Baton Rouge- North York reviews from OpenTable diners
  • good pre-theatre dinner

    Dined on 6/19/2013
    Went to the Baton Rouge near the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts for a pre-theatre dinner. Great menu, with lots of lobster specials and fixed price options. Food and service were very good, with the exception of the tuna salad -- tuna was over-cooked.

    I've dined at Baton Rouge's across the city and they are a;; great. Baton Rouge is known for its ribs, while those are amazing the french fries are also exceptional. The servers are great and the furniture in the restaurant is truly well chosen.

    Luckily dad enjoyed his ribs. They were good. The pork and beans and coleslaw sides were also good. I made the mistake of ordering steak ... I requested the Filet, Pittsburgh-style. It arrived at the table not charred as promoted but slightly seared, and the centre was medium rare, not rare. Our server was nice, but did a poor job checking in on us and refreshing our water. Not having been to a Baton-Rouge location in a while, I forgot how few actual LA and Cajun food options (or even sides or steak toppings) there are available.

    Wonderful Mother's Day for my mom! Best Restaurant ribs we've ever eaten and the Italian salad dressing is THE best I've EVER had. Dipping bread into that stuff is like transporting yourself to ancient Rome. Asked for the recipe and naturally was turned down with a shy giggle from the waitress. Highly recommend this place!

    Couldn't check off much of the above because I'm usually focused on one thing when I go to Baton Rouge - North York ... their ribs! Order the baby back ribs 10oz or 16oz with their always delicious and overflowing sides, and dive into your ribs that literally fall off the bone with the touch of your fork. Just amazing. Who cares whether it has a notable wine list or is romantic, etc. It's good for RIBS! Nuff said. P.S. the ambience is good too. :)

    Had a 3-course meal (salad or soup, entree - ribs for me!, and dessert) for $25. It must have been some sort of weekday special (?). Good value for the $25. Nothing spectacular but a decent meal. The sweet potato fries were the highlight.

    They could work on the presentation of their food. My son had a sirlon steak with sweet potatoe fries - two thirds of the plate was cover in the fries - half on them were left uneaten. He order his steak meduim rare and received rare. I had the Tuna Steak with garlic mashed potatoes.. Half the plate was the potatoes, the tuna was smoother in a ginger sauce which was the same colour as the potatoes - it did not look very appetitizing. Too many potatoes, too much sauce, no colour on the plate. I was only able to eat half. Friendly attentative staff. Locatin to the Theatre was great.

    I had the Salmon with steamed veggies. But I got mostly broccoli with only a few pieces of carrots & cauliflower. Would have been nice to have more variety. I don't really like broccoli. My other dining companions had burgers/sandwiches & liked their meals.

    Have been to this location before and have been very satisfied. This time, my experience was very poor. My fiancée and I ordered drinks. I asked for a Heineken, my fiancée asked for a glass of water. Soon after she changed her mind, and asked for a Rickards white... The Rickards never showed up... at all. We asked twice! For our meals, she chose the Fillet Mignon (ordered medium) with Seasonal Veggies, and I had the New York Striploin (ordered medium-rare) with garlic mash. Both steaks were completely undercooked.. mine was less than rare (how is that possible?) and hers came rare. My fiancée did not receive veggies as ordered. Both were meals were sent back. When they returned, my potatoes were cold, albeit, our steaks were better.
