I took my wife to Petite Bucherie for her birthday as a surprise. The restaurant delivered everything I hoped for and more. The food, the service and the ambiance were all wonderful. They have also done well on responding to my special request and communicating with me ahead of time. Thank you, Petite Bucherie, for a wonderful evening! We will certainly try to visit again!

Pretty disappointing from start to finish. The seating process was very awkward - they didn't seem very organized. Then it took a while for someone to take our drink order and get us water. The appetizers were decent (escargot and octopus). Then came the entrees...My lamb was way overdone - I asked for medium and it came well. The lamb sausages were dry and shriveled. Maybe worst of all - the shrimp in my friend's shrimp pasta were UNDERcooked. Not appetizing. I told the staff that I didn't want my money back or anything but they should know that the food was not great. They blamed COVID on staffing. So, there ya go.

Lose the music...it interferes with friends talking over dinner and at the very least, it should be very quiet and not blasting...I had to ask them to quiet it down so we could relax over a pleasant dinner...

Amazing night in this beautiful bistro. The manager and the server was French and that make more my night beautiful, they was very lovely and the food incredibly good. I normally read reviews on OpenTable before and I saw some of them was really bad about the service and food. Let me tell you something I don’t know guys where you went but that not certainly at Petite Boucherie you find rude servers or bad food. I learn yesterday never read the reviews and go check on yourself. Stop be greedy and just relax when you going out with your friends or your lover.

Merci Petite team

Only side options are fries or basic salad -- and the only cheese option for their burger is Gruyere (even though they have 6 cheeses on cheese plate, they refused to substitute blue cheese). Only had instant tea. Extremely limiting for a restaurant with such high prices.

Pate plate was good. Had to ask for more toasts.
Both the steak and the moules were perfectly cooked but the accompanying frites were overdone and not seasoned.

Had the branzino which was out of this world. I love this fish and order it everywhere I go. I think this was probably the best branzino I ever had. My friend had the salmon which was good also. The dessert was "meh", not a real chocolate mousse --too airy, light for me; not the usual wonderful dense, deep chocolate concoction.
Waiter was great, from Paris and willing to speak French, which was very enjoyable. Also, they were wonderful about seating us at the outdoor table we wanted. Great for people watching.

Just put to lunch with a friend and it was delicious. It was a bit difficult to catch a waiters attention. My salad Nicoise came without any tuna and I had to send it back after I succeeded in attracting a waiter. Otherwise the food was quite tasty and the setting was lovely but very tight. We both said we would go back again

Great location, cozy place on a side street off Christopher St.

The service in a recent Saturday night was poor to fair: things that should take a snap (water, bread) or a short time (cocktails) took a veeeery long time, but the food arrived way too soon as we had just gotten our cocktails a minute before. And we had explicitly told the waiter that we wanted to savor our drinks first, so to keep the food for later when we would order wine with the food. It’s not fun to have a bitter absinthe drink with your steak frites (temperature was exactly to order, mind you, yum). The waiter was rude and dismissive when I told him about this awful timing. Luckily the manager stepped in and made up for it. As a French guy, he very much understood that proper sequencing mattered. Without that there would be no returning to this place for me.

The ambiance was very nice: sitting in the outside patio is great, airy enough for the pandemic situation, with plexiglas partitions to separate the guests.

Portions are large enough to be shared, assuming that’s doable given the current circumstances.

Overall the experience was marred by the service we received. After receiving the starter, it took over an hour before we finally waved down a server to ask where the entrees were. By this point it was 3pm on a Saturday afternoon so it wasn't a peak dining time. Within a few minutes we received our meal, however, one of the entrees was incorrect. A friend ordered steak and eggs but had received steak frites. After informing the manager, he offered to bring a side of eggs to remedy the situation. Once we received our bill, we noticed that we were incorrectly charged for steak frites. We notified our server who told us that the two entrees were the same price. They are not; there was an $8 difference. He brought back the corrected receipt only to reflect a $5 discount. Normally, I would not argue over $3 but the attitude of the server and the manager was so rude that I pointed out the difference. The manager then explained that the $3 charge was for the side of eggs to which we explained that the eggs were supposed to come with the meal. In other words, this was a compromise to rectify the wrong meal and avoid sending the entire dish back to the kitchen. He left again and returned by slamming the receipt on the table and saying, "there, now you don't have to pay for the steak! I took it off completely" and stormed away. This was not at all what we wanted. We wanted to support the restaurant and certainly wanted to pay for the meal we had but the attitude of both the server and manager left a sour experience for everyone. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone as I couldn't even receive average service. The best part of the experience was the ambiance though the outdoor heaters don't fully reach all of the tables...
