    We went on a Tuesday which has a limited menu at this time. (We knew this in advance). So, we did not get to experience the full menu and sit down meal. The service and drinks provided by Brittany, our bartender were great.

    Food was excellent and great atmosphere. Service was good. The only thing I would recommend is to have the hostess stand more visible or some signage directing people to it. Overall a really great place!

    Lovely atmosphere, staff was friendly, our waitress was great and the dining room was nearly empty so there was hardly any noise. The food was okay. We had salmon with fried polenta and the lemon risotto with shrimp. The shrimp and salmon were prepared perfectly but the polenta was greasy and the risotto appeared to be made with regular white rice instead of an Arborio or Carnaroli making it less creamy than a traditional risotto should have been. There was also a distinct lack of seasoning for a place called salt I would have expected the food to have more flavor.

    This is our second time dining at Salt, and we were once again impressed with the food and service. The food is delicious and served swiftly. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. We love the comfy booths and relaxed, upscale atmosphere but really wish the pretty chandeliers had a softer white light.

    My boyfriend & I had reservations here for my birthday. The first thing we found was that we couldn't order anything listed from the online menu, which was super disappointing, but we were told they had just changed the entire menu & had not updated online. After some time checking out the new menu, I ordered the Grilled Chicken Tzatziki. I would give the chicken tzatziki 5 stars alone, the cook really did outdo himself here.. Unfortunately, we think they left my boyfriend's steak while cooking my chicken.. While they steak was seasoned & tasted good, it was cold. Definitely not the end of the world, but a lot of money to pay for cold steak & the waiter didn't come back until it was time to ask us about dessert, so he ate it cold. The decor is lovely. We went on a Wednesday so it wasn't busy. Would I go again? No, but I would most definitely order the chicken tzatziki for takeout :)

    SaltResponded on July 9, 2022Hi Amanda, we'd like to apologize for the discrepancy with menu's. The menu had been updated on facebook accordingly, but we had some technical issues and it hadn't been fixed until the next morning on our website. We're glad you enjoyed the chicken tzatziki, and sincerely apologize for the steak. Our steaks are our staple, and we usually get them out hot and cooked perfectly to order. We'll make sure this doesn't happen again, and hope you try us out in the future for a better experience!

    They are a little overpriced but my au poivre steak was delicious and my husband said the ribeye on the salt block was one of the best steaks he's ever had. It was also a little noisy in the dining room but could've just been the larger parties that were there. I would definitely recommend.

    SaltResponded on July 9, 2022Thank you for the review! We've taken your reviews into consideration and have released a new menu that have much more friendly prices! We've also been keeping larger parties in the back due to these reviews as well, as we've realized it can get quite loud in the front. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your food, and we definitely agree with your husband on our steaks! We hope to see you back!

    We dined at Salt for the second time and had another enjoyable experience. We were seated right away upon arrival of our reservation time. The food was delicious, unique and filling. Several staff members helped serve us and each one went above and beyond. It was a great evening out and great place to celebrate our anniversary.

    Salt is a very welcome addition to our area. Their signature steaks cooked on Himalayan salt blocks were fantastic, and the shareable plates are perfect for a large group. The service is very efficient and friendly. The interior is sleek and stylish but while the crystal chandeliers are attractive the use of bright white LED bulbs creates a harsh, cold lighting scheme.

    Everything from the minute you walk in the door is superb. The wait staff and bartenders are professional and very charming. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful experience. The beef tenderloin melts in your mouth and their vegetables were cooked to perfection with just enough seasoning. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone, but I wouldn’t take children here because the vibe is more for an adult evening out.

    Our server was great ~ however did not come by the table often enough to see if we needed anything ~ bussers came by more often. Served a glass of wine which was different then what was ordered . No one came by in time to tell this to until I was presented with check and then was told there was a new bartender and that was the issue. However was very impressed with the size of the appetizers and were very good. Entree of salmon was good. Chicken was fair. We will come back and try the steaks. Atmosphere and decor was very nice. I will definitely recommend.

    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
