It was wonderful as always. I just wish they had more lunch options. It was a great Father's Day though. I enjoyed the drinks and the atmosphere. It is such a great restaurant.

Great food. Service was outstanding. Waitress Georgia was golden.
Had a drink at the bar before dinner. Bartenders Jessica and Jeff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

From wine to food to service, everything was first class. A hidden gem and not to be missed. Surprise your date and don’t miss the fried eggplant. It is light and heavenly.

Everything about this restaurant was wonderful. The bar selections with grand. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. Our waiter was a little off the mark. Instead of bringing us our cocktails, he took our cocktail order and then stood there and proceeded to tell us the nightly specials. We would have preferred to have had our cocktails sooner. Other than that the place was fabulous. I have been before and I will definitely go back again

Took the parents to dinner while they were in town (they are 82). We had the Brussels sprouts & deviled eggs for apps and they were as good as the first time we had them several months ago in the bar. Wine bottles were 2 for 1 and we took full advantage of it and killed 2 bottles between the 4 of us. The waitress was very attentive and answered all of questions without hesitation. Would highly recommend Beausoleil for a date night or entertaining guests.

We have visited this restaurant plenty of times before but tonight made us not want to go back. For the money that was spent ($200) our meal should have been memorable. The steak was not seasoned at all and the filet was tough and hard to cut. The ribeye with the butter sauce was overpowering and the steak was basically drenched in a soup which made it hard to enjoy. We got the tuna as an appetizer and again it was very bland. Should have been served with some sort of sauce drizzled on top. Unfortunately we probably will not be back.

I liked the place the waitress was great! The catfish I had was overall okay the gravy was a little thick my wife loved the duck! Felt like the wait staff was under dressed for a nice restaurant- wasn’t sure what the restaurant was going for though? Casual ? Upscale? Overall nice place though. Would and have recommended it.

Returned to restaurant after being ‘regulars’ for a few years. Food not as good as it was back in the day - overall good not great. Lots of open tables on Valentine’s Day. Restaurant is quiet (definite plus) and very accommodating ‘fine dining’ for newborn. I will definitely order the Brussels sprouts appetizer and bread pudding dessert. My husband and I weren’t too thrilled about our fish entrees. This is a good restaurant but not a must go.

The food was outstanding other than having to send back the tuna as it was overcooked. Although I'm not sure if the server asked how my friend wanted it cooked. The service started out great. Some of our friends were late and it seemed to decline at that point and also seemed our server got busy at this time. We had to ask for the status of our cocktails a few times and even some of our food items as they did not seem to ever be arriving to our table. It appeared our server maybe didn't put in all of our orders. We were also told one of our friends birthday dessert would be on the house however it was on our ticket. We asked for our ticket to be split 5 ways evenly as we thought this would be the easiest for the server. However the server did some other complicated split. The server also tried to pick up a few of our plates and drinks before we were finished. One drink also disappeared before it was finished. We didn't complain about any of this... however I received the email and thought management or the owners may want to know. Thank you

Food tasted reheated. One in our party bit down into a piece of plastic, which the waiter was very nice about but no manager ever came out to say anything. Even for restaurant week I found the portions unusually small, for example my steak was advertised to come with fingerling potatoes and it came with 1 chopped in 3 pieces.

We went for restaurant week and we were served a three-course dinner for a fixed price. $30. The appetizer was excellent although very small. For the main course we were served a small piece of fish with no bed of rice or anything under it , with three overcooked asparagus.The dessert consisted of a single marshmallow, a few graham cracker crumbs, and a drizzle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Won’t be back.

We may try it again, but this experience was a real letdown. It was restaurant week, so we ordered from the limited menu. The crawfish budin balls were almost all breading & rice. The duck appetizer was mostly bread pocket. My wife’s steak was horrible. It was overcooked. 1/2” thick and we even needed to ask for a second steak knife in order to try to cut it. My fish was okay. We both had the sweet potato desert which was okay, not great. The old fashioned was very good, but the special cherry was a letdown. The smoke and fire was interesting. The blueberry lemonade was not to my wife’s liking. The Paris drink (herb flavor) was good. It tasted like an after dinner digestive. The meal took entirely too long. I suppose the kitchen was backed up. The waitress did was doing what she could. Basically, have you ever been to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day and been served slop? Yep. That was about it.

To begin with, the hostess is right inside the door yet just watches people with those in wheelchairs struggle to open the door and help their disabled counterpart in. She literally stood there watching-she could have at the very least held the door. After being seated it took almost 15min for our server to appear. Due to it being restaurant week, our server took the order for all 3 courses at once (no problem at all). Our steaks came before our appetizers. We mentioned it to the runner who brought them out and he removed the plate after setting it down and took them to the back. Our appetizers came and were terrific. Next, our steaks were brought back out. Mine was room temp but my husband's was very cold since they had obviously just sat around after the mishap. Steak had a good flavor but more than half was fat. The sweet potato cheesecake was terrific. Once our waiter appeared, he was attentive the remaining part of the dinner.

There were 4 in our party and we all ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. Service was a little slow in the beginning but was more prompt once we placed our orders. Food was delicious (as always) and served piping hot. The duck empanadas are not to be missed.

It took over and hour for two salads, twenty minutes for an old fashion. My drink was empty for quite a while and only when they brought the salads was I offered another. The waiter had a large table next to us but I don’t understand why he couldn’t have just glanced over to see if we needed anything. The oyster salad I ordered had over cooked, hard oysters. This use to be a great place, either is was a very off night or it’s gone downhill.

Enjoyed the evening however our waitress was less than par. We understood it was very busy as it was New Years and we would have accepted some delays and rushing but the fact that she barely checked on us and didn’t even thank us at the end of the evening was not acceptable. Someone else delivered our check after we waited quite some time for her to return. Food was very good and we will try again but not with same waitress.

Very busy restaurant with attentive service and well done regional dishes and mainstream restaurant mainstays. However, given the quality of food that can be found in Baton Rouge and surrounds, this is not exceptional. Tables are very close to each other so can hear everything being discussed at next table.

We hit Beausoleil at a real peak time on a Saturday night before the holidays. At first they seemed to be a bit overwhelmed but as they caught up the food, service and drinks were all great.

Went for anniversary, atmosphere and wine selection was great. Small plate eggplant was exceptional as appetizer. Panko chicken wife ordered was impressive, she’s still raving over it today. I ordered the smoked duck and rice pilaf..... didn’t look anything like the pictures and was very bland. White rice and luke warm duck on a plate. I said nothing because wife was happy, but I was disappointed. Service was ok.
