Great service that only got better and more homely with each visit. Very helpful and accommodating when it came to wheelchair accessibility. Went above and beyond to make each visit a little event. Beef Wellington was lovely. Would recommend

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.

We were at Pichet for a work dinner and we loved every bit of it. The food was delicious and the service was first class. I am vegetarian so the chef made me food that I could eat, which was surprisingly delicious. The ambience was so good and we enjoyed our dinner.

Enjoyable early bird dinner. The food was delicious, portions are not huge but we’re sufficient without the need for sides, which cost extra. Cocktails are pricey enough. Staff friendly and attentive. Will be back!

Went to Pichet for a family dinner after a graduation and it was exactly what we wanted. Such a warm and relaxed atmosphere and the staff were more than accommodating, moving our tables together (while abiding by COVID-19 guidelines) and giving complimentary dessert as a congratulations to the graduate. There was a great atmosphere and the food was great too. We’ll definitely come back for another family meal here!

Excellent choice throughout the 3 course menu. Started with a delicious Rum Punch and and Old Fashioned, followed by some food. A Beautiful short rib Beef starter, and a really tasty Chicken with a slow Cooked Egg and crispy crumb, roasted hake and a basil Gnocchi ( beautiful) and then to desserts - an interesting White Chocolate and Yoghurt Mousse and a Lime Tart, Meringue and raspberry sorbet.
Good selection of Pichets at Pichet, white, red and rose.
