Good fish special

Went with family and had a nice dinner. The salads with the house dressing were good and we had a special which was fish crusted with pretzels. The fish was perfectly cooked and the accompanying sauce was very good.

Good atmosphere and good food. It's a little pricey, but a good quiet place. The bar is nice and the service is great. I love the croutons also.

Just had fabulous filet mignon here; verrry rare yet slightly charred outside snd oh so tender and tasty! My husband's strip was cooked to perfection at medium well. The apple/nut/caramel cake was wonderful - member of the clean plate club there. New owners are getting it right!

This is a very nice place to take a date or spend your anniversary. Lots of higher end cuisine to choose from like mussels and fish. Delicious steaks as well.

The filet minion will melt in your mouth, relaxing romantic atmosphere , many go for special occasions, but locals enjoy the daily specials as well. This restaurant has been a fixture on Main Street for many years .

Great dining experience last night. We liked the ambiance, food and service. This is not a chain restaurant that is duplicated in every city in the U.S. Petit Paree has ambiance and character—we love the timeworn look and it fits the French bistro menu (and escargot is on the menu). The special of the evening was a filet on a... More

My husband and I decided to pay Petit Paree a visit on one of our date nights. I hadn't eaten here since the 1980's and remembered it to be good. Our service was top notch, the decor was romantic and nostalgic and the food was FABULOUS! Yes, it's pricey but worth every penny. We don't mind spending $ for a... More

The Petit Paree is one of the finest restaurants in the area; used to be in my family for over 50 years. Carla McGraw is my cousin so when arriving in Festus would head directly to Petit.Also has a great bar (with fun bar servers,like Carrie). The food is fantastic and the atmosphere divine. Can't wait to get there again... More

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.
