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 $45.95. A notable wine list and full bar give diners ample drink choices. Le Petit Restaurant is available for private parties.

We eat here for special occasions and it never disappoints! It is truly a hidden gem! Besides the fact that the food is consistently incredible…the dining experience is always fantastic. The staff are always welcoming, helpful, friendly and professional. The ambiance is lively, but not too loud that you can’t have a conversation. And the food…did I mention it’s incredible? Best chocolate soufflé in the city in my opinion…and less expensive than the fancy French restaurant a few blocks away. Please do yourself a favor and go here for a real treat!

Celebrating a friend’s 81st birthday at one of our favorite restaurants. Food was delicious as always and the service outstanding. A lovely, cozy French restaurant and part of the fabric of Sherman Oaks.

The only reason for the lower star count was due to the amount of sand in the black mussels.
At least half of them had a bit of sand in them which made the experience not as enjoyable!
I have had them many times and usually a couple will have some residual sand but last night it was a bit overwhelming how many had sand in them!

Wow. Why haven’t we been here before? The food was amazing. We are so happy to have found this little gem. Started off with the bistro salad and beef carpaccio. Entrees we’re the salmon and the crispy duck, my partner said the duck was the best he’s had. I have to agree as well with the salmon, best I’ve had. Finished with dessert, we had the apple tart (I would come back just for this), th chocolate soufflé and the bread pudding. All were outstanding, but the apple tart took the gold medal! We will be back

Since we went early (6:30 p.m.) to be home in time for the new year to begin, there was not very much of a crowd. Therefore the service was outstanding, and they seemed to have a lot of take-out orders being picked up, which did not disrupt the servers at all.

An outstanding menu and the food is delicious. Highly recommend the lobster bisque with the warm french bread. The service was wonderful and people were warm and welcoming. Great for a date night.

The salads were amazing and I loved the chicken Picatta. The lobster bisque that my son ordered was not to his liking. We order it a lot in restaurants so I'm not sure what was off but he's 6'8 and only took a few bites. His blackened salmon was almost flat (and dry) so another disappointment for him. My other son loved his filet and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the Chilean sea bass. The service was impeccable. Great staff! Overall, a wonderful family dining experience.

They were understaffed. Service very slow We sent back our onion soup which tasted like water and my duck was over cooked and dry. My friends had mussels which were fair. Not going back.

Our server was not very attentive to us (2 women in our late 60s). My drink order was not right, and we kept having to wave the server down for any attention to what we needed (ordering dinner, dessert, getting our check). The best service we get is from Peter, but he was off that night.

The food is the "outstanding" feature of this restaurant. The most overt downside is the noise level inside. However, the food is a 5/5 and the variety of choices is an added plus. I had the Monday/Tuesday lobster special and it was a dish I would order over and over, it was that good. The restaurant is small so I would phone ahead for reservations.
