My girls and I were planning a dinner date and we narrowed it down to 4 restaurants. I'm so glad it was this. The service was awesome and the food was delicious. We had reservations and we seated immediately. Not bad for a Friday night....More

This place had all the makings of a nice dinner after a conference, but instead disappointed. My steak was over-cooked, and we didn't have a chance to complain because the patio service was dismal. The beignets were very heavy, so much so that we left...More

Had lunch here with a business associate. Enjoyed some very delicious blackened redfish and he enjoyed grilled redfish with lemon. Both were fresh and delicious. Service was very good and the restaurant was quite busy at lunch hour.

Best deal in town, Prix Fixe menu with $5 drinks inclued Mules, bourdon lemonades, the best seasoned and tasty crawfish etouffee outside of New Orleans. Also, the hit at the table was the charbroiled oysters.

As a one-time temporary Louisianan, I loved the cuisine and ate at some yummy fancy places in New Orleans, but I liked my Cajun locations to be pretty non-fancy. Acadiana describes itself accurately as a "contemporary interpretation of an old-time Louisiana eatery" that I'd have...More
