Delicious & savory food! The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. The food was expertly prepared and paired with the most appropriate beverage. It is a very small restaurant so be sure you've got a reservation.

Over all really excellent food and very good service. The wine parings are wonderful and very much worth the added cost on the tasting menu. That said, the tasting menu had some real misses for me, the foie profiterole was way over the top and trying just a bit too hard. Again, worth the price of admission. You'll likely try something you've never tasted.

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.

Foie gras profiterole. Yes. Every time I've been here has been amazing. There's a reason that this restaurant is consistently ranked as one of the best in town. The quality of the dishes is always outstanding. And the portion sizes are actually a bit bigger than you'd expect. Great place to bring out of town guests if you can get a spot. Sit at the bar! Watch the cooks work. Dinner and a show!

Amazing food and overall experience! The kitchen is open and on display for you to enjoy observing the meal preparation. The wine list is classic. This is definitely a very special place.

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.
