we ducked in to Petit Louis Bistro on a rainy Wednesday night, right on time for our reservation. We were ushered to beautifully upholstered red velvet banquette, near a fireplace in the main dining room. Service was prompt, professional, and friendly. The menu is ample without being extravagant, with plenty of choices, in keeping with a french bistro. My plate... More

Usually eat in the downtown area around the Inner Harbor. For a birthday celebration Petit Louis was suggested. A great find on the outskirts of Baltimore. Excellant food and service (Mike was our server). This Paris style Bistro appears to have a following of locals from the area. Will be back!

This is one of three restaurants of the same name, by the same owners, in Baltimore, Savannah, and Charleston, SC. We had been to the Savannah, been impressed, and started in on the hat trick. Well worth it!! French high end bistro fare, served in a warm, evocative setting (wood burning fireplace) near the Johns Hopkins campus. Excellent mussels. First... More

Had lunch here Sunday and, except for one item, everything was perfect. We had the PÂTÉ MAISON, steak and eggs, soup of the day and the duck breast. The service was excellent as usual, and the food prepared perfectly, EXCEPT that the duck breast, which, when asked, I specifically requested be pink, came out overcooked...no pink to be found. This... More

Took our daughter for her 25th. We were impressed from the moment we sat down. The decor. reminded us of Paris. The service was great. Waite staff properly trained. The food was authentic and delicious. We had the lamb and duck entrees. Great selection of cheeses and deserts were yummy. Be prepared for a pricey bill but it is all... More

I write this mediocre review with some regret. This could really be the gem that the management strives for it to be...so close... and its a short walk away for me. That sets it up as the expensive spot on the walking tour of establishments nearby. And who doesn't want to spend a bit extra on special nights. Plus: Charming.... More

Main courses of confit Dutch and swordfish were ok , but not wry refined and oily ( fish). We had opera cake to share , which was tasty... More

The food is very good, wine list is nice and the service is solid. Had the duck which was excellent, salads were nice, hanger steak also very good. The restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night and still had to wait despite a reservation. Cheese assortment looked marvelous. It's french, slightly stuffy and caters to an older crowd. While it...

Petit Louis Bistro in Roland Park is one of our favorite Baltimore area restaurants because their food quality is consistently remarkable and the service is stellar. We were there to celebrate our anniversary on this occasion, and the staff treated us like royalty with complimentary champagne and dessert. The amount of staff to diners must be 1.5 to 1. There...
