Cajun Heaven

Great cocktails, especially the Sangria. Creative Cajun dishes that never disappoint. Efficient service. Energetic atmosphere. Live music some nights. You'll love this place.

This place is one of the trifecta of eateries owned by the same guy; Besso, Blue and this Cajun themed spot. Like all three this place is quite good. It's get crowded and you likely will have to wait but nice you get seated it will have been worth it. I like the gator bites and the pork dishes and... More

Bayou is located on Staten Island's own Restaurant Row, that stretch of Bay Street that includes Rosebank, Clifton and Stapleton. There is a lot of fine cuisine to be had here. Bayou opened our meal with fresh baked bread and butter. The bread was warm, soft and delicious. The salad that followed had greens, yellow raisins, tomatoes and julienne cut... More

Great menu and variety. All the food is consistently good. Not your run of the mill cuisine. Only complaint is that it is not a very comfortable restaurant. The tables are close so you can hear everyone's conversations.

We visited the restaurant after we saw it feature in a local TV channel. What a wonderful surprise to experience this type of cuisine locally. We enjoyed very much our Hurricane drink (although it's not Pat O'Brien's). We shared an appetizer of gator sausage on a bed of wonton, very tasty. My husband had a pork cop stuffed with crawfish...

When my husband and I still lived on SI, Bayou was always our favorite restaurant. We moved several years ago, but on rare occasions have an opportunity to still visit Bayou. Yesterday we were there for the first time in probably two years. This place is still great! Never disappoints. Desiree was our server and she was very polite and... More

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.
