We dined at Atchafalya a few years ago for dinner and were quite pleased. During this trip to New Orleans, we revisited the establishment for brunch and were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The food was delicious! My dish, the Eggs Atchafalya was superb! The others also enjoyed their meal-- the fried chicken dish was huge! One person partook of the bloody mary bar and enjoyed it very much. Overall, it was an excellent dining experience and the accolade it received for it's brunch is evident. Highly recommended-- but make sure that you have reservations.

We went in a big family group--eight of us--and so our reservation was on the later side. We got there on time, and spent about 40 minutes waiting in the bar. Once we got seated, the service was very slow. The food was amazing, and I enjoyed every bite. But the service was absolutely awful. Every course took forever. By the time we were waiting for our desserts (for over half an hour), there was nobody else left in the restaurant. It was as if the staff was so in "going home" mode that they couldn't pay attention to get us finished up, I'm giving four stars because the food and atmosphere were wonderful, but the service really let us down that night.

Atchafalaya had a great feel as soon as we walked in - not too big and every table had people who looked to be thoroughly enjoying their meal. We ordered a bottle of wine and shared the free form blue crab ravioli- delicious! That was followed by shrimp and grits - creamy grits and great flavor for some and the market fish - grouper tonight- served on a sweet potato cake in a delightful sauce cake topped with coconut flakes for others. A shared serving of bread pudding topped off a delightful meal.

We took a quick Uber ride from our hotel in the French Quarter (near Jackson Square) to the restaurant. We went on a Saturday night at 9pm. No wait for our table for two. Sam provider great recommendations: the raviolo appetizer and shrimp & grits entree. The chicken bonne femme was delicious as well. We will most definitely go back!
