"It's a great French restaurant...with a great ambiance. Went here for our anniversary and loved it owner came and congratulated us and even gave us round of drinks on the house. Food was delicious as well as the dessert."
"i remember my first visit to Le Pescadeux like it was yesterday, if yesterday was November 22, 2009. I also remember each subsequent visit, including ones in 2010, 2011, 2013, and most recently on December 14, 2014. But who among us remembers such things? Or should I say, who remembers such things without the aid of an instantly searchable spreadsheet of personal, family, social and work-related activities?
Not I, but enough about me. Le Pescadeux is as wonderful today as it was when I first entered the place in 2009. This time, my wife and I were to meet up with my wife's twin-brother and his wife to celebrate the birthdays of the twins. The twins, now 65, grew up in Montreal, as did Pescadeux owner Chuck Perley, who by the way is friendly, engaged in the restaurant's operations, a great story-teller, and, oh yes, and unlike me, naturally charming. My wife and I sat at the bar while we waited for the in-laws, enjoyed adult beverages, talked while we waited, checked out what patrons were eating, and soaked up the Pescadeux atmosphere.
The in-laws soon arrived, and we were seated at a slightly-elevated corner table that gave us a view of the whole place. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and alerted us to the evening's specials, and off we were. At our table I spotted a roasted beet salad, a pan-roasted salmon, smoked brisket, and a mussels-and-shrimp dish. I had the smoked brisket, which was delicious. We ordered a bottle of fine wine to accompany dinner. The owner, Chuck Perley, stopped by at our table, asked how all of us were doing, deduced from the conversation that we were at Le Pescadeux for a celebration -- perhaps from the banner I placed above and behind us – and at just the right time, brought out a dessert dish beneath a lighted candle to underscore the birthday celebration.
The whole thing was great. If I were to recommend this place more highly, I would need more than the 2000 character limit to"

"Was desperate to find a place for a nice,relaxing Sunday jazz brunch. Friend of mine posted on Facebook that he was performing there. Problem solved! Restaurant serves rustic Quebecois cuisine. I highly recommend the brisket omelet served with poutine! The bottomless Bloody Marys are a bargin at $18.00 considering they are $10.00 singularly. Looking forward to a return visit the next time I'm in NYC"

"It is hard to imagine a more warm and welcoming New York restaurant than Le Pescadeux. The host, Chuck Perley, is amazingly generous, warm and entertaining. The lighting is welcoming and the service is efficient. The menu is very creative, especially the fish duet offerings, and the food is simply delicious.
We always go to Le Pescadeux for "special" occasions with family or friends and have never been disappointed over many years of visits."
