Tucked away down Dean Street amongst the hustle and the hipsters is the Pierre Victoire, one of Soho’s favourite dining institutions. This little haunt has been serving up rustic French cuisine to loyal regulars for over a decade, and this is still one of London’s favourite places for date nights and cosy pre-theatre meals. Part Provencal, part Art Nouveau, the dining room at Pierre Victoire is decorated with whitewashed walls, chalkboard menus, a vintage piano, eclectic artworks, untreated wooden floorboards and wine bottles stuffed with drippy candles, and the wholesome home-style cuisine and moreish wine is all delightfully affordable. With a steak-centric menu, Pierre Victoire also serves tasty omelettes, creative salads and plenty of seafood.

Found this place a few years ago and since then have visited 2 or 3 times every year when we have visited London, normally early evening or at lunchtime before going to the theatre as the pre theatre and lunch menu offer outstanding value, and there is a very large selection of quality items on the menu. When there you would think you were a million miles away from London, yet oxford street is just round the corner, and the theatre land only a little bit further away.

Really enjoyed dinner with a friend at Pierre Victoire's last Friday. The food is just lovely and very well priced given it's Soho location. Service is quick and friendly. Recommended.

Very good vibe in this restaurant and the food is reasonably priced for Soho. The servers were mostly polite and attentive and happy to explain the menu. There's a good choice on the menu and the set menu offers good value.

Unassuming and basic in terms of decor, Pierre Victoria excelled in food and service. The bread was even Frenchly good! We were short of time so had two starters - gravadlax salmon and baked brie, which both proved to be extremely good. I would definitely revisit, although the music was a little loud for a business meeting. Lots of luvvies obviously also enjoy eating here, so plenty of people watching possible.

Booked as pre-theatre set menu deal before seeing Bat out of hell at the Dominion. Restaurant is quaint and beautiful inside, friendly welcoming staff, lovely wine and the food was delicious, set pre-theatre menu was great, wide choice for both starter and main, the pulled chicken salad was gorgeous and the Onglet steak litterally melted in the mouth, dare i say... it was better than Gaucho's steak or Hawksmoor! and the price was amazing too.
highly recommend and will 100% be back! a little gem!
Tip: pre theatre menu finishes as 6.30pm!!

This was my first visit and have already made arrangements to return. Loved the restaurant set out, buzz, wine and just fabulous food. Got there for an 8pm booking and we’re more or else seated almost immediately- I had changed timings at the very last minute. Had an amazing birthday meal with my two daughters. Thank you ❤️

We have been going to Pierre Victoire for years - and it never disappoints. On this occasion we arrived 30 minutes late because of travel disruption at Waterloo - but our friends (who had never been there before) were not hassled at all. As ever, we had a lovely meal, and great beer/wine - and fantastic service.

We really enjoyed our meal. Excellent prompt service. A small point - I would have liked the broccoli to be more tender. It was too hard to cut. It was returned to the kitchen and a little bit better on return. Overall, a good meal with very good service. Great location.

Lovely place for dinner and the waitresses were all lovely. The only downside was, who we assume was the manager/maitre d, was clearly stressed and making it very obvious and making us feel slightly uneasy. The waitresses and the rest of the staff however were very calm and were working well. As it is a small restaurant it was unfortunately very noticeable. Other than that- fish very well cooked and octopus for starters was very tasty. Also been here for lunch and would go back again!

Food was really lovely, service was great. Portions were generous and prices are extremely good, especially for central London. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys French food but even if you don't there are still a few choices, I had the steak and fries and it was perfectly cooked and great quality.
My only negative is the ambience, online it was recommended as a romantic restaurant and the candle light and music would make it so but the noise level of chatting ruined that. I know loud customers are not the restaurants fault, I feel if the tables weren't so close together it would help but as the place was packed I can't blame them for having as many tables as they did!.

Booked a pre-theatre meal, the table was ready when we arrived 10 minutes early, which was good - two courses were excellent value. Moules Mariniere and hake with black risotto were very good, and also my wife enjoyed her selection of mushroom soup of the day and cheeseburger. Bottled French cider was good. Service was fast, but attentive, which is just what we wanted for pre-theatre dinner. Thanks.

The restaurant currently suffers from having a construction site right out side the door so it is low on kerb appeal just now. However step inside and the service you get from a friendly and helpful group of staff make up for it. The food was excellent, the lamb was very tasty and the sea bass was also good. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody with the proviso not to try and sit outside until the construction work is finished.

Pierre Victoire has rustic, modest charm and is wonderful value for money. The staff were relaxed and friendly, the food unpretentious and really flavoursome, and wine by the glass/carafe (i.e. at the lower end of the price-scale) was very decent too.
We had mussels to start (marinier, and also grilled with garlic and pernod which was delicious), for which our waiter suggested an accompanying glass of Picpoul de Pinet (perfect); duck breast nice and pink with a good helping of dauphinoise potatoes, bavette steak and fantastic frites, and a carafe of Argentianian Malbec which again was a successful pairing. We were too full for puddings, sadly, but I will defintely be going back to sample them!
