I dined with a friend at her suggestion; I said nothing to her afterward, but was disappointed with the meal.
Note: this Baton Rouge is located in the Eaton Centre. The Eaton Centre is a huge mall and tourist magnet. Think about it.
The ambiance is very pleasing. The restaurant looks "classy": low lighting, dark wood, red chairs, and tables that are set a decent space apart. The atmosphere gets full marks.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the food, both in taste and portion size. I ordered the soup of the day, a roasted chicken soup (my favorite on a cold winter night). Perhaps I misheard, but I do not recall the server saying that this chicken soup had a tomato base. I dislike tomato. Had my friend not suggested the restaurant, I would have politely returned the soup. Also of note, the soup was six dollars, dear for a bowl of chicken soup (although the soup was, by far, the cheapest of the appetizers, another reason that I ordered it).
For my main, I had the ten ounce portion of ribs. The taste was alright (not an exceptionally tasty sauce, but alright) and the meat was tender. But the portion was insufficient for an adult (my metric to imperial conversion is not good and I did not realize how small a 10 "ounce" portion of ribs is when the bones are included in the weight). I ordered a side of vegetables, which were crisp and tasted very good. But after spending thirty dollars on food (the ribs were twenty-one dollars), I was still hungry at the end of the meal.
Our server was very polite and pleasant, but the meal (not the fault of the server, but the management) was very rushed. My soup was at the table three minutes after I ordered it, and the mains came just as I was finishing my soup. At the prices we paid, we were entitled to a leisurely meal. We did not enjoy one.
With a cocktail, two beers and tip, the meal was approximately one hundred dollars, a considerable price to pay to go home hungry.
