Wonderful dinner as usual at BlackSalt. Some of the best seafood in DC. Each bite of the poached lobster was a new delicious adventure.

As my date said, "this dinner was perfect from start to finish!" Wendy was our server and she was amazing! When we sat down she greeted us and gave us a great menu tour! Wendy made the perfect recommendations. We started with wendy's recommendation of the charcuterie board. We also had the calamari and Thai spiced shrimp. And of our apps were great! For the entrees I ordered a simple tuna and my date ordered the halibut. The halibut was amazing! I'm not the biggest seafood fan, but I really liked the tuna the way the chef prepared it! To finish off we had the butterscotch dessert. The sommelier came over and paired wines with our apps (the alberino) and the house riesling with our entrees.
This is a meal we will remember for a long time and we will be back soon! A great experience, great service, great food and friendly staff! This meal was more than 5 stars!!! Thank you Black Salt!

Blacksalt has the best selection and the highest quality oysters in the DC area. Everything on the menu is great and well prepared; but, to us, the oysters are what brings us back again and again.

The service was superior. We just had to look up and someone was there to attend to our need. (My husband let the Manager know how responsive the staff was.). The swordfish seemed to be fresh frozen and my husband was disappointed. The oysters were outstanding and the staff explained what kind and the amount of brine, so it was both a taste and educational treat. We shared the three different creme brûlées and they were delicious. The beer and wine list are substantial. The oysters and service will have us come back again.

Tom was spot on on food recommendations though everything is good here. A bit loud. But overall fantastic.

Another lovely lunch at Blacksalt! Food was great, service especially so, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone. We lingered with another glass of wine, and even though the dining room was pretty empty by that time, the service was wonderful all the way through.
