Definately Going Back - Awesome Spot!

Husband and I went to this restaurant in the evening hours. Atmosphere was romantic and relaxed. Service was excellent! Food fantastic! The chef even delivered a complimentary place of ribs, just to try. The wine was divine. Definitely going back.

Food is very good. No more expensive than Jack Asters. Only you don't walk away hungry. Love it. And the spinach dip is so good. Helen C.

I found this place to be very loud and the food was not very good. I thought it was very expensive for a meal that lacked depth and flavour. Also, after asking what beers were on tap, the one I chose they were out of...

First time, will absolutely be going back. Prime rib you could cut it with a spoon,it was so tender. Melt in your mouth. Atmosphere was relaxing. We didn't feel rush at all. Staff was so pleasant. Thanks for making my 28th wedding anniversary awesome.

There are a lot of popular dining establishments in the downtown core of HRM; many of which are favored by locals. As a local I tend to migrate toward locally owned restaurants vs chain restaurants. My recent experience at Baton Rouge has completely changed my tune. Rather than ramble about all the good things I have experienced I have divided... More

This was my second visit to Baton Rough since it opened. I did not care for it when I first tried it after it opened but as I was attending the Bryan Adams concert, I thought it was a good choice for dinner. I will never attend this restaurant again. However, before you think it was the service, let me... More

I organized a group of about 40 for a valentine get together. They provided us a lovely spacious room with round tables so we all felt connected. The service was excellent - the waiters were interactive but not annoying or interruptive. Each course came in a timely fashion (not a long gap between salad/soup and entre/Desert). The portions were generous... More
