The Gregory at The Watermark Hotel is the premier destination for modern food & wine in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 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 artists of who the restaurant is named after, Angela Gregory. Chefs Justin Lambert and Chad Galiano design menus that utilize fresh and local produce and available organic proteins that offer twists on Southern classic in a modern farm-to- table menu. As a Louisiana-native, Justin brings an influence of Southern cooking styles 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.

We had reserved a table for Thanksgiving Dinner as advertised, but when we got there they said the buffet had ended but we could still get a plate with everything from earlier. We got half of what we e should have. Our waiter seemed annoyed we were even there. He never refilled our drinks. He checked on us once, but after food was served, which was mediocre at best, did not come back. Finally we got fed up waiting for something to drink and no dessert even offered, we had to flag him down to just pay and leave. Do NOT advertise Thanksgiving Dinner and take reservations for it for dinner time at 5 if you are going to stop serving it at 3!!

The ambiance was great However, the menu was somewhat limited and over priced for the quality of food.

Lovely building and hotel. It used to be a bank. The restaurant was hosting a Thanksgiving day buffet. It was absolutely lovely! Enjoyed the food, ambiance and people very much!

A few friends getting together for Friendsgiving. We love The Gregory and can always count on it for a great unique meal. Wish the chargrilled oysters were still on the menu. They were the best in town! Hopefully they’ll be back.

I would like to give feedback on the food however I am not able to because we were never seated. I walked up to the table to be seated and was told that they only were taking reservations. I then went online and made a reservation and when I came back up I was told they were no longer taking reservations. The staff was rude and dismissive, and overall I just felt like nobody wanted to serve us for whatever reason. We were told that they could not take reservations because they took too many walk-ins, however this went against what the staff had just told us. Just go somewhere else to eat where they actually take reservations, or actually want people to go to the restaurant!

Literal frat event happening ten feet from us the whole time. Wish someone would’ve told us when making the reservation. Everyone was apologetic but the frat boys remained there and were ratchet as hell.

Food and service were both great. Did not realize that the restaurant was literally in the hotel lobby open to people in and out of the hotel. We had a great experience and would recommend

The Gregory was amazing. My husband and I was celebrating our 11 year anniversary. The atmosphere was very inviting, the food was superb and our waiter was awesome. I will most definitely be returning, and I will also be referring this restaurant to my family and friends ...

Service was slow and waiter was not attentive enough. This may be more of the post COVID issues in the hospitality industry, but it definitely could’ve been better. Food was very good, very fairly priced in a cool ambiance. The bar needs to be better stocked, but is a place I will try again for a pregame drink and meal.

A good hotel restaurant. Atmosphere is open in the lobby/bar/restaurant all part of one very large room. They seem to pull this off pretty well but if you're looking for an intimate setting, this isn't it. Having said that, it is loud and distracting. Food and service were both very good.

If I had to pick a restaurant, it would be The Gregory all the time. The food and seasoning was amazing! Drinks are satisfying which you only need one! Everytime I visit BR, I make it a point to have dinner or drinks at this Restaurant. Top 10 for sure.

We went for my friends birthday! I hostess was so sweet and funny. Our waitress Priscilla was very helpful and very detail oriented. I appreciate it how they did a cake for my friend and record I seen a happy birthday. Additionally the flatbreads were fantastic and we wanted to split something to put in two separate bowls for us they were really really nice. I highly recommend it

A gifted chef, a lovely open dining room and kitchen, an excellent knowledgeable wait person ( her name is Christine), DELICIOUS dinner, a menu that uses fresh ingredients...you couldn't ask for a better dining experience. I had the fish of the day, Corvina, seated on a bed of fettuccine, with spinach and blistered tomatoes and a lovely miso sauce for that added umami...great experience...

A not so hidden gem of the Baton Rouge restaurant scene. The food was outstanding (frog legs, duck, and shrimp tortellini) and the cocktails were a perfect match to our delicious dinner. Service was friendly and caring. Highly recommended for a date night with your loved one.

Food and Service was outstanding! Atmosphere needs improvement. In my opinion, this is primarily due to the restaurant being located in the lobby with no dividing area to separate it from the lobby. This could be accomplished with a glass partitions or even strategically place plants. If The Gregory were to make these improvements, this would greatly improve the overall experience.

Thanks.
