Incredible food, comfortable atmosphere. If you want to experience some life-changing food—especially meat—eat here. Best charcuterie in Seattle. Excellent handmade cocktails. Can't recommend highly enough. This place has personality!

A cochon (pig) based theme for the restaurant including multiple skulls throughout. Alternative with very interesting food, loud music and very good service. The food generally are plays off of the pig theme including pork carpaccio and the home made charcuterie dish were both stand-outs. The drink menu is interesting and tasty. The wine selection was good. The main courses were all very interesting. Standouts included the scallops, pork chop and the fried egg was a must try. Overall, a very interesting restaurant for those interested in taking a pork flight of fancy...

Great dinner during my restaurant week. Rockfish was wonderful and their signature porkchop unforgettable. Ambiance is very nice as you’re up a floor so it feels like being in a treehouse.

Had their three course Restaurant week menu. Every dish was an explosion of flavor, with incredibly tender meat and well seasoned veggies. Great atmosphere and service, but smaller portions.

We dined here for Seattle Restaurant Week prior to seeing a show at the Paramount in Seattle and due to heavy rains and traffic arrived late. The staff could not have been more gracious in expediting a three course tasting in one hour that was absolutely delicious and so well-presented. The flavor combinations were remarkable! Our server, Hannah, was fantastic. This was our first time to Le Petit Cochon and we will now add this gem of a restaurant to our all time favorite Seattle restaurants. As my husband and I dine out every night, our return will be soon. Can't wait!

Food was well prepared but overdone and just a bit too weird. Declined the special offer of snail roe- really? And while my duck was well prepared- the dish was cluttered with way too many ingredients which detracted from the dish. Less is more. Lastly, peach begniets were delicious but the blue cheese ice cream overpowered the dish and just didn't work. Seem to be trying a bit too hard.

We had a great time. The service was amazing. The food was really good. The pork chops were phenomenal. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star is because some of the items we ordered were a bit too salty.

Derek and Kyle are creative chefs, using their training to produce food art. The ingredients are local, fresh and of high quality. They are proud of their sources for meats, poultry and fish.

In particular, a wonderfully delicate pate as a sample of their charcuterie was served by Kyle, and entrees were excellent (halibut, panacotte and fried chicken on waffle). Salad was a bit salty (prosciutto over greens), a pork slider was salty. Cute Pork belly on a stick were great.

All in all, Cochon is a young , energetic place serving gourmet food. The prices are moderate to high.

Recommended.

Derek continues to grown and impress with inspired dishes with each visit to Le Petit Cochon. This is a great place to go when you're willing to expect the unexpected, and let your palate be amazed by what he and his talented team have created for you. The staff are fun, courteous, and are the perfect pairing for an upscale, yet casual dining experience. I can't wait for my next visit!

While I enjoyed the food it wasn't go-out-of-the-way special. Upon sitting down, I was contemplating between the chef's tasting menu or ordering a la carte. I settled on a la carte. The menu is rather short, and while the food was tasty, I'm glad I didn't do the tasting menu.

Gastro-pub style food, thoughtfully prepared and nicely presented in a laid back atmosphere. We were surprised by a delicious amuse-bouche of leek soup topped with a tiny square of pork belly to get us started. Entrees are hefty. We split a LPC Pig Mac made with Olsen Farm ground pork, sliced smoked pork belly, salt cured foie, plum jam, onion rings, truffle aioli and arugula pistou. Be forewarned, it comes out medium rare. My wife wasn't crazy about that, (but hey, she ate the tartare!). It's all about the pork here and the Chef Derek Ronspies knows his way around a pig; from charcuterie to chicharron to double thick pork chops. We will be back.

We finally went (during restaurant week) and thought they did a good job overall. Portions are small but our server warned us upfront that if we were hungry we should order more. There's lots of fried fritter involved dishes & smokey delicious pork so we left feeling calorie dense vs volume dense. Worth a stop when interested in decadence!

We dined here during Seattle Restaurant week for my fiancé's birthday. We enjoyed every bite! We enjoyed each dish: the squash soup, beet salad (unlike any I've had before - the hint of horseradish was fantastic), the maple smoked bacon, the sea scallop, apple cider sorbet, and chocolate bite with burnt marshmallow ice-cream. The combinations were inventive and exceptional. The attention to contrasting textures was superb. I was, however, dismayed by the tiny portions. I drove 70 miles and arrived ravenous for our 7:30 dinner - by the time we left, my pallet was delighted, but I was far from satisfied. Having a hearty happy-hour elsewhere would be a good idea, or just expect to spend a considerable sum on your total meal.

We came for dinner at restaurant week after reading some good reviews, and ordered one of each item on the RW menu (except for the salad). Our server was great, and after ordering, they served us a complementary amuse bouche, followed by the 3 courses. All courses had an artistic and modernist presentation which we liked, and the food itself tasted fine. Our disappointment was in the portions themselves - it was a little shocking that their main course is also bite-sized, and this really pulled down our impression of the place. We expected that for $32, something a little more substantial should've been plated (i.e. they definitely took advantage of restaurant week, and portions weren't justified). I'm not sure what their portions are on a regular menu, but with the meal we had, I would only recommend it for people to come when they are not hungry, and literally just looking for a petite bite / taste of their menu.
