Diner Reviews
  • "Although not as unwelcoming as usual, had to ask for my beverage 3 times, water glasses had to be changed 2 x because of lipstick stains. We were sitting outside and 15 minutes after getting our menus needed to go inside to look for a waiter. (Only 3-4 other tables were occupied). 3 different service staff asked for our orders. good value and food, however there are many places with value and good food. We will think twice before going again."

  • "Waitstaff was fairly disinterested, not particularly attentive in asking if we needed anything. there were problems in paying the bill, as well.The food is quite good and doesn't deserve to He people who serve it."

  • "Arrived there at 11:30 for lunch. Only one server and he was busy helping in the kitchen and setting up. Rest of wait staff arrived about noon. Better to go at noon when they are better prepared. Duck wrap is excellent as are the salads. They also have a reasonably priced prix fixe lunch menu."

  • "I was introduced to Pascalou by a colleague, and I've now eaten lunch there twice. The food and atmosphere are excellent; the place is an obvious favorite with neighborhood residents. The cafe could easily find a place on Rue St. Germain in Paris."

  • "We booked a table for 10 ppl at 8 o'clock and had the upstairs to ourselves. A big group will be best at this cozy, cute restaurant outside of prime time. Everyone LOVED the food - and I'd say 2 of my brothers qualify as foodies - and the service was incredibly patient and professional with my offbeat and persnickety mother, who insisted on ordering after everyone got their appetizers so she cd see what the food was like... (For example). We had a delightful dinner - even mom was pleased."

  • "Reliable. Lovely prix-fixe lunch. A bit of Parisian "attitude" at times. Very crowded at lunch and dinner. Excellent duck confit . Usually pleasant experience. Tiny, cramped dining room at street level. Low ceiling small dining room up stairs."

  • "Pascalou had some great food options for a Sunday brunch. The service was fine, but the real issue came when I tried to use a restaurant.com coupon. I noted in my opentable reservation ahead of time that I would be using it, but then received an odd voicemail telling me that I could not combine it with the Prix Fixe Brunch options, since it was a "promotion" and the coupon said that it cannot be combined with a promotion. In my mind, Prix Fixe is not a promotion and I thought it was a little shady of them to try and pass it off as one. The table next to us encountered the same issues with coupon + promotion and eventually the mgmt agreed to apply it, but it will really make me think twice about eating there again. A little awkward to argue."

  • "I had hoped to discover a " neighborhood gem", but instead just found a place to eat. Nothing special, although not terrible. Our dinners were fair - I ordered veal "Milanese" which I was surprised to see came as a scaloppine cut instead of one big flattened chop. The sauce was tasty but the meat was was about 50% fat. My husband said his steak seemed like an inferior cut as well. On the positive side, the service was good and very quick."

  • "We were attending an event in the neighborhood and found Pascalou quite by accident on Open Table. What a wonderful surprise! The food was inventive and excellent. And the prices are most reasonable. This is clearly a neighborhood place with a strong local following. No wonder! Almost made us wish we lived closer to Carnegie Hill. Highly recommended!"

  • "The tall, skinny guy who seems to be the owner is not very nice to the customer. He doesn't like it when we take pictures in the restaurant. He seams to be discriminating Asian, especially when he chat with every table except us. Food was okay, the duck the only dish that we think is good and very true french dish."

  • "Cute little bistro--very small. A little noisy. Best table is by the window. Food was good. If you need to be near Mt. Sinai, this is a nice place to have lunch."

  • "Always a pleasure with very good food presented enticingly. The prix fixe is great,but the regular menu is delightful. Its only drawback is its size…tables are close together. However, I am a repeat diner and will continue to be."

  • "Pascalou is our go-to lunch destination whenever we visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is one of the few places within walking distance of the museum where you can have a reasonably priced three course lunch. The soups are excellent and change with the seasons. There's a choice of entrees and a couple of dessert choices. The ground floor room is small and tables are close so it tends to be noisy. There is another dining room on the second floor. Service is friendly and it is a popular place so reservations are recommended."

  • "I've lived in Carnegie Hill for over 20 years and have never encountered such rude service in our charming neighborhood. The food is very good but this is true every other restaurant on the stretch of Madison. "
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Pascalou is definitely a neighborhood gem, but its shine goes far beyond the 'hood. The food is prepared to a quality level that far surpasses the typical eatery. The short ribs are clearly slow-cooked and the fish is fresh and paired with fresh, not frozen vegetables. Add to this their great wine selection and you have a real jewel."

The service was very attentive but not overbearing, and our waiter made the whole experience really fun which just made my day. And of course great cappuccino ! Will be coming back for sure. :)"

  • "We thought we were going to a French bistro but you would not know that when viewing the menu. It seemed to have something from every region; Thai, Italian etc. the quality of the food was mediocre. The service was adequate but our server was brusque and not helpful about explains the menu selections."

  • "Small neighborhood place. Very good service and good prices for menu of the day. Plenty of variety, from salads to soup to more hearty fare for lunch. Staff clearly knew many of the guests and were accommodating. Small upstairs dining room but main floor was sunny and very pleasant. Short stroll 10 blocks from Mt Sinai Medical Center."
