Authentic French bistro.
The Cacio Pepe was a bit undercooked and very salty. The octopus could have been more tender but overall pretty delicious. Great ambience. Decent prices.
Birthday brunch was fantastic.
We love Pascal and Sabine. We've been there on multiple occasions. This visit was disappointing though, not for the food, but for the business decisions.
We had wanted a simple pastry at brunch and were told that we could not get one. We were informed that we had to purchase the "tower of pastries" for $25. As only one of us wanted pastry, this was not appropriate for our table. The pastries are wonderful and I was looking forward to having one with brunch.
One of our party ordered the croque monsieur with an egg (croque madame). It came out with 2 eggs and he was charged for the second egg, which he did not order. The quiche, which we were told had caramelized onions, tomato, and spinach, was a delicious, quiche filling with a wonderful pastry, but no onions, tomatoes or spinach.
The service was wonderful. The waiter had the awkward position of trying to diplomatically explain the restaurant's policies.
Went for brunch again, this time at 10am, when they opened. Food was amazing, as always, there was no live music and we were able to have a wonderful morning full of conversation.
Delicious as always. Our favorite restaurant in Asbury Park, a town that has a lot of great restaurants.
yummy food, we shared a steak dish and was very tasty, the french martini's were also made to my liking. the scene was upbeat, and i like the look of the restaurant.. fun place to go with a group or a close friend and catch up on things. Staff was also very nice without being pretentious.
a little expensive but the food was delicious and the ambiance was nice. My husband, who is a French national, did not like the charcuterie (pate de campagne) but he did approve of the escargot & monkfish. The braised ribs & moules frites were great too.
Atmosphere, waiter, food...everything was fantastic! Will definitely return!
Went for brunch around noon on a Sunday. The food was fantastic as always, but they have live music around that time which makes conversation difficult.
Food has been better in the past. Love the mussels and fries.
This is one of our favorite Restuarants in Asbury. The food and service are alway terrific! We have enjoyed many meals here!
We arrived at 4:30pm on a Sunday with the restaurant empty in the dining area and a really happening bar scene. Although the restaurant dining area was empty, except for one table, we were not allowed to sit in a table larger than 2 seats. The hostess was very rude about it - the restaurant was completely empty. We only asked because the restaurant was empty and it was so early! Anyway, customer service was lacking -on to the food. The French onion soup was great as was the bread and butter. The monk fish dish was odd - imagine bacon and fish together. The burger was good as were the fries that came with it. The pot de creme was chocolate on top and salted Carmel on bottom (not what we expected). It was ok - too sweet for us but maybe others would like it. The coffee was bitter. All and all, we would not return, especially given the seating problems and attitude of the hostess.
Pascal and Sabine lived up to the hype. The food was NYC quality at Asbury Park prices. I can't remember when we have had a better dinner. The space is also very cool and service was prompt and friendly. I recommend dining here very highly!
Great spot for a date night.
We were looking forward to visiting this French Bistro for the first time.we ordered the escargot, steak tartare, foie gras and monkfish entree. The escargot were plump and juicy but a little too much salt and garlic. The steak tartare was like eating a raw onion. God quality meat and nice egg yolk but couldn’t taste the meat with the overkill of raw onion. The foie gras was cooked very well but again over seasoned with de salt and I found it strange that the warm foie was accompanied by a cold apple compote. The monkfish in pork cream sauce with mushrooms was the best dish of the night. We would consider going back.
We had a great dinner and overall outstanding experience. Chris our waiter is second to none on service!
I love Pascal and Sabine. Food was excellent. Can't wait to go again!!!!
Wait time was 40 minutes past reservation, then the computers went down while trying to receive check so we sat there for 20 minutes waiting
As a party of two with a reservation arriving well before the dinner crowd, we were still given one of the worst possible tables in the restaurant. Service was very good, with the exception of being the only party not served a basket of bread. Food was very tasty - but overpriced for the area.
I have been here many times and enjoy the food here each time. While not as French as I would want it to be, it is excellent notwithstanding. A great wine list and excelelent service each time we have dined at the restaurant.
As always, a wonderful food experience. Great night out!
My second time here, and both times, though expensive, were totally worth it. Outstanding food and atmosphere, great service.
We're a little removed from our days of trying several restaurants a week in North and Central Jersey, but if there's a better French dining experience we in NJ, we don't know it.
Pascal is great for Brunch. Nice and quiet vs. the normal very loud buzz of the dinner crowd. Plus the live music is nice - we had great service and the food is excellent as always. Oh - and the Bloody Mary's stand on their own!
Food was good service was lacking .
Everything was very nice and we got seated all the way in the back so it was quieter. The food was very good but our service was a little slower and we got out food and was waiting for our utensils... the food was also very very salty... but overall good and different. Loved the French wine
Delicious burgers! Normally we come to Pascale for a fancier experience but it was Sunday night and we all wanted something easy so we all got the Mr. Smith burger... It’s top notch w the best fries in town! ❤️❤️
Always love visits to Pascal & Sabine whether at the hip yet romantic bar with awesome cocktails and energetic bar service or at a booth or table with really well informed and professional staff. Most recently there fir brunch and loved the jidori dippy eggs!
The food choices were very unique and delicious. I had the braised lamb loin with homemade sweet potato gnocchi's which were to die for. The atmosphere was awesome. Recommend
It was a busy Friday night, long wait for drinks, first choice of appetizers ( agnolotti) was not available, second choice ( fried chicken thighs) never came out and was taken off the bill. Entrees were amazing, pork chop and sirloin steak were flavorful-and cooked to perfection. Dessert was a milk chocolate Creme de Pot and was out of this world. our waitress was lovely but not very attentive ( waiting for drinks, never checked about appetizer not coming out) - it was a busy Friday so maybe that was why but the food was outstanding and so I will go back.
We used to come here a lot but if you want to be ignored it’s still a good place to go. When the original chef left the place has gone down hill
Original menu, delicious food! Mike and his fellow servers were excellent!
Pascal & Sabine was a lovely experience. French Bistro menu. The food was fresh, flavorful & tasty. The feel of the restaurant was warm, we were a party of 4 and were seated in a booth. Which was very relaxing and great for conversing over our meal. Our waiter was very attentive , personable & informative about all the items on the menu & the daily specials. My friends & I found our evening most enjoyable and we will return.
The only issue that was a bit of a problem was parking, need to arrive much earlier then reservation to ensure you find a spot. Pascal & Sabine does offer valet, but when we arrived on Saturday evening at 7:00, we were informed valet was not available, it was full .
Might be advantageous to park elsewhere in town and walk or Uber
Overall an amazing establishment from the dinners to the decor. The atmosphere, while on the noisy side, was very nice. Our waitress Margo was outstanding. The food was high quality and fairly adventurous. Our only complaint was the hostess who seemed underdressed and made a mildly rude comment about how we should “be happy we made reservations or I wouldn’t be able to seat you.” Why even say such a thing? Especially considering we had reservations. Other than that the evening was splendid and the service was outstanding from the young gentleman filling the waters to our waitress, who was on point.
Atmosphere and service was very good; menu and wine list well done; but overcooked/overheated main course and miniature portions of cheese and saucisson sec were disappointing.
Atmosphere was great. Very limited menu, but food was all delicious. The hamburger and the mussels portions were very large, but the monkfish entree size was a joke; it looked more like a 'small plate'. Cocktails were superb. Overall quite pricey.
By far, the best in the area! Bring your friends, neighbors and family.
Liver Pate not to be missed!
Deserts are terrific.
