Came here for a business dinner with three others. The quality of the wait staff here is beyond compare. The range of dinner choices is superb - something for everyone - fish, lamb (excellent!), etc. Nice quiet location, a block north of Bourbon Street

One of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans. We have been coming here since 1996. Never disappoints. Came for New Year's Eve dinner and had an absolutely memorable experience.

My wife and I have been eating at Bayona since late 1990, shortly after they opened. It is consistently very good to outstanding. Food is not typical New Orleans, more world class European. Please do not come here if you are looking for large portions of mediocre food at an inexpensive price; dishes are small, outstanding taste, and expensive. This... More

We ate at Bayona tonight and we're very pleased! Our two ladies server were very attentive! Our four gras were to die for! The Cesar Salad was big for a salad but good. My husband's lamb was very good, I had a bite and I agree with him. Our cappuccino also was hot and good! The room we were placed... More

Delightful staff, lovely decor, interesting cocktails, and food that really makes you want to return and try more dishes. In a city that has so many choices - this was our choice for a night of fine dining in the French quarter.

Disappointing. The decor is nice with an interior terrasse but the food is so-so. I will not come back. My fish was very blend. There are many restaurants in Nola that do a better job. For instance Vacherie or Galatoire for the same price. The restaurant was full and not sure what the fuss was about?! My son had a... More

Recent reviews have been dissatisfied, but our experience was very good. Of three meals we had at known New Orleans restaurants, we thought Bayona was the best. We all started with salads that were great. Our son had sweetbreads that he thought were great. My beef was perfectly done. One friend had salmon that made me wish I had ordered... More

This restaurant serves outstanding food. Our table shared the sweetbreads appetizer and it was delicious. My next course was the garlic soup, and my entree was the salmon. This was undoubtedly one of the best salmon dishes I have ever had. It was perfectly prepared. The whole evening was a great treat so this restaurant is a must in The... More

You should find a way to eat here. My wife, after lunch at Bayona: "If I ever get put on death row, I'm going to tell them I want my last meal to be by Susan Spicer."

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.
