If you are there for lunch you can't beat the Eggplant Camellia ($15.00) it is to die for! The prices are a little more than normal but, the food is well worth the price. If you're their for dinner their crab cakes are delicious. I love desserts, their bread pudding with it's butter rum sauce is just plain wonderful! It's... More

Last year we gave French Market Bistro due to terrible wine service problems. We went back to try again and found this an excellent choice. The service was excellent from wine to dessert. The waitress was very friendly and humorous which added to the evening. Each of the 6 of us enjoyed their meal. Excellent sea bass, large and tasty... More

This restaurant was recommended and when we called it was 8:30 and they were closing at 9. They said they could accommodate us if we could arrive by 8:40. We did and were warmly greeted. Menu had a nice selection. I ordered the lamp lollipops and when I asked for a sauce substitution, they were happy to comply. Dessert was... More

If you are looking for a place where you don't mind paying if you are getting great food and atmosphere then this is the place! The food from the appetizer to dessert was excellent. The price is on the higher end but so worth it. The restaurant was in a nice location and the service was great.

Just when we thought that we found our favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge, here comes the French Market Bistro located on Highland Road and I-10. It is owned by Justin McDonald, who also co-owns Mansurs on the Boulevard. It is a favorite haunt of the members of the Country Club of Louisiana with its casual French atmosphere and friendly staff.... More

The blue cheese was wonderful and they put plenty on it. We split the Louisiana Lustre it was delicious we got a... More

My wife and I met with our financial adviser for lunch and were pleased with the food. For an appetizer we had the "Crab Cakes", which were substandard, very thin with so-so flavor. We are crab cake lovers and are always looking for the best. I would recommend people pass on this appetizer. I had the "Crab Cannelloni" while my... More

Everything looked so delicious and it was hard to make up my mind when we lunched here. My husband enjoyed his bacon cheeseburger, and I relished the brie and crabmeat soup (super yum) and the sensation salad, which includes toasted almonds and Romano Vinagrette. I chose to have grilled salmon on top, which was delicious . Others in our party... More

Several couples and singles attended dinner on a weekday evening. Staff was attentive. I had the trout special over grits with scallops and pea pods on the side; nicely presented on my plate. Cheesecake with strawberries was fine. Enjoyed the meal. Others had good feedback. Bright and lively atmosphere. I would return for another meal.
