The wait staff is top notch. The food delicious. A great addition to the UWS.
As always the chicken was fabulous. Unfortunately the sides and dessert weren't as good. Hope they keep their standards as high as when they started.
Food and service are excellent!
My husband and I went for lunch, mid week. We were the only diners in the restaurant. Our food was very good. We ordered wine but they didn’t have what we wanted. We had to ask for bread, which wasn’t warm. The butter was delicious! Onion soup was very good but rather sweet. I ordered the steak frite medium rare, but it was medium. Tasted fine as did the salad and fries. My husband ordered the roast chicken, which was delicious. Portions were large. Couldn’t finish them. We shared chocolate mousse for dessert which I didn’t love. Too sticky, not smooth. Coffee was delicious.
Need two other main courses
In the Caliber of the chicken
Good local spot with excellent rotisserie and service. Desert creme brulee was fantastic. The noise level kept it from being better rated. Would return
We had a disappointing experience. We were a party of 3. While the appetizers were acceptable, our entrees were not.
The halibut was recommended by our server was inedible as it was overly salty. There was an offer to reorder another item both my the server and the manager; Our friend didn't wish to order anything else. The halibut was deleted from our bill The remaining 2 had the scallops. The preparation of this dish made the scallops rather spongy. The scallops were also oddly cut up rather than served whole. The side dish of carrots were quite overdone bordering on being burnt.
Excellent classic bistro food well prepared and served.
It was unpleasantly warm in dining room; they need to get the air conditioning sorted. The chicken for two was a little overcooked and dry and is a bit overpriced for what it is. The $11 sides likewise struck me as a bit steep. Its a shame because the décor is nice and there is not a lot that is great in the area.
Service very slow and AC not great
They don't have their liquor license yet, so don't be fooled by the list of "cocktails." Otherwise I actually thought the service was a bit TOO attentive, like 3 different people coming over to ask if we wanted another glass of wine. How can they even serve wine without a liquor license. The poulet for 2 was to die for...excellent. Asparagus a bit soggy, but all in all the food was great and I would go back.
We found the place very disorganized. The food went from very good to average but the service really made it less pleasant. i think with better service it would get a higher rating.
What a gem! I had heard good things about LPR, but did not expect such an outstanding experience. The menu is wonderful as well as reasonably priced (escargot $14, grilled oysters $11, poulet for two ($48)), the vibe is warm and French and the food far exceeded expectations. Everything we ordered was top-notch and between the generous pours of wine and the ample servings of chicken, we couldn't fathom trying the desserts. Hoping this place stays in the neighborhood for a long, long time.
This was pretty ridiculous and perhaps the worst service I’ve had in this neighborhood. Brought us the wrong beverages twice. Took 45 minutes to get our drinks. Felt like a waste of our time. We spoke to them about it and nothing was done... no apology, full bill (even though they brought us the wrong drinks). And they were sold out of half of their items.
Enjoyed the cardoons! Rare to find them on US menu. Excellent choice for of wines by the glass.
We were so happy to have tried this new spot in the neighborhood - the chicken was outstanding, as were the roasted potatoes. The only disappointment was the roasted carrots dish - it looked beautiful, but the carrots were very undercooked. Otherwise, a great evening and we'll definitely be back.
Food was very good. Service was very attentive. Not very crowded relative to other nearby places on a Sunday late morning / noon.
The chicken fantastic.
The French onion soup very rich n hot.
The halibut very small portion especially for $$.
Beet salad very good.
Cocktails provided were tasteless; not a true “bar”; wine and beer and drinks made with wine/vermouth/bitters...a disappointment and not advertised.
Service was terrible. Food was delivered a good 75 mins after seated. Received apology. Then received another apology and offer for free addl drink although I didn’t like my drink anyway! So why did guest get a free cocktail but I didn’t get my drink credited?! And why weren’t we accommodated for such a long wait?! Many guests came and went after us?!
Although I know a couple people who work there I’m very disappointed and not sure if I will return although I come to nyc about once a month.
Really sad because I was so excited and knowing a couple people here and didn’t even get a response thru Open Table nor IG. I’m either loyal or I’m not. Guess I’m no longer not in this case. Sad.
Great to have a really good French restaurant in the hood.
The food was delicious. Our group had the duck and the creole roast chicken. We ate every bite!
The wine list is superb, the appetizers appetizing, however the issues begin with the entrees. I ordered the monk fish and was warned that due to portion size I should order a side. I chose the haricots vert. Yes, the monk fish entree was an appetizer portion and mixed in with the haricots vert were merely mortal string beans. I did finish my one piece of bread, which while delicious, was not sufficient. In short, I felt as if the establishment is on a rather tight budget as opposed to satisfying their patrons hunger.
A great addition to the UWS great food and they have corkage.
Entrees were excellent, skate and chicken. Fried oysters were very good as were schmaltz potatoes. Béchamel sauce overwhelmed mussels. Nice selection of mushrooms but too salty. Service was quite good. Very nice wine selection. But dessert was the problem! Only three choices to start with. One was not available and they ran out of the mousse.That left only the bread pudding. They did not have ordinary( e.g.English breakfast) tea.
3rd time there and my least favorite. The chicken is still great but the sides were too heavily spiced and they all tasted similar. The waiter was terrible this time, seemed like he came straight from Shake Shack. Very disappointed.
Great food! Quality service!
Went to Le Petit Rooster for the first time for lunch this past Thursday. Le Petit Rooster opened up just a couple of months ago. A very pleasant place. I was greeted warmly and the menu and the food were authentically French, very well presented, and quite good. It's a new restaurant and the staff seemed a little disorganized, but let's mark that down to the learning curve for a place just starting out.
So happy to have such a great new restaurant in the neighborhood. The food was amazing. From the raclette croquettes, to the full roasted chicken to the parisienne gnocchi, everything was delicious. And the restaurant itself was beautiful. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Lovely setting and decor. Friendly staff. Lunch was very good.
Wine prices are high.
Best on uws
Why is it such a secret
We tried today the brunch menu.
It reached our expectation! as great as the evening menu.
i will definitely go back for brunch
Bartender took care of us. Just perfect service. Attentive, genuinely good!
The food was lovely and the wonderful staff made great recommendations. Would definitely recommend.
The place isn't stylish or exactly welcoming but the whole chicken is really quite good: it serves far more than two and provided the basis for an excellent second meal at home. Not a lot of other options on the menu, however.
My first experience was so good, but this visit was really bad. Server was inexperienced to discuss wines, Kitchen was an hour backed up and the staff didn’t check in with us, then they brought extra sides no one wanted which they comped with our drinks OH and the A/C wasn’t working. It was a warm August night.
Excellent food. I will definitely come back.
First time at the restaurant. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and everything we ordered was quite good and well prepared. Would definitely return.
A STUNNING culinary experience. I’m not even joking, this guy has serious talent! Poached leeks in chorizo spices with red onion reduction and egg yoke jelly/melon, strawberry, and citrus soup for appetizers. Then Monk Fish with lentils and duck with blackberry reduction, crispy onions and birds nest carrots. It was all really surprisingly world class food. A taste explosion! No liquor license yet, so only beer and wine and wine cocktails but it’s coming!
The kitchen consistently turns our excellent food and the wine list is well chosen and fairly priced, but for me to go back again they need to get their act together on the floor. And the music is all wrong for the location, atmosphere and age of the clientele. They’re so close to being one of the top food destinations on the upper west side and notable in Manhattan but the management and service out front are blowing it. I want to see them succeed. there are so few restaurants with excellent food on the UWS. The chef is doing his job consistently and is to be commended! Please pull the dining room and service together!!
Although the name would suggest that they are mostly focused on fowl, which we had on a previous visit and enjoyed a lot, the fish and pastas are also excellent. We really liked the shrimp, and the halibut. Appetizers are also good. The wine list is a bit thin but good selections are available.
We were excited to try the restaurant, and we are so glad we did, very nice vibe comfortable setting, and knowledgeable staff.
Food was delicious...I had the beet salad, Husband had Foie gras, we both went for the roasted chicken..and shared the bread pudding..it was a wonderful experience..we will be back!!
Brined chicken was plenty for two. Juicy and crispy skin cooked to perfection. The au jus was a real treat to dip into for even more flavor. Asparagus side had a nice bite and expertly cooked. Potatoes were the only blah brought to the table. Not roasted properly and were oily. Service was fantastic. Waiter was prompt, courteous and made us feel welcome. The setting and decor are lovely. Will definitely return and dig deeper into the menu. Portions are plentiful.
