“A terrific dinner!”
Reviewed September 16, 2009

Enjoyed a Labor Day weekend dinner here and cannot rave enough about the food. Cafe Atch is now one of my new staples in the Big Easy. If you can, go now before they get their liquor license as the BYOB policy saves you substantially.

Everyone in our party loved each and every dish. The menu may seem limited, but every item is prepared with exquisite flavor and great care.

Service was a bit slow as the kitchen had trouble keeping up with the Saturday night rush, but those are kinks the new mgt will certainly work out. The staff hustled to compensation and overall, it was just wonderful.

“Big double wow!!!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2009

The food, service, and atmosphere was beyond incredible! We ate here pre-Katrina and found it good. This is our first trip back since Katrina, and found this place beyond good! The food was incredible---especially the bread pudding to complement the delicious food/entrees! Well worth the trip to the Uptown area!

“Excellent Food, Excellent Service, Friendly and Satisfying”
Reviewed May 14, 2009

After finding this restaurant online, we have been 5 times and taken business clients 2 additional times. The food is consistently good, Tony the owner is fabulous as is the servers, and the atmosphere is conducive to romance or business. It is a definite must go to restaurant!

Excellent food - attentive and friendly staff - creative menu and food pairings. Casual atmosphere. Tad pricey but not too bad. I would eat there again.
