When we visited yesterday, my husband ordered the gator burger and I ordered the skirt steak panini. We also ordered the jambalaya rice balls and everything was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. This is one of our favorite places to visit.

Feels like I was back on Bourbon street. With its soft lighting and New Orleans motif Bayou makes you feel like you are in the big easy. The list of magnificent appetizers is endless: wonderful flavors, nice size portions and reasonable prices make this a great place to come with family or friends for a fantastic night out. Seafood salad... More

Been coming here for the last few years. My last visit was this last Friday. Bayou NEVER disappoints. The food the drinks the staff are all top rate. Definitely try the Shrimp Remoulade and the Alligator bites. Red beans and rice as well as the chicken gumbo are good too. You could pick any entree and you won't be disappointed.... More

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
