For a romantic dinner for 2 you cannot go past this place. Food and service is exceptional, and my only negative would be that the portion sizes are quite small for the price, but the quality and flavours are amazing. The steak tartare is my favourite by a long shot.

Thanks for your continued support and lovely review - just a answer re the portion size - everything needs to be portioned and priced accordingly to ensure we can keep our doors open. Offering the freshest of product gives us no room to move here - would if we bought and offered frozen, but thats not our thing at Pierre's.... More

We used to go there 50 years ago and in fact the original owner is still alive at 94 years old. WE just had water with the meals and because we had a... More

Well known and fit out is most redeeming feature but menu not extensive and restricted floor plan. Great for coffee catch ups but not that private. Service can be hit and miss and does not cater too late during week.

Restricted floor plan ? Pierre's has been operating for more than 60 years now and has had the same floor plan which we still operate. 10 years ago our family bought the building and made huge improvements - the investments added extra areas to allow for functions and a new bar which is operable and available to those who wish...

- pouring wine without tasting or showing the table the vintage etc when we bought the bottle. Wrong vintage brought however waitress already poured and ran?? - possibly the reason they poured the glasses so full so they would not have to revisit until deserts. - glassware that resembles glass jars and when asked for slightly better glassware they didn't...

My partner and I really enjoyed our dinner here! We ate quite a lot of seafood dishes, all of which were fresh and delicious. Wait staff were great and attentive.

Just had the traditional "Moules et Frites" for lunch. Plump mussels, velvety sauce and crispy, fluffy fries. Absolutely fabulous and better than the same dish we recently tried in Paris. Enjoy!

My husband and I dinned at Pierre's in December 2016, and it was perfect. From the moment we entered the establishment to when we left. The service was spot on. The lady that served us was polite, friendly, professional and had perfect timing. She did not over do it, however she made sure we had everything we needed at all... More

We attended with a larger group to celebrate a family member's birthday, we have had wonderful experiences in the past however have predominately visited for lunch or coffee. Unfortunately the service just wasn't where it needed to be on this occasion, asking for a drink seemed to be an inconvenience, the food is quite pricey for what is provided (I... More

Went with a group of thirteen, quite pricey at $35 to $45 for a main plus $8.50 for one side dish, making it around $50 for a main dish. Portions were generally small except for the chicken. One waitress must have had a bad day and gave the impression she did not want to be there (or us to be... More

Thanks - our mains are no more expensive than any other good restaurant in town. They are also served with accompanied sides and your choice if you wish to order more. All portions are weighed and priced accordingly keeping in mind all our produce is fresh. Hopefully we can please you better next time. More
