Returned to Bayona last night for another memorable meal. The wine list, too, is always well selected and the desserts quite sophisticated. Almost everything this place does shows a forethought and follow through that is better than 95% of restaurants. A real delight.

Dinner on a crowded Thursday. I have been 15+ times and always return every trip. I've had sweetbreads all over the world. These are if not the best in the top 3. Always perfectly cooked, incredibly tender and perfectly seasoned. Either prep is great. Must try! Rabbit roulade was choice for dinner off the daily menu. Again perfect execution, seasoning,...

I love Bayona. We have been coming to this restaurant each time we have visited New Orleans over the years, and we are never disappointed. The sweetbreads are absolutely wonderful. We ate here twice this visit. Everything we ordered was so delicious. But what I like best about this restaurant is the relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. I hope this... More

At $25 for 3 plates (ANY 3) this is THE place to go. Ambiance: subdued refinement. We were in the patio which, when the weather is nice, cannot be beat - the tables are all with umbrellas, and separated nicely. Service: efficient, knowledgeable. Food: Very close to the top you will find in this city. For the confit duck and... More

Very disappointing meal due to slow, slow service. Got drink order wrong. Three of us served while the fourth person waited a good 15 minutes longer for her appetizer even though it was the same as another member of our party. Check was calculated incorrectly. Appetizer computed as an entree. Food was good, not great. Would not recommend.

Enjoyed a fine dinner here while visiting NOLA with friend and family. The quail salad was very good and the steak entrée was wonderful. Menu changes weekly I understand. Service was very good. I would recommend at least one dinner here if you have the opportunity and the budget and staying in New Orleans for several days. If I felt... More

My sister and I visited for dinner during a short vacation. We had a team of two waiters, both very friendly & knowledgeable. We were brought a pickled veggie plate that rocked our world. Each veggie seemed to have a differ flavor from masala cauliflower to orange scented carrots. I had the crispy smoked quail salad that satisfied all salty,... More

Lunch was a nice culinary outing well worth the walk to this quieter street in the FQ. The courtyard wasn't that spectacular but the inside was nice and simple. The food was not at all fussy but it was hard to deny the subtle sophistication in the cooking. Highly recommended.

We loved our first meal in NOLA here. The service and food was wonderful. We would recommend this restaurant on a quiet street in the french Quarter. Loved the rabbit and the pork chop.

Knowing Spicer's reputation for having dragged New Orleans from a diet of all Cajun towards farm-to-table, we were anticipating a fantastic meal. While the food was indeed enjoyable and certainly expertly prepared and plated, the overall experience left much to be desired. We are pretty adventurous eaters, however it should be noted that the menu had no vegetarian options and... More
