I have made my way here a few times over the two years, and I always enjoy my meals. There's fare you'd expect at a French bistro along with some unusual and interesting specials. The servers are knowledgeable, and go out of their way to make a solo diner feel comfortable.

My teenage daughter requested we visit Paris 66 for her birthday, on recommendation from her Paris-born French teacher, and I am so glad we did! The restaurant's website is fantastic, so making reservations was easy, and we were able to peruse the menu ahead of time to help the picky 10-year-old little brother find a satisfactory option. Our server was... More

We were invited by a friend to dine at Paris 66 on a recent visit to the city, and were so charmed by the delightful staff and marvelous food that we went back again for lunch that same weekend! There is a true French bistro ambiance that invites you to sit back, relax & visit without feeling any pressure to... More

We were so excited to have a delicious French meal, but we did not get that. The service was below average- the waitress was uninformed & MIA much of the time. The $5 bottle of carbonated mineral water tasted strongly metallic & the mineral content was not on the bottle- Gee, I wonder why.... Neither appetizers are worth mentioning and... More

This is an absolutely charming find: Intimate, very French, and with excellent food. There is a nice patio out back for exterior dining. The night we went they were out of quenelles, which I'll surely go back for. We made do with escargots, a delicious veal dish, and out-of this-world pastry dessert, along with a gluten-free choice. We watched go... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here; the food is okay, the dining room is very noisy, and the service was harried. And the coffee was dreadful! That being said, it isn't a terrible place, and will do in a pinch. (Having been to Paris, I think I can say that this place is not doing justice... More

Since we had 6 people the tip was to be added automatically and therefor the waiter paid little attention to our table since he was guaranteed his tip. Service was slow although the restaurant was not busy . The food was good but not grate for... More

Very good representation of a classic French bistrot with very credible selection of food...mussels, steak/frites, bouillabaisse, sausages, creme brulee, and be sure to have some of the macaroons. The pastry chef came from Laduree in Paris and has recreated the macroons. Comfortable atmosphere, and good , caring service from the waitstaff.

We decided on this restaurant because it advertised itself as gluten-free friendly, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food -- not to mention hearing some wait staff speaking authentically accented French (in Pittsburgh!). One of us had moules frites, basic but but tasty. A veal dish and seafood pasta also got rave reviews. Being a celiac, I... More

Charming place with very professional and attentive staff. There appeared to be a lot of regular, local customers. We enjoyed the food, but I did find the prices rather high. And the onion soup, while very good, was quite salty. We didn't have time to try desert, which looked excellent.
