Great food!

Loved the food, Tuna from the lunch menu with an Olives topping. Also tried the alligator appetizer, was tasty!!! Just had to wait a bit for the bill. But loved that the service was very courteous. We weren't rushed and were able to enjoy the meal. Interesting ambiance.

One of my favorite restaurants! Never disappoints. Beautiful New Orleans/French Creole/Cajun atmosphere and food. Have been here many times with friends and family and we have tried practically everything on the menu. Great for lunch or dinner. Great Pre Fixe Menu for under $20 offered for dinner during most weekdays. This is my favorite of the three sister restaurants (Bayou,... More

I live in the vicinity of Bayou but never had a meal there. In a celebratory mood today, my honey and I decided to stop by Bayou to have lunch. I loved the seating, decor, and the overall atmosphere. I ordered a margarita, and we both shared the sweet potato and andouille fritters and the crawfish nachos for starters, and... More

The alligator bites were perfectly cooked, salad dressed to perfection. And there fresh brewed iced teas are a must have with the summer heat

Loved the seating in Bayour and the overall atmosphere. The food was excellent - I even tried the alligator! Bayou, Beso, Blue - all the same owner and all are great places on Staten Island. Go with Bayou if you prefer the Cajun menu.

I have been to Bayou many times for lunches and dinners, however I bought a gift certificate for a family member for brunch here and when he couldnt stop raving about it decided to try it also. I went with 7 friends including 2 teenagers. This was the best brunch any of us have ever had. I had the chicken... More

This is probably the most unique restaurant in Staten Island. The food and atmosphere couldn't be better. We decided not to take our small children and go on a date night which seems to be the right move. The atmosphere is darker New Orleans perfect for couples and adults. I've had chicken gumbo all over the South and must say... More

My wife and I had the prix fixe, $21 for three tasty courses. Good service, tasty food, a pretty loud band in the front didn't bother as we sat in the back.

We went there with 7 people and had as appetizers, Nachos,mussels and sweet potato fritters-all great. For entrees we had the Jambalaya, Ribs, Cajun Snapper and another seafood dish in a crock. Two of us had the chicken gumbo. All the food was outstanding. Service was efficient and timely and decor very nice. Lastly, you could hear each other's conversation.
