A perfect French bistro for lunch near the Pike market. Everything looked tempting. My husband and I were very happy with our choices. Small and cozy.

I've moved to California almost seven years ago and I don't go back to France (I'm French) that often. So I'm always looking for a taste of French comfort food. That's right... when you are a foodie, you don't look for dishes full of foie...More

Cozy, rustic and very Parisian bistro offering classic fares ranging from charcuterie, pate, ham baguette, fresh made lentil soup and nice wine list (of course, French wines) to accompany ones choice. We had each of the dishes mentioned and all were tasty and authentic. Prices...More

Came here on a whim after the advice of a local and when we couldn't get in the pink door. Glad we did because the food was outstanding. Now it's not cheap but worth every penny. The place is extremely small and expect to "share"...More

Simple delicatessen pretending to be a French Restaurant. Yet another downtown Seattle restaurant with a mandatory 20% service charge. No ability to tip based on service.

Third time we’ve eaten in this restaurant , with two different sets of friends, twice for dinner and once for lunch. The friendly service and quality of food never disappoints. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Would recommend this to anyone.

Le Pichet serves fantastic French food without the fuss and pretense. The restaurant is small, intimate, I’d say. Try the half chicken dinner. It’s worth the one hour cooked-to-order wait.

I visited the restaurant a few days before dining and could see that some tables are more desirable than others. I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. Evidently that's a bit of a crap shoot as many other reviewers had unpleasant experiences. Our...More
