Blue Bayou

Blue Bayou is one of the three table service restaurants in Disneyland (if you ignore the private Club 33). A major draw of the Blue Bayou is its great atmosphere; the illusion of a starry night on the bayou as boats from the Pirates of the Caribbean float by set a romantic, tranquil mood.

A priority seating reservation is recommended, though you can just show up and hope for a slot to open. When you arrive at the restaurant, ask for a seat next to the water. If it is available, you will get a great view of the boats and bayou scene.

Reviewer: B Downey 2 Tacoma, WA     July 15, 2011
One of my all time favorite places to eat. Started out with a busy day at the park, but luckily we had made reservations for dinner. (Our daughter's 18th birthday dinner) Very short wait and were seated quite promtly. Excellent service as always. The three of us all had the fillet, which was deliciously tender. Excellent taste. We were also delightfully surprised by the side of "cajun" scalloped potatos. Really great taste, not too spicy. To top it off, my daughter got a nice little rendition of Happy Birthday sung to her. (Which was unpromted, she happened to be wearing her birthday pin from City Hall) Will continue to eat here each time we visit.

Reviewer: comanchepilot Southern Cal resident     June 17, 2010
Ok, I think I was served my worst meal ever at this restaurant. While theme park food can leave a lot to be desired, and I've eaten here before, this one was horrible. $22 for a Monte Cristo sandwich which consisted of TWO pieces of meat that were not more than 2" by 3" and ONE thin piece of swiss cheese in a 5" high piece of fried dough. There was nothing 'sandwich' about this item - it was a slab of fried dough, no bread, and virtually no filling for the 'sandwich,' served with potatoes that are nasty and 'mixed vegetables' that consisted two oily and undercooked stalks of broccoli, I think it was broccoli. Truly disgusting.

Then there was the service: yes, we had a trainee. I would love it if restaurants would ASK me if I wanted a trainee before sitting me in their sections. It took this guy 15 min to take our drink order, then another 15 to bring the drinks and we got our soup before our drinks and we needed to constantly grab the guy to get refills. When the bill came, it was wrong. So it took another 10 min to get a corrected bill - all told NINETY minutes to eat a truly crummy and highly overpriced meal. I don't have high standards at a theme park; but this one on this day managed to under perform even my low standards. A diabetic would not be able to eat here at all.

I then complained - and got brushed off. The 'customer service lead' essentially told me that I was wrong about the sandwich. I saw one go by and stopped the server and pointed it out to the woman - who shrugged. They can fill the place every day, with people who will never come back - what do they care.

Reviewer: norcalmom Pleasanton, California     March 02, 2010
This was my very first time eating at the Blue Bayou. My daughter and I were in Disneyland by ourselves so I thought it would be a great time to try it. I made a reservation two weeks in advance for 6:30pm. We checked in with the hostess at 6:05 and requested a table by the water. We were told it would be a 45 minute wait, but we were seated by the water at 6:25!
I had the salad and Cajun-Spice Salmon and my daughter had the gumbo and short ribs. The food was fabulous! Unfortunately, we were too stuffed to order dessert...maybe next time! Our waiter was friendly and very attentive. It was pricey, but definitely worth the experience. Dinner for two, plus tip was $78. I would recommend the Blue Bayou.
