Wonderful Bistro!

The butter broiled cod served over a bed of squid, shellfish and vegetables was excellent, but honors went to the evening's inspired special of ratatouille on a chick pea pancake. Reserve ahead: we were lucky to get the last open table on a Sunday night.

We stopped here around noon based on the name and ambience and were delighted. Professional and pleasant service, with unique French inspired items. Clean yet authentically old restaurant. My husband opted for the (last) large piece of Quiche which was moist, yet fully cooked, and very tasty and light. His cup of black coffee was excellent. I opted for a... More

Excellent food and service in this charming french restaurant close to Pike's Market. My husband and I both had the salmon special of the day. It was delicious! We would definitely go here again.

Charming French Bistro in downtown Seattle! The simple decor and charming employees made this the highlight of our trip. The wine list was affordable and a good variety. We loved our appetizer of the Puree of salt cod served with grilled bread. I could have left after that! We ordered the specialty roasted chicken which was delicious. Moist and well... More

An absolutely charming place with a wonderful menu. Wish I had time to sample it all, alas we were only here for breakfast. Tried the eggs with ham and cheese, along with freshly made baguette and croissants, and drip coffee. Just perfect!

This place was highly recommended by one of the desk persons at our motel. We went for breakfast and it was suggest we try the dish that consist of ham, eggs, and cheese. We did and it was so good we went back the next morning. It's a charming little spot and the service was great.

Enjoyed Lovely eggs with Gruyere and ham with cappuccino in a quiet cafe. Baguette is like a taste of France. Close to Pike Market. Friendly service.

We were looking for a spot to relax and hang out while killing a few hours in Seattle. Le Pichet was perfect. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere and high quality French wine and food at reasonable prices. We had a plate of the homemade charcuterie served with fantastic French bread. My husband got the stewed beef cheeks and I had a... More

I tried out their dinner menu recently for my birthday dinner and it was delightful. This lovely French bistro restaurant serves up top notch French cuisine in a charming setting right next to Pike Place Market. It is on small time, so you will need reservations for dinner. The only problem is with so many great dishes it is hard... More
