The food was delicious, the service was topnotch, and we loved the ambiance. The European flair plus the chic shabby look was charming. We will definitely will be back for more and will tell friends and family to come as well.

The food and service was exceptional and definitely will warrant a return visit VERY soon! This was our first experience with Le Sel Bistro and our brunch was as close to perfect as you can get and made us even more excited to try dinner at Le Sel some time in the near future! 10/10

Great restaurant, think we found our new special occasion spot. The food was marvelous, my wife had the filet and I had the chicken. Its hard to say which was better. They had blankets in the outdoor seating and brought another heater out as it got colder. Marvelous experience.

From the moment I walked in I was warmly greeted and throughout my experience the whole staff was helpful and attentive. The food was phenomenal! Had the lamb chops and soho salmon, both very good and their cream of mushroom is sublime. Loved the atmosphere and vibe of the outdoor patio, made the space feel not only warm and cozy but beautifully decorated and dreamy. Loved my experience, I will be returning.

Everything was great, from the food to the service, ambience, etc. I do wish to convey that it was discouraging to bring one of my staff members and to have us both observe the kitchen staff without masks on and the host to be putting her mask on upon arrival. I know that if I'd arrived with an elder they probably would not have been comfortable staying. Also, the governor's orders extend to outdoor dining with a limitation of outdoor tent walls to be limited to 2 sides or 3 if there is adequate fresh air flow. Your establishment is lovely and I hope to come again by with these few details it would limit whom I bring to accompany me.
