Prepackaged Weeks Old Roast Turkey on rock hard stale bread. West Broadway – Ordered a Turkey Swiss Sandwich over the phone and asked how long should I wait before picking up the sandwich, the man said 5 minutes. That should have gave me a clue. I got there and paid $8.00 plus had to pay a tip of $1.44, required. Got back to work and opened my prepackaged sandwich with American cheese on it instead of Swiss cheese. Then I noticed the tomatoes were all smashed and the lettuce was welted. At least the mayo was fresh. The turkey was very hard and tasted like it was left over from 2007 Thanksgiving, no kidding! Of course the baguette is suppose to be hard but not stale and rock hard. Don't even bother to eat or order from this place. For the price of food the food should be freshly made! Close them down!
Very cute neighborhood place... great standby – Petite Abeille has so many great things about it... great hot chocolate, the fries are pretty good, burgers are always a good thing and great beer selection. Apple pie also is wonderful. However, for all the great reviews, there is nothing that really pops out. I have had the roast chicken (gross), the specials sound better than they taste, the steak au poivre is good but sometimes boring. I think the menu needs an update because I just don't know what to order anymore...
one of my favorite restaurants in the city – This is really a cute place and a great bargain. Mussels are good, beer selection is very good and for some reason the mac-n-cheese is terrific. I am yet to find better in nyc.
Been there quite a few times and admittedly have to say dinner menu seems to impress more than the brunch one.
Definitely a great neighborhood choice and a lot more bang for for your buck than Odeon across the street. I think the chef's kids were even eating in a table in the back one Friday night - which just seemed to add to the cuteness.
Bad experience at Petite Abeille – The other night, I ordered a hamburger and my girlfriend ordered mussels not a hard combination. The hamburger showed up long before the mussels, and the waiter suggested I start eating because he didnt want my food to get cold. Before I could ask why they didnt come out at the same time, he said theyre boiling.
Is it impossible to boil mussels while a hamburger is cooking?
When the mussels came, they were small and tough. (Just for the record my hamburger was over cooked.) At the end of the meal I told the manager I was dissatisfied. He offered to take some money off the bill. Instead I told him Id simply find another place to eat in the future.
There are so many good places nearby.
A great little place for any occasion – Good wholesome food, some of the best french fries (or should that be Belgian fries?) in New York and great, friendly service. What more could you want?
This place is great anytime - for a quick early evening drink with an appetizer - such as their excellent mussels - or for a full meal with wine. The atmosphere is relaxed and non-pretentious - almost cosy. And in the summer, they have outdoor seating, so you can relax on a warm evening and watch the world go by as you order yet another pint of Stella to toast Petite Abeille.
User review by spoks – perfect for brunch. yummy omelettes and their waffles are to die for!
Charming – I went for lunch during a weekday so business was steady but the restaurant wasn't crowded. The space was charming and comfortable. The chicken stew was served in a heavy mushroom sauce with a side of fries. It was filling and delicious. You could easily get a sandwich lunch for less than $7, but the other entrees are around $13. I thought the flat-screen TV behind the bar was a little out of place, but not too loud or distracting.
Worst service ever – I used to go to the Petite Abeille on 14th street, which I highly recommended to several friends. Now that it has been closed, I tried this one on W Broadway: bad idea. The mussels are not even close to the ones that they used to serve on 14th street and the service......after havinng being really sloppy all night and having forgotten about our orders at least twice, the waitress complained that her tip was 3 dollars short of 15% and she told me it would have been very rude of me not to add them to my credit card charge!!!!
Always a Hit – The food is always reliably remarkably tasty!!!! Even the non-Belgian dishes are delicous.
Petite ABeille's brunch is one to remember from the waffles with exotic fruit, french toast, eggs benedict and even the coffee!!!!
I love this little chain of restaurants.
The ambience on Thursday night (Lobster Night) is a lot of fun!
Comforting, savory fare at this Tribeca installment of the Belgian chain. – The Scene
It's easy to forget you're in Tribeca in this charming, countrified space, dominated by a dark wood bar and booths. The room is high-ceilinged but cozy, with Tintin prints and memorabilia brightening every corner. Francophone waitstaff add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to the ambiance.
Belgium knows a thing or two about delicious food, and Petite Abeille offers solid versions of some national classics. Everything on the menu is satisfyingly savory, from a simple pot of mussels in a choice of sauces (beer-and-bacon, creamy mushroom, or white-wine-and-garlic broth), to beef stewed with beer and prunes, to a juicy croque-monsieur, and beyond. The pommes frites are top-notch, and there's an impressive array of Belgian beers to pair with your meal. Desserts, by and large, are missable, but chances are you won't have room left anyway.
