We read the trip advisor reviews of Le Petit Bordelaise and expected more than we found. The food was good but orders were served inverted so we spent time passing plates back and forth. All in all, it was a pleasant evening but not exceptional, especially for Paris. The menu was limited and none of us were hungry enough to... More

We happened to be in Paris at the same time as our good friends so I made reservations at this cute bistro. The good was excellent and fairly reasonable for Paris. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and others really enjoyed the lamb and veal. Similar to most restaurants in Paris the service was good but less attentive then we... More

The Front Desk agent at our hotel had recommended we try this place for lunch. What a pleasant surprise! We had an amazing meal, for lunch my wife ordered the Turbot and I had the Veal. Both entrees were filled with wonderful flavor and the proteins literally melted in your mouth. Our server was excellent, unfortunately I know just enough... More

We went to this restaurant six years ago for my husband's 60th birthday and loved it. Went again and thought it was OK. The food was very good, but not spectacular and not worth the price. Also, the waiters were cold and indifferent. The chef came out to deliver the food and was friendly but the waiter - while not... More

Our first time in Paris for our wedding anniversary and this meal did not disappoint. Food was beautiful, owner/chef came and spoke to us several times, recommended wine and was very pleasant. A bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. One of the best meals we've ever had. A perfect introduction to French cuisine.

My family and I went here on our last night in Paris. We couldn't have picked a better place! Our sons and I picked the tasting menu (mine and the older two with wine pairing, while the teenager had his without wine). My husband ordered directly from the menu. We were greeted by the chef, who explained that the menu... More

We was here in June 2010, I couldn't choose an older date with the app. The food here was delicious and the crew was so nice. I told them to tell the chef that the food was great after we finished and he came out and talked to us :) Even after 4 yrs I still remember my visit there.

We loved le Petit Bordelaise so much during our last Paris vacation that we had to visit again. We were not disappointed. The chef is truly gifted and creates delicious innovative meals. The waiters are very professional and they take excellent care of the guests while remaining in the background. We had our teenage granddaughters with us and they loved... More

I brought my parents tot his restaurant for their 40th anniversary and it was every bit as special as I hoped. We ordered the 5 course degustation with matching wines - we actually received 7 plate including small appetiser of beef terrine and some tasty tiny cakes at the end. The service was impeccable and the chef came to talk... More
