A Bit of Louisiana on the NY Bay

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... read 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.

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
