We waited a long time to be acknowledged. 6-8 minutes, our drinks took forever and the food was mediocre at best. The ambiance was great but I won’t be returning.

The lobster Mac smelled like dog and didn’t taste too good either. My date barely ate any of her salmon and I don’t think she likes me now because of the ambiance at salt so (: thanks

Took my son to Salt the night before surgery. Everything we ordered was delicious. Poke’ very fresh and tasty, kung pao shrimp, salmon with seared brussel sprouts, surf/turf and Yukon gold mashed. Service was great, manager accommodating. I think this restaurant continues to get better. Highly recommend trying it.

We reserved a table for our anniversary. I wish I remembered our servers name because she was perfect. I got the market special which was amber jack with the garlic lime sauce and Parmesan risotto and it was unbelievably good. My husband got the chicken fried chicken and he loved it, but I thought it tasted bland compared to mine. I had 2 cocktails; the jeweled mule and the one that was a blackberry margarita; they were both 10/10. I can’t even choose which one I liked better. We also got the chicken dumplings for an appetizer; 2 thumbs up on those. And the best part of dinner was the piece of hummingbird cake; OMG! Just out of this world. I can’t remember the last time I ate a dinner where literally everything I ate was that good.

Our Server was great! We had the Devour menu and it was not “dumbed down” because of that...same quality and portion size as if we had ordered from the regular menu. Not all restaurants do that. Will definitely go back without it being Devour week.

Salt is a must visit multiple times, especially for special occasions. One of our favorite places in Indy.

Be warned about the Mass Avenue street closure, makes it a little hard to get to, but garage parking is across the street from the old national center.

Reservations necessary, especially if you want sit outside.

Go, you won’t regret it.

Salt is a wonderful dining experience. This was my second time dining with them. I ate their a year ago and had the same server this time (Tony) who was phenomenal. The service was excellent, and the food was incredible. This is the place to go if you want a memorable dining experience!

I had Argentinian salmon which was luscious. My friends had the seafood cobb salad which they loved. My wine was excellent and the chocolate opera mousse cake divine. The owner was present and very gracious. A great place.

A friend and I dined at Salt on Mass during Devour Downtown. We were given the Devour Downtown menu along with the regular menu without asking. Not all participating restaurants do that. The food was fresh, the portions were generous and the cocktails were delicious. Our server Tony was prompt with water refills and knowledgeable about the menu. It was a great evening. On my visit, I'll bring my husband.

Would never go back. The manager is awful. We watched him drop a steak knife on the floor , pick it up and continue on to the table. Mop was sitting on the floor in front of our table. Manager and server stood behind our table and talked loudly to each other. Literally right over my shoulder. Too much too share

Salt on Mass has been under the direction of our Manager for 2+ years and has flourished, even in the middle of a pandemic. He also stands behind our team when we have guests who publicly berate them. After reviewing video footage it was a dirty butter knife that had fallen on the floor. Our Manager retrieved and placed the knife in a dish tub. He did have to pass by other tables in order to do so. The mop was used to clean up a spill. We will address staff as to why it was left in plain site.

Our dining experience was spectacular! Both of our entrees (Chilean Sea Bass/Salmon) were cooked to tender perfection. The service was just the right balance of attentive without being over-bearing. Truly a gem of a seafood restaurant....

We were having a Mother/Daughter weekend. We choose Salt on Mass for the menu and that we could make reservations. We were greeted at the door and taken to our table where our server Ashley greeted us and provided us with water. Ashley answered all our questions and took our order. The food was AMAZING and the service was perfect. We will definitely return to Salt on Mass on our next trip to Indy.

Incredible food and incredible staff! Had a family dinner before my daughter left for college. Wasn’t sure if there would be enough options for my non-seafood family member but there definitely were. Everyone thought their meal was delicious! Thank you SALT for a wonderful night!! Can’t wait to come back!!

Went during COVID and it was a beautiful evening. Asked to sit on patio but could not due to social distancing. The maitre de took the initiative to create another table on a wide sidewalk. Food was amazing. Sauces incredible.

We waited awhile for service, however, the manager was very good and offered us an appetizer on the house. Had the surf & turf which was very good. Had the Tuna also was very good. Very friendly place good food a bit noisy but overall a good place for some good food. It 8s a little pricey but the quality of food will out way the price. I would give it 4 stars.
