This award winning restaurant is one of of Brisbane's oldest French restaurants (award winning too) and it's Located in tres magnificent Ascot, Baguette is a beauty for both meals and drinks, with a lounge bar, alfresco area and a more formal dining room all part of its make-up. This Brisbane icon has all your French and European fare faves, Baguette changes the menus frequently according to the season. Service is as impeccable and polished as the food, making this northside bistro a cherished gem

We ate here last night and the food was tasty. I ventured and had the snails and thoroughly loved them. I would have to agree with other reviews, the portion size of meat is not what I would expect when paying $40.

If you go and they put you at a table next to the wine racks/toilet entrance I would ask for a change as you are constantly disturbed by waiters reaching across to get wine.

The was cooked well hence my rating. I would recommend this restaurant.

This is a nice cosy venue. Good food, it was recommended to me for business lunch.
I would go back, but did find the service very slow. Its not cheap either.

Service is the best at this restaurant - staff are friendly and food is not a long wait away.
Cosy and sophisticated decor, a great setting for good conversations!
I had the fish of the day - groper which was tenderly cooked and quickly devoured!

Have been to Baguette a few times over the years but not for a few years now. The place is looking very stuck in the 80s and tired. It's clean and dimly lit but the furniture is overdue for a face lift.
Service was good but staff seemed in a fluster and very rushed the whole time.
Food was delicious although at an average of $40 for mains it ought to be.
Would love to go back once they reinfect some life and "joie de vivre"!

Sorry you did not like the decor however we employed top designers to completely re-do the dining room 4 years ago, at a cost of over $400,000. And we get lots of very positive feedback about Baguette's atmosphere.

We really enjoy this restaurant - consistently good food, great service and friendly staff. It was a very busy night but the staff managed well.
