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!

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!

We just love this restaurant! I always want everything on the menu! It has never disappointed. We now have an annual tradition where we have lunch at Place Pigalle on New Year’s Eve day to celebrate our anniversary. This year was our 35th anniversary. Usually, our kids are with us, but this year they were elsewhere, but they surprised us by contacting the restaurant ahead of time and made arrangements to pay for our meal. It was a truly lovely surprise and we felt so proud of them, and our meals were awesome. It was the perfect way to end 2017 and ring in the new year!

Place Pigalle is a nice place at the market. The food is good, pretty genuine French/PNW, with quality local-sourced ingredients. We had escargot, a salad and rabbit, all was very good. The service was excellent, which made for a nice time. Cocktails were good. It was pretty expensive, though, even for Seattle, so that reduces the overall score. Try to go when you can get a table by the window, which makes for a better experience, because the view is spectacular.

We have been visiting Place Pigalle every time we are in Seattle. In the past severa years this was an excellent place. However, this last time it really disappointed us. Although it was December 24, they were open - and we expected the same excellent service and food as before. But this time the service was so-so (the server did not even know how to decant red wine) and the rabbit (we always liked it in the past) partially was undercooked. Maybe because of the day they did not have their usual staff (server and cook), but then why stay open if cannot prvovide good service and food?
Probably we still will give them another chance next time we are there...

My husband and I go out to a nice dinner twice a year, once for our anniversary and once before Christmas. We have been to Place Pigalle many times in the past and selected it again this year because we liked the food, ambiance, and the view. Our experience this year was not up to the normal Place Pigalle standard. Once we sat at our table at 7:30, we were told to order quickly because they were closing the kitchen because it was a slow night. We were expecting to spend at least a couple hours over dinner and wine, but felt hurried due to the kitchen closing. Our waiter even told us that he normally works the lunch shift and we very much felt like we needed to eat and be out of there in an hour. We ordered the mussels which were good as always. I had the cioppino was was excellent. My husband had the salmon special (for $40+) in a tomato broth. The salmon was dry and swimming in the tomato broth. It looked like they used the cioppino broth for the salmon, but it wasn't. It tasted like tomatoes out of the can. There was no depth of flavor that you would expect when paying over $40. We decided not to have dessert, so that the kitchen could close, but wanted to close the meal with a cup of coffee. We were served barely lukewarm coffee. Neither of us could finish it. We left the restaurant at 9 pm, having spent over $200, trying to have the experience that we thought we came for. We would have liked to enjoy our evening by lingering over a glass of wine, a delicious meal, a cup of coffee. . . We didn't get to linger over any of it. Two hundred dollars is a lot of money for us and we were disappointed that we didn't get the experience we paid for. Next year we'll be going to Matts at the Market.

Thought Pigalle would be the perfect shellfish restaurant: in Pike Market, overlooking the water, intimate setting, etc... The bouillabaisse underwhelmed completely. The crab tasted frozen, the mussels dry, the soup base uninspired. What a disappointment!

This restaurant is a GEM! The staff treats you like family ( in the best way). The waiter was very knowledgeable about both the menu and every wine on the list picking us the perfect bottle to go with dinner! Appetizer, soup and entrees were all perfect and the perfect size! We were too full to try dessert but will definitely go back! 5 Star, 5 diamond in our book!

Have eaten 5 times at Place Pigalle and always ordered mussels for appetizer. This was first time they were poor quality; small and a bit runny. Pretty sure they were not fresh. All else was up to usual high standard. Soup of the day was hearty, hot, and very flavorful. Scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious. King salmon also very tasty. We split a yummy chocolate dessert, and had espresso. Lastly, our waiter, Guy, was superb. He's very personable and although busy, with a full house on a Thursday night, never seemed to be in a rush. Good dining experience overall. I love the Place Pigalle interior and vibe.

We have eaten at Place Pigalle about 5 times and although we enjoyed the food, it was tasty, we were discouraged to find the noise level so bad that we are not sure we will go back. We could not talk to each other without raising our voices near to a yelling point. The restaurant really needs to put in some sound absorbers.
