    First time eating at Salt. The vibe was pretty mellow--a good place for dinner with friends. All of the food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We especially enjoyed the Tuna Tartare Nachos. We sampled many of the signature House Cocktails, all of which were unusual and sophisticated, but not so strange that a palate that enjoys a standard Margarita would be disappointed. The main course menu was limited, but had something for everyone (no one in our party was vegan so I can't speak to that). The service was attentive and our server was knowledgeable and helpful. Overall we had a very pleasant experience and would definitely return.

    SaltResponded on January 23, 2023Amy, we are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience! Thank you for joining us and we hope to host you again soon!

    The reviews were so good for Salt, and I think we expected so much more. We heard it was a speakeasy atmosphere and it really could be but speakeasy it is not. If you are trying to be a speakeasy have the staff wear uniforms or outfits with the era and play something other than techno or whatever was playing because it wasn’t very good. Drinks were really good. Food was good, not the best, but it was good. Because of location we will probably never go back, parking is pretty much nonexistent. If I worked in the area I would go for happy hour but would not make this a destination.

    We absolutely love this place. Would have given 5 stars if not for the sticky pork buns. They were way too spicy and sort of screwed up our palates after eating them. The gnocchi, calamari and braised beef dishes were outstanding. The drinks are also incredible. My husband got a mezcal drink that was set on fire and smelled so good. Highly recommend the Salt experience!

    Service-great Food- great Prices-decent considering the area Noise- not loud, not silent but right in the middle Only real negative was that the indoor temperature was a bit cold but we believe it was the feel this place wanted to give, of a cold basement. After a few minutes and a drink we felt fine.

    The server was really sweet and nice. However, the food was cold on top and really hot in the bottom almost as if the food was microwaved. I ordered the Bolognese and found a piece of plastic and egg shell. After mentioning it the manager came out apologized and asked if I wanted a new plate (I had already finished the food and found the plastic and egg shell on my last bite) I was already full so I did not want a new plate and the manager took my plate away and didnt say anything after. The server actually apologized twice more. So service is great but management can be improved. The ambience is great so I would only suggest this place for a quick drink. Nothing more. I for one will probably never go back
