    The only thing that I encounter that as soon as we sat down with the menu, a waitress came over, wanted to take our order as I was still looking over the wine list. She brought me the another wine menu list and just walk away. Waited, thinking she would come back. In a short while a waiter, very friendly, came over and ask if a anyone came over to take our order. Waiter was apologizing and recommended certain dishes on the menu. He took care of us for the rest of our meal.

    Good and friendly service. Efficient and prompt. Food is always good and presented well. Tonight had dinner with several guests and it was good. The caesar salad was fresh and well seasoned. The calamari was pretty good, a few pieces overcooked. Our table shared 5 dishes. Ribeye was juicy and cooked to temp. Cioppino had good taste and the right consistency, would have liked some crab though. The sea bass was seasoned well, a little overcooked. The Chicken was tasty and well cooked. The bolognese pasta was really delicious, really liked that one. Overall always a good experience here at Saltyard.

    The service was terrible they sat my husband and I at the smallest table when other tables were available. They sat two women at a large table by themselves. We had to ask our orders be taken and out water was never refilled but the table next to ours was serviced properly.

    Service was good although felt a bit rushed through the courses (unable to finish salads before main courses were being crowded onto table). Food was good and adequate for the price but we ordered the crème brûlée for dessert and was wildly disappointed. It was exceedingly cold and rather than smooth and creamy it seemed almost curdled and crumbly. Almost sent it back but resolved to just never order it again at this restaurant.

    When we got to the restaurant, there were quite a few people eating inside, and the only tables we could see (for 2) were in the middle of the floor, so we opted to eat outside under the awning. The noise level was low, even for being outside, but we were in the line of foot traffic on the street and our table was next to the street. The interior of the restaurant had a nice ambience. We started with an appetizer of crab cakes, which was pricey for only 2 crab cakes ($18), and they tasted a little "fishy." For our main entrees, my husband got the ribeye and I got the teriyaki skirt steak. Both meals were very tasty. (We asked them to put the veggies on the side.) We decided since it was Christmas, we would indulge in dessert, so he got the warm chocolate cake and I got the sticky toffee pudding. Both desserts were very decadent. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant.

    It was the people in our group of 5 that made the dining experience worthwhile. Other than that the experience and food was below average. The service was rushed and when we got our food, our waiter didn’t check in and we had to flag him down even for water refills. The food was fine - nothing wrong with the food but also nothing exceptional or memorable about it. Also the wines by the glass were limited. I would still go back if invited for a dinner here, but I don’t rank it high on my list of “must eat here again” restaurants.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Lamb Tacos and the delicately fried Calamari appetizers, exquisite sauces on entrees, signature cocktails done well, desserts are deliciously unique in taste (I suspect they are homemade at the restaurant). Super service. Loved the experience so much I instantly made another reservation to dine at Saltyard again in 3 weeks!

    The service was minimum while my ribeye was medium done while I specifically requested medium rare as was for my husband and it was way over salted!! Other than we had a great time spending with our college kids being home, the meal itself was very disappointing.

    What happened? it used to be a great spot. The food was terrible: steak satays were chewy, minimalist and poorly accompanied. They had no sauce or anything to help you swallow the dry leather pieces, which were marinated so much, you never tasted the meat. the lamb tacos? not even close. brussels sprouts, thank Goodness, still great. They seemed bored servicing the tables. Not sure what happened but i likely won't go again.

    The food was outstanding, very delicious. We had the signature meals. The skirt steak and the Ribeye. The Old Fashion was very yummy. I was there once before for there wine and knew this place was good. The ambiance is beautiful but the noise level is high maybe they can have the music a bit louder to drown out people talking. Also our waiter was very nice but they are so busy they don’t have time to come back to ask if you want another drink. If they do it will be a minute before they come back if you forgot something. All in all we gave it a 5 star because the food was so delicious. The mushrooms bruschetta’s and the beet salad the best all for a reasonable price. Must try

    Great for a casual to fancy night out. Menu is classic CA, a bit on hardy side, but with enough froufrou items to pease the foodies. Comfy seats, good drinks, personable waitstaff. We had a Rez and we were seated immediately. They were fully booked by 7pm, so very lively.
