    My NOLA favorite! The service is spectacular, food and drinks are phenomenal. Do reserve early. Vegetarians and vegans, a scrumptious meal will be prepared off-menu -- ask your waiter.

    Best Duck I have ever had. Duck slices combined with a crepe filled with Duck Confit was spectacular. Had the Carrot Cake Dessert. Perfect ending. Just happened by and thought it looked interesting.

    The peanut butter duck sandwich was out of this world, and even the story behind on how it was created is even mind blowing

    Food delicious, cocktails great, and amazing atmosphere. Sat outside in the garden at the rear but the restaurant inside looks lovely too.

    Quail salad app, duck and the rabbit mains are amazing. Crowd is older, country club feel and service is slow but the food is worth it.

    This restaurant blends Mediterranean, Creole, Southern, and New American cuisines into one scrumptious style of cooking. Most of the ingredients (produce AND seafood) are local and seasonal.

    I took the advice from the tips on here and ordered the sweetbreads plate for the first time in my life. Do it. Order the sweetbreads. You won't regret it.

    Everything. But my chair bounced up and down every time a waiter walked by. They need to redo the floor.

    Don't be afraid of Bayona if you're a vegetarian. There are several items on the menu that are easily made "safe." Or you can let the chef come up with something special.

    Duck was insane! Reservations before 8 have a better shot of not having things sold out. Didn't get to try a lot of what I wanted due to reservation at 9

    Wasn't bad. But was expensive, slow, heavy, non veg-friendly esp at the price point. May be better for lunch.
