    Only the second time at this West Village pleasure. The menu is enticing and the food is the reward. Small and intimate without any cutesiness about it. Service could be a little more present, but if you don't want to see your sever after the meal is served ( and until the bill arrives), this place will be a pleasure. Make sure you enjoy this "just off Bleecker" hideaway in the winter. Very affordable on the food prices, still has the NYC stickers on the wine charges. Someday there will be a breakthrough with the European trend of reasonable prices on drinkable wines. Make sure you add this restaurant to your list on the the 'duo' part of the menu. You will be addicted to the skill of the Chef.

    I picked this restaurant for the reviews that said it was good, painfully the great food was spoiled but the way too loud live music, impossible to talk. Food was excellent, service was not good, waiters do not pay attention to the tables and took me several attempts to finally get the check. After being there for 90 minutes my head couldn't stand the noise anymore. It is a pity because the food was great.

    After shopping or just spending the day in the west village this resturant was perfect. The food is excellent, fish and seafood I would say is there specialty. All the fish is wild. No Farm Raised, which you don't find in many resturants The owner is usually ther and is a terrific host. Go there you won't be disappointed

    I discovered this restaurant early last week and liked it so much, I returned that very same week. The food is really excellent; high standards. And the price point is reasonable. The wine was also good. One night, there was a fabulous singer, "Red Sahara." The second visit, there wasn't music and that, too, was fine. It has a very easy going, friendly, comfortable atmosphere. I think that comes because it's owner operated. I don't know the owner and I am speaking totally as a restaurant goer who feels she has discovered a new favorite restaurant.

    Le Pescadeux, nestled in on Thompson St in SOHO is an intimate, warm, inviting French Quebec seafood themed restaurant that includes a cozy, friendly bar. Its made our trip from Connecticut to host our Hong Kong friend worth the journey. The service opened with fresh baked crusty rolls followed by a uniquely seasoned clam chowder, and a very tasty roasted calamari as appetizers. Our main courses included the house special BOUILLABAISSE QUEBECOISE, SEA URCHIN & ROCK SHRIMP RISOTTO and a lemon linguine dish with fresh fish (forget the actual name). We passed on dessert, a testament to the satisfying meal. Service was attentive and unobtrusive throughout. Chuck Perley, owner and host, turned an excellent meal into a most memorable evening!

    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 :)

    So happy that Chuck (the most charming and delightful restauranteur/maitre D ever) managed to continue his great legacy of Le Pescadou, a favorite of mine from yrs back with this gem of a restaurant. Lovely ambience, music (jazz), clientele (more local than tourist), with terrific fairly priced food. Between us we sampled a good amount of the menu and both seafood and meats were delicious and served with flair without preciousness. My only hope is that it doesnt get crowded out by the wrong kind of folk because it is that good...

    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.

    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.
