We were celebrating some anniversary with my boyfriend at Petite Abeille at E20th street. Everything was absolutely fantastic, the service - amazing and food - great! The gem of the dinner was the chocolate mousse! If you go to this place, get the chocolate mousse!!
Finding a brunch location on a Friday isn't always easy. Petite Abeille is an interesting restaurant and I can safely say the waffles were light as air although somewhat chilly. Unfortunately one of the menu items wasn't available so one member of our party needed to find an alternate choice. The coffee was good. The restaurant was largely empty so we had good service. When caffeinated coffee was poured in my decaf cup, a new cup of decaf was promptly provided. The wait staff members were cordial and prompt.
Went back to Petite Abeille after a business meeting. Brought my staff with me. We all enjoyed the good food, fun atmosphere and good service. As usual, all food ordered was fantastic. Thanks for a great end to a long day!
The Pâte, mussels and chocolate mousse were excellent. They tasted like we were in a cafe in Bruges.
Casual feel but world class food. Mussels are extraordinary.
I am thrilled to have Petite Abeille as a short walk from my apartment, where I can meet up with friends or take visitors and know we will have an enjoyable evening with good food and drink.
I came here for lunch on Valentine's Day and was very pleasantly surprised. I was expecting the experience to be good, but it was great. My wife and I ordered two Belgian waffles and they were both very tasty (although a bit messy to share). I enjoyed the décor, the friendly atmosphere, and the outstanding service. It was nice to go at a quieter time (weekday late lunch) so that our server had time to tell us about the restaurant and the Belgian decorations.
I went there for the 1/2 price wine on Tuesday nights. Best deal, bar none! More than that, the noise was perfect for those of us who were out to have a leisure evening where we could talk without shouting.
3 of us came here 5:30 on a rainy Friday night; the place was almost full ! The food was good, the prices reasonable, and the service attentive.
This is a good neighborhood place. The steak frites was very good, mussels also very good and burger better than average. Lots of kids there at 6:30 so kind of noisy.
A step from coffee shop, a Belgian bistro. Lots of beer, though expensive beer. Burgers and stews very good. Excellent fries. Always busy.
The overall dining experience was great! We had the mussels for entree and the pate for appetizer. They forgot our onion soup, so we asked them to cancel that order--they apologized, but if it were anyone with less of a good mood they would have had an irate customer. The proseco was lovely. The lovely waitress was attentive most times...i would go there again for the mussels.
Quiet with about five tables taken. Omelette with side salad (nice mild dressing) and potato and waffle with strawberries and cream delicious. Would return.
Been to restuarant before, disappointed this time. Steak could have been better quality. Peach Melba dessert was very disappointing - canned peaches, melted ice cream, no almonds as indicated, and served with chocolate syrup.
The dishes were unremarkable to just plain bad. The calamari had a nice light crispy batter but was tasteless and served with tartar sauce. The durade was bland while the mustard seasoning for the salmon was overbearing.
Their key dish, mussels, were tiny and tough. To top that off, the seasoning for Moules Marinières (white wine celery garlic) and Moules Grand-Mère (creamy beer sauce, bacon essence) were identical except for 6 bacon bits?! Nevermind that they should be different, the alcohol wasn't adequately reduced and it just was not tasty.
Lastly, the waffle in the Gaufre Banana Split dessert was hard and dense. I can't decide whether frozen waffles taste better but I know that I won't be returning to this establishment.
Enjoyed scrumptious salad at Petit Abeille, a most pleasant cafe. Tiny (silver dollar size) pancakes were a wonderful completion to a lovely meal. Tables are set outdoors on the sidewalk. Many of the indoor tables share the ambiance of a sunny afternoon. Many Belgian specialities on the menu.
you can always count on great food
Delicious Belgian fare. Phenomenal mussles and frites paired perfectly with their selection of beer or wine.
We went with a group of 7 (most friends/family visiting the city and they loved the place). Table was ready on time. Food and ambience were excellent. Service was good. Recommended: cheese croquettes and any mussels. Great beer selection.
The mussels were good, the french fries were good, and on the multiple occasions we've been here, everything's been good. Except the beer. The beer is GREAT. My favorite style of beer is Belgian, and this place has a solid selection of beers along that line.
