“Don't waste a New Orleans dining experience here”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Although we moved from New Orleans 15 years ago, we still consider ourselves locals and try to get back a couple of times a year. During a recent long weekend, we tried Evangeline because of the good reviews we saw online. We were very disappointed. We were the ONLY people eating in the restaurant and there were 2 people at the bar - that should have been the tip-off. The service was adequate, food was okay, but a 20% gratuity was added to our bill - for a table of 4! When we asked the server about the tip being added to the bill, she said "the manager put that on there" I asked if the 20% gratuity was published anywhere and without further explanation she said that she would take it off. With so many other options for dining so close to where Evangeline is located, I would not recommend that you waste a dining experience here.

“Service Plus!”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Try the Oysters they are divine! Love the decor here, its a very cool laid back bar/ restaurant with a classy feel. The male staff member was very customer friendly making us feel at home. Would easily go back!

“Great food!”
Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

We could not get a reservation anywhere and were lucky enough to get a table at Evangeline. The staff was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendations. The shrimp and grits my friend had was wonderful. I had the catfish jambalaya which was spicy but also great tasting. We had live music while we ate as well. It's nicely located away from the crazy bourbon street area but an easy walking distance...we also saw a huge strawberry shortcake being delivered right before we left:..decadent I'm sure. Great Experience!!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 17 April 2013 via mobile

Looked like a charming little place in the French quarter but unfortunately that's all it appeared to be. Service was terrible, bartender didn't know how to make a proper drink and food was just ok. People at the table next to us were never waited on and they ultimately got up and left. Will not go back!

Quaint place on Decatur with fabulous service, great food and amazing drinks! The Bacon Mary was great and they have a great selection of local brews. A must see while you are in New Orleans!
