While many other restaurants are inconsistent - good one time and not so great the next, this restaurant is consistently excellent. The service is top notch. They anticipate your needs, but not in an annoying way. Had dinner here, again, and my fried oyster appetizer and soft shells crab entree were wonderful. We always look forward to eating here.

Best martini I've had in years. This bartender's an ace. Food is good, slightly cramped quarters, service fine.

Steak Frites is so simple, so lovely, and so easy to do wrong! Le Petit Bistro has been doing it JUST RIGHT for years. Cozy little place, try to grab a seat at the bar.

Love the atmosphere. You need to make a reservation. Drinks great, food awesome. We were not rushed at all as a previous review complained. Cannot wait to go back!

Great dining this past Friday. We selected the special, asparagus soup - delicious, and calves liver - wonderful. I avoid ordering calves liver as many times it is too cooked. Le Petit Bistrot served a calves liver perfectly "rose", with crisp bacon, mashed potatoes. I needed more bread to clean my plate. We ordered a bottle of Cahors, the combination... More

This is a great restaurant. It has a typical bistro atmosphere - cosy and usually busy so if it is a quiet dinner place you are looking for then this may not be your spot. I have been dining at this place for a number of years and it always delivers. It is advisable to make a reservation since this... More

This was just bizarre... Our "dining experience" when our waitress curtly informed us that we could only order entrees and that we had an hour and thirty minutes to complete our meal. The hostess had failed to inform us of this when she sat us at our table. Yes, it was Valentines Day and we ad arrived 30 minutes late... More

Third or fourth time there and Le Petite Bistro is in my top 3 of all time. From the minute you squeeze in the door the professional staff makes you feel at home. The food is always good and most times great. The prices are very reasonable. Value, quality and perfect service...a fading commodity but not here! Be sure to... More
