We had a wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversary at Bas Rouge. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding, the wine list was quite extensive and we both left saying we would be back soon. A real treasure to have on the Eastern Shore.
Wonderful holiday lunch...beautiful room, such professional service...my son and I had the fab burger (favorite burger in the world) and husband had oysters on brioche which was amazing...and we had first courses, all excellent especially an enormous dish of mussels in a delicious sauce. Usually do the dinner but lunch is a fun change and, with a glass of Sancerre, perfect way to start the weekend.
Bas Rouge continues to be at the pinnacle of Easton fine dining. The Maitre D'/Sommelier and servers are the absolute best!
Amazing! Best lobster I’ve ever had! Entire experience was incredible!
The service was as good as it gets anywhere; the food was excellent
From start to finish, the entire experience was perfect. Well trained and attentive staff, clean, everything was top notch.
Great dining experience, lovely way to celebrate a special occasion!
My girlfriends and I enjoyed a memorable lunch at this "tiny jewel box" in Easton, MD. Tasty food, wonderful staff, beautiful decor made a this meal a special time for us. Can't wait to return and have already told many they must go!
This was our second visit to Bas Rouge. It was exceptional on all levels. The food was exquisite (we had tuna tartare, Dover sole and apple strudel) and the service was impeccable. It is a beautiful restaurant; intimate and small. Amazingly, in spite of its size and proximity of tables, it is possible to have a conversation without raising one’s voice. The people next to us did not become part of our conversation, nor were we in theirs.
The only negative I feel I must express is that the seating is not comfortable. The first time, I was seated in a chair, and the second time on the banquette. Neither is comfortable. I would suggest they add pillows to the banquette for back support and, perhaps, consider replacing the chairs. This may seem like a quibble, but when one is sitting for 2-1/2 hours, the comfort of the seat becomes an issue.
Bas Rouge never disappoints. It is my favorite restaurant in Talbot county. Always worth the drive. I highly recommend finishing your evening at The Stewart !
This is the best restaurant in Maryland. Period.
Bas Rouge is fabulous. The restaurant in intimate, the food, presentation and experience are wonderful. The staff is very good and make you feel comfortable. The wine list is world class. Very detailed website explains the menus and pricing.
Took my husband for his birthday and it was a wonderful choice! As we approached, the door swept open, we were greeted warmly and seated. Every table in the house is great. A glass of complimentary champagne was served and the wine by the glass we chose for our dinner was perfectly matched to our dishes. My husband had the tuna tartare with caviar and I had short rib ravioli as starters. My entrée was asparagus risotto with lobster and my husband had the crab cake which was beautifully presented. Both dishes were excellent. We were offered a choice of breads at the beginning of the evening and again during dinner - all of the breads were delicious. For desert, I had the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and my husband had the maple mousse - again, both were excellent! As we were enjoying an expresso, madeleines, warm from the oven, were presented in a small paper cone. They were so good we wanted to finish them but after two each, we just couldn't eat another bite. After the check was presented, a small bag was delivered to the table with two portions of complimentary cake for the birthday boy. Even without the extra treat of complimentary champagne and cake, the three course prix fixe dinner was fabulous and the extras put us over the moon!
As was indicated by my star ratings, this is a superb restaurant. It is beautiful, the food is extraordinary, and the service is gracious and attentive. My only criticism is about the music which I would prefer to be generationally neutral rather than music my late parents would have found pleasing.
Top food, wine, service and ambiance. Expensive, but unequaled without hours of driving.
Perfection, once again.... Thank you for creating such an elegant restaurant in Easton. Warm welcome, great service, fine dining, drinks served in the most magnificent stemware and just divine.....
Best meal and dining experience we have ever had on the eastern shore. Also better than any meal we have had in Annapolis.
Will become our special dining selection going forward. Sorry it took us so long to find it!!
wonderful food and wine, lovely intimate restaurant. Have already recommended it to several friends who love good food.
I really want to love this restaurant. The room is serene and beautiful. The food is high quality, delicious and well presented. The servers are all attractive and attentive. So what’s not to like? There is an air of pretension that just doesn’t fit downtown Easton. Feel like I should apologize for not ordering $100 bottle of wine (cheap end of the list). I’ll go back and enjoy it, but not often.
Lovely atmosphere, terrific staff and fabulous fiid
It was the meal that we have in our visit in the area. The food was very good, the servise wa nice and the restaurant is a nice place
Always our favorite spot! Everything is done so well.
This is the hidden jewel on the Eastern Shore. My wife and I would looking for something new to try in Easton and found this online. The menu looked very interesting so we decided to give it a try on her birthday. We were stunned by the quality and presentation of each of the dishes. Our daughter lives in NYC and we dine there often and this was every bit as good as any meal we have had there. Definitely worth the expense.
Fabulous dinner (again). This time we opted for the 3 course. I had the lobster cavatelli, rockfish and cheese course. My husband had the truffle pasta for his main. Any seafood dish here is exceptional every time, by the way. Pasta courses are always excellent in terms of inventive flavors. Portion size for pastas can be uneven - sometimes a lot sometimes a moderate amount. Always enough food I just never quite know what the pasta portion will be. Soups are always exceptional. Cheese course is a nice addition to the dessert options. Wine list is very well thought out. We've never had anything but great wine here. The staff is so well trained and delightful. (Also when the bread comes around, get one of those cheddar biscuits.) We've taken a few trips this summer and included some high end restaurants along the way and each time, we are sitting there saying to each other, well it's good but it's not Bas Rouge.
A little gem in downtown Easton. Food, service, ambiance--all uncommonly good.
This is a spectacular restaurant experience in the heart of Easton, MD. From the time you walk into the door until your coffee is poured, your are provided with a warm welcome, expert service, knowledgable staff, creative and delicious food all served in an intimate European styled dining room. We enjoy it for special occasions and getting together with friends who enjoy this type of elegant evening. It is worth the drive from wherever you live and worthy of the reputation that has been built over the past couple years. Treat your spouse and enjoy the magic of the evening.
We went to Bas Rouge to celebrate an anniversary. Everything about the evening, atmosphere, food and service, was perfect. The evening reminded me of fine dining in Europe.
Excellent dinner with friends as expected. Everything about Bas Rouge is planned and executed with precision and care. Truly an experience you shouldn't miss.
The restaurant was preparing for a very special Champagne dinner that night and the lunch menu was a bit limited. What we had was good, but not what we would have ordered given a normal lunch. Then service remains amazing. Thanks.
Am Ian even: It is a little stuffy.
Food is very good but menu is limited.
Desserts- How about a chocolate that is chocolate and not so busy with other stuff. Sometimes quality flavors are meant to be savored for what they are. Chocolate is one of them. ( I'm not a chocolate person!)
We have been to the restaurant many times and are never disappointed. The most elegant dining on the Eastern Shore.
We love this restaurant! The food, the presentation, the wine and the service, all top notch. You’ll feel like your dining at the Ritz in Paris.
The waitress served us complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent, the servings were nice sized and the service was impeccable.
Excellent meal and meticulous presentation and service. Every menu option was enticing. The freshly baked, still hot from the oven petite madeleines after our desserts was a lovely finishing touch.
Super restaurant typically found in NYC
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)
Totally awesome experience! It was our anniversary. We were greeted at the door by name with happy anniversary wishes and provided a complimentary champagne for toasting. All entrees were superb. Excellent staff and service.
