Date night with the wife. Fast service and the food was good. I had the lamb chops. They were very good. Cooked perfectly. The wife had the filet and it was great. The fried asparagus appetizer was excellent. Wine was a little pricey by the glass.

My husband and I had lunch here recently. I ordered the sensation salad and the caper chicken and was very pleased with both. My husband started off with the crab & brie soup. It was very thick and a bit crabby tasting, so much so that I could smell it across the table. For his entrée, my husband had the... More

The food and service are excellent here. We dined with a group of friends in the middle of the week. We had no wait and were seated promptly. Such a nice atmosphere here. The blueberry drop drink was very good. A different departure from a lemon drop. Not as sweet but an excellent martini. We dined on the crab and... More

We love this local gem. It's quiet and intimate, yet not as pricey as some similar places. It's locally owned and you can tell that they care. Fantastic food

We enjoyed our time with family here. The stuffed oysters were wonderful but we had to send back our martinis because they weren't chilled well and should have sent back the pork chips as they were not hot and underdone. For an expensive restaurant like this one should expect the best based on the reviews. However it was a busy... More

I'm writing a new review as FMB has expanded the restaurant and it's even more lovely than before. It now boasts a great bar area to gather and mingle before dinner. The ambiance is just cool and chic. FMB is in my top 5 Baton Rouge restaurants for lunch and dinner. This visit was a GNO to celebrate a birthday... More

If you are there for lunch you can't beat the Eggplant Camellia ($15.00) it is to die for! The prices are a little more than normal but, the food is well worth the price. If you're their for dinner their crab cakes are delicious. I love desserts, their bread pudding with it's butter rum sauce is just plain wonderful! It's... More

Last year we gave French Market Bistro due to terrible wine service problems. We went back to try again and found this an excellent choice. The service was excellent from wine to dessert. The waitress was very friendly and humorous which added to the evening. Each of the 6 of us enjoyed their meal. Excellent sea bass, large and tasty... More

This restaurant was recommended and when we called it was 8:30 and they were closing at 9. They said they could accommodate us if we could arrive by 8:40. We did and were warmly greeted. Menu had a nice selection. I ordered the lamp lollipops and when I asked for a sauce substitution, they were happy to comply. Dessert was... More

If you are looking for a place where you don't mind paying if you are getting great food and atmosphere then this is the place! The food from the appetizer to dessert was excellent. The price is on the higher end but so worth it. The restaurant was in a nice location and the service was great.
