Since we are frequent travelers to France and particularly Paris, we tend to grade French restaurants in the U.S. rather hard. Petit Louis is a good, but not great restaurant. The service is top notch. We were a family of five celebrating my birthday. The main courses were much better than the deserts (except for the chocolate mousse-which was excellent!)--which... More

We needed a place to have lunch with friends while visiting Baltimore. One of my daughter’s colleague suggested Petit Louis Bistro, and what a pleasant surprise. The restaurant ambiance is very pleasing and cozy. It was perfect for our reunion. The staff was extremely attentive, from welcoming and suggestions of the day to service in general. The food was delicious,... More

Wonderful restaurant in a lovely, suburban part of Baltimore. As is the case with just about all of the Cindy Wolf, Tony Foreman restaurants the quality of the food and the wine selections are excellent. Recommended appetizers include the Gravlax, Onion soup, and Mussels. Main courses, Steak Frites, Trout Amandine, and Duck Breast among others. Why not 5 stars? The... More

We loved this place! The menu is bistro French and very casual. It is loud and bustling and the service was very good. The sommelier is very good and can help you navigate the all French wine list. The duck Confit was excellent and the waiter told us when we sat down that there was only one left and he... More

My favorite "special" dinner restaurant in Baltimore. Probably have been there 20 times (for birthdays, anniversary, etc...) and never leave disappointed. The maitre 'd, Patrick, is excellent and ensures the good treatment of the customers. If you visit more than once, they remember you and literally treat you like family. The wine list is massive. This is not a cheap... More

Brilliant sunshine through the million windows and a fire in the fireplace make Petit Louis my favorite spot for a birthday lunch in December. The moutarde violette sauce on the salmon was new, but the rest of the meal was classic French, I.e., perfect.

enjoyed a quiet meal in a a busy restaurant. Food was delightfully and quickly presented. The beignets de crevettes were absolutely amazing. Steak was undercooked but quickly replaced and the owner even verified I was now "happy".

Went to Petit Louis Bistro last night we had a delightful evening. Starting with a warm greeting by the maitre'd and then the excellent service and food provided by Thillman, our excellent waiter, and the rest of the staff. We started with the escargot, served piping hot, with plenty of garlic. Next our favorites, steak frites and then ending with... More

We drive over an hour to come here for lunch, dinner or brunch. The food is always perfection, the service is attentive yet unobtrusive & the ambiance is cozy & classic French. Today I had the prix fixe lunch with black sea bass in a saffron broth; it was delicious! Their seasonal fruit desserts are always excellent. The frites are... More

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!
