We eat at BlackSalt often. We both enjoyed our meal with just a few minor issues. My sea scallops were only seated on one side and my husband said the beans in his dish were hard to the point of being inedible. However, the flavors of the food were as always amazing. So, a few execution errors will not keep us from coming back again and again!

Noise level was good because we were in back room. Originally they wanted to seat us up front which is very loud. When guest says quiet table in their reservation they shouldn’t have to ask to be seated in back room when they get there. Minor issue in a great evening! Overall another great experience.

The food was wonderful and the service was very slow. There was a long wait for the server to take the order and another long wait to get the bill. This is a great place for lunch, though not if a person needs to get back to work. That said, I will certainly go back.

Always good for seafood and their chowder is very, very good. But it is on the pricey side

BlackSalt is one of the best fine seafood spots in Greater DC. Sensational seasonal menu, great bar program, and superior service.

This was our 4th time coming back to Blacksalt. Everything we ordered for food was DELICIOUS and the mojito I ordered was sweet and strong. It was valentines and we booked an early rsvp, so it just opened for dinner and it was not too busy. The server was an older lady, she was busy chatting with another table, which was fine because my husband and I are low maintenance customers anyway. We waited to be checked on at the end of our dinner and we requested the dessert menu. I guess she was busy chatting with another table that she just handed us the check. I guess she saved us money. We will definitely be back, just hopefully a different waitress/waiter.
