Never been disappointed in Bayona's! Excellent food and service. The dinning rooms are very quaint. Bon appetit!
Susan Spicer has made this one of the best places to eat in New Orleans. And on your list for the US.
This is just one of those places you have to go to when you are in New Orleans. The overall experience is 5 star for a reason.
We have found the food, the service and the experience to be worth the trouble to go to this restaurant. Bayona is in the French Quarter just one street away from the river. If you are going for lunch or the night will be nice, the patio is wonderful. If the day is humid or if you want weather protection go inside.
If you have a chance try the Saturday Lunch. This is a simple one page menu with 12 or so savory dishes and 6 sweet dishes. You pick any three you want. All servings are about right in size but if you want you can order another item for a small additional charge. Look over the wine list carefully, ask your table host if you have questions about the wines. You will want to find a wine that will fit you and guests food selections. Now enjoy the wind and food.
Bayona is not cheap, the Saturday lunch is in the $25 per person range and the wine list is in $30 and up range. But we think you get good value for your dollar. We have also found this to be true at dinner.
Put Bayona on your Restaurant list. If you are a cookbook person, have Susan sign a copy of her's for you.
This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
From the bread to the dessert...everything was delicious.
I had the Goat Cheese Crouton with Mushrooms in Madeira Cream followed by the foie gras stuffed goose.
Every bite was like a party in my mouth.
The service wasn't great...but not terrible either.
I was dining alone and the waiter seemed much more
concerned about his other tables of two or more.
Regardless, I would definitely recommend Bayona.
Romantic and quaint. Perfect for a date or special occasion.
