We have been here twice. The first time Chef Susan was there, this visit she was not. There were many issues with our meal and service level. It just feels like the staff, front and back of the house, needed leadership. Chef Susan needs to spend more time there. Not sure I would go back. For the cost there are... More

Have been here many times over the years and it is safe to say that they have not lost a step. The food is Susan Spicer at the top of her game. We were especially taken with the sweetbreads in a creole mustard sauce, the signature rabbit dish that gives a nod to New Orleans for influence, and the hanger... More

We have been following Susan Spicer since she opened Savoir Fair in the Garden District. She never disappoints. Although this restaurant has been opened for quite awhile, it never gets tired or worn and the consistency of solid service and wonderful food remains a delight. One must experience the dining delights to appreciate the talent and artistry that goes into... More

Great taste and perfectly cooked, you have to try the apple pie for dessert! One of the best restaurant in New Orlean.

The service was superb, the food killer. If I lived in NOLA I'd be a regular. All that was missing was live piano jazz. I had the Wild Alaskan Salmon with choucroute and gewurztraminer sauce with baby potatoes and asparagus, glass of pinot noir, to die for fig cake with homemade pear sorbet and a fantastic apple tea for a...

Was so looking forward to a great lunch; unfortunately, we left disappointed. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the hostess was so polite and they were offering 24 cent Martini's. What's not to be excited about?! We had 2 lemon drop Martini's to start. Small but tasted good. When you look at the menu, only on certain days, they offer a... More

We were recommended to go to Bayona by friends who visited some years ago. Frankly, I was very disappointed. I agree with another reviewer who said that this place is trading on its reputation. I had the sweetbreads as a starter and they were freshly cooked and good, my wife pleased with her pork belly. My main was the duck,... More

Everything about Bayona was exquisite. The food was extraordinarily delicious. We had the veal sweetbreads, cream of garlic food and veal loin. Good wine variety too. The service was diligently cordial. However, I encountered a bit of a snobbish attitude from the hostesses.

Although a little noisy, that didn't interfere with our dinner with family and friends. The food was simply excellent and we had a variety of food to choose from.

Enjoyed a great dinner with an associate from work. Pork chop and duck were delicious and heirloom tomato tart was off the chain. Good bourbon selection too.
