They're very limited food selections on the menu and the food we were ordering were over-salted. The menu online does not match what they have in the restaurant in fact they are completely different as if it's a different restaurant.

Although we had a confirmed reservation through Open Table, when we got to the restaurant (after driving quite a ways), the restaurant was closed. We had not been notified.

The restaurant is hidden away a block up from the hustle an bustle of Fremont. Once we were able to find the entrance we were quite impressed at the ambiance of this restaurant. The food was tasty with several variations of pork that I hadn't thought of trying. Worth a trip out to see what they have to offer before they close in October.

You've only got about 6 weeks left ! It is puzzling and discouraging to think this masterful chef has to close this amazing restaurant, but there it is. Le Petit Cochon is a STUNNING restaurant, the food is off the charts, the attention to detail is amazing, and the location gives a fantastic birds eye view of the Freemont environs. If you love farm to table, if you LOVE charcuterie, if you worship the swine, then you MUST go.

Fantastic groove and wonderful service. The food was great with one exception being the wagyu beef be very fatty and hard to cut with a butter knife. Despite that we'll definitely come back again.

Our dinner was one of the best I've enjoyed in Seattle this year, perhaps in a couple years. Service was excellent, the food imaginative, including dessert. And though not a dessert, the goat ribs were especially memorable. Cocktails in super cold glasses were outstanding. And I loved the second floor window view of Fremont Central.

It was somewhat expensive--so that's why it's only "4 stars" for value. But we ate every bite and every bite was delicious. I've been recommending it to my friends (except those who like quiet places) and will take my cuisine-appreciative daughter here for her birthday.

My partner and I always enjoy having a impromptu date night together here. We luckily had a Friday night off together ( both being servers ) and we decided to dine out at our favorite spot in Fremont. The food is always amazing, we always get the charcuterie board and than two entrees to share. Unfortunately our service was uneven, we were unsure whom our server was. Seeing our “first server” being attentive and joking with other tables but inattentive with us. After ten mins she came up and was silent, we than being in the industry of fine dining with small kitchens, took charged and ordered our favorite drinks / food. After the amazing appetizer course we still weren’t offered new drinks ( drinks were empty for a while) we had talked and decided on a bottle of wine but it took so long we ended up just getting a beer and a glass of wine. The entrees showed up , we devoured them ( best food in Fremont ) but decided to not get dessert or after dinner drinks because of service. We are a younger couple but have been in the industry for over 8 years and we just want to reiterate the servers need humbling but the chefs do not !

Great meal. Burned my original steak in the kitchen and they had to redo it, so my dish came later than my party. But, they gave us lovely pork belly to compensate. Perfect cook on the steak, pork, and burger. Pork belly is the highlight. Good service.

This place always amazes yet is never the same. It's a creative adventure in cuisine that even the less educated palate can be thrilled by. I find the personal touch from the host to the chef reflects the pride and joy that Le Petit has in it's food and has for their patrons. I'll be back soon.

Quite expensive for Seattle, without living up to the price tag. Mains are mostly in the $30 to mid $40 range, most starters in the mid $teens. While I like the farm-to-table, tip-to-tail concept, our actual plates ranged from "meh" to "pretty good" which is not a great selling point at that price.

We went to Le Petite Cochon for my birthday during restaurant week. Everything was wonderful. The dishes were creative, used fresh ingredients, and were all delicious. Each course was seasoned perfectly with many different interesting flavors. The servicer were very attentive and provided helpful input on the menu. The prices were very reasonable since it was restaurant week. The usual prices are high but it seems worth it for the quality and the experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or a romantic date night.

We've eaten at this place a number of times, and the food is always high quality with good service and decent ambiance. But this time we made the mistake of going during restaurant week. The place was packed with hyenas who were howling and folks laughing like kookaburras. The noise level was excruciating. I asked the waitress, and she said that restaurant week brings a different clientele --- seemed like they had escaped their usual sports bar, that kind of noise. But the tasting menu for restaurant week was good and worth the price. So, I recommend the place, but don't go when it's crowded, too damn noisy. Although I find that it is a common problem even among expensive restaurants in Seattle to have interior arcitecture that causes the noise level to go up. Apparently, it makes people buy more drinks, as in a sports bar again. Well, it makes me go out less.
