Food was bland, service mediocre. It seemed old, outdated and lifeless. Very disappointing.

Our experience at Place Pigalle was fine but not outstanding. View was nice, food was okay but service was a bit off. Example, we (and others around us) were asked for our orders shortly after sitting down with no drinks offer or information regarding specials. When we did ask for the specials and some time to think, that seemed like a bit of an imposition. My lamb was a bit tough, my co-diner's pork was pretty dry. The restaurant has good reviews so we may try again, perhaps we hit an off night, but I suspect that we will not be doing so very soon.

Wonderful Parisian layout and feeling, along with a great view. I had very nice salad and ordered bouillabaisse for a main course. Great shellfish, lots of crab (a real treat) and delicious salmon. However, the tomato broth base seemed to have not been seasoned at all. One crouton was included but no rouille, which is really one of the treats of this dish. Probably my fault for not asking about such things, but I probably won't return.

I've eaten at Place Pigalle about 50 times over the years, and it never fails to satisfy. The food is excellent, the staff exceptionally capable, and the views are terrific. The only downside is paying the outrageous parking fees in the market.

The food was very good - I had the octopus and sausage entree (like a cassoulet) and it was wonderful. We love Place Pigalle, and the combination of great food, ambiance, and a nice view works well.
The only minor flaw was the service - staff was very friendly, but we had some long breaks -between appetizer and main course, after we finished eating - with no contact w/waitress/staff. They then brought us the bill without asking if we wanted dessert - while we noticed that the table next to us got dessert menus w/o asking. We did not want dessert, but would have liked the option. Also, I had noted that it was my wife's birthday on the reservation, but there was no acknowledgement of that either. I think this was a blip due to the restaurant being very busy.

Both of us consider Place Pigalle a "favorite". On this visit, we were in just after opening, so the room was extra quiet and the service was perfect. Our food choices inspired a second glass of wine. Perfect in every way.

I have loved Place Pigalle for such for many years. Salads, their signature muscles, bread, and pate are my go-to's. On this occasion we took a business associate there for dinner. We were very disappointed. For most of the evening there were glaring ceiling spot lights, making a negative impact on the ambiance. The seafood soup was luke warm and the mushrooms accompanying the salmon were overcooked in an obscene amount of butter. I would still recommend Place Pigalle for lunch and will return. But not for dinner.

This small, fantastic French restaurant is nestled behind the fish vendors in the iconic Pike Place Market with tremendous views of Puget Sound and the sunsets. The food is ever-changing with a nice mix of local ingredients with great French preparations. The daily specials are always great, and always include local fish and local raised meat. The wine list is broad, special and something for all tastes and price points. Try the calamari and the crème brule....obviously not together!

Is there anyway to give Place Pigalle more than 5 stars??? I've always had 5-star service and food, but this time they managed to out-do themselves. The octopus was the most tender I've ever had. The Bouillebasse had an extremely generous portion of crab and the salmon was buttery and rich. Guy provided animated, friendly service and expedited our meal due to theater tickets. Shane makes the best Corpse Reviver No.2 in town and I've tried a LOT. This secluded spot in the market is a hidden gem. You must try it if you're downtown.

We had a wonderful lunch at Place Pigalle as our Valentine’s celebration, 4 days after the 14th for two busy business people!

We were seated at a small table, yet within 10 minutes the larger corner table next to us vacated and our server asked if we wanted to move : yes please!
Looked at the reserve wine list and the bottle of Chablis 2013 I ordered was sublimely rich and deep amber colored, and went wonderfully with the menu.
Having read the restaurant history, my lady ordered the mussels (laced with bacon) and I the calamari dijonnaise for starters. Both were delicious, the calamari being the best I have ever had in 23 years in PNW.
For entrees the bouillabase was also delicious, and the rabbit was succulent. All dishes came with simply amazing sauces. The chocolate (pot au crème?) dessert we shared was also delicious and being very full at that point not quite finished!
Our server was attentive and friendly and never pushy, offered more bread, kept wine and water glasses topped up, as we spent over 2.5 hours enjoying each others’ company, the amazing view (snow, sleet, rain … and then blue sky sunshine) and the wonderful ambience. We’ll be back!

Outstanding in all respects. This has been one of my favorite Seattle dining places for 20+ years if not mistaken. We had a wonderful table in the corner window with a great view of the Seattle harbor for our business lunch. The availability and offerings of fresh seafood that day for lunch was unbelievable. Fresh, well prepared and served in style. Our waitress was a dream as she took very good care of us but also knew how to stand back and not over pamper guests. I would strongly recommend this restaurant for any occasion at any time. A real GEM in Seattle.

I happened upon this gem at Pike Place Market, was in the mood for Bouillabaisse, saw it on the menu, and gave it a try.
I was not disappointed.
It was a Monday night, and the small charming dining room was not crowded.
I started with the LaSalle cocktail, which is fresh grapefruit juice, gin, Aperol, elderflower liquor, and rhubarb bitters.
It was super-delicious.
I ordered the Washington Pink Lady apple and Belgian endive salad with bleu cheese, candied walnuts, and fresh herbs. It was so good!
Then I had the Northwest Bouillabaisse. It was loaded with clams, mussels, prawns, salmon, and a huge amount of Dungeness crab, in a delicately seasoned tomato broth.
It was perfect, exactly what I hoped it would be.
I paired it with a very good dry rosé.
The service was excellent as well.
I'll be back, and I highly recommend Place Pigalle.

First time trying this restaurant. We were not disappointed. Tried the calamari to start based on other reviews - fabulous. Beet and arugula salad was wonderful too. Some had salmon prepared differently and someone tried the bouillabaisse. Everything was so good. The service was excellent. Will go again!

Oooh! The pate was delicious! My husband I shared a green salad. He had a bowl of the onion soup - which was a little thin and light on onions - and I had the pate with accompaniments. Generous portion with very tasty capers, cornichons and greens. Perfect winter lunch!
