Always a hit!!!!!

Wonderful restaurant in Staten Island. They have great specials on certain nights. I come here frequently with my boyfriend and have never had a bad meal. Service is always friendly and prompt. My favorites are the ribs, and my boyfriend loves their various seafood dishes. Always a hit!!!!!

Have been here numerous of times for lunch and dinner. Food has been prepared phenomenally well each time. My favorite appetizers are the wings,the accompanying blue cheese dip trascends the food to a new level of delicious.

We visit friends on Staten Island quite often and select Bayou for dinner. We appreciate that they do take reservations as many restaurants here for some reason do not. This is a tiny restaurant and while waiting for our table we sat at the bar and enjoyed "Key Lime Martinis" , delicious. Unfortunately, the table reserved for us was the... More

This is not the first time we have been to Bayou. Reservations are accepted and should be made. New Orleans decor give it a quaint look. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria. It was plentiful and very tasty. We ordered the avocado with calamari appetizer and the sweet potato Andouille fritters. Both were delicious. We ordered the crawfish ettouffe and... More

Had two great meals here. Appetizers are different and tasty. Try the alligator fritters for sure, and any of the beef entrees. Had a seafood special that was off the hook as well. A must for a great, not-the-same old dinner. Good wine list, too, and awesome cocktails.

I usually visit on or around Mardi Gras time. Having family in New Orleans, eating at Bayou brings back fond memories of family dinners. While I haven't had everything on the menu, I have had a variety of items. Alligator bites and Bourbon St. Crab cakes are my favorite appetizers. Big Easy pork chop ,crawfish ettouffe and blackened catfish are... More

We have been to this restaurant several times, and it always has been consistently good. Our waitress, Desiree, was very attentive and professional, and offered excellent suggestions. We shared an appetizer and each had an entree, one fish, one meat, from the specials of the day, both excellent. They offer several different sangrias at a moderate price, and the ones... More

I have yet to try some of the spots on Bay Street, but so far this place is hands down fantastic. My girlfriend and I have eaten here four or five times and we've never been disappointed in the least. Cool atmosphere, good service, and really great food at legit prices. I highly recommend that you try it out.
