Pied à Terre is Fitzrovia’s most established Michelin star restaurant with 25 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 13 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 a privately owned and it has an experienced and loyal team who are known to diners. As with many employees, the head chef Andy McFadden has risen through the ranks. He was previously at sister restaurant L’Autre Pied before talking the helm in Pied à Terre’s kitchen in 2015.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.
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
All the dishes were incredible, high quality from preparation to presentation and absolutely delicious.
The end of this amazing evening was to invite us to meet the head chef, the kitchen crew and the owner
An absolutely memorable experience
I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone
We were in the private dining room on the top floor, a fantastic location for a festive gathering - intimate, relaxed, with attentive staff. I had an Autumn Leaf salad that initially looked underwhelming but revealed some hidden charms such as caramelised walnuts and some tender smoked beef. The Essex deer complemented by interesting vegetables including perfectly cooked beetroot was delightful. But my highlight was the dessert; I've never enjoyed apples as much as these that were poached in wine and accompanied by other sweet delicacies that I couldn't properly identify but thoroughly enjoyed. I wasn't drinking but am assured by my fellow guests that the wine waiter knew his grapes and suggested something well matched.
Amazing, knowledgeable staff and brilliant wine pairings. Food was interesting, but nothing I'll salivate over for months or years. Tasting menu + wine was £300 for 2.
