    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.

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!

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.

    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!
