P�ch� is Austin�s very first absinthe bar, serving rich French cuisine and pre-Prohibition style cocktails along with a carefully curated wine list. The bartenders are always ready to answer questions and educate guests on the libations served. P�ch� strives to provide an atmosphere that is both mysterious and fun.

The menu at P�ch� is tailored to the drink menu and features snacks such as mushroom fritters and grilled octopus, as well as meals such as duck confit and butternut squash ravioli. The rib eye and the Texas wild boar are local favorites and be sure to finish your meal with an adult milkshake such as the bananas Foster.

We had an amazing time at Peche, celebrating a work promotion and birthday with family from out of town. The restaurant is fairly small and intimate. The food was great -- unique selections that you don't see every day. The best part was the service. We were greeted by the owner after we sat down, who spent some time with us going through their specials, giving us recommendations, and taking our drink and appetizer orders. Overall we had a very special time, and will be back for sure.

Waitress was only ok, disappointing for where we were and the cost of it. Drinks were outstanding.

Average restaurant. The menu is quite limiting with average food. We ordered the oysters (very small in size), steak (nothing special) and the burger (again, nothing special) with a $50 bottle of wine and our bill was almost $200.

The ambiance is cool as the bar includes a sliding ladder and nicely showcases their large variety of spirits.

I would recommend this place for a drink not food.

Very disappointed in the food. The previous evening we had eaten
at Paris 7th in Fort Worth. It was excellent. Unfortunately the food at Peche was bland and tasted like it had been heated up.

The food was outstanding and the waiter was very professional and courteous. We went on a Sunday night and it was not noisy and we could have a conversation without raising our voices, but not quiet to where we had to whisper!

We had great food and drinks, and our server was wonderful. It just really sucked that my S.O. and I were seated between two large parties. Made our intimate meal a lot more crowded than what we'd prefer.

I googled the most romantic restaurants and Peche popped up multiple times! But I personally wouldn't describe it as romantic as the tables were so close you couldn't take your coat off without smacking the person at the next table and you could hear every conversation in the packed restaurant. The food and drinks were pretty good, minus the main course.

We enjoyed our food and service. It is not a fancy place but very good menu with a more rustic bar setting. Parking on the street and a lot about a 2 blocks away.

First time here. Valentine’s Day. Service was great. Drinks and food was good. Didn’t like the way so many tables were pushed into space. Originally they had us in the front booth but there was another table right beside where we couldn’t sit comfortably without the server not being able to help table beside. We asked for different table and got seated in booth. Would come back

We went here for Valentine’s Day. It is overpriced for what you get -quality and quantity wise. We got a cheese board with 1/2 a dollop of honey and jam, you could literally barely see it on the board that’s how little it was, 5 grapes cut in half and 3 types of cheese- an ounce each- not even expensive cheese- blue cheese, Wisconsin cheddar, and another which tasted like a light Asiago. The Pomme Frits and mashed potatoes were good, the short rib was barely eatable.

I would not recommend and would not go again.

it was excellent. the environment is exciting and busy, but feels classy. the absinthe collection was extensive and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. they were service oriented which is nice on a nice occasion dinner. the food was excellent. my steak was overcooked, but they remedied the situation quickly and the replacement was perfect. i would conservatively consider it one of my top 5 places to fine dine in Austin. it was great and a lot of fun. thanks

I wouldn’t recommend this place for a special occasion or a first date. It is more oriented for group happy hours and the internal decor reflects that. Went for a bday dinner and took 30 minutes to get our first drink + app. The neighboring group that sat down after us, got the same appetizer 10 minutes before us. 45 minutes later our mains came out before the other 2 apps. One main was cold. We asked for a wine menu but the wait staff never came back to take that order. We declined to have to wait for dessert. The only saving grace was the food was delicious, but given the service, it is not worth the full price cost.

My thoughts are this place is way over rated. The food was just ok for the how expensive it was. It is extremely loud, so if you're looking for a place to chat, this isn't it. Service was just ok.
