Atmosphere was great. Service was excellent. I had lobster and my husband had steak. It was the best that we had in along time. His steak was tender and delicious. My lobster was so big; I shared it with my husband. The carrots and creamed spinach was good too.

Petit Paree was the fanciest restaurant in Festus for generatioins and that is a good thing. Its decor is dated but charming in a 1960-70s way. It is dark and intimate, perfect for the date of your life if you live around here but not anything clandestine because the whole town comes here.The bar is friendly and fun, but not... More

The name is misleading. It is rather dimly lit making it rather a relaxing experience, however the motif is a bit outdated. The food is not as good as fine dining could be and rather overpriced for the portion size. Hours are not convenient or consistent (based on their group reservations). The service tends to be a bit up tight... More

This an old place in town in the 60' 70's 80's and even the 90's it was the place to eat but about a year ago the owners of Taytro's restaurant bought the business from the former owners daughter and she stayed on to help. It was a shining star but it has gone downhill considerably I think they would... More

One of the older restaurants in Festus. Winter a lot years ago when it was owned by a family I knew forever. Used to be the place to go on New Year's Eve. Their food is good and I understand the new ownership is very good too. Also has a very nice bar. Parking is an issue sometimes. With the... More

The comfortable decor is as soothing as some of their wonderful dishes. My family recently enjoyed the Veal Chop, special beef filet, and lamb. All were cooked to perfection. In spite of their being a full house, the atmosphere was enjoyable and their were groups celebrating the Holiday's in their private rooms. Their is a full bar and the wines... More

I had family visiting from Manhattan and we selected Petit Paree for dinner the week of Thanksgiving. They found the restaurant to be lovely with good food! We have been there before and were excited to return since the new owners have taken over. I had steak and my husband had Prime Rib both cooked perfectly. Love the ambiance and... More

I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. We both ordered steaks. They were both delicious and very tender. We both ordered the fresh veggies for one of our sides. I ordered the twice baked potato and my husband ordered the regular baked potato for our other side. We split a bottle of wine which was in the $20... More

While our first experience began with a great atmosphere and good service that all went away when the first food was served. Nothing was served above room temperature and the not one of the 6 orders was served as it was ordered. Most of the meat was undercooked and most of the sides were average to less than average tasting.... More
