“Le Petit Bistrot”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

The "early bird" gets the best deal at this restaurant! There is a special prix fixe in the off season (until Oct. 1st) from 4:00 to 5:30 which includes an appetizer, an entree and a glass of wine for only $20.
We enjoyed the country-style pate and mixed garden salad for appetizer choices, then pan-fried flounder and chicken fricassee "Normande" for entrees. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented - a feast for both the palate and the eyes!!! Authentic French cuisine, generous portions and delicious!
The service was discreet, yet efficient. The decor is what you might expect from a bistro in France - nothing glitzy, but totally functional, clean and comfortable. We appreciated that Eric stopped by our table to introduce himself and to thank us for our patronage.

“Authentic French”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Tried this on a whim and pleasantly surprised. Very friendly host happy to introduce menu. I had the scallops which were perfectly cooked with a great texture served on a bed of bechamel spinach. Salad was fresh lightly coated with house dressing.

Best of all was the duck froie gras, lightly seared on both sides but rare in the center... Accompanying cabernet was also quite good.

Great to have a real French bistro in Venic

“France comes to Venice”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Just returned from Paris where I had onion soup every day. Le Petit Bistrot is better than any I had there. Additionally, The Island Salad with creamy parmesan chicken is possibly the best salad composed on planet Earth. I wish I could go there every day

“A real French restaurant”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

It's more than a sign "French Restaurant". It's owned and staffed by an owner from France. Have enjoyed lunch and dinner. They have great food and enjoyable service.The is a good wine list, try their special desert wine for a complement to your crepe.Don't be confused by some of the comments about the former so called french resturant at this location it was an imitator.

“ALMOST LIKE BEING BACK IN PARIS!!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Today for the first time I tried this little place on the Island of Venice. It changed owners a couple years back, and I had not returned since. I ordered the CROQUE MADAME, and that was truly one of the best I have tasted in many years. My companion had the QUICHE LORAINE and she too was quite satisfied. Coffee was fresh brewed and excellent quality. Service by Tiffany was marvelous. I will definitely return!
