Girls' group (we ranged from 60+ to 90+ years) headed to La Petite this past Friday evening. Love the ambiance! If you want a bit of fancy, choose the dining room, for casual, ask to sit in the bar. We sat in the bar and...More

Never a bad meal. Fine dining in either the dining room or the bar. Always consistent. Amazing French Food, but can also tailor for special dietary needs.

We almost didn't go to this restaurant bc we were in casual attire from touring all day. However, the folks eating outside seemed quite casually attired so we did go -- thankfully! Although not as elegantly dressed as many in the dining room, the hostess...More

We recently dined here with friends and had a wonderful experience. Our waiter was very accommodating to the point of turning the air conditioner down a bit since a couple of us were cold. The food was outstanding. Two of us ordered the tuna and...More

As locals it was some time before we started coming here. We have never been disappointed. The food and service is always above the norm with a very creative chef. The service as well is always tops. We have come to the conclusion that it...More
