Fusion / Eclectic
Inspired by old-world cuisine which emphasized a handcrafted approach, City Pork Brasserie & Bar produces scratch-made goods in small batches ensuring proper care and attention to detail. All of our house meats are either slow-roasted, braised or smoked imparting unique and bold flavors to our sandwiches. We also combine this approach to our starters, salads and plates which feature local fare from rabbit, duck, to fresh fish. We have an interactive open kitchen as well as a unique charcuterie & cheese bar where guests can dine. Our goal is simply to provide customers with great-tasting, made-from-scratch food from a creative, evolving and seasonal-driven menu.

Always enjoy City Pork! Drinks are great and the food is also. We had a variety of things - the pork flautas and the crawfish dip were a great way to start with a bacon old fadhioned.

1st time at the restaurant. We ordered from the brunch menu. Ordered the smoked salmon appetizer and it was the best. We ordered the Pork Benedict and I had the Poblano both with poached eggs. The eggs were overcooked and hard. Because of this both dishes were very dry. Also sugar in the pork I think, which I do not like. I would go back again and order something different. Overall we enjoyed it.

The service was and food were wonderful! It was a very enjoyable night with friends. I loved that they split the salads in the back for us and the portions were very generous! The food was great as always! The young lady who served us was very personable and helpful. We will be back!

Went here for lunch for a work colleague. Ordered the Seafood Goddess salad and it was really good. I appreciate that the salad was dressed perfectly without it getting too soggy, the shrimp were well seasoned and the crab was excellent. I usually keep lunch light and simple and this fit the bill perfectly.

The food and service at City Pork never disappoints! I love the menu selections and severs give great recommendations. Also, they have one of the best outdoor spaces in Baton Rouge. If weather permits, sit outside! Hands down this is one of my most favorite spots for date night!

Everything was amazing. Was super skeptical about the Bacon Old Fashioned but boy was it tasty! And the food? Wow! Best club sandwich I’ve had in a while! 5/5 stars no doubt!

Our server was responsible for all but one table outside so was very busy. He managed to provide good (and friendly) service despite the circumstances.

The menus were dirty and we were seated near chair storage and a trash can when at least one other more desirable table was left empty. This is the reason for my 3 star value and ambiance ratings. For the prices, which are fair for the dishes, I just would have expected an elevated ambiance and menu experience (clean menu/no chairs/trashcans/unused patio heater near tables.

I would still go back-but Id ask for another table.

I’d get the pork steamed buns, the boudin balls and the bread pudding again for sure!

Varied menu with some interesting choices. Waiter was very enthusiastic and helpful. He suggested the Creole Shrimp Omelette with side of veggies to order something with my health in mind. It was very delicious and healthier than my usual brunch!

The service was fine and the restaurant was lovely, but I was expecting so much more than a dry, over charred pork chop and a dry cubano from a place that touts their pork. The charcuterie board was excellent, however. Each item truly blew me away. Our waiter didn’t seem to take my partner and I seriously since we appear quite young, which was frustrating. The table next to us was extremely inebriated and being very loud, to the point where as we were leaving, one of them went to our table picked up my unfinished drink and began drinking from it.

Made reservations for Mother’s Day 10 days in advance. When we arrive they seat us outside uncovered near parking lot and claim they told us about seating over the phone (have voicemail proving they didn’t). We waited for service 15 minutes and we were not waited on. Informed manager and left

Food was fantastic but it took the kitchen FOREVER to get our food out to us. We were there for over an hour before our food arrived. And then they only brought out half of the orders. The other half in our group had to wait another 10 minutes, and they all just had pulled pork sandwiches. So unfortunately, the wait soured our entire experience.

We held a family reunion here after getting a lot of recommendations. The place was packed. My meal was good, but not great. The service was super slow- we had to repeatedly ask where our drinks were, etc. That said, I may return but my expectations will be more reasonable.

We had a late lunch scheduled for Easter Sunday. We sat outside on the patio and it was just gorgeous. The service was wonderful and the collection of appetizers we had as well as our main entrées were delicious. I would certainly recommend.

always satisfies. usually we limit orders to pork (that bein in the name and all) but on this trip we ordered seared seafood and shrimp/crab Caesar and both were amazing - also had the octopus appetizer - which wasn't Greece but - was quite good. Still, had to order the ribs with peaches dish for take home, can't seem to go a month without our "fix" and the order is well large enough for two!

City Pork hits a good sweet spot for Baton Rouge. While it’s not really fine dining, it’s nicer than most casual restaurants with many menu options other than just BBQ.
