Timber & Salt is our go to place for an amazing dinner in Redwood City. We've tried most of the menu and everything is fantastic (the burger is strongly recommended!). Cocktails are clever, seasonal, and delicious. Enjoy!

Chef continues to surprise and delight with new specials and old favorites. Mixology always on point with true craft and Tiki Thursday’s are particularly fun for adventuring.

Had a great meal there, staff was friendly and attentive; food was solid American standard executed well. Nice to have a full bar with all options. Only downside was very chilly initial seating location, but that’s down to Covid, not the establishment. Would gladly go back for the fried chicken and a bourbon to start!

Nice patio set-up for outdoor dining with heaters and dividers between some tables. The menu is great, with lots of good options for vegetarians and pescatarians. We had 6 different dishes. Although they were all good, 5 of them were cooked with way too much oil! Service and ambiance were good. If the oil issue gets fixed, I would definitely return.

The burger is one of the best items on the menu. We also had the pork belly confit which was well balanced and delicious. It was a little chilly but that’s what you expect this time of year when dining outside.

Timber and Salt continues to provide an excellent dining experience, despite all the challenges faced by a restaurant under pandemic health and safety guidelines. Their outdoor patio space is comfortable and attractive. Our group of four had a great time and it seemed for the time in a while that we weren't in the grips of a global health crisis; in other words, it was fun night out!

The cocktails are masterfully crafted and executed. The small but innovative food menu offers very tasty and interesting dishes.

Keep up the good work!

Fantastic restaurant. Nice heaters for outdoor evening dining. Prompt service. Menu was perfectly sized, not overly burdened with excess options, and enough diversity for those who have diet restrictions and / or strict food preferences.

Super friendly place. The butternut squash soup is outstanding and Brussel sprouts to die for. Also enjoy the steak and burger. Limited menu and we eat gluten free so few choices. Wish there were more options so we could eat there more often. They are always very accommodating.

Food quality and cocktail program is best in downtown Redwood City.

Arancini and pork belly appetizers were unique and flavorful. Scallop entree was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Steak bavette entree was also well executed.

Great set up outdoors during COVID-19. It didn't feel crowded and the set up is beyond regulations to keep us safe. The service was on point and Brian always outdoes himself with the rotating cocktail menu.

We had an 8:15pm reservation. Unfortunately, those seated before us were not leaving. Due to severe COVID restrictions,we waited at a table off to the side with no heater. However, the staff at Timber & Salt did everything they could to accommodate us including comping us for our appetizer’s. Nothing opened up so they set us up inside creating a spot for us of the cold. After dinner they brought us delicious chocolate cake desert that was excellent. BTW, food was great and the service was even better. This is a staff that cares about all their customers!

Timber & Salt has done a great job of creating a nice outdoor dining experience and tables are separated by panels for safety. In addition, the food was tasty. Definitely order the cauliflower!

One of our favorite date night options--patio, with an Aged Rum Old Fashioned, Buffalo Cauliflower appetizer, split the gourmet cheeseburger/fries, and add an order of brussel sprouts. We used to try new things here, and they were good, but this is our favorite combination. For 2 years now we get the same thing every.single.time, and it is consistently delicious every.single.time.
