Great food and atmosphere!

They also made suggestions about the menu. The food was unbelievable! I recommend everyone that visits Memphis, to... read more

4 of us dropped in for dinner, two ordered catfish grilled and fried. Both excellent. The fried was a very light dusting and perfect The étouffée was also very good. Three of us ordered the grilled cabbage and we all agreed it was the best we ever had. Only drawback is no spirits license but they do offer beer (and... More

Great location, delicious food, decent atmosphere. The prices were slightly high but worth it overall. I got the gator po-boy, my wife got the jambalaya, and we split the boudin. All of them were tasty.

As we were on a road trip of the Southern states we felt that we had to try creole and soul food and so picked this restaurant. This review is difficult as the staff were very friendly but the food just wasn't for us. I tried a creole sampler of four different dishes - including alligator stew. I am sorry... More

This was the first time my wife and I had gone there. It was certainly a pleasant surprise. We went to the Main street location. To start with the staff was extremely professional which is a rarity these days. The food came out in a timely manner, and it was wonderful. I'm sure we will be making a return visit... More

We first visited Deja Vu a couple of years ago and the Alligator Stew has gone down as one of my best meals EVER! I have dreamed about it ever since and was really excited to be going through Memphis again recently so I could checkout their newest location downtown. We met the owners son, Rundell this time and told... More

I had the Jambalaya Pasta at the Florida Street location. Wow! Best cajun food I've ever had! The small restaurant gives it an authentic feel. The food was hot and delivered in a timely manner. I will definitly go back, and hopefully soon! Five stars.

The waiter was so pleasant and very helpful with his recommendations. He did forget out appetizers but was super nice about making it up to us. Very recommended!

Happened upon this restaurant whilst strolling down Main St, delighted to discover somewhere catering for vegan diets alongside local cuisine. Staff were very welcoming and attentive, service was excellent and very quick. I enjoyed a large dish of Portabella Mushroom & Sundried TomatoPasta (vegan) whilst my partner had a plateful of jambalaya. Very unusual to find a place that can... More

If you do not travel on the coast and you want the taste of real creole cuisine, Deja vu is the place to go. We had their Gumbo. It is real thing I can tell you. The other items on the menu are good. Our previous visit included some gator's bites and Jambalaya pasta, what was also great. Highly recommended.
