This remarkable restaurant is easily missed as one is walking by. Once through the doorway, one is transported into a Parisian bistro. The service was prompt, charming, and efficient. The choices (outside of a limited 'children's menu) were ample and the food is definitely superb. Background music supported the bistro feel and was at a volume that was conducive to... More

La Cigale is a French bistro of the best kind. the escargot was delicious and the crusty bread for dipping was just as good. The red snapper over vegetables was a good portion and the veggies were perfectly al dente. The scallops encrusted in a flaky shell were also nicely prepared. Very nice and affordable wines.

Moules Frites to die for, followed by profiteroles. Excellent service, great atmosphere and music Don't waste your money on the expensive, pretentious "French" restaurant just up the road, this is the real deal.

I decide to venture out and try this cute little French bistro I passed the night before, little did I know that it would be so AMAZING! I started with the French onion soup, main course was chicken cordon bleu and finished off with the dessert assortment. Best French onion soup of my life and the cream sauce for the... More

Best french food I've ever had. The french onion soup is magic. The beef stew is out of this world. This is not fancy french food, and everything is simple, intimate and elegant. Please go visit La Cigale when you are at PV. You won't be disappointed.

Everything French except no one speaks it. Small intimate bistro style with excellent food. Soupe a l'onion is great and made like at L;Halles en Paris.

Beautiful little restaurant tucked away on a quiet street. We have been several times and the food is always excellent. Love the small bar area too. A great romantic meal awaits you. Don't hesitate to visit.

This modest but outstanding addition to PV dining has the ambience of a small French-style bistro, with a nice menu and efficient service. The escargo and filet were outstanding, the pasta very good. One block from Cathedral, great food without pretension. Will go on my must visit list.
