This is what dining is like in France; attentive staff, well seasoned food, well plated dishes, and an ambiance that melts the cares of the world away. Wonderful steak frite, an expansive wine list and bartenders that know how to pour a classic cocktail. Save room for desert!

....where they will remember your name. The fireplace is always going in the winter, and a perfect touch to go with the french onion soup they are famous for. The menu does not vary much, but they do have nightly specials. Extensive wine list and generous pours of vodka. The Steak Frite is always good as are the escargot and... More

We always enjoyed dining at Petit Louis Bistro in Roland Park, but I must admit our Saturday evening dinner there 10 days back was disappointing. The charming "Bonsoir" as we entered was followed by drinks at the small bar, very rapidly prepared and perfect. We were seated soon thereafter (always appreciate having a reservation actually honored), and began to peruse... More

Well, found this bistro by trip advisor, and decided to give it a try. I've found it difficult in the US to find authentic European food restaurants, so I was hoping this bistro will be a good one as reviews. The place was crowded even though it was Tuesday night. Their service was excellent and wine was great. My duck... More

We've lived less than five miles from Petit Louis for over 12 years and never managed to eat here. That changed with Baltimore Restaurant Week! We ate from the pre fixe menu so it was a nice way to sample what Petit Louis does. Hubby's pate appetizer was a meal in itself. My eggplant/tomato/cheese stack was good but I can't... More

I've been to Petit Louis several times and I took my husband for the first time. I fell in love with the restaurant the first time I went - I loved the look, the ambiance, the service, the food - and I wanted my husband to feel the same way. We ended up going on Napoleon's birthday, which involved diners... More

Located in a 100+ year old building, the restaurant is somewhat noisy. Not the place for a quiet dinner. Service was excellent and attentive, without being intrusive. The food was well prepared and delicious.

A wonderful addition to Howard County. This lovely new restaurant with a stunning view of Lake Kittamaqundi in Columbia brings a lovely "non-chain restaurant" choice to residents of Columbia and those in neighboring communities and Baltimore. This restaurant has only been open for a couple of months. We went there for Sunday Brunch. I had a tasty spinach omelet. The... More

We visited Petit Louis Bistro to celebrate my son's college graduation. It was a very busy lunchtime, with other families and large groups also celebrating similar events. The restaurant decor is the traditional French bistro style, and service was attentive and fairly quick. I ordered the smoked salmon Gravlox as a starter with the Quiche Lorraine as my main course.... More
