French and Fun!

There are now two locations for Petit Louis. I am writing about the one in Roland Park, not Columbia. Petit Louis is not a stuffy restaurant, it is truly a bistro. I love the atmosphere. The tables are maybe a little close together, but not so much that it interferes with the waiters' job. It can... read more

A local friend took me here and I was wowwed! One really does feel like they are sitting in a corner of France. The food, service, and wine list were outstanding. The ambience was cozy, festive, and charming - truly a delight! I cannot wait to return!

My family and I love French bistros. We have gone to them in Paris, London, New York, Washington, Philadelphia (the best comparison would be Parc in Philadelphia or Le Diplomat in Washington), and others. Petit Louis truly stands among the best in our experience. We made a reservation for 8 PM on a Friday night, and both when we arrived... More

Lets' get the ONE negative out of the way early so that I can concentrate on what otherwise was a spectacular meal.Petit Louis was somewhat loud the evening(Thursday) that we went and it was a little difficult to have a conversation.Thats' It. Otherwise,voted unanimously by the four in our group. One of the best meals we have ever had! In... More

We went for dinner last night and couldn't be more impressed. The service and food were superb.Fun, chic, upbeat atmosphere.For appetizers, warm frisée salad with a poached egg and squash soup-both lick-the-bowl delicious. Entrees: braised short ribs and salmon with spinach-could not have been better. Delicious wines and very knowledgable staff. We felt very well taken care of and really... More

If you enjoy traditional French cuisine, Petit Louis will not disappoint. Set in a chateau-style building in a beautiful neighborhood, the dining room is quiet and intimate and the service excellent. I was a little disappointed with the limited lunch menu: just one main course salad and no main course specials. But the salad with grilled was excellent; my guests... More

Great food and excellent service. Super wine list. Perhaps a bit pricey, but worth it. Shared an anniversary dinner with friends.

A business colleague suggested this restaurant. From the moment we entered, it was like being in a Paris bistro. We were greeted warmly by the host. For a Wednesday evening, they had a nice crowd, but by the time we left, the place was quite full. Our waiter provided impeccable service. I started with the hearty and delicious French onion...
