“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The quality of food at Evangeline's was a breath of fresh air from the typical "college town food." The staff was very prompt and on the ball throughout the evening. We expected graduation weekend to be rather hectic yet the food was served in a timely manor to our large party. Great food, excellent service, perfect atmosphere.

“"Delicious and elegant in Tuscaloosa"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

I have had the pleasure of dinning at Evangeline's as well as attending bridal teas, baby showers and also one very awesome and elegant wedding reception. The food has always been delicious and beautiful. The atmosphere has always been cozy , relaxed and friendly while still providing an up scale fine dinning experience. There was a wide variety of wine and mixed drinks and the bar tender was very charming with a sweetly wicked smile! I have always enjoyed Evangeline's and would suggest it to anyone visiting Tuscaloosa and those who live in Tuscaloosa and haven't had the opportunity to try it.

“Fabulous”

The service staff is overly accommodating and very friendly. The atmosphere is intimate but inviting, and the food is fabulous. You must try the crab cakes and the shrimp and grits! Will definitely be back soon!!

“Overall O.K., not as great as anticipated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Overall, mixed review. The restaurant is pretty. It is also closed quarters and noisy. The wait staff was delightful, but did not know the menu as well as they should. Ran out of bread so brought a bagel. Appreciated the effort, but a little odd. We ordered salads which were good and the duck breast and scallops/shrimp entrees. The duck was tasty but a bit tough. The seafood dish was good, but my son left hungry. We shared a crème brûlée that was very good.

“Dining here a must when in Tuscaloosa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

I have had the great experience to dine at Evangeline's several times over the last few years and I must say that the staff have always performed above and beyond the call of duty. The wait staff was very attentive and personable. The chefs preparation and presentation of the food was amazing.( I almost hated to eat it). Dave Simpson, who is a managing partner, with his witty and entertaining banter at the bar and his willingness to help personalize any special occasion, and the staff sets this venue above any of the other dining establishments in Tuscaloosa.
