We have been to Petit Chou many (over 50 times- at least 1-2 times per month) and were surprised ( and somewhat shocked) today to see the changes. The menu has been severely shortened, and many of our favorite items (e.g. Chicken salad) were gone. I ordered the new chicken tartine, and it was mediocre and tiny (half the size of the previous chicken salad tartine but the same price). The lettuce salad with it was tired and wilted.Why are they doing this? They had a great formula, and they are scrapping it. We will have to think twice before ever returning. Dr. R. Browne
We went for the fried chicken. Great taste. But it was served almost cold. And it is supposed to be hot. The service was very slow. Our server did not explain why. Just ignored us for long stretches of time.
I'm willing to try again, as I loved the taste of the chicken.
Perfect patio ambience -had live music playing on patio for Bastille Day it was great! This is our hands down favorite dinner spot in Indy - a real gem!
This is one of our favorite restaurants when visiting Indianapolis. The contemporary French food is excellent. Parking can be a challenge, but that's just the way it is. My wife and I enjoyed the special jumbo shrimp with seafood sausage, served over a special succotash. It was superb, and just the right serving size for summer.
Service was awesome and everything we had was delicious. Love the duck fat fries and cocktails!
Love the setting....good food although my order was slightly mixed up...service was prompt
Best dinner spot in Indy . A local treasure. Food is fabulous never disappoints , cocktails are A++, ambience A+++ our favorite spot.
Everything is fantastic we dine here weekly it's our favorite dinner spot. Outstanding food and staff and atmosphere.
hints of true French Cuisine. The freshest of ingredients and great seasonal specials. Was in town for a horse show. Enjoyed it so much decided to go back again the next night. Was not disappointed.
My husband and I chose Petite Chou for our wedding anniversary; this was the best dinner I have ever had. I ordered the halibut and it was delicisious.
Patachou is one of our favorite places to eat. I have a gluten allergy and they always have things I can eat. We tried the trout and it was excellent. The food is always farm fresh from local providers. And good people watching if you sit on the porch
I had the duck fat fries as an appetizer. I can't tell what is so special about them. The Rhone wine was excellent. Had the Croque Monsieur as an entree. It really is a Croque Monsieur. Seems a bit pricey. But I think it came with Gruyere Cheese which is really expensive in the US. So, overall a nice dining experience.
Love this gem of a place...high quality food, high value. The mussels were the best we've had in Indianapolis. Chicken crepe rich and such a neat change of pace. Farmstand salad and Omelette de Nuit all just perfect. The thick bread and creamy butter are a wonderful way to start the meal. Just perfect.
This place is our own little Parisian getaway right here in Broad Ripple. Love the food, Love the music, Love the service.
Patio dining -perfect patio w delicious food everytime!
Petite Chou was fantastic! The food was great as was the ambiance. We had pretty good service, but definitely spent quite a bit of time there waiting for the food to be prepared and served. Would definitely go again for certain!
Enjoyed a very tasty dinner with the right amount of attention by staff.
One of our favorite spots to go, Petit Chou has great service with a fun patio that you can watch the people walking on the canal. They have fried chicken nights that is wonderful, spirits and a nice wine list.
Have been here a few time. The food has always been good and consistent. High quality ingredients. The burger is one of the best. But all items on the menu are exceptional. This time the tomato soup was gone. I wish they would bring it back.
A good experience. The filet was excellent, but the duck just so so. Excellent service. A Broad Ripple vibe with French flair. We'll come again.
Nice ambience, very friendly personnel and very good service. For the food, it really depends what you pick and what you expect.
If you are looking for real French taste, you will be disappointed. Neither the "Steak Tartare" nor the "Croque Monsieur" have much in common with what you can expect to taste overseas. The only two elements of our dinner that reminded us of France are the bread, served with salty butter, and the wine, both very tasty. On the positive side, it did not take much complaining about the "Steak Tartare's" gross texture and poor seasoning to be offered to choose another dish, for free - this is part of why we rate the service as very good. Also, there are some tasty picks on the menu, like the "Crepes" - but again, do not expect French finesse.
A staple in Broad Ripple. Never disappoints! Great menu and friendly staff.
Dinner was great. Service great. Always good
My wife and I are locals and were there for Valentine's Day! We love French food and had a great time. This is a place you can go anytime...not just for a special occasion...and I encourage you to do so! The atmosphere is really great and during warm weather the patio is the place to sit!
Cauliflower Steak was amazing! We had the Pavlova for dessert. It was hands down the best dessert I've had in years! Very good service. Highly recommend this little gem!
We went to Petite Chou specifically to get their cheesburger and a chicken dish only to find out that the menu they offered was for valentines day week and none of the regular items were available.....we left. Might have been great if you were going for valentines day but that seems like a very narrow crowd to be chasing for an entire week.
Amazing food and service was even better! Was my wife's birthday and wow corner table with candlelight and bottle of wine wow!
I have eaten here several times. I am looking for a little more variety on the menu. Food is just OK. Wine list has some neat, obscure wines. It appears they do not have enough waiters for the business they're doing.
It was a great experience with my girlfriend! The restaurant was lovely. It felt like we were in a cozy restaurant in France. I would highly suggest!
We were greetly warmly and quickly when we walked in. Our special occasion was mentioned right away as we had it on our reservation notes. Décor is very nice and food was fantastic for everyone in our party. We were not hovered over, but were attended when needed. Would go back a million times again!
I have read negative reviews of this fine restaurant and am baffled. We have always had great service, great food, and good ambience. This is an A list establishment.
Absolutely perfect! Seriously one of the best meals I have had in a long time. I would highly suggest you try this along with the other Patachou spin-offs.
Try the specials...a wonderful, lovely place for a light or hearty dinner. We enjoyed the Chicken Paillard, Omelette de Nuit and the special...indescribably delicious. Attentive service--and very reasonably priced. Can't wait to return.
The Mushroom appetizer was great! Chicken Crepe was good. The Sauce in the crepe wasn't as good as I thought it would be.
Food was OK, service slow, interesting and fairly priced wine list. Not many other options if you want French food in Indy.
The plates for two with wine pairings was simply the best meal we've had since I can't remember when! Simply delicious.
Girls night out was very enjoyable. The staff was very amiable.
Chicken club was served with cold toast and dry chicken.
Mac and Cheese is very good, though, but not good enough for another visit.
I very much like Petite Chou (though I miss the one at Clay Terrace dreadfully), and our food was delicious as always. The Fois Gras Tourchon is frankly the best in the city and the mushroom duxelle are fantastic.
Plus I love, love, love that my dog is welcome!
Outstanding food in freshness, taste, presentation. Outstanding service in Indiana/French bistro setting. Perfect portions of food and wine. Forget any negative reviews from nitpickers. This is not the French Laundry, folks
