Disappointment???. Hmmm, I was also in the place on 1/15/03. Loved it. Esp. when a boor at the next table loudly announced to the sommelier he did not order French wines "for political reasons". This in a FRENCH restaurant. Impressively, the s did not hit him over the head with any available bottle. Sweetbread appetizer alone would have done it. The lamb loin was perfect, the staff friendly (I wonder who was at that next table?). All this in an elegant small room. Woof.
What a disappointment!!!. Don't bother going to this overrated restaurant. Although the food is above average it is far from spectacular. Service was the worst I've encountered. Even when brought to management and the chef's attention, no effort was made to apologize or rectify the situation. Their arrogance was disappointing. There are too many wonderful restaurants in New Orleans to bother with Bayona.
Vastly Over-Rated!. Was this place a disappointment! I had heard great things and saved it for last in my recent week-long gourmet odyssey in New Orleans. The place was beautifully decorated, offering friendly service and knowledgable about food and wine. What came out of the kitchen was sub-standard for the image and reputation that this place aspires to...Signature dishes such as shrimp with black bean cake were overcooked and puny. The garlic soup had the texture of wallpaper paste, possibly the flavor too...My rabbit entree was fatty, chewy and devoid of any flavor whatsoever. When waiter came by for perfunctory "how's everything"...I told him. No effort was made to rectify the dissatisfying experience. We were a party of 5 having wine, appetizers and entrees, this was a $500.00 dinner! Bad form for an elegant and expensive restaurant in any city. Don't make it easier for this place to fleece tourists, dine elsewhere.
