My daughter and I were looking for a place within walking distance that would be casual, yet have good food and not too expensive. This place was success in all of those areas. I had the chicken which was very lightly fried and very delicious...More

I had a wonderful lobster salad with fresh green vegetables mixed in, it was excellent and just right for the day! Very attentive and knowledgeable staff too, and make you feel very welcome, and no rush.

If you are looking for a small, quiet delicious little French restaurant Pascalou is the place. I haven't had Sweetbreads in ages - decided their description was out of this world- and the entree did not disappoint. Dinner companions raved about their meals also. Don't...More

We were lucky enough to get a table perched on a small balcony overlooking the happy diners below. With no idea of what to expect--I am always suspect of NYC restaurants with French names, worrying if they're the real thing for accented fakes--I was delighted,...More

Cannot review the place per se: we set outdoors. The service was very attentive and the food was good quality and well prepared. Eclectic menu, not particularly French, affordable prices (lunch menu) for New York and upper class neighbrhood.

You gave an excellent review, thank you. The menu is a bit eclectic, but the chef is 100% French. Next time you are in the neighborhood, please try our dinner menu. Thank you again, Lottie

If you are visiting the Jewish Museum or the Cooper-Hewitt, Pascalou is an intimate French cafe with solid food and good service. We had the onion tart and a endive salad with chicken, all good. Tight quarters but not noisy.

We went it without reservation and this cozy, unassuming restaurant was filled to the brim. We were lucky to get a table for two. Service was average but the food was wholesome and very tasty. All in all a very satisfying experience.

There is no taste to the food we waited like 45 min for main dish. The chef is amatuer ! Not worth the money!

We dined as Pascalou with friends this week for a second time and it was even better than our last visit in December. The 3 course early menu is varied and incredibly cheap. Our group enjoyed mussels, dumplings, and Caesar salad as a first course....More

I do not think they have more than about 40 seats, but it would be definitely necessary to reserve in advance to see what they can accommodate. In the same block of Madison Avenue between 93 and 94 Streets are (listed by... More
