Hadn’t been to Pichet in quite some time. Revamped restaurant now includes a cocktail bar area. Ambience was great as usual. Staff superb. Service could not be faulted. Food was disappointing and overpriced. Average starter, very average main course, great dessert. Felt that where Pichet had previously been a great dining experience for super value, it’s now very overpriced. Perhaps lunch still represents value. And maybe change is necessary to survive. One bottle of wine and two glasses of Prosecco. Bill for 3 came to €250. I thought that was too much for the standard of food presented. Disappointed 😞

Great food, a little disappointed that there was no mention the mussels were spicy but I was lucky enough to be able to swap with my partner. Apart from that everything was top notch!

We had an excellent evening in Pichet, the service was amazing & the food was top notch. We had an American client with us who loved it & said it was the best night of her trip. Thank you for letting us keep our table for so long!

This isn't our first time at Pichet. Booking a table is made easy with opentable. As soon as you walk through the door a welcome is guaranteed. Before dinner try one of the delicious cocktails on offer or ask them to make one for you. The menu is outstanding and never fails to deliver on taste. In our company was newbies to this delightful restaurant we'd talked the place up so much the expectations where high. The steak tartare was an explosion of taste in your mouth only washed away with the exquisite offering of wine that's catered for. The seabream melted on the tongue for the main enough on food to satisfy any hunger. Alas didn't have any dessert but instead had oysters the freshest I've ever slip into my mouth and one cheese board shared between four. The only fault was in the cheese board if only something a little closer to home in tastes to satisfy the pallet. Overall amazing food and the friendliest of staff again couldn't fault it until next time.

went for pre-theatre menu- which is excellent value! the food was very good, particularly the starters which we enjoyed very much... service was excellent, ambience spoiled somewhat by an unfortunate incident in the kitchen which had smoke flooding through the restaurant which was a tad off putting & generally changed the mood around the restaurant... i’m a fan of pichet, i would recommend esp. for the early bird...

Felt somewhat rushed as having early bird. We were told immediately after we were seated that it was a 2 hour window. We had 3 courses thrown up at us within 55 mins. There was no fear we would be there for 2 hours.

Unfortunately for the restaurant the kitchen air venting failed so restaurant very smoky and ventilation poor and hot. Unfortunate on the night

I ordered the farmyard chicken and was expecting something pedestrian and was absolutely wowed when I was served with the most succulent chicken breast I have ever eaten. I could not get over how moist the chicken was. In the summer they pair the chicken with fresh corn and roasted peppers, a wonderful combination. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable pairing the chicken with a lovely wine. The desserts were light and a perfect compliment to the meal. My wife and I ordered off the pretheater menu which was great value. If not the best, my meal at Pichet was one of the best I have ever eaten.

Food very good. However a bit on the pricey side and charging extra for sides is in my opinion is not acceptable. Should be included in main at no extra charge. Wine also very expensive.

I had the Beef Tartare as my starter and I have to say it was the best Beef Tartare I've ever had. amazing flavour and delicious with the sourdough bread. For main I had the Gnocchi which was very good but I just had food envy as my friend ordered the lamb and it was delicious as his empty plate showed :-) We shared the Creme Brulee for desert and it was equally very good although I would prefer it to be slightly warm (although that's just personal taste). The staff were excellent, from a service perspective right through to the banter and we were treated to delicious chocolates at the end of meal. Overall a really enjoyable meal with great food, service and ambiance. i will most definitely be returning!

A fabulous restaurant, the food was to a high standard, mussels and beef rib were stand-out dishes. We had a table of 5 for an early bird which was excellent value. Food intolerances were well catered for, and the service was first-rate. The feel is vibrant, sufficient space between tables, and the design is both comfortable and chic.
