Paris 66 Ratings and Reviews

It had been a fee years since my husband and I had eaten at Paris 66. This time we were seated inside, which I prefer. The preparations for the food have become more complex, with richer flavors and more stylish presentations. The "bistro" is trending toward upscale. Service for our party of five was efficient for our first hour, but slowed somewhat during our second hour as more diners began to fill the space, and added almost thirty minutes to our wait for our check. I'm sure we will be back, ready for another nice dining experience.

I love the ambiance at Paris 66. The lunch menu had a variety of options. I ordered soup and quiche of the day; both were creamy and flavorful. My only regret is that I didn't have room for the crème brûlée which I know (from past visits) is awesome. I will make another trip here soon just to have dessert.

As great as any meal we have ever had in France. Wonderful service, fresh and delicious courses. The crepe with flaming Grand Marnier and whipped cream for the finish topped it all off.
We can not wait to return.
And this was just lunch!!
Ou la la.

Paris 66 remains of my favorite dining spots in the city. The ambiance is cozy and food is authentic - the restaurant is run and owned by French. I have been always pleased with choices of meals and drinks: mussels, escargot, and crispy duck leg are definitely a hit. Cocktail are eclectic and well thought out. However, I found fish dishes consistently underwhelming. Last visit - my friend ordered sea bass, and it was disappointing. The dish lacked taste and its texture was off... We were offered a replacement meal but graciously declined - as we were already full after eating appetizers and sharing couple of small plates.
Desserts are not to be missed! Try pear tart with espresso. Its heavenly!

Waiter was very helpful and welcoming from when we first entered.
The meat and cheese tray appetizer was very good and would have good for three (there was only my wife and I).
We both had the Fillet minion and it was melt in your mouth.
The waiter recommended the wine choices and spot on.
Will definitely come back again

We are out-of-towners who heard about this restaurant through word of mouth. We've been here twice for brunch when visiting Pittsburgh, and both times our meals were superb. The dessert crepes are fabulous, and the quiches (this time, I ordered the special of the day, which had goat cheese) are sublime -- light and perfectly seasoned. If possible, try to get a table on the lovely patio. We were unable to sit there on this trip due to a special event. The indoor seating is fine and quite intimate, but not as special. Our French server was charming and friendly.

The food at Paris 66 is delicious!
I had the shrimp linguine in a white wine sauce, tried my brothers duck a la orange and my girls friends mussels in a rouquefort sauce. All were amazing. Escargot and foie gras for appetizers both very good.
Wine is a bit pricey but good French Sauvignons.
Will definitely return again.

I took my wife to Paris 66 to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. The restaurant is quaint with an authentic French feel. In fact, our waiter was French, as was his wife! The service and food were outstanding. Highly recommend the salmon and/or the T-bone steak.

The perfect spot for an intimate date in the city of Pittsburgh. Impeccable service, authentic French cuisine, and great ambiance for a quiet evening to remember. Our server was very familiar with the wine list and recommended a great pairing. The filet was cooked a perfect medium rare (as requested). Highly recommended for date night or a high-end food fix.

Absolutely divine! The atmosphere likens a dining experience in Paris. I enjoyed the entire evening. Must say, I found it to be pricey, but then as it is said......." It was priceless".
I will return with my family for special events and of course for a casual night out with friends/

Our server made the meal. She was congenial, made great suggestions and her timing was perfect. The place is intimate - reminiscent of Paris or a great neighborhood NYC cafe. The foie gras left us wanting more. The cheese selection was excellent and the creme brulee was a standout. The food is very traditional French bistro fare. Try not to sit right beside the kitchen.

Fantastic service and excellent food! We went two days in a row (during Pittsburgh restaurant week), and the staff remembered us and even remembered what we ordered the first night when giving us recommendations on the second day.

Service is always very special, as the servers are very knowledgeable and have a French background. Truly authentic. Food and wine are very good, but get your server's input to pick just the special items for you. Feel comfortable lingering, as it is such a comfortable environment.

My husband and I dined at Paris 66 to celebrate our first anniversary, and we loved it! I had a salad and shrimp with linguini and he had the filet. Both meals were excellent; his beer and my wine were also very good. The waitress was pleasant and everything was served in a timely manner. We also loved the bread that came with our meals. I would absolutely dine here again and recommend it to friends!
