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.

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!

I booked through your website and we were given a table downstairs near the restrooms.
Upstairs ambiance and setting were much better.
Very disappointed

Excellent pre-theatre meal from the set menu, exceptional value for the location but nothing about the quality of food or service felt in any way cheap.

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.

Outstanding value with astonishing set-menu. Enthuiastic, excellent service by two (probably not British?) young waiters.
We will certainly return.

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.

Never a disappointment - wonderful menu at such a reasonable price for the West End.

What made it particularly good this time was the excellent, friendly service from the two lovely Italian waitresses - they are a real asset to the restaurant. Thanks so much for making our lunch so enjoyable.

Nice menu and very tasty even though in the touristy area. Pleasant inside as well. We had all starters which were delicious and enough to share. The bottle of organic table wine was nicely priced too.

Lovely lunch at PV in London. We love the restaurant in Oxford and tried this one. The set lunch was great, particularly the pulled chicken salad as a starter, which was great value! Steak was tasty and staff were very friendly. Definitely recommend!

Food was good and tasty though I found mine a little over salted for my taste. Generally good value except my chargrilled octopus starter, which was a single tentacle for £11.50. Service was fine but waiters could do with a little training on the wine of the month that is left on every table. It would help if they had some tasting notes for it and so could promote it. Overall happy with my meal here with friends.

A very quaint but nice restaurant for a quiet and private dinner. We must record our gratitude to the hostess as they had forgotten to add the dessert and coffee charge to our total bill, on reminding them of this mistake, the hostess gracefully offered it as "on the house" gesture. Trust good service and people are still around us!

Amazing value, authentic French food. We went for the pre-theatre menu, which meant it was speedy and efficient, rather than atmospheric, but this is what we wanted. Absolutely delicious.

Excellent meal for the money. Small bustling restaurant with tables close together with decibel levels to ensure sore throats in the morning but it’s all worth it for the food. You won’t get better in SoHo for the price,

Staff were unwelcoming and slow, we ordered the pre theatre menu but we're still late to the theatre because of terrible service who still tried to make us pay for the full menu even though we had only had starters. Terrible atmosphere and would not recommend. Many nicer restaurants on the same street!

Not been here for a while. It used to be excellent.

This time, we were allowed to off the set menu and then a different waiter came back and told us we had to make a new order off the a la carte but some items were the same but just charged at a higher price.

Our particular waiter ( and he seemed to be the head waiter ) wasn't particularly nice. That fake, insincere, going through the motions, this isn't what I dreamed of doing with my life type waiter. Nearly ripped my debit card out of my hand when it came time to paying. Metaphorical bad taste in the mouth.

Lovely authentic little restaurant. In a very busy area, but at the same time away from all the busyness. Authentic french food, the quality of which we were very impressed with. Keen to try other dishes on the menu so shall definitely be returning for more! Plus good value for money! 10/10 customer service; the guys were very professional and friendly, and we have felt well looked after. Highly recommended!

There were some very very noisy diners in and we could not hear what we were trying to say to each other. As the alcohol flowed so the decibels increased. Ruined our reunion lunch. Food and staff brilliant as ever. Very sad.

Pierre Victoire never fails to be a good experience - staff and service are excellent. Food was excellent - great value and we had a lovely meal at the weekend. It can be noisy (no soft furnishings to absorb sound) but that's the fault of other diners, not the restaurant. Toilets were being refurbished - so will be a big improvement once finished.

We are not local but have now been several times both for pleasure and working lunches, and will definitely be returning again :o) Thanks everyone, front of house and chefs, for a lovely meal once again.
