We got a local recommendation and it proved really great! The food was outstanding. The soaps were unique and delicious. The special entre dishes were well thought of, onterestingly planned and delicious! The service was outstanding. My wife did not like the Apple Sorbeft and it was immediately replaced, actually on the waitress initiative. Highly recommended!!!!

We had a delicious meal here. We were seated in the wine room. It was cozy and romantic. Our servers were helpful and attentive. The food was excellent. The mushroom and goat cheese crouton alone was worth the trip. My peppered lamb was beautifully cooked. It was close enough to Bourbon Street to still be in the action, but far... More

I went here late in the day and that was one of my problems ( they were out of the lemon custard / blood orange sorbet dessert i wanted). Do not get me wrong, i can see how great everything is here and did not have a bad meal, just not overly impressed. The Duck Heart Boudin special appetizer came... More

Bayona, in a slightly quieter area of the French Quarter, is a delightful restaurant. The service is outstanding. The food, simply delicious. The restaurant itself is a very pleasant space. All-in-all -- a great restaurant which can absolutely serve as a reason for traveling to New Orleans (if you didn't have others!).

Based on other reviews, and from personal interaction with someone we met on the street, we had very high expectations for Bayona. Maybe too high. Everything met or exceeded our expectations, except for some of the food preparation. The staff was very efficient and friendly, and the ambience is very nice. As our evening began, we believed that we were... More

Bayona is one of those New Orleans restaurants, with the talented chef, Susan Spicer, that I always wanted to experience, but for one reason or another had never had the opportunity. While visiting New Orleans over the holidays, I was able to secure a table for our New Years eve dinner. It was fabulous! The service was top-notch, the food... More

This is a truly first-class dining experience. From the initial greeting at the door to the salutations on leaving, this was exceptional. The service, the cocktails, the food and the wine list - wow! If we lived in NOLA and had more money we would be regulars!

I avoided this restaurant for many years, because the menu always seemed boring. Finally tonight when I was in the city alone and looking to try a new place, I felt it was worth the risk. Obviously, I approached the experience with a negative bias toward the food, but that was a mistake--the food definitely was excellent, and I started... More

I can't help myself. Bayona delivers what all top tier restaurants in New Orleans and elsewhere promise. A first rate dining experience that one would like to repeat. A recent four day trip allowed me to sample some of the best that New Orleans has to offer. Bayona was the best by far. Over my many years of eating, and... More
