Pre/post Theatre
Casual
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.

Really cosy restaurant- fabulous pretheartre menu with great choice range. Staff kind and helpful- enjoyed piano music and that the staff, with only a couple of minutes notice, produced a candle and decorated plate for a friends birthday while pianist played happy birthday. Really enjoyed meal and will definitely return

First time at this restaurant in London for me. Lovely ambience, especially after the table candles were lit. Lighting was lovely. Lovely warm glow in the whole restaurant. Quite French. Food was very nice and value for money too. Service also was quite good. Would definitely return if visiting London again. This was my friend’s second visit to the restaurant.

A very pleasant small bistro-style restaurant with good choice of dishes. Makes a pleasant change from larger ‘chain’ restaurants. Went out of their way to acknowledge my birthday.

Fantastic food as always. Very good value too. Delay with seating - previous booking didn’t leave table on time - so were bundled downstairs to wait ten minutes.

Food was well cooked and fairly generous portions. Service was efficient and polite but could have been a little friendlier. Wine was good. I would definitely recommend.

Came here second time as my first one was amazing. However, after this time I was a bit disappointed. My table had mean waiter who took a wrong order. Happens to everyone, but at least what he could do was to apologize and be nice... Two other witnesses who served us after were great tho. To replace the order it took them 20-25mins, so my dad was eating by himself while me and my mum were waiting for food to come.

Excellent food atmosphere and service! Been before and love it here! Not cheap but then I find you get what you pay for! - good staff Deserve good wage and so does a good chef ... and quality food has to be sourced. We luckily ate last night when a fab pianist was playing which was added bonus!
Will be back

One of my favorite restaurants in London! It's like eating in Paris. Candlelit. Piano player. Amazing french country style food. And with a 2 course 15.90 dinner special until 6:30, its the best deal in town!

This has been a favourite restaurant of ours for around 15 years. I took a work colleague here on this occasion promising the ‘best steak in London’. I’m delighted to say he concurred.

We were a lunch party of 10 and the restaurant eventually managed to respond to our requests after getting organized. I thought it strange that weren't that attentive when we arrived, since we had booked weeks ahead and we weren't that demanding. The food was great as it always has been whenever we've been, reasonably good value too.

Excellent bistro meal. As a pre-theatre supper, it was really good value. The confit duck with lentils was very tasty and the goats cheese salad was a decent size starter, also very good. Dessert was extra but the apple tart tatin was worth it. There were a couple of large noisy parties when we were seated which made conversation really difficult. The sound reverberated quite loudly, so not the most intimate of settings. The service was very good so we had plenty of time to get to the theatre.

A wonderful place to eat in the centre of London, and exceptional value. Friday night was a little bit noisy, and we could probably done without the pianist; but we still had a most enjoyable evening and will definitely be going again!
