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 am writing in response to the review you placed in regards to your disappointment at Baton Rouge. I have to apologise to you that you had a bad dining experience. It shocks me that the Prime Rib came out to your table "ice cold" when we do actually have it in our warmer during the evening as we also... 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

Good service. Nice and quick for a business lunch. Refills of drinks kept coming! Huge meals and all good but could maybe be smaller for a lunch as no one finished!

We were in Halifax for one night and staying next door to this restaurant so thought we would give it a try. We didn't have a reservation but were given a booth within 5 mins. Staff really friendly.

Dined at Baton Rouge in Halifax on New Years Eve and the food was an absolute joke. The 16 ounce order of back ribs looked like it came off a pig dieing from starvation. The protein make up was 12 ounces bone and 4 ounces meat (maybe). Also the order of prime rib was nothing too rave over either, Ordered... More
