  • "Wonderful menu and never disappointing. The service and the ambiance, particularly upstairs, is outstanding. The food is always fresh and beautifully presented. The prix fixe lunch and early bird dinner menus are very reasonable and have a large and varied menu. Their pomegranate martinis are exceptional and a wonderful summer cocktail."

  • "I had lunch with two friends prior to going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We do this three or four times a year. The restaurant was unusually empty and quiet, probably because many of its regular patrons are in the Hamptons for the summer. It is far enough from the museum that not too many tourists go there. Two of us had the red bean soup with shrimp and one had the salad with goat cheese. All were equally delicious. We all had skate wing for our entree. We often order this because it is delicious and it is not usually found on other restaurant menus. We all had the chocolate mousse for dessert, which was rich and velvety. We had wine with our meal. The service was excellent and friendly. The cost was very reasonable, too."

  • "My boyfriend and I found this place quite by accident and have been going back time and time again, conisidering it "our place". That is how it is, just a comfortable place, a bit romantic, feels like Paris!! Never had a bad meal here."

  • "ALways can count on it being delightful and nutritious with good service and well located."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "We were delighted with the food--soft shell crab, skate, risotto were all outstanding. The portions were abundant…at least two "doggie bags" went home for lunch the next day. The service was excellent; the owner very attentive. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "This is our kitchen away from home, except the cook is better. Healthy, varied and delicious!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "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."

    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "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."
