Food was absolutely amazing! Service was fair.
Best meal overall I’ve had in years! The cocktails, wine, food, service, and environment were perfect.
Always a treat to visit BlackSalt. This was a last minute change of plans to eat late on our 20th Wedding Anniversary and the staff was very nice in making it best as can be on short notice. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Just never enough of it! Cheers and bon appetite!
Loved this place. A must for visitors who love sea food and for locals. Totally recommend.
Blacksalt is a high quality food restaurant. It’s not the cheapest but the value certainly is there. The front of the restaurant is significantly colder than the back, so if you’re cold easily, I’d ask for a spot in the back. Cocktails are nicely made, not too heavy on the alcohol, not too light.
I will certainly come back.
For those who haven’t been, the crab cakes are absolutely worth it and my mother’s Branzino was also delicious. I think this might be one of those places where you can’t really go wrong...
Fresh fish, outstanding service
Great food and wine list plus great service.
Consistently top notch!
The food is very good and is a nice restaurant I like the fish display in the main entrance
Loved spring mix salad and clam chowder.
Wonderful experience. Ask for quiet back room
Great neighborhood gem that's time-tested and almost always spectacular.
Truly excellent in every respect.
The clam chowder is just the best ever and I grew up on Cape Cod. .
Rarely if ever do I complain about Blacksalt BUT BRING BACK THE BANANA CREAM PIE! Why would you take off the best dessert on the menu?? And if you want to have hummingbird cake on the menu then give us a proper piece. I know I’m not the only person complaining about this.
Everything was great!! The only minor thing was that it was freezing in the restaurant. The nice staff were able to adjust the temperature. Thanks!
Fantastic meal! Wonderful service and delicious fresh seafood!
Service was very good. Food was exceptional. Wine and beer selection was good. Prices are a bit higher than expected. Parking was a bit of challenge.
We always find the food and service to be great, but the noise level is too much. “Energetic” is hardly the word for it. Please, please think about sound-reducing measures.
Wonderful food. Wonderful space. Great customer service. A bit too noisy. A bit too pricey. I’ll definitely return and would recommend to friends.
It was overall a good experience. The clam chowder was superior. Excellent presentation. Branzino was well prepared but the vegetables accompanying were hard and unappealing. There was only a smear of pea purée on the plate. It was not an accompanying side. Disappointing. Dessert was fabulous. Peanut Butter Crunch Cake.
Overall pricey for very good but not exceptional food.
Wonderful as always.
The restaurant is located in a quiet neighborhood, not far from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. Blacksalt has a cozy, family-style atmosphere. The food preparation and presentation were superb, but the taste was even better! The service is professional, attentive and helpful. I would highly recommend Blacksalt on any visit to the DC area.
Birthday celebration and first time for brunch here. Very pleasantly surprised!
Excellent, except crab cakes had a bit too much filler and broken shells.
I think after a weaker time BlackSalt has gotten its act together. The last two dinners have been imaginative and beautifully presented. The mussels were remarkable
Very nice experience from beginning to end Great service and wonderful food
Terrific express lunch. Loved the spring, fresh options. Service was terrific.
A must visit for foodies...
Creative menu that will not disappoint
Service was spotty, especially considering it was early on a Sunday evening and not too crowded. Our seafood was very good. Dessert was definitely overpriced and no-hum. We have eaten there before, and will do so again.
Unbelievably good seafood dishes in a beautifully decorated restaurant behind a fish market. 2 servers per table took care of your every need. The flavors and texture combinations were superb. As good as any place we have been in NY.
Incredible quality, impeccable service. I will definitely be coming back!
Blacksalt never fails. The food and atmosphere are always perfect. And as always it’s the one place I always have dessert.
Excellent as always
Excellent food and lunch is amazing value
Food and service excellent but restaurant a little noisy
I asked for a table in the back room, thinking it would be quiet. That proved tobe a mistake. There were three large groups in the room, and it began noisy and got more loud and noisy as the evening went on. It seemed to me as we went out that the area in the main hall was quieter.
But the noise was the only negative. The service was knowledgeable and handful. The food -- oysters and soft shells -- was delicious and the soft shells were superbly tempura-ed. Black Salt is where I go for a seafood fix -- or a buy -- and I am looking forward to returning.
-+Thje food was fabulous --love this restaurant. Great seafood and imaginative presentation. Olace was busy at 8 pm on a Wednesday night -- service was good , but a tad slow due to large crowds. It is a bit loud when full, but the food is so good hard to resist.
They stuck in the middle of two tables so we couldn’t really hear each other over the loud guys next to us.
Incredibly fresh seafood. Creative dishes with wonderful combinations of flavors and textures. The food here is superb!
The food and service were exceptional.
