    The food was excellent as always! It was a very busy night and we had a new waitress. Two of us had our drink order taken and served before the other two at the table were addressed. It took an unusually long time to receive cocktails and be asked to order our meal. Ordering appetizers and dinner was very disorganized throughout the evening. Dessert orders took a long time to be taken and received. Obtaining the check at the end on the meal was another frustrating experience. The food is wonderful, but if the service doesn't keep up with the quality of the cuisine then it seems the establishment may suffer the consequences.

    The food was excellent, the ambiance was great but, I had some problems with the service. We ordered an appetizer to share and when the waiter brought it to us he did not bring little plates to share the appetizer, we had to use the bread plates. I used a fork and the knife to eat the appetizer and the waiter failed to bring another knife for the entree, I had to ask for it. Finally, I believe that $11 for a "house" Pinot Grigio is too much, this is the first restaurant where I pay that much for the house wine, and I usually eat at good restaurants. If you have dinner but avoid getting wine and beer ($7), the restaurant prices are similar to other restaurants in the same category.

    This is the second time I have eaten here and both times the restaurant was basically empty. The soft shell crab was excellent, but the potatoes underneath were extremely salty to the point of almost uneatable. The wilted fresh spinach on top was goof, but I didn't get the point of putting micro greens on top of spinach. Aside from the food not being great (because the price sure is), there were more employes than patrons. Thinking this was because of an LSU home game (it was an away game), I found out it was not when I walked outside. Across the street is another restaurant and they're parking lot was full. I'm thinking that this restaurant is not being managed properly for evening service. That is based squarely on what I see and taste.

    The food was fantastic. I really enjoyed the new menu. I loved the potato gallette with the soft shell crab. The chef even made a dinner size portion of the shrimp creole for my husband off menu. It was amazing. We had the watermelon lemon drop drink special and it was amazing as well. Our waiter Grant was kind and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him as a waiter.

    Upper line casual but not overly dressed dressy during brunch hours at least. Service is outstanding. Recommendation by server sops the food itself! Loved my experience here. They even brought out what appeared to be an icebox cake covered in chocolate for my birthday! Would go again - brunch prices were excellent as well as quality of service.

    Great place to meet and dine with old friends. The piano was a nice touch and the layout of the dining areas made you feel quite private. We all ordered seafood and everyone was delighted. Our waiter was attentive, accommodating and helpful. The whole flounder was beautiful. I had the grilled pompano and it was delicious. Loved the sautéed fresh vegetables.

    My husband and I enjoyed a special evening, beginning with the greeter coming outside to welcome us and holding the door open for us. The hostess checked our Open Table reservation and seated us immediately at our booth. We were immediately greeted and served water, while our waiter introduced himself and offered something from the drink menu. We noticed the manager visiting with a table of guests and soon came over to greet us as well. Our waiter came back with our drinks, offered the specials of the evening and gave us recommendations from the menu. The food was excellent, service impeccable and coffee was delicious. I would definitely recommend Le Creole for anyone looking for a lovely evening and fabulous food.

    I tried the new menu and the shrimp creole was out of this world. The lunch prices have gone up quite a bit but portions haven't. I think that is the only negative. I had a new waiter and he was not as good as my usuals. Also, I didn't see the manager interacting with the customers as in previous visits.

    We tried Le Creole during Baton Rouge restaurant week and were highly satisfied. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and kept the meal moving nicely without making us ever feel rushed. Four our appetizers we had the apple-wood smoked tomato soup and the handmade meat pies and both were very good. We both ordered a steak and mashed potatoes for dinner and both were cooked to specification. Once again this was an apple-wood smoked item and the smoke flavor was at times overwhelming but that is more a personal taste and wasn't a food preparation issue. We ordered the bread pudding and flour less brownie sundae for dessert and both were good but nothing spectacular.

    We ate in the bar area as we find it much quieter. We have been to Le Creole many times. We went for restaurant week and selected from the special menu. The selections were varied and delicious. The drinks were just right, the appetizers/entries and desserts were delicious and the service was very good. It is my understanding they will be revising their menu which we are excited to see and will returning to see what changes they will be adding. Not to insult those families with children but we do not go to dinner to be around tables with noisy children. We want to have a quiet environment in which we can enjoy our meal and have a nice conversation. We were definitely able to have both.

    The only things that I ordered that was good was the appetizer and the dessert. My steak was a terrible cut of meat very stringy and touch. I found it very disappointing that our server Tyrone found it necessary at the end of the meal to tell us that gratuity is 20% and that he did not add that on to the bill. This offended me, as I always leave 20% gratuity for dinner and did not need to be told what to leave.

    Went to Le Creole for a celebratory dinner for several family members who had recent major career promotions. We were joyfully greeted immediately as we came in and were seated within a minute or two of our arrival. Michael, our server, did a great job, as he had been called in from a sister restaurant and admittedly not totally familiar with the menu/food, chefs and service computer, but he worked his tail off! The food was excellent, and I was able to find something to stay within my dietary needs. I would come back again, for sure. Would l love to try the brunch!

We were especially happy to see that Tommy Mansour is now employed there...he is definitely an asset to any business! Our meal was superb and we were surprised by a delicious complimentary dessert for our special day. The entire evening was delightful and we will certainly return, as well as recommend it to others.
