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!

....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
