“Baton Rouge's new Galatoire's”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

After Katrina, Galatoire's opened its Bistro in Baton Rouge even before reopening its namesake on Bourbon Street. The location was not optimal, and it closed. Recently reopened in a new location and new building near Acme's Oyster House on Perkins Rd in Baton Rouge, it is larger than the original. Like the original it has the same style tile floor surrounded by large mirrors, as in New Orleans, except an even larger room. Unfortunately, this makes the noise level close to intolerable. Nevertheless, the food source remains the same for both restaurants and this is excellent. The shrimp remoulade are not to be beat, and the crabmeat maison is also superb. Trout amadine is also very good, as is the bread pudding. A 3 course lunch can be had for $19.05, the date for the opening of the New Orleans establishment.

“Too greedy too busy”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Reputation? I'm speechless. The staff even said it was a quiet night, well if so extend the kitchen get realistic with your menu planning, reduce the number of tables, and get a few more staff and work on the arrogance of a particular young lady behind the
bar. oh and perhaps a wee bit more training on the iPad table planer

would help. In summary for me this is yet another restaurant that preys on good food seekers and fail to back up the reputation!!!

Expected more from a well-known and reviewed restaurant. With reservations, we were seated at an unset table, offered a wine that was a different vintage from what we ordered. The specials were well done, but a dish ordered from the regular menu was disappointing (as in frozen food dinner-like disappointing). The wait staff was not particularly welcoming. We were polite and left a reasonable tip, but wouldn't go there again. Why would we, with Arnaud's right around the corner!

“A treat!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

When you had it with Jambalaya and Gumbo, and want to go have quality meal look no further than to Galatoire's. Here the food and the service is of the outmost ambition. Tasteful, stylish and welcoming sums up this place. We had Oyster Rockefeller, lovely but filling so be careful (you might find the main course hard to finish). Don’t forget to order the potato soufflé; the shape is amazing!
For main course we had trout and Crab Yvonne. Very good. Ralph was our waiter, and a very good one too! Will be back at our earliest convenience.
