1st visit in 1 year plus we always leave saying "Why don 't we come here more often." A small menu but as many specials as regular menu. We both had bistro salads ; mixed greens very peppery... so good. I had greek lamb ragout on eggplant with gnocci. Wonderful seasonings and flavor. My wife had steelhead trout filet with... More

This was our return visit to Le Petit and we were looking forward to another great experience. First of all the restaurant had expanded and everyone was packed in almost on top of each other. Second the service was terrible! Was served a drink after a long wait and then bread an hour later . About 15 minutes later appetizers... More

Very popular, you have to call them directly to make a reservation. Food was excellent, tables were a little cramped.

Yawn, yawn, yawn... the dinner that is. The buzz at this place is phenomenal but maybe the locals are a bit too enthusiastic? The menu is very basic French bistro, delivered with the same wooden service. The old space is uninspiring, the old Japanese room that never got a face lift, but I would say the rest rooms are very... More

Le Petit Bistro is something out of a movie. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, cozy, and offers a delicious menu and wine list. The waitstaff is extremely attentive and courteous.

This was the first time my husband & I had been there and went with another couple who had been there before and said that they had expanded to next door to enlarge the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service wonderful. My French onion soup was the best I've had in a very long time. I give them... More

I write this review with mixed feelings as part of the evening was excellent, while others parts fell absolutely flat on their face. For the first part of our visit up until the main meal was served, we could not have asked for better service and food. We were promptly seated, drink orders taken and delivered (although my martini should... More

While visiting Hyde Park recently, we had dinner at a great French restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY. Le Pitit Bistro offers authentic french cooking with a large assortment of appetizers and entrees. I had the Veal Francaise which was to die for! A variety of specials are offered every night along with regular dinner entrees. On a Monday night, the restaurant... More

Four of us had dinner on a Thursday night in Oct. The restaurant is so comfortable and cozy that already we were giving it a 10. The wait staff were more that attentive. They were at our table every 5 minutes asking if they could get us something or filling our water and drinks. I ordered Steak Frites and the... More

I came here with my son and his girlfriend (both who are students at CIA). The place was jammed and tight on Friday night. We were seated in the room the left of the bar and were very happy with out table. Some tables seemed a little tight, but most looked better than you would get in most casual European... More
