    We thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful dinner at Salt starting with delectable bowls of French Onion soup (the best we’ve had anywhere) and a savory White Bean, Carrot and Kale soup with just the right amount of heat. The 16 oz. New York Strip was seasoned and grilled to perfection and the Pappardelle was scrumptious! Although we didn’t save room for dessert, there were many tempting and mouthwatering choices. The staff, as always, was wonderfully attentive, knowledgeable and personable. We’re looking forward to our next visit to Salt to sample more of their new menu offerings.

    Dining in the globes at SALT was such a cool experience! (We happened to go around sunset and wow the views were spectacular!) My fiancé and I had a beautiful night celebrating our anniversary! The heaters in the globes kept us nice and warm, there were even blankets available! The food was outstanding too! Our favorites were the New York rib eye, the bacon and brussel sprout appetizer and the chocolate torte. We will definitely be back with friends!

    We usually come to salt for the atmosphere and the food on Valentine’s Day. However this year has been a disappointment, we arrived at 7 for our 7pm reservation. We waited 20 minutes to be seated, once seated we were waiting for over an hour for our food. They changed the food menu and drink menu completely. The menu does not match what their Facebook says. The food itself was okay but over priced. This place used to be our every year Valentine’s Day spot, but now it won’t be.

    Was told when we were seated at 7pm that we would have until 8:30 to finish our meals and close out. We ordered around 7:20-7:30 and the food did not arrive until 8:30. The food was pricey but good, and the wait was excessive.

    Disappointed they changed the menu like 3-4 days prior to Valentines Day. We made reservations prior to that based on the previous menu. Was very bummed to go there specifically for portabella fries and they were no longer on the menu.

    Overpriced bread service ($7) for flavorless bread and butter. Both our steaks were overcooked and the fillet was tough, not tender. Sides were just OK and the risotto was certainly not worth the $5 upcharge). Excellent waitress but the food was sub par.

    Food was phenomenal. We had Brussels appetizer, I had apple cider chicken and hubby had tenderloin. Both delicious. Carrot cake to finish was delicious but was hoping for something maybe made in house like creme brulee. Our sever was okay. I ordered a bottle of wine and just received the glass and my husband had no drink until I could find the server to tell her we anticipated a bottle. I was still charged for the glass and the bottle. We were not checked on and we filled our own wine glasses. There was then an issue with the price of the bottle, no apologies, just "nice catch". She was unenthusiastic and paid minimal attention. Love the location and the sleek black and white theming.

    The food was excellent (especially the bacon roasted brussel sprouts). Service was very good: friendly and timely. For some reason every time we go we end up seated next to a large table. The group we were next to were so loud that we endednup having to nearly shout to hear each other at our table. The way the tables are positioned and where we were seated half of the neighboring table was facing us directly and given their volume any ambience we would have otherwise enjoyed was ruined. Not the first time either. A little bit of bad luck seems to be involved as other parts of the restaurant were much quieter. Again, not sure why, but every time we go the bar area ends up being much quieter than the dining room.

    The food was fresh and delicious. My steak, prepared on the Himalayan rock salt, was flavorful and tender. My husband reported the scallops were tender and delicious. It was not inexpensive but for a special occasion it was a treat.

    The atmosphere was rather stark for being Christmas weekend. The wait staff was very accommodating when we asked to be seated at a larger table. The drinks, appetizers and main course were timed out pretty well so we did not feel rushed or bored. The scallops were great... presentation perfect. The sirloin seemed artificially tender but cooked perfectly. The ribeye had good flavor but was very thin and fatty. The tenderloin was great. The vegetable for the night was asparagus. It was quite large and I feared it was going to be tough & woody. What a surprise... it was the most tender and flavorful asparagus I have ever had. All in all it was a great experience.

    Our server was amazing but, the food was awful. They were out of tenderloin & sirloin, ribeye was the only option, and it had no flavor or seasoning at all. We were given shrimp instead of the salmon, the wedge salad was a chopped salad, they only food that was enjoyable was the nachos.

    Everything food wise was amazing but this is the second time I have been in a short while and the hostess is always scattered brain. Really a flaw when you first walk in the door and that’s the impression. Another time we were told we couldn’t wait at the bar for the other couple joining us because they were getting ready for a groups Christmas party that would be arriving an hour…
