Le Petit Bistro has been a West Hollywood landmark for as far back as I can remember. They offer a fairly authentic French Bistro menu that has been Americanized over the years. I lived for 3 years near the Germany, Luxembourg and France border so I have eaten in my fair share of real French Bistro's and while Le Petit Bistro does capture some of that authenticity, it is very clear to me that over the many decades that they have been in business the restaurant has become more and more Americanized. This Americanization has filtered down to all aspects of the restaurant not just the food. Don't get me wrong, this is a very comfortable, cozy and romantic restaurant. I have had a few dishes here that were fine but were nothing that really excited me. That is not the norm though and for the most part, the food has always been very well prepared. While the food may not be authentic when compared to what you would be served in France, it is still very much French cuisine (adjusted for an American palette). The big red booths inside the restaurant have a very intimate feel and are a great choice for a romantic dinner date. They also have an outdoor patio that I'd very popular on those warm and beautiful southern California sorting and summer nights. Even though I thought that their cuisine has lost a bit of its authenticity over the years, this is still a primarily French cuisine restaurant and if you have a hankering for some French food, this place should be high on your list of restaurants to try.

Pork chop was too well done for my taste, but flavors are good. The reason we came for, the chocolate soufflé was good!

I took the 24.95$ menu with appetizer, entree and dessert and it was delicious. I had the Brie appetizer, the baby lamb chops and the creme brulée. The service was very friendly too. I highly recommend this place :)

Le Petit Bistro has comfortable red booths for a delightful traditional French dinner. When you open the menu, the specials are on the back page. There are at least four appetizers and four entrees that change daily. Guests receive a basket of crunchy crust French bread served with a dish of roasted eggplant tapenade and hummus to be spread on top. The restaurant’s specialties include lamb chops, grilled entrecote steak and the Moroccan Merguez a la Harissa. Looking over the two page wine list, we recognized some good California and International wines that were reasonably priced. A number of French wines are from 1990 to 2009. Guests may also enjoy a nice bottle from Italy or Chile. There are five options for champagne and sparkling. We started with a generous glass of 2011 Reserva Chardonnay Valle de Casablanca from Chile. It was fruity with notes of apricot, yet not too sweet. My husband ordered a full body Chateau D’arthus red Bordeaux. On the palate it bursts with notes of juicy black berry fruit, minerals and chocolate. Both were excellent wines to accompany our appetizers of spicy shrimp and eggplant tart. The Shrimp is known around town for its secret spices with a touch of rosemary. The eggplant was tender on a bed of spinach, onion, basil and tomatoes. I liked the Sole a la Provencale with tomato, kalamata olive, and a white wine sauce very much. My husband’s duck confit was cooked perfectly. Two generous legs were well browned and crisp. The accompanying vegetables were cooked al dente style and not too soft. Be sure to allow 15 minutes for the chocolate soufflé with crème anglase, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. It tastes just like the a soufflé in France. Other desserts include the traditional crepe Suzette with orange Grand Marnier, a hazelnut gelato with hot chocolate and almonds, an apple tart “a la mode” with caramel sauce and a pot de chocolate with creamy chocolate mousse.

The sweetest and funniest waitress I ever witnessed served us that night, and can you imagine, her name was Delfina, as my favorite animal! Sorry, drunk as I'm writing this, but the food and the service were truly outstanding! We ll be back.
