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

Love this place. Tiny, intimate tables right next to each other just like in Paris. Excellent quiches. Great green salads. And why not have a pichet of good wine with lunch? Oh, and try the fries. Delicious.

My friend and I were wandering in search of a great local restaurant to celebrate our last night in Seattle and just happened to discover Le Pichet. What great luck! The food was amazing. I had the salmon and my friend the steak and both were absolutely fantastic! In addition, our server was friendly and knowledgeable about both the food... More

Had a late breakfast here on the hotel manager's recommendation and we couldn't have been more charmed. We had simply delicious eggs, ham and baguettes in a remarkably authentic setting - down to the stern French woman who runs the place. Would definitely go back next time I'm in Seattle
