                                              Food was excellent, as usual, and the service was impeccable. Salt is one of our favorites.

                                              The prices have gone up by not including things (No soup or salad with steaks) and up charge for Risoto, as well as charging a service fee for using credit card. Still really good food and we will return though may be a while need to save more money

                                              Beautiful restaurant. Great atmosphere. Wonderful service. Food was nothing special. We were hoping for more vegetarian options, and different flavors and variety.

                                              The food was okay but the items offered were typical of supper club fare. I expected more from a high end restaurant charging high end prices.

                                              The buffet was very well presented. The food was delicious. We were seated soon after arriving. Drinks took a bit but it was very busy. We were greeted by the owner upon arriving. All in all very good.

                                              Our family of 10 enjoyed Mothers Day brunch. Our server, Tony, was exceptional. Food outstanding. The only opportunity was cost. We were surprised that a beverage wasn’t included with the meal.

                                              Drinks, appetizers, salad and soup was good including dessert. Just do not order an entrée. I had the Grilled Red Snapper & Shrimp and I thought it was spicy, but it was truly just sooo salty, I maybe ate 10% of my dish, and it didnt even come on a salt block! I was up all night drinking water. My husband had the Salt Block Tomahawk & Potato Hash. He had the option to move the pork chop to another plate when it came to the table, however, there was stopping the salt process, it was already too far gone of an overload of salt. Tried it out to see what it hype was about, and was simply let down.

                                              The steak was good. The rest of the food was subpar. I ordered a mojito- it was all simple syrup not right at all. The mashed potatoes were just the mashed potatoes were just the same as a crappy chain restaurant. Risotto was just mush. We were a party of 2 seated by the big top tables- it was very loud. Not a good atmosphere at all. The service was good though.

                                              My husband and I went to salt for our anniversary. This was our 2nd time there. And both times, the food was amazing - I had loved everything I've had there. Such great flavor! They were short staffed (like many other places). We had reservations at 7pm and we were not seated until 7:45. We were there for a total of 3 hours by the time we left.

                                              When we entered the bar area the bartender ignored us then proceeded to get other customers orders. Even the ones that walked in after us. Food wasn’t very good. But the drinks were good! I won’t be coming back anytime soon.

                                              The bar is gorgeous! The dining room was large and provided sufficient spacing between tables so we didn’t need to worry about being disturbed or disturbing others. Everything we ordered was delicious! Cheese bites, pretzel (so so good), crab cakes for appetizers. Chicken cutlets, filets, red snapper — all were delicious and portions were good. We will return!

                                              Our food was very good , but was it worth the price? Portions for four of us were small. Plate was filled out with potato and veg. We were there for a birthday. We ordered one piece of cake, which was average size, to go and were charged $10. One person ordered their steak grilled because he did not want the salt block. Steak did not look grilled and was salty. Would we go back--maybe for a couple of menu items. Service was very slow which is understandable because of the help shortage. Music was turned up loud which did not bode well for fine dining. Also, would have been nice to have rolls or bread with the salad (which of course was extra).

                                              It was especially busy due to prom. Food came out quickly but we were brought the wrong order twice. No problem, servers were very nice. Best steak around, delicious risotto.

                                              A group of 6 of us met here for dinner. The hostess and wait staff were friendly. We tried a variety of food options - several starters, several entrees, and 4 desserts. Of all of the dishes, sadly there was one one that stood out as being great. Some were fine but not great - others were not up to expectations. (For example, the red velvet cake was very dry, while the flourless cake was pretty good. The steak was good, but the risotto’s texture was mush.). I think they’re trying hard and deserve a chance - we just didn’t find a “killer dish” here yet.

                                              Drove 45 miles to eat here. Will make a return trip soon. Halibut was awesome.

                                              Me and my boyfriend have been here twice now, and it has met our expectations and then some every time! I love the way the steak just melts in your mouth, it is always done to perfection. We tell our friends about here all the time!

                                              Drinks were amazing, ambience was very nice. Food was good. I had the halibut special but it was warm, not hot. I did NOT let them know as it was still good, just not hot. Everyone else had steak and they really enjoyed them. I'm looking forward to going back - maybe just for drinks and apps next time.

                                              I was happy to see what they did with the building, it looks beautiful! The price point for the food was reasonable as well. I believe our waitress forgot about us at the end based on her statements and the time that passed, but overall we would go back!

                                              We were there one time before and food was great. This time the ribeye steak was quite fatty and not as good for the price. We were there for happy hour but no break on the cocktails. Overall, I guess we expected more consistency for the prices. So, we would recommend that people try it but can’t say that it was up to our high expectations on that particular night.

                                              Food was delicious, as always! When we asked about any specials, only one thing was mentioned. Later, we heard our waitress telling another table about multiple specials they had. Definitely our favorite place in the Appleton area though!

                                              The food is absolutely fantastic. Best steak I've ever had. That said, I found the 3% credit card fee totally absurd on a meal for three people that was $200.

                                              A different way of cooking/presentation, food and service were both great! It looks fancy, but has a very easy going vibe. We will be returning!

                                              This is not your average restaurant. From the moment you walk in you feel everything is upscale with a clean, modern feel. Every meal I’ve had here is delicious and there are few places in the area with such quality of ingredients. The drinks are delicious, some of the best martinis around. In all this is a great place to go for some good pampering. This is not a cheap place, but it’s an experience that is definitely worth the price.

                                              This was a place for anyone who really enjoys the taste of salty food. Other than the salt, there were not any seasoning or anything else added. Wait staff was amazing and food was okay. The price for a steak, I would actually prefer to go elsewhere as it didn't taste as good as I anticipated.
