The experience at Picholine starts with a subtle decor with a jazz soundtrack that is there but as background. The owners realize that people come here to actually talk to each other. The patrons respect this and govern themselves accordingly.

No one gets fat here but one does get some amazing taste experiences. Unless you are a supermodel you will have room left for the cheese wagon that comes with a superb explanation of what you are choosing.

I went on a business dinner and it worked. I will be back for more romantic reasons and am sure that my wife will love the place.

Picholine offers a superlative experience and amazing food for every palate.

The restaurant is a must-visit for anyone who loves exploratory, cutting edge cuisine. They have fabulous, almost avant garde dishes using many of the latest techniques from molecular gastronomy and deconstructive gastronomy. They pair unexpected flavors and textures with amazing success. If you see haute cuisine as art, you will find it an excellent museum with attentive, knowledgeable curators.

The restaurant is also a must-visit for those who love more traditional, impeccably cooked high end cuisine. They handle game and traditional meats with equal skill and delicacy. Everyone in your party will be utterly wowed by their meal.

We've been to Picholine several times and the experience was always superb. I'm wondering if some of the people who had a bad experience here went to a different restaurant! When walking in, you feel that you are entering the dining room of a private home. We were always served the most amazing food and the service was top-notch. If you want a restaurant that is elegantly beautiful with outstanding food and service, Picholine is not to be missed!

I took my wife here for her birthday and had a great time. The sommelier made some great suggestions and our waiter picked out my cheese to compliment my wine, he was very excited and the choices were great.
