We visited Le Pigeon in Sept once the tourists had left and you can get a seat without waiting for ever. The seating is communal as is common in a lot of PDX restaurants.
While the menu is limited, there are a lot of innovative dishes to try. We passed on the Chef's Tasting menu as we knew what we really wanted to try. For the apps, we had the Foie Gras and the brazed short ribs - Perfecto. For the main, we had the rabbit and the lamb - both were done perfectly and the sides were well matched.
The service was attentive, the servers explained the menu well (willing to take the time and answer your questions). We also asked the waiter to simply select the wine pairing for each course individually, which he did and the rests were excellent.
For dessert, the Foie Gras Profiteroles were awesome as was the Crème Brûlée.
Definitely will be going back here on a monthly or quarterly basis when in the mood for French Cuisine with a PDX twist.
