    Petit Louis is modeled after a typical French bistro in its décor. The restaurant is situated on an attractive street in a residential area with old homes. The brunch menu offers numerous options from scrambled eggs to chicken breast with mushrooms inspired by a French approach. The atmosphere at brunch was calm and relaxed. Parking in front of the restaurant is somewhat limited, but we were able to find a spot on the street.

    Really enjoyed our first time dining at Petit Louis Bistro. We were there for a birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. The bread (baked in house!) and butternut squash soup was a great start. We had the trout almondine and salmon grille. The food tasted wonderful and the portions were perfect (left us feeling full but not stuffed). The only mark off was for dessert: the pear tart was simply OK.

    Our date night visit to Petit Louis exceeded expectations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable & the restaurant was decorated beautifully. The whole experience was like a little piece of Paris in Roland Park. The food was impeccable. We particularly enjoyed our entrees; I had the duck breast & my boyfriend had the lamb sirloin. The sommelier was friendly & gave expert wine suggestions. Our only complaint was that we were seated at a two top table very close to two other couples resulting in a bit less of a romantic experience than we had hoped. We can't wait to revisit this delightful bistro & try some of their other culinary creations!

    This was not my first time dining at Petit Louis. I had visited the restaurant several times for lunch, but never for dinner. I always have been very impressed with the food. I took the opportunity to have dinner with a friend there recently. The food was absolutely great! It is definitely a wonderful choice for lunch or dinner!

    This restaurant had delicious and authentic french food -- something I was never expecting to find in Baltimore! It's truly a neighborhood gem, tucked away in a suburban corner of the city, yet offering food that stands out. Having tired the chocolate mousse after a fabulous steak frites - some of the best I've had in the US - I'm looking forward to going back and trying everything else on the menu!

    Petit Louis is a really great place. The service in particular is far above most restaurants. But if going for lunch plan that it is your main meal of the day. Not really much in terms of light fare or lunch foods on the menu.

    Like a star athletic at peak performance, Petit Louis continues to knock the food ball out of the park. Classic French Bistro dishes served with contemporary flair are crowd pleasers. Along with a rotating list of specials to keep long term patrons onboard. A deep & wine balanced wine list closes the deal. The staff is professional & very knowledgeable and treats regulars and newcomers alike with that magical touch.

    It's often difficult to to recognize a change in the kitchen without seeing a new menu that reflects the strengths of the new chef. As a regular of the restaurant which has stayed true to its traditional cuisine since its' opening, my wife and I were both surprised and delighted at how much we enjoyed our dining experience. Both the presentation and preparation of our diners were exceptional. As always the service was immaculate. Plan to go back again soon.

    From the moment we sat down, our waitress made us feel unwelcome. The others who participated in the meal were outstanding, as in the past. They would aim for the little extras and friendliness that made service there special. Our main server seemed to resent that we were there, and perhaps, keeping her from something more pressing. We have enjoyed the food tremendously in the past. Last night it was just ok. Something is off about the place.

    The Petit Louis experience is unparalleled. From Patrick's enthusiastic "Bonsoir!" to the special attention given to the occasion you may be celebrating, you feel immediately like a regular. When the excellent server staff attend to your needs at the table, there is a sense of sincere joy in what they are doing. We ordered starters of onion soup gratinee and the charcuterie du jour. Both were notable for their simplicity. For our main courses we enjoyed the duck leg confit and steak frites. Some of the best pommes frites we have ever tasted. We finished with Brillat Savarin cheese - layered with truffles. A special treat of dessert sparking wine followed a great bottle of reasonably priced Cotes du Rhone. We can't wait to go back.

    The food was excellent and the service outstanding . I happen to understand French but for those who don't it can be annoying when most of the plates and ingredients are mentioned in French . The proximity of the tables can make conversations challenging at times. Overall an enjoyable dinner especially the cheese tray at the end of the meal.
