Pied à Terre is one of London’s longest standing Michelin restaurants offering a selection of fine dining menus including vegetarian and vegan and a wonderful private dining room.

With its tasteful cracked-glass feature, and cosily formal decor, this is a perfect setting for têtes-à-têtes, business-related or otherwise. Pied à Terre radiates both style and approachability.

The exceptional gourmet food is meticulously prepared with heart and passion by Head Chef Asimakis Chaniotis using ingredients sourced directly from small, independent suppliers who live and breathe quality.

Apart from the bargain set lunch (reportedly one of the best value Michelin star lunches in London), prices are reassuringly top-end, but there’s ample value in a book-sized wine list, with “incredibly helpful” sommeliers.

The intimate Hideaway Bar has recently been voted one of the ‘top 10’ wine bars in the Capital. Highly recommended and worth every penny!

Food was very disappointing, especially for a restaurant that has a Michelin star. With the exception of the amuse bouche and the John Dory, there was an obvious absence of seasoning. The cuttlefish dish was a sloppy mess, with unseasoned tomatoes and over cooked fish awash in a messy lake of underseasoned sauce.
The sommelier was charming and informative. The waitstaff appeared disinterested.
Would not recommend.
The lamp over the table was dirty, the rug had been “mended” with duct tape.
All in all, a sub-par dining experience that did not warrant the expense.

This was our third time here, we brought two friends who were most impressed with the food, service and ambience. We each had the lunchtime menu complet, each course was exquisite and included excellent wine chosen for us by the sommelier. This was good value. Yet again this was a great experience.

Very very disappointed.
We went for the 10 course tasting menu (1 meat and 1 vegetarian).
All the dishes were so so salty that we did not enjoy our meal at all and were just looking forward to dessert the whole time.
We requested for the salt to be reduced half way through the meal but it did not change that much.

We were celebrating my friends 30th birthday.
1) We had to leave within 2.5hrs of arriving and I had called up the restaurant beforehand to make them aware of this. I reminded them again of this subtly during the visit, I spoke to them on the sly so my friend would not know we had another activity planned. A waiter came to the table and specifically told us that it would be possible to do the meal within 2hrs infront of my friend - this totally ruined the next surprise and defeated the point of speaking subtly to them.
2) When the dessert plate was brought out with the birthday message, it was done in such an underwhelming way.

Overall it was a very average and ok experience. We did not fell like it was a Michelin star experience at all.

The food and wine on the tasting menus were very good indeed, and the bill certainly reflected this. Our only complaint was that one of the sommeliers, in his attempt to educate us about the wine, asked us where we thought each wine came from and his responses, when we were incorrect, felt patronising

We had the tasting menu and it was a truly fantastic experience. Each course was innovative and delicious and left us curious as to what was coming next. The staff were unfailingly polite and professional and created a comfortable atmosphere, while still making us feel incredibly special. It was my partners birthday, and I had specified that in the booking, so the kitchen wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on his dessert plate. Just another wonderful touch.

Many thanks to all!

We truly enjoyed our experience. Had the surprise tasting menu with wine parings. One member of our party has a nut allergy and the kitchen was more than happy to accommodate. Food was delicious and creative. Wine parings were unique, interesting and paired perfectly with every course. The sommelier was fun and very willing to share his knowledge. Service was excellent w/o being obsequious. The owner was so very nice and welcoming. Would highly recommend this hidden gem!

Food was so salty i felt dizzy and sick afterwards. Nothing special if you want to go for a vegan tasting menu best go to Fera or Gauthier instead. Atmosphere was ok service was pretentious and poor. Price wasn’t too bad but the fact that service was bad and food made me sick i would rather go to Wagamama.

An exceptional evening. We dined at L'Autre Pied a number of years ago and having been talking about it ever since. As such we were most excited to visit Pied a Terre. We were disappointed. Superb food and the wine was outstanding, Tom Baxter the Sommelier was entertaining, knowledgeable and provided an evening of discovery with his excellent choices. Would highly recommend.

Loved the deco, the way tables are set, with a lot of privacy. The service was attentive and non intrusive. Good recommendations from the sommelier.
My friends really enjoyed their food. For me this was a minus as there was only one vegetarian option for starter and main course. And I didn’t quite enjoy them... This reflected in poor value for me.

We returned here for our 1 yr anniversary. We are complete devotees of the restaurant. The service is impeccable and the quality all around shows true dedication and tenderness. We have recommended the restaurant to everyone since we first ate there on our wedding day and we have bought tasting menu gift cards for many people. We shall be back for our next anniversary if not sooner.

Wonderful boutique restaurant, an oasis of calm and charm in the middle of busy Charlotte Street. The food was outstanding - beautiful to look at, full of interesting flavours, and good portions. The service was discreetly attentive rather than over-solicitous, the decor sumptuously tasteful, and the ambient sound just right to enjoy an intimate evening for two. Expensive but very special, we had a perfect celebratory evening. Highly recommended.

The food was absolutely excellent and so was the wine....great ambiance and friendly staff. The timing of the service was a little off for a restaurant of this calibre though. It took a long time to get the wine list when we were asked if wanted a drink upon being seated. We finally ordered the wine, and it took a very long time to come and be poured, and we wanted to have it before the complimentary little starters arrived or have the wine with them. But the bread and little starters came before the wine did!

We arrived earlier than our booking, and we were seated immediately. The staff was very friendly and helped us with our coats upon departure and even spoke and replied in French. Very nice experience, but we would have wished the wine had arrived earlier and that there was more variety of main dishes for the a la carte menu. People next to us who had the tasting menu said it was very good, but they were very full. With three courses a la carte, it was just perfect, but there were only 4 choices for mains, whereas there were a lot of choices for starters and desserts, so the menu could have been more balanced.

But overall a lovely Valentine's experience.

Food was excellent but the couple at the table next to us brought their three year old daughter who was squealing and shuffling around all night - difficult to enjoy the atmosphere with a shouting child next to you. Food was fantastic, nice to finally see a well curated vegan menu.

Valentine's Day dinner in the private room. Three other couples sat on the other corners of the large table, worked surprisingly well. The set menu was varied and rich with contrasting flavours, and took the pressure off ordering, meaning we could concentrate on each other. Service was excellent, friendly but sophisticated. A lovely all-round experience.

Excellent. Diners are all made to feel special. The lunch menus have to be the best value for a Michelin starred restaurant in London. Needless to say the food was exceptional and well paired wines. Amouse bouche, petit fours and coffee all for £60 per person.

All I can say is: beat that!

My second visit within 10 days...having been extremely satisfied on the first visit when we had the lunch menu deal (£60 - 3 courses + half bottle of wine+ mineral water+ coffee)....this time there were 4 of us and we decided to go for the a La Carte....it was disappointing, the main course Halibut (which 3 out of the 4 had) with spinach was luke warm and not very appetising. The restaurant was much busier the second time around and that may have had an impact. Having been many times to Pied A Terre (and l'Autre Pied when it was open)...I have always found the food imaginative and consistently excellent in the past....this I am sure was a blip!?
