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 $39.95. A notable wine list and full bar give diners ample drink choices. Le Petit Restaurant is available for private parties.

Le Petite has become my favorite place in the Valley. Excellent cocktails, could have a bit more extensive wine list but ok for the size of the restaurant and French cuisine. Staff is very friendly and attentive and food is outstanding at a fair price. Love the coziness and amibiance.

One of my favorite restaurants in LA. Food is very good. I always get the mussels, the sauce is amazing. Also tried the apple tart for the first time and it was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Staff is friendly and took very good care of us. Thank you and I can't wait to come back next time I am in town!

Fabulous. All food even better than last visit. Excellent beef carpaccio, escargot and mini blinis with black truffle perlage. Excellent duck and pumpkin ravioli. Salmon very good. Grand Marnier and chocolate souffles Excellent and coffee was delish as well. Luxardo cherries would really top off Manhattans and Old Fashioned drinks better but they were very good regardless. Easy valet parking. Cheery crowd dressed casually to smart business casual.

Amazing birthday dinner. The food was top notch, the service was efficient and attentive without being overbearing.

We started off with dirty martinis and the fig and burrata salad. The presentation only accentuated the fresh and balanced flavors. We chose pasta for our entrees. My wife got the mushroom black truffle ravioli and I got the angel hair picante. Both pasta dishes were cooked perfectly and were both very flavorful even with a minimal number of ingredients. The restaurant was then kind enough to provide a birthday tiramisu for dessert!

Highly recommend this quaint bistro whose decor and ambience is very reminiscent of what you might find as you stroll down the streets of Paris. Will definitely be back!

We hadn’t been back to Le Petit Restaurant for quite a while, and were pleasantly surprised that it was just as good as it was several years ago. Delicious food, great menu and caring staff. We had the Lake Superior white fish and the fresh fig and burrata salad. Both were fabulous!

Food is extraordinary! Amidst all the fake "French" restaurants in Los Angeles ,Le Petit Restaurant is a jewel of a genuine Parisian bistro in Sherman Oaks.
Service is expert ,helpful and fast.

I wish I could give this place 5 stars. Our server deserves 5 , he was amazing and very attentive. sadly they messed up on our orders. my sister ordered the angel hair pasta and asked for Not spicy...( food comes out and she couldn't get past one bite) my friend ordered the Chicken Picatta and asked for no Zucchini ( food came out with zucchini) they are both allergic to these. however, the onion soup, the eggplant tart, the baked Brie, my wild salmon and my Friend's lamb chops were tasty and perfectly cooked! I was disappointed that the manager on site didn't come to our table after the two mishaps and check in with us.. oh and we were charged for the angel hair pasta even though it was returned full plate.. overall a 2.5- 3....

Fabulous experience at this intimate little neighborhood French restaurant. Love dining on the sidewalk Dash – felt almost like Paris were not for the frequent loud motorcycle passing. Could not have asked for more from a service perspective and our charming server.
Every dish we ordered from the wide ranging menu was excellent. I would return here for a wonderful every day meal as well as a special occasion. Kudos to the kitchen and entire staff at Le Petit.

I’ve been going to Le Petit for many years, it’s consistently is what brings me back. Decided to eat only appetizers, though, expensive it was most enjoyable—- I’d go just for dessert.

Excellent service. Good menu selection. Noisy inside when the restaurant is full. Quieter in the patio and in the area between the patio and the restaurant proper. Good wine list, decently priced.

I have been several times at Le Petite Restaurant, but I haven't paid attention to prices until last night. Four little scallops for 40 dollars (that was what my boyfriend had because the menu said Jumbo scallops but without how many scallops). I had a veal that was salty and little; I ended up hungry. Very disappointed
