    Wife and I have been on 12-15 vacations and this was the BEST meal we’ve ever had on any of them. Couldn’t recommend them more to anyone local, or traveling through Baton Rouge. Couldn’t have been a better morning / brunch. Thank you SoLou team.

    It started out great at entry of the restaurant. Of course , it was restaurant week ;therefore more than the usual amount of customers were dining.And mind you it was evening…And my daughters’s first time dining.I had raved to her about the superb service I had experienced the week prior ….Sad to say the service missed the mark this dining experience …The Shrimp and grits were excellent.The best I’ve had this far…not too fond of the crawfish beignets.The steak was a hit tender and tasty …We didn’t get an opportunity to have all of my courses as we dined :hence the service wasn’t awful but it wasn’t up to par either …we experienced long wait times in between courses -without our server/waitress coming to attend or replenishing water, etc. There was good ambiance and atmosphere…the cuisine was delightful……….... But great service -is the icing on the cake …

    Had a reservation for 730 didn’t get seated until after 8 and it wasn’t even busy. The waiter kept calling me darling which was inappropriate especially since I was clearly with my boyfriend. We went for restaurant week and they ran out of the dessert and said we can get a different one for $5 each which was a little odd since it was supposed to be included in what we paid so don’t know why we had to pay extra when they ran out. Also they didn’t ask how I wanted my steak cooked and it was super rare, purple, and gummy but it was already cut with sauce on it so I couldn’t take it back and just had to barely eat the edges of it as that was the only edible part.

    It was a celebration for my 21st birthday! Although I can’t remember her name our Waitress was great. The food was amazing and the 3 for $30 course was very fulfilling for everyone. 100% recommended SoLou for any occasion.

    Sunday Brunch - ambiance was great and food was delicious. Reservation at 10:30, was seated early. Lipstick stain on glass but server immediately fixed the situation. Was guided through the menu with solid recommendations by the server. Beignets tasted too much like the oil that fried everything else. Shrimp and grits was incredible; shrimp were fresh, sauce well flavored and balanced. Alligator and grits was well cooked, and well seasoned, great flavor if not slightly heavy on the black pepper. Coffee was great, excellent juice selections for champagne bar, fresh fruit, and precious cotton candy treat before the check. Prices on check need adjusting to match menu; rounding up a penny on the check when advertised as —.99 can be a weights and measures issue….

    Amazing food. Really attractive restaurant. Service was great. Only annoyance was the absolute overcrowdedness at the door. You can't hardly enter or exit without asking people to move.

    I didn’t realize we would sit outside. It was a cold evening. Our server finally brought a heater for us. Unfortunately my chair seat was covered with a sticky substance. I didn’t realize it until I got up to use the restroom. We were on our way to wedding and hadn’t been to SoLou so tried the restaurant. Food was excellent but my dress was covered with sticky syrup. The server was not too concerned about it. Between sitting outside and needing to have my dress cleaned I think I will have to think twice about returning.

    We were not impressed with the food. It was heavy and greasy, the cauliflower app was good, but the chargrilled oysters were tiny. The crawfish beignets were so greasy and more like a fritter.. The charcuterie board was horrible, no toast points or crackers.. cocktails were wildly inconsistent, ordered an Old Fashioned three times, on each occasion the color was different and it tasted different… Not impressed, would recommend, would not return… expect that this restaurant will be closed within 12-18 months. Place was empty on a Thursday evening, and understandably so with food and drinks that poor…

    The last few times we’ve been here, I’ve got to admit, the food and service were not that good. We almost didn’t go back but this time they hit it out of the park!! Our server was excellent the food came fast, not a two hour wait like last time, and the food was superb!! We will go back and hope it’s going back to the way it was when they first opened! Used to be my favorite place to eat in Baton Rouge.

    Great food, a great server and the cotton candy at the end was a great bonus. The key is to use the cotton candy to scoop up the caramel and strawberry syrup on the plate. Might seem like a weird combination but it actually pairs well. Everything we ordered was delicious.

    My experience for my grandmother's 90th birthday celebration was great. The food was great. The server C was amazing and attentive but not disruptive. Solou is a beautiful, cultured restaurant. It was my second time there and even better. I can't wait to go back for brunch and mimosa =)

    We loved our experience at SoLou! The cauliflower appetizer, the crab dip, and the truffle fries were awesome. The frozen julep was yummy. The environment was beautiful as well. The only thing we didn’t like was the soft shell crab.
