This place has been on my list for years and this post is incredibly overdue. I finally decided to go for restaurant week. Baltimore does an amazing restaurant week twice a year; about 50 places offer three courses for about $30. It is a great option for getting into restaurants that might be a little expensive – at least for... More

I haven't dined here in the evening but I would be willing to bet its going to be a good experience. The times I have had brunch or lunch here the value, quality and service have all been excellent. The menu is standard French Bistro fair - but I like that. The fix prie lunch is a great deal. For... More

Petit Louis is one of our favorite restaurants. As a French citizen, I love going there for diner. I feel like I am in France. The food is very well prepared, portions are good without being too large and the service is just outstanding. The wait staff is trained to work as a team and they do it so well.... More

The service was excellent. The food however was mixed. I had the lamb steak and it was not very flavorful. My wife had the eggplant appetizer and that was terrific. Her shrimp dish was just OK. My daughter had the chicken breast entree and felt that was tasty. The chocolate mousse dessert was to die for. So a mixed experience... More

I went there with my wife for our anniversary. Don't forget to make your reservation since the place is very busy. The good was great and the "ambiance" of the place is very pleasing. You feel like you are seating a nice restaurant in Paris.

I enjoyed the escargot in garlic butter without the shell, the Chablis, and the duck confit. They were all wonderful. The chocolate mousse was OK.

Always a great meal. Wonderful service. Frisee' salad is the best anywhere. Order the roast chicken ahead of time and they serve it table side. Did I say how great the fries( frites) are? Awesome 😎

This was my first visit to this lovely French Bistro in Roland Park. The decor was charming, and reminded me a great deal of the smaller restaurants in Paris. The menu was diverse with many dishes from which to choose. I selected the Duck Confit, which was just wonderful! The service was attentive, and they arranged something special for my... More

Lunch is especially nice outside on a beautiful day overlooking the lake. Inside feels like an authentic French bistro. We have eaten here many times and the food is always very good. Recently we used the restaurant for two large parties of 30 or more people. One party was dinner for 30 and the other was a Birthday lunch party... More

Roland Park natives introduced me to this restaurant years ago, and it is now one of my longtime favorites. Having been exposed to the French restaurant scene fairly recently, I can say that Petit Louis compares very favorably. In fact, it is the bistro you hope to find when you are there but have increasing difficulty in doing so, as... More
