Had been here once before on a business trip and it was great. This time no so much. Sea bass (I know I should have known better) was passed due and ammonia smelling - inedible. Ordered a bottle of wine and it turned into a fiasco. "We have that, we don't have it, here's an alternate - oh wait we do have it". It shouldn't take better part of half an hour to get a bottle of wine. After sending sea bass back, ordered a very mediocre wedge salad. Watered down blue cheese dressing. And, not ONCE were other patrons in party asked how is you meal? Not even offered any compensation for all the inconvenience. Failure in service.

We were seated immediately. I have a little problem walking and our table was just inside the door. Happy! Our waiter was charming and knew the importance of getting our drink order proper and quickly served. Several of the staff stopped be our table to welcome us as it was our first experience there and tell us about the place. I owned my own high-end restaurant in Plymouth, MN ( a suburb of Minneapolis) called IVORIES and appreciate the work that goes into the operation of a quality restaurant. It won't be our last visit.

We arrived 20 mins before our reservations, we was seated upon entering. We waited 20 mins before anyone ever came to our table to get drink orders. Then another 15 mins before our waitress Carla came to our table. She smelt so bad. The worse BO I have ever experienced. Every time she came to our table I had to hold my breathe and let my husband order for me. We got our food in a timely manner, but both plates were well over cooked. My husband sent his back. I did not because I was already disappointed with the service. The manager did comp one of our dinner plate but it still was not worth it.

This was a girls’ night out with friends who had not been together in months. We were seated immediately and allowed maximum visiting time. Our server was superb!!. Personable, funny, answered all of our questions and helped us order.
The food was excellent, as always. Dessert was delicious. We were allowed to talk and talk and talk and catch up. Lovely night out!

As always, food was excellent! Love the Caesar salad with either the grilled shrimp or salmon. Our server was very professional. The atmosphere is perfect! If you want it more quiet, sit in the restaurant where it is easy to hear. If you want more festive, sit in the bar where there is more action. Every time I have been to Petit and Keet, the owner is there and has come by our table to check on things. Very hands on. The key to a great restaurant.

Enjoyed the evening, overall the food was delicious and beautifully prepared. I would have preferred the special of blackened redfish to have been spicier. I found it a bit bland compared to the typical blackened fish. But if you don’t like spicy food, you will be very safe with this dish.

My grandson (17) and I went to Petit and Keet for a special occasion dinner. This was our first visit. We were greeted promptly by our server, Ashley. She was attentive, but not intrusive throughout the meal. We had steamed mussels appetizer - nice size serving, enough for both of us, flavor was slightly spicy and very good. For the main course, grandson had lamb chops and I had 6 oz filet. Both were prepared according to our preference. We shouldn't have, but we finished with desserts - cheesecake for him, chocolate creme brûlée for me. Both were excellent. During our meal both the owner and the chef stopped by to check on the service and food. Overall, an excellent experience for both of us.

We decided to eat at Petit & Keet for our anniversary, and while it was a lovely evening together, after as much hype I'd heard about the restaurant, we had a lackluster experience which I'm sure isn't characteristic of the restaurant in general.

Our server, Roger? I believe it was, was incredibly socially awkward, would often forget things we had ordered, and at the end of the night took our food to be packaged up to go and I assume just forgot it all together; we never saw it again... lol.

Food wise, I asked for a medium-rare steak, it was on the underside of rare, which normally I'm ok with were it not for my wife's pork chop to be flirting with being undercooked as well, especially at the bone. The poblano Mac and cheese is nothing to write home about... cavatappi pasta with a very loose cheese sauce poured over it... pretty bland.

I feel like it was just an off night for both the server and whoever was working the meat station, and I think we'll try it again some time, but it definitely won't be in a hurry. I think you could probably find better value elsewhere in my honest opinion.
