Always a pleasure. The steaks are cooked to perfection, the salads innovative, desserts amazing...the manager a sexy guy! (The tall one with a beard)
Amazing French Onion Soup!!!
By Krysi on 11/29/2004
The french onion soup here is absolutely wonderful! It is definitely the best that I have ever had. It is worth it to go here and just have a bowl of it.

It's amazing how hype words, like "star-studded" and "Paris-like" can draw a crowd. Out-of-town friends said this was a "must-go" restaurant--but they must equate noise with pleasure, because noise is the keyword to Pastis. We were very disappointed. On Sunday at 2:30P.M., it was so noisy it was impossible to speak to each other without actually shouting. We asked if there was a "garden" and were told there was--and the host proceeded to seat us at a tiny table on the sidewalk. The metal chairs were so wobbly, one actually had to "hold on" for fear of the chair falling apart. Seatings were extremely close, and the sidewalk tables listed very badly. A totally loud, unpleasant experience overall. I would not recommend Pastis to anyone.
Hipster Ground Zero

Be lucky enough to sit amongst all the pretty young things and what you'll experience is a pretty enjoyable Provencal feast supported by its inventive seasonal specials. You may have a hard time getting the attention from their daydreaming waitstaff, but all in all, they pull through and what you'll end up with is very good Provencal-style dining match with an even better people watching scene.
What A Treat!

Coming into the city, this was a must have and never, never disappointed!!! Something for everyone!

Pastis is perfect for the late night venture into a French bistro. The oysters are delectable but pricey, the wine list is simple but moderately priced. Take a date and sit in the back, it's like a small slice of Paris, until you get the bill and a parking ticket.

this place always has a wait, but for good reason, the food rocks and the place is alive. one of my top ten places to go.
Lengthy delay for a table
By MariaW on 11/12/2003
Although our table was booked for 8pm, we had to wait at the bar which was ok as we expected to be seated within 20mins and the restaurant was very busy. However, after 35mins had past, I asked the 2 staff who were seating guests, how much longer we would have to wait. I was told 5 mins, but we were not seated til over an hour had past and we had politely asked 3 times when we would be seated. A pity as the food, waiters and bar staff were all very good.
