Two of us visited Le Pichet in February 2014. The food was amazing and the service was stellar. I had a salad to start and the duck as an entree. My husband had the nightly special appetizer - short ribs - and the duck for his entree as well. A truly French experience in Seattle. That said, if you're looking for quiet or intimate, you won't find it here. This is bistro dining - close quarters, loud, happy conversation and delicious food.
