I have been eating at this NYC chain for probably 10 years. Unfortunately, all of the locations have gone downhill. I ate on 9/2 and it was a beautiful day...inside and outside were packed. The staff was just simply overwhelmed. If the restaurant can't service so many people than they shouldn't seat it full. A burger came out with a completely soggy bun...drenched in grease. Had to eat with a fork and knife and only the top bun. One omelette came out woefully undercooked. Getting a refill on water or coffee was difficult. Busboys would fly by with water but pass our empty glasses. I don't get that. Disappointing....

Who ever heard of soggy fries in a Belgian restaurant? When it first opened, this place was great but it has had a long and noisy slide downhill since. The customers tend to get very drunk and very, very loud...so only go if you are planning to shout at those you are with. Our service two weeks ago was slow, slow, and slower. Forget it for dinner...go for lunch or just for the beer.

Incredibly mediocre food and wine in a location that calls for much more. In a town with this many choices, why waste time in such a place. Except that elderly Peter Cooper & Stuy Town folks find it accessible. If something decent opened up across the street, Petite Abeille would be empty in 5 minutes flat.

We came to Petite Abeille after a movie on a Monday night aroudn 10pm. The bar area was pretty crowded but we were quickly shown to a table. Our server was incredibly attentive and recommended great beers for us to try (and even said he would bring us others if we didn't like them). Perfect level of service -- not overly attentive, but always there if you needed something. He even moved the neighboring empty table closer to ours when he saw that we had a lot of plates on the table. The food was also amazing -- we got the Grand-Mere mussles and Boulettes Sauce Tomate (spaghetti and meatballs) to share and both were just perfect. I would have drank the sauce the mussles were in if I could have. If I had to knitpick, I would say that the music could have been a bit softer (we had to really speak up to hear one another) but overall it was a great neighborhood-y atmosphere and we will come back again!

Petite has very good burgers and baked chicken. They dress their greens well too. My husband and I have tried some of the other mains, but were not impressed. In good weather, the outdoor seating is great, but it's cozy inside in the winter. The Belgian beer selection is very good and the small bar is welcoming for an after work drink. Brunch was decent, but it's a mad house and not worth the price. We probably wouldn't go here as often as we do (every other week or so) if it weren't so convenient, but in the desert of restaurants that is PCV/StuyTown this is an oasis.

Ok so the service was AWFUL. had to request bread (twice), ketchup and to refill our water glasses. HOWEVER, the food was great. the mussels were delicious and we got the waffle and gelato which was amazing! the only negative thing about the food was that the fries werent that great, but it left more room for the amazing mussels. they also have an extensive beer selection. overrall i would highly recommend this cute place even though the service needs improvement.
