We had the rudest waitress and she couldn't care less about any of us.

Overall great experience. Service was excellent, atmosphere was very nice. Food was very good. A little pricey for the portion but worth it overall. Drinks were amazing but more expensive than average. I loved the overall experience and would definitely go back.

J’ai été une fois pour un déjeuné en amoureux c’était super
Les cocktails classiques sont revisité et sont super bons.

Worst service I had in a restaurant in Montreal. The waitress didn’t talk to us all night and I had to get our drinks at the bar by myself because the waitress was useless.

Really disappointed.

Great food! We ordered ceviche butterfish because I had never had butterfish before, patatas Bravas, croquetas, paella, and octopus but would have been nice to know from server when we ordered that the octopus was served with potatoes since we had ordered patatas bravas as well. Would have liked to start with ceviche but that was served at the end. The service was mediocre but the food was very good. The octopus was so tender!

All the food was very good!
Octopus highly recommended !
Salmon ceviche also awesome, unlike any I have had before...
Caesar salad with Halumi was delicious! (and I have had my share of “ok” Caesar salads...)
Gambas was ok - could have used more seasoning - a little more salt even!
Lovely to be seated on the terrace on a beautiful summer night.
A great evening out!

For a seafood restaurant, you’d expect more than minced lobster in the lobster roll. The atmosphere on the patio was lovely, but the servers were over-taxed.

I’ve been to this place several times .... but this time I was really disappointed. Went with my boyfriend and immediate family. Felt like this resto became a tourist trap because of its location.
Food was very average and the service was not omg special.
My lobster roll was stale and not very tasty.
Anyhow we are done with it, tons of amazing resto with incredible food! Unless we start hearing that their food has improved Ed we will pass on it!

It’s overrated. The food was ok. We waited so long for the waitress to notice us every time we needed something. I guess because she was a beginner.
If I ever go back it would be for a drink but not for the food that’s for sure.

I travel solo for work quite a bunch so I like a spot where I can sit at the bar and eat and not feel too out of place eating on my own. The bar here worked well enough for that. If I return I will sit on the left hand side instead since behind my seat on the right was an extremely busy corridor to the kitchen. The food was good - I had the seafood paella - and the atmosphere was lively and exactly what I was looking g for that night.

Just the terrace worth a visit at this place. It’s a summer place. Food is average, service is average except for the hostesses who make sure you get a nice table. So it depends what you are looking for. Good in general.

We were a party of 6 and never got our main courses. There was a private party and they seriously forgot to bring us any food. Why not close the restaurant on a Saturday night instead of leaving us hungry????

We reserved via OpenTable, where one of the options clearly was "Table" or "Bar" seating. I went with my older aunt, who has knee and back problems, so we clearly requested a table. Upon arrival, the very snotty blonde hostess told us that we'd be at the bar since"they didn't guarantee any table seating". I talked to her manager and she promptly found us a table. Sadly this table was right under a speaker with pretty loud music right above us (this was also 7 PM). I asked the hostess again if we could change seats or if they could lower the volume a tad, which was met with an icy "No...".

Our server, however, saved the night. He was fantastic and understanding. He managed to lower the volume a bit to normal restaurant levels, and was very friendly throughout dinner.

Now, food-wise, I am south american/spanish and I can say that it leaves a lot to be desired. The "Ceviches" are extremely expensive for otherwise 4-5 slices of sashimi (not really a ceviche at all). The paella was salty and soggy. Everything else was overpriced.

We went here during the Grand Prix weekend to enjoy some drinks and food on the patio. It was very busy, but our server was great and attentive. The patio was lovely, and had an energetic atmosphere. But the menu prices were jacked up for Grand Prix, which for a local was pretty annoying knowing that what we ordered was costing us $5 more per item than if we went on a regular weekend! We ordered the ceviche which was very flavourful and tasted great! But they had run out of tortilla chips, and we had to ask to get bread or something with our ceviche. And then it took about 20 minutes for our bread to come! So that was a bit disappointing that they didn’t think ahead and bring the bread with the ceviche. But Overall we enjoyed our meal at SeaSalt!

Food was very very good, however service was slow even though their wasnt a lot of people. Also, we asked the waitress to split our bill a certain way but it was way off & they did not have anymore oysters. Furthermore, the food was too expensive for the portions we got.

I made a reservation to eat here on Friday night and was surprised to be seated at the bar upon arrival. Had I known that a reservation for two here meant sitting at a crowded bar, I would’ve gone somewhere else. This place is highly overhyped (probably because of the neon sign on the wall honestly) and not worth the price tag. Go to Macro for an actual high end seafood experience.

We were charged for an entree we wanted but "they were out of"; we did not get it but paid for it. We did not notice this until after we had left. No response to my call or email. We had to leave the city the next day. Excellent quality food. $$$ prices. Good service (3waiters). Great wine list. We WOULD go again, BUT pay better attention to the bill!

If you are going on a special holiday, like Mother's day (as I did) CALL AHEAD. They had a set menu with only two dishes that had seafood. Online they made no indication of any mother's Day specials so I mistakenly promised my mom and grandmother seafood...

Service: Not a great experience overall. The upsetting thing with the service is is that they seemed to have a lot of waiters, a 3/4 full terrace (no one inside), and still we didn't get enough attention.

To break it down, the first issue is that we were served by what seems to be 3 different waiters. The first served us water and said they would be back for our drink order. A different person came back to take our drink and food order.  We ended up getting our food before our drinks.

We then we're never approached by another waiter the entire time. Never asked for second drinks, asking for dessert / coffees. 

Also, our table was unbalanced(not the issue)  so I asked a busboy to fix it and he said he would be right back. He then proceeded to talk to other waiters, clean other tables, and avoid coming back. We then had to get a waiter who sent a different busboy.

And finally had to ask a different waiter for the bill as no one came to check on us.

Food: The food was really good and the two seafood options (lobster and crab) with eggs were delicious. If the full menu was available I would be able to comment more.

Overall the issue was with the service and them not making customers aware of the set menu beforehand. I would have loved to try the seafood options and treat my family to what I promised.

Outstanding flavors and seafood options. Service is very attentive and friendly. Food is prepared slowly, so be patient, but the presentation is excellent. Atmosphere is noisy and "shabby chic", tres casual. Would definitely go again.

Ambiance and location are great, but the food misses a lot of flavour...salmon tartare was okay but nothing amazing and the chicken dish had no flavour at all! Also, they didn’t have anymore bottle of Rieisling white wine and the seafood dish, which was deceiving. would come back there to grab a drink but not for a meal.

L'entrée était excellente (ceviche et tartare de thon... quoi qu'on aurait pris du pain) et le plat principal (nous avons toutes les 3 pris les tagliatelles) correct. Les fruits de mer très bons mais le plat était froid. La place et l'ambiance très bien.

We made a reservation on open table and was told we had to sit at the bar. My date ordered a Cabernet and we were told the restaurant was out. On a Friday night. Really?

The food was very good. Out appetizers came out quick and were delicious but the entrées took an exceptionally long time.

It was a good dining experience but very loud with a DJ playing music.
