                                  Pichet is a cute bistro type restaurant. We were seated promptly. The food was fabulous. I had a filet and my wife the duck breast. My filet was very tender with very flavorful pepper sauce and smoked potato purée. The only issue was the duck breast. Although it was very tasty, the breast was a little tough and chewy. But still very good. It is pretty expensive but worth the money. The room is very, very noisy. Maybe we just got unlucky but at times we couldn’t even talk even though we were seated right next to each other.

                                  Everything was excellent. Great food. Great cocktails. Great wine. The duck, in particular, is the best in Dublin.

                                  Food good. Things moved slower than expected. We’re there about 30 minutes before first course served. Other than that all was good (2 people in our party missed their 6p flight after a 215 reservation.)

                                  Felt rushed throughout experience. Noticed staff were impatient and the bill was brought out well before our 2 hour reservation was up (about 45 min-1hr before). Food was good quality, ambiance was energetic. Wasn’t quite what we expected and we were really looking forward to it since it was a special occasion.

                                  Pound for pound the best restaurant in Dublin. Amazing food, well presented and full of flavour.

                                  Food is excellent, a little too much balsamic for me and I prefer the thinner type of chip but still excellent. Good selection of wine by the half-litre carafe. Dining area is a little cramped but comfortable. 2 course lunch menu at 31 Eur is a little expensive. Service patchy and more concerned with speed. I knew I was going to be about 10 minutes late and tried to phone the restaurant but no one picked up. My guests arrived on time but were subjected to staff impatience and informed the table must be free in 2 hours. In the end, we left well before that, after an enjoyable meal.

                                  Picket is outstanding. From the start at the host stand to the service and food all elements of this restaurant are excellent. Our eyes were treated with visually artistic food that didn’t disappoint with excellent flavors and inventive combinations. We loved the burrata coupled with radicchio for a bitter bite, fig, grapes, and pickled walnuts for a slightly salty addition. The entrees of suckling pig and halibut matched the wonderful starter. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, yet not hovering. Don’t miss Pichet while in Dublin.

                                  The food was outstanding! The shortrib pasta starter transported me straight to Paris. I wish it came as a main and was always on the menu. I could eat that every day of my life and be blissfully happy. The tagliatelle with wild mushrooms was also decadent. Desserts were all perfection, especially the cinnamon donut and the mint in the white chocolate mousse with strawberries and honeycomb. To die for. Service was attentive but not overly so. Very polite and subdued. Noise level was pleasant and almost romantic. Three course lunch menu was €40 which was more than advertised on their website or even on the menu posted right outside the restaurant (€38.50). Dublin has a growing crop of trendy restaurants that have figured out a way to charge a fortune for small uncooked plates— for example, burrata with honey and peaches (not even grilled!) for €12. And they encourage you to order 3-4 plates. The bill ends up being outrageous, and I’m still hungry after. It’s very disappointing and a big turn off. Pichet is what all restaurant should aspire to be. Each plate is generous and has several elements that are cooked with love and detail and attention. And all for a reasonable price… exquisite French fare at a much more economical price point than hipster and obnoxious joints that are sprouting all over the city. We need more authentic restaurants like Pichet!

                                  Prices seem to have risen considerably and the early bird menu has vanished. While the food is superb and the service excellent the price hike makes it unattractive. Bring back the early bird menu, please!

                                  Pichet is a restaurant where its ambition runs well ahead of its performance. How this restaurant got a commendation from Michelin is a mystery to me. The food design is busy, confused and ultimately not very tasty. The chef needs to learn simplicity and quality and rely on your produce and make things simple. My partner had a very nice piece of halibut but it was soaking in a seaweed, mussel plus an unknown--a raisin?--soup which leaked onto the halibut. I had an unrecognizable "suckling pig". , plus a blackpudding, plus a leek, plus cauliflour plus a white sauce with raisins in it. Werfe all these meant to marry? We have been eating superior food in West Cork all Summer and le Pichet was a big disappointment.

                                  Excellent food and great atmosphere. The wine list could be extended to touch more price points particularly at the lower end of the range.

                                  Pichet is consistently excellent. We had a superb meal and the service was very professional but also friendly. We are never disappointed.

                                  A place for dining and wining, not for a lunch or dinner. Small dishes, small choice. Very good french restaurant overall.
