We had an excellent meal with great service. We decided to share an appetiser and chose the boudin balls as we had not yet tried this local speciality. The portion size was generous - enough for two - and they were very tasty. We then...both had a fish dish - Louisianne and Pontchartrain respectively. Both were excellent and the portions were enormous. Anthony, our waiter, was very helpful assisting our choices. Highly recommended.More

Excellent seafood and even better service from Frank. Our eggplant Pontchartrain appetizer was late coming out and Frank took it off our bill. We told him that was not necessary but he insisted Next time in Baton Rouge we will definitely be back.

My husband & I really enjoy the food, but after we have waited an hour and a half to be seated, a fair amount of the pleasure eating here is gone. On Our last visit on a Friday night, we arrived at 5:45 pm assuming...we would beat the crowd- wrong- we put our name on a list and were told it would be an hour and a half wait. We waited in the bar with what seemed liked at least 50 other people. There are a few bar tables and a few bar stools, but mostly folks stand elbow to elbow jocking to get the bartenders attention for a drink. After 30 minutes we were able to sit on two bar stools and ordered dinner to be eaten at the bar. Sure enough, an hour and a half after our arrival, our name was called for a table. We had just finished a very crowded dinner at the bar counter. We really do enjoy the sensation salad & the the oysters Laginappe(baked oysters topped with crabmeat dressing), but not enough to fight the crowds.More

Great food and great service. Definitely try one of the specials. Sat a high top in the corner near bar so I could order right away. Good choice. Restaurant was crowded so ended up with a nice quiet corner. Food was EXCELLENT, very fresh and...created with a lot of care. My server was great too with explaining the menu and specials. Had the seared yellow fin tuna and grilled shrimp special.More

I always order the pecan fish. It is always moist in the center and a huge portion. I order the vegetables on the side and they are always perfectly cooked.

I had a piece of drum with some kind of crawfish sauce which was pretty amazing. I may not be the best judge of fish because I do not eat it much but the dish was delicious. I also shared a couple appetizers of crab...claws which everyone enjoyed. I definitely recommendMore

This restaurant is a little hard to find but worth effort. The food was terrific. Selections are limited for those who do not eat seafood.

Had to go see my LSU Tigers play Texas A&M in Death Valley and was told we had to visit Louisiana Lagniappe Restaurant while in Baton Rouge. Lagniappe is a Louisiana French word which means "small gift" and is usually unexpected. The place was packed...but not too noisy. We waited about 30 minutes for our table and hung out in the bar area just to make some new friends. By the time we got our table, we had three invites to tailgater parties the next day...really nice people. Our waiter (DeMarcus) was phenomenal and I hope I spelled his name correctly. When asked to make recommendations (which I do on a regular basis), he wasted no time in giving his opinion. His knowledge of the menu and preparation of each meal was spot on. Now to the food...I ordered the Tournedos which were char-grilled (to perfection) beef tenderloins with sautéed shrimp, jumbo lump crab and béarnaise sauce on top. Other members of our party had the Louisianne (blackened fish with crab meat) and Barbeque Shrimp and bottom line, everyone was pleased with their plates. The only thing that caught me by surprise was the potato that came with my meal and was basically half a baked potato with cheese melted on top. I am sure they are easy to prepare by really not that exciting. The atmosphere, food and DeMarcus were the true definition of Lagnaippe.More
