Very friendly service, just plan on a longer stay than usual - they follow the French tradition of unhurried dining!
Food was excellent, nice wine list.
A gem in a generally gastro-lousy neighborhood. Our favorite before any event at MSG.
Excellent all around. Nice menus, terrific service.
This restaurant is quite the find. My sister in law first introduced me to this place a few years ago and I've been a regular patron ever since. Thank you Petit Poulet!
Nice surprise to find a cloth napkin restaurant on a street lined with sports bars and other beer 🍺 joints. The food was good, service was fine and the ambiance pleasant at (for midtown Manhattan passes as) a reasonable price. We feel we got value for our money and a memorable experience too. I’d be happy to go back to try other items on their menu.
Disappointing- standards seem to have fallen. One of the wines and some of the earlier dishes were not available. Dessert menu card not available. Overall underwhelming
Our company recently moved into the Herald Square neighborhood and I have had the opportunity to sample a number of the nearby restaurant. I had passed Petit Poulet several times so decided to try it. I was not disappointed. My colleague and I shared a delicious salad and she had the muscles while I ordered the roast chicken. Both were very good. The restaurant serves breakfast, which I would like to try, and then features an all-day menu. Prices are fair and I would raise my rating one star higher for value at dinnertime. The service was friendly and attentive, and the low noise level, at least at lunch, was a welcome change from so many restaurants these days.
The menu was Completely Different from that shown on website via Otable. Please institute a firm policy of restaurants updating their websites immediately if they’re going to lure us with their food. This has happened before but the changes appeared significant and we didn’t enjoy the experience as much as we expected.
Aside—- I expect full menus and Pricing from Otable. Please institute this requirement. These are the very first parameters diners look for. I will not go to a restaurant without knowing how much it will roughly cost me.
Lovely time. Great service. I eat here regularly.
Excellent service! A+ food and prices are very fair! It was overall a great experience! Definitely not a one-time visit!
Excellent rotisserie chicken and pommels purees. I will return. However, I was incredibly disappointed that the coq au vin was discontinued from the menu — a dish that would have turned an excellent dinner into a near-perfect one.
My go to restaurant near herald square and penn station. Quiet. Good ambience and service. Small menu but food is very good and they are very accommodating.
We arrived at 6:15 and although I requested a quiet table, we were seated under a speaker. Not to worry; the host promptly turned the speaker off in our location when requested and we were able to enjoy a lovely dinner. The server was attentive, wonderful and timed everything perfectly. I've taken a few friends to Le Petit Poulet and will continue to introduce more to this little gem of a restaurant. Thank you!
This used to be our go to place. We haven't been there in 6 months and went back for an early date night.
The prices have gone up 35% for essentially the same steak, they don't give you a salad anymore with your $38.00. which used to be $24.95
The place was empty when we got there. We sat at our favorite table in the corner. It took 5 minutes for the server to come over. He was not friendly at all very cold and not talkative.
The service was just bad, since no one was in there, no one was walking around. I had to ask for bread twice, water, wine it was probably the worst service we have had there in 20+ visits.
Other than the cost of the food, it was the same as before, good, not great but good.
We came with a group and was treated with grace and kindness. The food was delicious and they were very accommodating. Thank you!
Petit Poulet has a great location near Penn Station and walking distance to Times Square. We wanted French food and the prices were reasonable and reviews were great. I made a reservation on Open Table before we went and they sat us right away. The server was great. He made sure our questions were answered and checked back on us. The water was refilled without us asking. However, the food was not good. The burger was not fresh (it was from a frozen patty). The chicken in the tartine poulet was dry (the rest of it was good), and the tart lyon was a flatbread (pizza without sauce), which was not what we expected. I wouldn't come here for the food. It was just not what we expected.
The food and the service were really excellent and professional. However, it was apparent that the restaurant is either under new management or have restructured their business model. Looking at the menu, we saw that the prices have gone up significantly since we last dined here. Having stated that, the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared. However, there was a manager on duty and he was overheard haranguing the bread basket-busboy, the waiters and the kitchen staff. These interactions clearly made them uncomfortable and affected the overall mood of the dining room. Interactions between management and staff should be seamless and the guests should not be aware of any conflicts.
Menu was different than online. Service was rude. We paid $10 for our sparkling water and then left. It was empty for a clear reason. I live in the area and had wanted to check it out - will never go back and not will my neighbor who was with me.
The menu was very limited and not creative. The service was so-so.
Under new management and menu changed. They did not update the website with new menu which was very limited. Asked for decaf coffee which turned out to be espresso with milk since they didn't have regular coffee!!!!
Still a very good place with great service. The new menu is very limited and too scaled back on what remains. I hope it expands and that soup of the day and specials return.
We so enjoyed our dining experience on
Sunday night. The atmosphere was perfect and we loved the salmon entree.
The crudités for a starter was a pleasant surprise and the green bean salad rounded out a wonderful dinner. Service was very attentive and friendly.the wine by glass was perfect. We would definitely return and refer friends.
Lovely restaurant/bar convenient to Penn Station and Herald Square. Food was extremely good and well presented. My fiance loved the onion soup and mussels. Daughter was so pleased with the chicken, which was delicious with an ample serving. I enjoyed my salmon, cooked to perfection. Service was excellent as well with waitstaff eager to please. Definitely worth a revisit.
The only reason I’m giving this 2 stars is because my server/bartender Mario did his best to salvage the night. The wait for my food was ridiculous - almost 20 mins for my appetizer and an hour for my entree. I saw him go talk to the chef multiple times about my order, and he was nice enough to comp my meal and dessert. However, the food wasn’t really worth the wait - mediocre at best. If Mario hasn’t been there. I would’ve walked out.
New menu with great food and service. Nice to see a change and happy for great food.
It has been a gem in the neighborhood a go to for meeting friends near penn station
food service always good...but went yesterday for dinner and they have changed menu taking away a lot of favorites...bring them back!
The menu has a variety of nice options. Oysters and Salmon were very good. The service was a bit slow especially on a very quite night.
We enjoyed a quiet, delicious dinner at Petit Poulet after a busy day of sightseeing. The restaurant was conveniently located near our midtown hotel, and is around the corner from the Empire State building. It offers a range of French dishes. The food was fresh, savory and prepared with care. A real treat for the tastebuds! We can highly recommend the vegan ravioli and the chicken in puff pastry. The vegetable sides we ordered were perfectly cooked with just the right amount of bite. The nutella and banana crepe is a delicious way to end the meal if you have a sweet tooth. It was garnished with a lovely ripe strawberry cut to look like a rose. Service was excellent, and the atmosphere helps you enjoy the food even more. Highly recommended.
Great meal, as always!
Great food but our waiter disappeared half way through our meal and we had to get check from another waiter.
Unfortunately the dining experience was horrible. We went last year and it was great, but what a difference. The server was horrible, didn't seem to care that we were there and even when we asked questions he didn't respond just stared at us. On top of that the food was practically inedible. So sad this downward slide from just a year ago.
Salad dressing was lovely and the service was wonderful!
We were very disappointed this time at petit poulet. We were wondering if the management has changed and the food is no longer as good as before. We ordered beef bourguignon—a major mistake! The meager dish was served in a shallow dish with pappardelle. The beef chunks were small and dried up. The sauce was soupy and flavorless. Vegetables were in tiny dice—almost invisible and no taste. The “soup” was too thin and it tasted like canned product. Rotisserie chicken was a bit dried and bony. The French string beans that served with chicken were hard and not cooked enough. And of course the waiter knocked over a water glass next to us with the shattered glasses flying all over me and over the table —it was no fun.
The service was impeccable and the food was authentic and so beautifully prepared. A gorgeous dining room in mid Manhattan
The food is absolutely delicious. I felt transported back to a sidewalk cafe in Paris, just with more construction (thanks NYC) The quiche Lorraine and Beef Bourguignon were my favorites. I will definitely be coming back when in town.
I was looking for a restaurant near Penn Station as we were meeting friends for dinner who were going to need to get on a train afterwards. I found Petit Poulet on Open Table. We had an excellent meal. I would go back there again in a flash.
My sister and I loved this restaurant! Our top three in ALL of New York. Just go‼️
Waiter was VERY rude. I ordered a wine and he kept telling me the price of it, which I didn’t ask for.
The wine list was very good and the waiter had some great suggestions. But unfortunately that’s as good as it got. The food was dry and bland (I had a beef bourguignon which came with no sauce whatsoever!) and overpriced.
Overall we had 2 bottles of wine, shared starters and had 3 mains between 3 of us which came to almost $400 - steep for disappointing food paired with decent wine on a Monday.
Lovely first impression. Good wine list. Disappointed with choice of cheeses on platter. Beautifully plated, but two choices not available. Same with dessert menu. Choice not available. No offer of coffee refill.
