Beautiful meal at Bas Rouge. Great service and food that looked so pretty and tasted fantastic. One of the prettiest dining rooms I’ve seen. We will be back!

Easton
About the restaurant
The Stewart is an intimate bar-and-lounge in the heart of Easton, MD, with an unparalleled focus on the very finest of single malt Scotch whiskeys and vintage Champagnes. Upon entrance, guests are transported to a sphere of sheer refinement and spirit sophistication where one of the most impressive assemblages of Scotch in America is gloriously ensconced in the eloquent Federal Street enclave. An elegant evening progresses in an atmosphere of updated and distinguished Highland splendor: gleaming dark woods, handsomely refurbished period seating, gilt-framed oil paintings of Highland scenes, an intricately pargeted plaster ceiling, and, naturally, tartans galore. A crackling fire in the cooler months provides cozy ambient undertones within an 18th century walnut and brass trumeau chimney.

Food we got was good, although the menu isn’t terribly large and is somewhat all over the place in its offerings. The drink menu was extremely rum/sugar heavy. The ambience was somewhat like a restaurant you’d expect to be in Disney World — heavily themed with occasional light/sound effects throughout the restaurant. Probably a great experience for kids.

Easton
About the restaurant
The Wardroom is situated on a prominent corner in historic downtown Easton, Maryland, in what was formerly The Brick Hotel — considered a marvel of its time in the mid-19th century. The gastronomic, European-style shop and bistro offers handmade pastas, house-cured meats, and artisanal chocolates from top French chocolatier, La Maison du Chocolat. Both a pasta and wine bar, the Wardroom’s menu consists of authentic Italian pasta dishes, cheese and charcuterie plates customized for each guest, and seasonal salads and antipasto dishes. The basement houses an extensive wine cellar and intimate tasting room called The Locker, as well as a temperature-controlled cheese “cave,” and a kitchen where chefs produce fresh pasta each day.

Lovely venue with pleasant and attentive staff. Limited menu options and more fish/seafood was fine for us but would be limiting for our friends with seafood allergies. The fresh produce was great and well prepared. The beef was a bit tough, tasty but not worth the high price point. Appetizers were delicious. We were too stuffed to have dessert.

Everything was great . The food the service, my only complaint persay was we were charged $2.50 pp for me bringing in a cake I made titled as cake cutting service I think . Granted they presented it with plates and forks but I cut it and served it. Not sure of the reason for this fee as well had a large party, bought their dessert to . Regardless it was very good. I just would not take my own dessert again .
