We went here at the last minute, and they were accommodating and approachable. The food was amazing - the beef and pork melted in your mouth, and the servers were polite but not pushy. Well worth the money for a beautiful place with great food!

While never a fine dining, all singing all dancing place, it was always good, with well made, tasty food and decent portion sizes. However, that has sadly gone. The food was edible, but that’s all I can say really. The signature dish, Beef bourguignon, should...really be a delight, full of flavour and rich, but it was a damp squib compared to what it used to be. And stodgy mashed potato is NOT the same as well made pomme purée. No qualms about the service, staff were friendly and helpful, but the food is now pretty average.More

We booked this place in advance for a special celebration based on the excellent reviews. The staff were friendly and helpful, we had a great table and service was fine. The menu was interesting and range of drinks fair. All good until our drinks order...arrived. The draught Camden Hells came in bottles, we were not informed of this and when questioned staff did not offer an alternative. The wine we ordered a Picopoul de Pinet 2019 arrived and we realised a few minutes after it was a different wine. My daughter who worked in the wine industry was sure it did not taste like a Picopoul de Pinet (and I wasn't keen on it) so I asked the waitress to check. The bottle was a 2018 Les Granges de Felines. The waitress advised it was a Picopoul de Pinet and my wife did not want a fuss. I'm annoyed with the misrepresentation of beer and wine. Maybe I'll have a word with trading standards. The price a the 330ml bottles was almost the price of the pint of draught. Most of the food was excellent however the chicken dish main course was a little bland. Overall average, overpriced and the issue with the drinks serious enough for me to complain but felt fobbed off. Please be truthful about your drinks especially if charging £29 for a £7 bottle of wine.More

I visited and had the three course meal. I was expecting better quality, unfortunately. The starter (french onion soup) was not nice at all and looked unappetizing - it was very dark and small portion with a very tiny bit of brown bread floating on...the top. It didn't taste good. The main meal was average, a chicken and mushroom sauce. The dessert (creme brulee) was actually excellent. Service was fairly quick except initially while I waited to get the attention of staff who were indulging in a long conversation with another customer (chit chat) and mocktail was alright. I expected better.More

Up from Hampshire for the footie. Booked ahead for Saturday evening…..so fairly busy. Good table for 2 - shared the chorizo and prawns to start and both ordered the fillet steak medium. What a great piece of meat perfectly cooked and presented. Excellent bottle of...Merlot. Our waitress was Martina (??) who couldn’t have been more attentive throughout. All in all a great evening back in our home town.More

We visited Bistrot Pierre on Wednesday to claim our free bottle of rosé, and to enjoy the restaurant’s usual friendly service, this time from Ania, lovely atmosphere and great food. Special mention must go to star of the evening, the enormous strawberry Pavlova! Thank goodness...the Leicester branch didn’t close for good, as was threatened during lockdown, it would have been such a huge loss. There’s always something for everyone on the menu, a good drinks selection, total value for money and a brilliant loyalty scheme.More

Such amazing service, from the moment you walk in. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. The food is top notch and very more-ish, and very reasonably priced, for the quality of what lands on your table! Was...my friend's birthday and they were happy to make a good night great. Our waiter Ania Ada was excellent and is an asset to this beautiful restaurant. Thank you all for the evening xMore
