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.

Food was mediocre. We had the French onion soup which was okay. Escargot was not that great. The Chilean sea bass was bland. I have had better overall. Would not go back.

The food is fine quality..... It was wonderful.
My server was a bit busy & did not hear me several times.
I would say something but she would turn to the other table & totally ignore my request. :( no dessert.

The service here is fantastic. Best restaurant experience in a long time. The staff were so thoughtful and took care of us. A lovely experience for a date night or a small group of friends.

Save room for the chocolate soufflé. It's worth it!

We like this French restaurant for its excellent food. On our last dinner, we enjoyed Lobster Crepes and Crispy Duck for our entrees, which were preceded by an excellent carrot ginger soup. We had a warm apple tart with ice cream for a delightful end to the dinner. Our waiter was friendly and provided very good service. The room was a little noisy since it was quite full. We hope to return soon!

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!
