From top to bottom, drinks to appetizers, to soup, to entree, all were amazing. Service was elegant and not rushed. We loved our mint julep, appetizer and garlic soup. I had a phenomenal pork chop and my daughter had a white fish. It was a perfect finish to our first day in this town.

We initially chose this restaurant because of the outdoor courtyard. They weren't serving dinner out there (still too hot in the season) but were nice enough to let us have our cocktails outside before dinner. Cocktails were great, and dinner was fantastic! I'm not a huge creole/Cajun fan, so this was a nice change of pace for me. We got... More

We had high expectations of the restaurant and the service was very good. The food was really delicious. We shared a wonderful crab cake with some salad greens and heritage tomatoes topped with a light and tangy dressing. We also split a delightful crispy quail salad with a a rich sweet dressing and toasted pecans. My husband's main was lamb... More

We enjoy New Orleans in August because of the great Coolinary Month menus at local restaurants and not as many crowds. We had not dined at Bayona on our previous trips. We totally enjoyed the experience. Excellent service the minute we walked in the door. An interesting menu, cooked to perfection, and served with style. The Basil ice cream for... More

We went to Bayona with friends who have lived in New Orleans for years. We were seated upstairs. We were pleased that we were able to carry on a conversation which is not always possible in popular restaurants. We had two servers who took care of our table. The Bayona salad was simply delicious, My husband and I had the... More

We took advance of the "Coolinary" menu which is a special offered by many restaurants during the month of August. WELL, let me tell you we... More

My wife and I had dined at Bayona two years ago and had a wonderful evening. We were greeted by the hostess who seated us in a veranda and offered us specialty cocktails while we waited for our table. The food and service were first rate and we were made to feel very special. So we had very high expectations... More

Now, we have found really great food and service in a town famous for both. Being famous for and delivery are usually two separate points. Not in this restaurant, they deliver it all. Creative drinks, exciting food and signature service. I will always return when in NO.

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.
