we had a lovely meal and the service was great .. but the place lack atmosphere .. and given it was a saturday night seemed lacking in a buzz. I hope you don't mind me saying that. The booth areas was empty .. and the main room seemed less finished that other parts of the establishment. It needs something to soften the look .. upholstered chairs and bigger tables .. we struggled to fit everything for meal for 4. i really like the place and would frequent more often but it needs a buzz ... something to attract people to stay that side of town ...

Despite the food being very good, the service was appalling. It wasn't overly busy and don't quite know why it took over 20 mins to be served gin and tonics. The starter arrived reasonably quickly but then waited over an hour for the main. This was questioned with the waiting staff when it became apparent that the adjacent tables, who came in afterwards, were all eating their main courses. Was told that there was an error in communication with the kitchen. Was given 10% off the bill for this delay but I won't be rushing back.

Food was really nice. The staff very polite. My only concern was that the place lacked atmosphere. I will go again as it was at the end of January. Maybe people is not going out much after Christmas. Speaking to my friends they all thought this place was only for members. I think you should make it very clear that anybody can go and enjoy your restaurant and bar. Not need to be a member!

Very mediocre food for the price. The duck terrine starter was poor, felt like it had come straight out a tin. The bread that came with it was not fresh. The smoked salmon starter was disappointing, coming with buttered finger sandwiches on what looked like cheap brown bread. Steak main was under seasoned chewy, peppercorn sauce felt packet, chips were ok. Pork tenderloin was dry, not impressed in the slightest, the dauphinoise were small, cold and the potato cream ratio wasn't ideal. Chocolate tart was probably the best bit. The Panna cotta was good too. For the price and appearance of this restaurant we had high expectations, then menu didn't seem very adventurous and all of the food was very mediocre, not at all the caliber expected. Safe to say we were disappointed. If you're looking for a good restaurant for good food then bistro pierre is the place to be!

We've only just found this place & what a find! We booked at 5pm for the pre theatre menu & we were the first in & only ones in for a while, so hard to rate for atmosphere. I would imagine it would be great when there were more people. A beautiful place, finished to a really high standard & the food didn't dissapoint. £18 for 2 courses or £21 for 3 courses. Really tasty food, looked amazing too. A couple of slight issues, the extra vegetables we ordered didn't come with the mains, (but did come quickly, once mentioned) & the items were put through separately on the bill, not as the £21 menu, so we had been overcharged by £4 until we mentioned it, however it was quickly rectified. The staff, apart from this, were really friendly & helpful. Would return & hope they do well, as it's really nice to have a good place to go.

A little bit more variety on the menu, but otherwise excellent. Perhaps add the lunchtime options to the evening menu. Service excellent, very friendly without being artificial or overbearing. Lovely conversion of the building.

Whilst the food & service of the food was good, the service of drinks was extremely slow & were told at 22.50 on a Saturday night that this was the last round of drink’s we could order !! We were allowed one more after this though.
