Came for a dinner after a great concert and got an equally delicious dinner. Lamb chops and Gator bites were good but the mini tacos and rice balls were my favorites. The jubalya and pork chops were to die for.. Great place

Discovered that on Sunday this place has a brunch for $25. You get soup, cocktail, main dish, bread, dessert, and jazz music. In NYC you usually can't get a sandwich and coffee that cheap or that good. Place is a bit small but this is NYC. Since it is brunch the menu tends to breakfast foods -- heavy on eggs.... More

Took my son out his 39th birthday which is his favorite restaurant. It's great for unusual cuisine. I had alligator bites and they were great. Very romantic. Great wine and food

Creative decor with a New Orleans theme. Dinner was very delicious, lamb chops appetizer was perfectly cooked (medium). My Seafood Jambalaya was exceptional, Nicole (the waitress) was very pleasant and courteous. All around a pleasant experience.

If you have never been there it won't bother you but to those who have been there before in my opinion it used to be better. It is a busy place and reservations are necessary.

Had a great time at Bayou. It was during the week and in need of something different and relaxing. The menu was delicious itself and I wished I could have ordered almost everything and I can be a picky eater. The music just added to the atmosphere and the other patrons seemed to share the feeling. Can't wait to go... More
