This was my 5th or so meal at this location so I will note first that all my other experiences were very positive. On our last visit however, the service was really slow. We four were seated quickly and our drink orders taken. Then we waited and waited...no drinks. One of the other servers even made note of it and... More

The food was good, the service was okay, but it was a little pricey, especially for Halifax. There was a ton of staff on, but most of them didn't seem to be doing much.

A friend and I were starving after a long day of meetings, but we were not interested in the bar or pub scene - all we wanted was good food and a glass of wine! We stumbled onto Baton Rouge and were attracted to the posted menu (specifically a steak with blue cheese) and were not disappointed. After reading reviews... More

Also was our first time to Halifax. We were looking for a break from seafood (although the seafood is excellent in Halifax!). This was listed as a steakhouse. Decor very nice. Service a bit on the slow side. As a result, food did not arrive very hot. We probably should have mentioned it but had been waiting and were hungry!!... More

Solid, but not outstanding, choice for steak and lobster. Excellent service @Thomas. Nice atmosphere. Convenient location to the pier. Children's menu had large portions (burger and fries, chicken fingers and fries). New York sirloin with peppercorn sauce did not disappoint except for size (only offered at 12 oz) but not one of the best I've had. My spouse said the... More

This restaurant was in a great location -- right across from our hotel, so we simply walked there. We came here for dinner with great expectations, and all of them were fully met. We were seated promptly -- downstairs near the bar. There were no crowds, since Happy Hour was over, it was a weekday and it was off-season. There... More

My husband and I went for dinner at 6:30 on a Friday evening. We were sorry we missed Happy Hour which ended at 6:00. We were promptly seated upstairs and were immediately impressed with the atmosphere-- a renovated tea exporting business. My husband and I shared a delicious house salad and each had the linguini with shrimp and scallops. We... More

Good RIbs and Chicken, decent wine selection at decent prices. Service was fast and attentive but not fake or pretentious, went early, about 6pm on a weekday. Overall, good experience will go back. They also had outdoor setup, I ate inside, nice building near casino/historic prop.

After dinning in the Halifax area for a week and paying top dollar for any wine, stopped here and found they were one of the few places in the city to embrace corkage. Way to go! The ribs were great and the service great. If your tired of paying $40 (before tax and tip) for a $12 bottle of wine,... More
