This is going to be my go-to for good food at reasonable prices. The waitress convinced us to evacuate the day before Ida hit so she has my vote! The Bayou fish is my dish and they don't skimp!!

Great food!!!!! Friendly staff. I'm in St. Louis still thinking about the delicious food. Praying for New Orleans and the great people I met at Bayou Bistro.

Bayou Bistro is absolutely wonderful. The food is made with love. We were so impressed with the staff. Our waiter was so helpful and we even met the owner and chef. Check them out!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Sitting on a bench outside of this restaurant after a 20 min walk in the heat and a gentleman came out of the restaurant and said we should come inside to cool off and get a bite to eat while we were there. New Orleans hospitality at it's best! He turned the fan towards us and got us drinks right away. We ordered the Oyster Po' Boy a ... read more

This place is ABSOLUTELY a must visit when in New Orleans. Melissa, our waitress was so sweet and the service overall was the best we’ve experienced in the city so far. And the food…. I don’t have the words… JUST GO TRY IT! Really authentic and soulful stuff, great small business that deserves your money!

Walked over after drinking on the bayou a bit, the waiter (Will i think was his name) was awesome. it was kinda late and we were the only ones in, he brought out extra bisques and jambalaya for us to try. I got the catfish po'boy and it was really good, it wasn't a massive portion or anything but it was fried well and so far is the b ... read more

Exceptional service, amazing food, and wonderful atmosphere. Everything is well seasoned, drinks are good and strong and music is soulful. I feel like I’m at my Grandparents house, it’s that comfortable. I don’t highly recommend a lot of places but THIS IS IT!! Ask for Angela!

It's a hidden family owned and operated gem located next to a landmark cafe. Food was excellent!
Stacy Easy via - Mar 27, 2021
Baaaaby everything was SO good. We started out at the restaurant next door but the wait was ridiculous so we headed to Bayou Bistro. The service, food and drinks was awesome. I'm a local with friends visiting from Atlanta and this WAS THE BEST PLACE for them to try authentic NOLA food and service.
Tanya Ralph via - Mar 20, 2021
Service was a little slow, but very cordial and friendly. The food made up for it as well. Could utilize seating a little better due to covid, rather than seating next to each other when all other tables are empty.
Andy McHale via - Mar 12, 2021
Phenomenal food, staff and Chef! Will definitely return often.

Great place we found by accident. Delicious food and great staff. Crawfish etouffee was wonderful...yum. yum.

Went one night to have drinks and a more intimate atmosphere. Music was classic 90's R&B. The bartender was great and very engaging. The lady at the door was so sweet. One place I'll revisit. Felt local not tourist like.

Dealing with Covid but still worth going. Support those that are struggling to stay open
We had a party of three on Thanksgiving week for lunch. This was our first time there and pretty much selected Bayou Bistro by other reviews on-line. Our primary goal was to avoid the quarter as much as possible. We were not disappointed. I must...start with that the restaurant is trying to deal with Covid as much as everyone el ... read more

My friend and I were in town and just happened upon this little jewel of a restaurant. The people who worked there were absolutely amazing. Super sweet. Didn’t miss a beat serving you.
