We go to this restaurant maybe once every few months, and have always been very satisfied. This time my wife had the scallops, and I had the rack of lamb, and both were scrumptious. For appetizers I had the foie gras, and she had a salad, again, both very good. We brought with us a nice bottle of our own wine, and paid a reasonable corkage fee of $19. Only gave 4 stars for service , because we had to wait about 10 minutes for our table seating. (They were very busy.) Our waitress was very attentive. The live music did raise the energy level. Petite Violette will remainthe on our list of go to restaurants.

We ALWAYS enjoy this jewel of a restaurant that continues to cling to traditional values when it comes to preparing and serving fine foods! Are you SICK AND TIRED of "fast casual" trendy and uninteresting food unfit for a date or special occasion? Are you SICK AND TIRED of menus that offer the same ole boring fare with a slick new name or the addition of some weird topping or ingredient to prove some semblance of gourmet creativity? Are you searching for a restaurant that offers consistent quality and ambiance plus excellent service and entertainment? If so...this is the dining spot for YOU!

Overall, the food is quite good. Standouts were the cold Shrimp Cocktail appetizer -- with a trio of delicious sauces! The mix of horseradish in the cocktail sauce was PERFECT. Also the Caramel Bread Pudding (in past years I ordered the Crème Brulee which is exceptional, but wanted to try something new). My dining partner kept "borrowing" spoonfulls of my Bread Pudding, wishing he had ordered it. Each bite of the rich dessert yielded new flavors. It is almost petty to bring up the couple of things which were "less-than-impressive", but the Apple, Walnut, Endive salad was somewhat lacking. Too sparse and not enough vinaigrette. I have had better... The Chocolate Cake with whipped cream was standard fare. Those trifling qualms aside, I will probably be back at Petite Violette to ring in the year 2021.

This is a very impressive place. It is unimpressive from the outside but the ambience inside is very pleasant. The bar area is small and the bar tender very friendly. We had a table ( booth ) by the window which was very nice and better than being in the open area. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The menu is varied and has some great choices. I chose the Beef Wellington and my wife had the steak frites. Both were very good ! Overall, I would recommend this place and it is also very good value for money !

I took my dear older friend celebrating her 88th birthday and the Server, Kris, was wonderful and attentive. She made my guest feel special.
The musical entertainment even sang an abbreviated‘Happy Birthday.’
The escargot appetizer was disappointing but the mussels were decent.
My guest loved the Diver Scallops.
I found the Steak Frites (beef tenderloin) to be tender and tasty but nothing special.
Overall a very nice experience, decent food. I would go back but if booked would not be upset to find another place for dinner.
Note: the chef that night was in love with cream sauce on everything

From entry to exit the whole experience delightful, absolutely no rush, the epitome of French dining, staff excellent. They knew their menu, answered questions professionally and respectfully. Linen and silverware spotless, music very pleasant and non intrusive.

The food was first class, my fish was superb.

Overall an excellent evening.

Thank you all!!

Another wonderful meal at our neighborhood gem. The food is always great. Tonight, our group started the meal off with a cup of their famous and delicious onion soup topped with parmesan and melted gruyere. Then we had the jumbo diver scallops, beef bourguignon, and the veal scaloppini over spinach ravioli. The place was packed with early holiday parties but the service was friendly, attentive, and spot on! Never a bad meal at Petite Violette.

We have been there several times and many times when it was Petite Violette we love it especially my husband. The only thing we miss is good bread - we live in Chateau Elan so it’s a long way

The scallops were good, but the price was a little high for only four.

The Beef Wellington was okay, but not great. Again the price was a little high.

The salmon was a hit as always.

The waitperson was great, but the meal took too long to be served.

First time dining in this gem of a place! The food was fantastic; and for a French restaurant, the food on the plates were plentiful. The prices were very reasonable too! Service was great and our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I have now found one of my favorite new restaurants and have a new place that I can take my out of town guests to.
