Diner Reviews
  • "All three courses were fantastic, tuna appetizers, scallops entree, peach dessert and our waiter Damin's service, attitude and knowledge made the night even better. Oops almost forgot how much we enjoyed our bottle of wine and lemon drop Martin. Salt has a top notch bar. We enjoy dinner her about once a week."

  • "The Hawaiian chef owner does a great job with presentation and flavor. My wife had the whole red snapper and it was presented on a flat plate swimming over rice and bock choy. The snapper looked like it was swimming! It was delicious. I had the diver scallops. Delicious and very special."

  • " We noticed upon arrival that for a Friday night at 7 there were very few people there. It was a very nice evening so we thought we would sit outside. The view was of a drainage ditch and a busy road. My wife wanted wine and I had a cocktail. The wine list was not bad but there was only one Cab that was sold by the glass. Next we ordered two appetizers . The first was a Ahi on crab. The crab served was old and had an old seafood smell and taste.The second was a goat cheese salad. It was delicious.Our main entrées were shrimp tempura and seared scallops on mashed potatoes. The tempura was overly breaded and the shrimp were small. The scallops were cooked perfectly but lacked flavor. We gave it a 5 out of 10 and will not be going back."

  • "We came from out of town and did a search on Yelp. So glad we found this place. Devin, our waiter was a very informative and helpful who worked with the chef on some gluten and soy free choices. The cheese platter was flavorful and filling for 2 people; the Ahi Tuna with crabmeat wasn't our favorite but you couldn't tell by how clean we left the plate; tried not to lick the plate from the mixed berry salad - never had a salad that tasted so good. We were too full to have an entrée so decided to share a dessert. The tart was awesome. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant. You won't be sorry."

  • "I had the cobia fish special and it was excellent! I'm still talking about it. Fish was perfectly prepared and the combo of flavors with how it was seasoned was fantastic!"

  • "My husband and I ventured to salt for the first time last Saturday night for my birthday. We received good advice and great service from the knowledgable wait staff. The panko crusted shrimp appetizer was fantastic. I had the fish of the day and my husband had the lamb we were both delighted with the asian influences of the main course and veggies. His goat cheese salad was also delicious. It was a upbeat atmosphere but quiet enough of us to carry on a conversation in normal tones - very relaxing. No TV's were visible - I have been unhappy with the trend of TVs in upscale restaurants and was happy not to see any there. Great food, great service, interesting cocktails. We plan to go back soon. Thinking drinks and apps at the bar !"

  • "This was the 4th/5th time we ate at Salt. The food and service was exceptional on all occasions. Unfortunately each time we ate there they always attempted to seat us at a table that is directly between the bar and the main dinning area. The table is small and people are constantly walking past as this is a main thorough fair for waiters and customers. Upon asking for a different table we were told all the tables in the main area were reserved. The did place us in the bar area which was loud however not by customers (there weren't any) but by staff / waiters who were huddled around the bar area joking and talking rudely and loudly. As we were walking out there was only 1 other table occupied in the main dining area."

  • "Our evening was super! We have eaten here many many times and this was our best visit yet! Drinks were wonderful, appetizers were fantastic and this was the best dinner special we have ever ordered here even dessert was a winner. We will return soon for more of Eli's spot on recommendations. ***** 5 stars"

  • "Chef was at his most creative and worked up dishes with variations that met everyone's diet and preferences! Not often one has the chance to express a desire and get chef's best improvised sides and accompaniments. High praise from all our group!"

  • "First time to the restaurant and it did not disappoint. The menu is modern, with a selection of Asian/American fusion dishes. Service was outstanding with lots of recommendations from our knowledgeable waiter. The ambience is nice, city-style, with a pretty wood bar. Plenty of items from which to choose, including the drink and wine menu. The wine list is small, but interesting. For example, they had an Abiouness Pinot on the list. Not many restaurants have that winery. The only thing I would like to see is a better dessert menu. This Saturday they had four, uninspired choices. Overall, an excellent dining experience. Highly recommended."

  • "We had a superb meal at Salt. The food was excellent, had eye appeal, the portion was perfect...it was a work of art. There were some very loud people near us that detracted from the experience."

  • "The food, service, and overall experience was nearly flawless. All aspects of each of the courses were delicious and carefully prepared to the finest detail. The service was friendly without feeling rushed, which we enjoy. Outstanding!"

  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary. They gave us a nice private table. Our waiter Devin was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable with our wine selections and even talked us into a wine that was less expensive because it paired better with what we ordered. All of the food was great, but I'd have to credit Devin with helping guide our dining experience. Ask for him when you go there!"

  • "A great, elegant dining experience, Salt has excellent "Libations" (I had a tasty Sidecar) and some really good appetizers. The cheese board was a delicate mix of flavors. The bulgogi wraps were sweet and savory. For the main course, I had the Sweet and Spicy Shrimp with coconut rice and edamame. My fiancée had a delectable Pad Thai. For dessert, I had an amazing goat cheese and chocolate cheesecake that was complex and satisfying. Our waiter was attentive, but unobtrusive. The atmosphere was romantic and vibrant."

  • "They had removed pork belly from the menue and I was devistated. However, the lamb was an acceptable substitute. My wife had the oysters and I had the cheese plate. Both of us enjoyed them. Then I had the goat cheese salad and my wife had the Asain salad. Again both were enjoyable. My wife had the duck and I had the lamb chops, I would have enjoyed the pork belly more but we both enjoyed our choices. The Pork belly will be rotating back into the line up and we will be going back! We like the food and the service that we have received each time we have been to SALT. Try it you will like it!"

  • "This restaurant is about pleasing your palate in so many ways. The Chef is one of the best in the area. My friends and I were amazed by the service and presentations of our meals. Kudos to the owners for having such a wonderful team and restaurant. We will recommend you highly to our friends and family. Can't wait to come back"

  • "A good night to go to Salt is Monday. You get half off any wine on the menu. The list has too many Sav Blanc types wines for white, but you'll still be able to pull together a reasonable sample of wines. The Poke special was good and the Lobster tempura with pasta was excellent For $260, we got 3 appetizers, 3 entrée, 3 bottles of wine"

  • "On a whim for late lunch we tried Salt. It was perfect. Great table seating, each dish we ordered was perfect and the wait staff was very personable. All took great care of us. Heirloom tomatoes ... Yummers. Lovely Asian tastes that are not overpowering. Interesting , creative menu. Discover this secret for yourself."

  • "We booked Salt after reading the favorable reviews on Open Table. The waiter was very knowledgeable and didn't hesitate to make recommendations. We enjoyed everything we ordered, but most of all LOVED dessert! Make sure and get the Oatmeal Cream Pies! Delish!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I'll start out by saying it was a slow night, and Salt lacked the 'energy' that can enhance a dinner. Service was nicely paced. We started with the wine and cocktail list, with many good options. Appetizers included several interesting choices (did I notice a Bobby Huber influence?) and were very good. Entrees were a step down, and may have been because business was slow. I think, if we go back, my dinner will be an appetizer, a salad, and a bottle of wine."

  • "We found the restaurant to be average based on other similarily priced restaurants in the area. I will say the truffle mac and cheese was great! Unfortunately, it just didn't have any "special" qualities. "

  • "What a find! We had no knowledge of this restaurant and were surprised to find the food outstanding, the service very cordial and knowledgeable and the setting quite satisfactory. Go, go, go! Try the whole fish dish. Amazing. The Cioppino was great too. Not the usual heavier broth but lighter and full of flavor. Salad was bursting with freshness like it was all just picked out of the garden right before dinner. Only hold back was the oatmeal sandwich cookie dessert. Not our favorite. Will definitely go back."

  • "Visitng Va Beach and came upon Salt through Open Table. What a great place. The food and service were outstanding. The chef has a great touch with flavors, you can taste everything but not be over powered by any one. That is a great kitchen. We had then ciopino, pad Thai, whole snapper, mussels and calamari and th oysters. Would have it all again "

  • "We chose this restaurant for a birthday dinner for our daughter, who is a chef. We reviewed the menu online, and she liked it. She always avoids chain restaurants, including big-name ones, and wanted someplace "cool" for her birthday. We picked Salt mainly because of its location (close to grandma's house) and its menu. This turned out to be an absolutely amazing place. Large portions of perfectly prepared and unusual dishes. There were 6 of us dining, and all chose something different. Every dish was wonderful. Great service, knowledgeable wait staff. We have already recommended Salt to friends."

  • "I love pork belly but discovered too much of a good thing is not so good. I think it would serve the dish better if the pork belly was served as an appetizer. We introduced friends to your restaurant. They loved it. Mark was disappointed that you sold out of the whole fish. The table next to ours got 2. MY husband has had it before."

  • "Only the 2nd time we have been to Salt and it was as good as we remembered from our first visit. Excellent food (the short ribs were perfect) and the chocolate goat cheese cake was delicious. The waiter even remembered us even though it had been a number of months since we were first there. Definitely a great neighborhood find."

  • "My wife and I have dined at this restaurant over 5 times, so we finally can write a review that everyone should trust. This place is the best restaurant in Virginia Beach hands down! The service is always great with many of the servers even coming by to say hello when they are not our server that evening. The Executive Chef, Justin, has created so many tasty items that every time we go, we get something new. He is a culinary master in Hampton Roads. If I could give him a award, I would! Can't wait to go back!!!"
