Paris 66 Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Always like being in Paris and the best French food in Pittsburgh! Try the salmon carpaccio or the Champs du Mere salmon crepe - c'est magnifique! And always an excellent finish to a meal is the Mousse au Chocolate! Not to be missed for lunch, brunch, dinner or dessert.
Paris 66 is a favorite lunch spot as it is close to my workplace. Owners are wonderful. Provide great food and service with a French flair. Paris 66 is good for a weekday lunch because the service can be fast if desired.But have lingered for longer business lunches without feeling rushed. Quiche of the day is always excellent. Creme Brulée (sp) is excellent as well.
It was Valentine's dinner for us so the evening was special. Our waiter, Renuard, was exceptional - loved his French accent. The portions were abundant and the quality was excellent. We ate around 5 o'clock so it was quiet and the atmosphere was very romantic. Highly recommended.
My husband and I LOVE Paris 66!! There are so many awesome restaurants in Pittsburgh, and we love trying new restaurants, but we consider Paris 66 "our restaurant". The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming. It feels as though you're in a genuine Parisian cafe.
The food is always amazing! The escargot is so delicious and perfect for dipping. The foie gras is melt in your mouth. The duck is so flavorful and my usual go-to. I have never had rich, light mousse!! The quiche and French toast are my brunch favorites. Incould just go on and on about all of the delicious options!
I also have to mention how much I adore the wait staff. They recognize us and make us feel welcomed and extremely grateful for our business. It's always a pleasure and a delight to dine at Paris 66!
A very different experience. Never been to Paris but felt like I might be there when dinning here. Service was great and was nice to see the waitress present in French and English so you could experience a bit of foreign culture, yet understand what is being presented and at the same time learning how to translate a French menu. Food was great. Shared entrees with companion, found a bit much of a vinegar taste in sauces, otherwise it was superb. Price is a little high but I'll go back. A better value would bring me back a lot more often.
