  • Lovely Birthday Dinner - we'll be back!

    My husband surprised me for my birthday. We were greeted kindly and seated right away. Our table was a nice table, fully set, and not in a big, loud area. The lighting was low and romantic and light jazz could be heard over the hustle and bustle of the restaurant. Our server was energetic and very knowledgeable of the wines and the menu. The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. Each course arrived perfectly timed, although the drink service was a bit slow throughout the evening with not a large crowd to contend with; it was odd for this type of place. The bottle of wine I ordered was absolute divine, and the foods were right out of a magazine! They were beautiful, artistic, and totally decadent! We had an amazing and relaxing time overall, and we'll definitely be bavk. It was absolutely worth the price and we'd recommend this lovely restaurant!

    We had just a great experience at 18 Steak. The service is impeccable. The decor and ambience are very comfortable and pleasing. However, above all, the food was just fantastic. We had seafood (at a steak restaurant) but everything was perfect. The best meal I ever had.

    Husband and I went here for our anniversary and it was PERFECT. The service was great and the food was amazing. One of those places where it is hard to decide on what to order. The pork belly appetizer, was great, they steak was great and the creamed spinach was some of the best I have ever had. I will definitely be going back!

    Went there for a birthday dinner. Got seated for 10 minutes before anyone showed up! Food was average at best - steaks were bland; tough rib eye and lacking flavor. Wine list limited. Expected more but happy we tried it. We'll go to another steak house in the future particularly given the price list.

    Our recent stay at the Lauberge and the dining experience were exceptional. The attention to detail, decor, ambiance and personal service far exceeded our expectations. Everyone we interfaced with were professional and you could see that they wanted your stay and dining experience to be a memorable one. It is not often that when the food arrives the wife takes out her cell phone and starts taking pictures to send to friends and family. Good show 18 Steak. Thank you for your efforts.

    Dined on 10/26/2014
    I've lived in Baton Rouge for 35 years and have dined in every worthy restaurant the city and surrounding areas have to offer. If you are looking for a dining experience second to none, you need to visit 18 Steak. You will have a meal that rivals the best restaurants in Louisiana, I had the filet with crabmeat topping. You’ll also enjoy an elegant dining environment, first class service and a relaxing view of the Mississippi river not found anywhere in Baton Rouge. Truly an evening to remember with that someone special or the family!

    Was skeptical at first because we had been when they first opened and everything went wrong that night. This time, pleasantly surprised. Everything was right! Food, ambiance, service! And love Open Table. When walked up to service desk, there was nothing available. When booked thru Open Table, got a table in 15 min!

    Very disappointed (again). Food is far too salty, almost unbearable. Steaks undercooked, then sent back - grilled more, yet overdone on the outside. Constantly had to keep asking for water. The wine list is overpriced for the quality. We've eaten there 4 or 5 times over the past 2 years hoping it will improve, but has not. We won't be back.

    My wife and I went to 18 Steak for our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The staff was top notch from the hostess to the waiter to the helper. Jake our waiter was very personable and knowledgeable. Igor his helper was right where he needed to be at the appropriate time. Meal was paced correctly every step of the way. Appetizer was very good as well as salad. The one very minor ding I would have was that my cowboy ribeye was a little tougher than I expected. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination just not what I expected. Overall our experience at 18 Steak was outstanding.

    The menu had been changed but was not updated on the actual menu. We came for the crab cakes, but the presentation and taste had all been changed. My wife ordered the scallops and they were extremely salty and I had the filet and I have to say, it was fantastic. For the price though, I would only recommend this place for a special occasion and not for casual dining.

    18 Steak is great for steaks as well as some good seafood choices. Oyster appetizers were great. Geremy always makes the evening extra special. Creme brulee with pressed coffee is a suitable finish to an enjoyable dining experience at 18 Steak.

    So far, three or four years into dining at 18 Steak, the food has always been excellent. The only mishap was one time the waiter misheard my wife and brought her filet well done, should have sent it back but did not. We enjoy the atmosphere, which is normally fairly quiet. The view of the river is outstanding. The staff has always been attentive without being overbearing, they are a pleasure and make a fine dining experience even better. You cannot beat the prix fixe and it is sufficient to fill most people to the point that dessert is out of the question. The entire menu is a delight and their steaks are as good as any you will have at Morton's or even Shula's in New Orleans before it closed.

    A Birthday celebration along with Ladies Night Out. We were seated by the window which was a little warm at first, but we asked that the shades be pulled down and then it was better. As soon as the sun went down it was much better and it was nice to see the water outside. Very pretty view. Waiter was very informative and helpful with decisions. Food very good..... a little pricey for the average working single lady.... but worth saving up for!

    The restaurant was extremely nice. It wasn't crowded because it was a Monday night. Trout Almandine was delicious but had to laugh out loud at the much anticipated duck fat fried potatoes - 3 slices off one end of a fingering potato. Maybe one ounce of them. Wife's Cowboy ribeye was perfectly rare and delicious. Daughter's duck was fantastic. All would order the same thing again. Service was very personable. The only negative was the vast time between ordering a glass of wine or a cocktail and getting it. 12-18 minutes. I understand that time is part of what you are buying at a nice restaurant but almost three hours for dinner had us ready to explode. If I go back, I'll ask the waiter to check on us more often with the drinks.

    Dined on 8/8/2014
    The poor service started when we were seated at the table. It took 15 minutes for someone to give us a menu and take our drink order. Once we got our drinks 15 minutes later our order was taken. It took 30 minutes to receive our salads. We spoke to the manager about this and after that point we did not see our waiter any longer. The mac & cheese was cold. We finally asked for the manager again because no one came back to see if we wanted another drink, dessert or anything else.

    It was a perfect evening to celebrate my mother's birthday with her family. The service was terrific and food was plentiful. There are many sides to select from the menu and choose the spinach, cheese/macaroni/ and Duck fries. The selection of steak was a hit at the table as well as the sea bass and chicken was enjoyed by all. The wines were enjoyed by all and best of all the price was reasonable for wonderful food, atmosphere, service and being with family.

    Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the cowboy ribeye, and I ordered the parmesan scallops. The steak was one of the best in the city, and the scallops were by far the best scallops I've ever had. The mushroom side dish was mindblowing good, and the cheesecake dessert was delicious as well. The service was top notch. Our waiter recommend almost everything we ordered, and he did not steer us wrong! Highly recommend this place. I was a little wary to go, since the reviews on OpenTable were so inconsistent, but we must have caught them on a good night, because everything was perfect.
