A nice place to eat

We enjoyed a nice dinner at La Bayou. We were a large group and were offered immediate seating at the bar instead of having to wait for a table. The food was good and the beverages of choice were cold on a very warm evening. We had various selections of alligator, jambalaya, shrimp and grits and... read more

It was our last dinner in New Orleans. We both had a very good meal (the mix of 4x cajun food and fried green tomatoes with shrimps), the server, Jabari, was really nice and the wine was good too. Less than 80 dollars for 2 main dishes + bottle of wine + tips = nothing to say about the price.... More

Very old and beautiful place on two floors where you will eat the creole cuisine particularly oyster, crabs and other fish based entrées. It is in the middle of the crowded French quartier in New Orleans

Please note that I am rating this based on my being disabled. If you can climb a long steep staircase your experience may be different. Le Bayou is right on busy Bourbon St and the double doors fronting the street are left open letting in all of the noise and smoke and other unappetizing odors that go with Bourbon St.... More

This place was once the place that had THE best Bloody Mary in town. Not any more. Sadly I revisited Le Bayou bragging about the goodness in a glass that they served only to be terribly disappointed. Ate a half dozen oysters trying to enjoy the place again. The shucker was super nice. Just feel like the place has really... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend 8/13 - 8/17 in New Orleans. We do this a couple of times a year, we are not newbies to Cajun cuisine. We visited our normal restaurant haunts, and decided to try something new on Sunday evening. The host and server were great, smiling faces and prompt service. The food was ok... More
