What a nice place to dine on a regular basis, or just come off I-55, and go to Main Street, Festus! The staff is most professional, and Chris does a wonderful job as a professional server, and Dana is a very capable manager of the lounge! At $ 6.50 for a nice glass of vino, how can you go wrong?...

This restaurant is quaint and excellent. I recently visited with my husband and mother and all three of us had a delicious meal. The service was excellent and the steak was perfectly cooked! Their salad is also very good. I will go back again for sure.

They need to focus more on food instead of decor. The food was outrageously expensive and just plain awful. Never will go back.

A friend picked this place for her wedding dinner. Guests coughed up over $30 to get a small plate with smaller food portions. OK, maybe it was supposed to be the ambiance, which was dark with no special decor. The lights looked as if they came from Walmart. We came in the back, which had a nice little garden entryway,...

I have been all over St. Louis trying filet and as of yet, no place has exceeded the quality of petit paree. Some are as good, but not many. Our favorite waitress is Chris although they are all very good and super nice. As far as the price goes, where else can you go and have a nice dinner at... More

My family has been coming here for special occasions for years. We love the filet mignon with a twice baked potato and a salad with house dressing. The house dressing has a zing to it, but it is really good. The croutons they bring for you to munch on are addictive; try not to fill up on them! They also... More

Petit Paree has been in the same location, with the same decor, for ages. This is both a testament to its staying power, and a possible notice the place could use a little spiffing up. When the older set in our family want to treat us to a "night out", this is our venue. Food is great, service prompt &... More
