Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • " My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Le Creole. Everyone, from the hostess to the waiter to the bus boys, made us feel special. 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."

  • "Went here for my husbands 25th birthday for brunch and it was an awesome experience! Service was wonderful, our server greeted my husband and shook his hand to wish him happy birthday. They brought out an awesome piece of cake with a candle. We had bottomless mimosas, the crap cake appetizer, the filet and eggs, and the chicken and waffles! Everything was great! Can't wait to come back!"

  • "It has been a very long time since I went to a restaurant and gotten the quality food and service as at Le Creole. There are many dishes that you won't find elsewhere in the area, and the service leaves you wanting for nothing. Highly recommended."

  • "Overall disappointing. Went there for Father's Day. It was very crowded. Waiter kept saying the kitchen was backed up. The steak was not cooked properly and had to be sent back."

  • "I took my husband to Le Creole for Father's Day. We had a delightful time.....the food was very good, the noise level was good and the piano was a nice touch but I must say that the service made our day. Our waiter was attentive and professional without being overbearing and had a charming personality. We will certainly ask for him for future visits. We always enjoy Le Creole's menu and chef. Everyone there is doing a great job."

  • "I love this restaurant. The food is interesting and always delicious. The waitstaff is attentive without being overbearing. The piano is the perfect touch. There's also plenty of dishes that would be great to order at the bar with drinks...particularly the lobster wontons and both flatbreads."

  • "I was not happy with the new server and he didn't know much about menu or kitchen. New servers should be trained better. Also the restaurant had no ranch dressing. Very strange. Otherwise good experience."

  • "Le Creole's is a gem of a place that was perfect for a business lunch. The service was outstanding, and the food was incredible. We never felt rushed, but we were always attended to. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want great Louisiana cuisine and service. It certainly is the tops in both."

  • "My husband and I finally decided to treat ourselves to a dinner out on Friday evening at LeCreole for the first time. We were not aware of the level of fine dining that LeCreole presents so we were a bit under-dressed, but the door was opened for us by the manager with a warm greeting. The staff all exhibited the same warm and friendly (and professional) attitude that we received by the manager. All of the staff's attire was impeccable & very professional, as well as the restaurant. Live music was playing in the other room but was not overpowering our experience so we could still talk. Then the food arrived. I definitely want to go back to get the flat bread again, and my husband loved the turtle soup. Our main entrees were amazing! Go!"

  • "The food continues to impress. Lobster won tons and fried green tomatoes were a great start. Special for the night was seafood stuffed speckle trout. Excellent flavor, moist, and a large filet. Finished off with bananas foster. Overall an excellent dinner. Service was first class. Everyone was friendly. Worth the extra money."

  • "My wife and I found the service to be beyond expectations and food right there with the best. My wife had the pecan crusted redfish and I had the cedar plank gulf fish. I think hers was a bit better, but mine was tasty and different. We highly recommend."

  • "Dined early on Tuesday evening to celebrate anniversary. Restaurant nearly empty, with only a couple other tables occupied. Obviously new waiter (poorly trained) awkwardly stumbled through nightly specials. Fish of day (Mahi) not suited well for pecan crusted preparation. Soft shell crab special was good and attractively presented, but turned out to be one very small crab on a large bed of potatoes = overpriced for content. Wait staff milled around a lot in open view of guests. "

  • "Today it was rainy and cheery, but that all changed when I entered Le Creole. They treated me kindly from the time I walked in. The server, who knows my name, ordered my drink for me and brought it right away. I ordered the amazing 9.99 lunch special which came with salad. They were the beef sliders. I would highly recommend them. This a place beyond others for customer service."

  • " The food tasted very good, and the service was very good. The waiter knew how the food was prepared, and what dishes were gluten-free. We sat as far away from the piano player as possible, which was just far enough to have a quiet conversation. But ... the ice cream for the Bananas Foster was served in a Styrofoam cup! And it was too soft. A restaurant that charges $25-35 for an entrée should NEVER serve anything in Styrofoam, especially a fancy dessert. And it was not plated by the server; I and my guest were provided with bread dishes and left to serve ourselves. It was difficult to eat the dessert, having to get it scooped up with a soup spoon without pushing it off the plate."

  • "We have dined at Le Creole many times in the past. The food is always good. The service is good as well. However, on this night- two things that we attempted to order from the menu were not available. One was a particular wine that was on the wine list. It seemed they were out of it. The second item was an entree item on the menu- we were told it was not offered any longer. The menu was being redone. The waiter should have been informed of these things and let us know ahead of time. In the end, our dinner was good and we were satisfied. We will return, just hope these things will get corrected. "
