Best kept secret in Baton Rouge

This small, secluded cottage has some of the most authentic French cuisine in Baton Rouge. Everything is prepared fresh and from scratch. The owner's wife actually IS French! She's a delightful lady!

From all the great reviews, I was very misled... I'm not sure if it is what we ordered or not...love the atmosphere...love the bread and love the salad...after that it was all downhill for my husband and I...my veal was dry, hardly any crab meat on top, the fish in the bag was oily and extremely fishy...they didn't have the...

The resturant is a cozy little cottage nestled in a park like setting with a mix of Parisian and Southern French style decoration. They offer traditional French cuisine with South Louisiana ingredients. I had a five-course meal with wine. The homemade French bread and Salmon Fume' (smoked salmon served with spicy cream sauce) is something you really should want to... More

We have been dining at Maison La Cour since it first opened in 1986. In particular, we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there. And this year, we celebrated our 53rd anniversary there. We gave dined there on many other occasions too, but those are the highlights. The transition of the host/chef roles to... More

Continental French gem hidden in suburban Baton Rouge. Service can be a bit uneven at times but the issues have been more due to communication than training. The menu is strong across the board is unique in the Baton Rouge area. The Hearts of Palm salad is simple but with great flavor. Escargots, Venison Sausage are great starters. Flounder in... More

Not all of my review is bad. The decor in the restaurant is nice, and I guess the musty odor should be expected of an old house. The salad was simple and great actually. The recommended wine was good as well. My steak however, was overcooked. I only ate about a quarter of it. The flavor was good, but it... More

It is so nice to go to a restaurant & hear all your party talk. There are several rooms in this old house. We had over 2 hours in a room by ourselves. I enjoyed the escargot & we got the hearts of Palm salad. We had the fish special in parchment & it was excellent. Others had the duck... More

I waited a few days as I wanted to let the experience sink in rather than be rash but the longer I think about the experience, the more disapponted I am. My wife made reaervations for my birthday on Wednesday 8/6 at 7pm. We arrived at 6:55 and waited for several minutes before even seeing someone at the reservation desk... More

I love French food so I planned several French restaurants, on our recent vacation. The food and the service were both good. I had the Crawfish Bisque and we had salads. Main course was a seafood crepe with asparagus, shrimp, fish, white sauce - very tasty! Fiancé got the pork tenderloin with raspberry sauce, and green beans - enjoyable. My... More

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
