Sweet little French cafe close to Pike Place market

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

We love french food so this place came up as #1 in Seattle. Had to try. Service was great. Ambiance was ok. Beautiful restaurant but lacking music to set the mood. Could step it up to make the mood a little more intimate especially in the winter. Food: ordered onion soup which came out piping hot (always great for soup)... More

Convenient to the Pike Place Market but out of all the busy activity. Small but with such wonderful food. Good service. We went for brunch after walking for awhile. Great coffee. Pate. Next I'll go for the mimosa. Quiche melts in your mouth.

Walk through the door and you're no longer in Seattle. The tight spaces, the crowded little tables, the bar from which wine and other aperitifs are dispensed, the sights and smells--it's Paris. What a grand lunch we had. Plate after plate of various terrines and charcuterie, all of which were excellent but of particular note is the chicken liver pate... More

The moment I stepped in this restaurant I felt like I was in a brasserie in the middle of France. The staff greeted us very friendly. The food was amazing. The charcuterie plate was fantastic, the French onion soup delicious and the raclette as authentic as you can have it in Chamonie. I am looking forward to go back.

Le Pichet brings me as near to France as possible without leaving Seattle. Tables sit extremely close together by one wall and a long counter with stools provides additional seating in the small French-style cafe. Servers are attentive and professional, treating diners as diners rather than new (or old) friends. And the food ... ooo lala. The menu lists each... More

Dining at Le Pichet is like dining at a good bistro in Paris. From the tight spaced tables, excellent food and wine list, dinner here is Paris in the Northwest. Le Pichet is an old favorite, we have been several times over the years and happily I can report, it hasn't changed. As we were looking at the menu, an... More
