    Went for brunch. There was live music. It got loud at times, but was very festive. Food was fantastic, and the service here is much better than most these days as the restaurant has adequate staffing.

    Service was great, the Red fish special was excellent. Our server and the greeter exceeded our expectation of service. They were nice enough to acknowledge my husband’s birthday. Will definitely visit again when back in New Orleans.

    Our friends recommended this restaurant and we are so glad they did. This was a great dining experience. We started with some delicious handcrafted cocktails. Our starter was the Gumbo which rivaled the best we ever had. Our entree was the Red Fish special and it was amazing. And the only thing as good as the food was the attentive service. We will definitely be back!

    Where do I start? Came in a few minute prior to my reservation at 5:30. Grabbed a cocktail at the bar for happy hour and the price was great. The manager at the front door was more than happy to seat me then but I let him know I was waiting on my wife. Once sat, Ryan came on by and let us know he'd be taking care of us. Every selection, from the blue crab raviolo to the salted caramel flan to the summer Negroni, every bite and sip was delicious. Chef Chris even stopped by and asked how things were. Such a great dinner.

    Our appetizer of gumbo wasn’t even warm to start, and was actually tasteless. Super disappointing :( The cocktails weren’t as expected either. On the other hand, our server was great and super professional! The place is also beautiful inside. The food quality just needs to step up to the plate and match the price!

    I’m so thankful we got in with a last minute reservation for brunch , and even a bit earlier! I loved the live music, the prices for quality of food and drink is outstanding. We had bloody Mary’s, wine and mimosa. For food we tried the peach n cream waffles, fried Brussels sprouts, cream cheese grits, goat cheese salad. We loved every bite. Our server was nice enough, there was a long wait after sitting before we were helped, but we weren’t in a rush so no problem. I’d definitely go back for brunch and even try dinner, I loved it

    The breakfast options and quality were great. Their cocktails and especially their Bloody Mary options were very good. Their location, art, and service were exceptional. Next time I am in New Orleans Atchafalaya will be a must stop. Can’t wait to go back to try their dinner menu.
