Notre the best service. We never got a second glass of water. Food was good, but way overpriced. Do not order the spinach dipp unless you are a party of twelve with no tastebuds.

I was very disappointed! Baton Rouge used to be one of my favourite restaurants. Sad to see that the quality of the food has gone way down! My Caesar salad was soggy, not crisp and fresh. The ribs had a funny taste, even their sauce was not the same. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria that had no flavour, was like watered down wine. And the price they charge is ridiculous! When I pay that kind of money, I expect good quality! The only thing I liked was the service, our waiter was extremely nice. Unfortunately I won’t be going back, what a shame!

Our server was efficient and knowledgeable, the service however, when the team concept was applied was not very good. Items were forgotten, served late, plates were given incorrectly, but I credit our server who was always playing catch up and trying to correct problems. The food really wasn't very good, the vegetables were under cooked, the rice over cooked, the fries were cold and I legitimately think that our filet mignons were sirloins. We had opera tickets so we ate and left but we were all (4 people) disappointed. I have been to Baton Rouge before and the food is usually much better. maybe it was just an off night. At least the Opera was really good afterwards.

Went to try the Burger Week burger but was told after arrival that it was only available at lunch. So whole point of trip was moot. Had regular meal which was good, but still disappointed.

All 4 of our dishes were delicious. My Louisiana chicken salad was great, my daughter had filet mignon which we all tried and loved. The others had ahi tuna which was perfectly prepared. The waiter was going as fast as he could but we had to wait a bit to be able to pay our bill. Overall, great experience!

The service was very slow and bad and the staff were co fused. It took 1o mins for a server to come then 15 mins to get our drinks. It was then 30 mins for the appetizer to show. But then the main course came out as we started the appetizer.

Perfect location for dinner prior to attending a Just for Laughs show. Food and drinks were a little more pricey than at other restaurants, but quite fair by Montreal standards. We ordered the ribs, and the club sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both meals were fine, but nothing exceptional. The staff were very friendly and professional.

We go to different Baton Rouge locations all the time. We chose this restaurant at Complexe because we had a show.
We ordered fried calamari for the entrees. The portions were half the size than what we are used to getting at BR.
I ordered the Louisiana salad. Found the chichen mediocre and dry. Dressing was put on salad in circlular motion . Terrible presentation. Looked like zero effort was put into preparing it!
My husband had ribs and he also was disappointed in the portion size. Said they were just inundated with sauce.Next time i am in Quartier des Spectacle, I will not go to Baton Rouge. Service was very good though. But quality of food vs price was not impressive.
Thank you!

Nous sommes allez durant le festival juste pour rire. Nous avions réservé et une chance parce que le restaurant était bondée de monde ce soir là. Nous avons attendu que quelques minutes avec notre réservation. Je n'ai pa aimé notre table pour 2 car tous les serveurs y passait avec leur cabaret d'assiettes sales etc... Le bruit était très élevé et se n'était pas du tout relaxant. Je trouve que notre serveuse ne connaissait pas vraiment bien son menu et n'a pas bien répondu à nos questions par rapport aux portions, cuisson etc.. Mon assiette est arrivée sans les légumes et nous avons pas beaucoup vu notre serveuse.

Spécialement tu les cotes levée. On se rend bien compte que vous avez réduit vos portions de frites et de la salades de choux . C'est parfait comme ça.

c'est un restaurant très bruyant.
J'ai réservé en ligne, ce qui ne m'a pas permis de demander une place plus éloignée des gens qui attendent. Nous avions une banquette, ce qui est parfait pour nous, par contre, les gens qui attendent et qui placotent juste à côté, c'est dérangeant.

The restaurant was completely full the night we went as it was during the Jazz Festival. Amidst the high level of noise and large crowds, our waitress was very attentive, helpful and caring. She made us feel at home and was very gracious.
The food was very tasty and well prepared. Some of the dishes our family had were: the salmon tartare (highly recommended), ribs, club sandwich, children's burger.
The restaurant is very clean, with modern "steakhouse" decor. There are alot of staff on hand to take care of the guests.

The food was nothing exceptional; however, it was delicious to taste and it fulfilled its purpose. The location is convenient and ideal during the international jazz festival because of the patio. It is very busy and noisy during the festival season and it is just like any steakhouse the speciality being steak.

Had other patrons seated no more than 6" on either side of us, had bright lights shining on us, ordered a filet mignon and am quite certain that's not what I received, steaks we're not cooked to order and to top if off My wife and I couldn't hear each other over the volume of he band. This restaurant has clearly prioritized squeezing in as many tables as possible and has given little regard to guests looking for a nice evening out...
