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!
This is my second time having lunch here. The French Toast is absolutely the most delicious that I have ever tasted. Look forward to returning.
Late night with my best friend we had a great time. The food was Fantastic. Entertaining and knowledgeable. It was our first time coming but we will definitely come back. Thank you
I've already shared a copy of the menu with friends to alert them of Ponty Bistro. AND look forward to the opportunity to go again.
I love the restaurant and travel there from Queens. I take people there and they are always pleased with the lunch or dinner experience.
The food is nothing out of this world, taste like homemade. Which is not bad, but when I go out I want to be surprise by the creations of the chef. Not very gourmet. Service was good and nice place.
I was very displeased with my last experience here. I’ve been to ponty 4 other times and had nothing but good things to say. However, during my last visit my favorite dish, the Africana Muscles, smelt extra fishy and tasted as if they had gone bad. Furthermore, my main brunch dish, Florentine Benedict, was ordered with everyone else’s entree but never came out with the entrees. When I asked where my food was, there was a confused look by the manager who I then watched put my order in, followed by zero apology by the waitress. I received my food once everyone had completed there meal. Very unfortunate experience after I had spoken so highly of this establishment to friends and family. I don’t know what going on Ponty Bistro.
Food is tasty and service is friendly and helpful. 139th Street from Fredrick Douglass Blvd to Adam Clayton Jr. Blvd. is beautiful.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Ponty’s Bistro. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was wonderful. The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating.
Amazing and great ambiance, will definitely be back.
Belated father’s day
Food was on point and the service impeccable. My party sat outside which was the perfect decision on a Sunny Sunday. My oooonly complaint was the lackluster drinks...it was more juice and sugar than alcohol which is a no no in NY. We don't do weak drinks. Otherwise...everything else was phenomenal.
The people at Ponty went out of their way to make sure we were happy. The food was wonderful. The ginger and hibiscus juice drink was amazing. And they paid very close attention to all our requests. Will definitely come back.
I love this place!
