We dine here whenever we visit Olympia because it's always outstanding. We began by sharing the wild morel appetizer--excellent. My maple lacquered duck breast tasted exceptionally fine and the shaved Brussels sprouts made a delicious accompaniment. My husband's lobster tarte also was delicious. But the "tarte's" appearance surprised us-a huge puff pastry commanding the top of a thick lobster "porridge."... More

Having honeymooned in the south of France two years ago, this was a nostalgic way to celebrate our anniversary. The setting is lovely, The service is just right. And the food is delicious. We were there on a Tuesday evening, and after the three young women who had only dessert left, we were the only guests. I don't know if... More

We dined with friends for our anniversary. The food was absolutely perfect. Service was very good, a nice selection of wine. We all had a good time. The perfect place for a good meal whether it's a special occasion or not.

Great service and food, very traditional French preparations. Great wine list, let the owners wife suggest a bottle to go with your meal.

This is probably one of the best locally owned restaurants in Olympia. We have had excellent service every time and fantastic food. Add romantic and intimate ambiance and what more can you ask for?! In a house, right by the mall, you can find this small restaurant. Make a reservation and plan to be spoiled. The bread and salted butter... More

For my wife's birthday I made special arrangements to take her to La Petite Maison. I emailed for a reservation and was met with a prompt reply and a reservation. When we arrived the restaurant was warm and friendly and welcoming. Zoe, co-owner and hostess, sat us and told us of the nights specials and all the options that were... More

Finding quality French food in the US is becoming harder - and this is perhaps the only choice in Olympia. Owners Justin and Zoe have put together a great experience, combining attentive service, quality food, and a great selection of wines. The restaurant is located in a beautifully appointed older farmhouse - and the oak wall, floors and chairs add... More

My family had an early Christmas Eve dinner here and it was terrific. The lobster tail in a puff pastry was rich and full of good flavors and vegetables. The duck was well aged and tender with a savory cherry sauce, the rack of lamb was great, the huckleberries over a cream pot was amazing, the madeira selection was fun,... More

It was exactly what we wanted - a quiet, unrushed, delicious dinner. The atmosphere, the food, and the service were exquisite. I had the goat cheese salad, mushroom stuffed quail, and creme brulee. One friend had the butternut squash soup and lobster puff pastry, the other the french onion soup and salmon. They each had the chocolate souffle. We agreed... More
