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.
