I took my sister here for her 60th birthday along with another friend. I had hoped for a better table since I booked in advance, but we were right by the reception desk. Service should have been better for a restaurant of this level - we had to ask to get water glasses filled. All that said, the food was... More

It's been over a week and my husband is still raving about the veal sweetbreads! Our servers were excellent. I'm going to try and recreate their Stormy Monday cocktail, yum. The location on Dauphine Street is great - you are away from the noise and crowds wondering Bourbon and Royal and the ambiance is very relaxing. It was too chilly... More

This beautiful restaurant fits the New Orleans classic "top tier" stereotype in all the right ways. It's in the French Quarter. It is an old, elegant, well appointed structure. Plentiful staff. Beautiful outdoor porch. Fabulous food. We started off in an ante room off the entrance that looked out on the patio and immediately felt as if we were in... More

It is located in the French Quarter on Dauphine directly across from the Dauphine Orleans our favorite New Orleans boutique hotel. We had Lamb, Sweetbreads and a Pear tart for desert. The wine list is extensive. Service excellent and attentive. The atmosphere is quiet allowing forconversation. Be... More

Exquisite environment; quiet and elegant. The duck dish I had (sorry, can't remember what it was called) was truly one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. My husband had the rabbit; not as incredible as the duck, but he enjoyed it. We shared the chocolate crepe for dessert: SO good.

We had a large group dining at Bayona, and with arrangements made in advance, the restaurant did such a great job handling our tables. We know that with so many people it is difficult to provide the kind of intimate dining experience that you get with just two or four, but Bayona did a great job keeping up with us.... More

If one would like an upscale dinner, the service is impeccable. The cocktails were superb. Extensive wine list. Appetizers and pork chop were delicious. Hanger steak will not be my first choice next time.

Even though we had a private dinner at Bayona, Champagne Henri Giraud paired beautifully with a menu that leaves me breathless. I highly recommend a visit ASAP. I would go to New Orleans, dine at Bayona and return to Atlanta the same day. That's how much I LOVE the food, service and the amazing wine list!!

We liked just about everything at Bayona, but the service was more than a little on the slow side.` Bayonne came highly recommended to us for food an atmosphere. It is a smaller (read intimate) restaurant named after the Spanish designation for the nearby street. It is only a block from Bourbon street, but Dauphine has none of the chaos... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
