This was my second time coming here and like last time we had an excellent experience. I highly recommend the clams casino and the crab dip as appetizers. The first time I was there I had a fillet and it was great this time I got a pork chop that was cooked medium and it was excellent. Our server was very helpful and picking out a wine.I definitely want to try and come back for New Year’s if possible.

Seating accommodations were tight for 2. Plus the wait was pretty long so we had to pack dinner to go.

I always have a lovely time at Salt, whether with family or my partner! The service is great, the food is always outstanding and the entree portions are pretty big. The oysters and seafood are always fresh and tasty. The cocktails are hand-crafted and lovely and they have a good wine list as well.

Food was very good - well prepared (not overcooked), good presentation, and delicious! If anything, portions were on the small side.

The seafood is fresh and delicious. There is a variety of shellfish and fish to choose from. The service is knowledgeable without being intrusive , but is right at your table when needed. If you are a lover of seafood, this is your place. Be sure to make a reservation.

Trendy spot to dine. Parking to get to this restaurant is ridiculous.Must allow extra time to make your reservation on time. Food was excellent, hot food served hot and cold food ice cold.Temperatures were perfect. Waiter was knowledgeable and attentive..The tables are extremely small. Noise level was quite high. Overall the experience at Salt was unique and enlightening.I think a dress code would be a good idea. Drink prices were on the high side along with the food.Overall a descent night out.

Our server Mirriam and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make our table happy. Mirriam made great suggestions for menu items and made sure our table was clean before each course. Another server that poured our wine, Mike M, was cheerful and great at wine service. EVERYONE finished their plates and were more than happy with their food. We came in to spend time with family from out of town and they decided they have to come back in town to make a visit to Salt. We were glad we were able to share what we think is the best restaurant in New Brunswick. The staff were all great in their steps of service and will be back again.

We had yet another fantastic meal with outstanding service. I love this restaurant. Always has fantastic specials each week. I had the Black Grouper and my girlfriend had Jerk Swordfish. Both meal were excellent. Our server Michael was very knowledgeable and did a great job. Only minor issue was constant interruptions from the busboy trying to clear dishes that we were still enjoying. He was a new young man who was just doing his best. Maybe a little coaching needed.
