Fantastic new restaurant. Presentations for all courses were exquisite and the staff were attentive. Food was a nice combination of French-inspired with American ingredients. Very refreshing to be in a restaurant that is quiet enough you can hear your dining companion.
Service, food, presentation were all excellent.
We will return often
We ate here in a Chef's tribute to Anthony Bourdain. These guys are obviously serious foodies. I'd definitely go back to check out their non-Bourdain cuisine, too.
Chef Rob and his team are simply amazing! Do not miss your chance to dine at Petite Galerie!
Elegant, peaceful, heavily French influenced, colorful, fresh ingredients. Our server was super friendly and on par as far as recommendations and food knowledge.
The ambiance is upscale. Dimly lit, white tablecloth. An older crowd, very classical music. It felt fancy, but yet my party and I were all comfortable in "business casual" attire. If you're any type of foodie, don't miss this place, regardless of age, music choices, etc. They do French cuisine right.
My friends and I shared six or seven dishes from the Land, Sea, Earth and Heaven menu. Have to admit...the "theme" could go...it didn't add anything to the meal. Top of the menu had lighter fare, moving down moved into more entree sized dishes. We picked six dishes from various parts of the menu and they paired them together in courses for a completely well-rounded experience.
We began our meal with two delicious salads. Freshly shaved fennel, sea scallops, bright greens. Both were delicious and a light start to a meal that was building with flavor.
Next course: ling cod with gnocchi and roasted fennel in this AMAZING hollandaise sauce (to die for, give me a loaf of bread please). Wasn't a huge fan of the gnocchi, wanted it to perhaps be cooked a tiny bit more...but that sauce...well I could've put just about anything in there and been happy. We also shared a beet risotto with hazelnut and asparagus. The flavors all worked divinely together.
And the final course: veal sweetbreads in this light, delicate vegetable ragout. Complimented the sweetbreads so nicely. Think a lightly sweet corn salsa. Chilled, tomato and pepper and fresh corn. So delicious scooped up with a sweetbread. Delish! And those St. Louis ribs. The guy in the group was a huge fan. Little too messy for me, but I did eat every last apricot from the plate.
Dessert was beautifully presented. The sugar glass was like cotton candy and the raspberry flan had an interesting texture, different from what I've had before. It was great.
Superb food in a calm atmosphere with beautifully elegant dining room. Maybe expand wine list a bit for several bottle price points but wine we had was excellent. Nice to have a restaurant like this in Seattle.
Great food and service. With a slight twist to how the food is served, the help from the waiter helped to organize the meal best. Everyone at the restaurant was spot on with timing and were always courteous.
We liked ambience and service. My halibut dinner was very good but the 2 dishes my wife ordered were fair and way overpriced. I had a lemon drink and my wife had a manhattan. We both had a dessert at $12.00 each, also on the high side. Our bill of $146.44 prior to tip for 2 people was more than we expected to spend.
Best lunch I have had in many years .
Fantastic experience! Loved the service. Exceptional food and quality! Definitely a must try and experience!
The service was outstanding and the food was very good. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Petite Galerie. The platings were definitely works of art. All the food presented beautifully and tasted very good. You can tell that they spent time to care and craft for each dishes. The portion is on the smaller size but I prefer that so I can try lots of different items. The only set back for me was the desserts. While they were beautifully put together I felt that both of the desserts I've tried that night were too sweet for my palette and almost one noted. Other than the desserts I definitely recommend Petite Galerie, especially on a date night. It's a perfect place for a nice meal with good conversations.
A bit stuffy for my taste and the area, and a strip mall. Small portions, prepared beautifully. Solid flavors. Turn the heat down. Not restaurant should be that hot.
This impeccable white tablecloth restaurant serves creative cuisine in a (very small) (very expensive) small plate format. We savored every bite. The quiet atmosphere and excellent service made this a memorable experience.
Relaxing meal, in a quiet environment. Excellent food, professional service, in a nice location with off street parking.
While I think the service needs a little tightening up, the food and the concept is a nice addition to the Seattle food scene.
Service was fabulous. Portions are tasting menu-sized, but perfectly prepared and presented. We look forward to going back and trying new dishes in the future.
Consistently excellent! I never fail to be incredibly pleased by the overall experience of dining here: amazing food, impeccable service, friendly staff, pleasant dining environment, wonderful wine selections, and the plates look like works of art.
Quaint and somewhat formal French restaurant with a lot of attention to details: pretty decor with lovely oak floor, impeccable service, exquisite presentation for delicate dishes.
This restaurant gives a new meaning to a "tasting menu" with extremely "petite" servings.
The menu is a little confusing with the staff giving little in the way of guidance and description of the various choices. Overall the food is interesting and well prepared but in some cases was disappointing and surprisingly expensive for what was served. Our party of four ordered at least four items per person. For example, a tiny serving of sweetbreads was $26 and a finger size serving of foie gras was $25, both were under-whelming. The wine prices were also over the top. I kind of like the creativity, but the food concept is a little too pretentious. Why not a a quality but traditional french brasserie in the neighborhood and keep it simple.
We were celebrating a friend's birthday and felt a little let down.
We arrived in the early evening, it was very warm and uncomfortable with no shades or awnings on the windows to block the bright 6:00 pm sun. It spoiled the elegant atmosphere and ambiance that has been created. I don't think we'll be back.
Wine was significantly over priced. Bottle recommended by waiter was excellent pairing, but at $70, it was almost four times retail of $17.99. By the glass wines were a small pour of five to the bottle. Some entrees were small. Kitchen was slow. Ambiance was very pleasant.
Lunch menu is really different from dinner one. No kid menu.
Food was ok but portion are small
Overall bad experience
Elegant, low key, fantastic service, very good food. We will be back.
Our expernience at Petite Gallerie was outstanding. After a minor hickup with the perperation of the main dishes the staff and the management went out of their way to correct the issue and to make sure that we felt important and comforable. We will definitely be back for more great experiences with the cooking and the service. Thank you for the great evening.
Great addition to Seattle dining scene. Upscale and not pretentious. All they need are window blinds!
Overall excellent experience. Many dishes lend to sharing. Service was outstanding. Wine list by the glass is very nice. Comfortable, quiet ambiance. Chairs are very comfortable. Recommend as 5- stars all-around.
Read about the review in the Seattle Times and decided to have a birthday dinner there. It did not disappoint: impeccable service, wonderful presentations with the wow factor. The food was the star: it was fantastic. New and different combinations made each item on the tasting menu a delightful surprise. I would encourage all to go there to have a great dining experience.
This was a memorable dining experience! High ratings in every category.
Very pleasant dinner with excellent service. The servings are small plates so you will likely need to order 3 plates to get a satisfactory amount to eat. The dishes that we ordered are attractively plated and delicious. We will return for dinner again.
We live nearby. This is a superb addition to have French cuisine here.
Had a fantastic meal here on Saturday night. Went with the 6-course tasting menu. Love when they just surprise you dish after dish. Mushrooms in puff pastry and roasted Tri-tip were amazing. Our waiter was attentive and at no time did we feel rushed. The restaurant just opened a couple months ago and it is off to a great start. We did run into the sun problem as the sun was going down. They are aware and our waiter said window shades are on order!! There is a room off to the side that can hold parties of 8 (or squeeze in 10.) Glad to have such great food in the hood.
Had the foi gras qual. Halibut. Chocolate mousse. All was cooked and served to perfection
What a great experience for classy and high quality French food
Service was perfect
A very rare and classical high end restaurant
Utterly FANASTIC!!! Seattle has needed, no deserved a restaurant like this for some time now. The food was very creative and just plane delicious. Service and ambiance were of an equally high standard These people care.
One problem. In two plus hours of dining in a dining room that could undoubtedly seat upwards of sixty people--, there was only one other couple there. Without customers Seattle will loose this gem. That would be a shame.
First time there my wife and I enjoyed the lunch date immensely and will return. I had the crab salad and she had the beet salad.
We both loved the carrot ginger soup. We will return. The kaffir lime panda cotta was outstanding.
The only added comment is we did not realized the obvious from the name of the restaurant and was transiently surprised by the size of the serving.
It was our second time to the restaurant and was even better than before. The setting is peaceful and beautiful, the food was excellent, and the service attentive. Thanks
We had a very nice meal with excellent service.
Everything was great. The food was fantastic. The service was top notch. The decor was very pleasant.
Late afternoon sun on a warm Spring afternoon, revealed uncomfortably warm glare that had most diners wearing sunglasses. An investment in gauze curtains would do wonders. That said, The food is spectacular in presentation, innovation, and flavour. A party of 7, we ordered nearly everything on the menu and passed them around. And then ordered many again they were so good... will surely go back. With sunglasses.
Great food and great service. Everybody raved about their dishes. Our waiter fully explained the menu and made the wine selection easy. Very comfortable seating. Highly recommended.
My first visit to Petite Gallerie. A friend and I had lunch.
We both had sandwiches from the menu.
I had the Raclette cheese sandwich and added prosciutto to it. Quite delicious, generous portion.
My friend had the chicken sandwich which she enjoyed as well.
I will come back for dinner and try the seared foi gras !
