Recommend for food. Service leaved a lot to be desired unfortunately. Waiters seemed disinterested. The manager on the day however was lovely, friendly and attentive at the end of our meal when they needed us to vacate the table. Expected a better experience for the reputation and the cost.

The food at Pichet was in general very nice, but some of the starters/main courses (we were a party of four) were of radically disparate sizes. I ordered a starter that I thought would be small (as I have a small appetite) but it turned out to be larger than any of the other ones and not so light! There were also very few vegetables with any of the main courses - we did not order sides as we didn't want 'extra' random vegetables that might or might not complement our food, but having wavered myself between the duck and the venison, I wished afterwards I'd had the duck, as this had a small roast onion as well as a bit of kale, whereas my venison was adorned, vegetable-wise, with the merest piping of creamed celeriac and two (yes 2!) leaves of cavolo nero. The food itself was nice, but felt a little unbalanced towards the meat component in each dish. This may be an attempt to push sides, but when a main course is €32 and you do not have a large appetite, I think it's not unreasonable to expect to be able to simply eat the main dish on its own. The meat/fish was ample and could even have been slightly smaller without that being an issue.

This our third time here and as before found it to be a great experience. The food is well prepared and presented and competitively priced. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. It was clear that the staff got on well together.

We'll definitely be back.

Highlight of the night was Darren’s obvious enjoyment ( and patience) in taking us through the wine list ... from Zinfandel to Tempranillo ending at a wonderful Corbiere that was amazing VFM !!

Food was just spot on ..... Gambas that wanted to burst right out of their shells ,tartare exploding with flavour that could almost have passed for a main course.... and a chocolate pudding that truly spelt decadence.

Had been 18 months since last visit... the next one will be a lot sooner than that.

Dinner was lovely, but never notified that needed to give the table back by a certain time and when came to ordering desert/coffee we were told we had to give the table back.. we arrived on time for our table, so if we didn’t have a chance to have a order desert at the table, is it maybe the service was slow?? The food was lovely and I had no problem with the menu but they couple we were with can not eat eggs and they pointed out that 3 of the starters all had eggs and were limited in there choice... we spent a lot of money at the bar also and I wouldn’t say that they bar staff were very friendly and over the 3 hours we sat at the bar, not one member asked us are we ok for drinks would you like another.

Have always enjoyed Pichet over the years but hadn't been there recently. Food, as ever, was excellent. Excellent taste, choice, quality top notch. Service however was disappointing; very off-hand, not friendly. We felt no 'love' at all from the maitre d' on arrival as the spokes were firmly stuck in the openings; no-one offered to help to get it out even though there were plenty staff front of house, while not rude was definitely not friendly; 4 out of 10.

This is a great restaurant with really good food, service is a little off. We had a 6:30 reservation; the only other time was 9:30 which was too late, but the restaurant was really busy and we liked that; we had thought we may be the only ones. The host told us, when we were seated, that we had the table for two hours, not the warmest welcome. We ordered cocktails to start but our appetizers arrived immediately so we couldn't relax and enjoy the cocktails. When food was brought out, they didn't know who was eating what. I'd expect a bit more at a restaurant with this reputation. While the food was really good, we felt a push to keep moving us through the feedlot so they could get on to the next feeding. In the end, after our allotted two hours, the restaurant was half empty and we took our time sipping our espressos.

When your greeting to your table starts with the words "I need the table back by 7.30 " you feel your meal and experience are going to be rushed. So it turned out. Although a super friendly waiter who took over was very professional and looked after us really well and explained the situation its hard to get past first impressions.
