I have had two great meals here while visiting Seattle for business in fall/early winter 2016. On both occasions I had relatively late meetings and found myself craving a comforting meal around 9p. The restaurant's location is great for most downtown hotels. I sat at the bar on both occasions and felt entirely comfortable dining solo there; the staff was... More

Like being in Lyon. Local market ingredients. Well crafted food. Cheese. Many wines by any size. I live in the area, and try to eat here often. Great food.

Our son suggested Le Pichet during our visit. This is one of his favorite restaurants in Seattle. Very nice selection of French dishes and wines. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Their service was outstanding. I would suggest a reservation as it was busy the entire time we were there.

We chanced upon this place to grab brunch before rest of the day. The place looks nice with typical ambience of a French cafe. I had CEufs plats , jambon et fromage - two eggs broiled with ham and Gruyere. This one is really delicious, I could have a second order! The eggs done just right. The ham just the... More

Very cute place with a great little menu. Low key and delicious. Perfect to go and sit by yourself with a good book

Dinner here is always a must when I travel to Seattle, it's like stepping into a Paris Bistro without leaving the continent. Order the Roast Chicken, it's for two, a great value and made to order.

always a delight, Le Pichet has a rotating seasonal menu of interesting and wonderful French food, an awesome charcuterie and cheese board, and wonderful wine. Drawbacks are that it has a small menu, so you can't really take a picky eater at all, and even sometimes there won't be anything on the menu that appeals to me particularly. And, in... More

Picture a French bistro in Paris and Le Pichet is it! I had a fabulous and authentic french onion soup, accompanied by an assortment of pates with a baguette. Vraiment extraordinaire!

Lucky to find this little gem in downtown Seattle. Looks, smells and tastes like a Parisienne bistro should. The pâtés, terrines, cold cuts and cheeses are a must. Follow up with one of the house specialties and you are set. Must visit again.

The day after our wine tour... one of our group members suggested Le Panier. Well my memory being as it is (horrible) thought it was Le Pichet. I can not tell you how happy my wife and I where to find this spot. During our week stay we went back three times. Our favorite was Œufs plats, jambon et fromage.... More
