The food is very good, wine list is nice and the service is solid. Had the duck which was excellent, salads were nice, hanger steak also very good. The restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night and still had to wait despite a reservation. Cheese assortment looked marvelous. It's french, slightly stuffy and caters to an older crowd. While it...

Petit Louis Bistro in Roland Park is one of our favorite Baltimore area restaurants because their food quality is consistently remarkable and the service is stellar. We were there to celebrate our anniversary on this occasion, and the staff treated us like royalty with complimentary champagne and dessert. The amount of staff to diners must be 1.5 to 1. There...

I usually go to PLB with work making my wife quite jealous. It was our anniversary recently and decided to go there as a couple. Our reservation was for 6:30 on a Saturday, so it was quite busy, but there was no wait. Food was quite delicious - I had a prix fixe "tomato" selection which was quite outstanding. My... More

The wines and cheeses immediately let you know that this restaurant is the real deal! The food was delicious, as it always is, and the wine made it perfection!

I lived in Paris as a kid and this place took me back to that. I was visiting a friend and suggested lunch there ,as it came up as the "best place in Roland Park" for lunch. It was all that. It took me back to all the great places in Paris. Don't worry about the cost, just enjoy the... More

You won't think you're in Paris, but Petit Louis is very good. Well planned menu. Some of the servers should learn something about French pronunciation, before reciting the specials. It can be painful. Excellent snails and Salade Frisée. Foie gras, average at best. Confit was excellent. Frites were very good. Steak Frites was good. Desserts missed. Sorbet was mediocre. Very...

I lived in France for seven years and go back to Paris every two or three years; I sure know a bistro when I see one. The Petit Louis Bistro in Baltimore's tony Roland Park section has it nailed: - Tables with the traditional bistro marble motif - Brass fixtures - Servers with traditional black outfits and white aprons -...

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
