    I've only been to the Front St location twice and both times the service and food were outstanding. We brought our own cake for a birthday our last visit. Not only was it allowed but it was also cut and served to us as well. Very impressive customer service! We already all know the ribs are superb!

    It was not that busy but because they decide to have a team approach to service delivery...it took us two hours to get our meal completed and it required a phone call from our seats to get anyone's attention. Both servers thought the other one was handling things and ultimately neither service us until we again asked where things were...food was fantastic once we got it...manager covered meal but it should not have happen in the first place...we didn't go for a free meal...we expected better service.

Service was amazing we were on a tight schedule and i did not want to order something else. We were in Monday March the 5th.

    There are a few Baton Rouge locations in downtown Toronto but we chose the one at 277 Front Street as its not as busy as the other locations. The food was great had the ribs. We always enjoy the food here and the selection. Make sure you check that they have let opentable know that you did honour your reservation as they did not for us and this is the 2nd time a restaurant has done this . We received an email from Opentable upon our return home saying that we were a no show so I had to email back and advise we did indeed go. The two front girls did look frazzled that Friday night so I guess misakes can be made . It was looked after by Opentable.Great place!

  • Attentiveness versus Annoyance?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/17/2011
    Portions are hugh, especially the abundant fries served with things like chicken fingers, etc.. Servers need to be more observant of patrons in terms of checking if the food is "to the liking" - for example, don't ask a minute after the food is placed on the table when it is clear that no one has even tasted a morsel! Sometimes too much enthusiasm can be annoying especially if it seems to be "cumbersome" and intrusive to conversation at the table.

    Baton Rouge front street was a great experience. Not only is it located in the perfect spot in town, but the employees and the food make it even better. From my finace and I entered we felt right at home. I can't stop talking about the service we got there. We had no long waits, and someone was always there to answer any questions we had. The food was great, and the I was really pleased with the portion sizes. I had the Santa Fe chicken, and I really recommend it. Overall it was time and money well spent.

    We were satisfied with the whole experience, however, we were not impressed by it. We requested a reservation for 5pm, which we were not given. We did not realize that the reservation was not accepted for 5pm until we received a confirmation e-mail from Open Table stating our reservation was for 3pm. No explanation was provided until we arrived at the restaurant, and we were told that they had blacked out the time. The food was ok. Nothing really wrong with anything that we ordered, but we have had much better quality prime rib for comparable price. We had never dined a Baton Rouge before and this experience has not enticed us to go again. We were also not impressed with the reservation process due to the blackout time not disclosed.

    Food was good but the service, not so great. Took over a half hour for our server to come by and take our drink order. Then had to struggle to flag someone down every time we needed something after that. You would think that for a party of 15 you would get a little more attention. The food was good, though, and came out quickly.

    It’s Monday and sure enough only a few tables in the restaurant. The waiter service is very polite and smile always on his face. We order the famous Baton Rouge burger. The side dish of Cinnamon Apple is very good. Of course the burger is so good that it is even better than HeroBurger. The disappointment comes the last part of the meal on the dessert. We order the Apple Crumble with the ice cream. It doesn’t look like what we have thought. It has a very thin layer of crumbled apple pie with a few pieces of apples sliced on the dish and vanilla ice cream on the top. It used to be a roasted crust with apple inside that is so delicious. It’s definitely is one big disappointment.

    This was not a great dinning experience. We had 3 different waiters at any given time coming around trying to do the same thing. The food was mediocre and I would probably not go back, definitely not worth the price they charge. The ribs were tasty but nothing to write home about, the seared ahi tuna was bland and definitely did not look like sushi grade tuna.

    Lunch for 2. The food portions are rather large, but I found that to be a compromise on quality. My steak was ordered medium well, but it was dry and almost charred. Service lacks attention to detail, i.e. a refill of water was requested (not offered) but it took a while to arrive. Then it wasn't served to both, just one glass was filled and the waiter left the table.
