An unbelievable secret in an out of the way place. On the Main Street of an 19 th century factory town (plate glass-twin city to Crystal City). It is a traditional French style restaurant in an unlikely Midwestern town.

My husband and I went for an early dinner on a Saturday. There was only one more couple at the time. We had two of the specials for that day: grilled salmon in a creamy pesto sauce and bone-in rib-eye. Everything was cooked the way we wanted it and it was simply delicious. The sides (garlic mashed potatoes and green... More

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
