SALA is always a solid choice for dining & drinks.
The salmon board was delicious as well as the fish & shrimp tacos.
Ambiance never disappoints and the location is great.
It is a definite bonus if you live in the neighborhood.

This was our second time and we were very disappointed. The specialty drinks are made with low end bourbon, tequila and vodka. The crawfish beignets were all bread and no crawfish. The spinach and artichoke dip lacked flavor and didn’t have any hint of garlic in it that would have made a big difference . The calamari is good but the sauce they used does not taste like it’s made from scratch. We will not go back.

We are hooked on the burgers, although I did stray and have soft shell crab last visit, but I went back to burgers again.

Food was great. Food has been great both times I’ve eaten there. I live out of town and when coming in town I made the reservation to dine at Sala.

Waitress was a bit disoriented. Said she hadn’t worked their in a year and she had been at waitressing since 6:30 am. While I appreciate she’s a hard worker, it shouldn’t affect our dining experience.

We were 3 ladies meeting for dinner as I had just gotten in town. I ordered champagne. She apparently didn’t know how to serve it cause I had to turn my head when she was opening it. In The event the cork flew out, it was pointed right at me and would have hit me in the face. She took 2 of our orders and started walking away without taking the 3rd ladies order. We had to call her back to take the other lady’s order. We all three substituted a side salad for potatoes. At checkout one lady was upset as the salad was an up charge and the waitress didn’t bother to advise us prior to the change in order.

Love the food and atmosphere but this time the service wasn’t great.

We have been to Sala since the pandemic and reopening and we found it very safe. Saturday night the left side of Restuarant 2 tables were placed next to each other with 6 people at each table and no social distancing, people were very close to each other. Our waiter wore his mask below his nose. It concerned me and my wife. Service was exceptionally slow causing tables not to turn timely crowding people inside restaurant. I have supported Sala since its opening and I feel owners need to be made aware of the actions of their staff.

We dined at Sala on Saturday afternoon. Had the soft shell crab Benedict. It was outstanding. Very large crab with two perfectly poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. We also had the bottomless mimosas. Will definitely dine there again. Can’t wait to try their other offerings.

Our server Nikki was wonderful. The cocktails were phenomenal, I highly recommend the coconut mojito. The duck empanadas were outstanding, and the entrees were excellent. The zeppoli were the perfect size and texture., and the perfect light sweet bite to end the meal. We will make this spot a regular on our restaurant repertoire. The only critique I have would be that the Fra diavolo sauce was too sweet.

Made a reservation 15 minutes prior to the reservation time. The hostess wanted to sit us in the sun which we objected to. They said that due to the limited seating that is all they had and that their reservations would not allow us to be seated in one of the open (not blocked for social distancing) tables. The feeling I got was that the hostess didn't want to give us what we wanted. Why couldn't the next reservation sit in the sun. We left rather than sit in the sun.
