Great food, very poor customer service no one greated us or took our coats when we arrived, we felt we were an inconvenience to our waiter who clearly had no interest in being there.
thankfully the food made up for his lack of interest.

Second time I have been to Pichet and the experience was equally as good both times. The steak was beautifully cooked as was the starter. Definitely a personal favourite when in Dublin either with work or for pleasure!

The food was amazing!! i went for my anniversary and we had the tartar and the lamb, it was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant. A bit expensive the prices but definitely worth it. The attention is also pretty good.

I would not recommend Pichet on the basis of the lack of training of the waiter who “served” us. He took our food order and asked if we wanted a “glass of wine?” He didn’t seem to be keen to offer us the option of a bottle of wine. He was keen to get us to drink water as he asked rwice if we wanted “still or sparkling. He brought us bread, olive oil and balsamic vinger with bread. He didn’t notice we hadn’t side plates. We had to ask for them and as he put them on the table he chimed in with - “the ye go boss”. He then came along and gave us a scrumptious French Onion Soup but also chimed in with “there ye go boss”. He also reached across us to place the food on the table. Although we tried to attract his attention when looking for side plates he didn’t notice us but there wasn’t any problem when it came to refilling our glasses with wine but ignored our empty water glasses. The mains were very salty. All in all we won’t be rushing back. I can recommend the cocktails but that’s the size of it. Please train your waiters.

The food is good, the service is professional but it misses some warmth in the overall atmosphere for a bistro.

Unfortunately a no of items had sold out of an already limited menu by the time we ordered at 9pm on Sat night. Celeriac starter was quite bland; rest of table really enjoyed the trout & mussel starters. Cod was the main course hit.
Server was the highlight of the meal; a gent from Croatia who maintained his sense of humour (& ours) despite having to tell us that 4 choices were unavailable. He kindly aerated the Reserve Rioja & decanted it which transformed the taste. Thank you.

Hi,

We loved the food and only have a couple of small complaints.
1. Our waiter was lovely but we were never told about the specials and on the night we were there they had a crab special that we would have gone with.
2. We did not have a great table, stuck up against a pillar, we felt very squashed.

What a great venue for a special meal! If you took the time, you can watch food being prepared in the kitchen, yet there is no clamour and if you don't notice, it can completely pass you by. Great food.

We really enjoyed Pichet. The restaurant is very stylish and there was a real buzz in the room. The service was friendly and efficient but a little perfunctory. It was good at getting you in and served but maybe a little rushed . The menu was a bit limited with only 5 main courses, we were not informed of any specials and only noticed on the way out . I ended up taking prime rib as the fish option was not to my liking. It was well presented but a little too much gristle for me. My partner liked her risotto but again the goats cheese sauce with it was a little overpowering. None of this put us off Pichet and we will go back but choose different courses next time. Good value for money for a restaurant of this quality in the centre of Dublin.Happy to recommend this venue

Genuinely the best service I have had in a very long time. We had several different waiters attend to us - they weren't imposing but still made sure we had everything we needed. Can't complain about the food - we both had steak which was perfectly cooked. Drinks also very good. 10/10!

This was my second visit to Pichet, the first being a group trip and I was impressed so returned for a more intimate dinner with my partner. Service was absolutely top notch, starters were very, very good, wine great the only tiny downsides (and really these are just personal preferences) were that the venison was cooked a tiny bit more than my preference and my partner found the duck a little less tender than expected though it was by no means tough. All in all, we enjoyed the meal and would go again.

Best food I've had in a long time. I had the burrata to start and hake and mussels for the main, my friend had a trout risotto to start and venison for his main. All 4 dishes were delicious and presented beautifully. Service was great, décor perfect - I particularly loved sitting at the bar for a drink afterwards, upscale cocktail bar vibe. My only complaint was that the dessert was not good, probably the worst crème brulee I've ever had - the custard was not set and the caramel on top was thick and sticky and stuck to the spoon in globs. Disappointing, but I can forgive a dessert misstep!

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.
