The Gregory at The Watermark Hotel is Baton Rouge, Louisiana's premier destination for modern food & wine. Located off the lobby of the hotel, in the former Bank of Louisiana, our restaurant is centered between an open kitchen and a full bar surrounded by murals painted by the artist of who the restaurant is named, Angela Gregory. Chefs Patrick Trahan, Brock Nichols, and Jonathan White design menus that utilize fresh and local produce and available organic proteins that offer twists on Southern classics in a modern farm-to-table menu. As a Louisiana native, Patrick influences Southern cooking styles by employing our wood-stone oven, Spanish Josper oven, and cast-iron grill to elevate flavors and create one-of-a-kind dishes in the downtown Baton Rouge area.

    Based on pictures, the restaurant has a more formal aesthetic. In reality, it’s pretty casual & is in the hotel lobby. Because it’s in the lobby, how loud it is depends on how many people are in the lobby. If you get a steak, the steak sides are not shareable portions. The drinks were good!

    Amazing food and service! Would definitely come back again. I just wish bar patrons would understand that while it's a hotel lobby, it's still a restaurant. No need to constantly yell and hover over tables to talk to friends at the bar. Noise level was a little overwhelming when trying to have an nice dinner.

    I brought my sister and her husband to the Gregory for her birthday brunch. The food was absolutely delicious, and the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The interior of the hotel, restaurant and even the bathrooms were beautiful and very clean. I made a very good choice in the Gregory for a nice birthday event for my sister.

    Hostess and server were friendly and cool, very personable. Food and drinks were great. Only issue is the valet stole a very sentimental piece from my car, so I’ll definitely never go here again or use valet again.

    It was busy because of the governor's inauguration so service was a bit slow, but the server was very efficient and polite. Bar service was slow but the drinks were good. I had the grilled salmon which was perfectly cooked and the creamed spinach was delicious. The wine list is good.

    The service and food were excellent. We arrived at 6 and it was pretty loud for about 30 min then a bunch of people at the bar left and it was much easier to hear each other at the table.

    Wine was superior, food was unique and wonderful (especially the creamed fresh spinach!). Our reservation was changed to an earlier time for no obvious reason. Almost no one was in the restaurant for some time, but it was okay. We enjoyed our meal!

    It was ten minutes for a wait person to help us. Most of the food at the buffet was cold. The cornbread dressing was burned. The other sides were bland. The salmon was cold. There was only three small broken pieces of pie left.

    There is nothing mentioned on Open Table that this restaurant only offered a limited buffet and not the full menu. They still have the Thanksgiving menu posted online?? Someone called me 2 days before to confirm our reservation and mentioned that a buffet would be AVAILABLE, no mention that this was the only option. Very disappointed.

    Dined on Christmas Day, prime rib buffet. Thankful that the restaurant was open, but disappointed with the experience. Prime rib was decent, but all other hot food items from buffet were lukewarm to cold. Found the quality of food lacking vs. the price ($75/person).

    The flour was not cooked in the gumbo making it chalky tasting. The cornbread dressing was inedible. The salmon had very little taste and was cold. And the apple pie was refrigerated and stone cold which completely baffles me. The greens and corn were good and the service was friendly and attentive. The parking staff was particularly helpful and attentive.

    I took my employees to the Gregory for Christmas lunch. I was asked if I wanted casual dining or the dining room. I selected the dining room. When we arrived the dining room was closed, and we were seated in the casual area. The casual area has the feeling of sitting in the middle of the lobby. There was a Christmas tree decorated and that was it. The food was good, (not great) but the menu was extremely limited. Each person ended up ordering the same dish. The steak was very good and tender. Everyone ordered the same desert; bananas foster bread pudding. It was not soft; in fact, it required a knife to cut it into bite size pieces. It was nothing special. Overall, it was disappointing. It did not feel like the special Christmas treat I was hoping to give my employees.

    Our waiter was absolutely amazing. I would actually keep coming back to this restaurant just to have her serve me. She really embodied her role as a waitress. The food was delicious however, it could’ve been more of a serving for the cost. Also, my husband was upset due to their BN a different menu. You posted on the social media Instagram page versus the one we were given when we were seated so he wasn’t able to order what he actually wanted, otherwise, I would definitely give it a 4 1/2 star reading. I cannot complain. It was a last-minute booking for our fifth year anniversary and we truly enjoyed everything about it.

    We don't tend to be 'fancy place' people but went here to celebrate our niece's grad school graduation. The staff were all very friendly and kind, that food was tasty, the bar is extensive and has a variety of price points. There was live music that was a nice touch.

    The salad and soup delicious. The last time I was there it was very bad and I can tell that the new chef has come in and made it his own. If you went before and you didn’t love it go try it again it has a great wine list as well.

    Touted as a great "date night" location, The Gregory" is actually a lobby restaurant, with no date night ambiance and mediocre food. We ordered a wedge salad and asked that it be chopped in the kitchen. Our waitress didn't know what to do so she asked the manager who said no. There were three tables with customers and two people in the kitchen doing nothing, so resources were not the issue. The manager was standing around yawning widely for all to see. These guys could learn a thing or two about service. Would not go back again or recommend.

    We had the Bronzed Redfish and the Salmon. Both were delicious and fresh tasting. The Redfish had a meunière sauce with potato mash that was very good. The Salmon had a pesto sauce over it with a buttery sauce underneath and sat atop sautéed spinach. The fish filets were cooked to perfection. And the salad we shared had a nice vinaigrette and lots of pecans, goat cheese and tomatoes and mixed lettuces. It was a great meal !

    The menu, food, and ambience at The Gregory are wonderful— an oasis in downtown Baton Rouge. The service was not up to the same standard. Only five minutes or so after our salads were served, the main courses arrived. The server was able to cram everything onto the table, but it was very awkward, and the salad plates were still on the table after the main course plates were taken away. The server might have benefited from better training— she also seemed quite unsure of how to open a bottle of wine.

    While our waiter was polite and attentive, food delivery took a long time. Our omelettes were fine but they were out of potatoes (at 12:30 on a Sunday morning) so grits or fruit were the only options left. My fruit cup was an odd and underwhelming combo of grapes and pineapple. A bread side (biscuit, muffin or even toast) is pretty standard with an egg entree but wasn’t included.

    Visited for Sunday Brunch, table of four. Service was slow on this occasion, seated promptly, but slow to bring waters, take drink orders, and bring drinks. Food was good, but not particularly noteworthy. Still, the ambience of the room is great and makes for a nice brunch with friends. Valet parking service is a plus, as was the live musicians in the background.
