I've had three experiences at LaPetite and all have been exceptional. I've had several fish dishes and I'm always tempted by the LPG burger so that is a must have on my next visit. Great food, great service, cool place and a must not miss.

This restaurant has a nice menu, the food is good, but nothing was special. We sampled the shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, "best hamburger", Brussels sprouts and all were good. In a city with many fabulous restaurants, this is not one of them.

Great neighborhood place in the Garden District. Well executed drink and food. If you are staying in the French Quarter, take the trolley with a nice walk before and after your meal.

Fabulous little restaurant with a very interesting menu. We shared the fried oyster appetizer which was fabulous (4 huge oysters flash fried) and then order the yellowfin tuna entree and shrimp and grits. Both were delicious except I am not a fan of bacon and...More

We weren't able to get a table inside, but fortunately it was a great day, the weather was beautiful, and so we took one of two outside tables. Our waiter was very nice, but a tad slow. Probably because he had a lot of walking...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
