    Restaurant is tiny but charming (expands to outdoor space in Spring/Summer) Tables are squeezed together (more challenging with bulky winter clothing). Servers are lovely and accommodating. Sadly, espresso machine was not working so we missed our cappuccino. Light brunch options were very good.

    Always superb! My favorite neighborhood bistro for excellent food, warm ambience & attentive service. You really do feel like u’re at a left bank Parisian cafe along a side street just off the Boulevard St. Germaine.

    We've enjoyed Pascalou twice now, and have not been disappointed either time. They prepare escargot in such a way that is a bit lighter and ample for a "share". The service is warm and accommodating, noise level does not interfere with conversation and we thoroughly intend on returning. A great spot for the UES.

    Excellent as always. Good to be able to specify a particular table, and it's always been granted. Prix fixe always good, and proper french bread and decent butter. On a snowy night when we had the upstairs to ourselves they gave me both desserts du jour, which was a lovely gesture and saved me choosing. great place, lovely people running it.

    We ate dinner on a Monday night . We were seated upstairs so it was quiet up there. The restaurant is very small and the tables are quite close together. The food was very good with good sized portions. The waitress was nice but I think the service downstairs is a little better since the wait staff does not have to climb those stairs up and down. I still recommend it.

    Friend and I had lunch last week at Pescalou. Her first time there, my second. Feeling of stepping into a neighborhood bistro in Paris, Left Bank. Food excellent; menu has large number of choices for lunch. Everything tasted fresh, was plentiful and looked appetizing. And not pricey! Waitress very accommodating, lovely person. We’ll be back!

    The food and service were quite good. I was disappointed that the dish I wanted (short ribs) which is a standard menu item there was not available that night. I ordered a lamb Tagine instead. It was good, but I would have liked it to have more pieces of lamb in it. The appetizers were delicious, and they were very accommodating. I will rant.certainly return to this restaurant

    Authentic Parisian bistro in NY ! I am French-American and have been living in Paris for over forty years and I felt ‘chez moi’, at home. Lunch prix-five is a great deal with a wonderful selection. Dishes are well served and everything was delicious. Cozy atmosphere which some might find cramped but I enjoyed. Service was very friendly. Worth the visit !

    Tiny place. Brace yourself for the chilly air whenever the front door opens. But the hostess’s smile - or rather the lack of it - is even chillier. When we made our reservation we asked for a specific table, followed up our request with a phone call, but our request was disregarded. The food was good, but not sure it offset the dimension of the place and the coldness of the hostess.
