The entire experience was world class. The service was impeccable and the food was simply amazing. Bas Rouge rivals any of the fine dining restaurants we have frequented in any major city. It’s a must.

A planned elegant start to the holiday weekend and we were not disappointed. As always, we were greeted warmly, shown to a beautiful table, served with friendly efficiency, enjoyed superb cuisine and wine, and once again said to each other “why don’t we do this more often?”

Excellent food and service - a bit pricey and not large portions but great for a special occasion (or everyday if you don't balk at a wine list with a median price north of $400/btl)

I was disappointed by the entré, rack of lamb. There were only two chops, on a bed of succotash that looked like it came from a can, all of which was only slightly warm. One would think that for a prix fixe of $85 per person, there might have been more than three courses, and at least three lamb chops. The service and ambiance are superb.

We had a lovely dinner this Saturday evening. The food was impeccable and the service was first class. The ambiance was great, the decor was beautiful, and the service was professional and friendly. Our dishes were presented hot and the attention to detail was stunning. The food was so fresh and perfectly seasoned and prepared. From the asparagus soup amuse bouche, the delectable veal ravioli with poached egg yolk and white foam, to the buttery miso sole, to the almond nut cake- it was the best of the best at each course. The wine selection was impressive, and the complimentary warm cake bites at the end of our meal, and a piece of olive oil cake to take home, made the entire experience five star ⭐️! We will be back for another wonderful meal.

Absolutely outstanding evening. Finally a great restaurant on the eastern shore!,. Stay at the inn at Perry Cabin but eat here for high end New York Quality dining at very reasonable prices. Service perfect. Ambience lovely. They even prepared a vegan meal for one of us (needed advance notice). I can easily see this becoming a destination restaurant to build a weekend around for DC Baltimore Philadelphia foodies

The ambiance and service were excellent during our recent dinner. Very cozy and quiet for a special occasion. The food was very good, however in comparing the food and prices to other French restaurants in the DC metro area that we have enjoyed often, it wouldn't be my first choice. Bas Rouge adds positively to a good variety of restaurant offerings in Easton, though. Creative offerings for entrees and artistic presentation but portions could be a little more generous. We were offered bread by service only once at the beginning of the meal. We may visit again.

What a gem! Outstanding service and ambiance. The food has to be good too, and it is. Sauces are flavorful without being too heavy or rich. Seasonings were spot on, enough to accent the meal but not too much. It's at the upper end of what I want to pay but well worth it!

Could not have been better. Portions were right size when having to order 3 courses wonderfully prepared. Was second visit. The first experience a year ago was not as good and was reluctant to go back given price point but so glad I have them a second chance. Would definitely go back as their menu is seasonal so want to try spring.

I stumbled upon this gem when searching for restaurants near St. Michael's. My boyfriend and I spent Presidents Day weekend there and were first-time visitors. We came to this restaurant Friday evening - a bit of an uber drive from St. Michael's but well worth it! From the moment we walked in, we knew we were in for a treat. Spectacular service from entrance to exit.

We were brought a lovely veal sausage amuse bouche. I started with the veal ravioli which I am still dreaming about. Hands down one of the best things I have ever eaten. My boyfriend had the grilled lobster tail to start which was also heavenly. My main course was rack of lamb with a delicious succotash. My boyfriend had the miso black cod which he compared to some of the best he's had in Japan. The desserts were also lovely, but the starter and entree courses were fabulous.

A phenomenal wine list, we had a difficult time choosing but eventually went with a lovely Pinot Noir to complement both of our mains.

After leaving, we were presented with a freshly-baked olive oil cake which I snacked on with coffee at our hotel the next morning.

We talked about this restaurant all weekend and I will be sure to return on our next visit to St. Michaels!

If you're in the area for anything, don't miss it!

Finally a restaurant in Easton that replaces the Bartlett Pear Inn. One of 3 restaurants on the Eastern Shore that are MOST go to. Das Rouge, 208 Talbot, and Heirloom. The top wine list outside of Charleston's in Baltimore. Must try the sweetbreads, 200 year sour dough bread starter. Service was simply stellar.

We were looking for a spot to celebrate an anniversary with fine dining. Food was excellent, I had duck and my wife the lamb. Portions are very small comparable to restaurants in large cities somewhat out of place here in the more casual Eastern Shore. Portion size undermined its overall value. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Three course dinner with champagne and wine was $160 per person.

The overall experience was impeccable. The oyster stew was the best we've ever eaten and coming from New England we've had our fair share. Two minor critiques. The aperitif Lillet was ample, but next time with a twist of orange and not a whole fruit slice, it's not an Old Fashioned. Also, the meal could be served hotter, it was a bit tepid, but incredibly delicious. No complaints, just some tweaking, we absolutely loved it and will definitely return. Nice to have something so well done in all areas from the room aesthetics through the meal.

Fabulous wine list, expert sommelier assistance. Our champagne and Vosne Romanee were both memorable. The Burgundy wine glass alone was worth the vist. Wine service impeccable.

Bone to pick: "Rack of Lamb" is false advertising. Two of the tiniest lamb chops I've ever seen arrived, more like an appetizer. No salad options. Dessert and the wine were stars of the show.

Bas Rouge has earned "my favorite restaurant " status from my husband and me. If you haven't gone, do so!! Prepare to experience fine dining done right. Kudos to Chef Harley Peet for his Austrian inspired cuisine. We chose the three course prix fixe dinner which was more than enough to eat, especially when adding a couple of special amuse bouche treats, including caviar on a buttermilk blini. We are so pleased this special restaurant has come to town! Go ahead-treat yourself. You deserve it!
