Food and price are decent. The service is incredibly bad, however. Expect a long wait for your drinks and/or food.

Wonderful meal, each of our four person party ordered something different and we all got to share in four very different and delicious dishes. And we highly recommend starting with the beignets.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed our experience. Last night was the first time we have dined there in a while. All of the food tasted over seasoned. For instance, the Halibut was cooked perfectly but The sauce that was supposed to be lemony tasted like pure vinegar. We could not taste the tuna in the tuna tartare because it was over powered by horseradish.

Went to a show in lower Queen Anne and picked this place for a pre show dinner. I had made a 9:45 reservation just in case the restaurant was busy- which it was, but we arrived a little early, found a seat in the bar area and had great service! Quick drinks, great wine and enjoyed two - very large, tasty appetizers. I’ve been before and we will confirm to go. A great place for entertaining, foodies and date nights!

Excellent food but packed on Friday night and not equipped to deal with the amount of people coming in. Our reservation was at 8:15 - we got seated at 8:35 and our server came to take our first drink order at 8:50 (no exaggeration - my family works in the food industry so I was watching the time). We saw patrons get seated then getting up to leave when no one came around to take care of them for a long time. Everything we ordered was great but the excruciatingly slow service definitely took away from the dining experience.

Delicious cajun/creole food. Definitely go try their breakfast during the happy hour (Monday - Fridag until 11:00). It's really easy to get a table and their Big Easy take on breakfast food is AMAZING.

Made a reservation for 2:15 days in advance. Received a phone call an hour before my reservation (5 people) asking us to arrive early because the kitchen would be closing at 2:30. Pretty lame.

We were early and ready to get everything going at 2:00. Restaurant was not.

Once orders were placed and the wheels were turning everything was fantastic. Food was delicious and staff was lovely.

Don't expect amazing service, do expect to have an awesome time.

I have eaten here many time's and for the first time yesterday my food was less than perfect, which caught me off guard. For some reason my food (Lunch Steak Frites with Shallot Pan Sauce) was inedible salty. If it were any other restaurant I may not have even noticed, but I have been here several times and this is not their typical standard.

I will chalk this up to just a bad day for the cook and assume this is highly unusual. I'll be back to try it again.

A big hit again. The food at Toulouse Petit is always wonderful. I had the blackened rockfish and my wife had the wild boar and lamb tagliatelle. Both entrees were delicious. We also enjoyed two appetizers: fried green tomatoes with dungeness crab and braised bacon. What a way to start a dining experience. The sauces that this restaurant uses are perfectly prepared for each dish. The fried green tomatoes and crab appetizer was a real treat.

While our server, Lauren, was awesome and made our experience great, we never did get our reserved table due to a previous party sitting at the table. Lauren was able to eventually move us from two tables at the bar to the long, high top table in the bar to accommodate our party. But it was 45 minutes after our reservation time. It seems like the restaurant should know how to accommodate two large parties if they accept the reservation.

This is a real find. From outside it looks something completely different. Don’t be fooled by appearances. We loved our dinner so much that next day went for lunch. Had to wait for the table some 40 minutes as no reservations taken for lunch. Dinner was quite noisy due to both acoustics and rather loud music, so we enjoyed lunch more as we could have a conversation without shouting. Both times the dishes were superb from an interesting menu.

I have been to Petit Toulouse for brunch many times but never lunch or dinner. WOW! I had a business lunch here this week and had the salmon on a bed of arugula and corn and it was probably the BEST salmon I've EVER had and I eat out A LOT!!! I was amazed!! I cannot wait to go back. It was truly remarkable.

We were slightly disappointed. The waitress came over shortly after we sat down and asked if we wanted drinks. I was still deciding but my boyfriend knew what food we wanted & what drink he wanted so we ordered that. I waited & waited, waitress never came back. Everyone who walked by didn’t even look our way either. I had to go order my drink at the bar myself and when I got back our food was at the table. They dropped the food off and again never came back to see if we wanted more drinks or to refill water. The food was ok but kind of bland which was surprising considering Cajun creole food usually has a lot of spice to it. We were kind of disappointed overall.

Great atmosphere and food was amazing. However, the quality of the service they provided was very poor. The server who served our table came by our table twice the entire dinner. We couldn't get water refilled or order more drinks unless we grabbed other servers passing by our table to call our server. When we asked for a desert menu, they gave us a check. Their service was disrespectful and disappointing overall.

Tasty food, unusual combinations of ingredients well prepared. Fair prices, good value. Nice wine list but we drank by the glass (the bottle of wine with dinner days are in the rear view mirror) and that list still included a nice Oregon pinot noir.
The noise level is striking upon arrival, but we seem to adjust to it and it is not an inhibitor to conversation or enjoyment.
This restaurant is one of our favorites and a top choice in this neighborhood.

Everything was great until I received my food. I ordered the jumbo shrimp and grits, but the grits were way to watery. I could barely eat the grits with a spoon, basically it was soup. I was given a fork with my meal, I had no chance to eat the grits with a fork!

Service was strange - first they couldn’t find our reservation, then they sat us down at a table that was separate from our group (despite the fact that we were all on the same reservation). To make things worse, they pushed us to leave after being seated for just over an hour, claiming that another group had a reservation and was waiting for our table. We walked by the restaurant about 30 minutes later after grabbing a drink at another bar and found that our original table was still sitting empty... Luckily, at least the food was good!
