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.

Nice food, sensibly priced (we went for pre theatre so great deal) no rush, service attentive and very friendly. Lovely unique restaurant and away from usual chains. Piano player was on, so added to the mood and not too loud so we could still have a conversation. Will keep returning :)

This restaurant in middle of London, just off Oxford Street is as good a restaurant for good quality food and extremely good value as you can get. The choices are numerous and varied, however due to the value, Steaks are additional cost to the set menu which is approx 15 pound for 3 courses. This is a brasserie venue and not a posh restaurant, however it is very popular and I suggest booking to confirm a table will be waiting.

Service was ok - although staff seemed annoyed that we didn’t order alcohol or starters and seemed to try just make us order to spend more money. Waiter lit other candles from our candle in the middle of our meal, three times, and leant across the table in between us interrupting our conversation. A waitress delivering food to other tables was very rushed and loud and seemed very angry. Food was ok - very small portions and very plain given it was a main meal. Had to ask for bill twice. Very loud restaurant and could barely hear each other talking.

Catching up with a friend and we were very happy with the service and the food was ever so tasty. What surprised us the most was there was a pianist playing - not expecting that at all :-) We clapped....a lot!! Will be back real soon.

Pierre Victoire consistently reminds me of why I always love crossing the Channel. It's a wonderful little bit of France in my home city.....Parfait

Went for lunch after the British Museum on a day out in London. What a gem, just off Oxford St near Tottenham Court Rd. Just like a small French Bistro in say the Marais. Great value.

Buzzy, cozy French bistro restaurant on the edge of Soho. Not a place for quiet conversation. Good service, friendly staff. Good value for money. Food was a touch uneven, but we would definitely go again. (Get the duck livers!) Has a special pre-theatre menu.

No point in making a booking as no table was reserved for us. They had our booking, but just hadn't set aside a table. The table we were offered was downstairs (no windows and adjacent to the kitchen) and... unbelievably... part way across the door to the toilets. Probably the worst table we have ever been given anywhere! Naturally we asked to be moved elsewhere and were given a table upstairs.
Food varied between good and very good.

The food was pretty good (although it arrived very slowly!) but we ordered sea trout with celeriac mash and received hake (which we were forewarned about ) with potato mash (which we were not). Wine was good, as were duck and sea bass.

Very good quality food and good sized portions and great service with nice atmosphere. Plenty of choices on the menu. However, disappointed that the 3 of us were seated at a table at the back of the restaurant squashed up against the wall, even though I had requested a table in the window if possible. The table wasn't even made up for us when we arrived. Obviously it is a particularly busy time of year. Will still return another time and recommend to others.

Really delicious food and a nice candlelit romantic restaurant. Would recommend for a date night. We were originally sat downstairs, but preferred the atmosphere upstairs, so they changed our seats. Also, they were quick to bring out the food, but we just took our time and it was great that they didn't rush us.

Pierre Victoire was a short stroll from our theatre. The table was booked for 5.30pm, perfect for our post matinee meal. On arrival we were shown straight to our table (booked in advance) and given the menus. We were able to chose from the 2-course set menu at £15.95, which is served until 6.30pm.
We were very impressed with the menu selection, covering a wide variety of tastes, including vegan.
The food arrived promptly, and was plentiful and very tasty.
We chose the house white wine which was great value and very drinkable.
The service was was unhurried, and the staff attentive. All in all a great dining experience in a very warm and relaxed atmosphere. Great ambience and easy background music at the right volume! We shall definitely be returning on our next visit to London.

Because this restaurant is very popular we booked early with OpenTable. The menu has a great variety and we ordered three courses from it. The service was excellent and friendly and our chosen meals were tasty and cooked perfectly. Booking with Open Table is easy and efficient.

This has become one of my fav restaurants in town. Always consistently good. My only complaint is that I once had the most to die for starter EVER and it was never on the menu again. Just for the record, it was polenta with creamed mushrooms in tarragon ( I think) it was the first time it was served, never to be seen again. I'll be back in February and just maybe it'll make a return 😊

It was nice.

Not the greatest but ever so nice and would I kill a goat in order to get there? Probably not.

But a mosquito? Almost certainly.

We ordered the duck it was dry and tough, it was clearly wasn't done from fresh and the chips were so dry we left most of the food. When asked about the food, I told the waiter that the food was so poor they didn't take it off the bill but said he'll let the chef know. I wouldn't recommend this place at all!
