Pre/post Theatre
Casual
Tucked away down Dean Street amongst the hustle and the hipsters is the Pierre Victoire, one of Soho’s favourite dining institutions. This little haunt has been serving up rustic French cuisine to loyal regulars for over a decade, and this is still one of London’s favourite places for date nights and cosy pre-theatre meals. Part Provencal, part Art Nouveau, the dining room at Pierre Victoire is decorated with whitewashed walls, chalkboard menus, a vintage piano, eclectic artworks, untreated wooden floorboards and wine bottles stuffed with drippy candles, and the wholesome home-style cuisine and moreish wine is all delightfully affordable. With a steak-centric menu, Pierre Victoire also serves tasty omelettes, creative salads and plenty of seafood.

A group of six of us had yet another wonderful evening at Pierre Victoire. Always great service and beautiful food. When we get together as a group or when I want to go somewhere with my partner this is often our favourite choice.

Good food, great value, and a nice environment. Tables are a little squeezed in, but there was more than enough to compensate and we would definitely return.

We had a group of three sitting in the basement area, service was excellent and the food was absolutely beautiful in taste and visuals. One note about the basement is that sound tends to echo so be prepared to speak loudly if the room is full. The extensive wine list is a treat in itself, and the staff are warm and friendly.

Excellent food and value. My only gripe was being at a table next to outside with the windows open we were subjected to the smokers outside. Not a problem created by the restaurant just making other diners aware. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough

Absolutely wonderful experience! Food was brilliant (well cooked, brilliant value)! service was lovely and accommodating and the atmosphere was cosy and warm.
Hard to believe this restaurant is a small chain, it feels entirely independent. Definitely will be back to work our way through the menu!

Lovely french restaurant just a few minutes from Oxford Circus.
We had Calamari and Boeuf Bourguignon which was amazing.
Prices are acceptable.
Don't miss it!
We'll definitely be back soon :)

I have been dining at Pierre Victoire for many years and and have always found the food really good and at a reasonable price. However I have not been there for a while.
My recent visit was rather disappointing. The ambiance was not good; the piano player was playing some very boring and depressing tunes rather than the jazy, up beat tunes I remember from old.
Service was good and my partners roast duck excellent. My roast lamb was good but the dish looked a mess with the red wine jus all mixed with the avocado purée; yuk!
Also not do good value wise, especially the wine which has gone up in price a lot.

This was out third visit to this restaurant and in the past it has been difficult to get a table, the menu, food and ambience has been superb however no so this time. We booked for 7pm on a Saturday evening and to our surprise there were empty tables. This was due in our opinion to the very different menu below par food and especially to the new addition of an extremely loud piano player who seemed to be playing for his own amusement, so loud that we found it impossible to carry out a normal conversation and had shout to be heard when ordering our meal and drinks. The restaurant is too small and the piano ruined our intimate birthday meal in fact we nearly left before ordering. The menu is no longer typically french it is now a normal Mediterranean menu which you can get anywhere. So Au Revoir Pierre Victoire

Friendly, lively bistro-restaurant with good food and attentive staff - particularly good pre-theatre. When busy the restaurant can get a little noisy! Missed out on 5 stars due to minor problems - not all diners' orders appearing at the same time, steaks not cooked accurately to request.

Always great food and excellent service. If I have one criticism, it’s that the bread is always rather hard after it’s heated-up in the oven!

This little French Brasserie just off Oxford Street is such good value for money with friendly service and excellent food and wine for the money!
Tables are a little close together and it can be a bit noisy but if you want space and peace you'll have to pay a lot more!
The fixed price menu gives a great variety of choice!

We came here the first time on my wife’s birthday last year as she loves french cuisine and we were delighted with the overall experience. Our first experience with oyster, very fresh, pan seared scallops, and the mains were the duck breast and pan fried sea bass fillets. We loved every bit of it to wipe our plates clean. For dessert we had the creme brûlée. We went back this year the second time and with friends and started off with scallops, grilled mussels and the crab with mayo, and happily finishing off with our plates of sea bass fillets, lamb rump, and duck breast dishes again. We missed out the Hake fish for main course as they were already out of it. Skipped the desserts as were too full and finished off with the Raquel dessert wine. Their selection of regular wines is good too and we had our reds both times. Every bit value for money, extremely delicious dishes and would highly recommend it. Had been waiting to go back on special occasions, but why do I need an occasion for an awesome experience! The attendants are always smiling! Have been to their sister-concern the Prix-Fixe too!

My friend an I wanted a late lunch near Piccadilly. I looked online and Pierre Victoire, caught my eye. The set lunch menu looked really good. Neither of us were disappointed, it was really good, nice food, wine and not too busy, as we arrived around 2.30pm.
I would definitely go again and recommend the lunchtime set menu.

A lovely meal. Excellent service. I would like to know that any service we pay actually go to the staff and not purely to the management. We had a charming waiter and really hope that he would get the service which was added to the bill.
