Wow, this place has a lot of glowing reviews. I was excited to go. I love the idea of local Louisana food done with a French flare, and there is some of that. (I think they should play up that angle more.) The experience was nice, the little house is very charming... but the food just didn't live up to... More

Maison Lacour is a charming, intimate restaurant, and the food is delicious! Thank you TripAdvisor! We were traveling through Baton Rouge on our way to Alabama via I-12. How perfect that the restaurant was very close to the Interstate and that there had been a cancellation at just the time we would be arriving! And on the Eve of Valentine's... More

In a small converted family home on an out-of-the-way street in East Baton is a genuine French restaurant whose cuisine rivals the best of culinary establishments in Paris. Maison LaCour is a perfect spot for a celebratory dinner or an intimate lunch or even an economical early bird dining experience. On a recent visit celebrating my wife's birthday, we feasted... More

This is a very romantic restaurant for a date or small gathering. The food is french with a little cajun flair. A large and varied menu make it a great dining experience!

Began with the best Sazeracs ever (I've had many in NewOrleans) and aKir Royale. We eat here regularly and have for many years. Eva (owner) is from southeastern France and is usually our hostess, exchanging pleasantries in French. As in France, they prepare each dish as it has been served every time through the years. Of note on this dinner... More

This tiny restaurant (seats only about 24 at a time) is a true culinary gem. French cuisine, huge portions, and impeccable service. I had a lovely seafood soup followed by grilled shrimp and vegetables. Make your reservations and be prepared to linger over aperitifs and after dinner cocktails.

Wish I lived close. It's in an old house. We looked around in the rooms and were fascinated with the decor. Our dinner was suberb. My husband and I both had steaks that were very good quality and large portions. Souffle dessert would have been better if it had been served with a sauce. First time I had a souffle... More

Small rooms in which you can be isolated if the restaurant is not full. Low energy staff, green and white interior, hushed voices all around. Felt like a wake.

We recently celebrated a friend's birthday at Maison Lacour. The restaurant offers an Early Bird Special menu but many of the items on that menu are regional in nature and somewhat different than the offerings of the main menu. We decided to order from the main menu. While many of the dishes we shared we very good, nothing stood out... More

My wife and I shared a very nice dinner there recently. It was our 31st anniversary. This is a French restaurant and that is a good thing. We started with escargot and it was very tasty. It was prepared differently than others I have had. These were lighter on the garlic and strong on the olive oil. Most I have... More
