Definite Louisiana twist to the menu, but perfect in every respect. The right amount of heat in a variety of selections. The service was impeccable and attentive. I had the pork chop with andouille relish which was fabulous, and my wife had the blackened redfish, likewise good. The corn and crab soup was outstanding and the beet salad was very... More

We had a business dinner here and the noise level was conducive to having a conversation. All 5 of us thought the food was excellent. We ordered the seared snapper, heirloom tomato salad, corn and crab chowder, turtle soup, gumbo and oysters. Great meal and great service.

We went here before seeing a play at Ford's Theater. The menu is heavy on Seafood but they were able to work around a seafood allergy without any issues. I've been to restaurants that have really struggled with patroms with allergies even when they have non seafood dishes on the menu. Thankfully this was not one of them. The food... More

We were in DC for business and were looking to have dinner. Two of the four of us had recently been in Philly on business and had had dinner there. In Philly we had one of the best meals I and my partner had ever had. It has become a challenge to find a place as good or better. Acadiana... More

Three of us had the pleasure of dining at Acadiana, a second time, with the same results; an absolutely stupendous dining experience. The service is exceptional as is the food. Three different dishes; veal, beef and shrimp, all flavorful, plentiful and served hot. The appetizers were just as good. Biscuits with pepper jelly as an interlude were wonderful. Next time...

This restaurant is highly overrated and I wasn't pleased st all with the food selections. We had a party of 10 and everyone was disappointed in this restaurant. Hopefully, they have a better taste palette on the food selections.

Family member suggested we eat at Acadiana and it was an enjoyable experience.Reservations seem to be necessary. To accommodate changes in our plans (In town for the African American museum opening) we had to change our reservations several times. It was worth it..After a previous look at menu I believed I wanted to try the seafood gumbo but found during... More

Had one of the best Sazaracs, incredible grilled oysters, and delicious melt in your mouth duck. Service was attentive and professional while I had a relaxing evening outside on the porch. Perfection.
