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.

We were mid-week, and had a delightful evening (French with a bit of Italian and Belgian). Service was quite accommodating and attentive. Ambiance typical European, low-key, and possible to truly enjoy the meal and evening with not pressure to hurry the meal. José, the responsible head waiter, maître d'hôtel, was clearly on top of things. Recommended and to go back to.

Had a great time spending my birthday with my friends. I just wished the table they gave us wasn’t in the corner and we felt so crammed in. Food was delicious but was disappointed with the chocolate soufflé. I guess u hyped it in my head haha but over all a great experience. Must try!

The food is amazing but the service can be slow as they waitress would disappear most of the time and we constantly had to flag down the waitress or other service staff. They do get very busy and I would go back for sure yet hope the service improves.

A neighborhood gem. Small restaurant and no surprise as it is in the name, after all. So if you like tables far apart, this isn't the place. We got there very early practically when it opened, and in just over an hour it was absolutely packed. I highly recommend a reservation because as the maitre 'd said, "we aren't taking walk-ins anymore" - I think that is also because a favorite restaurant very close, perhaps a block away, closed. Bizou. Back to Le Petit. I had whitefish. It was served beautifully. I asked for no butter in the lemon, caper, butter sauce and they graciously accommodated me by using olive oil and it was delicious with the lemon juice and capers. My husband had the blackened salmon and it was served on a nice salad. I had a cesar salad and it was especially good. Sorry we didn't have time to try the chocolate souffle! Valet parking only.

We were celebrating a birthday. Food and wine were delicious. The service excellent. Sitting next to us was a WWII vet wearing his uniform and Silver Star celebrating his 101st birthday. His waitress interrupted everyone’s meal to announce his presence and the entire restaurant sang “happy birthday”! It made for a very special evening!

Unfortunately, I was not impressed with the food at Le Petit. We started with Ceasar salad and it was OK, but nothing special. I had the Crispy Duck for my entree and my wife had the Filet Mignon. My wife said the Filet was good but could have used more peppercorn sauce, my duck was not crispy enough and was fairly tough. We split a Creme Brulee for dessert which was pretty good. I like the ambiance and the service - I just expected the food to be better than what it was. Sorry, but I'm just being honest with my opinion.

Valentine's Day Dinner with wife was nice: Crispy Duck & Seafood Paella were very good. Was very disappointed that they did not have their chocolate souffle. Their bread pudding was horrid! Looked like a block of spam (& tasted like bread aggregate!)!!

This is cute little French restaurant with great food and great service. We had the Salmon, Rib eye and lobster crepe. All amazing and very delicious. Also had the angel hair and red sauce and I have to say honestly it was one of the best I have ever had. I definitely recommend this place. It's cozy and small so might be harder for larger parties.

The food is always top notch and reasonably priced. The service however is troubling. You have to wait forever to have your course plates cleared before the entree comes. The waiter takes your order and occasionally pours the wine. We know the issues and deal with it because it’s one of our “go to” restaurants on the Boulevard.

The service was okay, although it was difficult at times to find a waiter. The biggest issue was the steak that my wife ordered. It was basically inedible. Tough would be an understatement. When she did tell the waiter, he took it back and she ordered something else. We (me and another couple) were practically finished with our dinner by the time her replacement (salmon) arrived. Rather than receive any kind of a verbal apology, or the offer to comp her meal, the issue basically ignored. Very disappointing for a high-end restaurant. Not sure if we'll return, but if we do, I hope they will treat a serious issue with more than just saying "can we get you something else".

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 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.

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.
