Pigalle is a French restaurant in the Midtown West area of New York City. It's a beautifully classic dining room with elegant furnishings and an iconic ring of lantern lights on the ceiling. This restaurant has a comfortable, antique theme that makes it stand out. Guests will enjoy the open eating space and gorgeous old-fashioned knick knacks on display around the room.
Pigalle is open for service throughout the day, offering every meal. Breakfast and brunch present a variety of options for casual or fine dining, including the eggs Copenhagen, pancakes or waffles with fresh fruit and omelettes. Popular lunch and dinner options are the escargot, grilled leg of lamb, duck confit salad, French onion soup and the bistro crab cake. Guests can also order a drink from the bar to enjoy with the meal at Pigalle.
I had a lamb burger which was rather fatty ( I guess some people would appreciate that because it was juicy). I thought the menu rather limited.
this is moot since the restaurant is closing - unfortunately
Had eaten at Pigalle previously for lunch and was very pleased. This Sunday brunch was not good. The food was fair, the service awful. We had to ask for everything from bread to another straw. Won't be going back.
We were very happy with our brunch! We all had trouble choosing our meals with all of the appealing choices. All of our meals were excellent. It was a bit noisier than I like, but it was very busy. The prices were quite reasonable.
Great brunch spot near the theater district. Delicious mimosas.
Not a great experience. Very loud. We asked to be seated away from the very sunny windows as it was a hot day and we wanted a table in the back away from the sun where it was much cooler. Although there were tables there, the host refused to seat us. The tables in the sun were empty and for good reason. She said she needed to fill those seats first. This was the first and last time for this place.
Food wasn't great. Escargots were tasteless and the swordfish was like sawdust. Very overdone. My daughters burger was tough and the fries were mediocre. Service was ok but nothing to write home about. Disappointing all around.
This was my second visit to Pigalle, and it fell short of the first one, . The bench on the wall is too low for the table and the springs are dead; when I asked to be moved the hostess did so promptly, but made a face. The escargots were awful - strange consistency and flavor. On the plus side, the pesto ravioli was wonderful, and the table service was friendly. The restaurant was jammed so it remains popular; I wouldn't refuse to go there again, but given the wealth of other restaurants in the neighborhood I won't go out of my way to go back.
We had a pleasant experience as always, although we found the menu was smaller, offering fewer choices than in the past. Food was good. I had an excellent dinner salad. Service was okay, not bad, but not terribly sharp or catering. It's a great place for the theater neighborhood - convenient to theaters and spacious enough not to feel cramped like so many theater district restaurants are. It's dependable, and I mean that in a good way!
The quiche was wonderful. They were a bit slow on service but the manager took some money off the bill and I think that was very nice of them.
It's a very pleasing place for dinner+, especially before and after the theatre. We had drinks and pate at the bar, then dinner--and on other occasions, we've returned after the show for a nightcap/snack. Their pate is delicious and they serve a truly excellent boeuf bourguignon. Service is friendly and swift. Excellent restaurant, highly recommended.
We had one of the best meals we've ever eaten and a very enjoyable dining experience. I've been to Pigalle many times and have also purchased a gift certificate for a colleague. While I have always found the food and service to be top notch, this was simply an outstanding meal and service experience. The food was incomparable and the service was perfect. Our waiter was pleasant, polite and had just the right touch. Available, but not hovering. I would, and have, highly recommend Pigalle to anyone, it's always an enjoyable dining experience.
Pigalle is one of my favorite restaurants to go to because the food is really good and the price is reasonable. I also love the French ambience. The best part is that it is close to the theaters, so it is perfect to eat there before going to the theater.
Great location but not good food. Mediocre at best. Nobody there at 1pm. Improve the kitchen and people will come.
We have come to Pigalle every time we visit NYC. It serves as a good place for just about any meal; breakfast, lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is lovely and borders between chaotic and quiet/reserved. The food is average as it is often overcooked yet tasty. Regardless, the place is so charming such things can often be overlooked. Service this time around was good and special requests were honored easily. I would recommend Pigalle for just about anyone when in the Times Square District.
Server was rude. Never greeted table. Approached with "Yes?" to take order. Appetizer and entree brought at same time...within a minute of ordering. That's some disgusting pre-prepared food.
Having been to Pigalle's numerous times, I was very disappointed with the wait service. We were 9 people. Never offered a second drink, some people did not get their appetizers, and had to rush out for the theatre even though we had told the waiter we had theatre tickets. The food was great as usual. The service, for the first time, was poor.
Wonderful place. Good drinks and cheese plate. Very accommodating.
The night we were there, the a/c was broken, and the restaurant was hot and noisy. But our waitress was terrific, and got us in and out in time for theater with ease. Rumor has it that this place is closing which is sad sad sad. It is one of our favorite theatre district joints.
Food was better than service which was slow and distracted.
