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.

The food and ambiance are authentic French. Try the pate, the ham, le soup du jour with amazing baguette and the oysters. A pity nobody in this place speaks French. Oh and they should really serve Perrier , not San Pellegrino.

Have followed Tom Drouhman since he was at Campagne. A real talent who has been able to maintain quality and service for so many years. If you cannot get to France you can at least imagine that you are there!

Le Pichet reminds me of bistros I visited in Paris. Small, intimate, delicious food. House salad is generous in portion with a delicious vinaigrette and the addition of hazelnuts makes for crunch. Quiche of the day, combined with the salad was a hearty lunch. Dessert...More

We had a great dinner at this bistro. The service was wonderful and the food fantastic. Gluten free options were limited and disappointing but overall a great experience.

This French bistro has some of the best and most consistent food in Seattle. It is undoubtedly your best option near the overcrowded and tourist laden market, which has lost its luster in the past decade. Crowded with local gourmands in the know, Le Pichet...More
