I took my wife and daughters to Petit Paris for Valentine's Day. Food was OK not as good as I remembered it used to be, small portions high prices. We were there about two hours when all the food got brought out except for they forgot my steak. Everybody finished their meal before I got mine and once they brought... More

I am at a loss for words. The lady serving was nice enough, but not nice enough to make up for the awful experience we had. I took my wife here for a valentine's dinner and it was the worst culinary experience that we have ever witnessed, a disaster. To begin with, it took over 25 min to be seated.... More

We always like this place - quaint and quiet. A great place for a romantic get-a-way or an intimate setting for any special dinner. We love the service but would like larger side portions. You won't have stomach bulging feasts here - just great service and great food. Most places serve portions which are out of proportion and we've almost... More

Four of us - three steaks and one haddock. All delicious and cooked to perfection. I wanted steamed vegetables but wound up ordering the baked portabelo mushroom (1/2) of a mushroom- seriously small portion - really? Strip steak was seasoned perfectly and cooked the same way. The other two steaks were perfect too. Our waitress put the desert ordered by... More

Petit WAS a great gathering place for years under the Backy family. We have tried to support the new owners, but last night was the worst. Granted it was NYE , but it was early and not crowded. 1 hour after arriving dinner begins: The salads: extra small Meat/fish:cold potatoes: small/cold Bread: did not have any ready to serve until...

We have enjoyed Petit Paree for many years. The ambience, service and food were always top notch. Last night our friends met there to have dinner on New Years Eve. What a terrible dining experience! Our waitress was known to the group from the previous ownership, and as in the past, she performed her service duties in an outstanding way.... More

Atmosphere was great. Service was excellent. I had lobster and my husband had steak. It was the best that we had in along time. His steak was tender and delicious. My lobster was so big; I shared it with my husband. The carrots and creamed spinach was good too.

Petit Paree was the fanciest restaurant in Festus for generatioins and that is a good thing. Its decor is dated but charming in a 1960-70s way. It is dark and intimate, perfect for the date of your life if you live around here but not anything clandestine because the whole town comes here.The bar is friendly and fun, but not... More
