Great place for dinner. Service was slow but it was because they were booked solid on a Monday night which is always a good sign. This is my wife's favorite place whenever we come to New Orleans. You have to get the goat cheese/ crouton/ mushroom appetizer. Amazing. The garlic soup and quail salad were great also.

This is an enchanting dining experience. Soft lights, linens, well spoken professional servers who know their food and wine pairings and space for your companions to feel comfortable in. Ex-underground slave quarters with a gorgeous outdoor patio setting. All behind it's own borders on the Quarter and you go back 150 years and you're there! Food mirrors the setting. You'll... More

Food was delicious, atmosphere was quaint. Great place for a great meal. I had the pork chops and my wife had the hangar steak....both were fabulous. Perfectly cooked and taste was bountiful. Great wine selection as well.

At our recent visit, we enjoyed a lovely meal. We had the scallops as an appetizer, the Bayona salad, and the Arctic Char. All were incredible. The atmosphere at this restaurant is truly lovely.

We were in NOLA for Jazz Fest and ate at Bayona on a Saturday night on the patio. We had good service and great food, they also have an extensive wine list. Prices are reasonable and compare well with other fine dining places in New Orleans. Appetizers, soups and salads were all good as were the entrees. Friend liked the... More

The interior is as I remember from 1997. A few of the selections are the same..garlic soup was fair..not warm enough for me and lacked flavor. Portions are small but cooked very well..dessert to die for ice cream with a toffee crumble (I think)..it was excellent. The restaurant was busy but not "crazy busy" and our server was lost for...

We structured our Saturday around this innovative and reasonably priced lunch...three dishes for $28. You could be conventional and have a first course, entree and dessert...or eat three desserts if that suits you! We sat in the courtyard and it was delightful but there is plenty of air-conditioned space inside. Choices change weekly but the tiny fish tacos were light... More

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner at Cafe Bayona in early May. We started with the crawfish salad which was unique and delicious. I had the arctic char (cooked medium is perfect) and my husband had the lamb which he said was great. We finished with rum raisin ice cream. Yum!

We heard about the famous garlic soup and thought we would give it a try. Well, unless you're a snob or full of yourself, don't bother going. Nothing was very good. We waited over 15 minutes just to be noticed. I guess maybe we didn't have our suits/high heels on. Water and a guy blubbering about who knows what! We... More

This is a lovely restaurant and the food lived up to the very high expectations I had developed from hearing about its reputation. Sophisticated food and wonderful, friendly service. One of our party was a vegetarian and though there was no vegetarian choice for main course, the kitchen fashioned a great meal from side dishes. She was very happy. I... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood 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.
