Baton Rouge Restaurant
The first Toronto sighting of a five-restaurant chain out of Montreal, this self-styled "upscale bar and grill" features some of the best Baby Back Ribs with French Fries in the city - not to mention the juicy steaks for those with larger appetites. Located in the Eaton Centre with an entrance on Yonge, this restaurant caters to the passing crowd and to those looking for a special place to spend an evening. Aside from the Baby Back Ribs, the menu includes Canadian Prime Beef, and appetizers such as Louisiana Spinach Dip.
Four of us went there for New Years Eve Dinner and we regret every second of it!
First off we split the bills in two.
Two of us had The Amerillo Chicken and then the Lobster Pasta. The other Two had the Primaverra and the Ribs. Out of those four dishes... Only the Ribs were half decent.
The Chicken was dry and tasteless, The Lobster in the Past was lacking.. I think there were only 3 pieces of it in there and the taste was worse then hospital food. The same went for the Primaverra dish the other couple ate.
Furthermore, they never mentioned how much the special was (lobster pasta) which came out to $29 as we saw on our bill. I didn't even eat 1/4 of it!!!!
We paid our bill and mentioned the food was horrible and we left.
The next day when checking our online banking both of us parties of two noticed an odd charge of $45. Upon doing some research by calling the restaurant and finally being able to talk to a manager, we were informed that we were charged for a Pepper Mill!!! A Pepper Mill??? Neither of us purchased a Pepper Mill, nor do either of us know anything about a Pepper Mill!!! My advice to anyone wanting to eat here... DON'T DO IT!!! And if you do... CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD ONLINE STATEMENT AFTER!!!!
The service and food were equally #1.
My wife and I arrived at the restaurant and it was very busy (like we were previously warned). The wait was 20-30 minutes but we were sat in 15 minutes. The overall attitudes from the host to the servers and the managers who check in on us was prompt, polite and professinal. The food was hot and plentiful. The ribs were one of the best that I've ever tasted and the meat fell right off the bone. The steak was grilled exectley as I requested, and was very juicy. My oly reret is that I didnt have enough room for dessert. Keep up the great work.
This place was amazing! It was a bit crowded, so come here early if you don't want to wait. The food was good. The waiters and waitresses were very polite and said "Thank You" more times in one meal than any other restaurant I've ever been to. It is a bit pricey, but the food is delicious.
My husband and I were greatly disappointed in the cuisine at the Baton Rouge restaurant. The wait staff was very oloof, yet attentive. We ordered a chicken sandwich and a hamburger. While these sandwiches were the least pricey of the meals on the menu, we did expect the food to be edible. The chicken was dry. The bun was stale. The fries were lukewarm and rubbery. The hamburger was dry and overcooked. We were seated close to a wait station and we noticed that just about all the plates that were cleared from other tables had food left on them and was being tossed out.
We will not be returning to this restaurant next year when we return for the International Bowl.
The service was average considering we had 4 different servers. Our waiter never introduced himself or announced the specials. My husband didn't care for his prime rib, it came with a side order of salad but no vegetables came with the prime rib and potatoes. I've been to lots of restaurants and that was a first. I also like it when restaurants give you complentary bread, it adds a touch of class and this resaurant didn't offer any. My seafood linguini was a genourous portion and tasted great. Although my husband's chocolate mouuse was not light and fluffy but watery. The atomosphere was dark and the music was not appropriate for the setting.
After visiting City Grill, my wife and I were very disappointed with the food in Toronto and were beginning to dread being here for four more days. However, after a visit to Baton Rouge, our opinion of Toronto cuisine completely changed. A local told us how great the chicken tenders were and boy was she right! Great ambiance and food, with pretty decent service thrown in.
It depends on the location of baton rouge. Busy ones you will get bad quality food, slow ones you will recieve top of the line product. I recomend everyone to go to North York baton rouge location at 5000 yonge, it's medium-quiet there, food always stays on the top, and my expirience in there is much grater that in any other of them.
We ordered the filet and prime rib and both were cooked the way we liked it. The manager even came to our table to make sure it was cooked the way we wanted. They recommend grilling the prime rib and getting a peppercorn sauce on the side, you should definitely go for this. The peppercorn sauce is soooo good. For our sides we had the mashed potatoes which were very tasty even on their own and the caesar salad was also good, it wasn't the common dressing that you can get at any restaurant . The restaurants ambiance was a little louder than I would have expected but overall it was an enjoyable meal. The food was excellent, the service was good, and the atmosphere was okay. We are definitely going to go back again and order the chicken strips, we have heard lots of good things about them and when I saw them they looked very good. For dessert we had cheesecake and chocolate mousse, the cheesecake was good but nothing special about it but the mousse was very delicious, it was the right amount of sweet and very creamy and smooth. So if you like mousse you will definitely like theirs.
