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

We expected to like this restaurant but after reading some disgruntled reviews I was not sure. What a delightful surprise! The space is not as small as some made it sound, just cozy and not at all crowded, well except for the couple who brought the baby carriage. We two were seated at a table flush against another table for... More

We knew the time needed for the dish so made reservations allowing time before we attended a show following the meal. We like the atmosphere, mushroom soup was excellent as was the cheese plate appetizer.

We were walking around Seattle with reservations elsewhere. We walked past and I knew from the front door this was the place we'd eat. the bartender was so kind and helpful. Cheese food wine bread atmosphere was my top 10 of all times....and I've eaten all over the world!

Great restaurant for the gluten intolerant. Wait staff and kitchen are educated. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed (or sick). Excellent food. Great service. If it is on the menu, and you have room after your dinner, order the Chocolat Mousse. It is amazing.
