“First Impression, tres bon”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

First visit for our foursome, couldn't get in for wine dinner the previous two nights. Great service and warm welcome from the owner and the chef. Food was very good and true to French traditional cooking. Will definitely come back for a second round and maybe try the wine dinner special night.

“Wine Tasting Review”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We met friends at Le Petit Bistrot for one of their wine tasting dinners. What a delight!! All four of us were very happy with our experience. Food was outstanding, wine was wonderful, ambience was warm and welcoming, service excellent and we all felt the price was well worth the experience. You don't many times have all the elements of a good restaurant in one package and this restaurant has that. Highly recommend it to people who appreciate good food and wine.

Having a pretty good salad for lunch something caught my eye...a cockroach walking along the railing next to my head...needless to say, I won't be back.

LePetitBistrot, Owner at Le Petit Bistrot, responded to this review, December 7, 2012
As the Owner of Le Petit Bistrot, I am extremely sorry that you had a bad experience at our restaurant. We take enormous pride in the cleanliness of our premises and have hired a service to take care of pest control on a regular basis as soon as we opened, since it is absolutely necessary in Florida. I guarantee you that our kitchen and restaurant is one of the cleanest in the area (as our Health Inspector tells us on each visit).
We would like to invite you to return to our restaurant and experience what we really have to offer. We would even welcome you to tour our facilties including the kitchen.

“A Little Paris in Venice”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The owner is a wonderful guy who always has a little time to talk to you. He gave my wife and me many good places to visit when we went to Paris in June. The food menu has something for everyone, even a cheeseburger. Very nice wine as well.

“Definitely the best restaurant in downtown Venice.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We were two couples who decided to try this restaurant in Venice on a Monday night which most restaurants on the Island are not usually opened. To our surprise, this was opened and from the bread to the Caesar salad and the main course was simply delicious. It reminded me of little Bistros in France and Montreal.The atmosphere is pleasant and both Chefs came our table and they were so gracious. I purchased a Campaign Pâté on our way out that I have not stopped eating,delicious. Also want to mention a great selection of very nice wines. We all recommend this restaurant to all our friends who live and visit the area.
