I just tried to have lunch at Acadiana but was never recognized after being seated promptly. I waited for 20 minutes as wait staff saw I had no water but simply looked the other way. Three managers also walked by and saw I was waiting...More

Listed as American fare, brought back pleasant memories of dining in New Orleans. Ordered the seafood gumbo ( pictured ) and it was divine. New Orleans based drink menu as well.

This was an unforgettable experience for all the right reasons. A superb menu, well presented and served with panache. Highly recommended restaurant in DC itself as opposed to the suburbs

We attended this restaurant with a local Washington resident who recommended the Acadiana. The turtle soup and seafood gumbo are both an interesting dishes and very full flavours. Well worth visiting to try something different at this restaurant

Enjoyed a delicious dinner with friends. The turtle soup and spicy shrimp and grits were perfect. The restaurant decor felt comfortable and contemporary. Lots of dark wood. Tables were spaced apart so other table noise was not intrusive.

Due to road and building construction, it was very difficult getting to the restaurant. 1st time in a while that we couldn't get street parking, but there is $10 valet available. It took a while to get our drinks, but that was the only hiccup....More

The oysters were sweet and spectacular! The rest of the meal was good but portions were limited except for the chicken which was massive!!! Service was good and dress code was more to the casual side than business.
