Good service, good food, no complaints here. Menu isn't anything special, but balcony seating is great for people watching.

My mother and I (tried) to eat at Le Bayou earlier this evening. I ordered a cup of corn and crab bisque and my mother ordered a cup of gumbo. 40+ minutes later, not only did we not have our soups but our waitress had not come by the table to check on us at all. We had to get... More

We actually visited twice during our four-day trip to New Orleans. First because we were hot and thirsty. While enjoying an icy cold Jackomo IPA, we engaged in friendly conversation with bartender, Roger, and another patron. We watched the other man dig into a dish of red beans and rice with chicken and it looked delicious. So, instead of waiting... More

After we were turned away from a very rude hostess at Deanie's (my husband was wearing a sleeveless (not tank) shirt), we wandered down the street and inquired at Le Bayou if he was properly attired. We were welcomed warmly and were delighted with the Boudin Sausage we ate! It was a recommendation and was delish! The staff was extremely... More

We went to Le Bayou on Monday, so it wasn't crowded. We had the boudin appetizer and cajun jambalaya with spicy shrimp. The flavors were very good. We are tourists in NOLA, but we have an excellent cajun restaurant near our home in FL, so we were able to compare. I prefer roux - based jambalaya to the cajun style... More

We stopped here because it was very convenient to our hotel, but were glad we did. Food was well prepared, service was above average, and prices (considering the location) were reasonable.

My wife and I ate at Le Bayou in Bourbon Street this past Sunday evening, and our experience was mixed. We were seated upstairs with a group, and the food was good overall, but service was lacking. We requested water with drinks, which took too long to receive, the people actually delivering food to each table would constantly come up... More

We went for Mardi Gras and thought we wouldn't be able to get a table. We only waited in line for 10 minutes because the staff is so great at clearing up the tables in great time. It was an amazing experience. Fried tomatoes, crawfish, gumbo, etc. Try a hurricane when you go. Prices are average for a seafood place.... More

I went here for the alligator po boy sandwich and was severely disappointed by the dish. My hurricane was delicious and strong but expensive. However; my alligator was barely recognizable as it was too deep fried. The sandwich had too much bread although the bread was fresh and delicious. There was a huge amount of fries. Almost too much fried... More
