Took my husband for his birthday and it was a wonderful choice! As we approached, the door swept open, we were greeted warmly and seated. Every table in the house is great. A glass of complimentary champagne was served and the wine by the glass we chose for our dinner was perfectly matched to our dishes. My husband had the tuna tartare with caviar and I had short rib ravioli as starters. My entrée was asparagus risotto with lobster and my husband had the crab cake which was beautifully presented. Both dishes were excellent. We were offered a choice of breads at the beginning of the evening and again during dinner - all of the breads were delicious. For desert, I had the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and my husband had the maple mousse - again, both were excellent! As we were enjoying an expresso, madeleines, warm from the oven, were presented in a small paper cone. They were so good we wanted to finish them but after two each, we just couldn't eat another bite. After the check was presented, a small bag was delivered to the table with two portions of complimentary cake for the birthday boy. Even without the extra treat of complimentary champagne and cake, the three course prix fixe dinner was fabulous and the extras put us over the moon!

As was indicated by my star ratings, this is a superb restaurant. It is beautiful, the food is extraordinary, and the service is gracious and attentive. My only criticism is about the music which I would prefer to be generationally neutral rather than music my late parents would have found pleasing.

I really want to love this restaurant. The room is serene and beautiful. The food is high quality, delicious and well presented. The servers are all attractive and attentive. So what’s not to like? There is an air of pretension that just doesn’t fit downtown Easton. Feel like I should apologize for not ordering $100 bottle of wine (cheap end of the list). I’ll go back and enjoy it, but not often.

This is the hidden jewel on the Eastern Shore. My wife and I would looking for something new to try in Easton and found this online. The menu looked very interesting so we decided to give it a try on her birthday. We were stunned by the quality and presentation of each of the dishes. Our daughter lives in NYC and we dine there often and this was every bit as good as any meal we have had there. Definitely worth the expense.

Fabulous dinner (again). This time we opted for the 3 course. I had the lobster cavatelli, rockfish and cheese course. My husband had the truffle pasta for his main. Any seafood dish here is exceptional every time, by the way. Pasta courses are always excellent in terms of inventive flavors. Portion size for pastas can be uneven - sometimes a lot sometimes a moderate amount. Always enough food I just never quite know what the pasta portion will be. Soups are always exceptional. Cheese course is a nice addition to the dessert options. Wine list is very well thought out. We've never had anything but great wine here. The staff is so well trained and delightful. (Also when the bread comes around, get one of those cheddar biscuits.) We've taken a few trips this summer and included some high end restaurants along the way and each time, we are sitting there saying to each other, well it's good but it's not Bas Rouge.

This is a spectacular restaurant experience in the heart of Easton, MD. From the time you walk into the door until your coffee is poured, your are provided with a warm welcome, expert service, knowledgable staff, creative and delicious food all served in an intimate European styled dining room. We enjoy it for special occasions and getting together with friends who enjoy this type of elegant evening. It is worth the drive from wherever you live and worthy of the reputation that has been built over the past couple years. Treat your spouse and enjoy the magic of the evening.

The restaurant was preparing for a very special Champagne dinner that night and the lunch menu was a bit limited. What we had was good, but not what we would have ordered given a normal lunch. Then service remains amazing. Thanks.

Am Ian even: It is a little stuffy.
Food is very good but menu is limited.
Desserts- How about a chocolate that is chocolate and not so busy with other stuff. Sometimes quality flavors are meant to be savored for what they are. Chocolate is one of them. ( I'm not a chocolate person!)

I was disappointed by the entré, rack of lamb. There were only two chops, on a bed of succotash that looked like it came from a can, all of which was only slightly warm. One would think that for a prix fixe of $85 per person, there might have been more than three courses, and at least three lamb chops. The service and ambiance are superb.

We had a lovely dinner this Saturday evening. The food was impeccable and the service was first class. The ambiance was great, the decor was beautiful, and the service was professional and friendly. Our dishes were presented hot and the attention to detail was stunning. The food was so fresh and perfectly seasoned and prepared. From the asparagus soup amuse bouche, the delectable veal ravioli with poached egg yolk and white foam, to the buttery miso sole, to the almond nut cake- it was the best of the best at each course. The wine selection was impressive, and the complimentary warm cake bites at the end of our meal, and a piece of olive oil cake to take home, made the entire experience five star ⭐️! We will be back for another wonderful meal.

Absolutely outstanding evening. Finally a great restaurant on the eastern shore!,. Stay at the inn at Perry Cabin but eat here for high end New York Quality dining at very reasonable prices. Service perfect. Ambience lovely. They even prepared a vegan meal for one of us (needed advance notice). I can easily see this becoming a destination restaurant to build a weekend around for DC Baltimore Philadelphia foodies

The ambiance and service were excellent during our recent dinner. Very cozy and quiet for a special occasion. The food was very good, however in comparing the food and prices to other French restaurants in the DC metro area that we have enjoyed often, it wouldn't be my first choice. Bas Rouge adds positively to a good variety of restaurant offerings in Easton, though. Creative offerings for entrees and artistic presentation but portions could be a little more generous. We were offered bread by service only once at the beginning of the meal. We may visit again.

What a gem! Outstanding service and ambiance. The food has to be good too, and it is. Sauces are flavorful without being too heavy or rich. Seasonings were spot on, enough to accent the meal but not too much. It's at the upper end of what I want to pay but well worth it!
