Although expensive, the food and overall experience at Sel are incredible. The second best restaurant in the city in my opinion. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine dining.
This was our first time at Sel, but we will be back. The food (tasting menu) was innovative and really tasty, and the super-friendly staff (including the chef) made us feel relaxed and welcome. We have been at high-end restaurants that made us feel very uncomfortable; this was the opposite experience.
The food was excellent. Nice variety and great service.
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating, the food, service, ambiance were lovely! This was our first visit and we will definitely be back!
Excellent service by Alex (from the Ukraine.) Great spot for a date night or special occasion.
You won’t be disappointed… fabulous prix fixe menu . You know it’s great service when anyone from their staff serves and clears your table. Great wine menu to boot. We sat on the patio which is spacious and quiet, the perfect atmosphere.
Staff were very friendly, nice atmosphere, delicious plates, we had opted for the tasting menu which was lovely and they catered for dietary requirements (vegan). Had a lovely time, experience and meal. Would recommend.
Amazing vegetarian tasting menu .... love it !outdoor seating was so good
Overall, we were somewhat underwhelmed with this experience. We had high hopes and booked a table for a birthday celebration. We ordered the prix fixe menu. It was nice, but other than the filet mignon, it was somewhat lackluster. The first course (scallops) was overly acidic. The second course was overcooked (octopus) and the third course (lamb vindaloo) was without much flavour. Filet was great and perfectly cooked. Dessert was fine but not a personal favourite.
Service was nice.
For the price, I had expected more. Will try some other options next time.
Very good food and service. Expensive with limited menu.
Food and Service was Exquisite!!! Absolutely a fantastic experience!
We’re visiting the area and felt like we discovered the best of Scottsdale
Sel is a charming small restaurant with excellent cuisine. They also have very interesting special drinks. They were a little short of staff so we had a bit of a wait to get in, but it was worth it in the end.
My wife and I both had steaks which were excellent cuts and very nicely prepared. Our wine was excellent. We will definitely return and highly recommend the restaurant.
The restaurant features both indoor and outdoor dining.
Good food, horrible kitchen timing. It took us three hours to eat a five course meal. We want very long stretches between courses, was not impressed.
My wife and I had the tasting menu with wine pairing for our anniversary. every course was spectacular. Server and staff were wonderful and willing to switch out a course or two of the prix-fixe to our liking. Can not recommend highly enough!
Ordered the dumplings and pork buns. They were not great. We decided to not order anything else based on these two dishes. It was my husbands birthday and the best part of the experience was the free strawberry dessert. Also Joel was so nice and attentive. Our waiter on the other hand was in a very bad mood.
It is a nice restaurant. The service is outstanding. I went with the tasting menu and liked all the dishes but one. Everyone I was with enjoyed their meals. Would recommend to anyone but I would always suggest sitting outside if weather permits.
We ate dinner outdoors, everything was fabulous from start to finish. Hoke gave amazing service and food was delicious.
This place was quaint and romantic. The food was excellent! We did the tasting menu. They are flexible with requests. Friendly, knowledgeable, kind...I can’t say enough good things. We didn’t have dinner, we had an experience! We will definitely be back!
The food is outstanding, although we miss the steak tartare. The service is great. Wonderful experience.
One of the best dining experiences you could have. Celebrated my wife's BDay and got major points!
Our favorite Scottsdale restaurant! Always on our list during our monthly trip.
Amazing service. Full of hospitality .
Great food, and great service. Hernan was our server/food guide and was absolutely a pleasure to interact with.
Good as advertised and good options for vegetarians as well.
Such a beautiful meal. The tasting menu is the only way to go. Don’t go unless you want to dine as it’s was a 3 hour experience. We loved every minute! Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent service, with friendly wait staff making menu and wine selection suggestions
Service was very poor. Over charged for wine and in general not anywhere near the service you would expect at this caliber restaurant. Sever did not give us information about menu. Food was very good. But, will not be going back.
Every part of our experience at Sel was exceptional. From the moment we checked in and were immediately greeted with, "Happy Anniversary", to the amazing food, service, ambience - flawless all around. We will come back to Sel again and again.
Great food. Lovely area. Cool music. Awesome cocktails.
From the start until we left, just a great experience.
We tried the Chef's Tasting Menu...5 separate courses that did not disappoint. Each course seemed to play perfectly on the last and set up the next.
We happened to get there near the same night that they were rolling out a new cocktail list and those didn't disappoint either...yum!
This is a must-go!
Our server had an arrogant attitude. It ruined our dining experience.
Restaurant seems to be functioning well. Small kitchen driven by great chef held up well. His wife working the front is a delight. Will definitely go back.
Excellent service combined with great flavors delivered a wonderful time for our anniversary.
Beautiful setting. Outdoor dining is cozy and so nice. Scallops were amazing and tasting menu was wonderful.
Went here for a celebration of life/paying off student loan debt. I've never tried a tasting menu before and talked my brother and friend into joining me. It was amazing! My brother can't handle the texture of scallops, still tried one, and said the flavors were great. Definitely coming back if I ever have a big enough celebration
Wonderful meal. Great service, food and ambiance. Highly recommended!
Outstanding as usual. One of our best in the area.
