    A unique menu and the freedom to customize the entrées (you can pick two 1/2 mains) puts Le Pescadux at the top of our small list repeatable restaurants in NYC. Dinning out must be for something you can't do. Sauces here were perfection! Fish entree's are excellent! The simplest desserts surpass other's fair. Great skill in their presentation. No, there isn't spectacular furnishings or spotless surroundings. There is truly great food, well presented and expertly served. We chose a quiet Sunday, after a play, and met with another discriminating friend. We all agreed that this is truly a standout, intimate restaurant. Do yourself a favor, make a reservation and take the A-C-E to Spring Street. You'll be a fan too

    Unfortunately we were not prepared for listening to live music, we were looking for a quiet place to relax and chat. We were surprised but it does not mean we are judging adversely, only that it was not what we were looking for that moment. We did not stay but maybe another time we can come back when we were in the mood for live music.

    We were looking for a place to dine with old friends we hadn't seen in years, where there was a choice of fish dishes, in lower Manhattan. I found Le Pescadeux in Zagats and it was a bullseye for the occasion. With tables open to the street it had the feel of a French Bistro, and while small, had a warm & cozy feel. Service was friendly and attentive, and most importantly, we were allowed to linger and catch up with our friends. My wife and I had the Soft Shell Crabs, while our friends had the Salmon and the Dorado...as these were the first crabs for us of the year, we were very excited, and they did not disappoint. Our friends also enjoyed their dishes. The tuna avocado appetizer and the octopus salad were also great. We shall be back!

    Having been born in Quebec, I was hoping to find remnants of Quebecois culture in this restaurant, even at brunch. What I found was a nearly empty restaurant serving ho hum food. The service was polite and acceptable but I had no sense of having a French Canadian experience. If felt my food was average while my wife's was below average in her view. The one redeeming element of the brunch was an excellent bloody mary prepared by who I think was the owner. I love a spicy Bloody and she delivered.

    One of my guests pronounced his dinner "the best meal I've had in 15 years." The other planned to return within days with his wife. Both have sophisticated palates and aren't the exaggerating type. Come here if you love a restaurant that's low on pretension and high on culinary excellence. Super-fresh fish and seafood, wonderful flexibility in ordering (the "fish duet" entree is an idea of pure genius) and a friendly, fun vibe. The roasted calamari appetizer was transporting. The snapper ceviche starter sparkled in your mouth. The dorado entree was juicy. I can't wait to go back.

    I live in the neighborhood and every time I walk by I think it looks like a very pleasant spot. I also love seafood, so I went there for the first time last week. The doors to the street are completely open giving an indoor/outdoor dining experience; great in the summer. Because Thompson is a quiet street, our dinner was really great. We were surprised that they had live music on a Monday night and the group was great. Not too loud but wonderfully chosen background music. Every item we ordered was excellent and beautifully presented. Overall, our experience was a very pleasant one. I am looking forward to eating there again.

    This restaurant has a unique menu feature. You can order two half portions. Since I couldn't choose between salmon and cod, I had half portions of each. Both were excellent. The crabcake appetizer was superb, akmost all crabmeat with very little filler. Only complaint is that service was not great towards the end of the meal when the restaurant got crowded.

    This hip Thompson Street bistro is always a great experience! Quebec theme is fun, and owner Chuck is usually there (when's the last time you saw an owner at the restaurant!!) And he's a total character, too! Great food - fish duets a treat, but love the duck, and the steak, too. Cajun Rock Shrimp is to die for. Crab cakes are terrific. Service is great. Everybody is friendly. Very hip crowd. Love it!!

    I tried the crab cakes, pork belly, fries and sugar pie. The crab cakes were excellent with a nice sauce and cucumber accompaniments. The pork belly had a lot of fat and no flavor. Even after cutting off the huge layer of fat the meat left was flavorless. The fries actually tastes bad - how do you mess up fries?!? The sugar pie was flavorful and something new. The service was good; quick and kind although I was disappointed that they did not ask why I didn't eat any of the fries. The ambience did remind me of a small bistro in Paris without all the smoke :)

    As always it was a wonderful meal. The fish is very fresh as are all the menu items. We bring friends here when we can, as we did the other night, they really enjoy it as well. Live (local) musicians play a few nights during the week. It's not loud, it's enjoyable. Make a reservation.

    Early Bird special a big draw especially because it included a glass of wine. However, we had to request the early-bird menu as the waitress did not immediately give it to us. We appreciated being able to sit for hours even though the restaurant got crowded. Also very nice to have the owner come over and chat.

    we had a fabulous time dining at Le Pescadeaux the other night. The food was wonderful, the service was attentive. But beyond that, the atmosphere was warm and friendly, like being welcomed into a home of a close friend. The owner personally welcomes all his guests and makes the rounds to all the tables. He sings Happy Birthday to those celebrating and personally delivers their dessert! There is a lovely jazz band with wonderful music. This is a rare treat and a wonderful find. Book a reservation, NOW!

    Spouse and I saw this resto on GoogleMaps as being near Four Points hotel, where we were staying. Open Table reservation worked well, and then, when our evening plans changed, resto graciously changed our reservation to an earlier time, and gave us a really nice, large table. Food was wonderful: whole dorado for me, squid linguini with seafood for spouse. We split the roasted cauliflower side. Appropriately sized, filling portions. Perfectly cooked fish. We have eaten in some of the most well-known and pricey seafood restos in Manhattan. This was a nicer experience than those 'five-star' places with celebrity chefs.

    I had dinner on Friday with 3 friends and I can highly recommend this restaurant. The owner / manager was very friendly and a charming man and clearly very enthusiastic about his restaurant. The food was superb - I had Dorado fish which was exquisite and all my friends said their food was excellent too (ranging from meat to fish). The ambience is lovely too and service is attentive but not over bearing, you were made to feel that you could have a relaxing evening without being overtly disturbed. This is a really lovely local SoHo restaurant and a real gem. It's not overtly flash, it's a perfect neighborhood restaurant that combines great food, atmosphere and service to provide a really memorable evening. I will definitely be coming back.

    Given all the great reviews, I expected to find a little neighborhood gem. What I found was little and neighborhoody, but I don't think I could certify the 'gem' part of that. It's not that it was bad; it was simply unremarkable. When we arrived around 7:30, almost no one was there, but within 30-45 minutes, the crowd picked up and the room was close to full, giving it some better energy as the night went on. The wait staff was attentive and friendly and never made us feel rushed in any way (a peeve of mine about NY dining.) The food...meh. The Bouillabaisse was probably the best item we ordered. The fish duet not so much (sadly). Tuna was flavorless; salmon better. So it was just ok...and you can get 'just ok' in lots of places.

    Perfect spot for our night out with friends. Our group of 6 enjoyed fresh oysters, crab cakes and calamari to start then dove into delectible main courses. Top billing goes to the house special (scallops) and to the paired fish dishes (tuna and salmon were partiular favorites), but the steak frites were also a hit for the land lubber in the group. Delicious desert shares and after dinner drinks followed to cap off the night. The fabulous food was matched by the casual but sophisticated ambiance. The lighting is perfect and the decor (especially the paintings) strike the perfect downtown vibe. The owner, Chuck, makes everyone feel like an honored guest. We will be back - for either a casual night out downtown or for a special occasion.

    We had come to the restaurant after being here for dinner several months ago. At that time we had some wonderful fish, especially the calamari. This time the service was mediocre at best. While the restaurant is very cute and seems like a good neighborhood place,many of the offerings on the menu were not available. The banana bread was really nothing special. The breakfast of eggs with meat or fish also just missed. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    After being tremendously impressed by this place on our first visit, we were disappointed by a return for brunch last Sunday. The menu was far more limited than the dinner offerings, and several of the things we most wanted -- calamari and crab cakes especially -- were not available. The room was too cold for comfort, and we ended up eating with coats around our shoulders. Service was indifferent at best (unlike our first experience there), and the jazz combo was so loud that conversation was difficult. I'll probably give the place one last try -- definitely at dinner -- but at this point I'm skeptical.

    What started off badly but ended well. We arrived on time for our 8 p, reservation for 6 persons. Unfortunately, the table did not. It was about 40 minutes before we were seated. The management was appropriately apologetic, offered us seats at the bar and half-priced drinks. However, it was not very comfortable. when we were finally seated the table was a bit small and hard to get to the seats. However, everything turned better when we started ordering and eating. The food was outstanding with a very interesting menu. I had an appetizer of roasted squid in a sauce that included the ink, and it was delicious. Others claimed the same about their food. Overall, I would return and recommend it, but I took off a rating point for the long wait.
