Food was fantastic! It was a little loud at times in the bar area, but our party of 5 was still able to carry on a conversation just fine. Server and manager were very attentive! Our first experience at Salt on Mass and won't be our last!

One of the best meals we’ve ever had. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. I had the surf and turf with Mac & cheese as my side. My husband had swordfish, with broccolini. We also had clam chowder and oysters on the half shell. Excellent food and service to match.

Everything was fresh and delicious! Scalloos were amazing. Whatever you do, do not skip the bread!

Our wait person did not give us the tired opener -- "My name is so-and-so and I'll be taking care of you guys tonight." What a relief! She was surprisingly attentive, despite a bustling pre-theater crowd, and treated us like adults. Because of the crowd, the food service was slow, but worth the wait. The cocktail my wife had was great, too. We will definitely go back.

Everything was amazing, the attention from the wait staff was over the top. . The Sazerac and Reisling were wonderful. The bread with orange/honey butter was a perfect appetizer. I had the Mahi Mahi blackened with the asparagus and a bowl of clam chowder, my date had the Mahi Mahi blackened with the mac and cheese. The presentation and sauce on the fish were devine and the chowder was the best I've ever had. We both loved the fish and sides. It was a perfect meal prior to her surprise of going to Hamilton.

The food was delicious! The Kung Pao shrimp could have been my meal. It was so tasty and the shrimp very tender! It’s nice to find a restaurant with the quality of seafood we get when visiting the east coast. We will definitely return!

Really enjoyed our dinner at Salt. Hubby had a perfectly cooked Ribeye and I had fantastic Sea Bass. Both were prepared perfectly. Beautiful restaurant with a cozy area that sits a little above the bar area and where the tables are well-spaced for privacy.

Food was excellent. The menu was inaccurate in several items. Our waiter was inexperienced, talked too much and came on like he wanted to impress us. He did not and almost ruined the dinner. If we go back we'll request a different waiter.

It was our first time. Food was good and so was service. I was just a little disappointed they didn’t mention anything about our anniversary or so anything for it. Most restaurants recognize it somehow.

Our lovely waitress provided the best service in the city. Our food was fantastic and the oysters were amazing. The fish tastes fresh and is cooked perfectly. I cannot wait to go back and have dinner again. On another note, the wine list needs more diverse and interesting options as much on the list does not go with the food in any way.

This was our first visit to Salt. My husband and I were celebrating my birthday. I had heard good things about it from friends. We had a reservation for Tuesday at 7:00. We were lucky enough to get a parking spot right in front of the restaurant. From the minute we arrived we were greeted by a very nice gentleman who was kind enough to make change for us to feed the meter. He even went out of his way to go out with my husband and assist him with the meter. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgable and very attentive. She told us what the special was and even let us know how much it costs. My husband had the Halibut and I had the filet. Both were cook to perfection. Since it was my birthday they gave me and incredible dessert on the house. All in all it was a wonderful evening and we would definitely go back.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and it was our first time at Salt. There was a very loud gentleman sitting next to the bar, discussing his sex life. It was a bit uncomfortable, but we were still able to enjoy the food. Loved the fried green tomatoes and scallops. Our waiter presented us with the correct bill, but rang us out for one that was higher in price. Luckily I caught it and was able to get it fixed, but that was a bit worrisome.

Absolutely excellent food, perfectly seasoned. Beautiful presentation the way the food is plated. Service was prompt, polite and efficient. It is a bit loud near the bar, but it is a bar after all. So if you want it a bit quieter, sit in the area along the Mass Ave. windows.

We have eaten here three times and have never been disappointed. Reservations are recommended, since this restaurant seems to fill up quickly.

This is also a true dock to table restaurant.

We will be back.

Went here for our anniversary. My wife had been here before, but this was my first time. Reservations were at 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. We arrived at 6:45 and were seated and waited on immediately. We were never rushed and were provided great service. We were told upfront they were extremely busy and the kitchen was backed up. There were others around us that had to get to a concert and mentioned they waited 2 hours and never received their food so they left to make their event. We also waited about an hour before getting our food; however, we expressed to our server we were in no hurry and had a couple drinks and enjoyed the time together before our food arrived. It was a little loud due to the open floor concept, which was not that big of a deal. My wife ordered the halibut and I ordered the swordfish (market catch of the day). Both of our meals were incredible. Perfectly cooked, no "fishy" taste whatsoever. The portion sizes were perfect. The food was amazing! Hats off to the chef! We will go back when we can afford to do so; whereas, prices are on the high side; but understanding it's all fresh and it's a great time.

Food was outstanding. Service was great. Delivery of food took longer than normal. Normally not a big deal, but we had tickets for Fiddler on the Roof.
