The food was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. I will be returning!
We LOVED Restaurant 1796. We were visiting from Mississippi, celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday. We made a reservation a few months prior and were seated immediately. Our crab and artichoke dip was amazing and everything we ordered was delicious. Three of us got the filet and it was one of the best I’ve tried! Our waiter, Cody, was so fun and cheerful and made the experience even better! We tried the white chocolate bread pudding and it was just so good! Restaurant 1796 was by far the best restaurant we tried in St. Francisville and I can’t wait to go back one day!
Wow, wow, wow! Absolutely delicious! The food and service was beyond my expectations! Will drive back from NOLA to eat there!!
This restaurant never disappoints, and frequently surprises us with exciting new seasonal menu items. We started with a drink on the beautiful patio, and when we moved into the dining room for dinner we loved the flavors of each course. I don't think you'll find fresher farm to table food in the area. I highly recommend venturing out to this special place.
Loooooooooooooooooooved everything. Will be back.
Amazing ! Food was spectacular & service was great
The ambience, food and drinks were all wonderful, and the setting is of course a whole wonder in its own right, but the real experience is made extra special by the staff running the restaurant-- every single person who was part of our experience was delightful and we had a great time because of them.
We enjoyed it very much !! Steak was great. Service was fast.
The food was delicious. Wait time took a while and our server wasnt very friendly. Music was kind of loud but they eventually turned it down. It is a beautiful place and the food is outstanding.
Beautifully designed lawns and outdoors. Fast service and good quality.
One of the best experiences for myself and my sister on our trip to Saint Francisville.
Very interesting and flavorful. Not ordinary southern food. Making the core southern cuisine over the top. Makes me proud of my Louisiana culture. Not a tourist trap.
Great cozy atmosphere. Just fancy enough to feel special but not out of place if your dressed casual.
Overpriced. Portion size was laughable. Nothing spectacular about the taste or size of the meal that would justify paying the outrageous price. Waitress was nice. Atmosphere was nice.
Wonderful dining experience. Bar service was great and cocktails/food were delicious. Would recommend!!
My husband absolutely loved his steak. Just drooled the entire time. And the crab spinach and artichoke dip was nothing short of heavenly. Our waiter forgot a side dish so comped a bread pudding for dessert. OMG - if you eat nothing else there, you must try that. It was unbelievable. And the mint chocolate chip ice cream was made with real mint leaves. The entire meal was absolutely wonderful.
Awesome food. Prices are high but worth it. Interior design well laid out.
Our group went here after a tour at the Myrtles. It's beautifully done, and the food is excellent. Cocktails & wine choices are excellent as well. I had made the reservation for my birthday. Unfortunately, nothing was said about my BD, but that's ok. Service was great. It's not inexpensive, but it is a nice place to go in St. Francisville. I'll be back.
Service couldn’t be better. Great ambiance, great food, great time! Definitely worth the drive and a phenomenal way to wrap up a day of hiking.
My wife and I celebrated our 1st Wedding Anniversary at 1796 and we were not disappointed. We chose to sit at the bar at the hearth and it was such a cool experience. We enjoyed talking with the sous chef Jonathan and almost feeling like we were part of the process. The experience at 1796 is so unique to the Baton Rouge area and although it's about an hour away from our home, it is more than worth the drive. The food was sooo good and we're looking forward to future weekend "staycations" very soon!
The filet was outstanding and cooked to perfection. More than a tablespoon of potatoes would be nice!
Absolutely a great experience: service, food and atmosphere. Virginia was our server, and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and it's options. We thoroughly appreciate farm-to-table style restaurants as well as historical buildings with their personality and charm...not to mention possible visits from original residents.
Love the food and drinks
I will be returning in the future
Only thing I would change is the service.
Good food, good people, good atmosphere. Very enjoyable experience.
Table or the bar is great. Excellent atmosphere everywhere.
Our second time eating here and we absolutely love it. The waiter and waitress are always so friendly and give us laughs. We will definitely be back.
Love this restaurant! Service was outstanding!
If you aren’t eating here you’re missing out! My wife and I ate here the other night 09/16/2020 while staying at the Myrtles. I can’t begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our meal.
Our appetizer was scrumptious. My wife said the shrimp and grits was hands down the best she had ever eaten. My steak was grilled to perfection. The drinks were out of this world.
The atmosphere was Clean and inviting. You could smell the wood smoke from the cooking. With COVID-19 going on everyone was socially distanced properly, so there were no concerns there.
The service was second to none. Our waitress was very attentive and we wanted for nothing. They were quite busy but the staff utilized a lot of teamwork to ensure that everything was perfect for their guests.
Definitely try this place. They have a very talented chef with a great staff who value attention to detail. Make no mistake, my wife and I will make it a point to eat here every time we are in St Francisville.
My family and I GREATLY enjoyed our Sunday brunch! The food was delicious and the bottomless mimosa's were a great touch. We had young children at our table and our waitress was so attentive to them, which was extremely thoughtful and made our brunch easy!
Great food and cool atmosphere!! Love Kev the bartender!! Drinks were delicious!!!
Enjoyed the atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was slow
The whole experience was great! Will definitely go back!
The food and cocktails were superb, and very well worth their prices. Our waiter was not very attentive, and was slow to respond. I cannot wait to go back and try more of their dishes, but it will be difficult not to order the fabulous Shrimp and Grits again.
Fabulous Brunch! Bottomless Mimosas, unique menu, great service, beautiful atmosphere!
The ambiance in this restaurant is conducive to an exquisite experience! The atmosphere is both rustic and elegant. Cody our server was very knowledgeable regarding drinks and the menu. He was efficient and friendly. The food was truly remarkable!
The food and atmosphere was excellent. Very nice place with great service,
Restaurant 1796 is a favorite of ours. We go several times a month but this time we celebrated by birthday. I loved getting my favorite dessert. Everything was delicious as always.
This restaurant has been beautifully renovated and the food was fantastic. Appetizers to desserts, we were not disappointed!
Service, atmosphere, staff, and food was all great! They put us in a little side room with gorgeous windows and a view of the courtyard. Highly recommend!
Pina colada French toast was amazing! The quiche dish was divine. Will definitely be back.
