Mediterranean

Named after the turn-of-the-century French novelist, Pierre Loti Union Square offers an extensive menu of European wines. French varietals dominate the offerings, but the selection includes a healthy mix of other regions and grapes (Austria, Italy, and even Turkey make appearances). There are daily pocket-friendly specials, and each pour comes with a little extra in a fancy carafe. The wine-friendly food menu includes an impressive choice of cheeses and small plates ranging from Mediterranean dips, salads and a delectable choice of chocolates for dessert. Vibe-wise, the ultra-dim lighting ensures the place stays rife with snuggly couples as well as groups of friends looking for an enjoyable night out.

    I come here for the mulled wine and baked camembert, it's so good! Heated outdoor tables are cozy. Waited a long time for the check but otherwise perfect.

    Pierre Loti has turned pandemic outdoor dining into a triumph. It was on the forefront of solving the problem of eating out, and they have nailed it! This is not high cuisine, and that is not the point. Being on Irving Place probably was an advantage, but they took it. I am happy to eat and drink there every time.

    The good: Service was very friendly, but slow. Drinks were generous. Food was delicious. The bruschetta, baked Camembert and Turkish meatballs were favorites. Room was cute, cozy. A nice place for a date or an evening with friends. The not-so-good: The AC was barely working and it was a super hot night. Apparently, their dishwasher didn’t show up because there were ever-growing piles of dirty dishes at the kitchen window next to our table. The selection of pâtés and several other items shown on their online menu was not available. I would definitely try again, on a cooler evening.

    The mojito needs work! I'm sure there was enough alcohol in it, but it needed much more mint, sugar, and I'm not sure they even used rum (?) The Mushroom Truffle pizza is OUTSTANDING!!! But, it says $13 on the website, and then we were charged $17 (!) The service is wonderful.

    - The Panini, uncooked and not toasted, just go pick one up at Starbucks next time - The Pizza, Digorno’s lesser know younger brother, pepperonis less spicy than whole milk - The Red Pepper Pita, fire, good job. - The Bruschetta, top notch but no one goes to dinner in 3s

    This was the perfect spot for drinks and pre-theatre bites. The service was attentive, the outdoor seating charming and comfortable and the food and drinks were of great quality and value. The indoor area looks like a wonderful spot for a post-theatre drink or meal or a cozy winter interlude.

    Went with a group of three friends and we split two bottles of wine and ordered the baked Camembert, the bruschetta, the beet salad, and a few cheeses to share. Everything was pretty good and the heat lamps kept us from getting too cold. I wish our server could describe the wines a little bit better when we asked for his advice.

    We dined indoors; there was only one other couple in the interior of the restaurant. Many diners were seated outdoors. The mulled wine was very sweet - the server did their best to help us make it less sweet, but alas it remained saccharine and unpalatable. The bruschetta were loaded and a good deal in terms of volume.

    Cute wine bar ambiance but would definitely benefit from a more extensive wine list. Food is quite alright but nothing to write home about, per se. Cozy spot to catch up with a friend over a drink but perhaps not a dinner destination

    I had a great dining experience at Pierre Loti Union Square. They currently have a nice selection of tables both inside and outside. I chose to sit indoors - as the room is so beautiful. I started with two of the spreads - the classic hummus plus the red pepper version. Both were amazing. I then had the salmon served over salad - it was a generous portion and the fish was cooked to perfection. I finished with the chocolate plate, and my server even made me a cup of black tea. The prices were most reasonable and the service was outstanding.

    I would recommend Pierre Loti for after-work drinks or a meal. The Truffle Mushroom pizza that I ordered was burnt, but luckily it tasted good as long as I didn't eat the crust. The kale salad that my friend had was filling and a well portioned sized salad. They have a vast wine selection and outdoor seating making it a cute neighborhood gem. The service was a bit slow, but otherwise, it was a good quality night.

    Had lunch with a mentor I had not seen in over a year. We sat outside and were able to catch up while enjoying a delicious meal. My friend had the menemen and manti and said it reminded her of her trip to Turkey. I had the caprese salad and mushroom truffle ravioli and would have it again. Cannot wait to go back. The server was super attentive and helpful.

    They clearly did not reserve a 2-person table for me, as requested. But we ended up in the center of the room at a big wine barrel table that is probably meant for standing or larger groups. So, all good!

    I’ve been here before and have always enjoyed it. Went in last night and ordered a big charcuterie plate to start. Unfortunately half way through my boyfriend didn’t feel well so we asked to have it wrapped up and for the check. When we got home, I noticed they didn’t include the pita or the bread, just the meats and cheeses. Extremely disappointed bc that’s part of the meal I paid for and we also now had nothing to eat the meat and cheese with!
