Always Pleasant and Relaxing!

The comfortable decor is as soothing as some of their wonderful dishes. My family recently enjoyed the Veal Chop, special beef filet, and lamb. All were cooked to perfection. In spite of their being a full house, the atmosphere was enjoyable and their were groups celebrating the Holiday's in... read more

The Petite Paree is the Best restaurant in the Festus Area. It does Qualify as Fine Dining. You will always find the Locals eating there---and that speaks Volumes in itself. The food is Excellent and The Service is Always Great !!! Stop by for Dinner. You will be glad that you did. Don Johnson.

I had family visiting from Manhattan and we selected Petit Paree for dinner the week of Thanksgiving. They found the restaurant to be lovely with good food! We have been there before and were excited to return since the new owners have taken over. I had steak and my husband had Prime Rib both cooked perfectly. Love the ambiance and... More

I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. We both ordered steaks. They were both delicious and very tender. We both ordered the fresh veggies for one of our sides. I ordered the twice baked potato and my husband ordered the regular baked potato for our other side. We split a bottle of wine which was in the $20... More

While our first experience began with a great atmosphere and good service that all went away when the first food was served. Nothing was served above room temperature and the not one of the 6 orders was served as it was ordered. Most of the meat was undercooked and most of the sides were average to less than average tasting.... More

If you like atmosphere and charm this is the place for you. For many it is a place saved for special occasions. Patit Paree is known for steak and the new owners are doing a good job of continuing the tradition.

I have been going to the restaurant since 1976. We celebrate all our special family moments there and it is always a treat. The Tetrault Family had done nothing but improve our family favorite. Major kudos!

This place is a blast from the past. If you are not known in the community you may not feel comfortable here, I didn't. The food is old fashioned and its dark and quiet...like eating in your grandmas attic.

This restaurant has been a staple to Festus Main for many years. It is quiet and has a varied menu. Although the interior could really use a big update, the food is good and it offers a nicer atmosphere for business patrons, or those wishing to have something a little more special than a chain restaurant. Prices are a little... More

Years ago I lived in Festus so Petit has been around for a very long time. If we wanted to go somewhere really nice, dad would take us to Petit Paree. If you like quaint this is the perfect restaurant. Known for their steaks but they are so much more. Their fried chicken is the best you will ever have... More
