    The food and service at this restaurant are always outstanding. We certainly believe it is the best in Amelia Island and most of north Florida. We have had Stacey take care of us the last 3 times we have been there. He is exceptional. We live in North Carolina and always enjoy our time at the Ritz Amelia Island.

    Food was quite good, decor suitably elegant, service impeccable. Prices are astronomic. We were seated near a large party, and the live music (guitar instrumental) was way over-amplified. It was so loud that we literally could not hear the server explain the menu. Not what we should expect at those prices. We wouldn't go again unless we could be guaranteed a quiet table.

    Salt is a level above so many high end restaurants. They serve the chef “amuse bouche” and gourmet sweets after dinner. In the middle you get to experiment with in house infused salts on your breads and entree. The filet is top quality and perfectly done. The food is beautifully presented. The baklava is deconstructed and so flavorful. The staff calls you by name and is very attentive, but not intrusive. A perfect dinner and evening watching the full moon on the ocean!

    Shawna was our main waitress and was attentive, friendly, professional. We were lucky to have her again as our waitress! Service staff exceptional, who assisted her. We had the snapper and octopus appetizer, simply delicious! Love to feel pampered at Salt. Special birthday for hubby. Always a treat to eat at Salt!

    We recently dined at SALT restaurant and had an exceptional experience. The wonderful manager, Phil, impressed us with his attention to detail, especially with the champagne selection. Our server, Olga, provided outstanding service throughout the meal, ensuring our dining experience was nothing short of perfect. The wagyu and octopus dishes were deliciously tender, while the snapper was cooked to perfection. The entire team exhibited professionalism and made our evening memorable. SALT restaurant truly excels in both cuisine and service.

    This was the most amazing experience dining I have ever had! My mom and I went for a very ‘big’ birthday for me. We were whisked away with the luxury the moment we walked in starting with a private champagne saber from the Salt GM Phil Huber in the courtyard with ocean views. It was such a special time commemorating this birthday! Phil exhudes elegance with such charm and pleasure. Then we were seated at an ocean front view table with gorgeous views and personalized menus. Our waiter David was amazing and so knowledgeable and personable, it just added to the level of luxury one would dream of. The food was divine and everything was to perfection. Salt is hands down the best fine dining I’ve experienced, and yes fine dining should be an experience-not just somewhere to eat. If I could give more stars I would. Thank you Salt for an unforgettable evening, I will never forget and I know my mom will never either. First class all the way.

    Dear TimothyS, Although we are delighted to discover that you found the service and ambience to be optimal during your visit to Salt (5/5), we are terribly regretful that we did not meet your expectations for overall satisfaction (3/5), food (3/5) and value (3/5). We aim for perfection during each occasion in Salt; we are truly sorry to have missed the mark. Was our service team made aware of your dissatisfaction and may we ask the name on the reservation in order to research further recovery?
