  • Superb SoHo Restaurant

    Dined on 4/4/2014
    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.

  • Just Ok is Not Good Enough

    Dined on 3/27/2014
    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 3/16/2014
    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.

    Dined on 3/16/2014
    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.

    The waiter was good but he needed help. He was tending the room with a few servers. The host is gregarious and fun. The fresh oysters were great. For the main courses: one order of tuna was cold, both orders of cod were slightly mushy, one order of the bass was overcooked and mushy. The salmon and octopus were excellent. Desserts were average. The caramel bananas were too sugary, the syllabus was sweet and not noteworthy excerpt for the champagne gelee. The coffee tasted old. At $110 per person with a bottle of wine and tip, not worth it.

    My friend and I were having a great NY Day with plays, shopping, wandering around. We knew we were going to end up in Soho for dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed Les Pescadeux. Service was warm and welcoming, we arrived at 5:30 as they were opening for dinner and when we left at 7:30 they were almost all filled. We will definitely be back!

    Pescadeux is a gem. Outstanding food. I had octopus salad (sensational convergence of flavors and textures), followed by bouillabaisse (as good as I have ever had). Wife had Clam Chowder which was perfect starter on very cold night and Tuna Au Poivre which she loved. Side of Brussels Sprouts were delicious We will be back..

    This was an excellent restaurant. We both enjoyed everything we ordered. The menu had many choices (including non-fish selections) but is really for people who like fish and seafood. I especially liked the Fish Duets selections. It was a great way to try several different dishes in one meal. Also the owner came to our table and spoke with us. We felt like regulars and it was our first visit but definitely not our last!!!!

    I proposed to my fiancee at this restaurant. I asked to do a special surprise table setting, and the owner, Chuck, enthusiastically allowed me to bring my own flowers and candlestick holders to the restaurant. When I got there in the afternoon to bring the table setting, a waiter, Steve, took the items from me. When I arrived later on with my soon-to-be fiancee, Chuck and Steve did a great job maintaining the surprise. Everything went well, and Chuck brought out complimentary champagne. We both loved the live music. It turned out to be the perfect place for getting engaged, and we both plan to go back to Le Pescadeux!

    Warm, friendly, not your usual "decorator" motif...more of an eclectic seafaring atmosphere. Outstanding, creative delicious food served by a friendly wait staff...John Luka...fabulous, attentive, prompt in answering concerns. The host Chuckie....fantastic singing voice...as he song H.B. to me! We were seated at the "Captains Table" which is on a slight platform so we had a birdseye view of the patrons all around us. Very friendly couple seated next to our table have been going to L.P. since its previous location.. I can see why. Can't wait for the summer when they open the front windows to the neighborhood! We will absolutely go back!

    Found Le Pescadeux by location and reviews from Open Table users...Thank you! Starting with the friendly smile at the door, all the way through espresso. The menu has something for everyone, the three of us all had the "duet" we were able to pick two of the fish/seafood items...all 6 were great. We shared, and I do recommend, the brussels sprouts with apples and bacon. Nice selection of wines completed the experience. We are looking forward to returning soon.

    Recently I had important friends pay a visit to NYC. They are sophisticated diners and definitely know a good seafood restaurant from a run-of-the-mill one. They were extremely impressed with every facet of their dining experience at Le Pescadeux, from the excellent service to the quality menu. The wine list is varied to fit any palate, the special "duet" menu allows for diners to have two different seafood selections (a novel and winning concept), and to top it all off, the owner was very gracious and displayed a delightful wit. Oh, and the flourless chocolate cake was the best I've ever had. Thanks to Le Pescadeux, I scored major points with my friends! Le Pescadeux is now on their short list of best NYC restaurants.

    What a lovely neighbourhood restaurant. For some reason it was not packed the Sunday night I was there, but competing with Golden Globe and a neighbourhood restaurant having its closing party, it made more sense. The staff is very cute, helpful and attentive. The music played was perfect and the seafood platter I ordered was delicious, especially the tuna tartar.

    I love this place and went there multiple times during the last year. I've never been disappointed and the food is great. Depending on when you come, you can enjoy listening live jazz music played on a small scene close to the bar.

DId not have specials this evening, as we did on our first visit here. Nonetheless, the food is top-notch, really fresh, and they don't hurry through a meal, which is wonderful. And the owner always makes a point of saying hello...a real gem.

    The host is quite friendly and entertaining. The menu is great and unique in its focus on the French influence on regional North American cuisine from Quebec to Louisiana Cajun fare. Great selection of fish and a fantastic Steak Au Poivre for the carnivores. The service good be a bit tighter but truly a great little restaurant that is food driven, not trend driven.

    Le Pescadeux is a small quaint space. The food at Le Pescadeux is neighborhood comfort food. Nothing fancy but good. I did really enjoy the brisket with sweet potatoes two ways. However, their poutine wasn't one of my favorites. There was only one waiter but he was able to keep up and attend to us. Overall good. But look out for Chuck, the owner, who after he's got a good buzz goin', goes from table to table chatting.
