Appetizers: good to excellent
Attentive server but very long wait for entrees
Entrees: 2 out of four were barely edible
Very disappointed with this choice for our family celebration

Petit & Keet is my go-to restaurant for out of town guests, clients, friends, and more. The service is always impeccable. The food is consistently delicious. The only problem we have is trying to decide on what to order, since the entire menu looks so yummy. I like to order P&K's fish entrees...salmon or grouper or sea bass, since it is so difficult to cook fish at home. All have been perfect! Others rave about their pork chops and filets, too.

Had sea bass, not completely cooked! Part was excellent, but part was not done. Other diners had grouper special and loved it. Wedge salad was very good!

Petit & Keet was everything I expected it to be. Great service, wonderful ambiance, and exquisite entrees. My friends and I had a wonderful ladies night.

The icing on the cake is that Samantha and I are from the same graduating class from Parkview Arts & Science Magnet!

Petit the cocktails are great; the service is perfect! Plus, anytime Louis comes by your table, it's a special treat!

This trip, we went with more casual food. Their smashburgers are delicious! The wedge salad with a side of salmon was so flavorful and filling.

The bar area is more fun and is a bit louder. The dining room area is more quiet and refined. We like the bar area!

Dinner at Petit and Keet is always an enjoyable experience. The food and service are top notch at reasonable prices. You enjoy the main dining area for an enjoyable upscale experience or enjoy the casualness of the bar seating area. It’s a little noisier but not distracting and a good overall vibe.

The wine prices were extravagant. The Cesar salad was bitter. The entree was a strip steak, and it was overcooked, and tasted like round steak that I cook at home with gravy. I was very disappointed. The quality of the food does not justify the prices. The atmosphere is great, but the food is not worth what you pay for. I will not be back.

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.
