Jim Drohman never missed a beat when he open this small place so many years ago. We go for breakfast and lunch when we are in Seattle. Great wine list that allows you to have a glass or more.

If you are a francophile then LE PICHET is the place to spend an afternoon or eat dinner. True French bistro attitude and style. You can drop in at the bar for an espresso or drink or stay for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The atmosphere, the servers, the bread and the quality of the food, it's like being in Paris!

This is a very small, intimate place. The food was excellent, good value for the price. A little laughable that the servers were just slightly on the snobby side, true to the stereotype-- although they were young and hip. I'm about 50/50 about going back there.

Small but efficient. Good service and good food, moderately priced. Can order off menu or order specials off Board. This is a busy place and we would return. Food is reasonable as well as the wine.

I've been going to Le Pichet since they opened. The quality of the food as well as the service remain very high. It has the look of a french bistro (which I believe is intentional) The wait staff is great, many of them have been there for years. The roast chicken (for 2) is fantastic. (It does take an hour)...

It feels like a true French Bistro. The décor, the size, the food, the staff all feel authentic. The chicken is amazing and worth the wait. It is quite hot inside in the summer.

Cute little piece of France in Seattle. We loved the house cheese plate and charcuterie plate. The service was very prompt for such a busy place.

Almost perfect as if we were on Rue Moffetard. The steak frites was done just right with a mushroom reduction on top of le-meat. The frites was good and crunch, twice fried. Had the chicken liver mousse to start, super creamy and rich, properly service with crunchy baguette and whole mustard. What really topped off my experience was the Kronenbourg... More
