Stumbled into Pierrot Bistrot Francais after a rainy walk along Cambridge street looking for a port in the storm. We were pleased to see so many people still enjoying lunch. Soup was good, bread and butter so tasty and fresh. We both ordered the quiche of the day which was Lorraine. Classic, and perfectly prepared. Nice and hot from the oven. It arrived with a great salad. Wine was extremely potable at $7.50 per glass. Check was reasonable. We vowed to come back again and strafe through some more of the menu. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Desserts looked tempting.

I had dined at Pierrot in May with friends and we had an exceptional dining experience. The food was fresh, beautifully prepared and presented. Based on that, I have been recommending it to friends on Beacon Hill. I returned for a celebration last evening and was disappointed. The owner was strongly pushing the specials, none of which appealed to us. We ordered the pre fixe menu. The result: Rubbery chicken breast, a curdled/bitter sauce on reheated seafood in the seafood crepes, and microwaved tubed vegetable garnishes. The house pate was excellent, as were the salads. The chocolate mousse was also good, but badly garnished with tasteless, leathery dried fruit. The service was good. The disappointment came with the poor quality of the main courses. Consistency is the hallmark of a good kitchen. In general, I found the staff's attitude less upbeat than the previous time I had dined there.

Food was not far from what we expected, the owner was constantly comming to our table trying to ' convince' us to get his special dish(like he he had 3 dishes left that were going stale...) and than yelled at the waitress to sell the special... Bottom line...not recomended.

Get your palette ready.... and be sure to listen carefully to the specials -- you'll not be disappointed, I've eaten here now at least 40 times with various friends, colleagues and clients and its been a wonderfully memorable experience for that variety of people. You'll catch the Beacon Hill crowd, leaders in medicine and staff from various MGH departments as well as French speakers eating there at lunch. And you know if the Boston crowd are eating there - there is terrific value. And there is. You could go Boston 'downtown' or trendy restaurants and pay at least double what Pierre charges. The staff are fabulous -- love their food -- know their food and their wine --- and are relaxed, like what they do with a sense of humor --Walter and Sami - who are what 5 star restaurants know they used to have -- and the rest... excellent. Pierre and Sam [in the web page pic] have done a terrific job - sticking to the basics. My husband who is tough on 'ambience and service' thought it was the perfect complement to the night -- a U2 concert... That's a high rating! Please go and enjoy. Its not in those trendy name brand chef restaurants but is so much better in so many ways. Low key surroundings, gerat music in the background, and the basics done in the finest way. Have fun.

Absolutely incredible and then some. Some of the best food in Boston, hands down. Incredible menu and service at very reasonable prices. Excellent service, romatinc, cozy, warm and relaxing. Authentic Parisian atmosphere, complete with ambient French music permeating the dining room. Highly recommended for any occasion, especially that first date. Just make sure your date is open to unusual cuisine. Must try the fois gras and the beef tar-tar, escargot is to die for!
