La P'tite Framboise Ratings and Reviews
I love this restaurant and its sister one, Cassis, in Huntington. We have gone many times and its a reliable selection with a regular, predictable menu. Everyone enjoyed their food (the caesar salad was particularly crisp, fresh and tasty. My one complaint for the evening was the trout almondine had lots of trout but hardly any almonds. I asked for more and they promptly gave them to me. But, really, I should not have had to ask for this. Otherwise, I highly recommend the place.
I still like this place, but it's just not as good and inviting as it was even two years ago. There have been management changes and it just seems a little more "average" now and like people aren't excited to be there. The sangria isn't real sangria these days. It used to be special and excellent with plenty of good fresh fruit - now it's basically red wine and organge juice with a skewer of fruit at the top Our server took longer to take our orders and like he didn't want to be sure we had a great experience and didn't smile at all. This was a special holiday ladies' brunch and we all enjoyed it, but not as much as we did two years ago. Next time, I will pick another place for our brunch. I will return as the food is still good and it is a nice restaurant, but I left feeling a little underwhelmed.
La P'tite Framboise never disappoints - the food is delicious, starting with the chewy baquette that I can never pass up. Mussels Provencale were a hit with the whole table (with lots of dipping of baquettes to soak up the broth). Fish, steak - all delicious. And the apple Tarte Tatin and Profiteroles were gone within moments of being placed on the table. The only hiccup this night (and we've eaten there many times) was the service. It seemed like some of the waitstaff was "subbing in" - they didn't seem very experienced with questions regarding menu items, and entrees arrived at the table without knowing which guest got which food. Service aside, it was a great meal!
This is my second or third poor review of La P'tite. So, my it's my own fault for continuing to come back. This time I brought two friends from out of town that were very excited for the brunch. When we placed the order, the waiter didn't write anything down. So of course, he didn't get everything right. He completely forgot to put in for the mac & cheese that we ordered as a side dish for the table. If anyone at the restaurant is reading this, PLEASE take note - NO ONE is impressed if the waiter can remember the entire order. Instead, everyone gets upset when something is wrong with the order, especially when the waiter had the opportunity to write it down and get it correct. This is extremely disappointing and embarrassing. Also, when we were dining, there we only two other tables occupied in the entire restaurant yet there was no waitstaff keeping an eye out for requests from the tables. I had to wait quite awhile to get a refill of my water and I had to ask two separate people before it finally came. Please - keep in mind that all diners can cook their own food, they go out to eat for the service.
We were there quite early on a Saturday night and the restaurant was jammed. The noise level was deafening and it was almost impossible to hold a conversation. The tables were very close together. The servers were largely inattentive. I think that asking for bread 3 times is unacceptable. The restaurant would not accept a coupon because just one of the four of us had the prix fixe. We had the mussels, which were quite good, but we will think long and hard about ever returning.
Went on a Saturday night during long island restaurant week, 6 diners, 3 of us ordered the hanger steak from the price fix menu ($28). After sitting down at the table at 6:30pm, we weren't served our dinner until 7:50pm! The 3 hanger steak dinners were very tough and when we complained, the waitress said she would mention it the chef. When we complained again, the surly manager said hanger steak is hard to prepare and then grudgingly decided to take a whopping $12 off a $380 bill. We should have sent the steak back, but we were so hungry by that point. We live local and will never return.
Fell upon restaurant week which was lucky. We had the salad to start which was lovely. The fish and chicken were cooked perfectly. The profiterole was my favorite. The creme brulee lacked the crunch I like for the caramelized sugar The waitstaff was overburdened but on top of their game. Will certainly return to try other things on the menu
Great service, excellent food. Port Washington Restaurant Week was a surprise. So restaurant was overly crowded and noisy for a weeknight meal with friend. Wanted a quiet b-day celebration. Oh, well! There is nothing in the restaurant to absorb sound. Charming waiter who made us laugh and feel very welcome.
I dined w/ my 5 yr granddaughter & dtr. they were very accommodating. i ordered french onion soup to start. absolutely delicious. followed w/ steak w/ garlic mashed potatoes. also yummy. ending w/ Creme Brûlée just perfect. even as busy as they were we didn't wait for anything everything was served with care & timely. chicken & pasta also very good
I consider myself a food snob because I’ve been eating out in find restaurants for 60 years. Many Long Island restaurants don’t compare in food quality, presentation and service to the more sophisticated New York City scene. This is the third Port Washington restaurant that exceeds my expectations. I’m very happy I finally found La Petite Frambois.
Dinner was delicious. 2 couples went and all our main dishes were perfect Only problem is the noise level. I would go during the week when it is less crowded and less noisy. Friday night was terribly noisy. We asked the manager to move our seats and he graciously did which helped a little.
Went for Sunday Brunch at 1:00. Waited 20 minutes until our order was taken, then waited another hour for our food. When I asked them, they told me that the Steak Tartare takes 25 minutes. But that was not the only thing we ordered and still it took an hour. The one cheeseburger that was ordered had the wrong cheese on it. We told the waiter and he looked and said he put it in correctly on the order so it was the kitchen's mistake, not his. He then walked away without offering to correct the error. I asked if the restaurant is under new ownership and was told NO, just new management. It was never this bad before. Will not go back again.
this restaurant will not be long for Port Washington. Waitress was new / nervous / annoying. Bartender kept flipping off the first Yankees baseball playoff game to put on the Rangers hockey game, after i said something 3 times to just leave the game. Tuna tartare was cut with tomato pieces to make it look larger. Half the mussels were empty.
