Love the food! It is always consistently delicious. The service was very slow though.we were seated and had to go to the bar for water. I believe they may have been understaffed that evening though. As always we will definitely be back, it's worth the wait!

We had frog legs for the first time and they were great. The waitress and staff were very friendly.

We couldn't be more happier about our experience and meal at Petit Valentien! Despite being obviously busy, our server made us feel special and relaxed. Two thumbs up! :)

When we arrived, we had to stand around for a couple of minutes before being helped, which is awkward as there is no where to wait. We were early, and weren't expecting to be seated right away, but the server who finally came to help us almost berated us, rudely and bluntly telling us she couldn't seat us right away. What she could and should have said was that we were welcome to have a seat at the bar until a table opened up (which is where we ended up eating). We eventually realized that they seemed to be short-staffed, but her attitude set the tone for the evening. Another thing is that it is unbelievable to me that a restaurant charges for bread. A BIG no-no in my book. Also, we could see directly into the kitchen from where we were sitting at the bar, dirty dishes and all. A screen in front of the kitchen would have been nice. The young woman who served us was very good, and the food was delicious. But we will probably not go back.
