    Loved the menu- some old-timey menu items and sauces. We got the scallops with mashed potatoes and the crispy trout with gnocchi- loved both - what I loved the most was the four seasons salad with tomato vinaigrette - yum. Soloist singing added to the evening. A casual atmosphere too!

    My wife wanted to go here for the beef wellington. It was indeed a treat and great food for the value. I ordered lamb rack, it was OK - a bit overcooked and a bit on the blend side but still good.

    Visit the Petite Auberge for class & food. Our party was served well with several delicious dishes inspired by fine European cuisine, especially three from Austria and Germany. For what we received, the prices were reasonable. This restaurant has real class as a white-linen-tablecloth establishment that is at once elegant and unpretentious.

    Always have great service and good food. A bit disappointed that they were out of the trout almondine, my favorite. But, getting 40% off, since it was their 40th anniversary, made up for disappointment. Complimentary dessert always appreciated, and since their salads are so ample, we often split one.... And they do NOT have a "splitting" charge. It is a wonderful place to go for special occasions.... Or ANY occasions! We also choose it because it is on Open Table. Never have to wait..... Love that!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/6/2014
    The food and service were good. That's it-just good.The 4 of us enjoyed our meals because we had not seen each other in a while and had a lot to discuss.The food was really very average and overpriced for what was served, and presentation was lacking. It appeared they were understaffed as we had to wait quite a while to even get a server to our table so we could order drinks. They were preparing for a small group and we joked perhaps we should pretend we were part of the group so we could get service. It is a nice neighborhood restaurant but don't expect anything exceptional to come out of the kitchen.

    Went here for dinner on a Tuesday night. The atmosphere was relaxed, the lighting brighter than most fancy restaurants, so I could read the menu without squinting. The service was friendly and courteous, and the food was excellent. We tried a Chilean Sea Bass and a Filet Mignon, both of which were delicious. The wine was good, though I am no connoisseur of fine wines. Overall, a great experience, and I will definitely dine here again.

    I rarely do poor reviews....the wait staff are fine but the food just isn't very good. I went thinking maybe it'd be good old fashioned French cuisine. Sometimes I like old fashioned fare or the "classics". At these prices you can get much better. Poor cuts of meat, gloopy sauces, boring vegetables. It's mostly older clientele who have probably been going for decades and I imagine they are the reason why it survives, and it's not busy....but there is no excuse for bad food. I feel sorry for the wait staff. Nothing was good. If you are a foodie, in a great food city like Atlanta, be warned. Avoid.

    Took our friends there to celebrate their 55th anniversary; and it was the perfect place: great food, sweet ambience, good service, nice background music (not too loud. We were able to carry on a decent conversation.) Portions more than ample. Some of us split salads and entrees. Our waitress surprised us with Baked Alaska when she heard we were celebrating. Been going there for almost 30 years and will continue to do so.

    My wife and I were looking for near a restaurant nearby Emory Hospital to celebrate the successful completion of her eye surgery. We found Petie Auberge from open table and were delighted that we tried it. Excellent hearts of Palm salad, beef Wellington and north Georgia, Trout Almondine. service was attentive but not overbearing. German dishes on the menu look appetizing for a future visit and my wife enjoyed time tasting and purchasing olive oils at there Olive Oil Bar.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Petite Auberge. The service was extremely attentive, the food was presented very attractively, and we enjoyed every bite. We started with the shrimp cocktail which had 5 or 6 huge shrimp. The spinach salad was presented beautifully and was ample. The rack of lamb had 4 generous pieces cooked to perfection. We were able to get the double baked potato instead of the mashed potatoes and we were also given the option to chose the asparagus instead of the green beans, so it appears that you can choose whatever sides are available. Prices were reasonable. The rolls were warm, served with delicious dipping oil. We celebrated a birthday and had two desserts on the house. I highly recommend this restaurant

    Haven't been to this restaurant in over 20 years and the food is as mediocre as I remember it. The best part of the evening (besides the group of friends that accompanied me) was the singer, Berne Polikoff. So nice to have a local place like this to go; just wish the food was better.

    Decor lovely, live music very nice service good, food middle of the road. F/onion GREAT! Hearts of Palm Salad tasty and presented beautifully. White wine selection could be larger but our Kir Royals were wonderful before dinner. Dinner main courses were warm ( may have been sitting before delivery). Avoid the Lobster Tails ! I was offered a replacement dish but did not accept as it would have thrown off the dinning with others at my table. The management comped our three deserts which was very nice and appreciated. We will dine here again. I truly believe the kitchen was having a bad night as we have dined here in the past with superb food and service.

    We picked this restaurant because it had the bouillabaisse on the menu. This is a dish from South of France with a mix of flavors and spices and I love it. What they served should not have been called bouillabaisse. It was a flavorless fish stew. My husband ordered the chicken cordon bleu and it looked more like a corn dog version of chicken cordon bleu. The manager came to our table and was very pleasant about it though. The final straw was the singer with the accoustic guitar singing Puff the magic dragon. I do not recommend this place at all, if you're looking for a good French restaurant. This is not it. Overall very disappointing.

    My wife and I live across the street from the Toco Hill Shopping Center, and had been saying for years we would go to Petite Auberge. We finally went and really enjoyed our dinner. We were literally the only people in the restaurant. I felt silly saying we had a reservation so I could get OpenTable points, the manager just looked at me and chuckled. The waiters were both excellent. They have both French and German food available, and serve you outstanding bread and olive oil while you wait. The place looks like it could use a major renovation on the inside, the inside shows its age very clearly. We will definitely try it again.

    We dined at Petite Auberge for the first time last week. We had made a reservation and when we arrived we were seated in what I termed "Siberia." We were far away from any other occupied tables in an area of the restaurant with much less ambiance. We never really figured out who our waiter was as we had one person take our orders and another do everything else. I ordered french onion soup to start with but never received it (and never saw a waiter to ask about it until our food arrived). My filet was very tender and my husbands lamb was good but our sides were very basic (steamed veggies and mashed potatoes). Food was mediocre to good but the service was terrible and we never felt welcome. Won't be returning...

    Very traditional menu. Food was good but not memorable. Very quiet which was a nice change compared to the new hep places which are usually very loud. We were looking for a good reasonably priced place to dine and chat with our friends and it was perfect for that. If you are looking for a "cool place" this is not it.

    This is one of the most reliable restaurants I know about. It has been a nice place to go for years. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice and the noise level is usually low enough to communicate with everyone at your table. I have never had a function here but when were dined there was a graduation in one room and a wedding reception in another and we still had a nice meal with good service.

    Nice Christmas decorations. Service day after Christmas was slow few patrons. Took several minutes to get drink & first course snails were not served individually all in one pastry shell/dish. Very good to my surprise. mushroom salad great flavor thought should have had more than 1 type mushroom. Great lamb rack, great Beef Wellington great prices. daughter did not like veal Marseille, had an Oriental flavor, Bordeaux sauce was used instead of a Marsala wine? leftover really good. 1 dessert bland; cream brulee peach flavor, choc mousse really good rich.party of five enjoyed them, will go back for special occasion drive is 20 miles from home, was a nice change from the few table cloth restaurants we have locally. good wine at a good price
