This was the best fried chicken I have ever had! Bar Poulet is absolutely worth a splurge meal.

It was our first visit last night to bar pulet and I found the food to be very good. The fried chicken is outstanding I agree with the reviews. The cauliflower au gratin was delicious I will definitely be back my only negative observation is the music was extremely loud and after two tries the server got to reduce down to a level where you can have a conversation at the table without having to yell at each other. The space is small so it's an issue if you have boisterous tables as far as noise level.

Fantastic food despite a limited menu. The chicken was divine (of course) but we enjoyed the sides as well. I also like the funky atomostphere--really mostly a bar with a few additional tables.

I would have absolutely enjoy this place if the salt content wasn’t so high, the staff was amazing, the atmosphere was great, the drinks were great but my chicken had way to much salt and when it was paired with the curry Mayo it was salty. I was able to get the curry Mayo swapped for the honey

The service was excellent and we enjoyed our experience overall. The food was good, but would like to see bread for the table or as a menu option. It’s a French themed restaurant without bread!?! Would like to see bottle pricing added to the menu- it’s only priced per glass. Lastly, the chocolate mousse is good but it has raspberries; the menu doesn’t mention them.

The food was delicious! The chicken was so crispy and the inside was juicy. I got the pepper lavender honey which was great. The marinated heirloom tomatoes weren't anything special. The staff was friendly and attenuative. The place is adorable! I would definitely go back. My only negative is it is a bit pricy, but we expected it.

I've been to Tria many times, so I was excited to try Bar Poulet by the same owners.
And it did not disappoint. It's charming, the menu is fun, the food was great, and the service was so very professional - someone was always there to help, but
I never fell like they were hovering.

We'll be going back soon!

The ambience, food, and service were good. Understandably, due to the COVID-19 restrictions the service is limited to 1 hour and 45 minutes. I went to enjoy a happy hour/ early dinner with a friend I haven't seen in over a year due to the pandemic. During the dining experience, we had four different servers/staff members back and forth from at our corner table (i.e. removing plates, check, drinks, reminder of time left at table). At one point, my dining guest felt like it was overwhelming and the staff was hovering, especially since it didn't appear to be many people in the restaurant. I had similar feelings. It could very well have been that the establishment was providing superb service, but it was truly overwhelming and gave a vibe of being rushed. To be fair, I will definitely go back to Bar Poulet, but will likely wait until the restrictions are lifted to compare experiences.

We were outside, so you can’t take my rating for ambience and noise level too critically. However, when I did go inside to use the restroom, the inside looks gorgeous. The price point and what you get for it is outstanding. We’ve been telling everyone we know to go here since we’ve been. The sauces for the chicken?!? To die for. And they even do vegetarian chicken option which I can appreciate!!
