Best in Saratoga! Never disappoints. Drinks are innovative with a twist to the classics. Cant go wrong with steak or seafood they know how to prepare an outstanding meal.

A New Year’s Eve to remember. The food was rich and unctuous and the staff engaging! The short rib ragu with fazzoletti pasta was amazing!

Do yourself a favor and indulge in one of the dry aged steaks. It’s the kind of meal that makes all conversation stop while your eyes roll back in your head and you moan with the pleasure of each perfect, beefy bite. Food really doesn’t get much better than this. The wine program is also truly excellent, as are the service and the desserts.

the portions are getting smaller, for the price.

The lobster bisque soup had maybe 4 or 5 tablespoons of sauce

One filet mignon was over done

Other than these issues the dinner was fine

Very good food but pretty overpriced. I mean, it's not 5 Star good food but it's good. If cost is not a concern, go for it! The service was outstanding.

Salt & Char is great. From the salted butter for the bread, to the appetizers (shrimp cocktail) and drinks, everything was awesome. We loved the atmosphere and our waiter was very professional. Highly recommend.

We specifically went to Salt & Char because we wanted to order the Seafood Tower. I should have known better than to order seafood at a restaurant that specialized in steak. The oysters and shrimp were very good. However, the salmon & tuna tartare had no seasoning and were unappealing. The tuna tartare tasted fishy. The lobster was tough and obviously not freshly cooked at the restaurant. The crab "salad" was no salad at all. It was just meat and tastless. We were so disappointed we did not stay to order a steak. I can't recommend this restaurant.

Wow, I can't even explain just how amazing this place was. Me and my friend has the tomahawk 40 oz, totally worth it. Its pricey, however, I ate it 3 times and my male friend twice!
We thoroughly enjoyed the polenta, gurnip and pearl potatoe sides. The turnips where atop a butternut squash puree that was exquisite and the polenta tasted like corn mac and cheese! I suggest getting a bottle of wine as it's cheaper and goes great with red meat.
I will be going back asap!

Everything was good, nothing was outstanding, other than the service. I thought the food was overpriced. I’ve had the same meal at other steakhouses that were just as good if not better for quite a bit less.

Service was amazing. Food was good, but not what I’d expect for the price. Mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box. Steak was delicious. Everything else was good but not outstanding.

This was one of the best meals I've had. For apps, the beef carpaccio was only good, but the oysters and shrimp cocktail were outstanding. The Night Owl cocktail was delicious. For our entree, I had lamb chops (best I've ever had) and my wife had a perfectly cooked filet. Sides of carrots, polenta and turnips were all fantastic. Dessert was pumpkin creme brulee and homemade donuts, both terrific.

Exceptional is the only way to describe Salt & Char. The atmosphere was wonderful. Carly, our server could not have been more lovely, witty and helpful. She made our experience better than we could have hoped. The food was beyond exquisite. The clothesline bacon was outrageous, the pastrami salmon was far above expectations, the tomahawk ribeye special for two simply melted in your mouth, as did the pearl potatoes with creme fraiche, and caviar. We went for hubby's birthday and dessert did not disappoint as he had the can-o-cake chock full of decadent chocolate cake, creme anglaise, Heath bar, ice cream and whipped cream. I indulged in the pumpkin creme brulee with the pumpkin seed brittle and the almond crumble. It was perfectly light, not heavy like other's creme brulee. The entire experience was worth 2 1/2-hour trip and we are already making plans to return for my birthday. Salt & Char is officially "our place".
