I had made reservations the night before but in true New Orleans style the party increased and the restaurant handled it excellently. We were sat quickly and even though it was busy we were well attended and taken care of. Everything about Bayona is first class, the servers and the atmosphere to begin. The wine list was impressive and now... More

I went with a group of new friends while on business, one of whom saw this place and wanted to eat here. No guidance, no reviews, she just thought it looked great. I gulped a little at the prices, but went on in. I'm so glad I did. All of us has stupendous meals, from the best fish one woman... More

Bayona's was the perfect place to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and find respite from a hot afternoon of shopping in the French Quarter. We began our meal with the Eggplant caviar and delicious bread basket. The Rabbit roulade stuffed with artichoke filling was tender and scrumptious. Delightful dining room and attentive wait staff.

My husband and I ate dinner at Bayona on Bastille Day. Our servers were fabulous. The food was delicious. My husband had the pork chop with greens and I had the hanger steak with asparagus and potatoes. The sauce drizzled over the steak was amazing. We really enjoyed this meal.

Classically great French restaurant. The food, wine, service and ambiance was all first class. In a city of fine restaurants, this is among the best. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Very good food! Especially the starters. Worth the money. The waitress was great... she made us feel at home immediately.

Excellent service, quite formal but intimate and nice ambience. Food was excellent, French with local flair and ingredients - refreshing to see a female chef at the top of her game too!

Bayona is a treat -- a perfect European style oasis from the crowds of Bourbon street with fantastic food (Ooooh, the crispy quail! The rabbit!) and a truly outstanding wine list (heavy on wines from Alsace and Burgundy). We had a group and the perfect small wine room. Service was outstanding, the food even more so, and Chef Susan Spicer... More

A stone´s throw from the main drag (at 430 Rue Chartres) I recommend this restaurant heartily to those looking for a bit of class combined with excellent food. A lovely, comfortable, quiet dining room, tended by charming staff. spectacular food in the French style. Good wine selection at farly reasonable prices for a place of this caliber. I paid around...

While the food was good, it was not at all memorable for a New Orleans meal. I ate there just three nights ago and can hardly remember what I had. The staff was friendly, but the overall meal is simply not one I will remember, even though it was my first trip to New Orleans.
