Le Petit Restaurant
We had an amazing experience at Le Petit Restaurant. Our server was fantastic. He was attentive and helpful. We ordered the onion soup, lobster bisque, frog legs, mussels, steak, and grand marnier soufflé. The soups were out of this world. The frog legs cane in a broth that we stopped up completely with the bread that was served. It was flavorful and rich and the frog legs themselves were sumptuous and tender. The mussels entree was huge. It came with an entire basket of frites that I couldn’t possibly finish. The broth for the mussels was exquisite and the mussels themselves were done perfectly. The only complaint I would have is that my husbands steak came out more well than he asked for. He ordered medium rare and it arrived medium well. We finished our meal with a delectable soufflé. Despite the overdone steak, we would certainly go back!
Less expensive than a trip to Paris...and friendlier service!
love the souffle. keep going back mainly for the chocolate souffle but the lobster crepe and french onion soup were good too.
Really quaint - beautifully lit - terrific food and service. See you soon!
We love this restaurant. Excellent food and service at a reasonable price! Never had a bad meal here. Escargot are delicious. Great Salmon dish. Excellent filet mignon. Love the fries. One of our very favorites. Cute bistro atmosphere.
Nice place, perfect food, fast service and will recommend it.
The restaurant is small. But they make it intimate rather than cramped. The staff are friendly, courteous and attentive. The decor is charming and warm. The food is delicious.
The food was expertly prepared and authentic. The service was very good. We highly recommend this restaurant. We have been here many times and it is consistently good.
Only drawback is that the existence of valet parking is not that visible. I did not know where I could pull up in order to relinquish my car to the valet.
The rib-eye was cooked perfectly as was the Angus burger, and the Onion soup was excellent. Service was wonderful too.
We love this place! Food is always excellent, has a great vibe, all of the waiters are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Menu is great, covers all of the (French) bases. We haven't had a bad meal here. Even the garnishments, such as the small salad included with the crab cakes, are excellent. An unpretentious place to have a very nice French meal
2 top tables so close together . Hard to converse
Food was average Service was spotty
Cozy dining room. Great food. Service was good and not rushed. Really had a French feel.
Excellent meal. A little noisy and tight seating.
Just ok wasn’t as good as expected.
Gourmet food, served with care and the highest level of professionalism and kindness, in a beautiful setting. The perfect spot for people who like to have a conversation over a delicious meal. At this restaurant you will actually able to hear each other.I'd like to give it my highest recommendation.
favorite spot! Everything is beyond amazing.
Excellent service...good food. Good prices!
They were overbooked with reservations. People waiting were crowded into a small space in the entry, right next to where we were eating. Very uncomfortable and the waiters could barely get through the crowd to serve us.
Food was good, as always, but a very uncomfortable dining experience
We all loved our dinners!
This was our 2nd visit and may be our last. I again ordered duck and it was quite dry and not particularly tasty. My girlfriend ordered the veal chop. She liked it, but I didn’t think it was anything special. The server was very attentive and the maître d’ was very nice and personable. What was particularly off putting was the concentration of tables and the resulting din. For a French restaurant, the absurd number of tables and high level of noise was ridiculous.
We came on a very busy night, making it busy and loud. . We love the staff, but with every table booked, the service was slow. Our meat was also over cooked. But they are such a friendly crew that we overlook imperfections—although harder to do with prices going up.
Pretty great. Justin was a great server. Thanks!
Traditional French bistro food plus specials. Generous wine pours. Great service but not intrusive or snobby.
Excellent food and superb service
Le Petit Restaurant has upgraded its menu and food preparation making it a great French Bistro - honors reservations and quiet table in corner. Lamb Shank was outstanding and Filet at Pauvre was terrific. Topped off with a chocolate soufflé with all the fixings - great again Go GO
Always great. Wait persons outstanding. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant
Food and service were excellent, and it was quiet enough to talk. Really enjoyed the foie gras, French onion soup, duck confit, and crepes Suzette. Only negative was the strange choice of music, which didn’t fit the ambience and was jarring at times. Go for Piaf, Azanvour, and classical, or or at least Sinatra, Jazz!
Such a cozy atmosphere, feeling of old Europe, delicious food.
We have always loved Le Petit Restaurant. It was a little noisy Saturday night, but the food was great.
Excellent food in lovely, cozy surroundings. Attentive servers, good prices, a wonderful evening.
We enjoyed ourselves here as the food was very good
Food and Service was excellent . Very Good selection of wines...Fun place for Dinner with Friends.
We went to Le Petit Restaurant for our NYE dinner. While the restaurant was very busy, they did their best to get us seated and served quickly. The food was excellent, as always, and the service was fairly attentive, especially since the place was packed.
We continue to go here 3-4 times per month. The food, service and ambience are at the top rung of the ladder. Try the Sunday Brunch. It is not a buffet. However, it is excellent and an extremely good value!! In fact, it is the best sit down restaurant value on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks and Studio City IMHO!!!!
Lre Pdetit is an excellent restaurant. Jay, the owner is always present and makes sure that everything moves efficiently, including reservations on New Years eve. The menu is continental with dishes representing various cuisines, including French, Italian, and American. There are very few places left that offer the variety and well prepared dishes. We go to Le Petit several times a yer with friends, and we are never disappointed
A delightful New Year eve dinner!
Unfortunately the first time we went was New Year's Eve. Having been in the restaurant business I know that it's not fair to judge a restaurant on that night. It'w why we typically don't go out to dinner on NYE. But we did this time. We did the 6:45 seating hoping it wouldn't be too crazy. Instead of being seated in the festive, decorated portion of the restaurant (a long wait if that was what we wanted), we were given a table in the enclosed, undecorated patio out front. Here are the pros and cons:
Pros: Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Because of this we will go back and try it again.
Cons: They overbooked for NYE. There was a line of people constantly waiting for their table that ran directly behind our table. Naturally they were festive and constantly talking. Unfortunately it didn't make for a romantic evening for my wife and me. Reminded me why we normally choose not to go to a restaurant on NYE. In addition, the line often extended so far that it resulted in the door to the outside staying open. So much for the enclosed patio. It was freezing (for California) that night and our table was right next to the door. In addition, as it is a French restaurant, I had been thinking of onion soup all day. Unfortunately for me, instead of bringing the soup out with the salad, the waiter brought out our entrees. So no soup.
As stated, we will try the restaurant again and will keep our fingers crossed for better results.
