The fish is very well done here, I had softshell crabs the last time I went here and really enjoyed them. It's not inexpensive, but you bring your own bottle, so save that way. Petite Crevette is nestled in a very small (eclectically decorated) space,...More

Corn crab chowder at $10 a bowl was nothing more than bland cream soup, hardly a taste of crab. Sautéed snapper was ok but at $28 not exceptional. Haricot salad was no big deal. Doubt that I'll give this one a second try.

If you're looking for an authentic, local experience with fresh and amazing fish, this is the place. In a very quiet neighborhood, this place is a hidden gem. Worth the trek

My husband and I went to Petite Crevette for a special celebration and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is very small, does not take reservations, is B.Y.O.B. and is cash only! With all of those elements, it's affordable, but often hard to get into,...More

I really wanted to love this place; it is so quaint and cute! It's a BYOB, so don't forget the wine! In a nutshell: the menu was rather limited and food was average. It also wasn't the traditional French food that I was expecting. The...More

The food was very good but I would not say excellent. The service was excellent . Brooklyn has so many choices fine dining it is hard to separate yourself from all the other great places. The restaurant is very small and some would say intimate....More
