For some classic, French favourites, give Le Pichet a try. The food is great and the staff attentive. It was a great, relaxing night out. A must do!

I had dinner at Le Pichet with my wife and daughter. We loved it. It's warm and friendly with a true French feel. The food was delicious, from the hors d' oeuvres to the deserts, and our server paired our meal with a wonderful wine. I liked everything about this place and I look forward to dining there again.

A friend took me there for lunch and it was such a find. The place in small and seating is limited so expect a little wait if going there during peak hours. Once seated, the service is fast. My friend and I shared a delicious, homemade charcuterie platter and I ordered a salad. At first, I'd thought there was no... More

Wonderful breakfast. Oeuf poele a la creme de munster, aux champignons de bois et aux salsifis.( missing many diacritical marks) This was excellent. I also dropped in late one night and the chocolate and cream. Hot chocolate pudding with whipped cream. I wanted to shout, OMG, but kept my composure. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It is really nice place with good French cousine( South France) It means that everything will be very fat and if you are not familiar with this type of food you will be probably very disappointed. I prefer more northern style. So it is not my place to eat :)

Had a wonderful dinner here last week. Great baguettes, excellent charcuterie and big salads. Very like the little cafes and bistros we love in Paris! Happily recommend this place for casual dining in the French manner!

Always our go to place when we need a night out for two. It's warm and cozy with a delightful menu. All is excellent but you MUST have the chicken, you won't regret. Call ahead, it's tiny so they fill up quickly. We love the booth by the front window.

His is a small restaurant serving very fine French-ish food. We had two kinds of oysters, a cheese selection, and their roasted chicken speciality. The chicken is to die for. The service is without fault and the wine list isreasonable. Romantic, yummie, and I can' t wait to eat there again next time I am in Seattle

After arriving in Seattle for the first time, check into hotel, taking a stroll, after a long drive, into the heart of the city, we passed "Le Pichet" felt the right vibe, walked in and ate "comme les Francais". Nice classic Bistrot atmosphere, yet not too cluttered, competent and friendly service. The food was excellent, the' chicken liver terrine' like... More
