Endless mussels in a variety of sauces. That plus a good beer are the ingredients of a fun meal. The mussels are always delicious. The burgers and sandwiches are good too. This is a small comfortable restaurant. Nothing fancy, just good food.

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!

Pros: I didn't get poisoned

Cons: The food is days old.

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...

Pros: Great neighborhood place, the wait staff are really nice, you get seated quickly

Cons: Booooring menu

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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!

This is the finest installment in the small La Petite Abeille chain. Tintin and checked tablecloths still feature heavily but this continental-style bistro borders on classy.

The food is reliably excellent. Eggs Benedict and freshly made waffles make a superb brunch. Moreover, you have the choice of a few dozen Belgian ales (a few of them on tap). There's a small bar area, so you can skip the meal and concentrate on the fantastic beers.

The service is very friendly, but notoriously inefficient. I'd budget one forgotten order per visit. If you can take that in good humour you'll keep coming back to this charming place.

My wife and I had brunch here with another couple on a Sunday morning. The food and atmosphere were good, but the service was a bit stereo typical. After the waiter brought out eveyone but my wife's order, he walked away. We assumed that he left to get her dish. After about 5 minutes, we called our waiter over and asked what happened to her food. His reply to her was "You ordered something?"...not the right response. He went to compare the "tape" to his notepad and saw he forgot to put her order in! My wife had to watch us eat until they brought her food and then was the only one eating once she was served. The waiter said to us "it was my fault, I forgot to enter the order. I just put it in", but in my book that's not really an apology.

Petite Abeille is a truly friendly neighborhood spot that always makes us feel at home. The service is always sincere and the ambiance is super non-protentious. All the dishes especially the chicken pot pie and fish stew are delicious adn the mussels are the freshest I've had in the city-ever!!! They also have a great selection of international beers to go with your dish.

Editorial from

This tiny TriBeCa eatery offers high-quality, hearty Belgian grub in an elegant yet casual and comfortable setting. The house specialty---buckets of fresh mussels flavored with garlic, fennel and tomato---is worth the wait at this…
