Add spice to your dinner
Excellent service by great waiters. Polite and very professional but yet nothing to scare those who lilke friendly down to heart service. The food is amazing. And the food is amazing! The wine list is filled with little gems, many that I never tried before so I will need to go back often. The tapas formula forces you to talk about the food, and appreciate it more, as you sharing everything with friends. It also gives you the chance to have an amazing dining experience because you can try many dishes. I discovered a few new ingredients I never dare to try before, just because all plates passing by looked stunning.

Wonderfully inventive tastes
The ambience is inviting, the service excellent, but mostly its all about the food. New fresh and exciting food combinations and tastes interspersed with wonderfully prepared "old standards". Excellent wine selection and and to tie it all off .... very good coffee. All in all, a wonderful tapas venue.

UNREAL food. Perhaps the best I've had in the city! The only caveat is the $$$. Our waiter recommended each of our group order 2-3 dishes, and that adds up quickly. HIGHLY recommend.

good food, too pricey!
The tapas here was lovely but certainly too expensive to be shared plates.

A great find...
I had made reservations to celebrate our anniversary at Salt Wine Bar. It was well worth it and more than satisfied our foodie needs. Tapa style is the perfect way to try many of their dishes paired with great cocktails. My boyfriend had the smokey Manhattan cocktail that had a very interesting twist to it. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who's looking to experience fine dining tapa style presentation to satiate their palates in an absolutely tasty way.

Great Neighbourhood Restaurant
Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent wine list and we enjoyed the daily wine flight (4 vino verdes). Food was creative with a wide range of choices but a couple of dishes were on the greasy side. Definitely worthwhile.

Real follow through
I would argue that some of the new places in this area are real gems and some are simply new black hoofs... I mean holes for hipsters to get lost in. Our dining experience at Salt was awesome. We started with cocktails that were fantastic and the bartender not only knew his craft but spent the night making sure we were drinking the drinks and wine that would work with the food and atmosphere. We then sampled half the menu which wasn't perfectly executed but had great combinations and flavours that made us want more. It was refreshing to have a staff in a restaurant really care about the whole experience and that made the night. I Highly recommend the experience!

Wine, Wine and More Wine
Salt has an incredible slection of moderate to fine wines to pair for all occasions. It's a great place to find a great social and fun wine to pair with the tapas style foods. The knowledge of the staff about the wines set the stage before your endulge. I would come back!

Great menu, food very consistent, great variety and taste. Great wine list for those interesting in exploring not often seen items (lots of portuguese, for example).

Love this place
We came for my bday, and this time for my wife's. We love it here. Imo, the drinks the best in the city, and Nick always has something up his sleeve for everyone.
- Manhattan infused with blowtorched cedar shavings. If you like bourbon, if you like cedar smell... bang!
- Mint julep. Who the heck has mint juleps anymore? But wow was it ever good.
- Can't remember what the other 3 drinks were.
Ceviche - so-so... too much good raw seafood in the city to do this again.
Slow-braised rabbit tortillas - Holy smokes, this blew me away. Amazing. Would eat again!
Sausages - Had venison, bacon, and foie gras. Wife don't like foie, but loved these. Would eat again!
We do revisit this place for a reason, even though it's packed on Sat nites.

Great food, but deafening
We loved the The noise level is tpoo highfood. It was rich, but very tasty.

We felt like we struck gold when we chose Salt. Salt creates a sophisticated yet comfortable ambience; antique chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and the walls are lined with bookcases housing wine bottles (with the look only being slightly dampened by the fact that they were all opened/empty bottles). The wine list was well rounded, however I did find the average bottle to be overpriced by about $10. Having said that, the cocktail list was inventive and booze packed.
Now to the food. Oh the food! The menu is ‘tapas style’, although the portions are truly larger than what regular tapas would be. Hats off to the Chef! Personal favourites included the Gnocchi (creamy and rich but not overpowering), the lamb tartar, and the pork belly.

Perfect evening at Salt
We had 6:45 p.m. reservations at Salt last Friday night. Stuck in traffic, we ended up over 20 min. late for our table. Nick was gracious and welcoming, leading us to a really lovely table for 2 tucked up against the wall of bottles - very nice atmosphere. Service was snappy, professional and helpful. All of our food choices - the serrano ham, tomato buffala salad, sardines, gnocchi and strip loin - were beautifully presented and delicious. Wine list was great, as was the sticky toffee pudding dessert. We left, hours later, happy and impressed. In fact, it was such a great time that my husband left his iPhone behind - it was safe and sound when we returned for it the next day.
HIGHLY recommend Salt!

Great tapas experience
Our second time at Salt - very good experiences both times. Service was quick and attentive, wine glasses were refilled regularly. Lots of variety in dish choices and everything was well prepared and tasty.

Great service, ambiance and food. Interesting wines that you can't find elsewhere. A real treat.

Had my birthday dinner here with 8 friends. Service and food was amazing. Happened to be Taco tuesday all the tacos were amazing but my favourite was the grouper and pork belly. Been to a lot of different taco spots however I think Salt nailed it.
I want to go back and try the regular menu!

Super enjoyable food and atmosphere. Sharing plates was fun. Would definitely go again

Loved the place
the food was awesome as others said before in their reviews. The wine list was great and the suggestion was amazing. Everything was great for my friend and I night out. The only down side was that we payed the bill and were finishing out wine and the guys came and start to clean the table because "other people were waiting". They could finish our night in other way and some how organize the reservations without kick people out. How about if we decide to order coffee or more wine????

Really great tapas + wine
We needed to find a place to dine lightly on a Sunday night and Salt came up as a suggestion. I'm a little skeptical of reviews as they are touch and go, but it was everything it promised to be and more. The shared plates were delicious - not huge, but not skimpy - and the wine was yummy. I loved the atmosphere as well. I'm definitely going back again!

Serious creativity and balls with the menu here, and of course the dishes were also well thought-out to complement their massive wine list. Greatly enjoyed the vibe and the service. The waitstaff had a certain tongue-in-cheek, friendly style that I thought was only appropriate for the place. And on to the food -- wow! When the house-made *corn chips* that come with your crab salad are the best corn chips ever, you know it's going to be a good night. Don't know what animal fat they fry the chips in, but they came warm, just salty enough and very delicious. Crab salad itself wonderful. Then had the deep-fried rabbit with ancho chili sauce, and again, wow. Lastly, the venison and bacon sausage.. amazing. You absolutely must go.

Great food and ambience.
Tapas is a new way to eat and try many different dishes. All well presented and very tasty.
