“Romantic and Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

We had a lovely dinner. Our reservations were at 8pm on Saturday. Our table was promptly ready and our waiter was extra friendly and sweet. The booth was small and faced the restaurant. The room is a little loud but it added a bit of energy to the mood. We chose the Chefs Tasting and Wine pairing. We each ordered the opposite dishes so we could try everything. The Beet Salad was one of my favorites. I do not particularly like beets so this was unexpected. The pheasant was delicious and the cheese plate was very good. All in all it was a wonderful experience.

“Great neighborhood spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2012

I ate at Pigalle last night and sat at the bar. I think one of the great things about this place is that you can dine either high end in the dining room or take advantage of their pretty extensive bar menu. As someone who lives in the neighborhood, its great that you can drop by for a burger (excellent) and other high end bar items. Last night they had tasting menu "You Get What you Get" 4 courses of whatever the chef feels like making paired with wine for 40.00. I didn't get it, but it sounds interesting and will get it next time. I started with clams casino - some of the best I have had anywhere, served on a bed of rock salt.

The bar is great. Casual and the staff was terrific. Toby the bartender is a terrific personality to have behind the bar. Made us feel right at home as if we had been going there for years. Big TV to watch football.

I'm glad we stopped by and will definitely be back on a more regular basis.

“A perfect experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

This restaurant, with its welcoming intimate space provides imaginative and delicious food (try the tuna martini or duck confit and pate as a first course)' gracious expert service (menus, drinks, food, refills on water and wine glasses ) and a relaxed pace. We felt as though we were back in France...with that European sense of not being rushed to vacate the table;instead our three courses were consumed over a two hour period with enough time to savor each and then be ready for the next. We left with a great sense of satisfaction and well being. We will return.

“Mostly good stuff...but a few gaps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Three of us...all family went to Pigalle for a Saturday night dinner. We were seated promptly in a small booth (perfect for the three of us, but probably too small for four). Waiter was attentive, brought the sommelier by for some advice about wine, took our orders and the eating began.

Appetizer: List was interesting and extensive. Price range was: Salads...about $11, more involved apps went up to $18 with a couple higher. Kale Caesar salad was a delightful surprise.

Main Events: Highlight for one diner was risotto, another had fish and another really enjoyed the perfectly-cooked $24 burger. Some entrees were up close to $40.

Wine: Sommelier-suggested Bordeaux was wonderful: $85/bottle. Some wines were cheaper than this, however.

Shared dessert: Fallen-chocolate cake. Those who ate it liked it. Disappointment: no decaf cappuccino.

Overall, a good experience. Pigalle seemed a little crowded, noise level was high, but this was a busy Saturday night. Wait-staff was attentive and helpful.

Parking: Pigalle has validated parking in nearby Hotel Revere. Validated price: $10 (saves $8). No valet in sight, FWIW.
