What a lovely restaurant. The seating in the garden area is perfect as summer weather arrives. Staff was attentive and friendly, the food delicious, and the atmosphere makes the evening feel special. Of note, the dinner menu is pricey. I can’t wait to have brunch there next.

Le Sel Bistro was a wonderful dining experience this past weekend. We took some friends there for dinner. Every single item ordered from appetizer to dessert was AMAZING. There were some initial issues with our reservation, which they had to move a half hour later; however, they comped our desserts to make up for it., AND it ended up really being worth the wait as the ambiance was so great and food, like I said, AMAZING. Thank you to the the staff at Le Sel Bistro! We had a great time! We're so glad we found this spot, we will definitely be back!

The decor is bohemian chic, I love the play on warmth and modernity that is set off inside. The service was impeccable from the time I was seated (no wait time with my reservation) to the table service, timing was on point. The dishes were absolutely delicious. I’m super impressed with how well Le Sel managed the guest experience and nailed the meal too. Especially right now! So many restaurants are struggling to get their groove back, understandably so, but Le Sel hasn’t skipped a beat.

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.
