Enter Paris 66 and you will immediately feel transported to a French Bistro down to the last detail. This upscale, award-winning haven is not only a "family affair" – exclusively owned & operated with love by doting duo Frederic and Lori Rongier – but it is also that rare combination of worlds - intimate and inviting, yet appropriate for both special occasions & casual get-togethers. We bring a menu of everyday French culinary classics by offering up the perfect marriage of local/organic sensibilities with French influences & techniques. A superb wine list invites and ensures you to find the most perfect wine to pair with the delicious flavors created in the open kitchen. Sip our signature cocktail from the sidewalk terrace in the warmer months or enjoy our perennially popular heated patio in the rear. And of course, no visit is complete without a taste of one of the artistically masterful and masterfully artistic delectable creations of Master Pastry Chef David Piquard. Bon Appétit!

I visited Paris 66 for the first time with my wife. The atmosphere was classic French bistro- cozy, intimate, but with a buzz of happy eaters. I could see that a lot of people were regulars as they were greater by the friendly staff on a first name basis. Our waiter, from France with a thick Parisian accent, was helpful in guiding us through the menu. He recommended some dishes over others when we asked his opinion. When I inquired about a bottle of wine, he steered us to a bottle that was going to be added to the wine list the following week- it was a good choice that did not break the bank. The entire experience was fresh and delightful and we will be adding Paris 66 to our "approved" bucket list of restaurants. Magnifique.

We dine at Paris 66 three or four times a year and always find the food and ambiance to be excellent! The staff is very friendly, non-intrusive and generally excellent. On this Saturday evening visit he waitstaff was very busy but still managed to do admirable job. A visit to Paris 66 comes close to dining at an upscale Parisian bistro!

Really lovely birthday celebration meal here. The wait staff are super friendly and even though they will greet you and speak to you in French, they are more than happy to switch to English. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere quiet and elegant.

There were five of us at the table. We ordered 4 appetizers and 4 entrees. Of all of these, only the steak tartare was excellent. Everything else, save for the beef liver was either meh or fine. The liver was over cooked and inedible.

The service was friendly but very slow.

This was the first time having lunch there—and the food was disappointing. Usually dinners there are 5 stars!! We had a Niçoise salad hat had two large hunks of grilled tuna that were tasteless and unappealing. Was surprised. The foie gras was cold when it was brought to the table and the asparagus soup was unadorned and just so-so. As I say, I’d recommend Paris 66 for dinner any time. Not so much for lunch. Maybe this was a fluke.

We went to Paris 66 for a special occasion, and we will go back again for sure. Out third visit. We agree that in Pittsburgh it is the best French food. Practically the only real French, now that Pommier has closed. It is expensive; our meal included aperitifs for each of us, we split an appetizer, split a carafe of wine, each had premium entrees, and then dessert with dessert drinks. And two bottles of Badoit water (hard to find in Pittsburgh). All was excellent to outstanding. The French martini is really special. Great magret de canard, great rack of lamb. That was $198 plus tax and tip. Service was good, but not very French. The atmosphere is terrific with soft classic French music. There are tablecloths, covered with paper, and real napkins. The plates and tableware are fine, but not exceptional.

This used to be a nice spot, but it's become tired and overpriced. Had lunch (and noticed there were only 6 people in the restaurant) there and don't think there is anything particularly unique about the menu. Despite the fact the restaurant was empty, every single server was ignoring the tables, instead staying huddled near the kitchen without taking care of customers. Weird. Took forever to get the bill. I used to be a loyal fan, but now I'm going to switch to Casbah for a nice lunch. Same neighborhood, same price point, but just an overall better experience. (Plus, the $27 steak salad at Paris 66 is total rip-off; the $18 jumbo lump crab at Casbah is killer!)

I am strongly inclined to think we hit Paris 66 on a bad night. The server was very nice and good at moments, but so inattentive to our table that she surely sold less wine and food than she otherwise would have. The frog legs and the scallops were stunning. An effort at a classic gallette was disappointingly dry. My fish was superb in some ways, particularly the sauce, but when mixed with rice that was quite dry, it was again, less than pleasing. The desserts, the crepe in particular, were superb. Overall, I think the service was the most disappointing. Just took too long to get back to our table to provide service too many times and made the overall night not what we would expect from the price point, or really any price point. It was so good in other ways that we plan to return, but this was not a great first introduction.

The biggest issue I had was the food. I ordered coq au vin and while the sauce was very good - coq au vin it was not!!! It was cooked chicken with sauce poured over it not slow cooked in the sauce as it should be. This resulted in chicken that was VERY DRY!!! One bite and I sent back the plate a it was impossible to enjoy and hard to get down it was so dry. Also my potatoes were very underdone-raw in the middle. My BF had the lamb rack special - it was mediocre at best. Very thin cuts, and definitely over cooked. Especially for us, we wanted to order rare but were told no so he opted for med rare and it was definitely med well at least. No real flavor at all - we honestly make better at home☹️. Although our server was nice the timing of service was not good - by the time we got our entree wine pairings my BF had just about finished his meal. And the price...... OMG ..... his poorly cooked lamb was $50!!!! We don’t mind a big tab for a nice night out but this was NOT WORTH IT at all, totally ruined our late Vday date nite. As for the decor, we sat on the patio- it was outdated, uninteresting. Though they did have it heated very warmly.

Lovely meal on Valentine’s Weekend. I had the salmon stew, my husband had the duck, and we split La Raclette crepe to start. Crepe was delicious, but a mistake as a starter. If I did it again, I’d have a crepe and then just a salad, because as s GF diner it was a treat to be able to order crepes at all. Our entrees were delicious and our waitress brought me plain mini crepes in place of dinner rolls. We finished with divine macarons and I don’t dish out praise on that cookie lightly because my sister’s are the gold standard. A lovely meal all around, even if I almost needed a winch to hoist myself out of my chair at its conclusion. Would definitely return!

We dined for Valentine's Day and greatly enjoyed the whole experience. Our waiter, Renaud, was friendly and attentive. The menu had some great selections to choose from, but when I saw that Beef Wellington was on their special Valentine's Day menu, I had to try it. The beef was very tender and seasoned well, wrapped with a nice, flaky pastry. My boyfriend enjoyed the salmon stew, which came with a nice portion of fish in a rich, creamy broth. Both specials came with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and can't wait to dine again for a future special occasion.

We really enjoyed our dinner for Valentines Day. The restaurant is beautiful, you really feel like you are in a bistro in Paris. The service and food were outstanding! I was thrilled they had beef wellington on the special menu. It was delicious and you can’t find it very often. Thank you Paris 66 for the great evening.
