My visit this time was just ok. I had been here before in January and received great customer service, great food and great drinks...NOT THIS TIME! Very disappointed. Maybe because it was a Saturday night and they were busy...not sure. Either way, neither was good and the prices are too steep for sorry service and food.

Brunch is best but dinner is delicious! The Bloody Mary Bar is almost a meal with all veggies pickled in house and New Orleans-HOT! The oyster Rockefeller eggs are unique and spectacular - with a good shot of Pernod! Go here! Enjoy the great live music. You might have to wait for your table but remember one of the rules... More

I've had a lot of great meals in New Orleans but this place is right at the top of my list. It's a bit out of the main French Quarter, but an easy taxi ride. Every thing on the menu (I went with my wife and son so we tried quite a few things.) was excellent. A creative twist on... More

This was a great find!! We were in NOLA with family, but our anniversary was during the vacation period so we needed a Hot Date place! We researched a few restaurants and choose this one because it seemed to be more of a “local” place. I would guess the restaurant is in a former house; it is right in the... More

This was our second time @ Atchafalaya. It was just as good as we remember. I had the swordfish & my husband had the drum. Both delicious! My only complaint would be that one of the bartenders had a bit of an attitude (commenting under his breath), but we only had to experience him for a bit.

I ate a late brunch here. I ate solo at the bar and had fish tacos. The entire staff treated me vey kindly. I was dressed extremely casually - more so than most. But it is the kind of atmosphere where they seem to treat you well no matter your attire etc. I had a salad with the fish tacos... More

I had the best brunch of my entire life there and the dinner menu is even better. It has a bloody mary bar where you make your own bloody mary. Need I say more?

Love, love, love the brunch at Atchafalaya. We had eight people and our reservation afforded us a private room. Start out with the Bloody Mary Bar--you choose your alcohol and go and choose from three bases, including a green tomato base. The array of hot sauces and garnishes are great. There was a spicy green bean I loved. I ordered... More

Now that was a feast! REcommended by locals Atchafalaya was no disappointment. Had cooked oysters, Shrimps and grits to die for. Very good wine list, charming part of New Orleans too. highly recommend it, but if you want to finish your plate do go in hungry, the portions are very healthy!
