We were delighted to find sweetbreads on the menu, and they were delicious (maybe just a touch heavily fried). All of our courses were wonderful. The food was enhanced by a knowledgeable server, who matched our wines perfectly to our food. Loved it and would return.

We had dinner at Bayona with 7 other folks attending the same national meeting as us. We were quickly seated in the main area at a round table. The decor was quaint and the room a bit noisy but still allowed conversation at the table. The waiter was attentive and helpful. We tried the seared scallops with roasted cauliflower, Harissa...

This restaurant had been highly recommended and are expectations were high. Our serving team let us down. We asked for lemons for our water which we never got. After the meal was served no one came back to our table. My lamb which I was told would come medium rare was very rare to the point of being tough to... More

Very disappointing! The food was OK, but the service was awful. Had to ask twice for bread and when they finally brought it, there was a plate with 4 small pieces of dry, tasteless bread. They brought olive oil, but no fresh ground pepper, or vinegar. We waited more than 30 minutes between appetizer and entree and no appearance by... More

We like visiting Bayona for the great cuisine and the specials that are always offered. We dined on the patio. It was lovely there and the weather that night was great. I would recommend any of their items as I think they would all be wonderful. Good wine selection with a dedicated person to help you. Make reservations well in... More

We had heard such good things about Bayona that our mediocre meal this Saturday night was quite a surprise and disappointment. Of our party of 6, only 1 truly enjoyed their meal. He had the trout. Three of had the salmon and were disappointed. I had requested medium rare and it was under-cooked and actually cool when served. Others had... More

In a sea of restaurants all serving sort of the same thing, Bayona puts a slightly different twist on its recipes. I particularly liked the Smoked Duck "PB & J", which is comprised of thinly-sliced duck, cashew butter, and pepper jelly between two slices of toasted wild flour multigrain bread, with an apple-celery salad on the side to cut the...

Came here for a business dinner and sat in the courtyard. Good attentive service and good food. Fish was excellent as were the sweetbreads. Good choice of wine and beers. Would strongly recommend.

We found this restaurant on accident as we got lost trying to find a different place and we are glad we got lost!! Amazing food and spectacular service. The chef should be very proud of his creations. It's Not overly ridiculous prices for 5 star meals, especially for the French Quarter. If I had to nick pick and come up... More

Overal our prix fix unch took over 2 hours and the courses really were sub par from our many previous experiences. The duck in puff pastry was dry and tasted like leftovers mixed with filler, more like a stale thanksgiving stuffing with little or no actual duck. The ricotta tart also tasted like it had been frozen and not fresh,... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
