Fantastic groove and wonderful service. The food was great with one exception being the wagyu beef be very fatty and hard to cut with a butter knife. Despite that we'll definitely come back again.

Our dinner was one of the best I've enjoyed in Seattle this year, perhaps in a couple years. Service was excellent, the food imaginative, including dessert. And though not a dessert, the goat ribs were especially memorable. Cocktails in super cold glasses were outstanding. And I loved the second floor window view of Fremont Central.

It was somewhat expensive--so that's why it's only "4 stars" for value. But we ate every bite and every bite was delicious. I've been recommending it to my friends (except those who like quiet places) and will take my cuisine-appreciative daughter here for her birthday.

Love this place. We always sit at the bar because the bartenders are rad and it gives you a little view onto the kitchen. This is an awesome place for a special occasion or just a casual meet up with a friend for a drink and a bite.

Delicious, inventive dinner. The Wagyu sirloin was incredible as anticipated, but we were surprised at how much we enjoyed the charred accompanying vegetables! Cocktails were spot on and we were happy that our waitress convinced us to get the charcuterie.

My partner and I always enjoy having a impromptu date night together here. We luckily had a Friday night off together ( both being servers ) and we decided to dine out at our favorite spot in Fremont. The food is always amazing, we always get the charcuterie board and than two entrees to share. Unfortunately our service was uneven, we were unsure whom our server was. Seeing our “first server” being attentive and joking with other tables but inattentive with us. After ten mins she came up and was silent, we than being in the industry of fine dining with small kitchens, took charged and ordered our favorite drinks / food. After the amazing appetizer course we still weren’t offered new drinks ( drinks were empty for a while) we had talked and decided on a bottle of wine but it took so long we ended up just getting a beer and a glass of wine. The entrees showed up , we devoured them ( best food in Fremont ) but decided to not get dessert or after dinner drinks because of service. We are a younger couple but have been in the industry for over 8 years and we just want to reiterate the servers need humbling but the chefs do not !

It took us three HOURS to dine at such leisure. No rush. Kind servers. Over the top dishes, one and all! A shocker of an evening for us...

Great meal. Burned my original steak in the kitchen and they had to redo it, so my dish came later than my party. But, they gave us lovely pork belly to compensate. Perfect cook on the steak, pork, and burger. Pork belly is the highlight. Good service.

This place always amazes yet is never the same. It's a creative adventure in cuisine that even the less educated palate can be thrilled by. I find the personal touch from the host to the chef reflects the pride and joy that Le Petit has in it's food and has for their patrons. I'll be back soon.

Quite expensive for Seattle, without living up to the price tag. Mains are mostly in the $30 to mid $40 range, most starters in the mid $teens. While I like the farm-to-table, tip-to-tail concept, our actual plates ranged from "meh" to "pretty good" which is not a great selling point at that price.

We had dinner with friends we hadn't seen in years. We did the tasting menu - it was delicious from appetizer to dessert. It's a bit expensive but typical of tasting menus in other places. I appreciated the effort that went into each unique taste experience.

We went to Le Petite Cochon for my birthday during restaurant week. Everything was wonderful. The dishes were creative, used fresh ingredients, and were all delicious. Each course was seasoned perfectly with many different interesting flavors. The servicer were very attentive and provided helpful input on the menu. The prices were very reasonable since it was restaurant week. The usual prices are high but it seems worth it for the quality and the experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or a romantic date night.

We've eaten at this place a number of times, and the food is always high quality with good service and decent ambiance. But this time we made the mistake of going during restaurant week. The place was packed with hyenas who were howling and folks laughing like kookaburras. The noise level was excruciating. I asked the waitress, and she said that restaurant week brings a different clientele --- seemed like they had escaped their usual sports bar, that kind of noise. But the tasting menu for restaurant week was good and worth the price. So, I recommend the place, but don't go when it's crowded, too damn noisy. Although I find that it is a common problem even among expensive restaurants in Seattle to have interior arcitecture that causes the noise level to go up. Apparently, it makes people buy more drinks, as in a sports bar again. Well, it makes me go out less.

The portion is small but this is SRW so it is expected.

My second visit. Eager to try again after my initial visit, but I was not as impressed this go around. Hit the 3 for $33 and still spent $155 for 2 people with a cocktail pre-meal and a glass of wine with dinner. Food was very good, and the presentation excellent. That said, I felt the presentation of garnishes was there to cover the empty plate...I needed to eat when I got home. I'd recommend but only to get a full meal.

The food was amazing: starting with the huge Charcuterie Tray through the three main main courses we tried, (we were being good and skipped dessert) the food was delicious, creative and more than substantial. There were so many different freshly crafted meats we couldn’t pick one as the best. We loved everything and will definitely be going back for more.

You should make this reservation, you won't be disappointed. They have a sassy little explanation on the back for their menu that Le Petit Cochon certainly lives up to. Indulgent food, cozy/eclectic atmosphere, awesome staff, good music, quality drinks, and a great location. We'll be back for the tasting menu soon! Pig tails, burger and gnudes were all incredibly salty, savory and delicious.

This is our third time back for our son's birthday, since he loves the "Pig burger" so much, and we enjoyed all of the dishes, especially the charcuterie plate.

Le Petit Cochon is a great place for meat lovers looking for non-traditional, rich and flavorful dishes.

Our experience tonight was nothing less than porcine. We ate like like the little piglet we are. Everything, from the lighting, to the service, to the drinks, and especially the food was expressive, detailed, and determined to bring a smile to our faces. It was like god was pulling at the corner of our lips. Shout out to our waiters who kept up filled with drink and laughter! We’re definitely coming back. 🐷

The mixed nuts with nuggets of warm and crispy pork fat started what was a GREAT meal!!
We split the burger and the pork chop...which was WELL worth the wait/cook time!!

I really wanted to like this place because it's in my neighborhood. The French name is misleading because it's a mishmash of cuisines. The food was mediocre and very overpriced. $48 for a pork chop?! t would've needed to be the best ever and wasn't though it was big. I found the waiter kind of weird. Too edgy for me. The wine by the glass choices were very limited and not that great.

Recalling my week and a half long trip to Seattle in late February/early March, I have to say dining at your restaurant and sampling the tasting menu accompanied with drink pairings was one of the most memorable meals of the trip. I find myself constantly recounting the pork tartar, lamb heart, natural Willamette Valley red wine, and pig butter. It was a small and intimate and dark setting. A perfect environment to celebrate the end of a magnificent trip with my girlfriend.
