menu  

We were not offered the tasting menu because per the waiter our reservations were too early (5:30) and they don't offer the tasting until 8PM (as he offered it to the next table at 6PM)...

meal  

Only the salad left a bit to be desired, although, to be fair, this is strictly in comparison to the rest of the meal: compared to the universe of restaurant salads, the salad at Picholine is better than average...

    All the dishes here are served and presented pretty well! This is one of the most restaurant I love. They serve not just delicious but fresh dishes. It was my friends birthday and she decided that the four of us circle friends to eat there. That was really a nice treat! Fantastic!

    If you like to put your money where your mouth is, then Picholine is the place to go. Extraordinary cuisine in the Lincoln Square area that caters to the hotshot locals that go to the opera or shop there. Easy to get to by the 1 train. Service is impeccable. Avoid dinner menu unless you like to spend $100 for your meal. Prix-Fixe lunch is the way to go, as it brings your bill slightly under $60. Enjoy the best French food on the West side!
