Seafood
ROCKSALT Charlotte brings you a sustainable seafood experience in an intimate, rustic setting. Our oyster bar is front and center to showcase the freshest oysters around, grown by our owner. The wood-fired grill brings savory depth to land and sea-based proteins. Our wine and beer selections are carefully curated and our cocktail list evolves continually. And we have incredible non-seafood options as well, such as our Chef's Cut - a rotating choice of steaks cooked on our open fire! We have two patios - one that is covered and affords great views of the surrounding area, another that is uncovered and a great place for walk-ins to wait for their table while grabbing a drink. Reservations recommended but we try to accommodate as many walk-ins as we can. Please be advised that reservations are held for 15 minutes before cancellation. Guests are reminded that seatings are limited to 2 hours max. All members of parties must be present to be seated.

    The food was delicious and served fast. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. With the exception of the loud chatter and music overhead trying to keep up the the noise level. The experience was good but if you want a better outcome. I suggest sitting outside away from the distraction of the hustle inside.

    The Food and service was Great. The Restaurant was mallet than I thought. We were put in a corner that was tight. Little pricey For 250.00 I was expecting little different atmosphere. But would Eat there again.

    Food was less than lackluster, except for the bread, which was very good, I was unimpressed by every thing else. We had 2 crab dips, one we didn't like at all and ordered another. It was OK. The risotto that came with my trouggt was so over salted I couldn't eat anything more as it literally burned my taste buds.

    Crazy over-priced for tiny servings. Have to order way more food as servings are so small. Taste is nothing to write home about, good but not outstanding. Small place, a bit crowded and too loud. Limited drink menu. We eat out a lot and no one In our party was pleased or is likely to ever return.

    Food was decent. A little overpriced for what it is. Cocktails were good. Table seating wasn’t ideal. Sat in the middle of the dining room, directly where the servers expo food. I fell like that table placement is really unnecessary. It’s just in an odd place. They forgot part of our appetizers and part of our meal, but were apologetic each time. Server was lacking in personality.

    We do not recommend it. We are not going back. Being greeted by a hostile hostess is not a good first impression. Waiting over 35 minutes to be seated at a table that was open the entire time is a sign of poor management. The crab salad smelled fishy. Portion sizes vary widely between dishes. For example, the spinach salad was a good size. However, the grilled Cesar salad was barely more than a tasting. The scallop sizes were not uniform, from a small one-bite to large. And yet theywere chewy and required a knife to cut. Finally, the cocktails were watered down. Overall, two thumbs down!

    Rocksalt never disappoints on food quality, they are always innovating and their culinary team is adept at creating amazing dishes, but portion size for restaurant week was a little underwhelming. We will be back though, hard to beat those oysters from the Rappahannock!

    We went for Restaurant Week. Was our first time there. Tuna ceviche appetizer was pretty small…was good but there wasn’t a whole lot of tuna in it…I was wishing that I would have gone with the oysters. Gaspacho was my next course…was good (but again a very small amount) and had a few shrimp in it. The best part of the meal was the scallops. It was Tuesday and we took advantage of the 1/2 price bottles of wine. Overall for $45 and an automatic 22% gratuity I thought it was a little pricey for the amount of food….and weren’t told about the 22% automatic gratuity until after the meal when the check was delivered.

    CHECK YOUR BILL!! We went to Queens feast last night and I clearly ordered off the Queens feast menu (as did the rest of our party) but when the bill came my items were charged at the à la carte price. I practically had to argue with the staff that I had indeed ordered off the special menu when they accused me of ordering the wrong mussel dish. I even pointed at the menu when I ordered so there would be no mistake. Also, the "Lump Crab Meat" salad was a joke. It came out looking like Tuna salad from a diner. They finally did adjust the bill, but by that time it ruined the dining out experience. It's not like we were trying to get a cheap meal, we had ordered additional dishes and drinks as well.

    The food at RockSalt was fantastic! We enjoyed every dish that was prepared. I'd definitely go back again- maybe on a cooler night where you can eat outside as the inside is quite noisy. Our server, Clarissa, was very attentive and charming.

    Visited for Charlotte Queens Feast. Whole grilled flounder was an upcharge option for queens feast. Entire meal was outstanding and the flounder was excellent. With the upcharge the meal was very expensive. The 25.00 extra just to get flounder was way too much. We made the flounder decision so we knew the drill. We will return………..

    Completely mediocre. A seafood restaurant that only had NC Trout and Flounder as Fresh Catch on a Friday night. There’s a high end Seafood Market less than 2 miles away… I was totally unimpressed by this experience. Felt to me like this restaurant didn’t really want to be open. There are so many excellent restaurants in the Queen City these days - no need to settle.

    Past experiences have been good, but not this time. We waited 45 minutes for our cocktails. Had to get up and go to the bar to ask about them. Manager apologized, but did not offer to comp the drinks. Our salads came out with our entrees. Fish of the day was very good, not sure if worth the 50+ price. 4 adults and one toddler was a “large party”, so then they automatically added a 22% gratuity. The evening was a major disappointment, we are not inclined to return there

    As usual the food is excellent in quality, unfortunately this time when ordering a second round of drinks when the main course was delivered, resulted in us finishing the food before the drinks arrived. The server apologised and the drinks were removed from the check, but not having drinks while eating was disappointing.
