Steak tartare was not on their latest menu, but they made it for me. It was as good as what had in France. The mussels in the cream sauce were excellent. Every single mussel was open, so I think the kitchen culled out the bad ones. Nice touch. The trout special was pretty good. I was happy with the reasonable... More

When I go to french restaurant, I'm looking for great food as well as a certain atmosphere that suggests a french local. This place has both in spades. The design is such that you can certainly imagine yourself in a french cafe in a Paris neighborhood. The food was wonderful. It's very small. One or two tables that seat four... More

Fairly small restaurant at the edge of the university district. The interior is tidy but we prefer the front porch, weather permitting. The service is good and they are not stingy with their wine pours. My filet was as tasty as the come and my wife, a crab-cake connoisseur, declared them to be the second best she has ever had....

P'tit Louis is one of my favorite restaurants in Nob Hill. It is charming and lovely. The wait staff is wonderful and the dining room makes you feel like you are in Paris! I especially like Le steak frites and the oysters on the half shell. It is best to go in the Spring, Fall, or Winter, because it gets... More

I have been to this restaurant many times. The owners changed about a year ago. The food and wine and dessert is great. The service is great. I love the mussels.

Tiny, very French bistro. Mussels with your choice of 6 different sauces. The Moules mariniere are so good I haven't tried the others. My husband had an excellent beef filet with Roquefort sauce; however, a little overdone. If you want medium rare, suggest ordering rare.

Great little French cafe. The atmosphere is charming. The food is good and really does impart a French taste. They serve bread and wine too. The seating is a little cramped but still its a nice place to linger.

Went with a group of colleagues on a Tuesday evening. The place was empty from start to finish, 2.5 hours. Did others know something we didn't? The food was at best fair as regards quality but if you add price, you really could expect a lot more. The ambience was Spartan to skid row at best. Sharpie writings on the... More

Our dinner here was uneven and ultimately disappointing. Service however, was very good. The French onion soup was not of the expected caliber. The onions were a little undercooked. The cheese on top was something very melty, but not Gruyere. The bouillabaisse was the most disappointing dish. The base was watery and did not taste at all of saffron. The... More
