Excellent cuisine in a lovely home in the Garden District.

Lovely Garden District restaurant with excellent food located in the wonderful ambiance of a house in this gorgeous area. We walked around the entire District before getting here and it really is a lovely experience of going back in time. The food is well prepared and creatively conceived... read more

How fun is Cafe Atchafalaya! Really had fun with friends at Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is lovely, nice exterior (no parking!), friendly bar area with space for a small band and bloody mary fixings station. (If you order a bloody mary for brunch your server will bring you a glass of vodka with ice then its up to you to... More

My daughter and I went here last minute on a stormy Wednesday night. Not surprisingly, there was no wait - super stormy outside. I knew it was going to be a bit pricey, but it was my last night visiting my daughter so what the hell. I had a belgian beer and she had a nice rose from France. Our... More

Only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star was due to the wait. 1-1/2 hours seems a little too long. Then we have to take a seat outside during lunch in July-HOT!!! It was either take that seat or wait. Food is very good, which made up for the heat. Will go back, but my advice is not to... More

Deep in the Garden District this little restuarant will blow your socks off . With their down home well made meals and desserts. It is a romantic type restuarant and they make great Sazerac's (a New Orleans creation) and great food. I had the BBQ Swordfish and my wife had the Shrimp and Grits, both were delicious. The staff is... More

What a fun Brunch this past Saturday. While New Orleans is truly one of the best foodie towns, Atchafalaya was incredible. From start to finish. The music was fun, the service outstanding and food incredible. The manager even helped us find another food joint that was incredible. Their version of the eggs Benedict was so good along with nice wine.... More

Outside of the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, Atchafalaya is quiet, comfortable and a satisfying place to spend a late morning. Menu is creative, specials are definitely worth a try, and a fantastic Bloody Mary bar. Pleasant, attentive staff!
