We booked the reservation through TripAdvisor but they had no idea we were coming, so that was disappointing when the 8 of us showed up. The presentation of the entrees were great, but the taste overall was either not seasoned well enough OR overly salty. The chef did come out at the end of the evening for meet-and-greet which was...

We did the 45 E gourmand menu with many courses and everything was wonderful. Service was excellent for the style of the restaurant which is small and busy. Wine selection was... More

Food was overpriced for what it was. This was probably our most expensive dinner for the entire week we were there & was our least favourite too. Restaurant feels very dated too.

Le petite Bordelais is a lovely restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. You'll feel very comfortable inside and the decoration serves the purpose. The prices are just about right and the food is quite tasty. If you mind good food that is cooked to perfection then this is your place as they do try to please the customer. I recommend the...

Nice place, unpretentious but clearly trying to create a pleasant dining experience. Service was good and the food was excellent. Wine list not that extensive but solid affordable choices. The chef came out to chat with us at the end, always a nice touch with out of town visitors.
