Really fantastic food. A true gem and I can't wait to go back.
I’ll give them credit for trying for something great, but they’re mediocre at best.
Food is always delicious. Best calamari in town!
They weren’t ready for my group so we waited about 15 minutes. In the end they got us seating. They could use training in service
Visited for the 1st time last week to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary and had a great experience. Will definitely return.
Very nice atmosphere. Good location. Menu features a good selection of options.
Prices reasonable. Service respectful, friendly and accomodating. Food was served appealingly plated and was enjoyed.
Today’s brunch meal at Ponty Bistro was better than I’ve had in the past.
Ponty is a good neighborhood spot. The food is flavorful and neatly presented. The team works together, but sometimes there is lag time.
The Benedicts they serve are diverse and good.
The coffee is yummy as well.
Loved the maple crusted French toast and lox omelet. The staff is very attentive friendly and helpful.
Amazing food and service. Mustaf, took care of me (first at the bar, I was 1/2 hour early for brunch). and my sisters and I enjoyed the most amazing brunch. I recommend this restaurant for brunch, lunch dinner, great service, amazing food.. I will be back.
My standard go to spot. Love the hospitality always friendly. Great food!
Wonderful Restaurant in Harlem with inventive cuisine (French inspired, but African/Senegalese spice and flavor. Priced very appropriately, and not expensive.
Large portions, Great fish and chips and Lobster sandwich with Bacon.
We will definitely return many more times.
Wine priced appropriately as well.
We had a wonderful evening!
Dinner with my Daughter
Went To Open table as I wanted a place in the Harlem Area. Great vibe and everyone was very pleasant. Highly recommend and will return
Food is delish and the staff is welcoming and attentive
Arrived early but still had to wait over 30 past reservation time for a table. Excuse was an earlier “incident”. Food was good but expensive.
Food was wonderful!! Our waiter was very attentive! I highly recommend Ponty
Healthy/big portion. Food could be more refined in presentation but tasty. Staff was a bit stressed.
Fantastic food! Get the mussels with the African spice sauce. The yassa Poulet was delicious (generous portion!). We will be coming back. The servers were attentive and knowledgeable, and friendly with the kids on our group.
Tasty mussels and fish and chips
Wonderful service as rolls were fresh. Folks both drank and ate at the bar. Nice holiday crowd during light snowstorm .
Really tasty food and service was really good, even though a little bit of wait for us to be served.
Overall worth the price for the quality!
I’ve been wanting to try this place and decided to reserve a table for my birthday dinner.....mannn this food made our bellies so happy!! Everything was delicious, the staff was great, I’m so happy with my decision to go here. Also, I had a large group and they were able to seat all 13 of us with no problems and everyone still had room. 10/10
Wonderful food. Had the Thanksgiving pre fixe and it was perfect. Good wine. Service was good, a little underwhelming. Overall good experience.
This was a great place. It was our first time there, we will be back!
The food was excellent and the restaurant had a really nice vibe. Everyone at our table had something different and it was all delicious. ( Branzino, Rack of Lamb special, Le Poulet Tagine, Penne Alla Vodka, sea bass special ) Not a bad plate! Drinks where great as well!
They even had a DJ playing some afrobeats vibes. Great experience all around.
Best lobster BLT I've ever had! The service was wonderful and I'll return again!!!
Had a wonderful brunch today with my friend from Chicago. We had the lamb burger and the lobster BLT! Both were excellent but the Lobster BLT is a must do!
Bartender didn’t show up behind the bar until about 10 minutes. Inattentive , no personality, and had to ask for everything e.i.i water, drink menus, silverware, etc.
Great food, quiet dinner on a weekday early evening. Delicious red wine sangria with fresh fruit. My favorite restaurant in Harlem.
I’ve heard such good things and Ponty did not disappoint
I’ve been to Ponty Bistro many times for birthday celebrations, business meetings, dates, girls night out. Yesterday was for a family gathering. Everyone loved the food, location and ambiance of the restaurant. The first timers of the group kept saying that Ponty Bistro “deserves a few more visits because you can’t try everything in one sitting”.
WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!
Everything listed in the rating was outstanding...nothing more needs to be said.
The food was outstanding, an interesting mix of French and Senegalese, and the staff couldn't be nicer. Our only complaint was the noise level - my friend and I hoped to enjoy conversation, but that was impossible. The restaurant seems noisy in general, but an hour or so after we were seated (on a Friday night), they had a d-j playing very loud music.
the food was incredible, we really enjoyed our diner
Drinks could be better, service was fair but food was very good.
Great experience. Would go back.
The owner is beyond personable. He always comes by and she hi. He takes pride in the food and it's a place where I plan to come back
We had a weekday lunch, the everything was excellent.
Love this place!!!! Great food and service. Wait staff are some of the nicest!!! I’ve tried 2 different mussels dishes . Excellent!! Wonderful branzino with Senegalese spices and the best tarte tatin. Definitely recommend this French African.
The food was quite excellent here. Will definitely return. Staff was attentive and the dishes were fresh and delicious. A little pricey, but mostly worth it.
Food (brunch) and ambiance was amazing. Ended up sitting outside sipping on drinks for hours- haha! Looking forward to returning!
