This was the first time visiting Le Bistrot Pierre having been invited by my Nephew to have lunch with him and my Sister for her birthday. Needing a wheat and gluten free menu, I am always a little sceptical when it states 'we cater for dietary requirements' - I need not have worried as there is an extensive W&G Free... More

We had the pre-theatre menu, and it was great. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the accompanying wine and starters were lovely. If you are going to a show in Stratford, this is a great and convenient place.

We have visited Pierre's Bistro three times now and every visit has been exceptional. The service, the food and the ambiance are excellent. The service is attentive but not over powering, the ambiance is casual and fun , and the food is delicious with a capital D. Do not miss the mini Chirizo in honey starter. We are already looking...

Met an old work colleague for a pre christmas evening meal. I have always enjoyed eating here, but this evening the food and service were abysmal. The waitress spoke so fast and incoherently in very poor English we didn't understand a word she said.The steaks were so tough we spent more time spitting out pieces of grisle than exchanging news...

What a fabulous view form this very French restaurant. Wooden floors highly polished and jean clad serving staff makes it feel like a bistro in Paris. A really nice atmosphere can be enjoyed here with a good menu and a specials board to tempt all customers. The wine list gives a good choice and there is plenty of parking at... More

A table of 9 adults and 2 children who had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes for their main course. It spoilt the birthday meal of one of the elderly people. Part of the meal was inedible....tough steak and hard french beans. The calamari rings could have done with slightly more cooking too. The waitress did deduct a round... More

4 of us went for Christmas dinner here, not as good as expected disappointed with the food. The table was cramped and the staff had to keep moving things around to get everything on. Shame as the food on normal occasions is very good. Maybe Christmas dinner is one they should steer clear of.

For the past 3 or 4 years, Bistro Pierre has had the dubious pleasure of being the venue for our family pre-Xmas get-together. There are usually about 35 of us, ranging in range from a few months old to 95 years who meet up for lunch. We have 1 of the function rooms which means we have plenty of room... More
