Always Great food and service! Perfect for meeting friends or romantic dinner with spouse.
Three course prix fixe lunch was a great deal. Nice to be able to have a glass of wine instead of dessert. Fried clams did not have much clam flavor.
Absolutely horrible experience. The food was not good and the server was incredibly nervous and made the entire experience very awkward. Some of the worst tasting ceviche I have ever had!
I hadn’t been in years but found that the food was as good as ever. Had an excellent meal. Thank you!
Visiting from out of town. Recommended by family. Dover Sole was wonderful.
Excellent as always. Great service. Favorite place
As always, a very good place for a business lunch.
Reasonably quiet with very good food and ambiance.
Best Lunch spot in town
Quality over quantity. The food was amazing. Maybe just a tad bit shy on the sides portions. Besides that, amazing experience.
Oysters from west coast are my favorite w strong flavors, also love their seafood strew & clam chowder! Two Thumbs Up!
The food was amazing, and full of flavor, the ambience was great! The wood grill swordfish was on point and so were the drinks!
We love this restaurant! And last Saturday was no exception to its consistent delicious food and wine, and excellent customer service!
Doug was our fantastic server, giving us his full attention and very knowledgeable about all things food. He was outstanding. Great meal, nice environment, pricey, but you know that going into it.
Always attentive. Excellent food delicate broth in soup , tacos perfect and beet salad well balanced. We both eat light and they split our food order with separate plates.
Don’t miss dessert key lime brilliant ..
We eat 1-2 times a year at BlackSalt, but this was the first time in the back dining room. What a gem! Much quieter and more intimate than the main dining room. A perfect setting for catching up with old friends whom we had not seen in 6 years. And, as usual, the crabcakes were perfect!
BlackSalt is my go-to seafood restaurant. Everything on their menu is great but their clam chowder is absolutely magnificent.
Excellent service. Unobtrusive while we enjoyed quietly chatting yet informative when needed.
Black salt never disappoints. A little pricey (especially the wines) but always a great dining experience.
Always a special and remarkable experience!
We had a most enjoyable evening. Great location and parking. Excellent wait staff and attention to detail. All of the food was amazing. It was great to be able to mix appetizers and entrees with seamless service - could not ask for more. Desserts are fantastic. Would highly recommend BlackSalt and all of the Black restaurants.
Great service, delicious as always.
Joey was wonderful. There was an Asian gentleman that Joey stated was also helping. We asked Joey to keep him from our table. If there is one thing I can't stand is, to ask a question and the server immediately stating "NO" instead of checking. My friend asked this server about the salmon cakes and instead of stating that he would find out about them, he immediately stated that NO, WE NO LONGER HAVE THEM. We asked Joey about the Salmon cakes and he stated that he would find out. My dinner companion was delighted to find that not only did they have the entree she wanted, but there were only two left and she would like them both. One for dinner and the other to take homed. We asked Joey to keep the other server away from our table because he obviously didn't care enough about serving and only wanted his evening to be over. Joey took care of everything and the evening was saved. Several years ago, a group of us would frequent Black Salt every Friday but our team was separated. Now that I live in Florida and come up one week a month, I will most likely start our Friday evening rituals again. Good company, great food and amazing ambiance.
Birthday and I had dinner by myself. It was good. No complimentary desert.
I have never been disappointed with Black Salt. Great seafood prepared perfectly. Big oyster menu.
Excellent food- we loved the oysters, different small appetizers with great flavors. A wonderful evening!
We will be back !
Thank you very much
Black Salt is a very reliable spot for interesting food with fresh ingredients, and of course is centered on seafood. But the experience can vary a lot. On an earlier occasion I was seated upstairs in the formal part of the restaurant (white table cloths) which met my expectations. This time we were seated in the bistro area and were right on the end near a high traffic area. It was our server (male) who really underwhelmed us - he was pushy and had odd timing, seemed more interested in clearing the table than making us comfortable. I would also note that a lot of plates are brought to the table so we were fighting for space. I will think twice and look for other options in Palisades next time. It's a pity!
The 5-course Chef's tasting menu was fantastic. All three in our party enjoyed it immensely. Only negative critique was we felt a bit rushed to leave, even though the restaurant was still open. The server picking up the paid check while we were still at the table was a clear hint.
I lunched with a friend. I had a lovely starter salad and the tuna sandwich. Loved the salad. The sandwich was very hard to eat because it was so thick and somewhat juicy. Overall, I think the food was good to very good, but I don't feel compelled to rush back. Oh, but I should add that the key lime pie, while VERY small, was outstanding.
The food was incredible! The service was outstanding and the bartender worked with us to ensure we liked the drinks and wine we ordered. We had various appetizers, entrees and desserts and they were all fresh and perfectly cooked. It’s expensive but it delivers in quality. Can not wait to go back!
The lunch special is a great value. All the food was wonderfully fresh and served timely. The service staff is very professional and pleasant.
Not much to say other than the overall visit to Black Salt was pleasant in temrs of food, service,, and overall environment. Keep up the good work.
Wonderful place to celebrate a birthday. Sommelier and server were both awesome.
Our second dinner at Blacksalt, and every bit as good as the first! A bit pricy, but well worth it for a great seafood meal! Excellent service in a casual, but very sophisticated setting.
Wonderful neighborhood place; food is fabulous, and ambience great.
Very good food. Outstanding and friendly service.
Came here to celebrate a birthday and the service was amazing. Our waiter has so many suggestions and everything he mentioned was delicious! The grilled octopus wasn’t the best, but everything else from the crab to the lobster and especially the oysters were amazing.
Definitely looking forward to coming back again!
Excellent, as always
The food and service were excellent! I've never had a bad meal at BlackSalt.
One of the best high end seafood restaurants in DMV! Foods are exquisitely fresh & delicious w/ attentive services. The only drawback is their location/ parking! Highly recommend it!
