    Excellent rapport qualité prix! Les portions de homard sont généreuses. Le Mac & Cheese homard/crabe des neiges étaient délicieux. Le 1/2 homard était très bon!! Je reviendrai sans faute pour gouter le risotto au homard et les raviolis au homard!

    It was our first time there, the service is great. We started wih the "acras de morue" this was so delicious. We also took the salmon tartare this one was ok. As main dish we took the poutine and the burger pincettes. Both of these dishes was great portion and super tasty. This is our new spot!!

    Font valoir leur bar à cru, mais plusieurs des aliments n'y étaient pas disponible. Pas de pince de crabe pour le cocktail pincette non plus. Très décévant pour un restaurant de fruits de mer. Les aliments non disponibles devraient être enlevés de l'ardoise. Service plutôt lent. Homard très bon, accompagnements délicieux.

    Booked for brunch, but "real" kitchen only opened at 11am; at 10, it was just a regular brunch, benedict eggs, french toast, etc. Not bad cuisine, but nothing special - when we were expecting to have some seafood. Would be easy to add some theme items to the menu, even for earlier meals (ie: lobster or crab omelets, etc)

    Lobster tail as small as a shrimp. We had to return our plate because 2 cooks put salt on the Rizzotto and it was not good at all. I'm surprise that they still charged us for the Rizzotto plate. Service was good.

    It was quite calm on a Thursday, which I liked because we could hear ourselves talk. The food tasted great. My only complaint would be the portion. My friends ordered lobster rolls and only got one. Other than that, it was a good experience.

    Food was delicious! Had the lobster roll and it was perfectly seasoned. It wasn't filled as much as one would hope but it was still decent. Oysters were super fresh and tasty, and the servers were great. Nice sense of humor and always refilling water.

    Amazing service from David, out waiter, would definetely recommend. The food was delicious, we had 2 entrees, three meals and three drinks and all was good. We had shots on the house to celebrate a birthday instead of dessert and that was the waiter's idea. Overall great!

    Food was too salty (fries, homemade sauce, appetizers), lobster roll portion looked small compared to picture on instagram and plate was full of fries/salad but the lobster roll itself felt a small and underwhelming. Very good service though, and the place is nice.

    I've been to pincette twice now and both times the fries which are a major part of Pincette's food offering, are awful. They simply don't taste very nice! It cannot be this difficult to produce great fries. Pity, because everything else is great, starting with the charming staff. Until the fries change, I won't be coming back.
