My favorite French neighborhood restaurant. I go to Pascalou often.

Excellent food, consistently great, and quiet enough to have a comfortable conversation around the table. The Ceasar Salad was not anything I have known before to be called Ceasar Salad, but it was very tasty nevertheless [with apples and nuts and without the traditional dressing]. The duck confit was fantastic, which is really a rarity and the desert was both beautiful, plentiful and very tasty. The service was very polite and accommodating, efficient and not pushy. Definitely, a place to go/return to.

This was the second time we had dinner at Pascalou and this time brought our adult grandchildren. Pascalou is a typical little French bistro obviously sponsored by the locals. The food is good - even quite imaginative -, the service very attentive. We certainly will recommend it and will be back ourselves.

The pre-fixe before 6:30 pm is a great buy. Good food, good service and wonderful ambience. If you can't get there that early (or don't want to) the food and value are wonderful. You feel like you are in a very intimate Bistro.

The prix-fixe dinners (orders in by 6:45) are excellent value, with many choices for appetizer and entree. And their a la carte menu also looks good. The only downside is that seating is somewhat crowded. But at these prices, who can complain!

I love this restaurant. The menu is enticing and the tastes are delicious. The food is French with other continental choices as well.

The restaurant is tiny and there are definitely some tables that are not as good as others. I would suggest reservations. There is one small restroom on the second level with a stairway to access it so it would be difficult for those with ambulation problems .

I will return to this restaurant many more times.

Made a reservation for three and adjusted to four. The ground floor was packed and only one spot available. Long 'communal' type table outside the kitchen. Made conversation difficult as the noise level was high. The next time, and there will be a next time, we will repair to the second floor. Lovely and quiet. Reminded me of now closed favorite - Teodora on 57th Street.

Good food that ‘s attractively prepared with a warm ambience that promotes a nice feeling in the room! No service though when the wine glass is empty. Definitely a turnoff! But this hopefully is due to oversight- not a new policy.

Cozy and quaint spot on the upper east side. I had lunch with a friend on a Saturday and we had a very nice time. Food is tasty and seasoned well, the prefix menu is a great value, and the service was very good. No complaints overall but the venue is really small. Don’t go with more than 3 people! Otherwise, I recommend that you give it a try! CHEERS!

Their early evening prix-fixe is a bargain with many great choices but the best thing about the restaurant is that the food is delicious! and the people who go there are nice and interesting and we had a wonderful conversation with our "neighbors"! It is small - not fancy but a perfect bistrot.. and with Italian and Asian specialties as well as French.
