I was very disappointed as I wrote in my online booking that it was a special birthday and I would love if they could do a candle and a happy birthday in the dessert for my other half, I even rang the restaurant on the day and reminded them that I wanted all that done later that evening, they assured me it would all be taken care of, we ordered starters, the cote de beouf and desserts, the desert came out with nothing and we were brought the bill, the food was magnificent and the restaurant is lovely, service had been great up to the last course and then no mention of the birthday plan I had arranged, it was a lovely evening but I was so let down by that, as was my other half as it was his big day

Pichet is fabulous in every way. The moment we walked in the door we got a great welcome from the bar man. Staff were the most friendly of any restaurant I’ve ever been to. All said hi as we were shown to our table. Beautiful decor & the chairs are so comfortable. Lunch menu is amazing value & the food was extremely tasty. Our Croatian waiter was a total gentleman and so, so nice. There was a great buzz and I’m so glad we dined there as it’s absolutely gorgeous and an absolute delight to dine there.

Superb meal. Wanted to catch-up with a friend so we booked an early slot to avail of the pre-theatre menu which was great value. Lots of options and delicious food with decent portions. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, and despite being at a table for two in a busy restaurant, we didn't struggle to hear each other. Already looking for an excuse to go back!

Beautiful menu & atmosphere. We really enjoyed Pichet. The waiter was a little pushy with us wanting to stay and enjoy our meal. He didn’t give us the appropriate red wine glasses & wasn’t friendly. Other than that, the food was excellent and we would return again!

First time here in several years, post Munier. Very busy Sunday evening service, with most tables full or filling.

Menu is quite good, and excellent value. Service was attentive and prompt. I personally felt underwhelmed with the food, it just didn't seem as good as before, maybe the comparison is unfair. I would go back but wouldn't rush.
Pumpkin soup is good, potato gnocchi is a little tasteless and the ile flotante was good but small

Food was ok but the service was terrible. Given a table that was really cramped, when we asked to move to one of the many free tables we were told they were all booked.
An hour later half the restaurant was still empty.
The waiter had no idea what the specials were so one of us got up to go read the board. We asked what he recommended and he just said it depends what you feel like.
We spent over £300 for lunch for 4 people, I would expect far better at half that price.

Great bar service, fantastic cocktails. Our food was top class however our waiter was very poor. Forgot water and wine, tried to get us to move from the table to the bar for desert even though we had the table booked, then when we were paying he just turned his back and served another table. V poor service in an otherwise lovely experience.

Was such an amazing experience. The table service was amazing always remembered who ordered what without asking again, very polite staff, the gin was just great! Very friendly staff and just an overall lovely experience. The price was very reasonable as well. Was or friends birthday and even though we only had main and starters they still brought him out a sweet treat.

Had a great night , a few negatives but I would return.
Our starter arrived before our drinks , don’t think the bar and the kitchen are communicating well. I had the oysters - excellent but whoever opened them cracked the shell into the oyster .. so I had some shell with the oyster - annoying. Our cheese board took ages to come ... so floor staff maybe the most negative even though they are friendly..

It was a return visit after a long absence and Pichet did not disappoint.
Service throughout was professional helpful and friendly.
Food was delish, we shared the crab special with mussels and sourdough, followed by rack of lamb ordered by my husband and two of us had the Beef special which was succulent and beautifully cooked.
We passed on dessert this time around.
We will return!!

Not our first time eating at Pichet, but the first time we ordered off the Pre-Theatre menu and the food was excellent. Even though it was early on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was busy - but the atmosphere was lovely. The staff are very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely be back!
