We shared Mussel Mariniere as an appetizer. It was such a pleasant surprise: mussels were large, the sauce had wine, garlic, cream--it was delicious and the portion was quite abundant. The mixed salad was nothing special. The medallions de porc was served with mashed potatoes...More

First visit to this bistro and the food was so very good! I am picky about French cuisine and the chef did not disappoint throughout the entire meal. We will absolutely return. Do not miss the coq au vin...exceptional.

Serving traditional French cuisine since 1989. Le Petit Bistro experince is all about enjoying your favorite French cuisine in calming atmosphere with a slight tone of the romance in the air . The superior service will also leave you satisfied as well as full. The waiters/waitresses answer any questions, suggest meals and wine and are overall nice to talk to. Bon appetit et a bien tot ! - Jean Michel
