Pied à Terre is Fitzrovia’s most established Michelin star restaurant with 28 years under its belt. It is associated with luxury, fine dining and has one of the best wine cellars in London as voted by Hardens readers and The Sunday Times. The restaurant itself is set over four levels in a beautiful townhouse and includes the stunning private room seating 16 and The Hidden Bar on the first floor is open to non-diners and serves incredible wines, champagnes and nibbles. Pied à Terre is still privately owned and it has an experienced and loyal team who are known to diners. As with many employees, the head chef Asimakis Chaniotis has risen through the ranks. He was previously at sister restaurant L’Autre Pied before talking the helm in Pied à Terre’s kitchen. Owner David Moore is a prominent industry figure and commentator. His presence on BBC’s The Restaurant as an Inspector, regular appearances on BBC’s Masterchef, The Clink and ITVs Good Morning make him a familiar face in the restaurant that has been voted the best fine dining service in London. Lunch is served from 12pm - 2.30pm Monday - Friday. Dinner is served from 6pm - 11pm Monday - Saturday.
Excellent food and staff. Beyond comparison. 4 meals here over the years and always received the highest standards.
I have been eating here a good number of times in the last 2.5 years. While I was very impressed when I first discovered Pied à Terre, I think that this restaurant is not able to maintain its high standard.
Unfortunately the quality of the food is inconsistent if you chose the 10 course menu. Some of the dishes are absolutely great and creative, but then there are a few that really fall behind. Last time I was here in the beginning of January, the dessert was rather disappointing and the vegetarian 10 course menu that my wife had, was clearly not on par with the non-vegetarian version and it looked like the cook was running out of ideas.
Furthermore, I have noticed that Pied à Terre is selling discount vouchers on Groupon. As a client who has been here multiple times and always consumed for 400 £ or more + tip, I find it disappointing to see that this restaurant is giving a 30% discount to those who are smart enough to search google for it. I am not a fan of discounts, and I think a Michelin starred restaurant should not do this. Regular clients who come here with their families, business partners and friends don't appreciate this.
Since reopening more than 10 years ago after a devastating fire Pied-a-Terre then the proud holder of two Michelin stars has struggled to maintain its high cooking and staff standards. One thing that it has maintained however are prices which are no longer good value
The tasting menu was good, the wine pairing and the sommelier great. Overall not bad but very very overpriced for the quality and service. Yes, it has had a Michelin star for 20+ years butnit hasn't really evolved since then. It's been sat on those Michelin laurels for the 80s and doesn't feel like it's progressed at all. Good for a one time experience but certainly the business doesn't have repeat customer focus in mind. Shame, but no better than average for London.
Tried the tasting menu which was tasty but the overall vibe seems a bit outdated and bordering on being dowdy compared to other Michelin star restarants in the area. Was worth trying but not sure I'd return.
