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.

I had a fantastic lunch with my 3 friends this Saturday. The set menu is amazing value, and had several choices of starter and main course. All four of us thought the food was delicious, the service wonderful, and we can’t wait to return. We are just sorry that it has taken us so long to discover this brilliant gem.

Quiet location tucked away in Soho. Very friendly staff. When my fellow diner felt unwell and couldn’t eat much of his meal, they didn’t charge for it which we thought was excellent. Definitely recommend. Superb value for money on the set menu with a good choice of dishes and food very well presented.

As always very nice, but the service wasn’t great this time. It took quite long to get anyone’s attention and one particular waiter seemed a bit rude when we finally wanted to order drinks. The rest of the staff were helpful though

Always love the PV. Food, service, atmosphere. And love introducing people to it. Had a small grip about the quality of the lamb shank this time, which I mentioned to the waiter. It had a lot of gristle.

Overall a good experience, there was a problem with our main course, I think the order was misplaced, after about 25 mins the server acknowledged there was a problem and our food would not be long, my wife’s duck was a little chewy, I think this was down to them rushing our order through because of the delay. Apart from that everything was superb, staff ambiance etc. Deserts and coffee given free gratis due to our wait was a welcome surprise, we will definitely go back to Piere Victoire’s again.
PS very very good steak tartar 👍

Friendly and attentive service but the food does not do justice to the “French” heritage that the branding promises. Toulouse sausage was lacking the authentic flavour and any real hint of garlic, could have been bought from the Tesco next door and was served on a pillow of lukewarm sweet potato pureé – nothing French about that. Grilled Bavette steak was crazily overpriced at £16.50 when the actual piece of meat would have cost no more than £2.00 at trade prices, was under-seasoned and the mushroom sauce that covered the steak was thin and flavourless. Great frites, however. Grilled fish of the day was, in contrast, very well cooked and beautifully presented.

We've been dining here for about a century now, it never fails us! We went with family this time; they have now recommended it to their friends, who also loved it.

Lovely food, reasonably priced, excellent staff; what more could you want. Thinking of an excuse to go back soon...but who needs an excuse!
