Excellent restaurant in the French Quarter

Classic French/Creole restaurant. Their Duck PBJ sandwich is excellent. Sounds weird, but the duck and jam work perfectly together. Quiet restaurant and great for lunch meetings.

My wife and I go to Jazz Fest every two years and for the last 10 years make sure to get to Bayona's at least once for dinner and if we have time, get there for lunch (Try the peanut butter sandwich). Great food, good service, comfortable setting. Food is amazing. In my opinion, for the money it is a... More

Ok, if you like masterfully cooked duck, do I (or they) have a dish for you! What? The kid in you is still screaming for the peanut butter and jelly sandwich of your younger years and fighting with the refined yearnings of your grown up pallet's tastes for wilder things? I think this dish can dually satiate these longing. The

Maybe Bayona's service was slow due to the Jazzfest crowds. My party of 4 had 9:30pm reservations. We were able to order drinks fairly quickly. But it took 45 minutes more before our dinner orders were take. Another 15-20 minutes and we received a basket if bread. Eventually we received our dinner but it was after 11pm. Even though Unacceptable.... More

AMEX set-up a great anniversary celebration and Bayona delivered. The entire experience was one of the best ever. The food was outstanding and the staff matched Susan's excellence in the kitchen. Just as good as we remembered during our first year of marriage. Not many restaurants can deliver consistent performance for a year, Bayona has for almost 25 years; and... More

Four of us enjoyed appetizers, seafood or duck, desserts, and fine wine. Service was attentive, friendly, and efficient. The cottage and patio are removed from street scene, and provide a warm & welcoming ambience for good food and conversation. Cost is reasonable for this quality experience. My wife and I love it!

Susan Spicer continues at the top of her game. During a deluge, we had the pleasure of lunching at Bayona. The oyster gratin, crab beignet, hake entree and peanut butter puff pastry desert were all superb in presentation and flavor. Starting with a bloody maria(with a lovely anejo tequila) was the perfect "amuse bouche". Of course - the restaurant's usual... More

Have a very nice meal at this NOLA staple. The menu is split between the classics and daily specials. The sweetbreads were perfectly cooked. We had them with lemon-caper but next time I'd like to try the sherry sauce. Garlic soup was good but after a few spoonfuls I had enough. The brioche was not worth the extra $5 charge.... More
