I've eaten at Le Pig about a dozen times over the last 5 years. It's been my standby for celebrating a special occasion since the first visit and that's saying quite a lot in city with so many great options. Gabe always has inspired versions of classic dishes that are well executed. Nearly everytime we eat here, I'm haunted by one dish or another. I'll always order the sweet breads, pigeon or any part of the duck when they've got it. The wine list is top notch and their staff are very helpful if you need any help sorting through the menu. Make a reservation, order the duck and forget about your diet for the night.

Le Pigeon is a bit of a cramped place as you'll end up sharing a table with others I'm sure. But the food makes it worth it and it's a pretty friendly place. We got the tasting menu with a wine pairing and it was pretty well done. They enhanced the food for sure. The food itself, yum. really well cooked despite a cramped kitchen. Clean flavors, fairly creative, and consistently great dishes. It did miss some sort of wow factor dish for me though.

LePigeon is a foie gras lovers heaven! With the band on foie gras in California, my husband and I always order foie gras if we see it on a menu. LePigeon had an awesome monte cristo sandwich and the most creative foie gras dish that we ever had - foie gras profiteroles. The restaurant is rather small, so make your reservations early.

I love open kitchens because you get a free show. If you can, try to get a seat at the bar! I guarantee that Gabe Rucker’s crew will put on a fantastic show for you. I ordered the five course chef’s tasting menu and everything was delightful except dessert. The first dish was Nantucket Bay scallop ceviche with a sweet and smooth papaya habanero sorbet, a cucumber, tomatillo, and papaya salad, and trout roe. The scallops were tender, sweet, and the zesty marinate enhanced everything sublime about these delicious morsels. The sorbet gave this dish an incredible lightness and the salad was refreshing and sweet. It was like spring in my mouth and it made me want to weep for joy. I also had the grilled mackerel that came with their version of a Caesar salad; sea bass on a bed of chickpeas and spatzle; grilled venison with bone marrow pumpkin pie, ginger onion chutney, and brussel slaw. All were delicious and recommended, but the scallops are a must. I was served two desserts, and only one of them is worth mentioning – the foie gras profiterole. The puff was hard and the foie gras ice cream was icy. But it was interesting because there was foie gras in the caramel sauce and powder sugar. Give dessert a whirl, but it’s not top notch.

The best meal I've ever had hands down. I dream about their Beef Cheek Bourguignon - it was orgasmically delicious. If I had the money I'd eat their every night. Also, the service was amazing. The waiter was very helpful and paired our meal with a fantastic wine. I'd recommend this place for any occasion.

5 stars is not enough!!!! I did my research, made the reservations a month in advance, and I was thinking about my meal here everyday for a month.I'm a Chef at a private club in Milwaukee and I've eaten many many great meals in my day. And words cannot describe how fantastic our experience was. I wish I had the passion and love for food these guys obviously do. The service was also impeccable. We were there for the 5 course tasting menu and got a visit from the servers at least 30 times. Worth every penny and then some. I cant wait to visit le Pigeon again.
