Christina, our server, was very polite and helped us with menu selections as we were unfamiliar with Paris66 food items. The food was amazing. Definatrly have to try the escargot! Creme brûlée and chocolate mousse were so rich and thick that it was hard to say no to. We got 1/2 mixed macaroons to go home with. Again, Christina picked out house favorites and again, she didn't go wrong. If you want a place with character and great food, you must try Paris66. Ask for Christina!!

Food is always delicious and we enjoy a more relaxed dining experience. They have a note posted in the entry about staffing shortages and are working to train more people now. This set the expectation that restaurant is adapting to the realities of business in the current climate.

Everyone was friendly the minute we walked in the door. Our waitress, Riley was efficient and friendly.
The food was definitely above average and devoured by the whole table.

This was just such a huge let down. Honestly would not go again. There were 3 of us, we sat on the other side of the kitchen, and between the noise there and the music, it was a bit annoying having to speak above all of it so our friend sitting across the table could hear us.

As an appetizer, we ordered the goose liver. 1) a dish at $27 dollars meant for 2 people. We ended up having to ask for more of the tasted bread. The goose liver was tasteless. Not worth the $$$.

Between the three of we, we ordered the trout, the duck, and the filet. Every bit was just sub-par. Side dishes were separate. My friend who ordered the duck mentioned he’d had better duck elsewhere on several occasions. The sauce of the filet was okay, but not sure a best accompaniment to the filet. Trout was decent. We also got pear tarts as a dessert. Nice that you get two small individual tarts, good to split. Aside from the bottle of wine we also purchased, the tarts were the next best.

Would not go again. Would not recommend. I left full but certainly not satisfied. There are a lot of better tasting places in the city that are much more with the price.

The steak and sauces were excellent. Duck was crispy but a bit dry. Salads generous. Service was attentive. Deserts were good- a lot of surface for the creme brûlée, pear tart had an interesting almond note. However, the entrees are plated without any sides, and so the overall experience was lessened due to not so great value.

Extremely disappointing for a mid tier restaurant, disaster for higher end restaurant,

Had to ask for silverware napkins twice, even after bread and soup was delivered. A steak was ordered and they didn't ask preference on doneness, duck was good, but obviously overdone and dry (how do you get a dry duck?!).

The worst though was a member of our party had a shellfish allergy and expected just to have a soup or salad but was told flat out by the waitress they can't say ANYTHING would not be cross contaminated. So she had a few macron while the rest of us ate. (I offered to go elsewhere but she declined as we had wine already).

Very disappointing.


Positives: Good wine and cocktails

Our first dinner out since the pandemic. We planned for an early weekday dinner to avoid too many other diners. It was perfect. Only one other couple on the patio. Felt very safe there. Our server was awesome! She took care of our every need but was not hovering over us. Food was delicious as always. So glad we chose Paris 66 to celebrate our 43 anniversary.

Great to get back to the restaurant again. As usual, the ambiance was nice and the food solid as usual. Server was less than engaging and almost rude - didn’t feel welcome at all. Only irritant was that the server recommended the crêpe Suzette for dessert which we ordered – only told that because they were busy they were able to make it for us so left without dessert...

What a wonderful and surprising experience to step into Paris 66 and get a taste of France in the middle of Pittsburgh. The service was excellent. The croissants took me back to Paris. The crepes were authentic. The cappuccino was perfectly prepared. I enjoyed my omelet. If you are missing international travel OR you wonder what it would be like to dine in Paris, Please visit Paris 66. You won't be disappointed!!

It took like 90 mins to receive the food we ordered despite that we were told 3x that the food would be out shortly. There was no explanation but an apology. None of it helped the date. I doubt I will go back.

Bonjour Henry, Thank you for taking the time to write. We were understaff last Saturday evening and I explained to every guest that the wait will be very long, unfortunately. I am not trying to make an excuse but this will not happen again. I hope you can give us another chance. Merci et a bientot! Frederic Rongier, Proprietor.

We wanted to try this after seeing its charming vibe. The owner is hands-on cooking and running the restaurant, and a very friendly gentilhomme. The problem is, service was pretty bad and uncoordinated the Saturday night we went. Long wait times between server attention, wrong food delivered twice. Dessert menu laid out, but it was 15 minutes (at least) before the server returned -- our minds had changed. Our intended meals (trout and mussels) were just so-so. Sauces and treatments were nothing to write home about. This is forgiveable in a "$$" restaurant, but NOT in a "$$$$" restaurant.

Foie gras torchon was good. Trout was well prepared, and a generous portion, but a bit bland for me. Maitre'd / owner was rushing his servers trying to get us out, but we had a reservation. People were standing at the front of the restaurant closely together in a line that was too close for social-distancing protocols, but it was very cold outside. Nice, but nothing to write home about. Not worth the higher prices. Would not go back.

Absolute 5 star dining experience! By far the most delicious and incredible food I’ve ever had in Pittsburgh.

The food we ate: fois gras, soupe à l’oignon, filet mignon, moules-frites Roquefort, gratin dauphinois, and the chèvre salad for our first two courses and for dessert we had a lovely strawberry mousse heart and crème brûlée. I can’t think of a single criticism for any of the foods we tried. We are so excited to come back and try more of the menu!

The drinks: absolutely lovely selection of wines, spirits, aperitifs, and digestifs! I had the Amourette (French) martini and my partner had the lychee martini. To die for! The kir royale was a fantastic aperitif that was a great precursor to all of our food selections.

The atmosphere is lovely and cozy. You walk in by the bakery section and are greeted with the enthralling smell of delicious pastries. There’s some indoor seating and a lovely, covered/insulated patio area at the back (where we sat). We ate here in mid February and with the help of some tall heat lamps, it was the perfect temperature out there. The whole place is very ambient and has lovely French decor. All the staff were fantastic and incredibly nice. We cannot wait to return.
