“Alsace good with Style”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We were despairing of finding an evening meal that did not leave us feeling distinctly uncomfortable. Here we found local food cooked with a difference. The portions were reasonable and the dishes had touches that made all the difference, the soup with tuna rillette on toast was delicious and the meatballs made a very good main. It is in a very pretty part of town and gets busy so a reservation is advised

“Better choices in Petite Venise”
Reviewed June 8, 2012 via mobile

Dinner for two was less than impressive. Our fois gras appetizer was a good start but things went downhill from there. My wife's charcuterie plate was okay but we had better at other Colmar restaurants. My canard was dry & the sautéed potatoes that accompanied it underwhelming. After dinner we ordered desert & coffee. After 10 minutes we were told the pear tart was no longer available. It took another 15 minutes for the substitute chocolate dessert to arrive. The coffee never did.
There are much better choices in both the quality of the food, service and overall value in Petite Venise.

“Good Food”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We did very much like the food and ambience. Service was good but the waitress spoke the fastest French known to mankind but then flipped over into the fastest English - barely intelligible even in my native tongue. We didn't much like Dido music played in a loop. On balance the food quality makes this a 4* rating.

“Little things mean a lot.”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Special focus of detail, salad leaves bad, when mentioned, I place of apology and replacement, they offered a clean plate so that I can take bad leaves and put in in the plate!

They atmospher is very nice and authentic. They do need to improve the service and do not make an assumption that only the tourists visit there.

“Great place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

We ate here several times because it was so close to our hotel. We had salmon over lentils, which was spectacular. We always ordered Alsatian Muskat wine with our meals, served in the typical green stemmed wine glasses. A saxophonist played during all our meals there. The waitresses were all very nice and helpful to us, especially considering that we don't speak French.
