The food was delicious and the setting equally magnificent. Thanks.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThere is a ReasonThere is a Reason why it has a 5 diamond rating.
The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and its pairings. They give more than the impression that they have read the script from the chef, they are conversant as to why it is a good pairing. Not just the wine list but the name sake SALT. Yes, there is a recommended SALT pairing.
It was our 27th anniversary and a perfect setting for the occasion. Warm, intimate, un-rushed. The wait staff was attentive without being bothersome or that they need to turn over the table for the next tip.
They realize dining at SALT is an experience and want the dinner to experience SALT.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday 65 X 2A treasure overlooking the shores of Amelia Island, Salt Restaurant at the Ritz Carlton, delivers everything and more. The staff were knowledgeable, gracious and helpful. A friend and I were celebrating our 65th birthdays and we were started off with complimentary champagne of the finest quality. From artisanal cheeses and fois gras to perfectly cooked sea scallops with crispy morels, and a delicious Grand Marnier souffle, the entire dinner was executed to perfection. With delicious coffee we were served a plate of chocolates with a note written in chocolate wishing us happy birthday and of course two bright candles. The evening was topped off with a guided tour of the kitchen and a thank you to Chef Niko.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTop 5 meal everBest meal I have had in 8 years...which was in Italy.

The food, service and ambiance is the best. We usually get the chef tasting, the food is so fantastic and the service just makes you feel so special.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic! It'sThe food was fantastic! It's called "Salt" because of the 36 different types of salt they have. Based on your selections, the server will bring over select salts that would compliment your food. The salts are not run of the mill salt. They combine flavor and texture with other flavors infused. I recommend that you try the salt by itself and then try it with the food.
Everything was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend the Hawaiian Blue Marlin as an appetizer...Spectacular!
The service was incredible. We had Matt as the head server and Brandon as the assistant. They catered to our every whim. Overall, a wonderful experience. Note that this is a pricey adventure, but well worth it for us foodies.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here (last inSecond time here (last in December 2012) This time, took the tasting menu with wine pairings ...
First two dishes were fish ... wines perfectly paired .. especially the Chardonnay with the scallops ...
The pork dish was first class ... however the Spanish wine was far too heavy for my taste to go with the subtle flavor of the food ... heavy on tanins and must have been up there at 14.5% alcohol ... I would suggest a light Pinot Noir or even a small Bordeaux - Paulliac? ...
Dessert was superb and a very nice dessert wine ...
Overall a great meal ... service team was perfect.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Ritz lived up to its reputationThe Ritz lived up to its reputation and was an amazing experience both from a food and service standpoint.

Very attentive staff.
We had the chef's tasting menu with wine selections. The crab appetizer was fantastic, the fish course snapper filet in a delious cowder was also great, and the lamb filet superb. The cheese and chocolate soffle's were each also delicious. The wines paired nicely with the courses and the pours were generous. The freash breads and specialty salts were also tasty. Last time we visited we had a high full romantic moon. This year there was no moon but we enjoyed the ocean view and reflected sunset.
