    Had to send lobster tail back to be broiled a little bit more. Ordered dessert and finally cancelled it because it took too long. Last time we tried to eat here, with a reservation, we left before being seated because they only had a table on an open sided patio, and it was very chilly out.

    Overall was good but the New Year’s Eve menu wasn’t it …simply because I’m a fan of chicken but the rest was awesome, the wine was soo good, the chicken skin and caviar was also good except the fried chicken

    I was really excited about bringing my friend here for her birthday which I did note on the reservation. We were seated outside but not in the nicely decorated for Christmas area…we were seated on the side patio next to a server station. It turned out ok because it wasn’t as noisy and we were able to chat but that’s not ideally where I wanted to be seated with it being a special occasion. I should have requested to be seated somewhere else. There was some server confusion so it took a long time for someone to come to our table. Then our server just seemed a bit absent throughout. Even though she was really nice I expected a higher level of attention given the upscale feel and menu prices. We ordered mushroom duxelles for an appetizer, the bread was hard…like couldn’t bite into it hard. Flavor was good but hard to eat. I had the fish special for the evening, the fish was delicious, served hot and cooked perfectly however the seared potatoes it was served with were cold. My friend had the Coq Au Vin and thought it was just ok, nothing special. We also waited for bread to come to the table because it was “in the oven” but when it came out it was slices of rustic whole grain type bread that was cold. Just odd. I will likely come back and try Petite Chou again hoping for better overall experience. Maybe it was an off night the night we were there.

    Overpriced and overhyped. It might have been good at one point but I could barely taste my steak, frites were burned and cold, and the lobster was tough as rubber. Definitely a waste of money which is a bummer because it’s a cute restaurant.

    We had a dear friend and colleague in from Seattle and wanted to share a local restaurant with him. This was a perfect choice! Such a wonderful experience with the lights on the terrace. Food and service were exceptional. We all agreed that the menu was Goldilocks perfect - not too big, not too small, but something appealing for everyone in every course of the meal. And as always, the wine list is curated with reasonably priced options that are unfailingly good, so that you really can’t go wrong. We especially appreciated our server’s attention to timing of the various courses so that we never felt rushed, but never had a long lag either. Petit Choi is the closest you can get to Paris without getting on a plane. Such a reliable and charming gem. Thanks for a great night!

    We always enjoy eat at Petite Chou. At this visit, the strip steak was outstanding and the lobster looked really good. However, the draw for use is the great french fries. Service was good on a Friday evening. I also enjoyed the lavender latte and creme Brule. We highly recommend this location.

    We sat outside on the patio. It was a beautiful night and was a great choice for the ambiance and people watching. The food was amazing! The problem was the service. We waited a little longer than expected to be greeted and have our drink order taken but I assumed they were busy. Once we got to the 20 min mark with no drinks I was feeling frustrated. The real disappointment came when our food was delivered and then we didn’t even see our waitress again until we were ready for a box. I don’t need someone to be by my table the entire night but to stop back at least once is bare minimum and for a nicer restaurant I would expect better. Maybe we just had a bad waitress but it tainted the night a bit. I would go again simply based on the food!

    We had another lovely meal at Petite Choux. This time we brought our new rescue Lab who was welcomed with smiles and lots of petting. Two of us had the fork and knife burger, two of his had the steak and frites. We enjoyed PC’s special cocktails — French martini, French lemon tart and French highball — and a nice bottle of Pinot/Merlot blend. No room for dessert — we were in a good coma! Antoinette was a great server — attentive but not intrusive. A great evening.

    Overall was good. MY advices are: French fries too dark (I could fell the taste of burned oil... not much, but it was in the limit). Filet mignon very good and in the right temperature. Chicken very good, with the characteristic taste of butter . A little disappointed that I want to taste the beef tartar and that was not available. I love the environment and I will come back for sure...and maybe I can have the beef tartar!

    Poor service, tartare was tasteless, bland, without seasoning. Duck confit was only okay, not succulent as you would expect. Mashed potatoes were boring, also without butter or seasoning. Very overpriced for the quality of service, atmosphere, and food. Will not go back and would not recommend to anyone.

    We were sat outside in the patio which one have been fine if our table wasn’t extremely unstable and the ivy on the wall was digging into my husbands back. The food was ok but I wouldn’t come back. Steak tartare was presented like a raw hamburger, had little flavor and was not enough bread to go with it. Would not order again. I got the lobster and fries. Fries were over cooked, lobster was good. Husband got the chicken, he said it was ok. Overall, with the parking issues, noise from the street and the lackluster food. I would not return.
