Atchafalaya was our last meal before leaving New Orleans. After a week of delicious food we were excited to try this place known for their brunch. We ordered shrimp and grits and the eggs Benedict. Both dishes were incredible and we ended the meal with...a banana Foster…what a way to end our New Orleans trip! Strongly recommended!More

We love coming to Atchafalaya every time we come to NOLA. The restaurant is located on Louisiana Ave just steps away from Magazine street. From the French Quarter, it requires an Uber or bus ride out (but it’s worth it!) Reservations are recommended along with...more casual wear (no t shirts or shorts) as this is more of a white tablecloth type of restaurant. Our family loves the Shrimp and grits here! I ended up ordering the Gumbo to start out with and the Fish curry (featuring red snapper that evening) as the entree. The gumbo I thought was okay but the fish was really great, cooked to perfection, and was the perfect size. The bread pudding was a great dessert to end the night! Overall we have never had a bad meal here at Atchafalaya and for sure will be back during our next NOLA trip! Highly recommend the trip out here but plan ahead and make your reservationMore

Excellent dinner in a lovely atmosphere. We came in after being outside on a chilly day and the food was delightful. The chicken was juicy and flavorful and the filet was amazingly tender. Loved pit dessert also. Just a great meal!

We all enjoyed an excellent dinner here. Shrimp and grits, pork chop, and gumbo lived up to our expectations and then some.

We had read wonderful things about Atchafalaya, and their brunch, before visiting NOLA, so we decided one of our two brunches this weekend would be there. We all agreed it was an excellent choice! The staff was very friendly and provided excellent service. The cocktail...list is inventive, and the wine/beer selection covers all the necessary brunch bases. The Bayou Benedict melted in my mouth, including the grits. The salads, one with goat cheese and one with shrimp were tasty but not large. We regret not ordering appetizers, but that was our only disappointment. I look forward to having dinner at Atchafalaya on my next trip to NOLA.More

Loved it. We went for brunch on Friday. If they have biscuits and gravey on special- order it! Everything we had was great.

The food was great but the tables were crammed so close together the waiters were squeezing thru and bumping my chair- super awkward. Jazz was great.

We had a reservation. It has limited seating but many did not have reservations. You may wait awhile.

They have a lot of small plates available that should be fine. You can review their menu online and contact the owners directly.
