I had the Hawaiian Albacore,I had the Hawaiian Albacore, and it was exactly what I wanted. The fish was seared to a medium rare, so it was smooth with a gentle bite. The deep-fried capers were a very nice addition since I love capers but have never had them slightly crunchy. The salad was evenly dressed and made the meal very fresh and light. I really enjoyed my dinner here!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experience forOutstanding experience for the food ( Albacore and duck breast) the beer (Nortinelli). Even the salads were excellent (beans salad and warm beets salad). The server was also attentive but not pushy. Great job!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Rapidly becoming one of my favorite spots. Amazing food, and really creative with flavors. Great service, awesome views, and good wine that is well priced. Was difficult to find the first time: it is buried in a corner at Pikes Place Market, but well worth the search!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a tourist trapAfter researching for a place to have dinner and a view, I took a chance and made reservations here. It turned out to not only meet, but exceed my expectations. Food was excellent. We had the sashimi special, green goddess salad, and pâté plate to start. My husband said it was his favorite pâté plate and I loved my salad! For mains, I had the scallops ( so good!) and he had the seafood bouillabaisse. The portions were large and we still made room for desert. A great spot for a date night in downtown Seattle.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMScallops were the best I haveScallops were the best I have ever had.

Loved the unusual appetizers and salads. Quite a treat.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gem in the market!Place Pigalle is tucked away in the market, with an outstanding view and great service. It's an intimate setting, and would be perfect for a special occasion. The food is delicious; you can tell that thought is put into its dishes. From our host to our waitress, service was excellent throughout our evening there. I highly recommend this restaurant.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great ambienceThis is a small, well hidden treasure tucked into the corner of Pike Place Market. Its 100+ year history and fantastic sound views are icing on the cake - the food is delicious, the space is cozy and vibrant, the food is without exception delicious.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always good here,Food is always good here, and the ambience is great too! It was a full restaurant when we dined so things took a while to get to the table, and the staff didn't come around quite enough, but they did the best they could for being so busy. Will definitely be back.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always stop by when weWe always stop by when we visit Seattle. The food is delicious and a great value. We would recommend Place Pigalle to anyone who wants a small, charming--not too fussy restaurant experience and great French food. The wine list was good and the martini's excellent. Our table overlooked the Sound and we could relax and watch the ferries go back and forth. Being located in Pike's Place Market is a plus. We wandered around the shops after lunch.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace Pigalle is one of myPlace Pigalle is one of my favorite Seattle spots. Always reliable and they treat me very well there.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a memorable meal here.I had a memorable meal here. There was a special vegetable soup and an entree of fresh halibut with a deliciously flavored orzo. Round off with an excellent white wine. Extraordinary! I've eaten here several times and they outdid themselves with this meal.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and fresh seafood--asExcellent and fresh seafood--as you would imagine. A very nice selection of appetizers and salads--ordered the oysters on a half-shell, steamed mussels and sauteed bitter greens to start--all very good but the greens were outstanding. Fresh and flavorful. For dinner, we had the halibut (fish of the day) and the braised rabbit. As noted about their seafood, the halibut was prepared impeccably. The braised rabbit leg was delicious but the accompanying saddle roulade with duck sausage was so so (tough, and not very flavorful--I can see why the duck sausage was added).
The chocolate pot de creme for dessert was worth the price of admission, though.
Great place overall, and they live up to their reputation. Would highly recommend4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of town guests impressedHad dinner with two out of town guests and they were delighted. They plan to return again with other friends when they have their next business meeting in Seattle. I've dined at Place Pigalle various times over the past twenty years. It's high on my favorites list.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Thirty year wonderI have known and dined at Place Pigalle off and on for over thirty years. They have remain a wonderful restaurant throughout those years. As a part of the original Pike Place Market, Place Pigalle offers the best of the Northwest. A must for tourist and locals alike. M4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMust visit!What a beautiful little restuarant! Hidden behind the fishmongers who throw the fish at the Pike Place Market. Food and service were outstanding! The view is not bad at all; we could see the Seattle Wheel and water view. A small place so make a reservation.
A wonderful date night place to go. Small groups too.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPike's Place Gem!The food and view were excellent. We started with the calamari appetizer. It was served in a mushroom cream sauce and was the most tender I have ever had. My entree was a stuffed cornish game hen with greens. It was yummy, yummy, yummy. I would definitely recommend Place Pigalle.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurants.One of my favorite restaurants. I've never been disappointed.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Sweet Night OutWhen a restaurant reaches a certain competency, and provided it has some unique aspect, the quality of the evening then becomes a matter between you and your companions. Place Pigalle is such a place. Mood, service, food, wine-list, view, ambiance all allowed for our party to thrive. I would recommend allowing time to enjoy the company, and Seattle in to the rhythm of the meal.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie gem tucked in Pike PlaceA gem tucked in Pike Place market with a view of the Sound and interesting and very tasty menu.

This is definitely a keeper.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were pleased to find thatWe were pleased to find that Place Pigalle is as special (more!) than we remembered from years ago. The meal was superb and it's tiny - just the sort of place we treasure. We won't wait so long next time.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants in Seattle and definitely a fave at the Market. Not everyone would think of Place Pigalle as a special occasion restaurant, but I love it's funky vibe and have celebrated many special occasions there.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding.The food was outstanding. My wife had the signature dish, mussels, and I had the French dip sandwich - the best I have ever eaten ANYWHERE. The background music left much to be desired. Some French cafe music would have been much more appropriate and certainly appreciated. Other than that, it was a good experience, and we shall return.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there. Bistro lowFirst time there. Bistro low key setting. I liked that the waitress asked if we wanted to wait for a window seat. It was lovely.

Food is terrific.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood has been very good, butFood has been very good, but not amazing, however the ambience, service and view make up for it.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable and romantic!My friend and I started the evening with the baked brie and a wine paired by our waiter, which wasn't our first choice but turned out to be a real winner. I had rabbit two ways and he had the lamb risotto also with a recommended wine for our entree. We ended with the most amazing creme brulee Ive ever had (very smooth and they didn't skimp on the vanilla bean). all of the food was wonderful the staff was great (even offered to hail a cab for us) and the restaurant its self felt like a romantic hole-in-the-wall find. it isn't cheap but is definitely worth every penny.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA quiet spot in Pike PlaceA quiet spot in the brouhaha of Pike Place Market. The four of us enjoyed our lunch immensely. Two of us had the bouillabaisse which was excellent. One person ordered crab cakes Pigalle which she liked. A fourth person had risotto (spinach?) which he felt was good, but a little "soupy". Desserts (creme brulee and pot de creme) were excellent. The service was attentive, but not hovering. I especially liked that the waiter spontaneously told us the price of the day's special without having to be asked.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
