My Wife took me to Salt for my Birthday.


The staff was very friendly and accommodating in seating us and bringing our drinks over from the bar. Our bartender and waiter were excellent. We ordered a few apps and the food was delicious. The lemoncello flute with birthday candle was a nice touch.

I met with childhood friends that I haven’t seen in a long time. The staff were extremely friendly and very welcoming. The food was very delicious. The atmosphere was very relaxing. We had a very lovely evening.

My family and I went there for our anniversary. We reserved a seat by the water only to be seated in the middle of a busy walking area. We requested to be moved and was told that the seats we requested to be moved to was researched for a party of six. When we looked around there were several tables that sat four that only had 2 ppl sitting. If you could hold the seats by the water for your party of six, why could you not hold a seat for four by the water in the same fashion? Back to the table we were seated in, we had a umbrella that provided zero shade (as we baked in the sun, and had the sun in our eyes). The bright spot was the food that was decent. However when we were ready for our bill it the the waiter 45 minutes to bring the bill take it back and return it. I will not be going back.

We always enjoy lunch at Salt and decided to try it for dinner. Our waiter, Max, was great. However, I gave lower stars for service because of the speed with which the kitchen staff sent out apps and entrees. Our appetizer came out within 3 minutes of ordering and our entrees were delivered as we just finished the appetizer. Obviously, appetizer plates were still on the table. Pet peeve of mine. Presentation of my halibut was quite ugly. Food was fine but don’t think we’ll return for dinner.

Don't usually write a review but....
Had shrimp cocktail and the bacon app. Shrimp were large but mushy. And the 2 bacon slabs were dry. For dinner my wife had halibut and I had frutti di mare. Halibut wasn't bad. As for the di marre the calamari was like rubber. The shrimp and mussels in it I enjoyed. Also a very small amount of pasta. For the prices this place charges I would not recommend. Drinks were good but expensive. Waiter was great as was the atmosphere. Also the manager came over to say hello. Very friendly but I wasn't honest when asked if we enjoyed are dinner. Wish we had a better experience. We should have went to Capital Grill.

It was a nice place but When you sit down at your table you have zero view of the water. You have to stand up to see the beautiful view. The drinks ridiculously expensive and probably not worth the money. It’s was just ok.

We made a reservation and were seated right away on arrival at a great table outside on the water. Our server was attentive and was helpful in drink recommendations. I had cucumber mint vodka spritzer. Very refreshing. We ordered mussels in white wine and garlic and they were tasty. My husband had the seafood risotto and I had the scallops. Both were flavorful and cooked well. We think the price point for the dishes was a little high for the amount of shellfish included in each dish, but overall we were not disappointed. It was a Friday early evening and we thought they may rush us out as it started to get busy. But that did not happen. We were able to sit and enjoy our meal and take our time. It was a lovely dinner.

The cocktails were delicious and the food was amazing. There are a lot of choices on the menu for just about anyone's palate. The space is so pretty and tables are well-spaced so you can have a conversation without people on top of you. The service was friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed our experience and will definitely come back. One very minor issue: it's a popular place and parking isn't easy. Use the valet and carpool if you can!

Food was very good, but quite expensive overall since I was there for lunch. Service was terrific, very friendly and accommodating. Ambiance was lovely, though music was a bit loud. I would recommend for a special occasion.

It was a very pleasant experience. Staff all friendly and helpful. Ambiance lovely. Prices are a bit high. For example a plastic cup of iced tea (which may have come from a bottle of Snapple) was $4.00.
That said, you should definitely try Salt!

We were a party of six. We were seated right away, at two round tables for four. We asked to be seated at a table next to us that was empty till we finished our dinner. We were told it would be busy and they were sorry.
This was early sat evening and they were out of several things on the menu. One example was scallops at a seafood Resturant early on a sat evening. Service was ok but we had to ask for more paper napkins 3 times.
For a $$$ Resturant all aspects of eating at a nice testers that on the water should be more on point.

Ordered the lobster roll. Too much butter on the bread and it was burnt. Not worth the price and wasn’t tasty. We advised the manager who said he would take care of us and that consisted of a dessert which we could’ve passed on. They were advised the Bathroom had no soap or toilet paper and filthy with toilet paper thrown all over the floor. After dinner I went back the conditions were the same. This restaurant is expected to do better. We’re not at a fast food joint and not paying fast food prices. This is not our first time but won’t be returning!
