Wonderful Dinner

Began the evening with a spicy ginger margarita...very nice. Started with fried green tomatoes...excellent. Next the shrimp and grits entrée...excellent. Finished with blue cheese flan...out of this world. One of the most unexpectedly flavorful desserts I have ever tried. Our amiable server Jake... read more

We came here because my sister had read reviews on it. It's a quaint little place and was full. We were seated upstairs and it was quite nice. I ordered the soup which was tasty because this was our last stop of 3 in the previous bar hopping 3 hours. My sister ordered fried green tomatoes and was happy enough... More

My husband and I had Sunday Brunch at Atchafalaya last fall. The specialty breakfast menu was small but diverse. The interior of this old house is narrow, but the tables were not jammed together. We didn't opt for the Bloody-Mary bar, but it looked nice. Food was good if a little pricey. We would return and I would recommend reservations.

My friends and I went here for a Sunday brunch, but I wish we would've gotten there earlier to hear the great jazz band, we caught the tailend of it. Our reservation was at 1:30 pm, because we went to the spa beforehand, and brunch is over at 2 pm. We started with the build your own bloody Mary's. I... More

The restaurant is small and sits on a corner in the Garden District. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcome. The host and the servers were all very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, we were eating early after a large lunch and were not as hungry as the menu demanded. I did, however, have the crawfish and shrimp bisque... More

Absolutely loved this place! The food was great and the Bloody Mary bar was a perfect way to start the day. It is cute on the outside and inside. The staff was warm and welcoming and by far one of the best places in New Orleans.

$10 cab ride from French Quarter. Pretty house with interesting decor. Presentation of food lovely. Very tasty, smaller portions. On Southern Time, was a very leisurely 90 minute service. Nice walk through neighborhood to The Garden District and St Charles line back to the Quarter

Tried for dinner and arrived a little before the time of or reservation. Nevertheless it seemed to take longer than it needed to get us seated Server, Sean (sorry if not spelled correctly), took us through the specials and gave advice on which fish options would suit one of us. Sean was good throughout, though there seemed to be discrepancies... More

We had a delicious Sunday brunch here with the family. The Louisiane eggs Benny and the special of the day were excellent, and the huevos rancheros were also delicious. We enjoyed mimosas and the Bloody Mary buffet bar, especially all the different types of pickled veggies. The only thing was service was a little slow but it was Sunday brunch... More

We happened to be in the Garden District looking for NOLA brewery and came across this wonderful little corner restaurant. Since it was time for lunch we decided we would try it. I had no idea how far up on the TripAdvisor ranking it was at that time. We are so pleased that we decided to just wing it and... More
