Blacksalt offers the best combination of fine food, expertly and carefully prepared, with impeccable and stylish service of any restaurant in the city. Consistently. It's a neighborhood treasure.
Really perfect calamari and a yummy pear salad and a lovely attentive staff. Fabulous experience!
Once gain, a go to seafood in DC or anywhere for that matter. Never had a bad meal. Great chef, staff. Just really the best from the Chef to the bussers they all work professionally and support each other. It's a symphony of professionalism and great creative dishes. The pastry chef is the best in the city in our estimation. Desserts are truly a work of art that compliments the creativity of the general menu items and leaves you with a 'good taste in your mouth'. A must go to when in DC.
Excellent, personalized customer service by the sommelier while maintaining socially distancing.
Always good service and food. Thank you
BlackSalt is a great place to dine. The staff is amazing. Friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable. The wine selections are lovely and express diversity. The culinary creations are stunning from the decadent burger to the fried Ipswich clams. You can’t go wrong. Finishing the grand meal with a slice of Key Lime pie will have you leave with a smile. Enjoy!
Best overall fish restaurant in DC. You have to be creative and willing to experience different flavor profiles and nuances that will challenge your pallete but be well worth the experience. One of a few places around the world where I can say I have never had a bad meal.
Great food. Fresh and well prepared. Excellent service.
I had the halibut and it was cooked to perfection. The broth was amazing!
We love Black Salt but had not been there since March, except to visit the fish market, which we do several times a week. It was a pleasure to be back and the food was delicious. Because the indoor capacity is limited, the ambiance was not as it was in the past. But we know at some point it will be back to full capacity. Meanwhile, we want to keep Black Salt going. It is a treasure.
Wife and I went here for anniversary dinner. Staff was excellent and food was superb worth every dollar spent. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
It was very disappointing. The clam chowder was the one dish that was delicious. The red snapper made my husband sick, the crab cakes could have been good but were WAY too salty. The wood fired calamari was like eating a rubber tire, I ate one and could not eat another. The waitress rushed us and seemed stressed out ( understandly it is indoor dining in the midst of covid) the tables were 6 feet apart and there were rules about how to keep your masks on while not dining but the only ones following that rule were me and my husband. Would definitely not go back .
Amazing food and service. Best seafood in DC region. Flawless service. Get the clam chowder!! We love to eat here.
Fresh sea food very well prepared
Black Salt is great for drinks and appetizers, even for a first date!
We sat inside and had a great meal. They were very cautious with social distancing, everyone was wearing masks
We had a lovely dinner on a Thursday night with all the Covid protocols in place. Distant tables, masks, gloves, etc. It was lovely with all the space that we could have a conversation and no close quarters!
The quality of the food is the reason Blacksalt is not inexpensive. Our calamari and oysters could have been a meal in themselves. The tuna was outstanding, large and tasty. My fish tacos had the best accompaniments that I ate one without the taco. Our drinks were quality and husband loves the large ice cubes! We were stuffed, so no dessert. Enjoyed every bite.
Food was best ever, amazing!!
Lovely and very personable service staff. Thank you so much!!
Food is always outstanding. And the checks are always large. But it’s a great value because the tables are very widely spaced and it feels very safe and comfortable.
This was our first indoor dining experience post-COVID. We came for their last reservation spot to avoid people. I thought that BlackSalt went well above COVID regulations. The tables were very well spaced and the waiters limit the time at your table as much as possible. The food here is also fantastic.
Very very pricey for not so great food. Very disappointed
We are regulars at Blacksalt and we always love dining in there, this time was no exception, regardless the difficult times due to covid, quality of food and service remains as excellent as always.
Excellent food and wine.
Food was great, service seemed a little rushed since we were one of the later seatings overall great experience.
If you are looking for a restaurant with A+service, food, drinks and ambiance, Black Salt is the place to go. My wife and I ate there to celebrate our anniversary.
Catherine ( server) was very knowledgeable of the dishes and gave great recommendations. She was very attentive. I would recommend Black Salt to anyone looking for a great meal with excellent service.
Great food...fresh and tasteful. The drinks were excellent. The service was a tad slow since one person seemed to be providing service to the whole restaurant. There was an issue with one entree but management corrected it ASAP. Overall highly recommend!
Perfect lunch. They followed all Covid rules diligently.
Wines by the glass are very good. Lots to choose from on the menu. Original flavors. Both the Halibut and Branzino were very good. Big plates. You do not go hungry :-)
Extremely overpriced, but otherwise a good all around experience
As always a very relaxing and enjoyable time. I couldn't get by without Blacksalt, especially now.
So fantastic, Wendy took care of us for my girlfriends birthday. Completely gave the menu to her to help us and wow, so amazing. Great time, great staff, such a wonderful experience. Thank you BlackSalt!
BlackSalt never disappoints, still a solid restaurant. The oysters were amazingly fresh, the himachi delicious, however the octopus was described as grilled and appeared to be poached maybe? Still good, just not as expected.
Dining room comfortably accommodates groups and couples. Limited vegetarian options.
Great except for one guest very loud
Only grabbed a few bites but we were greeted by ALL members of the team from Management to the front store workers! HUGE DEAL! Very warm and welcoming! Wendy was our server she was very kind and informative. We will be back to try the 55.00 PF Menu soon!
The food was so good! Love the service. Thank you for a great date spot.
Excellent service. Excellent food!
Great service provided by both Kate & Eric
