Atchafalaya is a true New Orleans neighborhood eatery where the eclectic yet elegant atmosphere is only outshone by the attentive service and delicious local fare. Nestled under the oaks on the edges of the Irish Channel, Magazine Street, and historic Garden districts, this hidden gem is one the best contemporary Creole dining experiences that one can find in the city. Neighbors, locals, and out of towners alike will become regulars after experiencing the brand of hospitality offered by New Orleans’ only five “A” restaurant. If having standards such as a gumbo du jour, blue crab raviolo, or shrimp & grits, a nightly seafood special, or a filet paired with a selection from the world class wine program you will not be disappointed. The introductions of brunch, live music, cocktails, and now an extensive happy hour continue the newest culinary chapter for a storied local haunt, embracing New Orleans’ culinary culture while placing contemporary spin on traditional New Orleans cuisine.

    The food and food service are great. But the restaurant charged a 3% surcharge that was not disclosed on the menu or the itemized receipt.

    Lovely lunch for our family of 7! We had a private space and had steak and eggs, shrimp and grits, salad, gumbo and chicken. The Brussel sprouts and deviled eggs hit the spot!!! Thank you for the incredible service, food and venue with live music!

    2nd time here. On this trip, the food was so-so. Too much going on with each dish - pork chop, Ted fish, fried green tomatoes, and duck leg with cassoulet. Flavor competed and made the overall flavor and taste very muddled and confused. The cassoulet was way too salty and smokey. The service was OK and friendly, but our dishes sat in front of use for 15 minutes until they were cleared. Will think twice about a return visit.

    Fantastic menu including breakfast after lunch! Oyster salad had at least a dozen crispy hot oysters. Delicious deep roux gumbo. Deviled eggs with cracklings! Pleasant atmosphere and friendly efficient staff. Love it!

    Wonderful food, great staff and service. The green tomato bloody mary and Pineapple Old fashion were unique and delicious. Food was equally unique with great flavors mixed together. The only reason for the 4 on ambiance was our table was very close to where people were coming and going (which cannot be avoided at times), so it was a little busy for us. This restaurant was one of our two favorites in New Orleans and are so glad we waited to eat here.
