My only critique is that I wish they had had more French food on the menu and French beer. They gave outstanding service and were extremely welcoming.

They allow to bring dogs, so we could enjoy the dinner with my daughter’s dog. Probably they can consider a dog menu.

This restaurant was so clean and so easy to get to. The parking is the only challenge but it’s Broad Ripple so that’s expected. I was extremely pleased, as with every restaurant in the patachou group it was excellent and I will be back.

Our food was amazing! It had been a couple years since I had their mussels and I was unsure about ordering them again and I am so glad I gave them a second try! So good! We felt the cocktails could have been a bit better. Our waitress was so kind, but overall service was a bit slow. Chef came out to make sure everything was ok and that was so appreciative!

My husband got the steak frittes and I got the lobster. We also had the cheeseboard appetizer. The cheeseboard was delicious and the best part of the meal.
My husband ordered his steak medium but it was served medium rare. It didn’t have much flavor either. I found the main courses to be very overpriced for what you actually got. If the only steak you’re going to have on your menu is a sirloin cut and charge over $30 for it, spring for a strip at least.
I was also surprised that their water carafes were plastic and not glass. I know that sounds picky but we spent over $100 on dinner that was mostly French fries. Again, glass carafes would have elevated it a little more. The plastic ones had water spots and hard water stains.

I will say that the dessert was delicious.

If you’re a drinker then you might not care as much about the quality of the food - but my husband and I don’t drink so the mediocre main course really stood out. If we go there again I’ll be sure to try something more French I guess lol

Great service - food was phenomenal. My fiancée got the Knife & Fork burger and I got the Frenc Onion Grilled Cheese and both were terrific. Just a short walk away too.

A very cute dinner place! Service was not up to par. We were barely checked on, and seemed almost as an annoyance to the server. The French onion soup / truffle frites were amazing! Steak was decent. Better off just ordering small things from the menu.

We were at Petite Chou for a Valentine's/birthday celebration, and as always everything was perfect. We sat safely outside on the enclosed patio where the heaters (and cocktails) kept us warm and cozy. It is so nice to be able to get out of my own kitchen and have a special meal at Petite Chou. Some of us had the beef bourguignon Valentine special, others the sole and the chicken paillard. All of our meals were beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you!
