Dinner at Le Pigeon is "always magnificent!" The best seat in the house is at the short end of the kitchen counter where you are entertained watching the three chefs in the open kitchen. They seamlessly synchronize their roles in creating each dish served. I...More

We have been going to Le pigeon for 10 years now. We've never had a meal that disappointed. The food is always good, the service is fantastic, and Gabriel Rucker's food can't be beat. While we are so glad for Gabriel Rucker's success, we miss...More

Went here for lunch. We shared a pate appetizer that was delicious. I ordered the chicken-fried trout. The flavors were fantastic, They also provide lettuce leaves to eat it as a wrap.

We shared the sweetbreads as an starter, the enjoyed the famous Le Pigeon Hamburger and the Beef Cheek Bourguignon. All the dishes were very good, but surprisingly the best was the butter lettuce salad that came with the burger.

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.
