Description: Pierre Loti's Chelsea location is outfitted much like its Irving Place sister spot, with a vaguely Turkish vibe and quaint outdoor seating in front. The long space has minimal decoration, with the exception of two star-shaped mirrors adorning the walls, and one long cushion with tables lined in front. The menu is studded with wine-friendly bites and cheeses, but there are also eclectic options like stuffed sardines and bulgur patties . There's a servicable entree list which includes a tasty pan-seared jumbo sea scallops with sauteed asparagus. The winelist offers about 70 bottles, 20 of which are also available by the glass.

“Delightful dinner before show at the Joyce! Will come again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

YUM! That's how our meal started out with the Galata - a delicious vodka martini type drink that is really one of the best "new" drinks I've had in a long time. I'll go back again just for this.

We started with the Hummus, which was basic and good, and the Tuna Tartare that was "like butta"! Really high quality tuna over a delicious and fresh avocado mousse. I'll order that again too! There were 3 of us and for main courses we ordered the Grilled Shrimp, Penne and Quail. All of the entrees were good, maybe not AS good as the tapas but plentiful, fresh and filling. We also had the Arugula Salad which was terrific.

We ate early to get to our show on time, so the restaurant was not crowded. Service was friendly and fine, they gave us our space, and our check quickly when we needed to go. It's an adorable little place and the table we had by the window was comfortable and fun for a little people watching.

Delightful experience, we will return next time we're in the city!

“Cute”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Cute place. Not as trendy as other nyc spots at the same price point. Decent food, not amazing though. A little romantic and quiet for dinner with friends.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I went here with a friend and we shared 3 dishes. We had the tuna tartare and the zucchini pancakes which were delicious. We also shared the Turkish dumplings on a recommendation I saw online. It was not what we were expecting and it was not our favorite but it seemed like an authentic dish. The wine was delicious and overall it was a positive atmosphere and my water class never emptied which I always consider a sign of good service.

“Great food and ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I was a bit late for my reservation, and the restaurant was very full, so there was some confusion when I was seated, but the rest of my evening was divine! The dining room/bar area is beautifully lit and decorated, and the food was delicious! I had the grilled shrimp. I would definitely recommend Pierre Loti to solo diners or couples, although they do have room in the back for groups.

“Great Place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We were met by a very friendly hostess and seated promptly. A nice cozy atmosphere with moderate energy. The service started a bit slow as only one waiter on our side of the restaurant though he was very friendly. Enjoy a Tapas style dinner or go for 1 of the many entrees they have. A wide and varied menu and a pretty decent, reasonable wine list.
