Restaurant Review


Pascal and Sabine is one of the top restaurants in Asbury Park and one of the top French restaurants in Monmouth County.


This is one of the four Asbury Park restaurants owned by the Smith group, who currently own the popular Porta, Goldie's, and Brickwall Tavern.


Pascal and Sabine is an upscale version of a French/European Brasserie where dining patrons come to enjoy quality, simply prepared food, and top end drinks in an atmosphere of elegance.


The kitchen at Pascal and Sabine is run by two Executive Chef's; Chef Grace Crossman is in charge of the breakfast and lunch menu while Paul Holzheimer is in charge of the dinner menu.


Grace Crossman, a native of Spring Lake Heights, developed her culinary skills in NYC before her stint at Porta's where she created the menu.


Paul Holzheimer, who studied at the French Culinary Institute in Paris, later worked at Sirena Restaurant in Long Branch and as executive chef at Porta.


The interior is eclectic and elegant with an ambiance that is apt to be found in NYC. There is seating for 80 in the dining room, 18 more at the main circular bar (with no TV's) and 20 additional seats in the lounge area, which features a round espresso bar and a salon menu.


The decor is rich in its use of colors, fabrics, wood, mirrored/exposed brick walls and soft lighting, There are cave-like banquettes, artwork of Paolo Ventura, and to enhance the feeling of being in Paris, there is French pop music playing in the background.


There is also a bakery bar with a back entrance for those seeking a fresh baguette to go. Fresh bread is baked on premises daily.


They serve an excellent Brunch on Saturday & Sunday.


Pascal and Sabine is open Monday - Thursday: 5:00 pm - 12:00 am; Friday: 5:00 pm - 2:00 am, Saturday: 8:00 am - 2:00 am & Sunday: 8:00 am - 12:00 am


Free valet parking is available on Friday and Saturdays..
