Friendly staff, good food, great drinks, made for a nice anniversary dinner. Booked for 8:30pm on a Sunday night through open table, was surprised to be seated & told the kitchen closed at 9:00pm. We were a little put off by this when told but it did not impact our meal at all. Had a cute anniversary note from the... More

This is another restaurant close to the convention center. With my business schedule, my wife and I were on the lookout for nice restaurants close to my meeting. I met my wife there one day for lunch. The grilled oysters were really great and we split a muffuleta sandwich for our main course. The last night we were in D.C.... More

Definite Louisiana twist to the menu, but perfect in every respect. The right amount of heat in a variety of selections. The service was impeccable and attentive. I had the pork chop with andouille relish which was fabulous, and my wife had the blackened redfish, likewise good. The corn and crab soup was outstanding and the beet salad was very... More

We had a business dinner here and the noise level was conducive to having a conversation. All 5 of us thought the food was excellent. We ordered the seared snapper, heirloom tomato salad, corn and crab chowder, turtle soup, gumbo and oysters. Great meal and great service.

We went here before seeing a play at Ford's Theater. The menu is heavy on Seafood but they were able to work around a seafood allergy without any issues. I've been to restaurants that have really struggled with patroms with allergies even when they have non seafood dishes on the menu. Thankfully this was not one of them. The food... More

We were in DC for business and were looking to have dinner. Two of the four of us had recently been in Philly on business and had had dinner there. In Philly we had one of the best meals I and my partner had ever had. It has become a challenge to find a place as good or better. Acadiana... More

Three of us had the pleasure of dining at Acadiana, a second time, with the same results; an absolutely stupendous dining experience. The service is exceptional as is the food. Three different dishes; veal, beef and shrimp, all flavorful, plentiful and served hot. The appetizers were just as good. Biscuits with pepper jelly as an interlude were wonderful. Next time...

This restaurant is highly overrated and I wasn't pleased st all with the food selections. We had a party of 10 and everyone was disappointed in this restaurant. Hopefully, they have a better taste palette on the food selections.
