    For some reason, this particular night, the restaurant seemed very disorganized. We made reservations for the inside dining room and they tried to seat us outside. Then we had to wait 30 minutes for an inside table. I was told two different prices for corkage fee, however, they did honor the one that I was told over the phone. All and all the food was great and the service at the table was great, but the front of the house needs some work.

    Service was great until the last few minutes. We paid for a piece of pie to go and after 15 minutes of paying the check we still had not received our pie or the cotton candy. I had to ask the bar attendant to check on the pie order. I guess my $10 tip wasn’t enough to finish out the service. We only had 2 in our party.

    Really disappointing. Waited 20 minutes after our scheduled reservation time to be seated. Server was completely absent and inattentive. Never cleared appetizer plates and never refilled beverages, we assumed was possibly his first day on the job. Then, unbelievably half-way through the meal, a large house fly (half dead) wriggled out of fish taco. We alerted the manager and showed her the bug on the plate and she apologized and agreed to remove that entree off of our bill. To make matters worse, later that evening I realized our server hadn’t returned my credit card. It was still at the restaurant and I was able to retrieve it the following day. Sadly, although we had a great experience at Solou about a year ago, after this second and very poor dining experience, we do not ever plan on returning.

    SoLou has a decent vibe. We went on a Sunday afternoon, so it was very busy. Our waiter seemed a little overwhelmed, so we were left waiting after a couple of requests. Still, I think I would return and ask to be seated outdoors, if weather permits.

    I LOVED my food and the vibe was awesome. This was my second time going but my first time outside sitting. I ordered the ribs though I didn’t see them on any reviews. They were AMAZING! As a side I got the mashed potatoes with the rosemary sauce.

    The atmosphere and drinks were great, but the food left much to be desired. The crawfish beignets were very over cooked, the soft shell crab entree and seared tuna shareable were too salty, and the “truffle” fries were basically fries with Parmesan sprinkled on top. I’m not sure where the truffle came in to play. The service was great and our waitress was very attentive. I don’t think I’ll be eating there again.

    I actually found the service to be a little slow which was unfortunate because the power went out about 15 minutes after we were seated and all we had managed to order was drinks. After the power went out they finally told us they would come around to collect our payment. I had to track someone down so I could pay and we could go somewhere else to eat

    Unimpressed first ding experience. Extremely loud, unenjoyable, non-relaxing environment with super bright lighting. Food was mediocre. Salad was drenched in dressing and the fish in the bag was loaded with bones. Wine on menu unavailable.

    We’ve tried eating here twice now since opening, and it’s just ok. The menu is pretty limited but tries to be unique. To me, things feel very fried or just missing the mark based on their price point. Our server switched our drinks. No biggie. But the cocktails were served filled with ice and not like a high level experience. The food was also just not up to par for the price we paid. My fish in paper was filled with bones. I picked small bones and scales out of every bite. Softshell crab lacked real flavor but was priced like a top notch dish. Shrimp and grits were just ok. They obviously found a fan base, but with other fresh and flavorful options in Baton Rouge, this one is not for me.

    Beautiful spot, both inside and out. The food was great, but naturally a bit on the small side. For my veggie girls, the Zyedco Cauliflower is bomb. This is a good brunch spot, a nice date option & it’s pretty affordable. I spent about $53 (not including tip) between two people but we didn’t drink. I heard the Champagne Bar is a good choice & its $20 so that’s not bad altogether.

    Reservation not ready in time even though our entire party was there a few minutes early. Almost 20 minutes late seating us. Sat us outside in the heat under a fan that didn’t work. Food orders were incorrect. Offered free desert and then failed to deliver one of the orders.

    We had a great time celebrating! Our server was nice, though very soft spoken. Everyone got their correct menu item. It did take a while for him to bring out the checks. But he did excellent otherwise. The food was very good. The beignets were flaky and covered in sugar and the raspberry sauce added a nice flavor, my girls loved the chicken and waffles, the shrimp and grits were savory and delicious, and the boudin biscuits were really good. The noise was loud, and the AC was blowing strong, so everyone was very chilly. The decor was beautiful and the patio was inviting. The bathrooms were nice, except no changing table for my baby.
