We are located in an older house in Kelowna. The heating is bad during the winter and the summer air conditioning sucks. Our chef/owner talks to much and will try to get a glass from your wine.

So why do we get so many 5-Star ratings...

Because we care about our customers enjoyment. We let you bring all your own beverages with no corkage fees. We try to serve good food and at a good price. We do not double book, so you can stay as long as you want...

We have a fixed menu, with options on the main course. We serve soups, salads, crepes, etc...

Our place is small, usually we do not book more that 12 people or 4 tables.

Thanks for reading our rant...

We celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary with dinner at La Petite Maison. This family style dinner was delicious and Jeff provided ongoing entertainment as he cheffed up our dinner.

The set menu was 4-courses and provided ample food. Bring your own wine, Jeff will provided the glasses and an ice bucket if required!

Unfortunately La Petite Maison is closing at the end of December due to rezoning. I would recommend it that if you get a chance to try it out before then, you should!

Wonderful evening with friends in a almost quirky hole-in-a-wall kind of location. The restaurant has a delightfullyhomely and authentic vibe that warms your heart the moment you step in. The French food prepared by the friendly Chef & Owner Geoff were very delicious, not what you would find in a set menu restaurant. Our starter was a salad dish with two slices of Brie and a warm mini buttery croissant, followed by an appetizer crepe in a creamy sauce. Next is the main course that was beef with risotto rice. Everyone was so impressed with the delicious food and friendly service. If you are looking for a lavish restaurant to impress your first date, Le Petit is not for you. If you are looking for an authentic dinner experience, excellent food and good service, check them out you won’t be disappointed.

What a wonderful find. Great food and atmosphere. These days when a lot of restaurants feel they need to blast music plus 6 TV screens all at the same time it was truly a pleasure to have a quite meal and be able to talk. We will return.

Enjoyed an excellent meal and entertaining conversation at the tiny and intimate Petite Maison. Very cute room with a warm and friendly vibe. The chef/owner, Jeff, is as good at engaging his customers as he is at preparing his outstanding french cuisine. A really unique dinner experience. We will definitely be back!

Great dining experience, choices were limited but the food was excellent. Serves a four-course meal with the bonus of bringing your own wine, without charging a corkage fee. Reservations are necessary for this intimate setting and you might want to confirm the day's menu or discuss possible options with the chef.
Considered good value, parking was not an issue, and would certainly visit again.

I really enjoyed our meal at La Petite Maison.
The best way to describe the experience is: quirky, good food, nice atmosphere, something different to try. I would never choose the 4 courses I was given from a menu but enjoyed them all, so that was great to just be served food and it went well! Potato soup, spinach salad, chicken crepes with a side of cabbage, egg cake with cherry compote and vanilla ice cream. The stand out was the cabbage side dish, so tasty and the dressing on the salad. The owner who does it all was lovely, he's a character and I enjoy people who have a bit of personality. Other diners came in and we did have some conversation with them. All in all very nice, and have recommended already to others. The only thing I would suggest to change is the music, play music not the radio station as it's odd when you hear the radio announcers doing their thing. Was in and out in under an hour!

Really enjoyable evening. We brought a bottle of wine which we had purchased at a winery (no corkage fee!!) and were treated to a wonderful four course meal. Everything was delicious. The chef did it all and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend. Excellent value.

We were expecting a bit more upscale French cuisine. What was presented was OK but pretty basic. The beef was essentially pot roast under a sauce and was over cooked

Wonderful food, really good value. About like having a personal chef!
We felt he spent a bit more time talking to us than we would have liked - took away from our time for each other.

Support local business!! Had a great time at this unique spot. Fixed menu but accommodated our dietary needs. Can bring your own wine, and no corkage fees is a huge plus! Super affordable. Owner/chef/waiter (he does it all!) is chatty and will sit down with you for a drink after dinner and tell some unique stories.

We are experinced diners. We assumed much more than we received even the way the dishes were presented. It wouldn't take much more.

I have been to France and most other European countries.in the last 5 years. This was not french cuisine. Being a simple one item on a plate leaves one thinking, where is the rest of the food. Limited presentation.

Flavor was acceptable but short sited. The decor was unimpressive.

The owner was nice but we don't dine for that.

Kelowna needs some high end restaurants.

We had a delightful evening - our first time dining here. Denis was very attentive and Geoff was a great chef/host. My husband enjoyed the fact that he didn't have to make a decision about what to order. You can take your own wine and there's no corkage - fabulous! We will definitely return.

Set menu for $40 per person and the value just was not there. The soup and salad was excellent but the crepes for the main was poor. The service was slow due to over booking. Not going again sorry.
