    I made reservations for a party of 4 with outdoor dining. We arrived right on time but waited while 2 parties without reservations were seated before us. We were not seated outdoors because they said they were overbooked for patio dining. Two of us found the indoor dining uncomfortably chilly. There was an empty 2 top next to our table for 4 indoors, but looking on the patio, there were two 4 tops being occupied by a party of only 2. The service was slow and our requests for drink refills had to be requested twice and then the refills were finally brought…with our check. The food was delicious and usually the service is excellent. However, this is our first experience with the Sunday brunch. Maybe we will just avoid the brunch in the future.

    In town for a wedding and wanted to try somewhere new. Come to Baton Rouge often. Website pics looked nice. Booked outdoor patio. There are two areas outdoor… one covered and one not covered. Covered areas have fans blowing on tables. Open table booked us an uncovered table. It was hot and had mosquitoes. Didn’t bring water for ten minutes. Tried to give us other peoples food twice. We only stayed for appetizer which was boudin quesadillas and drinks. Quesadillas were amazing. Would order them again if we ever go back. Old fashion drink was not good at all. Good selection of wine. We decided to leave after that and go somewhere indoor. Service was very slow. Not usually picky or leave reviews but hope this helps on both sides.

    Went to SoLou Thursday night. It was packed, with a very fun and relaxed vibe. Service was excellent - we never had to wonder where our server was, and food and drinks arrived promptly. The cocktails were excellent, and they had a really good wine selection. Appetizers were delicious: we had the shrimp corn dogs, fish dip, and charbroiled oysters. She really enjoyed her lobster, and my fish in the bag was great. We finished up with drinks next door at Olive or Twist. Overall, a great meal and date night!

    The food is lack luster and over priced. Crawfish beignets were dry. The restaurant is cold and the server disappears for quite a while leaving us needing refills with no drinks.

    I picked SoLou as a fun brunch spot and it was a super fun atmosphere. The staff was great. I had the bottomless mimosa and it was such a good idea. I also had the truffle fries as an appetizer and they were so good and not too filling. The French toast hit the spot. It was just the amount of sweet.

    Our server seemed overwhelmed. After we had eaten our appetizers she came & told us that our order had been lost. She said that she had just put it in. We ended up being at SoLou from 11:45 am to 1:20 pm. Had we been in a hurry this would have been a problem. The amazing food made up for the limited service. Our waitress was not overly attentive. The atmosphere is wonderful ! We had to ask for the pork skins.

    Great ambiance! We visited for brunch! The boudin biscuits were good. I had the chicken and waffles, I asked for extra crispy chicken but it could’ve been fried a little crispier. The waffle could’ve been harder as well. We had beignets puffs and they are just that, puffs. I wouldn’t get those again. The mimosas were good. Also the complimentary pork skins and cotton candy were delicious. The atmosphere was beautiful. I’ll return to try other options.

    SouLou staff are extremely slow. Our waitress did not check on us throughout our meal. The restaurant did not have a full house and still sat 45 to 50 minutes before our food arrived to the table. We were given water with no ice . The water was Luke warm. I ordered dessert and it took almost 30 minutes to arrive to the table and it was nasty. I was very disappointed with my experience.

    One of the more interesting menus in the city with standard-fare (poboys, salads, hamburgers) being given what could be described as "nouveau-creole" twist - even the queso!

    We really enjoyed our visit. Our waitress was fabulous. We were sitting in the back of the restaurant. I didnt get her name but she was very accommodating especially with my 6 year old granddaughter. The only issue and it really was not an issue was that the grilled cheese on the kids menu was waaay too fancy for a childs taste. Kids are just looking for the-standard fare of melted cheddar cheese. The waitress was kind enough to replace it with tenders.
