Seattle Weekly's Description

Marcela's Creole Cookery rests on Yesler Way and James Street, beckoning tourists and locals alike just off Pioneer Square proper with New Orleans jazz standards piped out into the streets. Marcela's doesn't back down from strong seasonings and exotic proteins just to play nice with a more sensitive palate. There's a lot of great new tastes here you're simply not going to be able to find in your average timidly cajun-themed restaurant's one-note jambalayas or neutered gumbos.

  • Jessica B. on 03/07/11

    With ingredients fresh from NOLA, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. If you like authentic creole/cajun cooking, ask them to surprise you! Great place to impress guests!

  • Ramiro B. on 07/10/09

    Best crawfish I've ever had!

  • Blair G. on 08/14/10

    Great Cajun food for the price! The owners are super awesome, and were kind enough to go through the menu with us, being out first time. Highly recommended French Quarter Sampler:)

  • Richard W. on 12/18/09

    SO many great dishes! The two owners are SO nice too. But I have to say, they have one of THE best pecan pies I've ever eaten (and you can buy a whole one!) This is a MUST do! I usually get poor boy

    Crawfish pie is best thing on the menu. Alligator is good but farmed not wild (tastes like chicken not fish)
