You have to be OK with sitting close to neighboring tables and the noise that comes with hard floors and hard ceilings, but for a great French bistro experience, it is perfect. Take your time and pace yourself. Serving sizes are reasonable for a multi-course, and they do desserts that are... well, true to their French cuisine. The offer a great wine list and the recommended pairings are usually spot on. It is definitely a neighborhood favorite!

Recently had lunch there with three colleagues. Great menu, service, and terrific food. I used to avoid this place because it was so noisy that it was difficult to maintain a conversation. We asked for a quiet table and cam after 1PM for lunch and it was a delightful experience. I had the salmon salad which was extremely good.

Great and authentic French food in a lively bistro setting. On a budget? Have French onion soup at the bar. Special date? Tables in quiet corners are available. Celebration? Large parties accommodated with advance reservation. The wine list is outstanding. The chef is creative. The service is impeccable. Go, go, go! :-)

Petit Luis is a superlative. We come here every time we are in Baltimore and wish it was in our hometown. The food is sumptuous; the wines selection and recommendations are amazing; and the service is welcoming, professional, and polite. I have celiac, and they always have or adapt selections that accommodate my needs. This is a restaurant of distinction that should not be missed.

This was our second trip to Petit Louis Bistro and we were with friends. We shared a couple of appetizers and each had different main courses - all of which were excellent. The level of service was excellent as well, including our waiter, wine specialist, and general constant attention to our needs.
We even convinced our friends to try the Escargot and I think they are new fans.
Can't wait for the next trip to our favorite french restaurant.

The staff was excellent! Amazing how they moved like clockwork while the restaurant was so busy. Food was excellent! We had the French onion soup, veal and duck. Wine recommendations were perfect! Dessert was chocolate mousse and crepe brûlée. Delicious! We left full with left overs. Now, it’s my favorite restaurant and I had only been there twice before in 30 years!

I have had dinner with clients at Petit Louis twice. The service is prompt and charming and the food is delicious. Really great value for the price. It's not really a "business" place but rather a great place to bring clients with whom you have a closer relationship as well as family/dates. (Not really a place for kids, at least in the evening.)

Petit Louis is a favorite. Trout and swordfish were repeatable. Apple tart always shines. A sancere (Girard) I recommend. Service was abysmal. Innatentive and perfunctory. We will be back. Our guests will not

We invited friends to join us and wondered why we haven't been back in so long. The place is so cute and cozy. It felt like we were out of town in a cool city, perhaps France? I'm sure that was their goal. Anyway, the prices on the menu seemed reasonable. We said to ourselves, "we are definitely coming here more frequently"! The items sounded delicious, too. The issue came when our food arrived. Nothing was wrong and we had no reason to complain, however, the portions were super small. I ordered the Sweet Breads and the Magret Duck, both of which could have been cooked a little less done. The waiter said the duck would be prepared medium rare unless I wanted it cooked more. I told him, medium rare was exactly how I like it. I would say it was more medium. I ate it and it was perfectly adequate. I just expected more. More flavor and quite honestly, more food. I felt a little embarrassed because I lead my friend to get the Skate. He is a very tall man and I imagine can eat a decent amount of food. The amount of food on his plate was so small, I worried we would have to stop somewhere for dinner on the way home. I will say the service and atmosphere was outstanding. So...if you are a small portioned eater, like we all should be, this is a great spot.

Always a wonderful meal!
The onion soup was deliscious as were the mussels, tender and not over cooked in a very tasty sauce. My companion had the “civilized lunch”, wonderful value.

The skate meal I had last month was probably the best fish dish I have ever had. The same meal I had this time was one of the worst! The fish was over cooked and the sauce was tasteless and had separated.
