We were in New Orleans for a couple days with our son and daughter-in-law and it was their first visit to the city. With so many restaurants to choose from we decided Bayona would be a good choice. Although it had been many years since we had eaten there (we had eaten there twice before) we knew it had staying... More

I've been to NOLA many times and food is obviously a big part of every trip. I can say that since coming to Bayona it is always the best meal I have in town. The goat cheese crouton is delicious and I think about it all the time. But everything at Bayona is excellent--including the service. Hands down my favorite... More

New Orleans famous for its magnificent array of restaurants, but often the top-tier chefs shuttle from one eatery (or city) to another, resulting in uneven quality. With Chef Susan Spicer at the helm for 24 years, this is certainly not the case with Bayona. Instead it has earned and maintained a well-deserved reputation for some of the most innovative and...

Hit the spot. Sweetbreads are an absolute must and the quail salad was perfect. Wife had gumbo and ahi tuna. Did not disappoint.

This highly rated place is worth a visit, if you're looking for fine dining, not Creole cuisine. Dinner patrons skew toward business people in office attire. The menu is impressive, but we found the presentations and flavors underwhelming. There is a patio for good weather.

Have the quail salad and the sweetbreads you won't regret it! It's a tough place to go to if you have a finicky meat & potato person with you. Plain/simple food is not an option here.

Bayona is on Dauphine Street, one block off of Bourbon Street. Don't let the location throw you, this place is marvelous. It looks like the owner's remodeled a house and opened their restaurant. The atmosphere is first rate. It is not what I expected, it was better. The food was as good as I have had in New Orleans, and... More

Beautiful spot if you can eat outside. The inside is like most famous Nola eateries: a bunch of small rooms with pretty decor. The appetizers were out of this world, but the entrees always seem to fall short of their promise. Nice place for a romantic soirée though.

We walked past several times and were lured in by the beautiful courtyard seating. I made a reservation for my husband and I for lunch. We were greeted and seated in the beautiful outdoor garden area. Our server was very kind and attentive. He explained to us that it was a “slow” service, which we really liked and is almost... More

The decor is lovely, the service professional and attentive, the food is a bit too exotic for my taste. The menu is extremely limited -- too few entree choices to suit me. My appetizer (duck liver) was overdone but the taste of veal sweet breads I had was perfect. I had a delicate, lovely soup of roasted cauliflower/potato. I probably... More
