High quality French cuisine in a comfortable setting

Lovely French bistro near the Pike Place Market, but far enough away to enjoy the atmosphere.. Small restaurant, but the food is excellent. Recommended by a waiter from a previous night's restaurant as a small local neighborhood restaurant and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent, but be... read more

A good friend said we had to go here and she was right. Great food, delicious eggs and bread. Croissants amazing and chocolate dessert excellent. Would go back in a heart beat

We stumbled upon Le Pichet and were glad we did! The service was slow, but good. The pastry we ordered was so delicious. We ordered two of the eggs and cheese baked in ham (please don't ask me to look up the actual name) and that was very good. Was not much else on the menu though that was "breakfasty/brunchy"...

My daughter and SIL wanted to try this restaurant and they knew that my husband and I both love french food. Unfortunately, everything from the wine to the starters to the main was average at best. All wines are from France and having lived in Europe for several years my husband and I were not impressed with the choices although... More

This place is so sweet. I have visited France many times and it just felt so similar. I went for a business dinner and had the muscles/frites and beers. The rest of the table's food also rendered mmm and yums so it was just wonderful. The place felt so European but not in the stuffy way. I came back the... More

Or Pichet really does a nice job - it reminded me of restaurants in Paris. The focus is on simply prepared fresh foods. The host initially told us it would be a long wait. He took our name and number to call us. We had made it only halfway down the block before he caught up with us to let... More

We came to the place on early afternoon Saturday. The seating availability at such time is a draw of luck. We were fortunate to have a nice corner seat by the window observing the place and visitors. The service was prompt and menu was ample to chose from. Wine list was ample to pick from. The food was delicious and... More

This has always been one of our favorite Seattle restaurants, and it did not disappoint on our most recent visit - in fact it was our favorite meal during our stay. It's not fancy but very authentic, and the prices are very reasonable.

Friends and I got together to try this restaurant. Luckily as soon as we entered there were seats available. Menu was in French with small English translation. We all decided on sandwiches. The sandwiches weren't exactly what we were expecting for they had no lettuce, tomato and other fixings that we're normally accustomed. This was truly a learning experience with... More

We've been here a couple of times, the latest today for lunch. Cute place, nice staff, upbeat vibe. While the dishes do not remind us of those eaten in France, the real question is "is it good?". The answer is yes, but not exceptional and, given the price ($26/person for lunch with only water and tea to drink) does not... More
