Pork Shank was out of this
Pork Shank was out of this world. Meat was so tender it fell off the bone. My wifes steak was cooked a perfect midrare-med. Had scallops for our appetizer they also were very good. Service was always there never needed anything. Dining out downtown was very a very enjoyable walking thru park and 3rd street afterwards.

Stroubes is a great place
Stroubes is a great place for a romantic meal or even
A girls night out meal. The ambiance is wonderful. It's not stuffy so you can wear jeans, but it's upscale at the same time so you can dress up!

Best items that we ate: Crabmeat
Best items that we ate: Crabmeat salad & Softshell crab special
Least favorite: Veal Sweetbreads - they were fried and ended up tasting like chicken nuggets. They should cook them the way they did at Clancy's, where they are outstanding.
The place is relatively small but has a very nice atmosphere with good service.

Best in town.
Beautiful steaks and fresh seafood cooked perfectly. Stroubes has never let us down and we always leave saying; "Boy, that was delicious!"

Stuffed Duck Breast
Had the off the menu feature which was a stuffed duck breast served over a crawfish rice. Out of this world. Wife's steak was cooked a perfect med-rare. Service was good.

Anniversary Dinner Delight
A wee bit on he pricy side, but food is excellent. Had crab, corn and brie bisque, tomato & moz salad, Stroube Roll appetizer. Louisiana Catch of the Day and Duck entrees. All very tasty. Amaretto Crème Brulee for dessert to top off the evening.
Definitely a recommend.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM

Ribs to die for
First time to Baton Rouge and wanted some place near the river. Good reviews in Trip Adviser were warranted as we found the food and service excellent. The raspberry coated ribs are to die for. They fall off the bone to melt in your mouth. Service was excellent with the staff being ready at just that point where you would want them. Spacing between appetizers, salad and meal was spot on. Great time.

Unique combinaton of local
Unique combinaton of local ingredients and presentation of same made for an outstanding meal. Service was top notch. For example, we mistakenly thought the bread pudding had white chocolate topping when we ordered. When it came with milk chocolate, Matt M told us that he would replace it. We didn't feel that he should since it was our misunderstanding. He then said that he would be delighted to bring us some white chocolate to add to the dish which he did. Nice customer service. Will recommend to others.

Food & service were terrific. Blue cheese & bacon grits were superb. Both risottos were excellent. They do every menu selection very well, & they are very attentive. Only drawback is a very limited wine selection.

The food was excellent. We would highly recommend giving Stroube's a try.

Pricey, but good
I enjoyed the charbroiled oysters, but I have had better. My Duck la Louisiane was tasty if a bit under-cooked. My wife's Mahi Mahi was delicious. We also had the creamed spinach, which was unnecessary as the entrees were enough to eat by themselves. My wife loved the apricot creme broulee, and I enjoyed the warm brownie a la mode. We had a nice anniversary dinner, loved the walk up next to the Old State Capitol. A slight turn-off was the smell just outside the door. They were doing construction, and there were some dumpsters nearby that I assume were the culprits.
Thank you, Stroube's!
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
food great...service was rude
I had a young waiter who when my friend asked for a straw he looked at her like she asked for a million dollars and preceded to respond, "I'll see if I can find one". It's a restaurant not a deserted island this should be easy to find. Secondly, when he asked if anyone wanted to order an appetizer, I ordered a salad. He preceded to tell me that it wasn't an appetizer and would I like to order in the soup/salad course. I then explained that is what I want as my appetizer. Throughout the service we had to ask for refills and were spoken to as we were lower class. I was then upset to find gratuity was already included because his service definitely didn't deserve it. On a better note, the food was outstanding!

Felt like I was in New York!
Great spot. Was in Baton Rouge for a night and had heard good things, so I tried it out. Courteous staff. Very friendly. They went out of their way to make sure my special requests were met and also ensured that I had the privacy that I required to enjoy my evening.

Great cocktail list our duck entree was a great taste of good Louisiana cooking

Very good food and service.
Very good food and service. Noticed that the menu had changed since last we dined there. The shrimp remoulade is different from any one I have ever had. Instead of a mayo based dressing it seemed to be a tomato based dressing. Very good. My son ate the duck served over sweet potato mash and collared greens. I don't know what did to the collar greens but again they were great. Couldn't believe my 11 year son ate them.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Me and my fiancé love to try a new different restaurant once a week. We pass by Stroubes almost daily and have wanted to try it for a while. We enjoyed every second we where there! Service was amazing, food was flavorful and perfect, and waitstaff is attentive and knowledgable. Can't wait to go again!!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just not for me...
To celebrate my wife's birthday we decided to splurge and have a fancy expensive meal at Stroube's. Neither of us had ever been before. We knew going in it was going to be very expensive. I saw in the news that their head chef had left just recently so perhaps our experience was affected by this.
We had wine which was great. We got the char-grilled oysters. They were not nearly as good as Acme Oyster house or Dragos in New Orleans. If I ever go back to Stroubes I would not get these again.
Next we had the "fresh catch" which was Red Snapper and the Steak Frites. Both were very good and well portioned. Presentation was nice as well.
We did not like the Creme Brulee and bread pudding. At $180 after tip I doubt we will go back.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to Stroubes after a not so good experience, this time I would recommend it. Amanda was phenomenal. Just as last time the food was wonderful. I will be back!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
great for date night
I've never been to Stroube's and had a negative experience. And this time was no different. I was torn between 3 entrees, so I asked our waiter what he would choose. He recommended the mahi. I am so glad I chose it :) I also tried a frog leg that the other couple had ordered as an appetizer...wow! Love it!! We had the Stroube Roll appetizer and it was phenomenal.
IF I had to say anything negative, it's that they didn't serve my Hess cabernet anymore ... but I got over it!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
great dining experience
excellent meal. My husband loved the frog legs appetizer, collard green dish was fantastic! Great service, very friendly, helpful waiter, very nice ambience. Will definitely visit again!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stroube's is a little inconsistent
Stroube's is downtown and we live in Spanish Town so it is a very convenient restaurant for us. We went Monday night to celebrate my birthday there and were a little bit disappointed in the food. The frog legs on the Prix Fixe menu were outstanding, but I had the shrimp remoulade appetizer and it was just okay. For the entree my husband had the scallops and I had the seafood pasta. Again, my husband's entree far outshined mine. For dessert he had the creme brulee and I had the peach cobbler. He lucked out again-- as the creme brulee was outstanding and my dessert was very dinky- small with one piece of peach-- the rest was crust with ice cream. That said, we will go back but possibly not for a special occasion.

great meal loved the scallop
great meal loved the scallop special with pork belly. Will be back!

First time dining at Stroubes
Although my girlfriend's filet mignon was slightly over done, they were happy to prepare another one for her which turned out just right. Other than that, the meal, the experience - it was all great!

Great Food. The duck braised
Great Food. The duck braised ribs were different but very good and tender. My wife's filet was excellent. It was chargrilled on a grill and not broiled which gave it a great flavor. Nice wine list and beer selection. We will be back.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always exceptional and unique with special local cajun touches thrown in.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone at our table ordered
Everyone at our table ordered the lunch special of Fried Chicken with Sweet Potato Waffle. It came with a side house salad that was very good. The fried chicken was nice and crispy but was way too "herbal" for all of us.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first visit to this restaurant
Our first visit to this restaurant we were very impressed. Nice atmosphere,very attentive waiter ( but not overly so ) and excellent food well prepared
We will defintely be back !
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Haven't been there in a few years and wanted to try the "taste of the house". I was blown away (and I'm not one of those people who say that about everything). My wife and I both did the 8-10 "small plates" sampler that is only available on Thursdays - not only were we full as a tick after all the food, we couldn't find a single dish that we would change. Everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. Based on our past experience, we were expecting it to be good, but not this! In addition, the wine parings were perfect - we got a explanation and paring rundown from the sommelier for each wine/food course. Perfectly orchestrated from start to finish. Very impressed and highly recommended! Chef was also very friendly!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the food at Stroubes!
Stroubes is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at when I am in the downtown baton rouge area. Food and service is excellent! I recommend the getting the stroubes roll for an appetizer for sure. The seafood dishes are also excellent.

Stroube's Scores Again
Once again Stroube's scores a win in our book. We tried the Duck and Andouille Eggrolls this time and they were fantastic.

Excellent Service. Great Food.
First and foremost hats off to our excellent waiter Benjamin. The gentleman was very knowledgeable of the menu and the daily specials. I was dining with an out of towner so Benjamin did an awesome job of explaining the great local brews. We ordered from the specials and from the menu... food was great. The charbroiled oysters were savory and served with a nicely seasoned warm bread. The escargot was good. I enjoyed their variation that is more savory then the traditional dish. The porkchop was delicious and prepared well. The peppered tuna was seared perfectly rare however I thought it was peppered too much and took away from the high quality tuna. I will recommend this place and eat their again.

We went as a family to celebrate
We went as a family to celebrate my son's 21st birthday and everything was excellent from our table, to our server, to the food. We had our 9 year old son with us as well and they made a special accomodation for him off the menu, chicken fingers and fries, which was greatly appreciated :) We will definitely return to Stroube's
9/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
As always Stroube's does not disappoint. From the unusual cocktails and complimentary appetizers throughout the meal, food and service was excellent. One of favorite restaurants.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM

Very nice all around. Waitress very professional and attentive. Really nice dinner!!!! Will definitely dine here again.

Outstanding tasting menu
Made it 11 courses but there was more to come! You can stop when you are full! I tried lots of new dishes! They were awesome! Will come back! Amanda is a great server!!!
9/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Have been to Stroubes several times and always had a good experience. Service is always very good. Food doesn't disappoint but some dishes are definitely done better than others. Great cocktail list but would prefer more wines by the glass. Perfect spot for a meal before heading off to an event downtown.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot on 3rd street downtown after enjoying Live after 5. The food and service and atmosphere were great.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM

Pork porterhouse was amazing. We will be back!

Birthday at Stroubes
Stroubes was a really nice restaurant with an extremely convenient location. We took the latest reservation possible and the ambience was quiet and romantic. My partner and I both ordered the filet, medium well. My steak was somewhat overcooked but I assume because we were the last party seated that the cook staff was ready to go home. As an appetizer we dined on fried calamari, duck soup, braised pork belly and I enjoyed a wedge salad. All were delicious but the calamari was the best I have ever tasted. Overall I would rate Stroubes an 8 of 10. We will most likely return when in the area.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dining and atmosphere!! A Baton Rouge Favorite!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, good atmosphere
We eat at Stroubes almost every time we go to a Broadway show at the River Center. We usually make a reservation. The food is always great. And the service is very good. You can hold a conversation with the people at your table because there isn't much noise. We really enjoy our time there.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Dinner for Two
Started with the fried grren tomatoes and grilled oysters. Finished with blackened drum and a filet. Both meals were cooked to perfection and the drum recipe is top notch. We love the atmosphere and the service. The staff has always been attentive and timely which brings us back time after time.
