    We saw that they had their 30th anniversary tower being served so we had to try it. It was amazing nice sampling of what they had to offer. Our server Julia did a incredible job of serving us along with the owners. Will definitely be back.

    Poor service and high prices make this place a bad choice if you consider value to be good quality food at a fair price and decent service. Check your receipts when using gift cards...the server cashed mine out and took the remaining balance, and only paid it back when I questioned if there was a balance remaining and asked for a receipt. It wasn't just a few bucks remaining either.

    Everything was great except we had a young hockey team next to us so it was noisier than usual at the restaurant. Normally the noise level is very acceptable.

    It was one of the most memorable dining experiences we have had. It was our anniversary and Malkit, the hostess, greeted us with a smile and ensured we had a comfortable table. Ashley, our server, really made us feel at home as if it was her own place. She helped us with the menu attentively answering our questions. She also ensured that the food came out hot and ready to eat! Ashley came by several times to make sure we were having a “Good Baton Rouge” experience. To cap off our experience the restaurant owner, Bardia Bafti, spent a lot of time with us and also surprised us with an anniversary dessert including a sparkler on top. We really understood at the end how dedicated Bardia and his staff are to make sure their customers are well taken care of to ensure they have the “Baton Rouge”experience. We will never forget this experience. Thank you so much Bardia for your mouth watering cuisine and newly created friendship. We will be back soon to Barrie’s “hidden jewel”.

    The steaks of my two dining companions were in their words ‘excellent’! I just had a couple of starters and found my shrimp dish disappointingly overdone and on the dry side. Would happily recommend this to any friend looking for steak though.

    My wife and I attended for Valentine's day, on a recommendation from an associate. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel comfortable. We were seated at a table for two with soft-seated chairs, the waitress was prompt and courteous. I enjoyed the Rickard's Red on tap. We both had the filet mignon with bernaise sauce, and although I seldom use this expression, it was "to die for". What a tasty piece of beef! The veggies were done just the way I like them. The main course left us with just enough room to split a creme broule for an absolutely perfect ending to a fine meal. I took the time to write this review, because we were that impressed. I have and will, recommend The Baton Rouge (Barrie) to anyone who wants a good steak dinner. William G.

    Our server, Taylor, was the best part of the night. She did a great job despite how busy it was. The table we had was horrible, but expected considering it was Valentine's Day (take that into consideration with this entire review). My steak came out over-cooked. They were happy to take it back and cook me a new one. So my partner and I ate at different times which was a little frustrating. My next steak came back charred (kind of like a Chicago style which I didn't ask for). The owner of the restaurant came to us and offered us a $50 gift card instead of taking anything off the bill which is just a clever tactic to have us come back and spend more money... needless to say we will not be going back, especially be cause the owner never came back to give us said gift card and we were in a hurry to get to the movie that we had bought tickets for. I had no intentions to track him down for it either. Moral of the story, I'm sure this is a great restaurant with great food on a day where it's not as busy. Obviously I expected mid-tier quality since I work in a restaurant and understand how busy it can get both in the back and front of house. However, this was just disappointing.

    Bâton Rouge Grillhouse & Bar - BarrieResponded on February 16, 2023Dear Chanel, I'd like to begin my sincere apology about your whole dining experience. Like you mentioned, we had an extremely busy evening on valentines however we would love to offer the best service and food always no matter how busy we are. in terms of the gift card, I called you and left you a voicemail with details and I would love to hear back from you if kindly you call me so I can follow up the matter with you. thank you for your kindness and look forward into hearing from you.

    The night started off very well drinks right away and were told about the menu and features. Ordered lobster stuffed mushroom and had some pieces of shell in the mushrooms, the manager came over to apologize which was nice offered a replacement but declined as i was thrown off. The entrees were great, took a while after enjoying dinner to receive the bill and was surprised to see the stuffed mushrooms were still on the bill just paid and left. Entrees were enjoyed by all in our party.

    Did not get the request we asked for and instead were put out in the middle of the dining room. And when we asked to change they told us that booths were for 4 people, but when I looked around 4 booths only had 2 people - don’t lie to me. Won’t be back. The only saving grace was the server who was knowledgeable, friendly and. efficient. My steak was ok but only a grade A, the stacked potato was not even a potatoe and probably had over a pound of cheese on it. Disappointed

    Bâton Rouge Grillhouse & Bar - BarrieResponded on January 1, 2023Hi there, I am really sorry to see that your request was not accomodated on New Year's eve. All our steak are grade AAA and I am sorry to hear it was not the quality you expeceted. I would love to take the oppurtunity and look into the details of your visit, so I can make it up to you. would you please email me at Barrie@batonrouge.ca with your info? thanks again and we look forward to correct things to your liking.

    Courteous and friendly staff, online reservation was super easy and they accommodated our son no problem. The food was absolutely amazing, fair value for the prices (we expected this type of price range with the quality of food they offer). Only negative was maybe the kids meal had way too many fries with the mini burgers (fries were so tasty he didn't want to eat the burger)! We loved it and will be back.
