Excellent and creative cuisine.

The food was excellent, and not the typical New Orleans cajun/creole fare, although the dishes were clearly inspired by the heritage of New Orleans.

Bayona was really an excellent restaurant. Both the service and the food was exceptional. If you are a foodie you will love this place. The atmosphere was lovely but unpretentious, a very comfortable enjoyable setting with fabulous food.

Recommended by a local French Quarter cookbook store owner. He said good food, good atmosphere, and good service at a reasonable price. He was right on all accounts. Also a little off Bourbon Street and all it's craziness.

Susan Spicer is a wonderfully creative chef - even after 25+ years. Her menu was divided into two sides - one containing special dishes and the other side her standards. The salmon was exceptional, as was the grouper. We are still talking about the garlic soup! And I can't say enough about her wait-staff, who took the time to explain... More

We've now been here twice and that's saying a lot! There are so many good restaurants on our New Orleans list that we don't often visit one twice. Bayona was worth a second visit. Pricey, but worth it for a special night out. The attention to detail in their dishes is evident.

We were really looking forward to visiting Bayona for dinner as we'd heard so much about it. Our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately. The service at the beginning of the meal held great promise. I started with the grilled shrimp which were tasty and cooked perfectly. My wife enjoyed the garlic soup which was try and delicious....

We enjoyed lunch here today. The BBQ shrimp and grits were amazing ... So fresh and rich. I've never enjoyed tastier vanilla ice cream. Ask about the anniversary quarter martinis. That's right, $.25 for a martini.

Everything, from the appetizer to the dessert was wonderful! The service was beyond excellent, and the kitchen accommodates dietary (and pickiness) needs. We met Chef Spicer and she was genuine and gracious. It was a delight to dine there.

Set in the French Quarter in New Orleans , this restaurant came highly recommended so we were expecting an awesome meal. The service was great and the complimentary pickled vegetables and bread to start were very tasty and a nice touch I had the green leaves salad with parmigiano reggiano to start. The vinaigrette was delicious but the cheese was... More
