Awsome French Restaurant – I've become a bit of a fanatic for French food as of recently, so I was eager to try this one out. I really really liked this restaurant because it is unpretentious. The staff was really nice and helpful and, for me, that goes a long way. I don't want to be just another table. That said, the food was great...mainly becuase it was simple. There is nothing worse than food made fancier than it is. It was perfect. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

fantastic winelist – I recently revisited this an old favorite restaurant of mine and I was pleasantly suprised that things were just as wonderful if not better than I remembered. The wine list has been expanded and it was quite tempting just to drink the night away, but I resisted the impulse and ordered a meal. The celery root appetizer special was presented beautifully and was delicious. The steak frites, my favorite, was cooked to perfection, the meat, well seasoned and tender; the frites, delightfully thin and crisp with just the right touch of salt. The service was polite, prompt and attentive. The atmosphere warm and welcoming. I look forward to my next midtown meeting to share this hidden gem of a restaurant with my colleagues. Well Done, Sel et Poivre

I Take Back my Good Review from 2005! – I wrote a good review for Sel et Poivre but I take it back after my friend and I were totally ignored for almost the entire meal on a Saturday afternoon when the place was empty. The waitstaff sat around folding napkins, it took 20 minutes to get a salad (it was lettuce people, on a plate, just lettuce!), and then another 30 minutes at least to get our main course, which should have taken no longer than 10 or 15 minutes to cook. The waiter never came over to see if we wanted anything, we kept having to grab the stray busboy that happened to be walking by if we needed anything, and it was just a very disappointing experience in a place I used to like. Customers should not be neglected just because they come in at an off hour and there are napkins to be folded.

Best Traditional French – This is one of my favorite spots in Midtown. The menu is classic french bistro. I almost always get the onion soup (great) and steak frities, but have had other dishes, which have all been good. Tables by the windows are the best. The service is prompt and the atmosphere is friendly.

Bravo Sel & Poivre

Service was terrible – While the ambiance was very pleasant and the food was good, the service was terrible. There were not many patrons in the restaurant at the time and we never saw our waitress after our orders arrived. She never checked back to see if we needed anything and we had to finally ask for our checks.

Cozy French Bistro with Great Food & Service – My wife and I live in the city and often like to dine out. One of our favorite restaurants is Sel et Poivre. The ambiance is charming, the wait staff is attentive, and the food is consistently excellent. The Prix Fixe dinner is a great value. We enjoy going there and highly recommend it.
