On Saturday mornings from April to October the Bloomington Farmers Market opens up down the street and the B-line trail gets rather busy with people walking to and from the market. Since this restaurant has a big sliding window from the kitchen to the B-line trail, they have set out a big shade umbrella and a menu chalkboard to give... More

This restaurant's theme is to keep the menu small, local, and fresh. For the most part, it accomplishes this. It is VERY laid back. Wine is either in a carafe, or a glass, and the choice is limited to white and red. I enjoyed the two entrees that we had, and the country style veggies served to the four of... More

My husband and I are long time area residents, yet this was our first visit to Le Petit. We have always wanted to try it, had heard good things, so when the Devour menu came out we decided to stop by. We had great service from the get go, the wait staff was very friendly. The food was delicious and... More

I came all the way from Hong Kong for a day to give my wife a surprise visit on her birthday. We reserved a table for Valentine's Day in 2017. It was a USD 50 three course prix fixe dinner. The food and service were disasters. We did not get one course, the steak was charred, and the waiters had... More

Upon entering this cozy establishment operated by a nice couple, you will believe that you are dining somewhere in Europe. Limited menu that changes daily, but you will not be disappointed.

A menu on a board features 4 - 5 choices (beef, fowl, fish and vegetarian) per evening. Vegetables are served family style. Separate choices of homemade desserts. Food is cooked to your specifications. Owners do the cooking and order taking and talk with you while you order and eat. Very friendly and European atmosphere with tables for smaller groups.

My colleague and I tried the Tuesday special crepe with soup or salad. A delightful lunch at an incredibly low price. The crepes were perfectly cooked and the sides were fresh and delicious.

Last time I was here, 5 years ago, the food, service and ambience were easily 5 stars. It has been getting not so favorable reviews, but I came back. Well, the food is still good with a great French accent, service was not maintained at the high level, and somehow the atmosphere lost an inch. Yet, I still think it... More
