Exquisite French Cuisine in NoHo

This place had the all around package: from a beautiful chateau ambience to delicious food to nice service waiters. What more could you ask for. Yes, this place may be a bit pricey, but it's definitely a place for nice occasions and you're sure to enjoy yourself. The food is exquisite. I had the half duck and I couldn't decide whether to choose the cherry or orange glaze, so the waitress gave me a full dose of both. The sauces are so rich and tasty. My partner ordered a delicious filet minon wrapped in a rich. The best part for me were the complimentary liver pate on their lightly buttered and toasted french bread. Truly to die for.

Very happy with the service and I'd definitely go back.

Worst service I have ever experienced. First, we called ahead to ask questions about a gift certificate. We were told to call back to talk to a manager. We did and they assured us there would be no problem with our certificates. Of course right away there was a problem, made worse by the owners insistence that no body would ever tell us that on the phone. So basically he's calling me a liar within 5 minutes of walking into the place. Nice. Then we say down and it took them 15-20 minutes before we even got menus. Did I mention this place was DEAD for a saturday night? The waitress never filled our glasses of water once, thankfully we flagged down another waitress who helped us out. It took a half hour for 3 medium wellington's and one beef medallion to be served. And they forgot the sauce for the wellington, the waitress brought it out after 2 of us were already done eating and didn't really care at all. We ended up not using our gift certificates so we didn't have to tip 18%, instead we left $6 for a check of $182. Hope they get the message. Save your money for a place that deserves it. Worst service ever, felt like we were at a Chili's or something.

Are people who eat here without tastebuds?

I can't believe that the reviews here are ""real"". You can't call this expensive place
""great french food"" - it doesn't even qualify for ""great"" in the same sentence as ""food"".
Great ripoff, great location, great if you know nothing about french food, but no, not great food.
Expensive, outdated (which we don't care if the food would be good)

Stunning Food and Service

You know things are a bit different when, on the way in, the doors are all labeled in French. Inside, you pass the bar and are seated in a room filled with charming ambience. The lighting, appropriately subdued. The service, impeccable. We ordered from the Tuesday special, printed separately from the menu and only +/- $27 for soup/salad, main course, and dessert, augmented by a menu item or two.

The food was perfect. Having dined at many French places, Le Petit Chateau elevates the cuisine over most of the competition, quite a surprise for the valley. We had a good French onion soup, a well made mixed green salad, stuffed chicken medallions, and I had a pasta dish (think pasta primavera elevated to genuine cuisine) accented by prosciutto. Fantastic.

Treated to an overall elegant presentation, when it came to the dessert, it was characteristically, and as expected, artful, with a twist (my memory banks could not register a match for the interesting bread pudding over creme fraiche I had) which spoke to in-house preparation which often is sorely lacking in restaurants of this caliber. Commercial pastry shops often insult a good menu. Not at Le Petit.

In closing, go someday and you may find me there. It is a menu worth the exploration!

i really hope that ""the rude owner""

Told Franck ""below"" to eat at Mc Donalds next time. This guy do not have a clue of what ""fine dining"" is all about!!
And if the waitresses are aging a little, is just because they have been kept on the staff due to the excellent service they have done thru the years.
I know, i am aging too, and always glad to go back again and again at le petit chateau.

Not Worth it

this place is expensive and not worth the food. Owner is rude and sits at the bar. All the waitresses are old women.
Place is in a dark corner, food is ok but not great

Romantic atmosphere for a quiet, leisurely dinner w/ friends or a special someone

One of my favorite restaurants. Pricey but worth it. Wonderful appetizers (escargot, salads, etc). Beef Wellington, lamb chops, are always made exactly to order. Specials & fish are excellent. Great bernaise sauces. Start with a cocktail, incredible range of martinis & they don't water the drinks. Home baked French bread, unsalted butter and save room for fantastic desserts. Creme brulee, flourless chocolate cake. Wonderful older waitress, don't blame the wait staff for the slow busboy service. I've eaten here 1--2 a year for the past 5 years & have never been disappointed. We have never done the wine tasting dinners, but for wine lovers, they are terrific. Highly recommended. NOT for children.

If you want a real french dinner ........this is it !!!!

I should know......i'm french , and i have for a long time searched for a great , affordable french restaurant in los angeles , now i found it !!!
I had my first dinner 2 weeks ago , since then i could not resist , and went back 7 times, and had a wonderfull dining experience every single time , the waiters are very friendly and attentive......... my favorites the duck , the sweetbreads (the only place in town you should eat sweetbread)... A GOOD TIP ... do not have any deserts , or you'll have another ,then another ..
i cannot wait to go and try my first wine pairing dinner , i understand they have one every month.

Discover for yourself the elegance of Le Petit Chateau

Joined a Friend at this little French Country Restaurent for a truly amazing ""Dinning Experience"". Superb food and cocktails with an exceptional Wine List. Great atmosphere! Great service! I will definitely dine there again. Highly recommdnded.

I agree it is not worth the $$$

There is little reason to patronize a dated and overpriced restaurant like Petit Chateau anymore, particularly when so many excellent choices are available where management strives for customer satisfaction, rather than seeing the customer, and possibly even the staff, as their innocent prey.

Don't waste your $$$

My wife and I dine all the time and for some reason one night we made one of our worst decisions of our lives. The inside of the place is stuck in the 70's, they need to refurnish ASAP. The waitresses look like Flo from Alice. There was hardly anyone in this place. The food was the worst French food I have ever had and not to mention the rude service. It's easy to spend $100 + in the this joint. The drinks are small. We had a couple of martinis in the smallest martiniy glasses I have ever seen. I rather donate $100 to a charity and eat a good hamburger. On second thought they don't need to replace the furniture they should call it mel's Diner. STAY AWAY!

Most romantic restaurant in town

i have been going to this restaurant for years now. this is by far the best restaurant i have ever been to. the service is superior. the owners are lovely. it is very romantic!! be prepared to spend about $100 for 2 for dinner, but well worth it. everything on the menu taste amazing. they also have wine pairings about every 6 weeks...they are the best. i would highly recomend this place if you are looking for a romantic evening out. there is also vallet in the rear, so no worring about parking. i can't rave enough about this place. i have been to most of the high end restaurants in town and they all pale in comparison. make sure to call and make reservations!!
