Description: Unpretentious, light, airy and fresh. Baguette Bar & Bistro is quintessentially Queensland. 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

I booked a table for a special occasion lunch on a sunday.I was told when i booked on saturday morning that I would be given a lovely table in the restaurant.We arrived to be told the restaurant was closed and that we would be seated in the bistro.The service was ordinary,with no cutlery provided for the second course, the ambience was ordinary and the seating was quite un comfortable.and what is going on with the table height??.Im not a tall person but I found the height of the table quite uncomfortable.having to lean forward and down to eat.!!!Looking around me everyone was the same.To top it off we had the obligatory stupid dessert phrase- "oh ladies couldnt you make it to dessert.Surely you could have shared a creme Brulee".Ridiculous.Dont you think by the time you are paying the bill you have decided on not having dessert- why not just say thanks ladies hope you enjoyed your meal.wont go there again.i think they are riding along on coattails of the glory of the previous owner.

Eating outside watching the world go by.Not to bad traffic on Sat morning at 9 am. Staff very helpful and friendly, especially Scott and Patricia. Great to speak French for practice.We shared plates of food and it was a great way to go, a little sample of everything.Cold platter was a little exxy ( $25) but crepe was superb. Coffee pleasant tasting , water glasses filled at regular intervals.
Just under $100 for 3 people for breakfast. Lovely for special occasions.

We visited just by chance and so glad we did!! The food was absolutely fantastic!! We had the entree of stuffed courgette flowers and mains of Duck and slow roasted venison. Fantastic flavour and perfectly cooked. Service was too class. Well worth a visit.

Baguette is Brisbane’s best French Restaurant

We went there for our Wedding Anniversary lunch.
We have been several times - not always on a special occasion but going there makes it special..
We shared the Seafood Platter (Plateau de fruits de mer) and it was absolutely fantastic.
Scott (who has been there for many years and remembers us) recommended a bottle of Sticks Sauvignon Blanc (Yarra Valley VIC) which went very well with the seafood. We finished with the Soufflé du jour which really did melt in the mouth.

A magnificent lunch.

The food was ok. The service was below average. The wait time was appalling ! I would not go there again or recommend to anyone.
