We dine here every year for Thanksgiving. Restaurant was full the entire meal. (Was informed that they were fully booked from 1pm till closing - glad we always book several months in advance. They brought in some exceptional servers, who kept everything running perfectly, at an unhurried pace. First course was a morel tarte, followed by pumpkin soup. Main course... More

This is a fantastic restaurant for fine French dining in Olympia. The atmosphere is upscale but casual, the wine selection is wide, and the food delicious. Arguably the nicest restaurant in Olympia. I would recommend getting a reservation. Great for a romantic dinner out, not great for kids. Highly recommend.

This place was superb! Atmosphere abounds, and it's great for a romantic evening or special occasion. The food exceeds the atmosphere. The lamb was melting off the bone, and don't leave without trying the galette! The staff are attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended

What can I say? Went to LPM on referral from a number of family members and friends, and it did not disappoint. Celebrated our anniversary. Chose a burgundy from the extensive wine list, on recommendation of our server. We ordered the tartare for appetizer, French onion soup for mid course, I had the duck and hubby had the quail for...

We went for dessert. I got the creme brûlée to share with my husband on date night. We got it and it was seriously small. We didn't know what to expect since all the desserts are oral (no price included). So for two bites each (1/3 of a cup) we paid $9 plus tax and tip. It was disappointing and... More

We fell in love with La Petite Maison during our first visit five years ago. Proprieters Justin and Zoe are amazing and treat all their guests as long-time friends. Justin is an extraordinary, classic French chef as well as an outstanding sommelier, and nothing he prepares will ever disappoint. To this day, the best Coq au Vin I have ever... More

The menu is varied and very French with local NW sourced ingredients. The Fois Gras was superb in a cream sauce with morel mushrooms. Most of the menu items are of French theme, most produce ingredients are source locally. The husband and wife partnership have owned the restaurant for five years and most of the fixtures are from the original... More

My husband and I dine here quite regularly, including special holiday dinners such as thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve. The only reason we didn't book for Valentine's Day was the menu just offered more food than we are used to. The Valentine's Day reviewer, obviously has little experience of fine dining. The Valentine's Day menu was available at... More

We ate here for a birthday dinner the last weekend of February. We had not been here since the current owners took over a few years ago and we were, frankly, blown away. We had the five course prix fixe which, at $62, seemed reasonable. We have certainly paid more in other locations, albeit in bigger cities. Every bite from... More

Went here for their "Valentines" special dinner which was a 4 course meal of an appetitzer, soup, entree, and dessert...All the food was very well presented and delicious but at $200 for two and we didn't even get the wine (which would set you back at least another $100), WAY WAY WAY over priced. We did add on the "Morrel"... More

Grand Opening was May 3, 2011!
La Petite Maison is set in a newly remodeled 1903 home that complements the French country-style cuisine. Chef Wells offers seasonal, local ingredients classically prepared and matched with an exceptional wine program. The expansive menu covers classic French fare (such as duck confit, cassoulet and house-made pates) as well as inventive creations such as lobster pot pie and crispy pork belly with hazelnuts. Along with the regular menu, a nightly prix fixe menu is offered. The prix fixe menu highlights the freshest ingredients available each day and provides Chef Wells a creative outlet to utilize his most advanced techniques.

An extensive wine program features wines from the most classic and well-regarded regions and producers from France as well as Washington wines. Chef Wells offers personalized wine pairings to best complement the cuisine.

Established in 2011

After several iterations of restaurants in the space, the new owners of La Petite Maison are thrilled to restore the building to its original charm choosing to keep the original name of the restaurant that first opened in 1977. Now offering seasonal, local ingredients classically prepared and matched with an exceptional wine program, La Petite Maison is the South Sound region's only French restaurant
