This was my first time dining at Baton Rouge. The service , food and atmosphere were all amazing! The white chocolate raspberry cheesecake is a must! There was a live jazz quartet playing that was very good and the patrons seemed to really enjoy. Will definitely return. 😊

We had the most fabulous food experience when visiting in celebration of our wedding anniversary. Every member was beyond pleased with every morsel of their orders! Perfectly seasoned crab cakes with just the right amount of zing, beautifully done prime rib that melted in your mouth, ribs were fall off the bone deliciousness, seasonal veggies were the perfect texture, pasta so very flavorful! Dessert was decadent creme brulee and the BR cookie....AMAZING all the way! We cant wait to join you again!

Very busy in restaurant that evening. Servers seemed very frazzled and a little abrupt, forgetful. They must have been having a bad night. We usually have a nice meal here. We were honestly a little disappointed. We had family from BC visiting and we were embarrassed

Had to send my steak back twice because not cooked properly. It was not a good cut of meat. They did come good for it but my husband had to wait for my meal to come back and his got cold. Service was not great either, she seemed confussed

My girlfriend and I celebrated 2 years together. The dessert was on the house which was a pleasant surprise. Our server was quick & didn’t forget or make any mistakes. It was also her 2nd shift which adds to how great her service was.

Other employees were very helpful with the parking at Purdy’s Wharf & helping us choose where we sat (Booth or table), etc.

It was an amazing night and we will definitely be going back.

Although we had a reservation there was no tables/booths available in the restaurant, they tried to sit us in the bar but we were not interested in that, we ended up in what looks like overflow booths in the entrance hallway. No one else around, the food took a very long time to arrive and was not hot when it reached us. The fries were replaced but the initial serving should never have been served. They were very apologetic but that didn't make the food better, the manager was very good in trying to make it up to us, and absorbed the bill, but there were too many issues to make us go back or recommend it. Customer service after the screw ups do not make up for the lack of professionalism to avoid the errors.

Maybe. My kids didn't get the drink and dessert service until we finished the meals. Also I have left a note, when booking the table, this was our anniversary dinner but not treated as special. It was an average dinner out.

A decent meal at a reasonable price. Good service. The atmosphere feels a little dull. I would hire an interior designer to spruce the place up. Not bad interior but nothing special. A bit of flair will improve the experience.

Delicious ribs at a reasonable price. I chose the side of baked potato, which arrived just warm. Fries and coleslaw were included, but by choosing the baked potato, no coleslaw. I ordered coleslaw and it was $4.25, which seemed steep. As the restaurant got busier we didn’t see much of our server. Overall a delicious meal and enjoyable evening.

We took friends from out of town for supper and were very happy with our choice. The service was great- a bit slow on the non alcoholic drinks but our server was attentive and we didn't have to remind him. I asked for recommendation on the menu between two items and the server didn't miss a beat when he described them and told me which was more popular! I appreciate when servers know their menu and feedback on menu items!! Chicken breast was a little dry (but that's mostly a personal issue) but food was all very tasty and great portion sizes!! We will definitely be returning!!

Service was slow. My daughter’s steak was way over cooked and they messed up part of our order. Had had mediocre experience with Baton Rouge in Toronto, but decided to give them another chance at a different location. Won’t be back to any location ever. Too expensive for bad service and food screw ups.
