Everything was SPECTACULAR!!!! We had a party of 6 for my mom’s birthday. The setup was beautiful. Our server was awesome and Chef Ramsey even came out to greet us. He later returned with a glass of champagne for my mom. It was the sweetest gesture & MOST appreciated! We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch and would HIGHLY recommend!!! The steak & eggs were delicious and the waffle comes out beautifully plated. Wonderful hospitality here!!! THANK YOU CHEF RAMSEY & ALL THE STAFF!!!

From the moment we walked in, the staff was warm and welcoming. Chef stopped by the table to explain some of the specials and menu features. When you talk about reconstituting figs in red wine, I’m all in! Fancy words for fancy food but it is kept casual and classy at the same time. All ingredients were exceptionally fresh and flavorful. It did not disappoint!!

My boyfriend (Greg) and I came her Sunday night to celebrate a few things. A new career change for him and our anniversary. It was a little later then we’d like for dinner but as traditional locals we were running around all day & this was a spur of the moment kinda day for us. So we took advantage of that & got there right around 7:50 pm. Greg has been their prior, he knew I would love it. I quickly made reservations online while we were on our way (which was super simple). When we arrived. The building itself is super adorable, I was so intrigued. We walked in & was greeted by one of the owners immediately. Very sweet women. I told her I think we have reservations I’m not sure if I succeeded. Apparently it worked & she walked us to our table. As we walked to our table I really took in the ambiance & was smiling ear to ear. I got really excited and said this is so beautiful. She smiled & began to explain how they do things for brunch & for diner, catering to each dinning experience. I was being a dork and fell completely in awe. Our waiter greeted us with water and suggested some drinks from the bar. I’m a huge wino so I got a Cabernet, Greg a beer that he later switched to a Malbec. We ordered two appetizers. the green tomatoes & the deviled eggs. Oh my goodness they were outstanding. Greg is not a deviled egg fan but the flavor profile was amazing because it had a hint of roasted salmon not to mention the beautiful plating. So delicious. Next we ordered our entrees I had the fish entree and Greg had an enormous pork chop. Both cooked perfectly and prepared exquisitely .. Everything was so simultaneously perfect. It was a beautiful evening. We had absolutely no room for desert but Greg and I love trying new things so we split a (herbal) after dinner cocktail and had so much fun trying it. Definitely something in itself that makes this place so unique. Louis our waiter was hilarious but also very professional and sweet... Best hidden secret for date night

We usually love this restaurant, so it’s very hard for me to give a bad review. However, we had 7pm reservations but did not get our dinner until after 9. The chef came out around 8 or so to apologize and said there was a glitch in the computer. He gave us some Hard boiled eggs, which was nice. I was

While there we heard a dog loudly barking in the bar area.
A barking dog has no place inside a public restaurant.

This was the First time being back to Atchafalaya since COVID-19 and Wow! One of the best meals I have had from there. The Daily Special was the Pork Chop and it was amazing. The staff, service, and overall experience was excellent. I live in the neighborhood and so good to see Atchafalaya open again.

Hallelujah! Atchafalaya is back open (with table distancing of course). We greatly enjoyed our midafternoon combination lunch/dinner, now possible with the new hours of operation. I've never had a bad dish here, but be sure to always inquire about the soup du jour. It was, indeed, a happy occasion.

Was just what the doctor ordered. I spent a good while on open table, sifting through. It was our 12 year anniversary. We love uptown the most, so, something new with regular tables. Not sitting in someone else’s lap. Off the regular path.
We had a few apps. Oysters stood out, the fish was cooked good and pork chop was great.
The note worthy was the amazing blue cheese flan. Flipping awesome. We bought two more to go. Thanks again!
