special occasions everyday
This is a fabulous restaurant that offers a reasonable neighborhood weekday prix fixe as well as a full and impressive a la carte menu of typical French dishes. The decor is cool and the staff (including the ever-present owner) is warm. I just love it and recommend it heartily.

Just What I Needed
I wanted hardy fare, a good glass of wine, and a cosy environment and that's what I got! Despite being insanely busy, the host and waiter never made us feel ignored. My salad and our entrees were fantastic (fish and steak). The dessert was a bit lackluster, but with everything else so perfect and the staff working so hard, it didn't detract from the evening. We loved it and definitely will go back!!

Like being back in France!
This is one of the finest restaurants in San Francisco. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is flawless. It can get pretty hectic, but the staff manages to take care of everyone and make them feel special. Chris did a fantastic job for us! . Many of the patrons are obviously local and you hear French conversations going on, My friend and I shared an arugula, goat cheese and beet salad that had an excellent dressing and made a wonderful introduction to the meal. We both had the Beef Bourguignon which was great, tender and lean beef chunks with carrots and potatoes in a delicious sauce. Our dessert was the Vanilla Ice Cream Profitteroles w/warm chocolate sauce, you couldn't ask for a better ending to a wonderful meal. Yum!

A good, honest, neighborhood
A good, honest, neighborhood bistro. No more, no less. Quite authentically French. Get the "neighborhood" special for $25 Mon-Thu. A bargain. This is not a fancy place, but it is not a fake.

A little bit of Paris in Glen Park
This bistro is the perfect blend of relaxed atmosphere and fine cuisine. My fiance loves food, but is typically not known for raving over it in detail - at Le P'tit Laurent he was waxing rhapsodical over everything from the bread to the salad onwards. Every detail of the food was executed to perfection, and yet the ambience is welcoming and relaxed - no food snobbery or overly formal service to make us feel like nervous diners ;-) We're heading back soon for his special birthday meal!

Favorite cozy SF French restaurant
This place is exceptional. The food is wonderful and Laurent is beyond gracious as a host. The restaurant is small and intimate and Laurent makes you feel like you're a friend he's invited over for dinner.

I really enjoyed my experience. The food was truly memorable, the service was good and my french friends commented first on how it smelled like France when we entered and then later that it was making them nostalgic as it also felt very french with the zinc ceiling and windowed building on the corner converted from a home.
I enjoyed it enough that I'm going back tonight only 2 days later! There were other items on the menu I didn't get to try!

Wonderful affordable French cooking
We had a family dinner and birthday celebration at Le P'tit Laurent. It was a first time visit for us and we were very pleasantly surprised at how warm and welcoming the restaurant was. The menu is fairly extensive for such a small venue, but from our experience, they are capable of delivering top quality dishes at very reasonable prices. The wine selection was inviting, with something for everyone's taste and budget. But most importantly, we were treated to wonderful service by all parties, especially our server. We will be back.

perfectly captures the neighborhood French Bistro ambiance with warmth of service and menu owner's attentiveness.

Once Again Laurent Satisfies
This was only my fourth time at this restaurant and every time has been lovely.
We were seated without waiting by the owner who is very funny and charming. The waitstaff was engaging and attentive without being obnoxious. And the food was amazing!
The friend that I went with adores escargot and has it whenever she can and she swears it is best here. I am a huge fan of their French Onion Soup. Their salmon was incredible; perfectly done and so flavorful. We got the house red which was light enough for my salmon but full enough to match my friend's beef Bourguignon.

A wondereful place to dine
The food, ambiance, service staff are incredible. The portions are great and the prices are fair. The service staff treat you with efficiency and flair. It was so good, we went back the next night for appetizers and drinks.

We love this bistro and find the food is always perfectly done. Efficient service and now with the back to school special, quite reasonable for outstanding French food.

Gem in Glen Park
Neighborhood small French restaurant that offers tasty food in a cozy, warm atmosphere. Our food was presented attractively and hot. Wine list was well priced and varied. All in all a terrific spot for dinner.

A Hidden Gem
Le P'tit Laurent is a hidden gem in the friendly neighborhood of Glen Park. The food is above delicious both in taste and presentation. The lamb and beef dishes are the best. Appetizers and desserts are beautiful to look at and the tastes are exquisite. The wait staff, Chris and Julian are definitely one of the primary factors bringing me back again and again. They are courteous, efficient, friendly and memorable in their performance in the very crowded dining venue. The décor brings back memories of restaurants in France. This is definitely my number one place to bring visitors and friends to enjoy a dining night out!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Le P'tit Laurent had been on our bucket list of restaurants to check out, and as it turns out Glen Park has now become our "new neighborhood." This was my 2nd visit in about a month and on both occasions Le P'tit Laurent did not disappoint with regards to food or service, spot on and as though I was back in Paris at a 'off the beaten path bistro'. Excellent wine list as well, and certainly we will return to take advantage of the 2-course special offering Monday through Thursday. Noise level a little intense this last visit but really nothing that can be done about it, just the nature of dining in a very small room.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well...I know this place has been around for a while, but it was such a nice surprise forme to finally discovered this place. Our server was excellent and nott o mention really pretty to looked at. He was attentive, and nice. Food was outstanding, every dish was incredible and delish. So I def want to come back and highly recommend this place to everyone. And most importantly, it was super reasonable.

Fantastic! Me and my girlfriend
Fantastic! Me and my girlfriend went here for a date and everything was very tasty. The escargot was good, the muscles were cooked well, and the lamb was delicious.

A Great Asset In Glen Park
It has been a while since I had been Le P'tit Laurent, but when I returned, I was warmly greeted by the host, who invited us to sit at the bar while we waited for our table. I was with an elderly couple and the staff took extra care to make sure that tthey were comfortable. The wait for our table was minimal, the service was quick and efficient, and the food remains excellent. I will not wait so long to return.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone at our table agreed
Everyone at our table agreed that our meals was excellent. Both the appetizers and the main course were delicious. One of our diners had the cheese platter for dessert and was extremely pleased with it. The service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. This is my second visit to Le P'tit Laurent but it certainly won't be my last.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our friends were already waiting for us, so when my husband dropped me off to go park, I walked in alone, and a waiter offered me his arm to escort me to our table! Our waiter was wonderful, cheerful, and helpful picking out dishes. All of us ate something different, and each dish was fabulous. I had bass, my husband had rabbit, and our friends had lamb and beef. Mine was a Back-to-school special for a great price in a normally pricey (but well worth it) place. The restaurant was remodeled over the summer, so what used to be a fairly small space, was now comfortably small.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was not only amazing
The service was not only amazing but custom made to each diner. The wait staff was very attentive to children and efficient in the timing of all the dishes coming to the table. It was my wife and I's 4 year anniversary and we were not over crowded my our waiter at all, he let us be because he saw we were in a romantic coma.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Such a lovely place!
My friend and I had their specials. We shared a delicious salad with roast pears, bleu cheese and shrimp. Then we each had roast baby chicken in a glorious wine sauce with frites. We shared the tarte tatin and each had a glass of champagne. Our waitress was adorable. I had her pack all the bones so I could slurk on them when I got home. Such a beautiful spot!

A Touch of France
As a repeat diner, I cannot say enough to laud Le P'tit Laurent. The quality of the food is outstanding, the service impeccable. The starter salads are fresh and delicious and a great way to start a meal. My guest, visiting from French Quebec could not say enough in praise of the cassoulet. The profiteroles for dessert should not be missed. The perfect ending to a great dining experience.

I had went here to try the Beef Bournignon, but it was no longer on the menu. I was so disappointed, so I choose the Pre set menu, which was excellent. I would recommend this spot. Please make reservations as this restauant is not a walk-in. They had turn away many people the night I was there, and it was a Wednesday.

Delicious dinner for 4 people
Our party of 4 were extremely pleased with the atmosphere, tableware and seating at the restaurant. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately at the table of our choice. The menu items were wonderful and enticing. Three of us had the rack of lamb which was superb! The potato leek soup was fabulous as well. One of us had the prix-fixed dinner with fish, soup and dessert. Everyone raved about the meal and want to come back again! Thank you!

Food and service were quite good. An excellent experience overall. I will add this restaurant to my favorites.

Great neighborhood find
Nice place for dinner. Salad of fried artichokes and soup du jour (vegetarian) were both excellent. Loved it. I had the steak ( it was good, nothing like a ribeye though). My husband had the neighborhood special $25 for 3 courses-- he had the veg soup (excellent), the chicken stroganoff (okay) and we shared my husbands dessert -- the mango Napoleon & coconut sorbet (outstanding). So, appetizers & salads & desserts are the highlights for this restaurant.
Atmosphere is truly a French bistro. Service was good -- it was a Tuesday nite & quite crowded, but the host is also the waiter, so when it gets busy, service can be slow.

French and Friendly
Our group of five had a wonderful experience because everyone was able to find something they really liked to eat and drink. The food was delicious! Two in our party had the Price fix and thought it was the best deal. We will return soon!

Warm, comfortable, packed
Warm, comfortable, packed but not crowded, small and friendly, bustling but not hurried. Wonderful traditional French food. Nice Rabbit. Rack of lamb spot on. A couple blocks from BART so very convenient for get togethers of City and Peninsula friends. Excellent at bistro food and homey, no pretensions. Servers are French.

Too noisy for conversation
Service is very good. Food quality varies, but is usually very good. The recent addition of live music will be welcomed by some, but if you like to have a normal conversation while dining, this is no longer the place for you. Open Table does us a disservice by labeling noise that is too loud as "energetic." We don't all want sore throats from yelling, or to be wearing hearing aids by the time we turn 50. Loud restaurants should be called "loud" so that people can make a choice regarding the preservation of their own eardrums.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found this place on Yelp and were so happy with it. The food and service were out of this world. We especially loved the escargot, onion soup, and the rack of lamb.
Very great vibe at this place and it feels like Europe.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
i only give it a 4 star because its very noisy. Other than that, everything is awesome.
