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.

If you are there for early evening then expect to be rushed as they get you through for later evening service. Although, for its location, price and quality of the food it’s something you can cope with. Hadn’t been for ages but will be back as remembered how good value it was.

Another excellent set menu meal at Pierre Victoire. You can’t beat the quality of food at this price in Central London. I can’t find another restaurant anywhere that only charges £3 for a dessert! Will definitely return.

We visited after a theatre trip and we were welcomed as soon as we arrived. We were shown to our table and there was a great atmosphere as it was about half full. I ate off the inclusive menu choosing the chicken liver starter and confit of duck, both were delicious and of generous portions. My wife had sea bass off the a la carte menu and that too was excellent. To round off we had creme brûlée and an apple tarte tartin. The whole meal was excellent value for money and delicious. We will return, what a great find.

We had a very enjoyable meal here, booked at 5pm on a Thursday, prior to a great evening at the theatre. The food from the set menu we chose was excellent and service timely without being intrusive. Although few people were there on our arrival, it was very busy by the time we left at about 6:40.

We had a very nice meal but initially the waitress tried to sit us at an awkward table for 3 facing the wall even though there were only 2 of us. I noticed that she offered the table to other couples who always asked to sit elsewhere.

Excellent food and service and very reasonably priced. I have had a pre theatre meal and a lovely lunch here in the last few weeks and both times the food and service have been spot on! I’ll be visiting again soon, thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Lovely ambiance too.

Tucked away just off Oxford Street, Pierre Victoire offers generous portions of well-prepared and tasty food. We went for the three course set menu; lots of choice, few annoying supplements and all very well cooked and served by friendly and obliging staff. Noise level on Sunday was medium and we spent an unhurried three hours in the restaurant. Highly recommended.

Really nice meal at this cute little restaurant. We both had steaks, and while the meat wasn't cooked particularly to my idea of medium rare, the beef itself and the sauces were particularly good.

Only two negatives - it's a bit loud, particularly when the pianist is performing, but he was also very talented and lovely to listen to while we ate. Also my glass of house merlot wasn't very good at all, but it's my fault for not tasting it first. I'm sure they would've been happy with replacing it if I had asked.

Excellent French Bistro with friendly and welcoming staff serving good food at a reasonable price. Although a bit noisy, the restaurant has a good ambience and intimate setting. It is always worth a visit and I would certainly recommend it to friends.

Didn’t have everything on their menu, service was poor, waiter threw the menu onto the table very rudely when asked for the menu, food was shoved on to the table in a very unwelcoming way when being served. Starters were good but sides and mains were overly salted. Constant draft due to their broken door so it was very chilly throughout out the meal. Whole experience was very unsatisfying.

Loved everything about Pierre Victoire. The food was excellent, as was the Merlot, the service was perfect; very friendly, attentive staff, swift service but not rushed. And it wasn't so noisy that you couldn't hold a conversation with your fellow diner. We loved it so much that we are going back in a couple of months when we are next at the theatre. Oh and good value for money.

Still love it after all these years! It does seem to get noisier every time we go though- not the place for a romantic tete-a-tete!

Food delicious, waiters super (although we miss Matteo), nice new clean shiny loos, excellent value prices, capacious wine list- can't wait to go back!

Service laughably terrible, one of worst I’ve ever seen, items requested 10 times still brought - plus reservation was lost even though it was on the app meaning we ended up with a cramped table. Food was average+, which given your in soho the food capital of uk it’s not exactly what you want. Previous reviews on here and google are a bit of a mystery to me.

Excellent venue. I haven’t been in about 10 years and although the food wasn’t as outstanding as I remember it being it was very good. No pianist though...I thought he was there all weekend. Lovey time however!

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 :)
