I had high expectations after reading the reviews. My wife and I arrived at 9:15 pm and the restaurant that seats around 30 people was full but not packed. The bar next door had live music and the bass and drums shook the building and...More

Quite an unexpected pleasure. Food was creatively made and served quite. Properly. We tried the special dinner with 4-5 courses. It was a bit too much but very nice. Their wine selection was quite nice but a bit pricey. Still one if the best in...More

We started the evening with Happy Hour at Canard next door (same owner). Tasty and interesting cocktails and fresh oysters. We had an early dinner booked because I booked online at the last minute and so 5:30pm was the latest booking available. Dinner was fantastic!...More

What a lovely, small, intimate restaurant. We had the pigeon and the beef bourguignon along with the salad of butter lettuce, radishes with Roquefort dressing. My goodness was it delicious. I’m not a big fan of Roquefort dressing and I could have bathed in this...More

Small place, cozy atmosphere. We made a reservation online about a month prior and got a table on the earlier side. Food is great. Best chicken I’ve ever had. We also tried beef cheeks, which was very hearty. Highly recommend. Great wine list.

Went in with the family for a highly anticipated dinner at Le Pegeon. We all ordered the 5 course chef tasting meal - we couldn't have had better service - Chris was helpful, very knowledgeable and friendly - excellent communicator. We had the wine pairing...More

I have celiac disease and the chef was amazing. He was able to tailor any of the dishes to my needs when asked. The quail was amazing! Out of all my travels this place was in my top 10.

One cannot help but be surprised the first time you visit, as the space is definitely small. It becomes quite obvious why it can be difficult to often get a table and why many people walk in and hope to have a shot at eating...More

I thought the 7 course meal was just right (male, 5'11"). You'll have a better chance of filling yourself up (unless you just want to eat bread). I'm not sure about the corkage fee.

It is such a tiny restaurant, if you arrive early enough to be at the front of the line when they open the doors, you can occupy the whole family-style table, so there won't be many other people around making noise. If you... More
