Petit Poulet Ratings and Reviews
Another delicious meal at Petit Poulet. The chicken in puff pastry and the roasted Cornish game hen were absolutely delicious, and our waiter, Byron, was charming and attentive. This place is comfortable and warm, and the food--French bistro fare--is excellent.
It is not an authentic French resturant but mainly American dining with a vague French flair. Food was acceptable and fair value. Service was average , no complaints when it appeared. Major complaint is that the resturant was extremely smoky from the kitchen’s cooking to the extent it followed me home as my clothes smelt of Kitchen fat and my eyes had begun to sting. They really need to work on their extractor fans
Excellent, delicious lunch! I chose the two-course business lunch: butternut squash soup to start, and the moules frites - the broth for the mussels was delicious and the french fries cooked just right! My friend had the hummus appetizer which consisted of a huge portion of hummus (could be shared amongst up to 4 pp!) with sauteed mushrooms on top, with side of pita bread points and mini pickles, and kalamata olives - really a meal in and of itself! His chosen entree was he steak frites - again, a generous piece of beef, french fries, and a great mixed garden salad all on the same plate - ! We thoroughly enjoyed all our food choices, and definitely will return!
we always have a great time. sam has taken great care of us on several occasions-- even remembers our past wine selections. he goes above and beyond to provide professional and attentive service.
i have enjoyed at least 5 different menu items for dinner--one better than the last.
Great staff that makes you feel welcome and good table service. Didn't love the onion soup which was too sweet and thick for me, but maybe traditional French. Escargots looked like it was prepped in advance and not much flavor. Good news was I wasn't tempted to dip the bread.
This was our first time dining here and we were not disappointed. We were seated immediately for our 5:30 reservation and given a window seat. The restaurant already had a few guests, but by the time we left around 7:00, it was busy and had gotten louder. Our waiter was very good except he forgot to tell us what the evenings specials were. They have a nice wine and beer selection which should please most people. To start, my wife and I shared a very good, large Cesar salad. My wife then had the duck breast accompanied by hericot verts (not the broccoli rabe on the menu, her request) and roasted potatoes and a pinot noir. I had the beef bourgoignon and a pinot noir. Both of our meals were delicious. This is not a TGI Fridays or a Ruby Tuesday, so it takes a while for the chef to properly prepare your meal. It's not an inordinate amount of time, but if want very good food, then you have to wait for it. We would most definitely dine here again when in NYC and highly recommend it.
It's not so easy to find a pleasing place to eat near Penn Station -- I'm so happy to discover Petite Poulet, thanks to browsing on OpenTable. The restaurant is a quick walk from Penn Station, a pretty and quiet place. My friend and I shared the delicious house salad and Cornish hen (the restaurant's signature dish), plus profiteroles for dessert. Our terrific waiter, Byron, graciously had the kitchen split each dish (always a very appreciated touch). He also gave us a good wine recommendation. We left the restaurant feeling that we'd found a new "go-to" restaurant.
The food was good but not outstanding. The waiter was pushy and rude. We waited a long time to order a drink. The waiter tried to tell us what we wanted for appetizers instead of letting us order what we wanted. When he cleared the appetizer plates, he tossed one diner's knife and fork on the table to be reused, but cleared the others.
The tables were close together and he stood between our table and the one behind talking to the people at that table which meant I could not move without bumping into him. (There was plenty of room to the sides of the table. No need for him to intrude in my space.)
He even came at one point and said he was new and wanted to know how he was doing so far. We did not bother to respond.
We waited so long to ask for the check, we finally asked the maitre d for it and then had to ask him to take the bill for us because the waiter did not come back.
Very odd, unsatisfactory service. So odd, in fact, we did not even bother to mention it to the maitre d (although he must have noticed).
Petit Poulet surpassed our expectation, this was our second time to visit this restaurant both times were wonderful. Our waiter Sammy took great care of us . I had a steak my friend had that evenings fish special we had split a salad. Sammy made an excellent recommendation for our wine.
We found to be a perfect way to remember out dinning experience in New York.
I liked that we were given the option to be seated even when the whole party wasn't there yet. They also accommodated my friend's 10-month old daughter and the restaurant prepared her mashed potato very quick. Our servers were very attentive and there's always water in our glasses. Our dinner was for a birthday celebration and we all enjoyed our meals. For the appetizers, we ordered the escargot, hummus and ceviche. I liked the fluffiness of the hummus and the pita bread was very good! However, we thought that escargot needed more 'oomph' - it was missing something taste-wise. As for the entrees, each of us had a taste of the dishes we ordered. We like the texture of the squid ink linguine, the scallops were cooked perfectly, the cornish hen was very tasty. My friend said the tilapia (as fish of the day) was very good too. For desserts, we had the creme brulee, banana nutella crepe and the chocolate tart - they were all very tasty. I liked that the creme brulee came in three different flavors but after eating the banana nutella crepe, with it's overpowering sweetness, it was hard to taste the creme brulee flavors afterwards. Overall a good dining experience. The host even held the door for all of us as we walked out of the restaurant.
I feel bad hitting them hard because the management was definitely trying to make up for issues with food and service. We waited about 15 minutes before being waited on, even though the restaurant was half empty. Our escargot was ok, though seemed to have sat in the broiler a little too long. I had the shrimp with squid ink linguini, and while the shrimp tasted fresh, the chorizo was dry and tasteless. My wife's beef bourguignion was dry and super salty.
The best part was the manager, who was very apologetic and comped us 20 percent off our meal. They also gave us free champagne and dessert for my wife's birthday. The dessert was actually the best tasting part of the meal.
I didn't think the food was good on my first visit. I decided to give them another try.
I was overcharged for the foie gras appetizer during lunchtime. Branzino did not taste fresh. Not fishy, but frozen fish.
My waiter was very nice though.
I won't be dining here again. The food is really a waste of your money and not worth coming back for. Koreatown is on the other side of the restaurant. Plenty of choices in the neighborhood.
Petit Poulet was a great find for brunch in NYC. The staff was kind and courteous and the meals except one were very good. My wife's was cold upon arrival but they immediately began prepping a new meal for her and when she received it the second time it was perfect. Things happen but it was the way they corrected the problem was impressive.
Monday night and the place has few clients already. It was cozy and well-lighted. Our server was super nice and accomodating. Luis is the name. He was very helpful with wine choices.
Food.. the choices are few but they taste delicious. My friend ordered a burger and I tried their chicken in puff pastry which I loved so much. Wine was good too. We ordered the creme brulee trio for dessert,espresso-chocolate-vanilla.
Our experience over-all was nice. I will definitely come back to try out their cheese. Petit Poulet will definitely be my go-to french bistro.
On a Tuesday night at 6:30 the restaurant was quiet and mostly empty until the party for 12 came in, but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. What was their fault was two steaks, ordered rare and medium rare, which arrived medium rare and medium. The manager was great and comped our desserts, which was indicative of the nice service. We had the hummus appetizer, which I recommend. This is the only French bistro in the area, just a couple blocks from Penn Station, and it appears that it is rarely crowded. Prices are about what you would expect from a French bistro in New York City. It's not bad, but the location is its biggest recommendation.
My first visit and I picked it because I was in the area. Close to public transit. The staff were friendly and helpful because I arrived early. The wine choices were reasonable. My friend had the seafood special and I had the in pastry. We were both pleased with the food and the quiet setting. We arrived early, so the restaurant was filling up by the time we left, but it was large enough and the tables were not on top of each other so that you could enjoy your meal and conversation.
