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!

Paris 66 is just a great place to have an authentic French bistro experience. The ambiance, wait staff and food is truly excellent and memorable. We go there frequently because they are consistently exceptional in the execution of the dining experience. Love the native French speaking waiters. They are friendly, attentive and go out of their way to assure you have a wonderful experience. Go! You’ll love it!

I have been to Paris 66 several times. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. After working at Balthazar in NYC, Paris 66 is the only place in Pittsburgh I can find real French onion soup! The staff are French and are wonderful. I love everything that I have had on the menu. It is worth the money and time to get to!

We were seated right away with our reservation time. Service was excellent. Tables are a little small. With tableware, plates, candles and appetizer plates it was a little crowed. Food was excellent and we plan on coming back with our friends for the summer menu. No matter what dessert you think you want, get the creme brulee. Absolute heaven in your mouth.

Delicious, savory, and delightful. Making the food aspect even more superb was the warm and inviting friendliness of the staff....made us feel like we were back in Paris at one of the great neighborhood restaurants!

Scrumptious bakery items...must have.

We came to Pittsburgh but ended up in Paris. A real bistro atmosphere. Two filets with frites, a cassoulet and a coq au vin. Super generous potions. We all agreed we loved our food. We have lemon tarts to eat at home. I’d go for lunch to try the crepes. Good service.

Our meal was good, good portion sizes and taste. Everything was fine, but nothing blew us away.

The service was great, our waitress explained all the dishes and gave her insight. 4 stars since nothing on our meal was outstanding.

Fantastic French cuisine. Many of the staff speak French and were very helpful. Our waiter explained to us not only what the dishes were, but how and WHY they were prepared the way they were prepared. A pricey night out but the food, service, and quality were all great.

Went for Easter and had the special Easter brunch menu. It was excellent and even though our reservation wasn't until the early afternoon and the staff had already had a long day they were fantastic. The entire experience was great.

First time at Paris 66, authentic French with incredible atmosphere. We were seated in the extension patio, where is the summer open air. Very nice and will return when the weather clears in Pittsburgh to enjoy the open authentic dining

Paris 66 is an adorable restaurant, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff is exceptional, these three things were perfect. The food however was very disappointing, the Escargot appetizer in garlic butter & parsley had no garlic flavor & way to much parsley, the lamb was cooked to perfection where it just fell off of the bone but had no taste, nor did the whipped carrots that came with it. Everything was so bland. The martini that I had was delicious and so was the chocolate mousse, but for the price that we paid for our meal $130.00 plus tip, it was very disappointing. The other strange thing was that there were no salt or pepper shakers on any of the tables. I don't know, maybe because it was Easter Brunch and they were busy but for the price I am not willing to risk it again. I am not bothered putting out that kind of money for a meal but if I do I expect it to be delicious which it was not. I am so disappointed, I was so looking forward to going there. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We have never once had less than a spectacular dinner experience at Paris 66. From the warm greeting the moment you walk in the door, to the atmosphere, the fresh ingredients and beautiful food presentation, the wine selection, the delicious desserts and, by far, the best service in the city.

It's a little piece of Europe, hidden in the city.

We love it and will continue to return again, and again.

Our experience at Paris 66 was OK but not up to par with the prices. We had reservations for 4 people and were seated as we arrived. It took more than 10 minutes for a server to stop by our table. We ordered drinks which also took a while to arrive. One person ordered the filet which she said was good. I ordered the duck which was overcooked and I could barely cut through the skin. My husband had the pork shank which he said was good but vegetables were flavorless. The bill for the 4 of us with drinks was $400+. We ordered a few glasses of wine but only 1 or 2 per person. There are other great restaurants in Pittsburgh with much better food and service.

We love Paris and were looking forward to an authentic French restaurant in Pittsburgh. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food was excellent and exactly as we remember from our trip to France and our waitress, Marie-Lise was wonderful. My daughter already said she wants to go back for her birthday this summer. This is now our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh.

Extremely disappointing first visit to this restaurant on Valentine’s Day. The volume of reservations was clearly overwhelming for both the kitchen and waitstaff. The food was not particularly good and my entree arrived to the table cold. My dining partner said the Filet Mignon was “TV dinner style”. Portion sizes were small and the cost (more than $100/person with auto gratuity included for the Valentine’s Day menu) was exorbitant given the quality of the experience.

Place is good, food is good too but is little pricey. And there were less options as was in the online menu. If there was different menu for any special occasion, they should have updated in the website or at least in the confirmation email

The cuisine was extraordinary, but the bill was ridiculously overpriced. I've dined at some of the finest restaurants in New York City and didn't pay even half the price of Bistro 66. Their pricing needs a serious reality check.

Food and service were amazingly good, but take out a loan before you make a reservation here.

Now that we are retired, we have come to the conclusion that a Valentine’s Day lunch in a favorite restaurant is preferable to a Valentine’s Day dinner. We don’t miss the crowds, the wait times or the higher prices in the evening. We booked a late lunch at Paris 66 and took along 2 friends and a favorite bottle of wine - for a reasonable $15 corkage fee. The food was fabulous. Rave reviews for the fois gras, the buckwheat crepes, a silky butternut squash soup and divine smoked salmon and goat cheese quiche. The beautiful Marie-Lise is a knowledgeable and welcoming server. And the whole experience is almost as good as a quick trip to a Paris cafe. We all decided that Valentine’s Day lunch at Paris 66 is a tradition worth continuing!
