to host a special party than the Garden Room at Cafe' V! We hosted our son's Rehearsal dinner here and were very pleased with Staff, management and the Food. During the cocktail hour Bacon wrapped Shrimp and Crawfish Beignets were passed- both delicious. Each course came out in well spaced... More

Atmosphere, ambiance, and service at this Lafayette classic are incomparable in our area. On our most recent visit, Alex and David were our waiters, and their attention was perfect; inobtrusive, but always there just when needed. The setting is formal but relaxed, and the tables are spaced so as to afford privacy in your own conversations, and minimum spillover from... More

Great food. Great service. Loved the scenery. Décor is well matched. Prices are average, not too expensive. The bar is nice also. Will make sure to go there again.

It had been about a year since the last visit and we decided to take the family of 7 adults for my-in-laws 70yr anniversary. We also have been coming here for more than 20+ years and the food had always been above average! When we first entered we noticed 2- very large wedding parties of 25+! We had heard they... More

In all fairness, I will start by saying my husband and I did not know that this was a "fancy" restaurant. One wouldn't think that by looking at the place outside and in no other reviews that we read over did we see that it was. However, even though we were "under dressed" our experience was horrible. The hostess was... More

Loved the Gumbo! We tried it while doing the Cajun Food Tours and went back for more. Wasn't as impressed with the shrimp poboy but will go back for more gumbo.

Two out of town businessmen visited my work facility recently, and they stayed at the recently renovated Doubletree across the street from Cafe Vermilionville. We decided to eat at Cafe Vermilionville due to proximity, and all were pleased with the food and service. I ordered the Gulf Fish (Grouper) with crabmeat topping. Excellent choice! I also asked the server to... More
