Wonderful night. The food, ambience and service was excellent. Our server Colm was very attentive, friendly but unobtrusive. Most enjoyable and would highly recommend the whole experience. A great night

A rich and wonderful combination of excellent friendly service, good quality food and healthy portions, great ambience delivering a near perfect evening for us (couple looking for casual but special eating out experience). Have eaten at Pichet a number of times before and each time I return the experience reminds me why I come back each time. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely lunch and everything was very nice, however we had a voucher that was a gift to us. We tried to pay and they said that they could no longer take this voucher as they had changed their machines and the new machine was not reading our gift card. We were supposed to be contacted by someone regarding this and we are still waiting for that follow up call. It took the shine off what would have been a lovely afternoon.

We had dinner in Pichet the previous weekend and found it excellent so I felt very sure about booking it for lunch yesterday as we were hosting an American friend . But, while the service was very good we were all disappointed with the main course, especially. The guinea fowl was overpowered by the almost indigestable barley and my husband was not impressed with the organic salmon and felt it was overcooked . Soup and terrine were very good but I felt the sauce was too sharp with the mussels. Ils Flottante was excellent. While we chose the cheapest white wine, we expect a reasonable taste but this fell far short.
I was particularly disappointed because I had insisted on going to Pichet with my previous experiences . the other times had been for dinner but I did not expect such a deviation on standard for lunch .

We were at Pichet with our children for my husband's 60th birthday and having eaten there before, I knew that it was ideal for this celebration. The food was outstanding and the service we received was very professional and courteous. The restaurant was fully booked as it was Saturday night and there was a lovely atmosphere in the room. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pichet for any special occasion.

Menu is comprehensive and easily adapted for any food allergies. Staff on the floor are very helpful.
Tables are quite close to each other, so you have to raise your voice to be heard.

The night overall was wonderful. The early bird is fantastic value and will definitely be returning for it again! The ambiance was lovely and relaxed and the staff were more than helpful. The only comment that I would make was myself and my partner both had the mussels and were slightly disappointed. Everything else was excellent and we will definitely recommend to others!

Had the Valentine’s Day set menu. Cocktails were tasty however food was nothing special and definitely not worth €118 which automatically included a 12% service charge. We witnessed 3 incidents of staff having “talks” with other which seemed like discussions which should not have been on the restaurant floor. Soup was ok but not served very hot, gnocchi was tasty and so was the peanut parfait. Service otherwise was good with attentive waiters.

Service was slowish but adequate.

The pork belly had quite a lot of cartilage which made it uncomfortably crunchy

We arrived and felt as though our booking had been forgotten. We had to wait for our table and were sat between two very large, loud groups of people. The food was lovely but the ambience was awful. I'm sure that this was a departure from the restaurant's usual high standards but we were so disappointed.
