                                                  Kale salad with avocado, carrots, pomegranate seeds with perfectly cooked chicken. So flavorful. I’m trying to recreate it at home but not the same. My associates had other salads which were equally as good. We are until there was no more. Esdy business conversation place. Not loud like others.

                                                  Ambience was a bit odd, restaurant was almost completely empty until 7:30pm and there seemed to be too many employees on the floor. Because it is right next to a hotel there were a lot of patrons in business meetings and working on their laptops, music could be more interesting to fill up some of the quiet. Food was ok, ordered the steak medium rare but it was medium well. Restaurant was adequate, best part is its location.

                                                  Delightful surprise right in my work neighborhood. I was looking for a place to have lunch with a friend and Le Petit Poulet was perfect. The food was delicious, the service great and the noise level low so we could enjoy our conversation. Highly recommend.

                                                  This is a very nice French brasserie just a couple blocks from MSG. We enjoyed our food very much. I loved the French Onion soup! I had mussels and frites and my husband had the chicken and both were delicious with generous servings.

                                                  Food was average, my eggs were over cooked. Portions were large though. The coffee was just ok nothing great about it.

                                                  Overpriced for mediocre food. we ordered the smoked salmon with cream cheese on a bagel and the menu had also listed that it came with capers. When we asked about the absence of the capers, the server came back and said that they had run out. No apology. No offer of anything else.

                                                  Very good quality of food. No waiting, may be a little bit speed. We booked a table for thanksgiving and it was a wonderful experience.

                                                  Exceptionally courteous and considerate service. Never a feeling of being rushed. The restaurant is fairly quiet and the food is well prepared and very fresh.

                                                  Visited NYC to see Trevor Noah and stayed at the Radisson Hotel, where the restaurant is located, a five minute walk to Madison Square Garden. We decided to eat at Petit Poulet for convenience. The service was very good, the food - french onion soup, a burger and one of the day's specials, spaghetti with bolognese sauce, was spot on. The soup was not too salty as french onion soup can sometimes be and it was topped with gruyere cheese. The burger I really can't comment on because my partner ate it so quickly I didn't even get a bite. My curly spaghetti was made with a white bolognese sauce, which was quite spicy and a dish I would definitely order again. We passed on dessert so I can't comment, however, from what I could tell they looked delicious.

                                                  Going to a late 9:30pm tip-off for University of Kentucky basketball game. Perfect bistro setting for a leisurely dinner before heading to The Garden. Will go back when in that neighborhood even if not going to a game. Menu was simple with a nice variety of choices at multiple price points.

                                                  A nice little find not too far from Penn Station. The maitre d' was very welcoming and the servers were quite attentive. Prices were reasonable for midtown Manhattan. We both had hangar steak and fries and enjoyed the meal. I have no complaints, and I'll certainly be returning.

                                                  We made a last minute reservation on Friday night for my family of 4. The service was wonderful from beginning to end. If I could change one thing, I must say that the charcuterie, though delicious was not great dollar value. I'm a Chef and am greatly aware of cost. The main courses were all plentiful and delicious! We did not have dessert. Would return and recommend.

                                                  We went to Petit Poulet on the recomendation of our hotel concierge. The restaurant and it's menu looked inviting upon arrival. The noise level made conversation with my wife difficult. I ordered Hanger steak frets and found the steak very tough and over-cooked. The fries were perfect! My wife ordered escargot and mussels. The escargot were good but tiny. The mussels good but very small.

                                                  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.

                                                  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.
