If you ask the brilliant minds behind Le Petit Paris, Fanny and David Rolland, They will say “We were born in a restaurant, literally”. From Grandpa to father, the restaurant business has been a natural part of their daily life.

They decided 15 years ago to create their first restaurant in Cannes, Le Petit Paris, Parisian brasserie, located in the middle of the international film festival city.

In order to give the opportunity of an unforgettable experience in Cannes to their international clientele, they decided to run a business on the beach with the combination of well being, relaxed and lay down on the beach with a cocktail and enjoying a gastronomic food.

David and Fanny were always striving to be surrounded by great collaborators in order to provide a real “savoir-faire” to their clients. They have been known worldwide now thanks to their hard work and dedication.

Excellent service, delicious food and great décor. (Parking is problematic and it's always best to reserve at least a couple of weeks ahead for brunch).

We were downtown for the weekend and celebrated my husband’s birthday at the Bastille Day brunch here. Attentive staff, amazing food (desserts made me tear up—just lovely), and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable, but perfect for a refined brunch. Highly recommend!

Had a great experience from the moment I walked in. I was meeting a friend for a bday dinner. She was running a bit late, and the host was very understanding. I sat in a small lounge area they have to wait for my friend. The bartender promptly came by to bring me water and offer me the happy hour menu. I placed an order while I waited. When me friend arrived we were seated in a small table right by the stage. They have live music playing in the middle of the restaurant, it was a jazz band, the singer was amazing. The staff was attentive and friendly. My water glass was never half empty. We ordered the burrata and the Cognac Flambéed Truffle Pasta In a Wheel of Parmesan Cheese. Both dishes were delicious, but the pasta was amazing. I liked the table side flambe. For dessert, we got the lava cake which was scrumptious. My friend got a complimentary creme brulee for her birthday. Overall great place for dinner in a LA.

Lets start with customer service over the phone. I called several times to ask different questions and every time someone picked up, they were professional and very kind & informative. I wanted to know the best times and dates to enjoy live performance because we were going to celebrate my brothers birthday. I ended up making the reservation through open table and it was a smooth overall process. The restaurant itself is beautiful, very 1920s speakeasy vibe in a modern classy setting. Everything very clean and detailed. We were a party of 6 and were greeted with a warm smile and walked to our table. Dusan was our waiter, & oh how much a difference an experience becomes when you have an amazing waiter. He was soo welcoming, so kind, so patient & had such a positive energy to him. He recommended a few dishes that we ended up loving & any questions we had, he would go above and beyond to answer and to take care of. We had live music the night we went, Wednesdays between 7:30-9pm & it was great, def added a touch to our dinner. The food was very well & decently portioned as well. I judge places by their house breads and we loved the house breads.

Cons: parking, they have valet however Im no fan of valet parking & neither restrooms had seat covers but downstairs restroom had beautiful art decor. Would recommend Le Petit Paris for sure.

Fabulous from the moment I walked in to the moment I lefts the food was exquisite. I enjoyed the escargot and sea bass. They were both prepared to perfection. The vegetables that came with the sea bass, however were out of this world. I could eat them for days.

Yes, it is pricey but it is well worth it!

Unfortunately we did not enjoy our meal or experience at this restaurant. the food was very bland and yet very pricey. we went specifically for their truffle pasta in a cheese wheel which was almost $70 and it was almost flavorless and cold. we did not feel the staff was all that friendly, and in addition we felt a little sick after which was not pleasant. we were expecting a fine dining experience and traveled from over an hour away, but we were disappointed and it was not worth it at all.

Bloody Mary not as good as before - mix was not as full-bodied; penne is too hardy for the flambéed pasta. A fettucini or linguini preferable.

Le Petit Paris is one of the finest restaurants in all Los Angeles. The entire staff from the moment we walked in was outstanding. Sasha was gracious. Chris the bartender was smart & informative as was his co-bartender. And the server handling the pepper mill can really sing! The repurposed design of the restaurant was clever & enchanting. Can't wait to return. Thanks to everyone for a delightful evening

Have dined here several times before. It used to be a very nice place for a relaxed dinner. Now they had a band with OK repertoire and a mediocre singer, but so loud that it is no longer an elegant dinner with a chance to have a conversation. You have to scream to be heard across the table. Disappointed

The appetizers were better than the entrees, service started out well but by the end of the night we were mostly ignored. We asked one server to pack our leftovers, he disappeared and never returned. Then we asked another server to pack them, he piled our plates on top another, with the bottom touching the food we wanted to take home, treating the food like discards. It was not a pleasant sight. The ladies' room was filthy, not what you expect from a restaurant of this calibre. The noise level was ridiculous, and the tables were so close to each other we heard the neighbor's conversation more than our own. NOT a good place for date night if you want intimacy or a chance to chit chat.

Nothing to write home about. Except for maybe those 3 foot pepper shakers--What are those even about except to make you feel crazy when they are grinding it over your meal?!? It's fine. But that's as far as I'll go with it. The food is average, but expensive for what you get. The burger is great, but...still expensive. We had the cheese plate...OK. The lamb shank...OK. The service...OK.

We came for delicious French cuisine and their weekly jazz, and they met all our expectations! The space and ambience had that vintage European feel, and it was a wonderful break from DTLA. We 3 split beef and salmon tartare and the sea bass and scallop truffle risotto entrees; and all were presented beautifully and tasted seasoned and delicious. We had a bottle of rose, then for dessert split the lava cake and each had a glass of chateau neuf de pape while listening to vintage jazz. Wonderful escape from the world! Service by Benny was fabulous; our waiter was not as present once the customers came.

We want to return for the happy hour another time soon.

Our reservation was 20:30hrs. we arrived 15 minutes before, so they didn’t have the table ready, that’s ok, so we waited at the bar. But!!! The table was ready till 21:10hrs. 40 minutes after the time of our reservation!!! The food was excellent but the timing between plates no so good.

Investment in this place was clearly on the decor and not the food. They have all the standard French fair and it looks like a fancy French restaurant inside. But the food was mediocre at best (duck confit, escargots--who puts pesto in escargots?, veal, creme brulee). We arrived early for our reservation so we had to wait a bit (which is fair) so we ordered drinks, then our table was ready but our drinks weren't, so they forced us to wait for the drinks so we could close out so THEN we could proceed to our table. I was surprised they'd make us wait longer for ordering drinks (I would have much preferred that we'd proceed to our table, the drinks delivered to our table, and applied to our bill at the table-i.e. minimizing inconvenience to the paying customer at this fine dining establishment).

Authentic and delicious (more European size portions). The ambiance is far beyond what you might ever imagine from the outside of this otherwise fairly nondescript building. Great for special occasions or nice brunch with friends.

Wednesday night jazz from 7:30-9:30 made this experience one of the most romantic nights of my entire life. The food, service, and ambiance were all unbelievable, the live music made it truly unforgettable. Ordered the truffle pasta prepared table side in the Parmesan wheel, what a dining experience. My date had the Dover Sole Meunière, also prepared table side. Truly amazing.
