    Okay food, not so great service. The day I went to Petit Poulet, I had to wait quite a long to be asked what I wanted, for my first glass of water, the bill, and to process my payment. For the latter, I gave up and went directly to the till.

    Dined on 7/24/2014
    This big-enough-and-not-too-large bistro style hotel lobby restaurant is terrific, and a great find in a nabe without many reasonably priced good places to eat. Something so mundane as rotisserie chicken - a great value there - comes out incredibly juicy and flavorful. Portions are terrific - you'll be taking some home to enjoy the next day. Wait staff is attentive and not annoying, and quite gracious. A find! Tip: Come Tuesday evenings when they have cassoulet on special, a real treat. $20, and again, you'll get two meals out of it.

    We ordered the reasonably priced prix fixe lunch. We enjoyed immensely every course! We loved the soup of the day, potato/ leeks and the generous serving of the house salad. For our main course, our efficient and friendly server, Servane, recommended the fish of the day, branzino - and wow, we unanimously agreed that it was the best cooked branzino that we have eaten in restaurants in a long time. The serving was also more generous than what many restaurants offer. We capped our satisfying lunch with the delicious espresso creme brulee served with an imaginatively cut strawberry. I must mention also that server, Javier, quickly granted our request to heat our bread without fussing. This place makes sure customers are happy!

    Starting with the good...Rotisserie chicken was good, juicy, and tasty. The BAD - I was the one who ordered the scallops on black linguine in a wine, butter sauce. The scallops were on thick, goopy, creamy sauce with a few strands of soggy pasta in it. I took the scallops off the plate and when I returned the pasta, telling the waiter that the sauce was too thick, the waiter should have asked me if I wanted the pasta in another sauce. He didn't. Woudl I return if I was going back to MSG? Maybe, but I would be ordering the chicken.

    My guests were skeptical about a restaurant right off Broadway and Herald Square, but Petit Poulet was a more-than-pleasant surprise. This French bistro is beautifully done, our waiter was attentive and helpful, the food and wine were great. I had the steak fites and my guests had the chicken in puff pastery. We started with escargot -- which is plenty for three people to share. Portions are healthy sized. And the prices are reasonable.

    This little French restaurant is well worth a visit. My dining partner and myself went for Sunday brunch and boy was it good! Our waiter was so attentive and helpful during our entire visit. I had the duck confit hash with 2 poached eggs. This dish is perfect if you're in the mood for a heavier breakfast. My friend had an enormous meal-sized salad with chicken, craisins and brie cheese. It looked delicious. I will end on my bloody mary which was made perfectly. I'd highly recommend Petit Poulet.

    Petit Poulet is a NYC restaurant centrally located and easy to find. They offered Sunday brunch but do not open until 11am. Hmmm??? Wait staff were very attentive yet not overly bothersome. Thus, we were able to have a conversation at our table without interruption yet our foodie and coffee needs were met. All of us were disappointed with the food. For NYC, I would have hoped it would have been tastier and more special which is the NYC draw.

    Came across this restaurant, by chance. Was looking for a nice place, with close proximity to MSG. Arrived earlier than my reservation, as my husband was parking. A waiter greeted me at the door and immediately seated me, eventhough he knew I was too early and alone. It was refreshing, as he immediately asked me if I would like to order a drink while waiting and had the busboy bring bread & water to the table. Eventually we ordered and had a nice variety of choices. Our food was very good. The restaurant had an intimate feeling and our waiter was exceptionally attentive. PS said waiter, poured me a second glass of wine and said Happy Mother's Day. This was two days ago...a nice touch!

    My friends and I ate dinner at this restaurant on Friday night. This restaurant is not a lot of guests, is a good gathering place, but it is more common food, nothing special or outstanding. We placed a order of Middle Raw Beef Steak (Filet Mignon Au Poivre), they gave us Well done one. The only taste good is the dessert - Cream Brulee Trio.

    We were wondering where to eat at after 9:00 p.m. near the Empire State Building and found Petit Poulet. We were seated right away and offered complementary Champaign for our first visit. The food was very good as was the wine the waiter suggested from the very reasonable wine list. We would go again even though we are not usually in that neighborhood.

    I was looking for a nice restaurant with good food, affordable wine offerings and great service. Aren't we all? Petit Poulet was great on all counts. The waiter was pleasant, very knowledgeable and polite. My date had the Sea Bass and I had the Scallops Francese and they were wonderful in both taste and presentation. Even the pasta that came with my dish was remarkably good and the sauce was outstanding. If you are looking for a romantic, candle lit, quiet place, this is not where you want to be. But, if you want a great meal at a nice cozy place, this is a gem. I will come here again and will highly recommend it to my friends.

    I was staying on Hotel Row, 44th Street between 5th and 6th, and didn't know where to eat. I found this place on Open Table, and I'm glad I tried it. The location is unexpected — midblock on 33rd, near the Empire State Building, where you'd expect to find a TGI Fridays, not a classic French bistro. Step inside and you'll forget where you are. Widely spaced tables, tile floor, great food and impeccable service. I mean it: impeccable service. The foie gras, the duck, the escargot, the lamb are all sensational. Such food would be enough to recommend the restaurant, but Sam, the maestro of a perfect meal, truly makes the place special. I've eaten many times at Brasserie Les Halles and Brasserie 8 1/2. Petit Poulet is my new favorite.

We'll definitely return so that we can try the profiteroles...or creme brulee...or tarte tatin. And the decor...tile floor, coppery pressed tin ceiling, mirrors and marble bar...all made it feel like we were in a Parisian bistro.
