As always, the food at Petit Louis was delicious (although my companion would have preferred room-temperature, not cold, pate so it would be creamier). The service was attentive and friendly. The tables are situated very close to each other, but that, I understand, is the "bistro style."
Always a favorite
One of our favorite, and most frequented, restaurants in town. Genuine feel of a French cafe, authentic food, seasonally adjusted menu of always well-prepared French food. Tables are closely set, not necessarily ideal for quiet conversation. This is a happy place with lots of energy - not one of those stuffy, tomblike restaurants. People here are having fun.
Marvelous bistro meal on a Saturday evening. Lots of happy patrons, but beware the noise level means you almost have to shout to carry on a conversation.
Always nice to have dinner there, lots of customers and good ambiance, food, wine and service.
Our first time and we loved it. Warm, welcoming atmosphere and the food was prepared perfectly.
Wonderful, as always! Excellent food, enthusiastic and friendly staff, vibrant atmosphere. The favorite dishes of duck confit and steak frites were lovely, and I absolutely loved the Apple Festival menu.
Mousse au Chocolate and Pot de Creme to die for.
We will be back soon!
It's a energetic place with a very high noise level during peak hours. The food is fabulous, but even with a reservation you might have to wait. Our wait of 25' (with reservation) was made easier with a complimentary bottle while we waited. Nice touch! We would not return during prime dinner times since we just do not enjoy screaming at each other. Early or later times would be fine.
Too crowded. Too noisy. Desperate table flipping.
Terrible bottle of wine for $120 (after they did not have the first bottle of wine we ordered, which was only $70)! I tasted 4 "principaux": Fletan Rotie - very average; Magret de Canard - good ; Steak Frites - below average; Truite Amandine - very good! Excellent service!
We patronized Petit Louis for at least one meal every year for the last four years, unfortunately quality is going down.
Always a fantastic experience at Petit Louis!
Petit Louis is a jewel. Savor the moment of life and partake!
Delightful and authentic French restaurant. Food is excellent. Drinks are very good. Sommelier is a bit pretentious and moderately grumpy but c’est la vie.
Incredible as usual.
A light lunch (classic onion soup and eggplant napoleon) was the perfect way to decompress (deflate?) the day after Thanksgiving excess. The ability to carry on an extended conversation in this charming setting is always appreciated, but especially so after l the togetherness of a holiday gathering!
Family gathering of 5 made up of 2 generations of adults. Nice meal with fantastic waiter.
Every meal we have had there is excellent. The preparation is perfect every time. There is good variety on the menu and the specials are always interesting and varied. Very authentic French cuisine experience.
Stopped by here for soup and salad with my sister. The staff was still very friendly, despite us not ordering entrees or wine. The food was fantastic, and we both want to come back for dates with our spouses in the future. Now one of my favorite Baltimore spots.
Was enjoyable as always, it’s one of our favorite places!
Excellent service & delicious food.
The night we went service was very slow and inattentive. Waited about 20 minutes after we were finished our main course for the plates to be cleared. Saw our waitress only 3 times in an hour and a half meal. Food is good but not exceptional. 3.5 stars overall.
Excellent food, service and ambiance
Great food great service as always...really enjoyed my birthday dinner...
Lovely dinner as always. Went to get dinner and a bottle of the Beaujolais Nouveau.
Wonderful diner for the family!
Wonderful meal and experience.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner for four. My husband tried the special 3-course menu and loved everything on it- the delightful cauliflower/apple soup, the splendid venisson and the flavorful tarte tatin. I loved my brioche mushroom appetizer and moules frittes. Our dinner companions savored their dishes.
The Beajolais Cote d"Amour wine was the perfect accompaniment. Our server took good care of us and Marc offered us a warm welcome and made sure we enjoyed the wine.
Lively place, noise level a bit much for my ears but definitely THE place to go for great food and ambiance.
One of our go-to places when traveling to Baltimore. A true neighborhood gem.
Hostess was very rude. Probably because I walked in with two teenagers. They are well behaved, love food and often go to nice restaurants. We had a reservation and she just left us at the front. No reason to treat younger patrons this way.
Always good!!! Very busy, yet always manage to do a great job..
Service is always punctual and with a smile. As is the case for all of Tony Foreman ventures, the wine list is one of the best in town and the staff is very knowledgeable.
Lovely quiet corner. Lunch time special never disappoints and the mushroom omelette was delicious.
First time there and will go back. The food was very good and the ambience is great. It became a little loud as the restaurant filled on a Thursday evening.
At dinner this restaurant can be noisy, although still with great food and wine. We 4 went for lunch on a Thursday. It was not crowded, much less noisy than at dinner. There was a set price menu that was outstanding - excellent soup, main course, and dessert. Excellent value. Some wines at half price - and the wine list is terrific, as one would guess when Tony Foreman is involved.
I've eaten here many times and rarely have I been disappointed. I have also never ordered quiche here so I'm not sure if what I ate is typical of Petit Louis' quiche or just a bad batch. The consistency was more like flan & the crust was hard & crunchy, not flakey & buttery as I would have expected. The Celery Soup was outstanding!
We had not been to Petit Louis for a long time. A recent newspaper review raved about it, which prompted us to return. I ordered a beet with apple salad and halibut, which were two of the dishes mentioned in the review. My dinner was fantastic! I haven’t raved about a meal for as long as I can remember. And my companion’s meal was equally delicious. It won’t be long until we visit again.
Rally good good in the heart of Baltimore. Certainly coming back.
French bistro that excels year after year after year. The duck confit you fell in love with on your 10th anniversary is just as perfect on your 15th. Cassoulet in the winter months? Museum quality. Wine list - the only thing better is the strength and manner of the sommelier. Service? Other restuarants try to copy the service delivered here.
"Yes - it's noisy" but better .... "Yes - it's full of joie de vivre"!
Very good food, excellent service. Great wine list and selection of European beers. However, I do wish the restaurant would permit corkage. I would be happy to pay $25 for them to open a bottle from my cellar.
Petit Louis does not disappoint. The food and service were superb. We had a hard time deciding between some of our selections. Everything is sooo good.
We met friends for dinner at a mutually convenient location. Our Cahor wine and Manhattan were fine. The soup of the day, the beet salad, and green salad were, as usual, delicious. Three of the mains: duck, salmon, and eggplant were fine. My croque monsieu was poor; there was little flavor and too much grease. The dessert special was OK. At$75 per person, I look for more.
