Everything was great except the music (live) was too loud. Would have been better if the band had unplugged, did not need to amplify. Nice music, though.

My first time dining at Pink Salt didn't disappoint. I previously had only done take out a few times during the pandemic and was familiar with their delicious drinks (love love love the Botanical Fizz) and fantastic food filled with flavor and panache. Dining there was not only comfortable, the service was impeccable and food even better! And ordering additional drinks was a little too easy...

I loved the addition of the live music event during the dinner hour! And, they have added a few new items to the menu which I thought was a good idea.

The BEST grilled octopus ever. Their house made pasta with grilled chicken was delicious. The service was attentive and friendly. There was a large party nearby so noise was higher than I like but not too bad. We did not need to raise our voices to talk. I want to go back and try everything on the menu over time of course.

One of My absolute favorite restaurants in Seattle! I have been sampling the whole menu over the last year and pretty much every dish is stellar. Took someone who'd lived in Peru and she got all her traditional favorites and said they were excellent. EAT HERE!!

Too pricey for lunch. Our family of 4 (kids 12 and 9) went for an impromptu lunch on someone's recommendation. We had calamares (nice, although the crispy coating completely fell off making it difficult to eat as intended), Lomo Saltado, Arroz con Mariscos, Chaufa de Chicharron and Aji de Gallina. Although the dishes were tasty, I found them a little too fatty / oily and over-priced for what you got. I admit that I don't have any frame of reference for Peruvian food. With 2 alcoholic drinks, 2 sodas, and 2 desserts, it cost over $200. I would have been happy to pay $120 total, but the quality didn't seem to justify the price tag and there wasn't much finesse to the food. I think maybe we just ordered the wrong things, but unfortunately I'm not inspired to try again.

The food was delicious! I had their Pisco Sour as my drink. My boyfriend and I shared Ceviche Nikkei that was good. I had the Pesto Risotto with Steak. and my boyfriend had Aji de Gallina. When he got his dish, it came out cold at first, but they were happy to make a new one for him. Overall, though, it was a very delicious dinner. I would come back and try more things on their menu. I recommend it!

My second time here. Food was very good, my only issue was that the fish I ordered happened to be a rather bony cut. I tried a pisco negroni cocktail. It had a rather bitter aftertaste, so from now on I’ll stick with their delicious traditional pisco sour that I tried on my first visit. Desserts were great, service a little slower this time but still quite good.

Had a lovely evening. Greeted and seated right away. Beautiful setting and ambience! Drinks were excellent, server was great, friendly. I recommend Pisco Tropical, perfect summer drink, refreshing, very tasty. Also Rye Manhattan with Amaro was wonderful, so heart warming and bold. Food was all right. Ceviche- flavor was good, marinade was delicious, zingy, very nice, but fish was chopped in large pieces, was a bit odd to eat. Yukka rellena appetizer was ok, the sauce was more delicious than the fritters themselves. Pulled chicken special Aji de Gallina was ok, lacked flavor, chicken felt very dry, was kinda one dimensional, flat, wouldnt order it again. Black Cod entree was interesting. Cod had excellent flavor. Really enjoyed each bite! Although the fish fillet was served skin down on risotto, meaning instead of expected crispy skin you get very soggy skin, soaked in risotto. It would look and taste sooo much better with proper sear and skin served up to retain the crisp. Again, it is only my humble opinion.

Ceviche is a favorite and was as delicious as ever. Pesto Risotto was to die for. The tenderloin which was served on top was over-cooked (we ordered medium rare).

I love Pink Salt, and always eat outside on their lovely patio. Unfortunately, there was live music playing and it was too loud. I watched other diners lean across the table and cup their ears trying to hear each other. We ended up eating inside which was "ok." I was disappointed that we had to be inside on a lovely evening.

The whole problem would have been solved if the music had been MUCH quieter.

Except for the music, there were only minor flaws. I'll be back.

We ate outside, which was wonderful till the food came on. Then the bees, etc. wanted to share all the bounty. Don't know what you can do about that. I've been to this restaurant (when it was Szmania's) well over a hundred times. Now I've been to Pink Salt three or four times. The prices seem to be going up, although that doesn't bother me too much. The food was very tasty. The one thing that stunned me was the overwhelming music playing inside the restaurant. I've never before experienced that at Szmania's/Pink Salt. That's one reason we ate outside. When cooler weather comes, I don't want to dine at Pink Salt if the music is playing so loudly that I can't hear my dining partners talk. Was that just a fluke?

Wow! A lovely patio setting for my friend ‘s birthday. Great food! Risotto under the black cod was our favorite. Inventive cocktail selection. I love pisco sour and was able to choose from a few riffs on the theme. Had the flaming llama cocktail which was deliciously and a stunning pink. Whole decor is a stunning shade of accented pink. Drive to Magnolia! Worth it!
