Diners can enjoy some of the most authentic French food in the valley when they visit Le Petit Restaurant. With the air of a bistro that has come straight from a Paris street, Le Petit serves French fare and adds its own California twist. The look and feel make it a great date spot that is conveniently open for late night dining. The interior is masked in an Art Deco decor, framed by high ceilings and filled with candle-lit and linen-covered tables, framed art adorning the colorful walls, white curved booths, and hardwood floors. The menu runs through a range of creative dishes, like the blackened salmon, grilled entrecote (rib-eye steak), escargot, herb-roasted chicken, and more, including daily specials. On Monday and Tuesday nights Le Petit offers a special 1.5 pound live Maine lobster, with soup or salad for $34.95. A notable wine list and full bar give diners ample drink choices. Le Petit Restaurant is available for private parties.

The best classic french food in the valley. Great service and very French ambiance. They really know how to prepare duck which is my favorite. It's wonderfully old fashioned.

Steak was good. Duck was very dry (for the 2nd time), and the beef bourguignon didn’t look or taste very good. Tuna Tartar was just okay as was the caprese salad. Chocolate soufflé was delicious.

Well, the eggplant tart was devine. The onion soup was good. The waiter's cologne was enough to gas me out of the restaurant. I have perfume sensitivity, but the waiter was nose blind and was so strong, that cologne was all I could taste for a bit. I hurried out. So that is the drawback for the restaurant.

We had a fine dinner here. I especially liked the lobster crepes and our Grand Marnier Souffle for dessert. Professional service, nice ambiance, and we hope to return soon.

We love this restaurant because it is consistently good. No matter what we order, it is delicious - cooked properly - and plated beautifully. The duck, the potato crusted salmon and the scallops are a few of our favorites, along with the onion soup, lobster bisque and pumpkin ravioli.

Charming classic French bistro restaurant with very good food. Seating is a bit tight and the restaurant is loud but is a personal family favorite. It's like being in Paris.

Staff was friendly and accomodating. Food was quite good. It was Saturday (6:30pm seating) and the room was HOT and LOUD. We were in a corner table and my husband and I were hoarse by the end of the evening for trying to talk with our friends across the table! Will go on a weekday next time!

Le Petit was amazing. We went for New Years and it was a great celebration. The food is fantastic and actually very reasonably priced compared to most French Restaurants I’ve been to. I had the lamb chops and they were perfectly cooked.

New Years Eve had a fantastic time. Our waiter Peter is like an old friend we happen to see all the time. Favorite neighborhood hang and has won BEST BLOODY MARY (by me) in LA besides Connie And Teds. I recommend. A New York City /Paris vibe right in Sherman Oaks.

We dined at 6:30. As the room filled up, it went from quiet to moderately noise, but the bigger issue was it got uncomfortably warm. Food and service were top notch, and it's a nice room.

Very nice French experience. Only drawbacks: very small tables, chairs not comfortable and tough to hear & speak across small tables. Still this is such great food and a positive energy location, so fun to be there. Rates high on food quality...everything was excellent from the duck to the pommel fries to the grand marnier souffle.

Always great. I love the duck. Monday's and Tuesday's they have lobster for $32. Delish. There were a lot of birthday celebrations. Wonderful waiters. $7. Valet.

Have eaten at Le Petit in the past the service was good and the atmosphere is quaint. However my chicken dish was very dry and not enjoyable. The Frites are better at other French establishments I have gone to. Given that, the bread is fantastic and the soufflé for dessert was excellent.

Monday and Tuesday are Maine lobster nights. $34.99. Can't be beat. So sweet. I usually order the duck...delish! They even start with a little amuse bouche. Perfect restaurant.

Have been to Le Petit many times and recently went on a Saturday night. It was packed and though the food was good, the service was not what we had experienced in previous visits.

I would recommend Le Petit during the week - we went on a Saturday night and you could not hear yourself talk.
Always good food and excellent service.

This is one of the finest restaurants in the San Fernando Valley. If one wants something that is not on the menu that can be made there, if the ingredients are on hand, accommodations can be made. I ordered a smoked salmon omelette for breakfast yesterday that is not on the menu. Done!

We also had dinner here on Saturday night. It is not unusual for us to come on back-to-back days because we love this place so much. Give it a try and I am confident that you will too.
