Cafe Vermilionville undersells itself with the title 'cafe'. It is a stylish restaurant suitable for a big night out. Service is excellent and Tyler our waiter was just fabulous. The food was very good. My husband said his meal was one of the best he has had while in the US. Highly recommended.

They have done an excellent job with the updating of this wonderful house, it is so inviting and welcoming. The garden room windows overlook a lovely courtyard, a real asset to have that gorgeous view while... More

Nancy was a great source of information about the history of Cafe Vermilionville as my wife and I enjoyed a late night drink. We recall it's previous venue as Judge Roy Bean in the early 1970s. The atmosphere is much improved with the remodeling in the 1980s and Nancy explained it all.

Sometimes going with the flow is the best course of action. When in the heart of Cajun country, a visit calls for a classic meal housed in this gorgeous late 1700 abode. Seated at a white linen-covered table in a wood-beamed dining room, our culinary immersion starts with turtle soup, smoked turkey and andouille gumbo... and the speciality du maison...... More

Worst tasting, most expensive gumbo ever ! Our family is from Lafayette area so we know how to make it. SOOO Expensive for portion you receive. Cost $45 for two cups of gumbo and one additional appetizer. Our waiter was SHOCKED when we told him what we thought of the food. Couldn't believe we didn't love it, because he said... More

Food is GREAT no matter what you order. The owners are usually walking around to see that guest are happy so if you have any complaints they are there to correct anything. I love the bar atmosphere as well as the back dining room. Servers are extremely professional. This place is excellent for private parties or weddings so if you... More

I love Cafe V.: The traditional menu to the specials, the view into the courtyard, or sitting in the courtyard for their concert series--you can't beat the atmosphere. From front to back of the house everyone and everything is seasoned perfectly ;) One of the best wine lists in Lafayette as well!
