  • Good for special occasions
  • Charming
  • Great for creative cocktails
The only place to get true Creole food is in Louisiana, or at least in someone from Louisiana’s kitchen. Come reste un peu (stay awhile) to downtown Baton Rouge and visit Chef Mark Reilly's Creole kitchen.

    Cornbread was priced a bit high. Pasta was great, but $30 was pricey.

    Cecelia's Bistro was an unexpected surprise. We just searched for food near us, we read the reviews and gave it a shot. Service was top notch, Food was exactly how described and delicious, great drink menu and atmosphere. Only tiny small issue was noise level but when busy like they were I guess that is a good thing to have. Cheers.

    The food, specialty cocktails were great but the service was amazing! This restaurant was with a few blocks of our hotel so my son and I decided to try their place as it was highly recommended on Trip Advisor and Open Table. We had the corn bread and brussel sprouts as appetizers. The corn bread was delicious with its maple sauce and would be wonderful as a dessert too! The brussel sprouts were served perfectly. They were crispy on the outside and soft in the middle and the sauce along with the addition of apples were a pleasant surprise. We had the grouper and redfish which were both perfectly cooked in a traditional Cajun style with wonderful toppings and sides. The server recommended several of their specialty cocktails for us and they did not disappoint! Even better was the friendly and professional service from the moment you walked in the door until you left. I highly recommend you make a stop if you are in the area!

    Crab Cakes were so spicy and not able to eat. We can handle spice but it took away the flavor of the crab! Excellent service though.

    Best lunch date spot in Baton Rouge. The French dip is my favorite sandwich downtown! The service was perfect as always.

    The service was excellent! The presentation of the food was beautiful but the food didn't match it. I ordered a bowl of gumbo, and the roux tasted scorched. I also ordered the alligator bites for our appetizer, and again, the presentation was beautiful, but I didn't care for them either. Our waiter was very professional and served us very well! I guess I was disappointed because of all the hype from others to eat here. To me, it was definitely overrated.

    We started with for her the Pomegranate Martini and for me the Satsuma Mule both delicious. I had the wedge salad and wife had the house salad, again both delicious. Wife had crab cake as her entree, she rates it phenomenal. I had the blackened grouper which I think is one of the best dishes in all of downtown. Service is always amazing.
