The charcuterie tray was very good. One of us had the onion soup which was also very good. The croissant was nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was missing something altho the hall to the restrooms is filled with fun French posters.

This place has a lot of potential and I believe most people really like it. However, I went there for breakfast and I made one simple request - no ham/bacon with my eggs. When they brought out my egg dish it was ensconced in a ham wrap. Hmmmmm. Of course they took it back and made me a new one.... More

Two of us visited Le Pichet in February 2014. The food was amazing and the service was stellar. I had a salad to start and the duck as an entree. My husband had the nightly special appetizer - short ribs - and the duck for his entree as well. A truly French experience in Seattle. That said, if you're looking... More

Sit at the zinc bar for a feeling of a Paris getaway without leaving town! Tried the Alton Brown feted Raclette. It was tasy but not "one of the best things I ever ate". next time I'll go for the roast chicken. Great spot!

We were fortunate enough to have Le Pichet recommended by a local we sat next to at Zig Zag Cafe during happy hour. She said it was one of her favorite places, so with no plans we decided to give it a try. The simple room was not crowded at all on a Wednesday night and we were greeted and... More

I adore Le Pichet. I've been there for special occasions, casual lunches with friends, and I've eaten by myself at the bar. The fare is rustic French. The food is always delicious and the staff are so friendly. I ask for a wine recommendation when I go - I haven't been disappointed yet.

We go to Le Pichet every time we are in Seattle. Exquisite, simple French food in a lively cafe atmosphere. The food is delicious, the wine list is wonderful, and their signature chocolate chaud is one of my favorite desserts ever. Warm, thick chocolate, not sweet, in one bowl. Whipped cream, not sweet, in another. So simple and delicious. It... More

I am going to become a proper little piglet if I stay in this town much longer and especially if I wander in the direction of Le Pichet. The ambiance, the style, the zinc as Dennis might say, it was all fabulous and everything done with such panache, I'll bet the French wished they had such an expressive language! Paradise... More

From the zinc counter to the amazing charcuterie, this gem was as good a spot as any in Paris. House-made everything, I had the delicate mousse de foie de volaille and a fantastic green salad. Coconut rice creme for dessert was perfect. Prices are reasonable, I wish I could try the breakfast too. Next trip! Great date spot.

Easily, the best dinner we had in Seattle this trip. My wife and I were lucky to get the last table open on a busy Saturday night. The quality of the food was only equaled by the wonderful and attentive service.
