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.

The food was fine, but all the meat was over cooked and definitely not worth the price. The service was great though.

Sunday evening dinner at Le Petit was relaxing and the food was great. Try the chicken piccata. I know it sounds kind of basic, but the way they serve it is amazing. It's just the best. Also order the chocolate souffle. Served hot with accompaniments (whip cream, chocolate sauce, etc.). We loved it. Overall everyone was friendly, the service was good, and the food was terrific. Always consistently good and keeps us coming back.

We love Le Petit ! The food , the service, the ambiance..going there all the time and for really long time and apparently will do again and again: one of the best restaurants so far.
My favorite food:
I’d recommend an apple tart with vanilla ice cream ,never tried anything better anywhere. Crispy duck, lobster bisque and lamb shank…soooo good. Delicious! And the first time I tried a pumpkin ravioli yesterday and I guess it’s going to be my favorite too.

Great food, more expensive than it used to be, but good quality food. I had put a note in the OT reservation to bring a special dessert for my husband's birthday, but that was ignored, unfortunately.

Food was delicious. Restaurant was symbolic of French cuisine. Noise was a bit loud and difficult to have discussion. This type of thing cannot be controlled by the restaurant itself. Overall liked the experience but may not come again for a business meeting.

Stodgy old-fashioned, uninspired, typical French food. Heavy on the cream. We both had the Lobster bisque which was a light pink colour with only a hint of lobster flavour with no depth. The muscles were delicious, but also had a cream base and were served with droopy fries. The chocolate mousse was also so so, lacking a deep chocolate flavour. When the restaurant is full of people, expect it to become very noisy.

The Veal Piccata was outstanding! I had it with their wild rice instead of mashed potatoes and it was a perfect pairing! The beef carpaccio was a great starter and set the stage for a wonderful meal!

We like coming to Le Petit for a nice casual dinner. On our latest trip we enjoyed the Lobster Crepe and the Scallops for entrees. Excellent desserts--we had the decadent Profiteroles this time. Excellent service by a very knowledgeable waiter.

Always a reliable standby. Did notice food was good. Not great. I always remembered it better. Maybe quality has taken a COVID hit. While service was attentive- maybe a little too much

Had a fun night, didn’t have any bias one way or the other just wanted to try a French restaurant. The vibe was good the service was great, the food was delicious. This has a neighbor feel with a local crowd that’s come to know the quality and experience would be repeatable, Not exactly a Parisienne experience, more New York. A solid 4 stars but it’s a ways from a 5. You’ll have fun if you want a place to take your friends for that type of comfortable experience.
