Our concierge had suggested a few places but we hadn't booked anywhere and so we were really pleased when we were greeted with a smile and a welcome. This is a lively but not huge establishment and so is a relaxed experience. The food we had was delicious and faultless. Combined with attentive and very helpful service this made for... More

If you are a regular they have one side of the menu as new dishes. They also have one side on old favorite entrees. It's a beautiful location and great service.

This place is living off it's past. Do not eat here. My wife and I both had different choices and both lunch meals were terrible. Dessert was equal to the meals and this use to be a standout here.

Bayona serves up some of the most amazing flavors, and is one of the top flavor experiences that I have had. The meal began with some wonderfully marinated olives and delicious bread. For appetizers, the smoked quail is superbly cooked and served with pecans and a balsamic drizzle, and the miso eggplant dish was full of flavor. The duck main... More

They had a special for Bastille Day, no corkage fee. They have an extensive wine list, but fortunately we brought a bottle they didn't offer. My wife needs a gluten-free diet, and our waitress Jane helped her navigate the menu. We shared a quail salad, I had a pork chop (very moist) and my wife had the snapper. The cheese... More

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
