The Gregory at The Watermark Hotel is the premier destination for modern food & wine in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Located off the lobby of the hotel, in the former Bank of Louisiana, our restaurant is centered between an open kitchen and a full bar surrounded by murals painted by the artists of who the restaurant is named after, Angela Gregory. Chefs Justin Lambert and Jace Schexanydre design menus that utilize fresh and local produce and available organic proteins that offer twists on Southern classic in a modern farm-to- table menu. As a Louisiana-native, Justin brings an influence of Southern cooking styles employing our wood-stone oven, Spanish Josper oven and cast-iron grill to elevate flavors and create one of a kind dishes in the downtown Baton Rouge area.

    I’m a hotel guest so just wanted to eat and get up to my room…which this is perfect for. I don’t know that I would make a special trip here for the restaurant. The bar is lovely. The food was good. Not great— but good. I was one of three tables on a Friday night so we each had our own server. The bar served fresh cocktails with fresh juices. Delish.

    It was Chrismas evening, but even so, an up-scale hotel should ensure the restaurant is adequately staffed. Maybe the restaurant is a concession, yet they should also strive to offer guests to best experience at any time. Waitperson was untrained, the kitchen was a disaster, and the management was fourth-rate at best. After waiting almost 45 minutes for a cold pate platter, we were told it had been sold through and unavailable; how, upon ordering or the waitperson keying in a ticket no one knew immediately indeed shows a lack of professionalism. After I asked, the manager on duty did comp us a round of drinks. His original offer was another appetizer, but our dinner orders were in, or so we hoped. Starving, I asked for bread service and was told we would need to pay, no problem, but what was supposed to be crostini was poorly warmed PO-boy bread; let's at least call things what they are, no need to embellish or make a culinary faux-pas to make something seem "fancy." When starter salads and soup finally arrived, we were pleased, but the gumbo....although tasty, was not authentic; it would have been better using a bottled roux by Savoie. About four minutes into our starters, the mains arrived - abysmal timing and a flustered server and manager; we conceded to just letting them sit on the table. My sister had the redfish, MISTAKE, overcooked and cold, bland as cardboard, simply inedible. My husband had the pasta with shrimp, the smallest shrimp in Louisiana (that isn't called gumbo shrimp), and a sauce straight out of a jar, which was disgusting. I had the pork chop, it was properly cooked. On a good note, the drinks are great; sit at the bar and have a drink in this lovely room. The burgers coming out looked good, but the people attempting to eat them did not look overjoyed. After the bar, many other places around downtown serve fantastic food. If we go out again on a holiday, we won't try something new, we will stick with the tried and true.

    Our waitress was super friendly and did an incredible job. We left saying the best thing about that was the bottomless mimosas even though we each had 2. The food was all cold and we had one of the first seatings at 11:30 so no excuse. The gumbo would have been better if it had not just tasted like a dark roux (really had no spices in it). Husband is a duck eater so was happy to have on the menu but again it was cold. The ham was filled with fat (definitely not honey baked ham). We chose The Gregory because we new the owner and figured it would be up to par. Its unfortunate but we will not be back for any buffet service .

It took a while to be seated but we didn't realize the dining room reopened at 5 and our reservation was for 5. So that was on us! The pricing for the meal and experience was not bad at all!!!!

    Reservation for 5, only 1 other table seated. Service was e trembly slow. 2 different occasions had to ask manager to get server or take order. Drinks slow on getting to the table. 1:45 before getting entree which was burned. Worst food experience in Baton Rouge in a long time.

    Host was nowhere to be found when we arrived. Hotel manager had to go track him down (we were not the only customers this was required for). They had our reservation on file, but seemed to have forgotten to actually hold a table for us. Once seated, the server was great and very attentive. The food was good but a bit overpriced for what it was and took a long time to come out. The kitchen was out of multiple appetizers. Overall experience was ok, but wouldn't come back.

    The food was good enough but not nearly as good tasting or well made as the menu would make you think and it was certainly overpriced for what we got. It was like they had all the right ingredients but someone in the back didn't really know how to assemble them or cook them all that well. My duck was overcooked, and the oysters and pork belly were kind of tasteless and strangely assembled. The mushrooms and peppers were okay but could have easily been better. The mushrooms were very tasty but sparse and chopped up small and sprinkled on top. Our servers were all very sweet but flaky and obviously young and new. Also, something you would be fine with if the price point wasn't so high. Overall, it didn't ruin our evening but it was nothing special. I won't be going back unless I hear they have improved a lot.

    My wife and I were going to a Sunday night show at Manship Theater, so we thought we'd try The Gregory for dinner after having enjoyed a light snack and drinks while seated at the bar a week earlier. So I booked a table for 90 minutes prior to the show, figuring we'd have ample time to eat and walk the very short distance to the venue. I figured wrong. Or more correctly, I estimated the required time under normal circumstances. But if "normal" is being seated at a table at 5:57 p.m. and then waiting for a server to return after bringing water and a drink menu, then having to bail to the bar at 6:32 p.m. after sensing the futility of expecting him to ever return, then I guess I'm just too demanding a customer. Even the manager on duty, after stopping by the table to reassure us of the AWOL waiter's imminent return, was unable to muster the guy from whatever was requiring his undivided attention. To the manager's credit, he at least took the time to apologize to us and comp whatever food and drink we would have in the abbreviated time we had left sitting at the bar. Lastly, I don't typically like to complain about food if it was served to me comped, but we ended up just ordering the same flatbread plates we had enjoyed the week before. They were totally different this time, and not in a good way. It was as though they were prepared in a completely different kitchen. The "Seersucker" was notable for its totally changed - and pretty radically so - ingredient portioning (what happened to the caramelized red onions that were so good last time?!), as well as the unpleasantly overcooked mountain of arugula on top that had all the taste appeal of the hot, stringy boiled spinach served in a junior high cafeteria. At least the bartender was courteous and attentive. I put a $10 on the bar for his troubles and we left, resolute that it's the last time I'll ever attempt to dine at The Gregory. Such a waste of a beautiful space.

    The drinks were great. Had two cocktails. Both were excellent. The appetizer, Crawfish Cake, was excellent. Would order again. Entrees were so-so. I had the duck. For some reason, the duck came with a boatload of peppers and maybe 6 or 7 tator tots. The ratio was really off. The pieces of the duck were rather small too. I left a bit hungry. I would not order this again or recommend it. One of the pieces of duck had quite a bit of fat on it. The other entree ordered was the seersucker pizza. That was tasty. Would recommend that. We also had the bread pudding dessert with ice cream on top. That was delicious. Order that again too. The vibe of the restaurant was nice. The only thing bad was my entree. I should have ordered the chicken. It sounded delicious. Next time I will.

    Our reservation for brunch was for 12:30 and they were closing at 1 pm. Kind of early to close for brunch on a Sunday. But there was another event we were told. Staff was great, friendly and nonstop service. They have a small menu for brunch. Then on top of that they didn’t have some of the items we wanted. Omelet was good. Waffles were good, bacon was good. Blt was good. Potatoes not great. I would try it again but next time at night.

    The food was very good. The restaurant is open to the bar and with it being an LSU football weekend the bar was very busy, the noise carried over to the dinning area. Very loud. On a non football weekend it would be a great place to dine.

    When we arrived we waited 5 mins, it wasn't busy but no host was there to seat us. The gumbo had no meat in it. The hamburger I ate had a very stiff bun, I just ate the meat after. The vege ravioli was in a watery soup, like miso but it was just odd. It was just really awkward dinner.

    It was our 31st wedding anniversary, and everything was just perfect! Logan made our anniversary so special!! The flounder was the fish de jour, and I am really not a fish eater. I was blown away. The presentation was on a bed of spinach with fingerling potatoes , charred broccolini , and sauteed locally grown mushrooms in a habanero honey sauce. It was a huge surprise. My husband kept raving, and he is a fish eater. No fishy taste at all and very flakey. Logan surprised us with champagne with berries and the most wonderful sea salted caramel cheesecake, along with a decadent chocolate cake. We literally rolled up to our room very satisfied. The Gregory itself needs some sort of separations for privacy like planters with green plants or more booths. The lighting needs to be lowered. Frankly it appears like a lunchroom rather than a fine dining restaurant, which it is. All and all, we loved it! Just work on the ambience. We also loved the entertainment, a guitar and harmonica playing singer.

    Great ambiance! Friendly wait staff. The food was okay. I didn’t really care for the chicken that came with the waffles. It was more like bagged breaded chicken tenders that they fried. My friend had the brunch burger and it was pretty good. The bun was soft and sweet. We shared a bread pudding dessert. It could’ve been sweeter. The check is brought out in books which I thought was a cute gesture. Overall it’s a nice spot. I’d probably try something different if I return.
