J'adore la petite france!!

My husband and I have driven by this restaurant many times and we finally decided to try it. We had a lovely evening that included great food and wonderful service. If you are looking for a unique dining experience and want to try something new, support this little slice of France.

A Bistro-sized Restaurant Experience

We again enjoyed their competent, if not exactly traditional, French cuisine in this ageless little restaurant where only the staff and prices have changed much since our last visit 21 years ago. The smooth, deep red bisque was a lighter rendering of the item where tomato paste replaced the the usual heavy cream and butter finish. It was appreciated and the rich flavor of the lobster stock and purée still shone through. Our darnes of salmon were perfectly cooked and served over plain rice then napped with a béchamel sauce gently infused with flecks of sorrel that imparted little of their bitterness. The accompanying bouquet of vegetables included broccoli, baked eggplant slices, carrot sticks and toothsome zucchini slices, all perfectly cooked. Why can't more restaurants serve an adequate amount of vegetables cooked this well? Their food temperatures couldn't be improved upon. We finished this leisurely dinner with a rich caramel custard and freshly brewed strong coffee. Service throughout was friendly, capable and certainly not rushed. Parking on the street here is scant but there is a public lot a block and a half east on the north side of Bloor.

The food was absolutely incredible. It was difficult to choose among such palatable dishes, but I fared well. I have rarely had ecargot as good as from la petite france. The lamb was tender and the berry sauce finished it off perfectly. And for dessert - well, this has to be the best creme brulee I have ever tasted. My compliments to the chef and the new owners!

I was compeletely swept away in this, my first visit to this french culinary gem. The starter, fois gras with pears, was truly amazing and the rabbit stew was not far behind. The new owners are friendly and add a very personable ambiance and a care for quality that is readily experienced. A must!

My wife and myself continue to dine at this special resteraunt. Since my last review we have hosted at least 100 friends and colleagues there. Under new managemnt and refurbished-but with Gilbert still the Chef-there is nothing better in this city.

This is the best authentic french cuisine I have ever had in Toronto!This lovely little seemingly undiscovered gem has been under new ownership for the past 6 months and it shows! Renovated, the decor is simple, yet elegant with warm hues reminiscent of the south of France with charles Aznavour's wonderful voice serenating in the background. Most importantly though, the food was exceptional. My husband had escargots and I had moules marinieres to start, steamed mussels infused in white wine with just the right dose of garlic and shallots. The lovely hostess recommended the Rack of lamb with fresh herbs, that is Ontario Lamb! It was wonderfully flavorful, it just melts in your mouth. My husband had teh poached fillet of sole with a smoked salmon filling which he loves.My dessert, the creme brulee was to die for! We both also really appreciated the attention to details shown throughout the evening, the staff was attentive without being intrusive. An all around beautiful culinary experience which we can't wait to relive. Highly, highly recommended!!!

We,along with literally dozens of friends and family,have been regulars at La Petite France since the first week opf its opening 17 years ago. We have celebrated numerous occassions there and indeed have had both of our daughters' weddings catered by the restaraunt. We have nothing but praise for the food and the service. Some of the comments made by others are entirely inaccurate.

Owner/waiter was completely rude and mostly invisible throughout the meal. He spent the evening on the house phone having a personal conversation, just 10 ft from our table. The overpriced duck was dry and tastless, as were the coq au vin and the lambshanks. Don't waste your money, this only thing french about this place is the attitude!
