Fodor's Review

Open since 1995 in an old Victorian house, this nationally acclaimed bistro helmed by namesake chef-owner Vitaly Paley—who also operates downtown's newer Imperial restaurant—serves French cuisine prepared with organic, Pacific Northwest ingredients. Among the entrées are seared steelhead with veggies and olive chili relish and a grilled pork loin chop with cauliflower grits, bacon, and brussels sprouts. The cheese selection, on display under a glass case just inside the front door, is extensive and exquisite. Two plainly decorated dining rooms and a bar area make up the interior; in warmer months, you can sit on the front porch or back patio. Reservations are recommended.
