Paris 66 Ratings and Reviews
I was staying 5 minutes away at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary for a spiritual formation immersion experience. My experience of dinner at Paris 66 was transcendent itself. My server, Brianna, was extremely patient and friendly and attentive. I was by myself, and was seated at a little corner table right next to the partially exposed kitchen. Oh, the smells! I was breathing in heaven and exhaling gratitude my entire stay. All the food was perfect, from the Diabolo beverage to the French onion soup (not heavy or salty), from the scallops (so tender) to the bannana and Nutella crepe for dessert (I don't, however, recommend the ice cream with it - the richness of the crepe far outshone the ice cream). A delightful experience from start to finish. I want to go back right now!
Making reservations was very easy with open table. Enjoyed my 25 th wedding anniversary. The food was very good. We ordered the cheese plate and frog legs as starters. Main meals were a scallop dish for me and my husand ordered duck in raspberry sauce. Crepes Versailles for dessert with an added treat of chocolate and caramel sauce spelled out for our 25 th wedding anniversary. Want to go back again soon.
Overall ok, however I used to cook a lot and have never made coq au vin with pasta. I like the original version. This did not have a lot of sauce, a bit dry
Also the portions of wine are very smalI
It's a nice place, however there are many choices around the area and am not in a hurry to go back.
Although the Pittsburgh food scene has continued to expand and grow over the last 10 years, Paris 66 remains our favorite go to spot for a romantic getaway, with incredible food and impeccable service.
Whenever my wife and I enjoy dinner there, we completely forget that we're even in Pittsburgh… or even the US for that sake.
We love Paris 66
It is hands down my favorite French restaurant ever--and I'm French! It is Pittsburgh best restaurant. The food is authentic and delicious, Renaud is a sommelier, which means that the wine will be good, and Marie-Lise is a sweetheart. The service is exceptional; and not only do I go back as often as I can, but I make a point of bringing in people or spreading the word.
Paris 66 is always wonderful. We usually do a late weekend lunch or an early dinner. Service is fantastic. Wine list for all pocket books. I had a beef filet and some of their perfect French fries. It is quiet and relaxing A special place to go even for an ordinary day.
Very low quality for excessively high price. Frogs' legs entree was tender, but over-garlicked and far too greasy. Canard a l'orange was evidently pre-braised, then crisped by roasting, resulting in a texture that was stringy and dry, in a sauce that was dominantly demi-glace rather than orange. Lapin sauce moutarde was bland, lacked snap in the sauce. The profiteroles dessert was massive, but the puffs did not taste fresh and the entire business was buried in a mound of whipped cream -- a cardiologist's delight.
If this is the "best French restaurant in Pittsburgh", it's the top of a few and very low-quality competitors. It would not last ten days in a small French town.
This is one of the few restaurants in Pittsburgh that satisfy my picky father's need for a quiet place to eat and talk. The food is amazing, and the portions are reasonably sized, so there's always room for dessert, which is equally amazing.
Seemed like a nice place and the food was indeed very good. A bit over-prized for my taste, though. Our initial waiter was a native French speaker (male) and seemed nice. He got switched out for a young waitress who pretended to be French. She was the one single reason this evening wasn't enjoyable. Very artificial persona, drove us nuts. And if she doesn't know the name of the wine we ordered she should not try to correct us. It was a vin rose named "vin mal" on the menu, not "vin d'orange" as she insisted it was.
