A wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion or just to enjoy a night out. Ben and Matt know their stuff and are fantastic hosts. The rest of the staff are great too!

Easily the best food, service and ambience in Maryland. You would have to go to New York to rival it.

Food was delicious, but not extraordinary. Tables were in close proximity to each other lending to a very quiet conversation if your intentions were to keep the topic private.

This is simple the only restaurant on the Eastern Shore which consistently has the standards and performance of top places in major metropolitan areas. It's expensive but by and large menu imagination and delivery match the cost. It's always our first choice for a celebration.

What an outstanding experience! Service: top notch. Ambiance: just lovely. They clearly went above and beyond to cater to our wishes.
I particularly enjoyed the tuna tartar app, the watermelon-crab app, the cod entree and the cosmo cocktail.
I can't wait to find another special occasion to celebrate at Bas Rouge.

Impeccable service and elegant decor. Food was done by Michelin star guest chef Hirohisa Hayashi. Outstanding experience in a small town - rivals, if not better than equivalently priced or more expensive Michelin star meals in major metropolitan cities.

Great experience with Chef Hirohisa Hayashi. Every course was a treat with some very unique twists with the japanese flair. The service also did not disappoint and was a 10/10. Thank you to Chef and the team at Bas Rouge.

The chicken mousse "cigar" appetizer and the Ahi tuna were divine. Go for lunch to make it wallet-friendly. And be sure to end the meal with a cappuccino. The best I have ever. Plus the beautiful, intimate setting and attentive but no overbearing wait staff make it a meal to remember. So wonderful our small town has an A+ restaurant!

Overall excellent with one exception: I am a retired Executive Chef with decades of international experience. I have dined in many excellent restaurants and have never experienced being told that the chef doesn’t allow me to order my dessert after I have finished my entree. I understand when it is a dessert that requires a lengthy preparation time such as a soufflé but I did not perceive any of the desserts on offer required a lengthy preparation time! After enjoying two appetizers and an entree, I wanted to wait a while before dessert anyway.

Aside from this, it was simply outstanding. It was my friend’s birthday and the service staff could not have been more accommodating. My friend was thrilled.....Thank you!

Lunch on a rainy day in Easton. Bas Rouge is part of a street of upscale dining options. Stepping inside was like entering a French Bistro. Fun, colorful floor tiles set the scene for a lovely escape from the dreary weather. Menu had a lovely cauliflower soup that was a perfect antidote to the cold day. Delicious bread was served with individual butters sprinkled with sea salt. An extra offering of bread would have been nice. I was surprised the sea salt flakes weren't offered instead of the salt shaker on the table for the rest of the meal. Excellent burger, perfectly prepared was a great lunch option. Hand cut fries were served with it. Ketchup and burger sauce were both provided. Service was top notch.
