We have been going to Bayona since it opened and are never disappointed. It is one of our favorite places for excellent food with a New Orleans flavor.
Recommended to us by locals so our expectations were high. Unfortunately, Bayona did not deliver. The wait staff was silly, nonattentive, pretentious and not as knowledgable as they tried to appear. Food was average particularly if you are accustomed to dining in the Pacific NW or NYC regions.
Beautiful restaurant with a nice courtyard and atmosphere. Meal was very overpriced, as were bottles of wine, but food and service was very good. Fish was fresh and well prepared. I would go again.
Six months ago, this was our favorite restaurant in New Orleans, hands down. Next time we are in the city, we'll try something else. Don't get me wrong, the food was great, just not on the "excellent" level we have come to expect. The staff is fantastic; they are very helpful, attentive, and just plain friendly. My wife is not...

We had a nice meal here, eating in the courtyard, which is beautiful. The food and service were good. It's a little pricey (not unusual for New Orleans), but nice. If the weather is good, the courtyard is a great place to eat.
My wife and I went to New Orleans last week for a little shopping on Royal Street and want to try a new restaurant (new to us) in the Quarter. We choose Susan Spicer's Bayona.

The "original" section of the menu still has the amazing sweetbreads and my favorite quail and pear salad. The daily menu offered shortribs with a honey demi-glace and a... More
Referred by a friend, the experience was disappointing from being moved from our table (once seated) due to a "reservation mixup", through a wobbly table which was never fixed (think spilled wine), and on to lackluster food. Not what one expects at the price. Sorry.
We went to Bayona for a Saturday lunch. We ordered the three course lunch. The three course lunch costs $25 per person. Our first course was a Greek salad and garlic soup. The Greek salad had feta cheese, yellow and red peppers, purple onions, olives, tomatoes, and arugula (I think). The salad was very good, not over sauced, just perfect.... More
Five of us dined at Bayona last week during our vacation in New Orleans. It was wonderful and well worth the money. We chose Bayona because of Susan Spicer's reputation and it did not disappoint. To start with the two women serving team were spot on. Every dish was explained to us in great detail and their station was full.... More
