We enjoyed the brunch and guitar/violin duo on a lazy Sunday morning. The food is erratic. Foie gras (on an earlier visit) was phenomenal. Other dishes can be hit or miss. Service is excellent.

Excellent.... after searching reviews and looking for a place to eat in Asbury Park, we decided on Pascal and Sabine. Wow! We were not disappointed. The place is decorated nicely and feels like an upscale restaurant. Innovative cocktails, good service, good food to match. We are in the restaurant business, and also dine in NYC all the time....did not find these prices high nor portions small, as other reviewers have complained about.
French Onion Soup, deliciously fresh beet salad, and bibb salad were all great. For entrees, the Coq au Vin was falling off the bone with a rich sauce....just wish there were more mashed, or the potatoes were on the side because they just disappeared into the heavily sauced dish. NY Strip Steak Frites was perfectly cooked to temperature, and the salmon dish was moist and delicious. For dessert... their claim to fame, the Pot De Crème, was incredibly rich and decadent...best shared due to the richness. Also the Blueberry Galette was light and flakey. The wine list was extensive with options at every price point. Overall this place was a hit with our party of 3...We will definitely be back.

Stopped here for brunch. We come to Asbury Park often. Plenty of parking (metered) in the area. We actually rode our bikes. Staff is friendly and attentive. Bloody Mary was excellent as was the coffee. I had eggs Benedict on a croissant and my wife had waffles. Excellent!! We sat outside which was great. Music playing. Nice area. Restaurant is clean and inviting. Definitely would go back and highly recommend to anyone. Making dinner reservations now.

This new thing in the past few years, the trend of 'SMALL PLATES" is getting out of hand... these small plates = small portions but often reflect regular entrée prices and Entrée prices are ridiculous these days in some places for small portions...restaurateurs are taking full advantage of this Small Plate phenomenon to make more money...
I get it, rents are high, good staff is pricy, quality food costs escalate... but please 'knowledgeable' food people and frequent quality diners do not want to be exploited, what happen to Value and Quality.... Sabine and Pascal is in a beautiful 'downtown' NYC like French brassiere setting, it is exceptional. Booths are terrific and comfortable, food is consistently good but the prices leave a bad taste in everyone mouth!
Happy Hours are an excellent value every place these days packed and fill up at odd hours , then after 7 pm during the week you can find a table . Weekends everywhere are a nightmare filling everyplace with those 'good time' Benny's, Clans of Arrogant Tribes and cheap Tourists... ...
We loved Sabine from the day it opened but please '3' yes, three scallops over veggie risotto for $32??? what is this about? Hanger Steak and Pomme Frites a deck of cards portion for $25, in the winter this staple entrée is better portioned , the summer brings meniscal 'SMALL PLATES/ BIG PRICES' mind set.... the COQ AU VIN at $24, a cute caldron of hen was well prepared.. but hardly worth that price? Trout Almandine at $30, not worth it for a sliver of Sea trout... not fresh River caught...the Maine Lobster Pappardelle at $38, was a few claw pieces in butter and a tiny essence of Lobster scary what it has all come down too. as far as the apps from $10 to $30 The 6 baked clams in pretzel butter, could have fooled me, a scant of bread crumbs, Foie Gras at $20 for an app was excellent accompanied with a mini broche. a value at best. Salads well dressed an fresh.
Dessert excel always. priced from $10 to 15. the Pot au Chocolate with salted caramel a clear winner! . as is their trio for sharing a taste of a few sweet treats.
'Novelty bar drinks' a great way to pile on profit, here its hit or miss... stick to classics like martini's or Manhattan type drinks avoid all 'quasi' mix sweet drinks with hardly any liquor... this is also another way that our local downtown bars and restaurants are squirrelling away dollars, sweet syrupy drinks without a hint of any real liqueur from $10 to 15 a drink... NYC its not.. even thought many of the clients are Manhattanizes.
The bus staff, are quick at clearing away unfinished dishes especially when other diners are still eating.... and had to be reminded twice to wait until everyone is done ... the wait staff can vary between excellent to blasé.
Asbury Park, be careful what you wished for, there are serious parking issues everywhere from the beach to Main St, your over priced restaurants are popping up in very corner to take care of summer's crowds, this will end the week after Labor Day, the over built expensive condo's reflect a 'Barracks by the Boardwalk" environment, all leads to what we can exploited and manipulated to take advantage of the great press you are currently enjoying. What will it all be like in 10 years? when the bloom is off the onion!

Ok... never again! I actually feel robbed. I just spent no joke $204. For my husband and myself... we were with a larger group so obviously we spent more due to others eating and drinking more but in my opinion it was not worth $679 for 8 people! The portions were tiny and i mean tiny. They were greasy... overcooked...raw... 2 of us sent back our meals and my fish was trout but looked like salmon. If you want a lot for your money dont go here you will not be happy. Way too expensive! My friend ordered scallops for $34 and there were 3 of them... 3! Total ripp off!
