Went to Bayona last night for perhaps the fifth time over many years. Has always been one of our favorite places to eat in NOLA. Had a late reservation and had to wait an additional 20 minutes to be seated. Place is still lovely, especially out in the couryard. Servers were initially very prompt and attentive, but as the night grew, became slower and slower. Gap between salads and entrees was perhaps 45 minutes, and frankly this did not appear to be just to allow us to savor the food. We eventually grew a bit anxious, and after several requests got our entrees. Food was excellent as always (if not a bit cool, agreed by everyone - wondering how long it had been sitting) but then had another long wait for dessert. Have eaten in many wonderful restaurants around the world and this was a bit much frankly. Hopefully it was just an off night, but our dining companions had never been before to Bayona and were unfortunately were not impressed. We will be back in the future but hope this is not a trend.
