We had three dinners included in our New Orleans tour - the other two, Arnauds and the Palm Court Cafe didn't come close to Bayona. The food was excellent. We had a delicious seafood in phyllo pastry, followed by a nice salad and perfectly cooked scallops. I had a chocolate panna cotta for dessert which was delicious. This is the... More

This was a very nice restaurant. Our server was quite professional. Very nice decor. In good weather the outdoor dining would be nice.The menu was full of odd choices... I couldn't find an entree that appealed to me so I got a salad. My daughter had a safe steak. We did get dessert...King cake and sorbet. Both desserts were very... More

Had not been back for a while. Made up for it by coming back two days in a row. Can't beat their 3 course lunch with flowing Champagne for $28. Don't miss their signature garlic soup/

My wife and I were fortunate enough to find this place with the help of the hotel concierge. It was just what we wanted - a romantic spot, excellent food, and a not unreasonable price. Despite all the options in the area we would go back again.

One of the French Quarter venerable go-to restaurants. If you go for lunch, you must have the Smoked Duck "PB&J." It's made with smoked duck, cashew butter, and pepper jelly and served with an apple-celery salad/slaw; it's amazing and able to be recreated at home! For dinner, the Veal Sweetbreads are some of the best you'll ever have - served... More

Pretty setting, but this restaurant has been serving the same unimaginative dishes for the past 20 years. A French Quarter favorite with upscale tourists, but there are much better meals to be had at Doris, R'Evolution and other newer eateries in the neighborhood. I doubt I will return.

As foreigners we were soon in difficulty with NOLA's habit of subtle seafood overwhelmed by seasoned sauces. Bayona was a haven of classy dishes, subtle flavourings and a really imaginative menu. The restaurant was deservedly full but the service was excellent and the staff very polite, attentive and well-informed. Somewhat expensive but highly recommended for a special meal. Our best...

This was our first visit to NOLA, and for days we walked by Bayona on our way to some touristy things and kept telling ourselves we must eat out on their romantic courtyard before we leave. We booked a reservation on open table for our last night in NOLA....and it was so cold there was no way to eat outside.... More

Over priced and overrated!!! Do not order the T Bone steak, tiff and dry even ordered med! The blacken shrimp appetizer a real let down, 6 tiny shrimp with little flavor, and don't expect to see your server after you place your order, she never bothered to come back and was everything ok, I had to get the bus person...

This restaurant is the epitome of class and the service was outstanding. The menu was perfect - you order three things from any place in the ever changing menu. Get three "entrees" or desserts if you like! It makes it a more fun concept. We all ordered different things and each person loved what they had. The garlic soup, the... 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.
