Our server and assistant staff were great.
Always Great food and atmosphere, Servers are always top notch!
We thoroughly enjoyed out meal! The food was delicious and our server was awesome. Your restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat.
As usual our food was excellent! Our server Trey was exceptional. He made good wine suggestion & checked on us not not so much as to be intrusive. The only reason noise level was hi is a table if 6 next to us was LOUD. So loud in fact I couldn’t have a conversation with person next to me w/o cupping my ear. They were so inconsiderate. We always ask for a table against wall to Prevent this but this time to no avail. Not anything y’all could do
There were six in our party and everyone expressed how wonderful their dish was.
No two of us ordered the same entree so we had a good cross section of the dishes.
My Martini was one of the best I have ever enjoyed and the charbroiled oysters were grand.
However the best part of the evening was our server, Megan, who made sure every course was to our liking. She was always attentive but never overbearing. She was one of the best servers I have ever encountered. She needs to be considered for a management position.
A totally GRAND evening.
Everything was superb. If I could make one suggestion I would seat 2 tops and 4 tops away from the larger groups as this would help to mitigate the noise level for those hoping for a more low key setting. We look forward to dining there again.
We were delighted with this casual fine dining spot. Extremely well run establishment. I am not used to dining room televisions in a place of this caliber, but it added to the casual atmosphere. Otherwise, fine decor and even better food. A bargain. And a McClaren 720 in the lot to ogle on the way out.
Cindy and her staff were absolutely first class.
Food was excellent! The restaurant was very nice. I will definitely make plans to go again!
Our server was very attentive throughout the entire evening, which was Valentine’s Day. FMB was very busy, as to be expected, but everything was brought out in a timely manner. Food was amazing. We did not feel rushed and got to enjoy our evening together. We will definitely be back!
My girls and I were celebrating their father’s birthday, he just past away this past July 2019. Bitter sweet, however Our dinner was perfect! It was a very special night and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Susan’s service skills are delightful and genuine! Thank you!
Excellent food and excellent service. Perfect date night restaurant. My wife and I can’t wait to go back to try more on their menu.
My husband and I went for lunch on my birthday. I’ve dined there with a group of friends on several occasions, and we’ve always been seated in a back room with a lot of windows; a very nice setting.
For this lunch, we were seated by the bar, near the front door, no ambiance at all...feels like a tight spot where you squeeze people in when you’re really busy...except it was 1:30 on a rainy Saturday, and they weren’t busy at all.
Then we were given menus, and kind of forgotten about, until we finally stopped someone and asked if we could order.
I normally never complain, but being that this was a place I’ve always had a good experience, it was my husband’s first visit, and it was my birthday, I was expecting it to be better.
Love the food here, and the service is always great with Amanda!!
Incredible dining experience. Food and drinks were out of this world.
Good food, good service, good for business lunch. I could actually hear what people at my table were saying. The only negative was very little available parking at lunch on Friday.
French Market Bistro is our favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge. The food is amazing and the staff are always friendly and helpful. You will never be disappointed coming here. Their filet's are the best ever.
Made reservations and reservations were recognized. Hostess escorted us to our table and we sat a few minutes before even menus were given and drink order taken. Noticed other tables were served bread and we were never served any? Waiter returned shortly with drinks and served our meals.
We enjoyed our recent visit to celebrate my husband's retirement. The atmosphere and food were very good. When we first sat down the music was somewhat loud and more suited to a bar party, but was soon lowered and music more attuned to fine dining played. We would recommend to friends.
Always a great experience. Not too noisy, good service and great food.
Dinner with friends on a Saturday night. Our group ordered specials and from the regular menu. Everything was delicious. Highly recommend.
This is probably my favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge. Great wine selection and ambience. Food is wonderful and they are flexible to customize if you need something different than what is on the menu. Service was also very good. I recommend getting reservations as they get booked up quickly.
Normally good but knew we were in for a bad meal when we ended up in front room with chipped paint everywhere. Problems started with drinks that are now in smaller glasses and not remotely filled up. More on that later. Changed one item on pasta dish - use olive oil instead of butter and ended up with dry pasta dish with few items listed on menu. At end of meal we had to be embarrassed by manager proving that 2 different glasses hold same amount of liquid when that wasn’t the point= fill up high priced drink. Also ran out of fish special by 7:30. Sorry for bad review.
Excellent Food. Excellent Service. Great value. Parking at peak times is sometimes a concern.
A great restaurant. The food was excellent with wonderful specials offered. Service was perfect.
Nice place to go with friends. Food good. My fish special was the best I’ve ever had there!
Great food but below average service
We had an amazing NYE dinner. All the employees were friendly and willing to please
Great menu, hard to choose what to order! Great ambiance, perfect for a date night.
Always a great meal and great time!
Booked on openTable a week ahead of our dinner. We arrived on time and were seated at a wrap around bench seat in bar area afer getting settled someone came and said sorry this is for another reservation and asked us to move to the table next to it which was a high top table for 2. We moved and waitress came and took our drink order after getting our drinks she dissapears for aperiod of time as we finished our first drinks before she came back. Once she came back she took our drink order and food order.
We orderded the char grilled oysters with the upcharge of the bacon and jalepeno. We got the oysters and at them and didnt realize they had crabmeat not what we ordered but they were so good we did not care. We told her about the mistake and she said she would take off the bill. We got the rest of our meal which was amazing. I give the food a 5 star. Not sure if we were supposed to get bread as we saw some tables with bread. I think opentable gets bad tables as mine was a hightop next to the bar where all the waiters cam to pick up their drinks so that was my negative along with my bill minus the upcharge but she added the crabmeat that we did not order. lesson learn read your receipt.
Excellent food and service
Food is always perfect. Love the buzzy atmosphere, feels festive. The service is top rate. It’s in my top 5 faves in Baton Rouge.
wonderful experience....would definitely recommend
One of the best thanksgiving dinners I’ve ever had. They did a remarkable meal and dining experience
The staff was eager to meet our needs. The food was excellent and service was friendly.
French Market Bistro is a great place to eat in Baton Rogue. We ordered the char grilled oysters and fried asparagus as apps, they were both awesome. Three of my foursome ordered the Filet Mignon steaks and I had the scallops and all 4 orders were done very well. Great food and service.
This is one of our favorite spots to eat. Unfortunately the Open Table app only reserved us a table in the bar .., not the quiet evening we had hoped for .. but still great food and service
