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 real... view more

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 pe... view more

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 minu... view more

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.\r 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.

Save your money!

I went to Sel et Poivre for lunch this past weekend, and was anything but impressed. The restaurant was practically empty (which should have been the first sign on a Saturday afternoon), so we thought we'd enjoy a lovely intimate meal. Just the opposite occurred .... My party of four were ignored by the wait staff for 15 minutes, and when I finally flagged someone down to take our drink order, the waiter was rude and... view more

Nice, but nothing special

This place is very cute, but after reading the reviews I was expecting it to be better. The ambience is very nice. The Service was excellent, and everything was great until the food came. Actually appetizers were not bad too, but the entrees were so-so. We were a large group and everyone ordered something different. The only person who was really happy about her meal ordered snails and was raving about them whole nig... view more
