If you ask the brilliant minds behind Le Petit Paris, Fanny and David Rolland, They will say “We were born in a restaurant, literally”. From Grandpa to father, the restaurant business has been a natural part of their daily life.

They decided 15 years ago to create their first restaurant in Cannes, Le Petit Paris, Parisian brasserie, located in the middle of the international film festival city.

In order to give the opportunity of an unforgettable experience in Cannes to their international clientele, they decided to run a business on the beach with the combination of well being, relaxed and lay down on the beach with a cocktail and enjoying a gastronomic food.

David and Fanny were always striving to be surrounded by great collaborators in order to provide a real “savoir-faire” to their clients. They have been known worldwild now thanks to their hard work and dedication.

loved the building, ambiance and food was great! Also the noise level was good. Could actually talk. The service was so terrible, we sat there for 15 minutes with no water, drink menu or anything. Had to flag down the hostess to get someone over to us. I requested a birthday celebration dessert, it never came but was shown on the bill. The server was terrible.

The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We were there for an early dinner, 4 pm to be exact so the place was a little empty and quiet. I was celebrating my partners birthday. The desserts were amazing . We are definitely going back. Thank you for a wonderful time.

The building in which the restaurant resides is worth the visit all by itself. It brings you back in time to an era like that of the Roaring '20s. This restaurant exemplifies all the good changes that have taken place with downtown LA. This is a great restaurant to get you into the mood for the play, musical, or symphony you are about to attend or to wind down after the show is over. The wine list gives you many options and the food choices are authentic French. As for seating, I recommend you ask for the tall chairs and tables if your party is less than three people.

I made reservations for my birthday brunch at Le Petit Paris thinking it would be nice to splurge a little on brunch with the girls for this special occasion. I was so disappointed.

Food: The selection of food was scarce. There was supposed to be a cheese board but all I saw was an empty board with some bread next to it. I couldn’t create my own Benedict because there weren’t any English muffins to be found. You would think that if you were paying this much for a brunch buffet, they would make sure to refill the stations and have a wide selection of food. The food that I ended up eating was mediocre. The food was cold and some items looked like it was sitting out for a long time. The pastries were not fresh. There were melted desserts out on the table. In my friend’s words “the best item they had out for the buffet were the gummy bears.”

Atmosphere: The place itself was very cute. Lots of opportunities for photos. Nice color scheme and vibe. However the temperature of the dining area was incredibly warm!!! You would think that if they were going to have food sitting out that could spoil, they would turn on the AC. My friends and I were uncomfortable due to the extreme heat.

Service: There seemed to be very little staff working during the time my friends and I were there. I expected quality service but instead we got placed in a room with some food put out on tables and we were off to fend for ourselves. One my friends had to look for her own utensils because none were brought out for her. The lack of service may also be connected to why the quality of the food was so poor.

Overall I would not recommend this place. I left the restaurant feeling hungry and hot and with a big fat bill.

I've been here before just for tea and pastries and I def wanted to come back for dinner. I finally was able to go for dinner with my husband. It was awesome I loved it. The decor was beautiful the ambiance was lovely I def felt out of place but loved every second of it. We had the ceviche which was delicious for the appetizer and than had the truffle pasta. The experience alone of having it beinf cooked tableside was amazing. It was delicious it was very rich so if you aren't a fan of rich food don't get it but that is in no way saying it wasn't delicious cause it was decadent. My husband got the prime rib which was cooked to perfection, it melted in your mouth. We ended our night with a chocolate souffle which was to die for, it just needed more ice cream. I would def come back again for a special anniversary. Must go for the experience of fine dining.

Great dining venue, with good ambience and exceptional Maine lobster dish. Beyond steam and butter, grilled and savory. Great service, would be excellent if the inventory of champagne are properly maintained. Oh yes, try their St. Germaine. It’s really good.

It was our first visit and we will return. We found everything about Le Petit Paris very enjoyable. Our server was attentive and very friendly. The food was outstanding... from the appetizers to the main entreé to the dessert. Wonderful ambience... lively but not loud... or quiet but not dead! Getting there was easy and we look forward to our next visit!

Beautiful restaurant! Very comfortable and lots of cool places to sit. Gorgeous building in a fun part of DTLA.
Staff was lovely!! So refreshing to be greeted by a welcoming and friendly person. And she was French!
The Sunday Brunch is gorgeous — lots of choices — it’s not cheap so come hungry. Coffee is excellent!
My only complaint: no refills on coffee. It’s all brewed thru espresso machine so it’s fresh every time but — you have to pay for a cup every time. For that kind of brunch — it’s kind of annoying.
Also some of the dishes need to be heated — this is nit picky but the croque monsieur was room temp / cold and not really edible. We got there at 10:30 so it was probably fresh but - cold. But most things were tasty and fun! I’d go back because of the beauty of the space and friendly staff.

The server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The place was dim-lit, super romantic, and I loved the celebrity art on the walls. We ordered the escargot, prime rib, sea bass ceviche, famous pasta and another meat dish. It was ALL delicious. I highly recommend you share the food family style to really get your money's worth. Even the free bread was delicious. The only thing I was disappointed in was how slow the service was. From ordering, to getting our food, to getting our checks, etc. everything was at a snail's pace. Our reservations were at 745pm and we didn't leave until 1030pm.

This is a beautiful restaurant, with a staircase from the 1920s era reminiscent of the Titanic, and offering some of the finest French food at a very reasonable price. We had the seabass and it was one of the tastiest preparations of fish I have ever had. Our table was upstairs in a quiet alcove, that overlooked the rest of one of the prettiest restaurants in all of DTLA. Highly recommend for delicious food and a lovely setting.

The food was delicious!! The service was a little lacking. Our server never took our drink order. We actually had to order through the water server. Then when we had the rack of lamb served (table side by their design) the Carver was obviously new and did a horrible hack job on our rack. Pieces varied from 2" thick it barely 1/2" thick. It was overall delicious but I am tired of walking into these restaurants that think money and service have to be represented on the outside....and that's exactly how it felt with this service. The flavor of the food honestly saved this review.

We have eaten here several times and it is one of our favorite restaurants. There is so much by way of good food, well-prepared, that it is hard to choose. We love the onion soup and the escargot. But all of the appetizers are wonderful. The same with the entrees and desserts. This time, instead of sharing dessert as we usually do, we all wanted an entire one for ourselves. We had creme brulee, floating islands and crepes suzette and we loved them all. The atmosphere is very nice as this may be one of the most beautiful restaurants in Los Angeles. The only negative thing this time was the service. Our waitresse was not up to standard. In the past, the service has been terrific but his time it was a little less than desired.

We really enjoyed Celebrating 2 Birthdays by, having Sunday Brunch here. The Food was great, as was the Service.
This place is in an Amazing, 100 year old Building. They have Renovated the Lobby in something Spectacular.
There was easy parking across the street and they were very accommodating with My Mobility Scooter.
We will most certainly be back and bring Friends!

Sunday brunch. Excellent presentation and great tasting food. Not thousands of selections but well thought out mostly french inspired foods in each category. Plenty of opportunities to sample a wide variety of well prepared foods.
All drinks were extra. Valet parking at front door.
More costly than a local “all you can eat” but a better buy of in house higher value prepared dishes that will please the eye and palate of most anyone.

We ate this course meal for Dine in LA.
From Appetizer to main meal and lastly desert, we waited more than 2hours and half.
Food was not great, we got the lamb dish and this was grounded deep fried. I had stomach problem after.
May be lamb chopped meat were not fresh at this moment. Anyway this is 2nd time visiting this restaurant and 1st time we loved. 2nd time regret.

May be not to visit here for Dine LA season.

Unfortunately this is one of those places that hyped up but not meeting/delivering the standard. Ordered the cheese wheel truffle pasta, super salty. The beef tarter was sour due to excessive use of vingar. And the overall service was very rush. Felt like they just want us to get out ASAP.

Lovely space but I was underwhelmed with the food and our server was pretty horrible. She stopped by to see if we wanted pepper on our salads and we didn’t see her again until we were finished with the main course and then only because I grabbed another server and asked him to get her. The food was OK. For the price point it should have been more inspired. All in all it was pretty bland although the presentation was elegant.

The service and ambiance was great. The servers, though not very knowledgeable about the items on the menu, were very friendly and attentive. The food, on the other hand, was below average. I ordered foie gras as an appetizer, and found it “refrigerated cold” on the first bite. I sent it back. Instead of making another fresh one they just reheated the one I sent back. Of course by then the foie gras was overcooked. They did offer to make another fresh one after I had complained. I declined their offer. Why couldn’t they do it the first time around? Other items were also average at best. This restaurant has so much potential if the kitchen is better managed.
