My mom and I had the breakfast which was delicious and the staff was very friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice evening outMet with a colleague who was managing a conference at the Marriott. Great food, very helpful staff with a flair for French food.
I would recommend this, especially for those staying at the Marriott Wardman. A great escape from hotel food!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPlump mussels and perfect fritesIt was a cool, drizzly Thursday evening and we were reminiscing about mussels enjoyed in Bruges. We entered the door of Petits Plats and what did we see? Big steaming bowls of mussels and golden crisp frites! And they tasted as good as they looked! Heaven. Good wine selections to compliment their menu, as well.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA little bit of FranceThis neighborhood gem in Adams Morgan (close to the zoo) is a little bit of France. It is a bistro style restaurant that serves excellent food in the simple French bistro style. They do have outdoor seating, though we did not do this on either visit. It was a little chilly for our taste. The downstairs is quiet. But the upstairs would be a great place for a large group to have a fun time. The two times we were there, the upstairs was lively. They have a standard menu and daily (maybe weekly) specials. If the seafood combination over mushroom risotto is available--be sure to try it. It was heavenly. We all ordered different things each time and found everything delicious--obviously fresh ingredients prepared to perfection!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurantsOne of our favorite restaurants in DC.

Great food, good service and romantic ambience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPetit-Plats is a must forPetit-Plats is a must for us whenever we are in Washington DC. The food is always delicious and of high quality. The servers are very friendly and attentive. We always feel welcomed back as if we are family.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a nice experienceConsistently very good. Had a nice lunch there on a warm Spring day. Several people were sitting outside (small area of tables on Connecticut Ave sidewalk, also a couple outside tables up a level). But we sat inside next to window - nice, airy, and bright. We couldn't have asked for more gracious and knowledgeable service. Great split pea soup and seafood salad - nicely cooked seafood. Friend had huge pile of mussels accompanied by good fries. All very delightful! will definitely continue to return.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal!Had a lovely meal here. The place is small and rather cramped, but has a nice atmosphere. For appetizers, we ordered escargot and beet salad. The escargot was great and the beet salad was also good but a bit on the scimpy side (they need to provide more). For entrees, we had the short ribs and the wild rockfish - both were great. The dessert (apple tart) was yummy. Also, we really appreciated the fact that wines by the glass were quite generous. Definitely will return!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting WashingtonWe were visiting Washington DC on a family vacation and stayed across the street at the Marriott Wardman. We really enjoyed a Friday night dinner at Petits Plats - the food was excellent - so was the wine and a very reasonably priced wine list too. The setting is quaint and cozy. We enjoyed it so much we returned on Easter Sunday for our brunch which was incredible. $3 mimosas & the very best Eggs Benedict I've ever had. We will want to return during out next stay at the Wardman.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable and EnjoyableBeen to Petits Plats many times over the years. The food and atmosphere are are consistently excellent. The hosts were warm and welcoming as always. In general, the service is also excellent with servers who are professional and also personable. On this occasion, the 2 male servers were rather lackluster - nothing went wrong, but they added nothing to the experience. I'll go back, though. I always enjoy the experience.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBeef bourguignon melts in mouth!Beef bourguignon melts in your mouth. Be careful not to lick the plate as this is a romantic and sophisticated restaurant. The staff makes you feel completely at home and at ease. The food is mouth watering.
