My husband and father had the 4 some: jambalaya, gumbo, red beans and rice and one more soup that I forgot. They loved it and will get it again! The service was spectacular and the location is right across from Galatoires, so... More

The Cajun Bloody Mary oysters are awesome!!! Our oyster bar waiter was incredibly fun, Preston made our visit fun and gave us good recommendations for dessert! Try the fried cheesecake, you won't be disappointed! The beer is cold too!

We went to Le Bayou twice whilst in New Orleans because their menu and flavours were so good. We sat at the marble bar instead of a table and could chat to other people next to us. The Shrimp with Cajun pesto was the best of all the meals but we couldn't fault any of our meals. The staff are... More

We didn't expect much from a bar type restaurant on Bourbon Street. We were very surprised. We were in New Orleans for just 3 nights and ended up here for dinner on two of them. My wife had the sampler platter. It was wonderful. She tried similar dishes at other restaurants for lunch and none of them compared. I had... More

We have eaten at Le Bayou twice now and it's very good. On Bourbon Street and it is not noisy. We sat upstairs and if you have a small party, you can sit outside overlooking Bourbon Street.

Stopped by for an early (5pm) dinner. Restaurant was almost empty and we were seated near the front of the restaurant facing Bourbon street. Out of all the empty tables, we were seated next to a table where a prospective employee was filling out a job application and being interviewed. That was weird and really knocked points off the ambiance.... More
