Our first night in New Orleans, and we landed in Le Bayou. Having lived in the city, and having visited New Orleans countless times, our favorite spots were booked solid, so we rolled the dice & tried Le Bayou. It was a fine meal, but they definitely rely on the tourist trade (a bit of an irony as the entire... More

Delicious. Well priced. The Shrimp and Grits Napolean were unbelievable! And our waiter, Rosco, couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. He was great!

The food was okay, but there are plenty of other places to get better food! It was convenient that the restaurant was on Bourbon Street.

Food was good. Service was just ok and the potions were very small for the price. Location was great.

One of the first restaurants we passed. Stopped and set at the Oyster bar. Tried the Miho better oysters on the half Shell and the shrimp Yaya per the Shuckers recommendation. We enjoyed both. The shrimp Yaya had just the right spice and served with French bread. Good people watching from the bar.

The Oysters Mignonette are worth the price. Much better than the oysters I had elsewhere today at lunch. Tip: try the shrimp ya-ya. We sat at the oyster bar. Ordered a prosecco to go with oysters. Was delivered a pinot grigio. Ordered local amber beer...went well. Caution: language is thrown about here but food good price and tasty
