Amazing bistro in Seattle

From the zinc bar to the wine selections and small plates. This place will make you feel special with its sophisticated, yet attentive service. I am definitely coming back when I am in Seattle next!

We received a recommendation from our waiter for lunch one day while touring the city and told it was a favorite of him and his wife. We were told that the Poulet was amazing and I couldn't agree more! Great service, adorable location, would definitely recommend and visit next time we are back in town.

Le Pichet has been one of my favorite lunch spots in Seattle for years. After having moved away 7 years ago, I was eager to see if it still delivers. It does! Their oeufs plat is delicious, and all of their pates are fine as well. Along with a green salad, you have a perfect light lunch. The room can... More

You will have good meals, you will have great meals, but it's life-changing when encounter that meal that you define as the BEST MEAL OF YOUR LIFE! Le Pichet in Seattle cooked up the a jaw-dropping dinner for me from their "specials" menu. I ordered the escargot for starters, followed by two pieces of sunburst squash stuffed with pork and...

Rather than having a separate breakfast menu, Le Pichet has an all day menu with some items that are more suitable for breakfast. We ordered the eggs, ham and cheese, a charcuterie platter, yoghurt and croissants. All were very good, although one of the egg plates was undercooked. This was replaced without any trouble. My only suggestion would be to... More

Arrived in Seattle very late and only restaurant open. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was very good. Wine list is all French, but still very nice.

Came in on a blustery evening with no reservation and were seated at the bar -- something we enjoy doing so it was no problem for us. We had a wonderful, cozy evening, observing other diners, chatting a bit with the bartender and others. Starting with cocktails and moving onto glasses of wine, we said to each other that we...

I had asked around for a recommendation for lunch at a great local spot (no chains, great food) and luckily as I was walking out of the Hotel Sorrento one of the valets told me to check out Le Pichet. I told him I was starving because I had just climbed Mt. Rainier the day before! So I took the... More

The more my wife and I travel and the older we get, we tend to see the sites but veer off the beaten path to find our meals. We like to relax and enjoy and not be waiting in lines and paying high prices for the "location", and frequently less quality. We dined here for breakfast two days in a... More

Having been in Paris only 3 weeks earlier, it was comforting to walk into this Seattle bistro and feel like I had been transported back. I was in town for work, and went here for brunch on Saturday morning. It's a small bistro, but I was able to get a seat at the zinc bar. I had great service from... More
