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.

I know all restaurants are noisy but since I’m hard of hearing I asked for a table on the outskirts. They were wonderful and gave us a perfect table. Wine, appetizer, do. ER, and dessert were fantastic. Service was perfect

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.

Upon arrival we were seated immediately between to party of 3. This was already bad bc the seating is far too close to enjoy your conversation without overheating the other guest conversation. The ladies seating behind us were loud, happy to see one another and that’s great, but completely annoying when you’re on a date and want to enjoy one another’s conversation. So then we get the worst waiter. He ignored us several times, I’m not sure if he’s hard of hearing, or just didn’t really want to help us. He seemed very attentive to the other tables, just not us. He was short and standoffish. He didn’t welcome us in. He just poured water and waited on us to greet him. Then when we began to order he short responded with “ok” never more. So ordered the duck gumbo, ice box cold not even room temperature. Before tasting it I asked for an extra spoon to try it. 10, TEN complete minutes go by before he returns with a spoon and that gumbo that was already cold is just colder. We placed our order and our beverages were gone, he didn’t ask if we’d like another or anything. Took the order and walked off. This man walked pass us a dozen times to get to the 3 whites ladies sitting right behind us, but held his head high when he passed us. Every time we requested something or had a question we had to stop him. So it clearly wasn’t that he wasn’t interest in doing his job, he just wasn’t interested in helping us, a black couple AT ALL. We asked for the manager and literally waited 15 minutes. When the manager George came out he said he had only been alerted 15 Seconds prior to showing up to the table. George did try to rectify the situation. It was already too late. He decided to make us food to go since we don’t live in Arkansas. The food was definitely disgusting and very very cold when we made it to our destination which was 16 minutes from the restaurant. I reheated it and threw it away. My Brussels sprouts taste like fried leaves and the crab cake left so much to be desired.

Food was amazing
Server was very kind and answered all our questions
The manager however we were kind of disappointed in. He went around and talked to every table after they received their food except for ours. He looked at us a few times, but my guess is because were in our early 20's. Just didn't feel like he cared how our visit was since we were young.

We had a date night here and sat on the patio. It was chilly outside so they had a fire going and that was perfect. We got drinks and the peachy keet was so delicious. We shared the crab cake and then I had the short rib and he had the filet. Both were delicious and the mashed potatoes were on point. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. It was a perfect date night place!

Ordered 3 share plates to begin. All three were delicious! Unfortunately that's where the good ends. All 4 of our meals were underwhelming. My daughter had to send the filet back, it was very much overdone and the cut resembled the cheapest cut of meat. It was grisly and no where near resembling a tender filet. The second plate was at least fresh and cooked to order, but it still wasn't a quality cut of meat. The crab manicotti was so bland and the vegetables inside were still crunchy - not a dish I would ever order again. The BBQ shrimp and risotto was not hot when it was served and again, the word used to describe it was "bland."
Finally, the service was nothing short of bad. Our waiter was inattentive, at best and, at worst, ambivalent.
May try again for drinks and small plates, but certainly won't return for dinner.

The ambiance was awesome. The food was visually appetizing however , it was a little bland compared to what I'm used to. The drinks were amazing.
