Seattle Weekly's Description

If you're taking it up a notch for lunch, miss the coziness of the pre-renovation Virginia Inn next door, or really can pronounce French dishes, Le Pichet is right up your alley. Intimate and sophisticated in a casual way, it's right out of Paris, though located at the nexus of the Market and the good end of Post Alley (Pink Door, White Horse). Devotees of this echt-French cafe insist that it is, dollar for dollar, the biggest restaurant bargain in Seattle. It's hard to argue with them. The wine list is a dream, and the whole meal costs about half what a similarly splendid one at most venues elsewhere would run.

    This French bistro possesses both a legendary roast chicken and an informal charm that makes you want to linger all afternoon with some charcuterie and cheese. [Eater 38 Member]

    This is the best and most authentic simple French food you'll ever get in Seattle and possibly the whole of the West Coast.
