We went here on Valentine’s Day and they offered a menu for that. We chose to eat from it and even though it was different than what I’m use to, the food was remarkable. I truly enjoyed the experience.

Incredible food. Everything we sample (and it was a lot of dishes) was fantastic. People really need to come check this place out.

Showed up with a party of 7 and they were shut down even though I had a reservation. Will never try here again.

We really liked the small plates menu. We ate in the restaurant, but the lounge on the other side of the bar looked like a great place to grab a drink.

This was one of the worst dining experiences that I have ever had. This is not an upscale quality restaurant. It is a hotel bar / restaurant that has children climbing the walls, running around, throwing things, yelling and screaming. I also ordered the char grilled oysters. I do not even think that they saw a flame. The oysters were raw with lemon all over them. I specifically asked before I ordered and was extremely disappointed. I truly do not have any complaint where our waiter is concerned. He did the best he could with what he had to work with. Extremely overpriced for any of what you get.

Service was attentive, more so than one would expect at a hotel buffet.

Breakfast/brunch buffet side dishes were tasty - Grits, croissants and bacon. Their mimosas are made with freshly squeezed orange juice and are EXCELLENT.

The star of the show should have been the omelet bar, and that's where we were disappointed. We had to wait a long time to get the eggs. The chef left out the cheese in both of them, and my omelet was overcooked. Also, they weren't ready together, so I had to return to the bar twice to pick them up.

So... Even though I said "no," on my recommendation, I'd give them another chance. I would just stick with the rest of the buffet, avoid the omelets, and have a second mimosa. :-)

First and last time. Too expensive, little value. Spent 120.00, no cocktails nor wine.
My wife's filet was overlooked. My chicken portion was minuscule for 27.00. Sides were measured with teaspoons. The shrimp cocktail was well priced but lacked dressing.
Service extreme slow especially for the 3-4 tables that were taken and the amount of FOH team members.
Lastly parking is very inconvenient.
Thank you.

Food was good - no surprise as we've dined there previously. Waitress was pleasant but seemed to take longer than necessary being that the restaurant was only half full. There was a wedding/reception taking place at the adjoining hotel while we were dining which may have affected our serve/wait time. After selecting desserts offered by waitress she came back and told us that the chef said he was out of one of the desserts.

Food is outstanding. Unfortunately surroundings are not at the same level. Restaurant facility seems like an afterthought. You feel like you are sitting in a table someone just set up in the lobby. Zero ambiance. However, quality of the food, both taste and presentations along with outstanding service more than makes up for the unfortunate location and delivers a very possible experience. Won't go back but would highly recommend to anyone staying in the hotel. As good as anything you would find in Baton Rouge so why drive around, enjoy!!

We went for an early dinner and each had a salad that were both satisfying. Grilled romaine with oysters and artichoke; wedge salad with cup of gumbo. Nice dark roux for the gumbo. Plump fried oysters.
When there is music by the bar it is quite noisy.
