Have eaten here many times and brought home dinner many times. Never disappointed. Love the salmon panini, mushroom soup, pate, coffee! Great place

We went on a Saturday night, probably its busiest time. Nevertheless, only one waiter/sommelier was working, because the other bus boy/waiter was sort of sandbagging. Service was very slow.

I am in love with their lamb panini sandwich, but all their salads and meals are delicious too! I try to get there every week.

In an age of large, branded restaurant chains and any combination of culturally blended ‘fusion’ kitchens, it is getting harder to find 'true authenticity'. At Pascal, it is just that. The chef is French, the waiters are French, the food is French -with a Belgian...More

It's small, but very relaxing and the dinner was is amazing. Reservations a must, the weekends are very crowded. Hopefully, they will be able to expand to a larger location.
