As usual everything was wonderful except for the loud people at the next table. They were then joined by people from the bar and it got louder. They were not bad people, just loud.

The only bad thing I can think of about Petit Louis' is the noise level on a busy night. That's the only reason for not giving ambience the highest marks. Other than that, it's a fabulous place with wonderful food.

I've never had anything less than a perfect meal, eating here. My wife and I come here for basically all of our special occasions, as it's our favorite restaurant. Zero complaints. Try the Magret De Canard, it's incredible!

My Sunday brunch experience was very interesting, but not in a good way. It was not my first time dining at Petit Louis, yet experience was very disappointing this time. First waiter was very nice (to my neighbors), had conversation explain a menu, then turned to my table pore glass of water (not saying a word) and disappear. Second was a young lady, extremely short in dialogue, did not tell us about daily specials, bring two cups of cappuccinos with 10 min difference (ordered at the same time).
I finished my dish first (my plate was empty) and my friend still enjoyed her soup, when third person came to our table and asked if she is done when she was literally with a spoon in her mouth! He did not even look at my plate that was clearly empty! Why??
It was one of my favorite places in Baltimore, unfortunately not anymore

Second visit. This time for husband's birthday. Food was exceptional. My husband felt it necessary to mention that the coffee equipment was not being cleaned properly, as one could taste the bitter coffee oils left behind. The constructive criticism was not well received. "I rinse it myself every evening!" One doesn't rinse coffee oils away. They are tenaciously stubborn to remove and need to be steamed away. This was a minor complaint in an otherwise heavenly visit. It wouldn't have been worth mentioning had the food not been spectacular. By all means go! But if you're picky about your coffee have the dessert wine with your mousse!

I love it there, it is my ‘go to’ for special occasion or just casual dinning. Everything is excellent there, I just wish they would bring back the original Profiterole’s. It was my absolute favorite dessert and they changed it :(

This was my husband's and my first time at this restaurant, and we will definitely be returning. The ambiance is wonderful--felt like we were in France. It was our anniversary and they sat us at the corner table that felt intimate. My husband had escargot appetizer which was enjoyed, but we both agreed my Gravalx house-cured salmon was a dish we would have again. The cassoulet was a special, inspiring and very well done--truly the best I have ever had. We both had desserts, chocolate mousse and profiteroles, both worth ordering. If you like French cuisine, this is a place to go!

Service and food were outstanding as always. Sunday nights are not too busy, so the noise level was manageable. This remains one of our go to neighborhood favorites. I almost always have the duck confit and my wife has the smoked salmon.

We love Petit Louis; it absolutely takes us back to our Paris days. So when we adecided to have a Croque Monsieur we expected the best. Sadly, it was awful. Fried bread? Only a hint of Bechemel sauce, burnt to a crisp on the outside? Hardly a sliver of cheese? I imagine we’ll return, but it will be a while- and we will NEVER order that “classic” again.

As usual, a great dining experience.

I would recommend s more value emphasis on the wine list---with more selections in the under $30 per bottle ranges. There are tons of great red and white value wines available in the marketplace----and Tony Foreman certainly knows how to find and select them. I urge him to do so.

Petit Louis was everything I would have hoped. From arrival to departure the service was warm and consistent. The food was expertly prepared and wonderful. The experience cannot be beat. We were very pleased on this rainy February Sunday when we visited, and left with a bit of sunshine provided by the wonderful staff at Petit Louis.
