Everything was good. But when I made a reservation for a booth and was seated in what I thought was the waiting section next to the entrance door I was a little upset. It felt like I got served the next open table or just wherever they could put me. What was the point of me making a reservation to get a table like that and freeze every time the door opened. I reserved a table for a date and we ate dinner wearing our jackets. So work needs to done there before I ever go back eating in an igloo ruined our experience. Didn't know making a reservation got me a table in cold....

Food was great. Little pricey but very tasty. Should serve more sides with each meal. Should have more on the menu for people who aren't into steak. Should have more basic appetizers. Overall it was great though.

Food just didn’t taste good for the price. Went with a group of three and none of us enjoyed our meals. Only thing I recommend would be the lobster stuffed mushrooms. The waitress was really nice though and good service.

Food was delicious, was a little irratated when I asked for a booth and waitress said it was only for 4's tonight which I understood and then not even 2 min later the next couple was seated there was a little frustrated. Manager was creepy and lingering around. Jenna our server was great.

My rib steak was over cooked and chewy. My baked potato had no butter , so it was dry. We were seated right by the kitchen. Not good at all. It was our first and last time being there. Our waiter was good but have had way better at other restaurants we continue to go to. I had always wanted to try Bâton Rouge. I just wish it hadn’t been for a Birthday. We will not return at all. Even it was free. No thanks

Hello Stephanie, thank you for your review. it is really disappointing to see that you wanted to try baton rouge for so long and your experience did not meet your expectations. we had a change in our floor plan for valentines day and it was our busiest night since we have opened (in last 5 years) we really want to make sure that every single table leave happy but unfortunately we could not in your case. I will give you a call later today and I would love to discuss this with you. thank you.

My son and I thought we would try here as the keg in the south end is always so busy and further from where we live

To start service was slow eventually some one served us and it was fine after that

We both ordered the French onion soup. Not like the picture actually disappointing very little cheese and bread. We both had steak and lobster. Steak was great tasted and portion was fine. Lobster tail was small but tasted fine. The bill was 155 dollars. To me this was more than the keg and not as satisfying if they stepped it up a bit and could compare to the keg they would do much better

Also the restaurant was not very busy mind you we were there at 530 on a Thursday

With a bit of work I think this could become a favourite restaurant but changes need to happen first

Thanks

Better vegetables. Just 2 carrots and couple pieces of cauliflower. Broccoli and corn would be more appetizing. More choices for the appetizer.

We were disappointed in the fact that we made the appointment online via “OpenTable” for January 2, 2019 & it only gave us the option of 8:30 pm or later. It was for our Anniversary, so I booked it anyway. I later called the Baton Rouge Restaurant and asked if we could not get an earlier time. The woman said “sure”, but when she went to book it via “OpenTable”, she was surprised to see that she too could not get a time earlier than 8:30 pm, despite the fact that she knew it was not packed. She told me that she took care of it and that we could go for 7:00 pm and she had reserved a private booth and noted that it was our anniversary and that it would be quiet. She said that she would personally be there when we would arrive.
When we arrived, the young man didn’t seem to know anything about our anniversary and they put us in the middle of a room in a very large booth and there was a family with very loud kids close by. It was not private at all.
Other than that, the service was quite good, although the dinner was served shortly after our appetizers were served. The food was however excellent!

Server was lovely and I had the prime rib sandwich, which was amazing and had the walnut brownie dessert which was also great. Had a cozy little booth and the noise level was good. Would definitely go back again.

Celebrated my parents 61st wedding anniversary last Saturday at Baton Rouge Steakhouse. My father is a retired Master Chef who spent his last 15 years before retiring teaching Culinary Arts at George Brown College. He's always very critical of the service, the ambiance and the food when we go out. I'm Always looking for somewhere nice to take them for a special occasion. He gave the food two thumbs up and said the service was excellent. It's one of the few restaurants in the area he said he would go back to again as we regularly visit restaurants in the Barrie, Wasaga Beach and Collingwood area.

It was the best new dining experience I have had in a long time. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent, without cutting you on portion size. I couldn't finish my meal, and that never happens. Leftovers!

Unlike a number of other Baton Rouge restaurants that have become worn and run down, this restaurant is in excellent condition with an energetic but nice ambiance. Both our dishes were very tasty. It is apparent that management is very attentive and seeking to provide the best customer experience.

service was good and freindly...maybe a bit pushy...
Calamari app was terrible....overcoooked to death like calamari Jerky...
Dinners were Ok ...my ribs were nicely done but not very tasty...Sweet potatoe fries were really done well.
Pat had steak ....it was done really well too.
Boxed dessert and were chilling over 1/2 glasses of wine and server was right there to get us paid up and out. .. liitle do they know I like really good Single Malts...but not tonight ..no choice....
Glad it was date night and 1/2 price wine.....paid about what I felt was right.... This location A far cry from my experiences in Monteal....totally different place....horrible lighting like black lights ....atmosphere of a sports bar not a nice restaurant.
Wont go back.

I love the quiet and relaxed environment. Our server, Jenna, was amazing. She was helpful, very knowledgeable of the menu, and patient. Her customer service is incredible. As for the food, it was absolutely delicious. The only problem we experienced overall was the gentleman walking around asking how every table’s experience was. This was because when he was at the table next to ours, his voice was loud enough at one point where I could not hear my waitress when she was trying to take my order. I had to ask her to repeat herself 3 times as I could not hear her over the gentleman speaking to the table next to us, even though her volume was at a perfect level.
