Diner Reviews
  • "We loved our dining experience. Simply outstanding waitress and sommelier. Brilliant wine list. Excellent food. I can prepare escargot better, but that was minor to a meal of excellent entrees, outstanding cheese, delicious deserts and great hospitality."

  • "I have been in the Towson area frequently in the last year and have "dined around". This IS the very best restuarant in this area and I wish we had a restuarant of this quality at home. Duck, trout, omelette, appetizers, salads all are fine."

  • "We celebrated our 3rd anniversary in a row at Petit Louis and there is a very good reason for doing so...we have never been disappointed! This one was our 49th and sets up a real conundrum for what to do for our 50th. Oh heck, we'll just do two celebrations."

  • "Lunch was yummy! My out of town guests/ vendors were very impressed and they were from New Jersey/New York-- so that says some thing. Omlette, prawns provencal, medium rare salmon over greens and of course frites! The pace is just right and service is fabulous and unobtrusive-- Perfect setting, classic old time french bistro !"

  • "I have eaten here over 100 times and consider this my favorite resteraunt. It saddens me to say my last meal there was under-seasoned and the service was impersonal with 6 different people taking care of us at 6:00 on a Wednesday but no one taking the time in a half full resteraunt to develop any kind of rapport with us. Maybe their attention is on the new outlet in Columbia? Too bad, because if I have another experience like this one I'll not return to a place that I have a decade of memories at."

  • "From the hostess who sat us to the wait staff and busboy we felt special and taken care of while dining at Petit Louis on the occasion of our daughters 25th birthday. The salads, appetizers, wine, cheese course and desserts were excellent. On the pricey side but we'll worth it. We would rather eat here once a month than 4 other places once a week!!!"

  • "The food presented at this meal was top notch. The flavors were seasonal and exceptional. I would go back to this wonderful restaurant in a heartbeat."

  • "The food and the service are excellent. The cheese plate was outstanding too. However, when the restaurant is full the noise level is really deafening."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The evening began well...the ambience was great - charming, warm and welcoming and the Sommelier was very knowledgeable and suggested a great bottle within our price range. Even the appetizers we ordered (beet salad, escargot, mussels and eggplant Napoléon) were all VERY tasty! It wasn't until our main courses arrived that things began going downhill. The duck was flavorless and the dish seemed very disjointed. The fish we ordered was fine, but nothing great. And the presentation for both plates certainly fell short. Attempting to end the night off positively, we ordered cappuccinos - which were completely undrinkable! I really expected more from Petit Louis."

  • "The staff and food are unsurpassed and the attention to detail is impressive! We always feel totally at home and love meeting friends for a special night out."

  • "What a delight! I've eaten here several times and I'm always amazed at how delicious everything is! I'll keep coming back! I hope to experience food this good in Paris this Fall."

  • "The service was fantastic. The crust on the quiche was flaky and buttery. Also the content in the quiche was rich in the egg and cheese. The fruit tart and coffee ice cream were delicious."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I have said this many times, but Petit Louis seems to be "my home away from home". I feel so comfortable at Petit Louis, not to mention a consistently delicious meal every time I dine there. The servers are highly experienced, but friendly and communicable. Always a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We took our friends out to celebrate their wedding and from the moment we arrived the staff acknowledged the wedding and then the sommelier even sent over a bottle of Champagne. Everything was just wonderful and we absolutely think we picked the perfect place to celebrate. We look forward to going back soon."

  • "My favorite restaurant in Baltimore! Always a great menu and wine list. Excellent staff, the best!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We were squeezed into a very small booth, and very close to the other table in such that they could hear our conversation and we them! It took an hour to get our food, but they recognized it took a while and brought us complimentary cheese."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Was upset that we had to wait close to 30 minutes for a table which was sitting empty for at least 15+ minutes. Even people who can in after us we're seated ahead. Granted we changed the party size from 2 to 3 but the hostess stated that it would not be a problem. I wish she had clarified her response. Unfortunately this wait has become a common occurrence. Even in my past visits, we have been forced to wait with a reservation even as long as 45 minutes."

  • "Service was unusually lumpy with a trainee and poor wine tending."

  • "While my wife had previously dined at Petit Louis, this was my first trip to the restaurant. Petit Louie felt very French and we were very impressed with the quality and choices of menu items as well as with the excellent service. We both had different types of duck and it was excellent along with the beet salad and the pate. We will be back!"

  • "The rooms are beautifully appointed and the food is wonderful. The service was outstanding. Everyone was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. True professionals. The only problem was the noise level."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I like Petit Louis except for several ongoing issues. 1) overly attentive wait staff - they hover too much and interrupt conversations. 2) noise level remains high."

  • "My husband and I recently celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary and decided to go to Petite Louis. This was my third time and my husbands first- I included that it was our wedding anniversary in the information section when doing the reservation and the waiter acknowledged the milestone when he introduced himself. He made the entire evening very special for us. They even gave us complimentary champagne with our dessert. Overall it was a spectacular evening and we will definitely be back. Wonderful service, delicious wine and food, top notch!!"

  • "We were traveling through Baltimore and were looking for a nice restaurant for dinner. We had just spent 30 days in France. Petit Louis Bistro was perfect. The food was excellent. We had the duck breast and duck confit and also the beet salad. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We would definitely go back. If you like French food, we would recommend Petit Louis Bistro."

  • "I visited Baltimore for two days and happened to find this place, and was very pleased with my experience. They had a great wine selection, very authentic French cuisine, and above all their service was top-notch. I am a foodie from NYC and frequently dine at upscale restaurants, but I have to say that Petit Louis had better service than many of the restaurants that I've been to. I took my mom to treat her and was very pleased with the ambiance, food, and the service. The price was very reasonable too. I will definitely return when I visit Baltimore again."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Food was excellent, service was very good. Menu was varied and provided lots of choices. Wine list was outstanding. Only negative, it was very noisy, but not more so than many other restaurants."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Excellent food. Everything was delicious. The chicken for two was one of the best meals we have ever had in a restaurant. The ambience is very quaint. There is something for everyone on the menu and we tried many different things, all excellent. Except for our waitress being quite unpleasant, it was a great meal. We could see that the other service people were all pleasant and very skilled, so we think our server was having an off day."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I took my dad to the Roland Park location for Father's Day. The food was fantastic, as was the service. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and had a delightful demeanor. The decor and ambiance are great too. And they have free parking! My dad has also been to the Columbia location and gave it high marks as well."

  • "Love this neighborhood gem! Good usually good but occasionally there is a blip in an entree. My trout was fabulous! Pomme frites always divine. Service wonderful!"

  • "I took my granddaughter for her middle school graduation. I had heard rumors that the quality had dropped a bit since the chef was moved to the new location. Although it was still a good meal, this is my second visit in a month and again the new chef has offered carrot soup instead of the expected and loved asparagus that was always on the menu in the spring. I would also say that the green salad, though excellent was a bit overdressed. I know this sounds picky, but I was spoiled by perfection. The new shrimp dish was lovely."
