Always enjoy the food at Petite Violette! Anytime that I have been there, the service has been excellent. On a Friday night, there is live music which can make it a little difficult to carry on conversation, but the music itself is pleasant and enjoyable.

Restaurant VERY cold inside! Just not a good vibe there from the servers. No need for valet...that is a joke at lunch time.

Had dinner for the NYE 2018... food was really good even if the menu was preset for NYE...many options to choose...lobster bisque was creamy, lamb lollipop were great, beef Wellington really well presented and the Fruits de Mer was totally awesome...tarte aux pommes was dry and hard to cut but the bread pudding was delicious...the customers are quite in their senior years w average of 60...so not sure if it’s good for young people but we wanted a low key place w good food

As usual, Violette's did not fail. The New Year's Eve dinner was festive, the service great, and the food very good.

Every dish was quite horrible. The former Violette had awesome food. The former Auberge had awesome food. This time the whole dining experience was totally unpleasant. Food was not tasteful and seemed to be prepared in advance and was neither hot nor cold. Tepid is not a good formula for a good meal. My steak was not prepared to order. The waitress was as bland as the food. She seemed serving was a chore, and she had no personality - even though we left a very generous tip.

Both my husband and I said during the meal and after we got home that we will never eat at Violette's again. Not for the extraordinary price for good food. We have eaten at chic, up-scale restaurants in 15 different countries. We do not mind paying good prices for good food. We considered leaving Violette's the minutes we sat down. How we wish that we had done so!

No apologies are in order. Perhaps the restaurant should be closed and start over again with new personnel and a new menu. We have already recommended to friends and work colleagues that they should never make reservations for the restaurant. Donc, ce n'est pas de restaurant français. C'est un mélange de n'importe quoi!
