French
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.

Our server, Peter, for the evening was delightful. His assistants were also very good. My partner for the evening had salmon that was not done quite well enough for her taste. The staff worked to accommodate her. I had the white fish and it was delicious. A very nice evening though a bit load at times.

Le Petit Restaurant is a delight! The food is delicious, the staff members are very polite and friendly, and the decor is warm and inviting. About the only thing that isn't perfect is the size of the tables (petit for sure!). I highly recommend the duck, lobster bisque and baked chocolate mouse.

Very enjoyable dinner at this comfortable French restaurant. I can recommend their lobster bisque if you want an excellent but rich soup. I enjoyed my salmon main course and my wife her crispy duck. We had a combination grand mariner and chocolate souffle for dessert suggested by our waitress and it was great! Very good service, too by the waitstaff.

Considering we haven’t been able to dine out for one whole year. Food was amazing. Our server Peter also made us feel welcome. We enjoyed every bite. The Duck, one of the best Lobster bisque soup, Asparagus soup very earthy and delicious. The Sea bass was so delicious. Top it with the Soufflé blanc. Night and money well spent. Will go back here.

Valentine's Day and 1st time dining here. High expectations were sadly not even close to met. Understanding the challenges of covid & the fact that the weather was not cooperating (windy & chilly), the restaurant decided to seat diners inside. While they didn't have diners shoulder to shoulder, it was still pretty tight, especially with all of the traffic of servers, food-runners, host directing people to seats, to-go orders & those using the restrooms. Just didn't feel at all comfortable in there.

We requested an outdoor table for a 5:30 reservation & they did seat us outside, so that was great. Space heaters provided enough heat for comfort from the wind & we were, quite literally the only diners outside for nearly an hour. Seated at probably 5:25.

We ordered a bottle of wine while we perused the menu and when we did order, at maybe 5:40, we both opted for lamb shank. "Sorry, we're out of the lamb shank." My wife then went for the lobster crepe. "Oh, sorry, we don't have any more of the lobster crepes." While she looked again, I opted for the crispy duck. Lo and behold... they were out of THAT, too! I asked how that could possibly be at the beginning of dinner service on Valentine's Day!? He said they'd gotten a ton of to-go orders and it was just out. Seriously. Seriously!? 4th choices were available.

We ordered 2 salads & an appetizer, app & 1 salad came, we were nearly finished and they brought another same app & same salad. Forgot to put 1 in. We just ate what they brought and cancelled the other salad.

Entrees took a while and, of course came out wrong. We ate them anyway, and server brought missing fries.

Dessert took a while, but that was expected as it was a soufflé.

All of the food was quite delicious.

All in all, we made the best of it and enjoyed the evening in spite of the issues. They had a 90 minute time limit for small parties, but obviously there was a TON of open space with indoor, so not an issue. 2 1/2 hrs later, we were finished.
