Bienvenue to the world’s fanciest fried chicken joint. Bar Poulet is where upscale dining meets guilty pleasure — redefining your classic bucket of fried chicken with a glass of authentic French bubbly. Yeah, it’s a thing. Like Gwen and Blake — unexpected, but pretty perfect.

Deliciously crispy-yet-juicy pieces of white and dark meat pair with elevated-yet-classic sides and a menu of badass libations, including our fabulous bubbly, a 100% French wine list, inspired cocktail menu and serious beer list.

Whether you take it home, or hang out here, Bar Poulet lets you enjoy the finer things in life without taking them so seriously.

Completely empty on a Sunday afternoon. Automatic 20% gratuity. Service overly attentive and uncoordinated- asked to order by two people, awkward silence standing by our table. Food generally good and different. Fried mushrooms very good. Honey sauce delicious but sweet. You really need less sauce and more variety. Eggs were star.

Hate to say we went to another restaurant bar with an hour for better drinks and atmosphere. Wouldn’t come back. One and done.

Drinks - great: cocktails to start were beautiful, inventive, and not too sweet. Bubbly was delicious and we also enjoyed a new-to-us whiskey with dessert.

Food - great: The chicken was mouthwatering (if you like thick, crispy breading you'll be delighted) and sauces excellent. The soup of the day (butternut squash) was a sleeper hit.

Food - good: deviled eggs had great flavor but were very stiff/ice cold from the fridge. Sides were solid but not standouts.

Ambiance/service - fun atmosphere, lively without being deafening. Compliant with vaxx rules. Service was very attentive if a bit rushed, as we had to guard our glasses and plates lest they be cleared while we still had a few bites or sips left! However not a big deal overall and we would happily recommend to others.

Some of the most incredible service I have received in the Philadelphia area! The food was also different and special - not anything I could make at home :) had such a lovely time and will definitely return for dessert and drinks one day because we were too full for dessert at the end of the meal!!

We have been 3 times and our server has always been Devon, he is amazing. Service is wonderful.

They need to get bigger tables. We would order more but have learned to manage to the small table size.

Wish they would monitor Covid, while they did check our vaccine cards, would have liked to have been 6ft away from the tables next to us and we were not…

I went for my first time on a quiet Monday night, and was very pleased with my dinner experience. The food, drinks & service were all great. I was pleasantly surprised by just how perfectly juicy and flavorful the chicken is. I was also very pleased with the variety of cocktails and sparkling wines available. This is definitely going to be one of my go-to restaurants for a weeknight dinner. I ordered the chicken, brussel sprouts, deviled eggs, and mash potatoes, everything was delicious.

The renovation is beautiful and the fried chicken was the best I’ve had. Delicious sides, and the black pepper lavender honey on the chicken was off the hook. Very nice wine and cocktail list and the staff were a delight. We are already planning a return trip to sit at the beautiful bar and check out some cheeses. Almost forgot the banana creme brûlée. ❤️

Our server, Devon, was quite rude and ignored our questions. All he did was rattle off specials and what was on the menu, what sauces were and the sides. We hated the sparkling wine he suggested, but refused to make it right. Then he was non-existent the rest of the evening and for some reason he would only speak to my husband and not me. It was if he hated women. We did enjoy a new server who had been there one week, she helped us through our dinner and seemed to love her new job.

The chicken is extremely salty. We had to tone down the salt with a sauce. I would not suggest it, ever. We only enjoyed the cauliflower. To top it off, they make you pay your horrible server a mandatory 20% tip and then ask for an additional tip on top of that on the receipt. No thanks. Won’t return.
