Bâton Rouge Steakhouse & Bar - Halifax
Great place for a dinner date. Service was second to none, and the food was excellent! First time ever here, looking forward to going back.
We always have a great night at baton rouge. The food was awesome and the service is great.
Great atmosphere. Our server was great and we really enjoyed our evening.
My only complaint was the wait for our reserved table. We had to wait 15 mins past the time to be seated.
It is the best restaurant you could ever vist, food is the best, hospitality is something like you will never see again. I love it, my wife to be loved it so much i had to go back and i proposed to her there. She said yes.
Food was less than mediocre. Lobster stuffed mushrooms was mostly cheese and breadcrumbs with hardly any lobster. Calamari wasn’t crisp at all, and the batter was white. The picture in the menu showed a heaping plate of golden fried calamari.
The sesame tuna was a thin piece of tuna with absolutely no sear to it what so ever, it seemed like it was baked without any pink to it. The salad didn’t have the tomatoes it was supposed to as well. My wife’s chicken breast was charred, and my daughters chicken fingers were nothing but slimy moist batter. Very disappointed in the food but the waitress and service was great.
We are from out of town and I booked a reservation days in advance and was looking forward to trying Bâton Rouge.
One of our favorite restaurants since 2013. Highly recommend! Great menu, competitive pricing, attentive service with a smile.
Lunch steak-frites that comes down to $20 per person(one steak 7oz and one side) and salmon salad is my absolute tradition. Salmon is cooked medium which I love; so beware well-done lovers, or ask it to be cooked thoroughly. Absolutely wonderful staff and tasty food. Well-seasoned well-oiled.
We had booked a reservation for our 10 year anniversary. The reservation was for 8 but we arrived early at 740 and the hostess had said it would only be a few seconds that they where getting the table ready so 8 o’clock rolled around our actual appointment time and my husband asked if we were going to get in anytime soon as she had told us it would only be a few seconds wait at 740 and she had mentioned their had bin “hik up” and we should be getting in shortly and apologized for the wait. We got to our table at 810. The waitress apologized for the wait. The food and drinks were good reasonably priced. Drinks took a while to come but the waitress was very apologetic and food the food came in a timely matter. Mind you when we went it was New Year’s Eve so I understand the busy aspect of our experience I just was very displeased with the hostess and how she handled it.
Would not recommend on New Year's Eve. Far too noisy and service stretched way too thin. Long waits, parts of orders forgotten (side of garlic mashed, side of mushrooms). Wrong side brought (regular fries instead of sweet potato fries). Had to wait a long time for beer I ordered. Wait staff was apologetic - looks like it was management's fault for not having enough staff on.
Great service and great food. What more could you ask for.
Everything was fantastic! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Jordann made sure we had everything we needed and was an absolute delight. Thanks for a great dinner experience to celebrate New Years!
Taking our adult children out for a nice break.
Service was good and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. Disappointed with the lobster poutine, no taste, it was mostly meat from the legs. Shareable appetizers weren’t very shareable.
Food was good but tempreture could easily be hotter.
The food was not as good as the last time we were there a few years ago. Real shame as we were looking forward to this night out.
Super! It was great food! I would highly recommended!
The manager called us the day of to say we were double booked and would not be able to get our reservation of 10 people in for our reservation time. The reservation was made 2 weeks ago and she said she only seen it the night before our supper reservation. She would onky be able to let us know 2 hours before our reservation time if we would be able to eat there or not. We were not thrilled with this as we travelled from a different province for a get together and it was impossible to find another place to book for 10 people on short notice with Christmas parties happening everywhere. In the end, we were able to get in but with very little notice but all worked out well. We all had good meals and a good time.
Oysters Rockefeller were the best I have ever had. The rib steak was perfectly cooked and tasted great. The Jam'son drink is awesome and should be put back on the core menu. Staff were extremely helpful and courteous.
Although a tad on the pricey side, Baton Rouge always delivers great food, and friendly staff. My only real complaint for the evening was the live performer was dialed up to a 9 for no real reason -- a bit quieter and they may have even been enjoyable. The Rouge Sangria's did not seem to sit well with our party, so I would advise caution there, however all in all a good visit.
Everyone had a good evening and enjoyed their meals! And our server was very nice! I'm sure we will be back again!
Excellent meal, a little noisy as there was a Christmas party close to our table. We will recommend to others and we will be back.
Christmas decorations very well done. Good service
I love the ambience of Baton Rouge. It's a great spot to show off Halifax's historic setting to out of towners. We went 3 weeks before Christmas and the place was decorated for that. I had just been there the week before and knew we'd be back with a larger group. The waiter remembered me. He was very attentive and personable. The manager helped us purchase 10 gift cards for the staff. Great lunch setting. Thank you!
At Batin rouge the food is always good I made the reservation well in advance hoping to get a good table for my husband and I since it was our date night that we seldom never get to go on . We were seated right away however at the table at the bottom of the stairs were several people passed by or stood beside out table waiting to go up or down. Service was great but felt rushed we placed our order an it was back out in less then 10 minutes. Food was delicious but after we finished we realized they forgot the coleslaw . I just felt the whole experience was rushed as we were in and out in less then an hour
Everyone enjoyed their meal! There were seven of us at a round table, which worked out great as we were able to talk to each other better than if we had been at a long table.
And thank you for the birthday cookie for the birthday boy! Not many places do that anymore so it was much appreciated!
Excellent service and the lobster poutine was a hit at the table!
A new go-to place added to our downtown Halifax list. Great food. Great service. Reasonable prices.
Best steak I have had in a long time.Perfectly cooked.Will be back as Arnold says.😎🍷
The food was very good as usual, but there was a table of about 20 men beside us and we could barely hear each other talk. That was disappointing to have to sit there over dinner and have to yell at each other to hear what people were saying.
Two comments about the food:
the French Onion soup was really too salted
the Ribs were almost tasteless. I am used to go to BR in Montreal and the BBQ sauce is much more flavorful than the one in Halifax.
Always good food and good service, my go to for a nice steak without being costly.
The reason for the 4 stars is mainly around timing. We ordered mains and apps. Apps came very fast and were great. The mains seemed to take a very long time to follow. About 45 minutes after we originally ordered. Our only guess was that one or more of the meals must have been prepare incorrectly or omitted thy e first time as a couple of the plates presented seem to have sat under the heat lamp so some time. In the end we ended up hurrying through the main course to get to the event at the Scotiabank arena. This is additionally concerning the restaurant was basically empty and the other two tables received their orders within 10 minutes of ordering.
Great food and service.
Amazing food at an amazing price. Their Friday Rib special puts ribs anywhere else in the city to shame
Normalement, le baton rouge etait notre destinations souper lors de nos visites à Halifax. Cette fois-ci la nouriture n'etait vraiment pas à la hauteur qualité/prix. Notre prochaine visite à Halifax nous allons certainement essayer un autre restaurant pusique le baton rouge ne semble plus être ce qu'il était dans le passé ( portion et qualité de la nouriture). À noté, notre serveuse Sophie était super gentille et bilingue!
Front desk accommodated our request for a quiet as possible spot but was still a bit noisy.
We went on Friday during the Ribs and Fries for $10 special. Glad we had reservations, the place was packed with a long line to get in. Food was outstanding and we never waited for service or food delivery. Wonderful experience and will return again.
First time I have been to a Baton Rouge, very nice atmosphere but what made the dinner a hit, was the great service we received, All staff were very professional and took the time to visit with us, talk and help with our questions since we were from out of town.
