The onion soup and the charcuterie were amazing! We had to wait outside for half an hour for a table, but it was worth it. Inside there is this ambiance where you feel like you're in a French city. People eating at the bar, good wine and good food! Happiness!

Le Pichet is a great spot near Pike Place Market for a true taste of France, day or night. This authentic French-style bar/cafe is open every day from 8 a.m. to midnight, serving an extensive menu, including breakfast and charcuterie items all day. The oeufs plats with jambon et fromage is the perfect way to start the day - at... More

Charming small French Bistro, the staff was great, the deco really felt like Paris. The food was perfect and just right not too much nor too little. Perfect Baguettes that just kept coming. It was hard to leave we were enjoying ourselves so much. Please go if you can you will not regret it. We ordered the Saucissons Séchés A... More

I had another birthday dinner at Le Pichet and as usual it was wonderful. The food is fantastic and priced very reasonably considering the quality. I had rock fish which was excellent. We enjoyed a bottle of Cab Franc from Chinon/France, also excellent. The Chocolat Chaud (hot chocolate) is incredible. Make a reservation if you're going on a weekend evening.

My kids and I had breakfast at Le Pichet on a recent trip to Seattle. We live in Portland and had taken the train so we were a little concerned that our breakfast might cut short. As it was, Le Pichet fit the bill perfectly. The service was, well quite French. Staff was paradoxically, disinterested but attentive. I had the... More

This French bistro restaurant is authentic. Over the years, my husband and I have eaten here many times. The food is great! It is also good value compared to other downtown restaurants. Sit back and relax and feel the atmosphere of Paris.

This small, unairconditioned French restaurant is well known to "foodies" as it has gotten press in national magazines. The service is superb and the food is delicious. It was hot in August even after 8pm, and we were given an outdoor table, which was cooler than inside. Surprisingly affordable wine selection.

I had salad to go just now. The servers were observed to be nonchalant; and they were chit chatting among themselves. I guess it is a "french" way of life... They were taking their own sweet time to attend to me. I asked for salad and the waiter asked which type. He handed me the menu without bother to explain... More

A great little place to immerse yourself in French ambiance. This is a delightful little French bistro with an authentic Parisian feel to it. My wife and I sat at the bar for lunch and it was so much fun. I had and ham and cheese baguette with frites and my wife had the featured quiche of the day; both... More
