While roaming on Bourbon Street, I thought of trying some Oysters at this place just because, I could easily get a place at Oyster bar. Ordered a dozen of half-shell oysters. The sauce, served alongside Oysters was amazing and had a wonderful taste. I could have given a 4-star or a 5-star rating, if the bartender at the Oyster bar... More

Had a wonderful server named Erin! Food was great and the restaurant was close to our hotel. Erin took exceptional care of us on our visit and made sure we enjoyed our New Orleans experience.

I had dinner at LA Bayou after working late and found many restaurants in the area were closed. The service was great from the greeter, server and busboy. Server was quick to offer suggestions for my seafood allergies, food was served quick - I had the half chicken with jambalaya and it was just a relaxed environment. Portions are huge!... More

Enjoyed the Blackened Shrimp & Cajun Jambalaya and the Shrimp Creole were big hits at our table. The Shrimp in the Jambalaya were big and tender and bursting with flavor as was the surrounding jambalaya. The shrimp creole was a bowl full of yummy goodness as well. Wanting a desert I highly recommend the Zydeco Fried Cheesecake so delicious and... More

The food is amazing, and the drinks are heavy on the liquor! What more could you ask for? I know! Ask for Aaron to be your server. He's was so sweet and attentive. Le Bayou is the best thing on Bourbon Street. I'm coming back!

This place has great food and good prices. It does not matter where you eat everyone charges an 18% gratuity, so don't be shocked. Try their fried cheesecake it is very tasty. Also their baked oysters are good.

The muffeleta sandwich is AWESOME! Shrimp & grits were good too. A little expensive for quantity of food. Server Aaron was wonderful!

We stumbled upon Le Bayou Restaurant. We were asking the waiter, Aaron, for directions to another restaurant and decided to ditch those plans. We were glad we did! The food was excellent and Aaron provided the best service! We would come back again just to see him!
