The best French fusion food outside France outside of France. The menu is very small but therefore delicious and the tastes were very well matched. Compliments to the cheff.

The wine selection was decent and our party of three selected well for our individual tastes. The rose chosen was really very good! That said, the food was a bit of a disappointment. Two of our party opted for the pesto gnocchi from the dinner...More

Stopped in for a light dinner and enjoyed our cheese board and glasses of wine. We also shared the grilled cheese appetizer, which was tasty but nothing special. Our server was very helpful with suggestions and explanations.

I am so grateful for this sandwich shop. They offer a variety of artisanal cheeses and meats. The Medi Tuna is my favorite. They also are one of the only places to have Kosher wine year round. The woman pulls from the basement bottles for...More

I have been to Bar Pastoral many times--with my spouse, with friends, and with family groups--and each experience has been utterly delightful. The ambience is lovely, the setting intimate, and the food delectable. The selection of artisanal cheese and fine wine is wonderful, and the...More

Four friends who haven't been together for months. A great server (Carolyn?) and the table in the front window. A recipe for fun. We were thrilled to sneak into Pastoral for a pre-theatre meal. We made a reservation. Traffic stalled us, but they honored it...More

Enjoyed our brunch here on a late Saturday morning. Unique menu, not your run of the mill eggs and sausage. My wife ordered the Leek Mac & Cheese and it was fantastic. My eggs and candied bacon were good as well. Not the best brunch...More
