Louisiana Restaurant in Baltimore
I've eaten twice here, though not recently (that probably says something). My only specific food comments that I remember was that the crab bisque was outstanding and the foie gras not. But I do remember that the restaurant was very loud, particularly on the second floor where the tables are placed rather close together; the first time I had dinner here, the adjacent table was so loud my wife and I could not enjoy our food.
i like both the service and atmosphere at lousiana (tho i agree it does get quite noisy in there during peak service hours, particularly -- as asun noted -- on the second floor).
however, every time i eat there i leave feeling just the slightest bit disappointed. the food never quite lives up to expectations -- it's good, but not *fantastically* good, which i expect for the prices louisiana charges,particularly on chef's daily specials.
i would suggest charleston as a better alternative. impeccable service, wonderful food, relaxed and quiet atmosphere.
