Excellent service. Clear attention to safety. Delicious food!
great food and atmosphere - Enjoyed the food very much
Outstanding service and fresh, perfectly prepared food, as always. Bar service the best in the city.
Wonderful - can’t wait to return!
BlackSalt remains my favorite restaurant in DC, although I haven't been there in at least 18 months. The food continues to be outstanding. I had the clam chowder, a plate of fried clams, halibut and a chocolate- peanut butter dessert. All were superb. Service was mostly good.
Had a wonderful dinner here this past weekend. Service and food were superb!
Excellent service and food. The soft shell crabs were delicious and their crab cakes are by far the best we’ve had. Only three oysters per serving, wished they served at least half a dozen for the price.
Delighted that the restaurant has managed to survive the epidemic and maintain its high standards.
The menu at lunch was extensive.
always great food, especially if you are a seafood lover.
We love the Black Restaurant Group, and had never been to Black Salt. Delicious! Attentive staff, fabulous ambience. We'll be back!
Our dining experience was OUTSTANDING!!!!! My Big-eyed Tuna was perfectly cooked and the guacamole bed was scrumptious!!! My wife had the crab cake almost saddened me because it was sooo good!!! Thanks to our server who gave us the choice of grilled or fried calamari even though the menu only listed the grilled. Highly recommend a visit!!!
Our return to Black Salt after 14 months of not dining out was exceptional. Tables were spaced apart and there were limited numbers of diners there. The service was beyond attentive. Katherine and the rest of the team never missed a beat. We asked if they would do a tasting menu even though it is not on the current menu and not only did they create a beautiful multi course meal for us, they also provided lovely wine pairings with each course.
We left having overindulged a bit with food but completely satisfied and eager to come back again.
The food was OK. I just have a feeling that every meal was overdone with too many ingredients. The food presentation was nice
Our server was very nice and super pleasant
Delicious good and wonderful service in a quiet setting. Superb👍
Highly enjoyed the atmosphere and service of BlackSalt for our anniversary. He will definitely be returning soon.
It has been a year since my last visit and everything was even better than last time, which is saying a lot.Our server, Catherine, was beyond expectations wonderful and the food ( asparagus salad and grilled branzino) outstanding. So glad to be back!
Awesome fresh seafood. Good selection of fresh oysters
Food was great! Highly recommend the scallops as an appetizer.
This restaurant is consistent with excellent food and service.
This was my first time back to an old favorite due to the pandemic shutting down so many restaurants; I am happy to say that the evening was wonderful. Old faces greeting me, impeccable, friendly service, wonderful food. Such a thoughtful wine list, too. I look forward to going again.
Date night worthy! I took my boyfriend to this restaurant for Easter dinner, and the service and food were phenomenal. We even landed a private seat near the wine cellar, which was very intimate for us. Even though the bill was expensive, it was worth it for a special day. You'll get your money's worth!
Notable foods: Oyster Rockefeller and Asparagus Salad (w/ a protein)
I have had the pleasure of dining twice in the last few weeks and I can not say enough good things about either of my experiences. Very professional service and excellent food. If seafood is on your wish list, this is the restaurant who serves the very freshest. We look forward to a return visit soon.
Excellent fish! All four dinners were tasty and cooked to perfection
Everyone was polite, responsive, cordial, inviting, understanding, knowledgeable, and the food was delicious. I recommend the scallops.
Enjoyed the Ipswich clams and oysters Rockefeller. My friend had and enjoyed the crab cake sandwich. Liked the market up front. Will definitely be back!
Our first time inside a restaurant after our vaccinations so we chose our favorite fish house anywhere. BlackSalt rewarded us with a warm welcome, a fresh friendly staff (Katherine - take a bow), and the best oysters served anywhere on the east coast shucked perfectly. The only thing missing are people because BlackSalt is meticulously following best practices against the spread of the virus.
The management and staff at BlackSalt have maintained their high standards in spite of the obvious limitations created by COVID, and we command them one and all.
My 60 Birthday💃
I enjoyed another outstanding lunch at BlackSalt. Today was the first time I ordered the grilled calamari and now I plan to keep that dish at the top of my list for appetizers. While any of the fish is an outstanding choice, you can never go wrong with the mussels. The cheeseburger is amazing too. And the wine list always has something new and delicious to try.
The food was excellent but a bit pricey. Service was slow but the wait staff was very attentive and accommodating.
Great food. We had two fish dishes that were delicious. Te service is superb, the ambience not so cozy as expected. Recommended
We were celebrating my birthday! I’ve always loved Black Salt and this time it didn’t fail me!!!
Service was superb.
We love this restaurant! Delicious food and fantastic service. I especially loved the calamari and octopus appetizers. A must visit....
Raw Oysters from WA are WOW!! 👍👍
Clam Chowder, Blue Shell Mussels & Fish Tacos are also delicious & worth a try! Overall Two Thumbs Up! 👍👍
Food was awesome and the customer service was excellent!!!
As always, simply the best dining experience. There is nothing on the menu that does not warrant ordering at least once. The oysters were an exquisite start and it only improved from there.
Our favorite date night spot! My husband ordered the newest Halibut preparation. He said it was the most delicious food ever! Black Salt never disappoints!
We always enjoy coming back . Food and attention are always perfect.
Amazing restaurant! I felt like our meals were cooked specifically for us. Just a super personal and friendly atmosphere that I highly recommend.
Very lovely lunch to celebrate an occasion. The octopus is A MUST LIKE OMG. I love octopus but I loved each component: acidic cherry tomatoes and a green purée. YUM! I think the wine selection is good - they should def start selling the cornbread. It was around 3 pm on a Saturday- our server was so nice and accommodating. She was very patient with my other party member for their selection. Our booth seat was close to the end of the restaurant and not much passerby so it was great for a time out with social distancing. They even had a specialty Happy Birthday Dessert with a chocolate “HBD” plaque on it. Made my day ever so special. Highly recommend !
