European
Pascal & Sabine is a fresh take on the European Brasserie, where good, simple food, strong drink, and those passing through come together to create a rich, sensory experience of precocious exuberance. Taking cues from Albert Lamorisse's signature work, The Red Balloon, Pascal & Sabine embraces the flight of fancy and ephemeral nature of an inflated balloon, adding its own unique touch of playfulness within its doors. Featuring cave-like banquettes and the highly regarded artwork of Paolo Ventura, Pascal & Sabine is a white string to hold onto, pulling you above the monotony of the world.

Loved the cocktails, the selection of wine, the food. Didn’t love the seats in the booths, they were too low, felt like I was a child at the grownups table, and I am 5’ 6”. The service was outstanding, just would change the booth seats.

We usually love Pascal but we were very disappointed tonight with the entree’s. They must have a new chef. The Dover Sole, $65, was not seasoned well, undercooked and too salty. The Chicken was too salty and not seasoned well, and the Soft Shell Crabs special were too salty and greasy. The mussels white wine dunking broth was not rendered enough and needed more seasoning. I’ve had all these dishes at Pascal before, and they tasted completely different tonight, and not in a good way. Worst of all, the Pascal Manhattan cocktails, which are usually my favorite, had too much Vermouth. Where have you gone Pascal and Sabine? I will change to “recommend” if the food improves next time. For now, would not recommend.
Bright spots were the charcuterie and NY Strip Steak.

Service was friendly, attentive and professional. The food was well prepared and presented and of high quality. I found the wine list to have an amazing array of European wines at very approachable prices. We had the porterhouse steak frites for two, and again it was well prepared and a great piece of prime beef. We both thought that entree might be a little overpriced for the weight of the steak but it was by no means a problem nor did it affect the high regard we have for this restaurant on our first visit. I have already recommended it to several friends and coworkers and look forward to returning myself.

Had dinner with friends before the NJ Gay Mens Chorus concert. Had a great seat in the back of the restaurant, great for conversation because it wasn’t difficult to hear against other diners’ conversations. I had the onion soup and steak tartar. Both recommended by waitress and we fantastic. Look forward to my return visit.

P & S is the only French restaurant I've ever eaten at that doesn't have either Pernod or Ricard pastis.
Appetizers were ok.
My wife's steak was good ,but my trout almondine was terrible.

Service was slow, so we skipped dessert.

A very forgettable dinner.

I've always wanted to really like P&S - but over the past year - it's really declined. The food is always delicious - but the kitchen wait time is ridiculous. Every time I've been over the last year we've had to wait an unbelievable amount of time for our meal.

This past Saturday nite - I went for dinner alone. I was sat in the back (having a reservation for over a week) at a lounge type table in the middle of a large group party/celebration. I felt awkward and really silly.

Then I simply ordered the burger (which is always really good) and I had to wait over an hour for my food. I did watch tables around me that sat after me - one by one - get their meals while I had to wait for mine.

The waitress was very sweet and kept apologizing - and did comp one glass of wine - I guess that's something. But by the time my food finally came - I was truly over it.

It will be a very long time before I go back to P&S. For a special occasion or evening out - I much prefer Avenue in Long Branch over this place.

Once again,P&S does not disappoint..though we had hoped to be able to sit at champagne bar but could not due to crowd there before we arrived, we were seated in the dining room section adjacent to that In same room as main bar—fantastic service, food and evening! Cannot wait
To get back again soon!

My reservation as made weeks in advance on OPenTable. When we walked in they seated us (4 adults) at a bistro size bar table. Our knees were literally touching. We got up and went back to the hostess station to request a regular table. They proceeded to tell me that this was the table I requested.... I Didn’t request any table.?. They then started to give me a hard time about moving us to a booth or regular table. Not a good start. We traveled from Metuchen and our friends from Howell. Where else would we go at 6:00 on a Sat night in Asbury Park at this point. They said they were very busy. This is not acceptable as I would never have gone there without a reservation and always make mine on OpenTable. We held our ground and they moved us to a table unfortunately again too close to the bar.
The food was great but the service was not. Further the noise level ( again seated near the bar) was beyond tolerable. Not my first time there but certainly the worst experience there.

The ambiance was worth the visit .Add to that free valet parking on weekends and you have a great start. The downside was so so service and a decidedly tasteless omelette making Easter Brunch kind of a split decision. The gem salad was a winner and we will give it another try. if the food is better next time this could be a real winner.

This was a terrible experience. We have been going to the restaurant since it’s opening. When we arrived the waiter was awful and behaved as if he would rather be anywhere but there. I love your omelette with the goat cheese and though it was on the menu with Swiss, I asked if I could order it. Instead of saying yes, the waiter went into a whole song and dance about restaurant prep and that things were brought up from downstairs. Etc. Ridiculous. Then my daughter and I ordered the steak frites. He kept pushing an appetizer because he said it would take awhile. Both came out wrong. We sent them back. My daughter couldn’t eat hers because it was burnt. I took mine home. Her steak was taken off the bill. When I went to eat mine later it was fat. Waiter never apologized and had an attitude. There are too many places to dine at today.

The only thing that was good was the service. Our 3 steaks were so tough, a steak knife could barely cut them. Eggs were all over cooked on the steaks, and the eggs that came on the Benedict were raw. The Benedict also came out a very long time after everyone else’s meals, hence the rush and the raw eggs. A big disappointment, especially for the $.

We made a reservation on a Sunday evening. For appetizer I got the Hand Pies which was delicious. For entree the Coq au Vin, Scallops Risotto and Trout. The Dessert Trio was a great choice, we ordered two! Beignets were great as well. My favorite was the Milk Chocolate dessert. Cappuccino was also perfect. Prompt and continuous water filling. The only thing I would mention is I felt the protein to carb ratio was
a bit off, my husband and I both had just meat left to eat (not complaining) but it didn't feel 100% balanced. Love the ambiance and great for dinner with my husband! Well worth the money in my eyes for a delicious dining experience.
