Worst crepe I ever had! Buckwheat crepes: Not only do they look bad - they taste just awful. When I sent mine back and declined to re-order, they charged me anyway. No apology, no offer to credit the check. Will never go back and would not recommend the food. Owner/manager/workstaff: Not friendly!!

Just awful - crepes are chewy and thick - filling was almost non-existent; salad was pitiful and the dressing was so full of vinegar, it made you gag. And, the staff are not friendly at all. Will never go back, nor do I recommend anyone to eat there.

Truly enjoyable experience. The pleasant atomosphere took us right back to our trip to Paris! Sat upstairs and the service and food was perfect. There were 3 of us and we were served drinks promptly, given time to look over the extensive menu, and upon ordering, the waiter even took special pains to accommodate one of our party who has celiac disease, so that she could order special and be able to enjoy her visit also, without suffering negatively.
We all enjoyed our meals and also the dessert - crepe with ice cream. Perfect ending. Well, even better was the very reasonable bill that followed.
A great value and highly recommended.
PS: Also have enjoyed similar results from their sister restaurant in Sarasota on Hillview Rd.- 62 Bistrot - quiet and restful atmosphere - same menu and great service.

What a nice place to eat and to get a taste of France! Simple and tasty food with a very reasonable check, less than 10$ per person, what more could you want? We highly recommend this restaurant, staff and owner were so nice and friendly with us and all the people we know who already went fro this great experience. My wife and I are really looking forward to the Dinner opening early November. We don't understand how some people can write such negative comments about the place?

I agree with this writer...both the food and the service at Le Petit Bistrot is first class. We entertained friends and relatives there for the Christmas Holiday and New Years Eve dinners. Eric is a a true Frech chef and creates authentic dishes. In any city this would be a welcome addition. We are grateful they chose our little town of Venice.

Truly authentic french bistro like i used to go to when in Paris. Crepes are same as in France, same taste and this bistro atmosphere was so pleasant and cosy that i would recommend to all who knows a bit about French food and wants to have different experience.

The food has always been excellent and the entire staff has been friendly and professional at each visit. For someone who appreciates French cooking as it should be, this is a fine experience. We have brought friends to breakfast and lunch with us and they too were quite pleased. We intend to return often and enjoy this little corner of Paris.
