We had been to Salt one other time and really enjoyed it. Last night we wanted to have dinner after a concert at the Murat Theater. The concert was over at 945p. The last reservation was at 930p. I called the restaurant to see if there was any flexibility and they said there was none. My wife and I decided we would leave the concert early to make the 930p reservation. I checked the website of the restaurant and it said they closed at 10p. We got to the restaurant and were seated quickly as there were few people in the restaurant. Our server was pleasant and attentive through the meal. From where we were seated, we could see the bar and the activities there. Around 10p I noticed our server, the bar tender, and the manager talking. When they were done, our server came directly to our table and said she needed to take my cocktail glass even though I was not finished. I gave her the glass as requested as I did not want to delay her. As we were walking out I saw the manager and told him of how we felt rushed by the server taking the glass, he proceeded to loudly request the server to come over where he then began to question and reprimand her in front of us. I tried to speak up for the server as it appeared she was only executing on the direction of the manager. I then tried to explain that we were at the restaurant by 930p for the reservation and that their website stated they closed at 10p. He said they do not take food orders past 930p and 10p was when they actually close the doors and get people to leave. I certainly understand that the restaurant business can be difficult but I think the interactions we experienced do not make this restaurant a welcoming environment to frequent. My hope is that they can see this post and consider the view from the guest’s perspective. Good luck to future guests and to the business. I think the ambiance and food are great, but if the service and attitude of the staff is not good they will likely not be successful.

Fun night with friends but a sub-par experience at Salt. The drinks were expensive, but only halfway full. The service wasn’t very prompt and we felt like we were always waiting a long time for the waitress. I ordered the mahi mahi, and while it was good, it was definitely over cooked. I wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to go back.

Wonderful place! We were stuck in traffic and they still received us, 20 minutes before they close. Food was excellent, service was impeccable and they were so nice! I’ll definitely be back as soon as possible. Thank you!

Good flavors, but consistently warm, not hot. Lobster bisque a cream of lobster, scallops a bit lifeless, and again, all courses came out warm/tepid. Crab cakes had nice coating and good flavor. Cauliflower side was outstanding, hot, flavorful and the hit of the meal. Saturday night and five sports TVs going. Full house and nobody watching. Is this a high end restaurant or sports bar on a Saturday night - seemed short of help.

We went to Salt for dinner prior to a concert. The meal started out well but quickly went downhill. Our waitress was pulled to the other side of the restaurant for a large party while we were waiting for our food and we barely saw her for the rest of our meal. She had the bartender come over and check on us and it took a fair amount of time to get our food. Two of our friends randomly came to Salt to get some drinks at the bar and we called them over to sit with us. After 20 minutes of no service they finally just ordered drinks at the bar to bring to the table. The bartender then came to check on us and repeatedly called our friends “joiners” and seemed quite miffed that our friends were sitting with us even though we they were just there for a drink. Overall, not the best experience for our first time there and the fact that it is a very expensive restaurant.

This was our 5th time into your restaurant. My wife is the seafood fan and really enjoys your offerings. This particular evening was marred by the serving of our main courses before we were finished with our salads. We hope that doesn't happen again in the future.

We had another delicious meal here. The snapper was great as was the cauliflower side. I prefer the prior style of grilled oysters they did, but more people probably like the current one. The beet salad was also very tasty and well prepared.

Started off with a mis-hap causing us to wait a bit extra before a waitress noticed and brought it to the attention if Manager. Took care of us for the wait, super friendly staff and very accommodating. Food was amazing. Definitely would go back, and recommend. A meal to remember. An experience more so than just dinner.

Tile fish was excellent, though portion could be a bit bigger. Risotto was perfect. Filet was properly done and excellent.

Shrimp cocktail was fine, though I have had better.

Cocktail menu is uninspired and could use retooling.
