Petits Plats is a very pretty French bistro located in a town house directly across from the Woodley Park metro stop, the Marriott Wardman and Omni Shoreham Hotels. Step inside and you will find affordable delicious food in a very romantic atmosphere. On cold days, dining next to one of the 4 wood burning fireplaces is a nice touch. Summer time, enjoy the great view sitting outside in our private patio: watching the passersby on busy Connecticut avenue is a major amusement!

A good "go to" french bistro in the Woodley Park neighborhood. Good food, very good value and a good and reasonable wine list.

Quiet, hidden-in-plain-sight gem of a restaurant! Had an enjoyable, delicious meal with friends and were able to hear one another perfectly (such a rarity in this area).

Another great meal from Irish salmon to scallops and mushroom stuffed pasta followed by yummy desserts and cheese plates. Decent wine list too! Can't wait to go back!

This is perhaps the best meal I've had in Woodley Park. The menu is classic French. All of our dishes were well prepared. The service was a bit spotty, and while we LOVED sitting fireside, the restaurant needs freshening up.

Loved being in room with roaring fire on a chilly night. Enjoyed snails and venison, special dessert with molten chocolate cake rather pedestrian. Terrific service

I never take the time to write reviews, good or bad but this experience moved me to Act. Three dear friends went to Petit Plats for a special holiday meal. Everything was superb. We shared appetizers, two main courses and a dessert. The chef split all in the kitchen and the presentation was exquisite. The waiter was accommodating to our every request. With the roaring fire and a fine bottle of Sancerre, the evening was the special occasion we wanted

We had excellent food, including potato leek soup as appetizer, special of monkfish accompanied by vegetable moussaka, and wonderful floating island for dessert.
Chef was really on target that night! Wine list includes affordable choices, and service was
very accomodating. Will return!
