    Food and service were absolutely marvelous. The addition of Dorade is a good choice! Sitting in upstairs dining room is so k, but prefer the main dining room.

    Grossly overpriced. For some reason each entree now costs $20 more than a few years ago yet the food is the same. The Branzino was good but would have been better with a simpler sauce. We will not be back.

    Outstanding as always. One of my favorite places in DC, and this time around we had the honor to dine at the same restaurant as President Biden and the First Lady as they were hosting the Japanese prime minister and wife. What an experience!!

    Not many choices for lunch. Prices well above the quality of the meal. Besides there are additional charges if you pay with credit card.

    BlackSalt is the place for seafood. The oysters alone are spectacular, and the fish is always perfectly prepared. I will report that I find I like their fish far more than I like their version of cornmeal-crusted soft shell crab.

    I ate here, four years ago, and came back to see if it was as memorable. I was not to be disappointed. Very challenging to eat a three meal course given the portions, each portion is made with great care and focus. With an on-site bakery, fresh fish in daily with a great mix of nightly specials, and a solid wine list. Makes this a great restaurant to hit for a positive evening.

    We've been going to BlackSalt for many years, and it is consistently outstanding. The food is incredible, the service is great, and the wine list is very good.

    From the first bite of stone crab claws, tender calamari to delicious entrees of rockfish, crab cakes and halibut all the way through to finishing touches with butterscotch pot de creme and key lime pie the food was excellent. The recommended wine pairing of a sancerre was fantastic. Can't remember the last time when we ate out that every thing was wonderful. Thank you for a lovely evening.
