Food was ok. Given the noise level and the crowded space it was not worth the price. It was a poor dining experience.

Sharable plates/meals for a great price. Friend and I ended up splitting two appetizers, one pasta plate and a personal size pizza with drinks without breaking the bank. Food was good, but the pasta wasn't as fresh as I hoped it would be. Had 8pm reservations on a Monday night and ended up waiting 15 minutes to be seated and got drinks at the bar. The staff was friendly and accommodating, even giving my friend a free dessert for his birthday.

My family was visiting from out of town and I took them to Love & Salt for brunch and they LOVED it. Everything we had was delicious. A special treat was the pancake with lemon curd and blueberries. And that was just a side dish.

If you make it to Love & Salt, you must try their meatballs! When you order the bone marrow pasta, they will scrape it tableside, which is such a treat. I highly recommend this place to foodies in the South Bay.

Have dined at Love & Salt for Dinner before (always excellent), but first time for brunch. Great experience! As always cocktails were delicous and the food was top notch. We had the Homemade English Muffins, the Cacio E Pepe (eggs on rye toast), a Rocotta Pancake, and the Duck Egg Pie. Everything was spectacular. Duck Egge Pie was probably our favorite, and the Ricotta Pancake is insanely good (and great bang for your buck!). One of the best brunches in the South Bay for creative food.

Not what I had hoped for. Food is served on 8” plates so VERY small portions at regular prices. $14 for an 1/8 glass of wine. Everything comes at once, not appetizers first, and everything is scooped away by people who will move your glass if you don’t move fast enough. One plate taken away while other people are eating is rudely rushed service, not good service. Clearly, they fed you and it’s time to get the next table in and eating. The lamb pasta is boring and quickly turns cold. The pizza is heavy handed. The (2) meatball appetizer provided a nice zing with a side of buratta cheese.
The place is fashionably loud but more so.

It was a cold and windy night and it was absolutely FREEZING. We had to leave early and had drinks down the street to warm up... certainly a rare occasion and typically not an issue, but it was that night.

We had brunch at Love and Salt for the first time last weekend. The service was excellent and the food just as good. I would highly recommend the Oven Baked Eggs and Bacon. I would love to go back fro dinner sometime soon.

We go to love and salt every time family comes to town. It’s a great place to share dishes, drink quality wines and cocktails, and enjoy a view of the action in manhattan beach. We love the meatballs, shaved black kale salad, skirt steak and doughnuts!!

The food and service were fantastic! The noise level was high due to the layout and furniture, nothing in there absorbs sound but it won’t keep me from returning.
