We could have been in Paris for lunch with wine in pitchers (pichets) good bread, a variety charcuterie items at reasonable prices. The broiled egg dish--2 eggs, cheese and a slice of ham broiled, was was different and delicious. The quiche looked great. We are returning in a week for breakfast to sample it.

After almost a month of heavy breakfast options we were delighted to find a restaurant with light breakfasts available. Beautiful baked eggs over light bacon and a pot of tea was terrific. A great option for the traveller

This restaurant is both very reliable and very special. It is a bit of France here is the Northwest. Typical bistrot with great food and a regional French wine list. Reasonably priced for the quality.

Le Pichet is an unpretentious gem in a city full of trendy, high-priced food. We ate here before an 8:00pm concert at Benaroya Hall. We were advised to make our reservation for 5:30, and we didn't regret it. Despite the fact that the restaurant was completely full, the service was friendly and professional but very relaxed in a classic European... More

I ran across this authentic little gem. Beware--very pricey. Nothing too fancy, everything almost exact, and cozy ambiance. Rates a return visit.

Le Pichet is a little gem - every aspect of our experience was classic and simple - the restaurant space and décor, the food and wine selection. The menu items were very simple yet classic hearty country dishes that were well prepared. The wine list worked well with the menu and was reasonably priced. We greatly enjoyed the experience and...

A small slice of France in downtown Seattle. Great under the radar wine list. Classic recipes from the kitchen. Once you're inside, you'd never know you were in an American city. Cocktails, oysters (w/ a side of garlic sausage), and lamb sweetbreads all delicious and fairly priced.

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.

Thank Ann E
