I attended a group dinner here a few weeks ago and it was excellent. The service was impeccable, the meal was fantastic, and the chef even made an appearance. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any business group meeting.

When in town, we always have lunch at Bayona on Saturday. For $25, you get to chose three courses from an inventive, delicious menu. Our favorite server, Jane, and her partner always provide fun, prompt, and perfect service. Some of the best food in NOLA...and that is saying ALOT!

On our most recent visit to Bayona the food was great as always, but we were very disappointed with the service. It was a Friday night and there were several large parties already seated. Our waitress didn't seem interested in our table of two. She was very brusque, almost rude. Our drinks and appetizers arrived promptly enough, but then we... More

After 15 years of twice-a-year visits to New Orleans, we finally tried Bayona. Wish we could reclaim those other 30 trips. The food, setting, and service were excellent. Best meal we've ever had in the French Quarter. At least at lunch, the portions are not large but they are perfect. Jane, the lead server, was charming and very knowledgeable. The... More

We are frequent visitor to Spicer's French Quarter location and the fare is always fabulous! The dining room has a comfortable casual-formal vibe with an old New Orleans feel. The classic side of the menu is tried and true but we always order from the "specials" and are never disappointed. Don't be in a hurry though, as the dining experience... More

Had enough jambalaya and red beans and rice? Go Bayona on Dauphine Str. for a welcome change. Lovely, classy decor, in a charming heritage building, a delightful greenery filled patio and professional, friendly knowledgeable staff. Menu is interesting but not daunting. Verde gazpacho scented with cilantro was refreshing. Husband raved over his duck breast. Linguini appetizer would make a wonderful... More

I admit I am a Top Chef Master's watcher and was excited to sample Chef Susan Spicer's cuisine -- absolutely sublime! I had the szcheuan eggplant with shrimp; it was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten! My dining partner had the caesar salad with a delightful lemon-spiked dressing. We were both very satisfied with our entrées: the... More

Fantastic imaginative menu. Amazing small plates. Don't miss the Wild Bread - it is delicious. Looking forward to going back.

Some of those in my party were disappointed because the kitchen had run out (by 9:00 on a Saturday night!) of what they wanted, and then didn't have their second choice either. My choices were all available and excellent however -- sweetbreads, a lovely smoked salmon concoction, and fish with chanterelles and I don't remember what all else, but it... More

Was looking forward to the sweetbreads. My mistake as they were over fried and over salted. My oysters were under-smoked & under heated. The table was never swept & the speed of service was underwhelming. Like watching paint dry. On the way out as we were already disappointed the waiter came out saying we had failed to leave the signed... More
