First time dining at Saltine. Great experience. Wesley was a very engaging waitress. An asset to the dining experience. Look forward to returning
Joanna was our wait staff. Soft spoken knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Attentive and responsive
Another TERRIFIC date night at Saltine. Delicious meal (and the oysters are out of this world); outstanding service and great atmosphere. This has become our favorite restaurant and I will continue to recommend it to friends and colleagues. Can't wait to come back!!
A wonderful meal with excellent service! We will be back.
Very enjoyable time. Wife and I loved the food and service. Will deffinetly be coming back soon.
Beautiful environment, delicious food, creative menu, professional staff.
It was great. Drinks were great. Entree was great. Oysters were great. Service was great. What else could you want other than a little less pricey.
The brunch portions were a little small, but the food was great (one exception-my sister ordered the quinoa bowl which was undercooked and missing some of the key elements as described on the menu, and she didn't care for the breakfast mac & cheese, but the manager took the quinoa bowl off our check since it was the last thing to be brought to the table / waiting time). I highly enjoyed the bloody mary and mojitos we had, as well as the mixologist who was very personable and skilled. I would recommend to not come too hungry, and plan to spend at least $100. Great atmosphere and clean restaurant.
There were 4 people in our party. This review is a collection of comments from the group. Food was outstanding, our Server was very knowledgeable of the menu, the preparation, the ingredients and was very attentive. The restaurant was sensitive and well prepared to accommodate our food allergies. We highly recommend this restaurant!
We ate at Saltine for a pre-concert dinner on a Friday. The bar area was busy and animated, as it was happy hour. Definitely worth checking out! We were greated warmly and shown to the dining area, which was quiet and welcoming. Robert M. was our waiter and did an outstanding job. He was available and helpful, while giving us plenty of time to peruse the menu and enjoy the atmosphere. The menu presents a broad selection of cocktails and seafood starters. We enjoyed the Ultimate Crabcake appetizer and a salad. The crabcake had great flavor. It was full of lump crabmeat and colorfully presented. It ended up being the best part of the meal. We were less impressed with the seafood entrees, as we felt they were a tad overdone. Not enough to send back, but enough that some of the flavor was gone. The setting of the dining room and wonderful drinks and appetizers had us hoping to be wowed. Instead, the entrees were fairly standard. We grew up on the east coast and are seafood lovers. Those who prepare seafood regularly know that it should not be overcooked; take it out of the oven while still overdone, as it will continue to cook before serving. The lobster risotto was full of lobster meat, but the risotto was gummy from either sitting too long or too much cheese. The grilled swordfish was nicely plated, though bland. While some could argue that we should have chosen a more robust method of cooking (blackened or bronzed were other options), we prefer to let the flavor of the fish speak for itself. All in all, it was a wonderful evening out, made better by the fantastic staff (Thank you, Robert!). Next time, we will make a point of asking for less cooking time on the fish. Kudos to The Main and their wonderful restaurants. It has become our go-to place for pre-show meals.
Great food! The lobster dishes are worth it. Great friendly service! I would definitely return.
An excellent dinner in a convenient location! Great food, drinks, and service. Had oysters on the half shell and three different fish at our table. Everything was top shelf. I highly recommend for business or personal dining.
Great food, loud music so we sat on patio!
A very beautiful and classy upscale seafood restaurant !
It was very pricey for what it was. Our waitress was super nice, but very long winded. Every time she came to the table we would prepare for 5-10 spiel that we did not ask for or want. I ordered an extra dirty ketel one martini-- no vermouth-- and when it arrived, it had vermouth and was not dirty at all. When i brought this to the waitress, i was mortified when instead of taking the drink, she left and returned with a cup of olive juice. For our total check for 2 people being over $150-- i expected much more. The food was okay, nothing special. It was awkward hearing another waitress explain to the table next to us that the chef does not allow substitutions on sides depending on the entree.
Expensive for middle class folks but the food and ambience were excellent
Wild caught seafood, gluten-free options, and organic... Great service!
We had an amazing evening! The food was fantastic, the ambiance was perfect, and Martin, our waiter, was fabulous!! Thank you Saltine and Martin for a truly lovely evening!!
This was our second visit. We loved it the first time. We decided to try some of their Sunday "lobster-mania specials" on this visit. The ceviche was delicious-a little pricey for 3 tortilla chips filled with ceviche. The risotto was meh. The lobster was tasty but skimpy and the pasta was cold. Generally, risotto comes with an offer of fresh parmesan, but not this time. Also, small portion for $24. We informed our server who was quite good and he offered to re-make it. We declined as we had already eaten about 1/2. Just wish we had chosen other offerings. Robert was great though! We will consider returning but make better choices.
Reservation was for 4 of us. I appreciate the kind courtesy and the service was splendid.
New Brunch menu is awesome!
How was Saltine? LOUD. Very, very loud. I'm not sure when it became normal for restaurants to have the noise level of bars, but I'm not a fan. I actually enjoy my husband's company and wanted to be able to have a conversation with him. Completely impossible. We changed tables to try to mitigate the problem. We started out in a side room that reverberated like an echo chamber. We were reseated in the central room where we were sitting so close to the couple at the next table we had to resist the compulsion to introduce ourselves. We could hear their conversation better than our own because they spoke louder :-/
As for the food, our main courses were excellent. My husband had scallops and I had Mahi. The sides were very good too. Roasted broccoli, sweet potato, succotash were all very tasty. We had the creme brûlée for dessert and were surprised that the custard had a very salty flavor. Definitely didn't love that, but everything else was delicious. But honestly, not delicious enough to pay what we paid and not be able to hear one another for a solid hour. So Saltine will be a one and done for us.
A fabulous experience. Service from the moment we walked in through the entire experience was so welcoming and spectacular. All the servers involved with our meal very courteous and attentive. Three members of our party ordered the tuna tostadas and were very pleased. The other party members ordered the sea bass and the flounder. Fish very fresh. Sides yummy too. The experience was a mini vacation! We look forward to returning.
Waiter forgot about us and we were without drinks for our main meal :(
The service and food were amazing!! You have to try the "Orb" dessert - super fun and perfect for 4 people! Overall a fantastic dinner.
Great menu. Excellent food. Big portions. Staff robotic. Room nice.
Lovely brunch with many delicious shared plates. The service provided by Robert was excellent. Beautiful decor and easy parking. Visit the Nautilus center and the USS Wisconsin battleship afterwards for a fun day in the city.
Amazing food and service.
A nice Saturday excursion. The mobile bar was very interesting and the bartender was very attentive to customers. Drinks were pricey $13 for a small glassed Bloody Mary or Moito. Our food server left out crustinis with the mussels appetizer but remedied when we alerted him. Salmon entree was very little food. Food quality was excellent.
I had the Snapper, one of the best fish dishes I've ever had
First time there for lunch. We had been there for dinner previously. Food was very good. Service was very polite but remarkably slow. 10 minutes for wait staff to talk to us after sitting down and it sort of followed that pattern. They offered free deserts as an apology which was nice, but we would rather have faster service. The restaurant was about 1/2 full so, I am not sure what their issues were.
Located in the Hilton lobby area on Main St with public parking readily available, the restaurant offers good access and seafood. The only downside is that it is directly behind the bar area, which contributes to the higher noise level in the restaurant
Atmosphere, service, and food was amazing. Surprisingly a bit pricey, but it's nice to splurge once in a while.
Terrible table given for 55 th bday. Had to change. Waitress Ella was only thing that saved the night. She was great. Food was ok and succotash as a side in a fine dining restaurant? Also, servers dressed in gingham shirts...felt we were in a production of Oklahoma. Once again not befitting if a $$$$ fine ding restaurant. And food was just ok. Also served the smallest martini in history. All made for a very unpleasant experience before going to the opera.
Loved this place! Our server was amazing and our drinks were outstanding especially for the price! The happy hour at the bar is a must!
Food was great... I went in on a Sunday evening about an hour before my reservation and was seated immediatly. My server was either just awful or new, or both. I was starving and just wanted to eat and leave, I was alone, and she just went on and on about the drink menu and explaining evry nuance.. I finally just had to tell her I just wanted to order my meal, eat and leave. She was very attentive during my stay
Amazing from start to finish! I was blown away by the variety of drinks and our server Nicole’s knowledge of them as well as her eloquent guidance through the menu. It was our first time here so we weren’t familiar with everything Saltine had to offer. When the food arrived it was delicious and we were even given a treat from the kitchen! I would absolutely return. Great staff, great food, and a wonderful overall experience.
I really enjoyed this place. Sundays and Mondays are lobster Main-ia nights and its worth checking out. We were very pleased with all the lobster treats we got, appetizers and main. I will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service! Amanda was our waitress and she was exceptional. You have to get the Orb dessert! It is an experience!
