This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. From the time I walked in, the atmosphere was amazing. The service was immaculate. Our server Ms. Katelyn was super nice, super helpful with the menu, and very friendly. Don’t get me started on the food, 1000 out of 10. I will definitely be back!!

About the restaurant
The only place to get true Creole food is in Louisiana, or at least in someone from Louisiana’s kitchen. Come reste un peu (stay awhile) to downtown Baton Rouge and visit Chef Mark Reilly's Creole kitchen.

Love the decor. We dined in the Library Room. Perfect atmosphere. Quieter and more intimate than other parts of the restaurant. The food and cocktails were marvelous and the service was perfect. Will definitely return.
