    The hostess placed our large party at a convenient location. Our waiter was very attentive to us the entire time, from appetizers straight through to dessert. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed our time there. Other patrons were sharing well wished for our birthday celebration as well. It was just a really great evening all around.

    Had a very nice lunch. Staff was courteous and efficient. Delicious food. The Outdoor seating area isn't really outdoors, we were expecting an open patio/courtyard, it is more like a covered porch. Inside was much nicer.

    The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we sat outside and it was lovely, the decor and the ambience fit perfectly to the New Orleans theme. The food was delicious and we even had enough for leftovers to take home. It was expensive but we went all out as a treat for date night and it was wonderful. Dinner, drinks and dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    My friends and I went to Bayou for Mardi Gras and it was such a fun experience! Everyone was dressed for the occasion and they had a live band playing music. I will definitely be there again next year. The food and service was great as always.

    We are 26 miles from this restaurant but we will definitely go back with our friends. We were seated according to our request, thank you. Sebastian, our wait staff was efficient and very pleasant. The buratta appetizer was delicious. We had Jambalaya and stuffed chicken breast. Both were very good.

    The food was good but the service was poor. The waiter spilled gravy all over my sweater and phone when taking away my appetizer. He just threw my fork in the plate with Gravy so naturally it splashed everywhere. The table was wobbly which the waiter made sturdy upon my request. And then the server picked up my dinner plate when I wasn’t even done eating it. She didn’t even ask. She just grabbed the plate and left.
