First of all, know that I am a local and have eaten at this restaurant numerous times over the years. It is one of my favorites. I love the food and atmosphere. Because of all of these things the experience we received yesterday was an extreme disappointment. I was there with 8 coworkers celebrating a birthday. There was also large... More

One of the better restaurants in Lafayette in my opinion. The main dining room has large windows overlooking a garden. The seafood is well prepared and fresh.

Friends met up to catch up. We knew Cafe V was quiet enough for pleasant conversation but we also benefited from excellent service and good food at reasonable prices. Winning dishes were Wedge Salad and Scallops.

This restaurant is a great place for a date, for a business luncheon, or anytime you just want great food and to feel pampered. It is not a place to show up in shabby clothes, or shorts. While business casual and even nice jeans would work, you'll certainly feel right at home in your Sunday best. Go. Enjoy the food.... More

I can say with a great degree of confidence that their gumbo and jambalaya are excellent. I tried them both.

I went to this place during their summer concert series and the menu options were perfect but for the price the food was scarce. The entree seemed to be a standard appetizer, but it was of good quality. The interior is great; however, the location is surrounded by several fast food restaurants so the outside area seems cheap.

Cafe Vermilionville has been in business for many years and when you visit you understand why. They understand that having first class atmosphere (thinks crisp white table linens), old school charm (classic plantation home decor) and excellent service is important, but it's the food that keeps people coming back. For our anniversary dinner we shared the lobster sauté appetizer, which... More
