Food and service were very good and staff courteous and helpful. We were seated in the bar area and found it noisy and difficult to have a conversation over the music and bar chatter. I had informed the desk person that it was my wife's birthday and was told that they would provide a surprise dessert, but I had to remind the waitress of that, otherwise it would not have happened. Lovely evening otherwise. We will gladly return for a casual meal.
Had a great birthday
We got there a little bit early than our reservation for 6:45 and they seat us immediately.
The food was great and as well as the service. The only thing is that we mentioned that we were celebrating two birthdays but they did not bring us a complimentary dessert.
Good food and service
An evening with friends—very enjoyable! Good food and pleasant atmosphere. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One of my favorite restaurants and I live in Santa Maria so supper close.
The food is always good and the wait staff has always been very attentive.
Overall very good, and we ordered their award winning soup of brie and crab bisque, but we felt it wasn't very hardy or robust as we expected, and it seemed to have a "vinegary" after taste to it; since we have not had it before, we aren't sure that this is what it's suppose to taste like, and if that being the case, we would not have called "award winning"!! All our other dishes were very good.
Always great, and service is excellent!
Consistent with great service & delicious food as usual!! The restaurant is comfortable and we enjoyed a great evening.
Excellent food as always. Great options favorites include eggplant with crab and the asparagus. Highly recommend.
Excellent overall today. Best pizza we have had there and our server was really nice - we have not had her before - everything was just right!
We started with the Char Grilled Oysters, which were really good!! We had the special fish of the evening, which was good and the Lamb Chops, which were a little overcooked and too garlicky. Finished dinner with Caramel Custard and Creme Brulee, which were delicious!
Great food and get servixe
Food is excellent. Service is inconsistent. The fresh fish option is always a good choice.
Wonderful!! Excellent service . Alex was a good waitress! Very friendly . Food was great ! Had a good time !
This was our third time at FMB and once again, it did not disappoint! Our waitress was even nice enough to provide reading glasses because we forgot ours. Overall it is a wonderful restaurant!
Excellent dinner. Chargrilled oysters were awesome. Sensation salad truly special, and great seared scallops.
Bread pudding was only so-so. We will definitely go back.
Excellent meal. CHARLES was an outstanding waiter. And we had a party of six and we were well taken care of, thank you!
French Market Bistro has never disappointed us. Reservations are necessary on weekends for sure!!
As always, French Market Bistro did not disappoint. The service is excellent and the food is always delicious with some wonderful specials offered. The staff is courteous and the management cares enough to stop by every table to make sure you are satisfied.
The food quality never changes!! They just seem to get better and better! The grilled oysters (charcoal grilled) are still my favorite but their fish dishes were fab too!! I had the potato and crawfish soup which was excellent t!!
Great wine list! Wonderful service!
Everything was delicious! We started with the Firecracker Shrimp and had the Salmon on cedar plank. It was all good!!!! This place is getting to be a habit!!
We went there with some friends to Celebrate a late Valentine's Day. I picked the restaurant because of the excellent food and choices available. I had a Gin Martini which was excellent and followed that with a glass of wine with my meal. I ordered a dozen raw oysters which were large , like I prefer, salty and very tasty. I followed that with the 1/2 duck which was one of the best duck dishes I have ever had. I get the duck at Mansur's ( a sister restaurant) regularly and this duck was a different presentation but just as good in it's own right.
Everyone at the table raved about the quality of their food and the excellent service.
Over all a GREAT restaurant.
I was very upset by the time it took to 45 min to order and 30 to get check. It took forever to find her and she was chatting with host. It was frustrating bc paying a sitter. Food was good but chimichurri was sweet with mint instead of savory like cilantro
We had a really fun evening at the Bistro starting with drinks at the bar, Eggrolls, Shrimp appetizer (very good), Halibut special and Cedar planked Salmon (very good). Ended with Caramel Custart (always good).
In love!!! Amazing food and wine and atmosphere! Will definitely be back
Special menu for Valentine's Day, but with lots of delicious choices. Special pink and red drinks and desserts. Service was great ( we always ask for Susan), and reservations well timed so not rushed but not kept waiting at our reservation time.
Didn’t meet expectations. The grilled oysters were very good and the cocktails were generously poured. Food was marginal, not fine dining quality.
The food and the service have always been good. I was disappointed that there were no flowers on the tables for Valentine's Day lunch. I was also disappointed in the iceberg lettuce wraps. I think a butter or romaine lettuce would be more friendly to the dish and better tasting to the person eating it.
We have been to this restaurant several times with great success. This time, however, we were seated in a new addition small dining room. It was very cold in there. Management was aware of this issue and had small heaters to place next to each table. I would have preferred another table in a different room.
Excellent food and service. Very reasonable prices. Quiet and intimate
Valintine dinner EXCELLENT!
Chargrilled Oysters were amazing! Lamb and fried seafood was okay and the scallops were good but kind of fishy. Great wine and amazing chocolate martini but nothing to write home about.
This place never disappoints. Everyone loved their entre as always.
French Market Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants in Baton Rouge! Great drinks and great food! Nice atmosphere. Fun times! Love the oysters. Awesome crab cakes. Marti
We love to eat at FMB. It’s an upscale casual neighborhood restaurant. The service is great. The staff is very friendly. Everyone knows your name. It’s recent renovations have made the dining experience even greater. Excellent wine list and the food is great too!
We went early to have a drink at the bar but it was packed, so we were seated at our table for our cocktails. We all shared the grilled oysters which were really good. I had the Red Fish on cedar plank, served with mashed potatoes and it was very light and mild. I can never pass up their Caramel Custard and it was delicious as usual. All in all, a really nice place for a good meal with friends.
Great lunch. This restaurant is one of our favorites. Susan is a great waitress!!
