Yummy as usual Paris in Glen Park!
I have always loved L'Petit! We ate there once a week when we lived in the neighborhood and now come back frequently even though we live in Marin. The food is as close to being in a Paris bistro as you can get here in SF. And the staff is amazing ...as professional and accomodating as you'll find in any restaurant; and truly friendly. We love L'Petit and will come back over and over.
Rack of lamb was disappointing. Did not taste very fresh . I usually enjoy my food here.
Still charming after all these years. A mainstay of the neighborhood. Good french food and a very reasonable neighborhood menu during the week. Great cocktails.
Staff are great, food very good. The staff here on this Saturday night were totally in sync. True term work in action. An enjoyable French bistro experience.
Went on a night when they have their special 2-item $20.18 menu. The fish was fine, but the pork was overdone and chewy, and the calamari salad very bland, not what I've experienced before. I would still recommend dining here, but ordering off the regular menu, which has been excellent.
We were excited to go back to Le P'tit Laurent after a great first meal a couple months prior. It was just as delicious and cozy as we remembered! We had to wait a bit despite our reservation because they were packed, but we didn't mind a bit because they were so nice about it. They even offered us champagne while we waited! We love this place :)
I love their escargot with garlic and pesto sauce. Got the best baguette to sop up all that sauce. The chocolate fondant and coconut sorbet was wonderful. Very chocolatey flavor. A big yum. Service was wonderful, and attentive and personable. Such a neighborhood place. Entree was the beef short rib. Two pieces, on was chewy and the other was tender. Very enjoyable dinner.
Laurent is amazing and his crew are professional and create just the right balance of service and relaxing environment. It is our neighborhood go to place to give us a treat!
Favorite restaurant in the city, the food is soooo good and the staff is very nice !
We had a lovely time and the staff made us feel extra special as we dined there for our wedding anniversary.
It’s always delicious and a delightful experience.
This is my 6th or so time eating here. I live in Philadelphia, but when I need a good place to eat when in San Francisco, I head for Le P'tit. Reasonably priced, excellent food. Very good cocktails and an excellent wine list.
Usually we like the food here and it is usually of good value. The wine list is good and not too expensive. They havea good selection of demi bouteille. The french onion soup was good as well as the mussels. However the rack of lamb was over cooked. The pain perdu is always good for dessert.
Loved this little hidden gem in Glen Park! Food was great and authentic, decor is charming and the service is great (I wouldn't call the service authentic French!). I will definitely be back when I get nostalgic for Parisian restaurants.
A neighborhood favorite. Not as good as in the past. They did not get order correct so we returned meal and started over. Salmon not done enough, but did not want to send back second time. Sat next to family with sniffling coughing kid. We will let this visit go and return, perhaps at later time when kids are in bed.
Beautiful menu, outstanding service.
Such a nice evening at this neighborhood gem. I went with two girlfriends and we had such a wonderful time. The owner was beyond gracious sending us out champagne after we were all done with our meal so we could continue our evening chatting away. Food and service was top notch. Cute place with good vibes and fun decor.
We are never disappointed by the food or service at this neighborhood gem!
We have not been to the restaurant in years. Overall, the food was ok to not great. The cassoulet (sp?) was sub-par . . .The supposed duck confit in the dish was not confit and could hardly be cut. The sausage did not have much taste, dish was too soupy and not thick/creamy and tasted as if assembled on the spot vs. cooking for hours.
The salads were over-dressed as well.
The value and prices were out of sync as well. We love French classic food but we will not be back to this place. Sad to say given it is on our side of town.
It was a mediocre approximation of French bistro food. Also pricey.
The atmosphere of this restaurant is great! You feel like your are in France. However, the food is mediocre. There are other French restaurants in SF that are much better. Will not go again.
The customer service was exceptional, but unfortunately the rack of lamb and special garlic shrimp dish was overly salty. Additionally, the seared Foie Gras was not cooked completley through, so it was a bit slimy. I have Foie Gras any time I can, so I am familiar with the consistency it should be. I think by reducing the amount of salt in some of the main entree dishes, will greatly improve the overall flavor. And this is coming from someone who loves to cook and loves salt! I should of said something to the server, but it was a festive occasion and husband and I didn't want to upset the guest of honor. We hope that you will take this constructive criticism in improving the flavor. Thank you again for the wonderful service.
There was a new dish on the Prix fixe menu rotation----Prawns in butter, garlic sauce.
Nice to be offered something new and different and this one was definitely a keeper.
Very friendly waiter who remembered us from a previous visit. Made us feel very welcome.
Food excellent but the way we treated on our 29th wedding anniversary was way above what we expected. Totally an awesome experience!
Great food, amazing value. The French Onion Soup is the best!
Le P'tit Laurent never disappoints. Such authentic French ambiance, in a comfortable, unpretentious manner! Food and service excellent, as always.
The servers are incredibly personable
We had a lovely meal and the staff was very attentive. We shared mussels with french fries- delicious, coq au vin-perfect comfort food. Classic french onion soup and the soup of the day cream of spinach were both great. The butter lettuce salad with walnuts and blue cheese was fresh and delicate. For dessert- profiteroles...it doesn't get much better. The wine list complements the menu and the after dinner Muscat was so yummy.
Le P’tit Laurent offers standard French brasserie fare. While the food was not objectionable in any way, it lacked subtlety and distinction. I have experienced far better in other brasseries, both within and outside of France.
On the evening I dined there, I chose the three course prix fixe, with a chicken dish as the main course. The chicken was bland, lacking both salt and spices and I ended up leaving some behind on my plate, which is rare for me.
The service was polite and nothing more. Pricing, especially for the prix fixe, is very reasonable for San Francisco dining.
This is a great neighborhood restaurant. Not easy to find good French food. The escargot could have been better. Maybe they are out of season.
First time we visited the restaurant after moving to the area. We were really impressed with the ambience, friendly service and food. Will definitely go back.
Bass wrapped around spinach with a white sauce was delicious - steak aux frites very ho-hum. Tarte aux poires w/ice cream and caramel drizzle was outstanding....tres authentic.
Wonderful experience. Good food, good service and great ambiance.
Great neighborhood restaurant. The staff makes you feel welcomed.
Love this place! Like being in France !!
Le P'tit Laurent exceeded our expectations. We'd read about it in the Chronicle, and have been searching out good, authentic French food ever since our first visit to France. This was, without exception, the BEST, most authentic French cuisine we've found outside of France!
Le Cassoulet toulousain Maison, with Duck confit, pork and toulouse sausage, was as hearty and flavorful as it was abundant. A wonderful dish! Likewise, the Moules Marinieres with fries, was wonderfully flavorful and delicious. The Escargots de Bourgogne were good, though the snails were on the smallish side, and the dish was overwhelmed by the pesto sauce in which the snails are prepared. Not sure we'd repeat those. The french wines by-the-glass were dearly-priced but delicious in all respects, and perfect compliments to the meal. The meals were so abundant we'd no room left to sample their desserts! A mistake we won't repeat on our next visit.
The service was impeccable. Attentive and alert to our needs, yet we felt neither rushed, nor ignored. The ambiance of the restaurant was lovely and homey. It felt very reminiscent of the better brasseries we've so enjoyed in , and outside of, Paris. We cannot recommend Le P'tit Laurent highly enough! We look forward to our next visit there.
Terrific as always from long time customer
But I do not like being forced to fill up this page by open table
Usually an excellent restaurant, but the night we went, the waiter was a bit off. He never asked my husband if he wanted more coffee, and he cut off the special description in mid-sentence, went to the kitchen and never came back to finish. He did take our order, eventually. This is not the normal EXCELLENT expectation I have of this restaurant. The food is delightful.
