Excellent Food at a Great BargainPascal opened this place, I think, to provide excellent food at a good price, during the recent hard economic times, and it is still THE BEST. Fixed price dinner with first course, entree, dessert for $20 and fixed price lunch even less, and the food is really good. The rest of the menu is reasonably priced and equally wonderful. They have wonderful soups - mine this time was non dairy carrot, and excellent - a good wine list, a large space and comfortable seating. Highly recommend it!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Newport Beach RestaurantService is great, and it's not too busy at lunch time. It's conveniently located on the outside of Fashion Island, 30 feet away from valet parking. 20 feet from handicapped parking (I had my 88 year old father with me). As with 99% of Newport Beach restaurants, it can be a little loud when it gets busy, but maybe I'm just old. Dad had the shrimp Louis, which I wish they would ask if you want cut, but they don't, and I ordered what I always get there - the fabulous trout. My only complaint about the trout is that it comes literally swimming in butter, so if you order it and don't want all the butter, be sure to request it. Great atmosphere, fabulous food, incredible service. A favorite of my entire adult family. I wouldn't take kids.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayMy mother and I ordered the fixed price menu. My mom ordered the french onion soup and when the server brought it, neglected to say how ultra hot, hot, hot it was. Needless to say my mom burnt her finger on the handle. She said it was very salty and was adding ice cubes to cool it off and dilute the broth. The salad is always lightly dressed and barely discernable so I always have to ask for more because it is wonderful when you can taste it. The salmon and filet mignon were both excellent and so was the chocolate mousse and creme caramel. Service could have been better especially when we arrived at 4 pm (place was empty) as to be able to attend a 6:30 Musical at the Arts Center. We waited a long time for desert to arrive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good French foodVery comfortable, large restaurant. Open relaxed feel, noisy, not intimate. They had a $19 3 course prix fixe dinner which was a great value, otherwise fairly pricey. Very good frites. Easy parking.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistencyWe love going there as the food and service is consistently great. We appreciate being seated at a quiet table as requested in the reservation. The hostess was very sweet when we thanked her for "our table".5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for the beerA brasserie originally referred to a restaurant associated with a brewery. Pascal has always offered an extensive array of wines and beers and, at last, now serves an excellent German non-alcoholic beer.

Very good for a meal before the theatre.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWhats not to like?My wife and I attended the recent Easter Brunch that offered and we were glad we did. The choices were many to the poimt that we had a tough time deciding but we did decide after speaking with our server.
This resturant never dissapoints, they always have great meal choices and deals. They recently started up with their Sunset Dinners again, with the best price going for a full meal.
We enjoy sitting at the bar which is full service for food, drinks are always changing with the seasons but if you have a favorite, they can make it any time during the year.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all loved the food andWe all loved the food and our waiter was outstanding, enthusiastic and helpful.

Good place to talk and enjoy a very similar experience
to a real brasserie in France.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Delicious Sunset DinnerWe went for the Sunset Dinner special at $13.00 for either Salmon or Filet Mignon. Has the Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection on a bed of gruyere potato gratin and nicely seasoned aspargus. Be careful ordering glass by the carafe as Pascal's carafe is only one and one-half glass however the cab, Shadow Ridge, was just as great as the meal. Can't beat the taste, the presentation and the price. Keep it going Pascal! Patricia3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good Brasserie is a specialA Good Brasserie is a special place.
