Paris66  Reviews

This place has a great vibe. Friendly, cozy and authentic. The food was delicious, nice variety, well prepared but not trying too hard. I had perfectly roasted chicken with pommes frites and garlic aioli. My friends went with the equally delish salmon. Nice selection of French wine. We did not have dessert, but they are known for their macarons. - Carol P., Pittsburgh

I love this place! We ate dinner at a restaurant down the street from Paris 66 last night, after we left we wanted crepes and the other place we usually went to was closed. I was nervous to walk in a restaurant and ask if we could have a table to just get desert. I can't even explain in words how AMAIZING Paris 66 was for desert crepes. The food the women next to me we're eating also looked excellent. We will probably go back tonight and get dinner and desert. I also took a couple dozen of the macaroons home and they were so good! Wonderful light flavors. The waitress was so nice. Gave us a table very quickly although we were just getting desert and they were very busy. I'm so happy our usual place was closed and we got to try Paris66. - Lauren D, Winter Park

This is the best restaurant in town! I have been there a few times with my wife and family, and everyone is always happy with every single item we've had. Which is quite rare for a place to have so many items on the menu and all of them are of such great quality! It's on the pricey side, but it's definitely worth it to visit to treat yourself here. The crepes, scallops, quiches, steak, frites, potatoes, salads, baguettes and the tea/coffee are all amazing!! (we've tried all of those and more).

The staff really know their stuff to! We can ask them questions about the menu or even the tea they serve. The only complaint I have is that it can sometimes get cramped, but it's easy to forget the moment you smell your tea/food. - Phillip C., Pittsburgh

Seafood Bouillabaisse: It was phenomenal!!! Thanks to my man Darren for bringing me here for my late birthday and for buying me a box of their excellent macaroons to go. The fried artichokes were killer as well. Loved the service too. - Kay H., Beaver Falls

I went to Paris 66 for brunch with my wife and some friends, and it was really excellent. My brunch combination included eggs Provencal, pain au chocolat, and a crepe with whipped cream and a berry sauce -- very simple, but very well executed. My wife said that her buckwheat crepe was a bit too rich, but I'll let her write her own review if she wants to give Paris 66 fewer stars. Also notable are the macarons. Lots of different flavors and all of those I've tried (raspberry, pumpkin, caramel, and pistachio) have been between good and fantastic. Finally, the service was quite good: they were friendly, attentive, and indulged us when we were indecisive. - Chris L., Berkeley CA

Every time we've been here (many), we are pleased. Today was the first brunch. Varied dishes, all presented well, tasty and reasonably priced. Four for brunch for $55 including tip (no alcohol). Have been many times for a quick dinner, a slow dinner, a nice lunch. Go. - Bob B., Pittsburgh

Love, love, love this place! I lived for a year in Shadyside very close to this place and I went for brunch numerous times! I have had almost everything on the menu - the crepes are great, the eggs even better and the pastries are also good! I will admit I have only had brunch here and highly recommend it for brunch. Usually very good service, we never make reservations and are still seated within 15 minutes, typically way less. Enjoy! - Chuck B., Manhattan NY

I love crepes. I mean, LOVE CREPES. And I was so giddy when a friend suggested Paris 66 for lunch. I've only been eye-balling the joint since first moving to Pittsburgh a year ago (can you believe it's almost been?!).

The cute bistro was everything I hoped for: lovely decor, a complete French-inspired menu of food and drink (hello, need to come back on a NON lunch visit for the brunch cocktails list) and wonderful, friendly service. And then I fell in love with those incredible buckwheat crepes. Oh heavens, that Paris 66 crepe is the most amazing thing on a plate -- and likely, the largest crepe I've ever eaten (in full... ahem). Soft, dippy, hearty, flavorful. Total nom-tastique! (end French accent).

Side note: you HAVE to go home with a half dozen or so of their macarons -- DELICIOUS! - Mel U, Pittsburgh

Delicious, romantic, amazing! Friendly, warm staff, diverse crowd.......and the savory crapes are to die for. SUCH a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. If I could give more than 5 stars, I totally would!!!! - Melissa, Pittsburgh

Paris 66 is a nice alternative in a town which has had a shortage of crêperies. They have a nice variety of both savory and sweet crêpes, along with many other choices including sandwiches, soups, and salads. I enjoyed my carrot soup, and my co-diners' sandwiches and salads all looked great. The prices are reasonable, ranging from $4 for simple sweet crêpes, up to around $9 for some of the more elaborate savory creations.

I liked the atmosphere much more than the somewhat hectic vibe of Crêpes Parisienne. It does get crowded, so time your visit appropriately.

The crêpes themselves are made with buckwheat flour. I happen to love buckwheat, but if you're not a fan I could see this being an issue.

There's outdoor seating available out back. - Peter B., Pittsburgh

I have been to Paris 66 several times and each time they have delivered high quality, yet affordable French cuisine. On my most recent visit, I ordered the Paris 66 buckwheat crepes (that are filled with ham and cheese, topped with an egg and small portions of a salad, stewed tomatoes, and sauteed mushrooms). The flavors are rich and fresh, yet blend together perfectly.

The service was quite good; the servers were attentive, professional and friendly. And the restaurant itself has such a charming interior and a nice patio for outdoor seating (with heat lamps for when you go in the winter!) - Lisa J, Pittsburgh

Great Sunday brunch that's different from the ordinary. Check out our photos to see some of the dishes. I wasn't sure whether to go sweet or savory, but the savory was a good choice. I was able to try some other dishes at the table that were sweet and that wouldn't have been bad choice either.

I am not familiar with French cuisine, but this makes me want to explore more. Some of the staff was speaking French, which added to the authenticity. It was a good way to start the day before we say Cirque du Soleil in the Strip Distruct.

We sat closer to the front, but the back patio area looked cute. We had called ahead for reservations, but it wasn't crowded. - Mark K, Durham NC

We had a small casual business dinner at Paris66 last evening. It was just the way it is supposed to be, good simple french food, well served and without pretension. The servings were a reasonable size (not a bite on a plate), The waiter was courteous and attentive. Really enjoyed ourselves. The cheese and charcuterie plate was a perfect appetizer for sharing as a group, and served with lovely fresh bread. Similarly the steak frites were of the right size and perfectly prepared All very good... no complaints, will definitely be back
