Consistently excellent! Very accommodating of my friend’s dietary needs.

A nice treat on an otherwise housebound snowy day!

This restaurant would benefit from a prix fixe menu. In addition, the seating is nowhere near as elegant and comfortable as the ambiance of the rest of the restaurant.

We had to wait a bit for our table to be ready even with a reservation in place. However the bar had very good drinks and we didn't mind the short wait. Food was excellent and so was the service. It might not be an every day spot, but will definitely be in our mi ds for special occasions!

Our waiter was lovely (the same waiter I had the week before) despite only being at PL for three weeks.
I love that PL is a "local" restaurant with excellent food though I was not as overjoyed with my quiche as I had hoped. Still it was good and I ate THE WHOLE THING. Love the salad that accompanied the quiche. I will always recommend PL!

Everything was perfect from the time we walked in and seated right away to the staff waiting and cooking our meals. The only thing I would addd since it was Valentine’s Day would be flowers and candles at each table; but even that is picking the entire night for something to improve. A++ restaurant!!!

It was wonderful from start to finish! It was a prix fixe Valentine’s menu for $84, and the selections were excellent and everything perfect. Our server was helpful and knowledgeable, the food prepared and presented beautifully, and the wine paired nicely. Even the patrons were top notch...the folks next to us were so sweet and friendly! Can’t wait to come back to this French oasis.

We had a nice birthday dinner at Petite Louis. The food was generally very good. We had a salad and eggplant napoleon as appetizers, which were both tasty. I had the duck magret and my fiancé had the duck confit. The duck was delicious. My only criticism is that the magret was served with an overwhelming amount of lentils, that were coarse and not particularly flavorful. The desserts were excellent and definitely the highlight of the meal. We all shared a delicious bottle of wine from the extensive wine list.

We went for Sunday brunch the weekend prior to Valentine's Day. This was our first time at this restaurant. The entire experience was memorable, and we will definitely be going again. Parking was sparse at noon. The wine list is very extensive, the portions were what one would expect from an up-scale French restaurant, the service was exceptional. It's an excellent choice for a special occasion.

Everything was good, including the service. I wish they would offer bagueette -style bread with crisp crusts or return to their former small loaves; the current bread is not the greatest.

As we expected, Petit Luis was perfect in every way, with smooth service and superb food in a charming old building that looks inside like a cafe in France. At lunch time, the noise level is tolerable, whereas it is way too noisy - deafening - for me to enjoy an evening meal there.

We love Petit Louis. Great food, staff, and decor. On our recent visit, we had a delightful experience until a couple around our age came in with their daughter (age 10?) and the three of them proceeded to talk very rudely about us. We dress unconventionally and I guess our appearance was just too much for them. I'm writing this in the hopes that the parents will read it, although it probably won't change their minds about raising a child who is as horribly rude as they are. Darlings, please go to a chain in the suburbs if you can't handle seeing artists in a restaurant.

Oh well, at least the food and service were fabulous.

We were seated promptly and served promptly as well at our request because we had BSO tix. Food is always superior although a bit more variety wouldn't hurt. Nor would some more parking. We shall return!
