About Pierre Loti Midtown
Each Pierre Loti location has its own unique food menu, however they all share the same wine friendly food made from only the freshest ingredients. Our Mediterranean inspired menus include ingredients handpicked from local producers and farmers markets every morning. Small plates, like tartares and various seasonal salads, are available year-round along with a more substantial menu that changes with the seasons. In addition, all the Pierre Lotis have a varied and extensive cheese and charcuterie list with selections from around the world that can be tailored into a cheese plate to compliment the wine selection. We offer a selection of assorted chocolates and truffles which can also tasted and paired with wines and champagnes.

Pierre Loti Midtown Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The service is very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, for two ladies 5 tapas was enough to fill us up. I was afraid it wouldn't be, but the portions were just right. We were there at 6pm on a Friday night on the upper floor, and it was comfortable to have a conversation. But as the place filled up, it did get noisy and you have to talk really loudly, but that's expected for a small space like that. I would definitely come back again.
This truly was one of the best meals that I've had in awhile. The men who run the restaurant are so welcoming. The waiter and the manager personally introduced themselves and welcomed us to their restaurant. It is a great place for tapas. We ordered the taramasalata, angry shrimp, risotto balls, and bulgar patties. I would order any of them again and cannot wait to take my boyfriend to this neighborhood gem.
The entire staff was terrific and served us promptly and cordially. Wonderful experience here! It is a tight space for a group of even 7 people but they made it work and we will all certainly be back. Make sure to try the house wines during happy hour in addition to the regular wine list.
My wife and I were looking for a "wine bar" that also served food in Manhattan 40's east and we found Pierre Loti. The wine list and price range was extremely good. And the same goes for their food! My wife and I started out with a cheese plate, followed by various tapas plates including 2 lamb chops (with a vegetable potpourri of cheery tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, red peppers and yellow squash) and a Mediterranean chicken dish (2 chicken breasts) whose name I cannot now recall (with a side salad). Endless bread with virgin olive oil dips was also provided. They were all expertly prepared and delicious. The total bill for 4 glasses of wine and the tapas was about $80 (excluding tip). Quite a deal! The two owners were readily available and the woman owner was particularly doting over us to find out how our meal was, if we were happy, and if we needed anything else. My wife and I would highly recommend it and we will return on our next visit to the city.
