Recommended by our concierge at Hotel Mazarin for our 5th anniversary dinner, Bayona was only a short walk away and down from Bourbon St. We were treated to a luxurious French-inspired gourmet meal without fuss or pretense. We didn't really know a lot about the chef (she's famous in her world) or the cuisine but the staff was helpful and... More

In a city with so many great restaurants, Bayona is my favorite. Located on a quiet street of Dauphine in the French Quarter this charming restaurant serves up unique and delicious food. Looking for a break from gumbo or turtle soup? Try the cream of garlic, it's amazing. The sweetbreads are divine. Come for lunch and get the cashew butter,... More

Very poor service. The servers mixed up several orders and were unorganized. Food and drinks took forever to arrive. Don't have the steak, it was tough and poorly prepared. Many better restaurants in the area.

Based on earlier reviews , I was really expecting this to be a great place to visit for my sisters birthday. We were a party of 10 and I realize that can be challenging... But , we were all disappointed. Plates were served to the wrong person continuously , drinks were always late, and the food was just ok. When... More

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.
