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.

    My favorite neighborhood spot for catching up with friends and family over a glass of wine paired with delectable aperitifs. The expanded outdoor seating has added to its already charming ambiance. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Definitely a gem in Gramercy.

    This was our first time eating at Pierre Loti Union Square. I enjoyed the quaint atmosphere and the waitress and waiters were efficient and helpful. The limited menu was necessary because the space is quite small but what was on the menu was very filling and our choices, including the mushroom pizza, was quite good. The crowd was mixed young and old and seemed to know the place, so I figured it has a lot of repeat customers. I will return when back in the neighborhood, appreciated that I found a new affordable place to relax and simple food to enjoy.

    Delicious food, pleasant atmosphere, personable but slow service. The restaurant is hard to find because it is down a short flight of stairs; the name in the window is not immediately noticeable. But it's worth looking for. The menu is not as varied as the Midtown Pierre Loti's, but the food is delicious and with ample portions.

    Our meal was decent except my salmon was over-cooked. Our waiter was slow and not very friendly. The bus person was great. We liked the atmosphere, but it was not up to our standards overall.

    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.
