“Went twice in a week - absolutely love this place - great food choices and live music - and petanque!”
Review of Petanque

We had to give this recently-opened place a try, and after having had our first taste (charcuterie assortment - just as you would get in France), and talking with one of the owners, we decided to come back several evenings later, on a jazz night (featuring Jerome, awesome guitar), and were completely blown away by the ambiance and the burgers (salmon and Angus beef). Informal yet classy, lively but not raucous, quality without being ostentatious. It is the kind of place where you feel comfortable striking up a conversation with your neighbor between sets and when it rains you have no problem making room for those who have to re-locate to the roofed bar area. And don't forget to talk to the owners - great guys! The petanque pit is also awaiting you and is well-lit for evening competition. The only possible downside is that this is a rather small place, and, if it gets too popular, they will really have to find a larger indoor and outdoor space. So, in the meantime, get there and enjoy the intimacy before it starts splitting at the seams! Parking is available within easy walking distance.

It is hard to describe this place because it is so great. Good burger and simply french food well made you can enjoy them inside or in the courtyard which is the best spot of the restaurant. Most of the evening you have live music with great band. The drinks, wine and cocktails are delicious. Friendly atmosphere. You can enjoy a sip of wine at the bar, high top inside or on the couch and after that play petanque or just chilled and listen to great music. A great spot to have fun with friends and family

I went there this Friday and what a surprise! From the red front door, you really can't tell. When you first come in, it seems like a cute little spot. Some artwork for sale hang on the walls and the lighting is inviting. Right away, the polite hostess welcomes you and tells you the program of the evening. Live entertainment every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, it seems like there is always something happening. Friday is Reggae night and I could already hear the live music in the background coming from the back door. Following the recomendation of the hostess, I went outside to check it out. The backyard is super cute, and has a full bar with cocktails and an extensive wine menu. They were starting a new food menu with more than 10 burgers including vegetarian options as well, full shareable boards, and salads. I had the goat cheese burger and it was honestly the best burger I have ever had. The backyard was packed and some people were even dancing. I had such a blast! I will go back for sure on another night, for some more live music and to experience other options on their menu

Great gem in Northwood area. I had a goat cheese burger and it was excellent. I was lucky to be there for the music. The owners are super nice and courteous. I will definitely be going back again. It would be a great place to rent out for a private party!

I used to go to the other place « le rendez-vous « which I liked very much,now the two brother reopened a new more casual little bistro « la Pétanque « in Northwood ,it’s got little plates,we shared a plate of charcuterie and we both had a burger we had an excellent Pinot noir from Bourgogne ,and were lucky to have a little live music,this place need a little more,but being open for only 2 weeks it was acceptable ,I will definitely go back and back
