I have been to LPB occasionally over the last 2 decades...With the new expansion it seems a bit odd and quite loud. Forget about intimate conversation. The food is alwasy good..but the menu itself needs some working out....but I do get tired of people talking about how great of French food it is. As a Former chef and working in... More

I had the hanger steak (very good) and my wife had one of the specials, a Char fish dish which she said was only... More

Came here for dinner, we mainly had appetizers and drinks, but the food was nothing to rave about. Most of the items were ok, we did have an issue with the escargot being sandy. We sat in the front at a very small table, pretty much on top of the other couple sitting to the right and left of us.... More

We've dined several times at Le Petit Bistro . It's time to throw the staff some love again. Sit in the old section, at the bar, where bartender Bob will entertain and delight you. Proof-point, On placing the reservation, Bob recalled that my partner orders a vodka gimlet, and had the cocktail glass already chilling with ice water. How do... More

Went here tonight for an early Valentines dinner with my wife. The expansion is great, we loved the atmosphere. The food was top notch from start to finish. We had the smoked fish plate for an appetizer and it was one of the best I've ever had. I need to know how they did the pickled herring. The french onion... More

Finding a great restaurant is not that easy in the country. By a great restaurant I mean one in which the owners put a lot of thought not only on the food's taste / sourcing of ingredients / presentation / variety / etc., but also the decor / atmosphere, wine list, cocktails list, knowledgeable staff, good service, value for money,...

Delicious, always perfectly prepared, great selection cuisine with French nuances. Ambiance wonderful, venue has now expanded adding an additional section dressed in more modern flair. Very attentive staff. So many great dishes - really stuffed myself this time with Watercress soup, Escarcot, Beet Salad, Cod, lime sorbet.

The service on a Sunday night was cheerful and quick and the noise level was reasonable. While we ate lightly, the fried oysters, the beet salad, and the rolls were excellent, the mussels more non-descript. The wine by the glass menu was quite interesting. I agree with descriptions of the second room...put up some great art, pep it up, change... More
