Bland food well served
From the moment we entered to the moment we left it was perfect!! Excellent service from the bar to the table!! The food is perfectly portioned with fantastic flavors all around!! The wine is delicious and the pairings spot on. A beautiful date night!! And the 5-6 cocktail hour and specials at the bar are truly a happy hour!!
My husband and I have dined at Petit Louis many times and always had good, even great, experiences until this past Sunday evening. Had I known it was Winter Restuarant Week, we'd have stayed home as Restaurant Week nearly always means amateurish-to-awful food and service at any venue. However, to our surprise, your Restaurant Week fare looked very appealing, given that it consisted of "regular" menu items, so we decided to give it a try.
Things started right off on a sour note. When we reached our table, our server asked us how we were doing, and we said "very well, thanks." He seemed very put off by our response and huffed "I expected more!" quite loudly. Probably a lame attempt at a joke - actually, beyond lame. Cutesy isn't a good look.
Our appetizers were tasty, although mine (the eggplant) was just barely lukewarm. I didn't say anything to our server since the restaurant was extremely busy and that dish doesn't need to be very hot; it still had lots of flavor, as always. My husband said his entree (veal) was excellent. My salmon arrived stone cold and neither it nor the mashed potatoes and vegetable puree it was perched atop had any flavor whatsoever. The whole thing had probably been sitting on the plate for 15 minutes or more. Our server offered me trout almondine as a replacement, which sounded lovely, except that it arrived too hot and absolutely drenched in butter and salt. Oh, and when he delivered it, our server leaned over my husband's shoulder and said, in a singsong tone of voice, "Fingers crossed! Hope she likes this one!" as if I were a naughty toddler.
We spoke to the manager, who offered me yet another do-over on the entree, but since my husband had been finished with his main course for quite a while, I declined. Our desserts were excellent and the manager brought us after-dinner wine on the house as well as comping my meal, but our experience was ruined by that point. It will be quite some time before we return.
This is my wife's favorite restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is outstanding.
We took advantage of the happy hour "Amuse Bouche," (hope I'm spelling that right), and that alone will send me back for another HH. FYI it is only from 5-6pm!! After that, we ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, even though is it sooo hard for me to NOT order duck confit - definitely the best item on the menu. I had an amazing potato soup (potato leek perhaps). My friend's lentil salad was delicious, although we did expect many more greens...
Always solid. Menu includes standards plus small selection of specials that add variety and reflect seasonal fare. Blood orange cake was lovely surprise. An easy, well-priced enjoyable meal.
A favorite alwys delicious. Lovethe roasted chicken for 2, order in advance.
This restaurant is cozy and quaint while still being active and fun to eat at the fireplace and the winter time is delightful and the food is excellent
I liked escargot de Bourgogne et surtout magret de canard but they should to be better if they follow the real french’s Recipes
The foods and service were very good, and there was good value as well. The servers kept our coffee cups full without having to crane one's neck and look for them. The bread is not as good as in the past, when the restaurant served small loaves or half-loaves. The current bread is not crisp or like French bread.
