Had great service, delicious food and wine. Was unusually noisy that evening, but normally it’s perfect
A small restaurant a few blocks from the Citicorp building. Sit upstairs for a leisurely meal. My entire group raved about the food! More than made up for the plain decor — I cannot wait to go back for the ricotta balls and the zucchini walnut pancakes!
Tiny place with fantastic food
Great service. Perfect place for a drink and conversation
I like not only good tapas foods but also reasonable wine with friendly services. I recommend you book here if you look for a wine bar. I believe you'll definitely be satisfied with great food/drinks and atmosphere.
Great food and service! Unless many places on the UES, this restaurant actually allows you to have a conversation with your friends (perfect noise level).
Always a perfect spot for a date, I absolutely love coming here.
We truly enjoy our visits here. The food is delicious and inventive. The wine selection is good and the service is the best. Our young lady who attended to our bar table was exceptional. She was caring, attentive, a good listener and gave sound menu advice. We were not disappointed and we left very happy and contented. We definitely will make our next visit soon. Worth it and the attentive staff is one of the best.
Delicious food, attentive service, great drinks. Tuna tartare and angry shrimp are a must!
a neighborhood gem for a quick bite or longer, friendly get together, you definitely come back for more
Ambience and service is first rate. Ate upstairs by the open windows and was very well looked after. Thereafter however it was pretty disappointing. Ordered squid which was OK except for the poor presentation - the squid was sliced and chucked on the plate and almost completely covered up by a pile of lettuces which had been dumped on top of it - not the end of the world and it tasted OK - but not necessary. White wine was OK. Red wine was a problem. It came very warm basically room temp (which was probably 78-80 as it was a pleasant evening and the windows were open) - have noted this complaint on other reviews but ignored it at my peril. I asked if they had something else at a better temp and the next glass arrived chilled which was not really what I was looking for either but was prepared to live with. The problem then was the wine was pretty unpleasant - they showed me the bottle which was basically a 'generic' French pinot noir - probably worth under $10 in a store, which while I appreciate you dont get a lot for $14 a glass in NYC was still stretching it. I tried another Red (cannot remember which) which was equally rough so I left after the squid and had my entree in another restaurant.
very nice cozy restaurant with a friendly staff and good food
Interesting dishes and a nice selection of wines by the glass. We happened to be there on a night when the windows were wide open upstairs and it was very pleasant. A good choice for interesting food in the neighborhood.
This was our first time at Piere Loti. I thought of taking my boyfriend there for his birthday because they filmed there for Mr Robot and he's a big fan. It was more like a simple idea and the restaurant looked good.
The food was great and the waiters were lovely. And overall I got a great vibe from the whole experience and would definitely be back soon.
Very good would definitely go back Very close to our house
First visit at Pierrre Lotti and it was great. Can't wait to visit again. Food was great and service was exceptional. The waitress was very accommodating.
Pierre Loti was a great experience. We had top quality cheese and wine, a gorgeous view of the neighborhood, magnificent ambientation and superb attention. We totally recomend this place. If we ever visit NY again, we'll have another dinner there!
What a great little place! Great food, good wine, and a terrific location for me! We sat outside, which was very nice, the Loti label Rose was good, and the food was delish. One day I'll try sitting upstairs...
I come regularly to NYC for work and always try to stop at this restaurant for dinner. Something that makes this place so nice is the hospitality from the owner. He goes beyond his limits to please his customers to their satisfaction. Don't miss the Turkish mermelade made of roses. It is unique... The food in general is good and prices are reasonable for NYC. The wine list offers some interesting wines from Turkey. I highly recommend this place for both locals and visitors.
It's a quiet, very cozy place. Food was very tasty and the service is great. Happy Hour selection included some food. Will definetely return.
Wonderful service by the owner and his family backed up with a great collection of food choices. Look forward to returning!
The service and the space are great but all the dishes were mildly disappointing. The truffle deviled eggs just tasted like onion and no truffle. The risotto balls only tasted fried with no creaminess or cheese flavor coming through. The real disappointment was the dumpling dish. No good flavor and pretty instant heartburn. They are so nice there and have great wines so the food was even more disappointing as I had hoped to love it.
I came here with friends visiting from the UK, and I selected it based off internet recommendations. Though the service was friendly, and it was run by a family, the upstairs seating seemed cramped and it was extremely noisy - to the extent where we could not converse with one another. There was also a rather long wait for food.
Overall, I came away disappointed from the experience, despite having good expectations going into the meal.
Great small and intimate atmosphere. Overall food was pretty good and service was very friendly. Risotto balls were a favorite!
Great place to do a tapas-style meal. Lots of meat, cheese, vegetarian options. Basically Turkish food. If you're lucky on a nice day, you get a table on the street. Terrific service; very friendly staff.
Lovely! Small place, small plates. Delicious food and perfect portions. Excellent service and recommendations. Many more things we want to try. Sidewalk tables. The cheeses are as amazing as the chocolate!
Intimate neighborhood wine bar. Great for a casual get together. The place is relatively small so if you have a party over 6, it might get tight.
We had a lively group of six and were also hushed by some of the other patrons.
In general the food was good. My only critic is that the red wine temperature is not kept in the right one. The one we asked was hot. For a place that takes wine tasting seriously this is a detail not to omit.
Charming little place hidden off to the side.
Open late and night and a delightful diversion from the large crowded places
Even has limited outdoors seating on a quiet block
Small place, but a real treasure. The food was good and reasonably priced. We had 6 plates between 3 people, and we were all stuffed. Didn't try the wine, but the grapefruit beer was amazing.
I came here for my birthday and the food was sooo good, especially for the price! The service was a little slow, but the manager came out and was very attentive to our table, and told us about how it's a family-run restaurant. It was a really cute, and so affordable for delicious tapas. I definitely recommend.
Great evening at this wine bar. We enjoyed the happy hour Chianti with a well portioned tasty cheese platter and bread with olive oil. The servers and chef were very friendly and helpful in offering recommendations. I will be returning. Thank you.
Great service in a nice quiet setting. There was a happy hour and pretty good food.
We stayed in the bar area on the first floor and had tapas and entrees. Everything - red meat and seafood was over cooked. Presentation was poor.
Everything was wonderful and I will certainly go back. It would be nice if they added a winter storm door to the entrance. Every time the door opens there is a blast of cold air.
This place is absolutely charming. The hot tapas were delicious! I wished that I ordered more. I had the chicken brochette and my friend ordered the lamp chops. Both were wonderful. We left the choosing of the wines with our waitress, and we loved what she chose for us. We also let her choose the chocolates for us, and it was a marvelous experience as well. We are planning to go back to experience more of the food.
The wine flights are a great option
A very welcoming atmosphere. Terrific service and amazing food. The tuna tartar was perfect. Scallops were ok. Turkish pasta dish out of this world. Ambiance was great and the server made us feel very welcome and really impressed us. Definitely will go back next time we are in NY.
Pierre Loti was an excellent choice for am intimate evening with excellent wine and food. The service was also outstanding.
