    Very cute Bistro in South End. I loved the steak frite, and the escargot. The salad not so much! The plates are small but this is known in French restaurants!

    I have always enjoyed it here however the cut of meat for the Steak Frites was tough. I would suggest giving a smaller but more tender cut of beef.

    Absolutely my favorite restaurant in Boston. Due to the pandemic I haven’t been in 6 years and it was just as excellent now. Yurus was an excellent and friendly server and we shared many worldly stories. The food was beyond outstanding. If you haven’t been you don’t know what you are missing. Thank You Petit Robert for a wonderful evening.

    It's an adorable spot inside and outside, and the service was good: friendly and attentive, however, its extremely pricey, and I don't feel it's a strong enough value that I would return for dinner, but perhaps a drink. I ordered a fish dish, that tasted great, but the plate and presentation didn't appeal to me: the colors of the dish were, at first glance, unappetizing. The bread was also stale. No one wants a stale baguette. If money isn't an issue, live it up at Petit Robert!

    We normally love Petit Robert, this time service was very poor. Hopefully just one time is no time. Please be more attentive.
