The food was phenomenal! In fact, it exceeded my expectations. I had the trout and my date had the filet mignon. By far the best steak I, or my fiancee, have ever had. The trout was delicious as well, seemingly melting in my mouth. The service was outstanding, leaving my fiancee and myself impressed. The ambiance was spot on for a french bistro feel. The tableside crepe service was something special that really made the evening. Great place for a date, when you want somewhere that will feel special, while being affordable and comfortable.

The Paris 66 staff was extremely courteous and efficient; the atmosphere was warm and enjoyable for an anniversary Sunday Brunch. Of course, the French cuisine (from beverages to the entre' to a divine Crepe Suzette) exceeded expectations, as usual!
Owner/Host, Frederic, and our server, Alex, went out of their way to ensure that the meal (and the celebration) were unforgettable! Please plan a Paris 66 visit soon!

To want to be a thing and to be a thing are different. Paris 66 wants to provide a quality introduction to French food and culture. It succeeds. The waitstaff is helpful and friendly. I had a great time.

I really feel for restaurants with the pandemic going on, it's tough right now. That being said my trip here made me decide to hold off on the fine dining until things normalize.

In short:
half sized menu - ok

Out of mussels at 7pm on a Saturday with a half menu? - not ok

Half sized bread order? - not ok

45$ instead of 35$ lamb shank dish? - that's ok, I understand.

That lamb dish served with a *small* handful of ..fries? With a sauce that is no longer cooked with wine? - very not ok.

Macarons? - still good

All entrees served with a small handful of fries? - not ok.

In summary: get the ready made lamb shank at Costco. It tastes just as good, and with a couple baked potatoes you have a better meal than what we were served for 35$ instead of the $200 that we spent on dinner.

I love this restaurant, but pandemic or no I'm not spending 200$ for a dinner I can cook myself at home for 25% of the price. I am sorry. Definite decrease in quality.

Awful, rushed, poor service. We had reservations, and upon seating, we were informed that "the kitchen closes in 7 minutes" - as if we were at iHOP. We quickly ordered, along with a bottle of champagne. I asked for red wine with the entree, as we ordered red meat. The server said he disagreed with me about my wine order! It seems he didn't want to place the order with the bar. Our entrees came out as proteins in mediocre sauces with - I kid you not - quick-frozen concession stand-quality french fries as the accompaniment! Mushroom cream sauce was gelatinous, the demi-glace was greasy. Server denied espresso to another table ("we don't have that"), so I asked for it as well. Lo-and-behold, with my raised eyebrows at his denial of espresso, one was produced (MAGIC). I cannot believe I spent $200 on this pathetic excuse of a dining experience. To contextualize, I have 10+ yrs working in and teaching fine dining - I know a thing or two. I'm no angry Karen, but this truly sucked.

I am sorry you feel this way about your dining experience. As a trained Chef, you must know the challenges, particularly during this difficult time that restaurants are collectively facing.I am the owner and I was there.I wish you had asked to speak to a Manager/Owner and had given me the opportunity to address your experience.I would have told you that yes, we have espresso and our French fries are freshly cut in house daily. By the way, the server you had is no longer working for me. Thank you

It was so nice to go out to a dinner date again and being on the deck at Paris 66 did not disappoint. Having just reopened there were a few service glitches, but the food was excellent. We shared mussels, and our entrees of filet mignon with mushroom sauce and trout were cooked to perfection. Very flavorful and perfect, as was the ratatouille side. Chocolate mousse and espresso topped off the evening. Great champagne and wine (Bourgogne) added to the festive date night!

The food was excellent - the service was very slow, but they were grossly understaffed for the amount of activity of the place. It took a very long time (15 minutes) to put our initial drink order in due to the ONE very knowledgeable but exhausted server. The food was incredible. The chef created delicious French fare!

Great service. Food was good. Was disappointed that my medium rare filet mignon came out well done—a hint of pink center—and was told “that’s the way the Chef prepares it”.

The waiter was extremely rude to us. He slammed objects down whenever we’d ask him for basic things like “could we have sparkling water? Could we see a desert menu?”

I had an extremely uncomfortable experience here.

it's been a few years since we've dined here but the quality has diminished . the waitress brought our drinks took our order but then we didn't see her for 25 minutes when she brought us a basket of bread. ( the first one is free the next is for added cost)we didn't have bread plates so we had to hold it or put it on the table. after being seated for 45 minutes our appetizers finally arrived .another 20 minutes until our entrees arrived but they were not hot . there were four of us . 1 got mussels . they were delicious and a good value. one got a buckwheat crepe . it was was bland with little garnish . not worth the price . another entree was the salmon . very small portion with four little asparagus hardly any sauce . over priced . I had the duck . good portion could of used more sauce . there's so many better places to dine in Pittsburgh for a better value.

The service was a pleasure.
The duck breast was excellent.
The accompanying vegetables were beautifully seasoned.
The haricots verts were perfect.
The crepes framboises and ice cream were lovely.
Sitting beside the plastic sheet in freezing weather was no fun.

Terrific attentive service. However, the Vesper martini, beautifully prepared shaken not stirred was served in a warmed martini coupe. The seared pork belly was overcooked to death...to the level of a dog chew toy.

THE MOST HORRIBLE PLACE I HAVE EVER VISITED! I asked for croque madam and indicated no ham because I am a vegetarian, the waitress rolled her eyes at me with a nasty look so at the end of the meal I didn’t leave her a tip. When I was out AND ON THE STREET her co worker came after me and said: you didn’t leave her a tip!! OMFG! Are you serious?? Tip is an option for good service not mandatory! I said- the service was not good so he screamed at me: DONT COME HERE ANYMORE! I was so shocked! Who does something like that? Force a customer to leave a tip and scream at them in the middle of the street??
So now you ALL know before you go to this awful place: if you don’t leave a tip, you will be chased and screamed at.

Another great Sunday brunch at Paris 66. We love sitting in the back patio drinking Mimosas and catching up with our son. The Tomato Provence omelet of the day was excellent with the accompanying salad. Our favorite way to complete rate experience is a plate of macaroons. The staff is very welcoming and very focused on customer service.

My lovely wife and I was engaged in Paris after dinner and before desert at the Eiffel Tower restaurant 58 Tour Eiffel and so a Valentines Day dinner at a restaurant with fine French cuisine and atmosphere was a perfect start. The lamb was cooked perfectly, the scallop appetizer was outstanding, and the French Martinis were perfect for my wife who is not a martini person. It was a lovely evening. Bring your wallet and smile - you get what you pay for. Jim & Pam (not from The Office)

What a perfect place place to spend Valentines Day! The table had three perfect roses and two perfect Macarons in a bag to take home when we sat down...it was beautiful in the restaurant and the food lived up to beauty...foie gras on toast to start, a filet and frites - perfection but really the best thing on the plate was the haricots vert...and the gorgeous Gaby and Jules plump heart pastry with champagne...perfection! I love Paris 66 and have always had a good meal, but this was really special...oh and the wine pairings, also a treat!
