    Have eaten here 3 times and every time the food, drinks, and service have been excellent. Highly recommend the salt and smoke cocktail, mahi mahi bites, crab cakes, the grilled bread, and whatever the off the dock special is that night. Have also have had the sashimi appetizer and scallop dinner before and both were so good. Did not save room for dessert but the menu was tempting and looked tasty.

    The food was great and had great presentation. The waitress was friendly and available. My reservation was at 5:30, I arrived early and they seated me right away. It did get very noisy once the place was about half full... that may not bother some, but I prefer a more quiet dining experience. It was a bit pricy, but everything is inflated now. I do plan on returning to eat at Salt again.

    The food was exquisite, from the appitizers to the meals and craft cocktails. ( I highly reccommend the Salted Carmel Martini for dessert!) True customer service is hard to find these days and Alexa was amazing! She was so educated on the menu with a terrific sense of humor. She was responsive and did a great job of anticipating our needs. Without a doubt, we will return...soon! :)

    The service at Salt was fantastic. From the hostess to the wait staff. Everyone was attentive and very nice. As for the food, we started with the skillet bread with orange pepper butter. It was delicious. My husband had the Lobster Mac and Cheese which was decadent and just like you want a Mac and cheese to taste. I had a yellow snapper and lobster risotto special which was very good. It was a little too rich and could have used a little more acid or more greens to provide some relief. Overall it was a great meal and we will go back.

    My experience at Salt on Mass tonight was disappointing. I ordered the lamp chop lollipops medium rare. This is not a difficult dish to make. They served them very dry and well done. The bartender lady was apologetic and re-ordered them rare the next time. This time, half were medium rare, and the other half were well done again. They were cut so thin that it was not surprising that they were overcooked and dry. My husband had the rare tuna dish which was fine. I felt that since my dinner was cooked wrong twice, it would have been nice to offer me a comped drink or dessert. But, the bartender and manager never offered me anything to make up for a disappointing dinner. I’m not planning to go back there again. It’s not hard to take lamp chops off the grill when they’re done! The restaurant was less than half full so one can’t blame it on being overly busy. It seemed like the kitchen was just being careless and hoped customers would just put up with poor cooking. This customer won’t be returning there for a poorly cooked expensive dinner!

    Everyone loved their meals. I’m not a huge fish / seafood eater but Salt is converting me. Crab cakes, awesome, calamari, awesome, I had the parm crusted Sea bass….you guessed it, awesome! My wife had the special which was yellow tail snapper with parm risotto, also awesome. Driven by many times, finally took a chance and will for sure be back.

    We had a great experience 6/14/22 - from the host who seated us to the outstanding waiter "Brandon" who provided expert service throughout the meal! For appetizers, we had a wedge salad, crab cakes and mahi mahi bites - all excellent! For entrees, the scallaps and mahi mahi were great! Brandon was one of the best waiters we've had in many, many years - highly recommended!

    We love Salt on Mass and will come as often as we can. The food is exemplary! Fantastic quality, presentation, freshness, and flavor! We also appreciate the seafood-centric variety. Also, the cocktails are delicious and effective! Order the skillet bread with appetizers to ensure it's ready with the entrees...that orange blossom honey butter with black sea salt is unprecedented and unbeatable!

    First time. Atmosphere upscale cool. Interaction with all Salt folks was a subtle 10 of 10. Presentation & taste were terrifically appealing & good. We had a 9 week old grandson joint our party of 4. Every accommodation was suggested or made. Grandson was impressed as he hardly uttered a peep. We cannot remember another time are we had such a wonderful, full picture experience at a cool, moderately upscale establishment. Congratulations to management & staff! Very impressive hitting every little detail last night. Maintaining/improving from that level is & will always be your challenge. Great work!

    I set-up the appointment for high top tables, which I didn’t know means in the bar. We had a toddler and baby in our group, so we couldn’t sit in the bar. They were quick to accommodate our group, and put us in a private room, it was perfect! The staff was awesome, the atmosphere great and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant.

We arrived for an early dinner and we were Brandon's first table for the day. He had excellent recommendations and his energy demonstrated his desire to please.
