I agree with the others- great food, good service, excellent prices. It's hard these days to find a restaurant where you can get a terrific dinner with a drink for under $20, but its possible here. Great mussels, steaks, fries, beers, etc. The mac and cheese is the best!!

We started w/tomato-basil soup & fish chowder-both were terrific. The mussels were great & the Belgian beef stew was out of this world. The frites are cooked just right & lightly salted. No complaints about the service-it's very attentive, professional & friendly. So much so that we left a $10 tip on a $44 tab. The decor is casual, the prices are reasonable-we would definately go back on our next visit to the city.

I am a long time PCV resident and was thrilled that Petite opened here (and I hope more to follow) but I didn't like the coffee that is served here. I no longer go for breakfast based on that. But, the burgers are good and the mac and cheese is fantastic. Likewise the mussels and frites terrific. Note that the soda is sometimes flat as well. I wish the restaurant would correct those few problems to become even better.

I happen to live in PCV as well, but would have gone here even if I didn't. The burgers are seasoned perfectly, the fries are crispy, the mussels are tasty, and the omelettes are a great option for lunchtime. To top it off, their happy hour offers 2 for 1 Belgian beers at the bar (which if you know anything about Belgian beers they are usually between 8-12 dollars per bottle, so this is quite a bargain.) Also be sure to try the beef or chicken stews, roasted chicken, salads. I have never been disappointed by the food, but service-wise it once took an hour and a half for a portion of mussels and fries (last spring).

I must agree with a bunch of the other reviews- the service is hit or miss. I'm always treated when I go with my gals rather than my boyfriend and when I order on the phone I always order in French. It just simplifies the process. Go on one of the special nights- "All You Can Eat Mussels" or "Lobster Night" as their mussels and lobster are delicious. However, my two favorite things are the Petite Abeille Burger which comes with a really interesting sauce and a Vanilla Milkshake. They are also one of the few places I've found so far that has Westmalle Triple- a really great tasty beer. It goes for around 7$ a glass, which pales in comparison to the 13$ it costs up around Times Square. It's not really expensive- I mean this is New York. If you just want something simple- cross the street to Ess-A-Bagel.

As a long time resident of PCV I can not over emphasize what a wonderful addition Petite Abeille has been to our neighborhood. I have now enjoyed over a dozen meals with them and have yet to be disappointed. Petite Abeille is the only restaurant on 1st Ave that has been able to persuade me to stay in the neighborhood instead of heading to Union Sq or farther a field. My thanks to the PA Team.

I think no one on this page knows what they are talking about. Le Petite Abeille is an awesome place to eat. I eat there at least once a week. The food, service and atmosphere are great! People need to get better taste.
