Salt at The Ritz-Carlton
I have always enjoyed Salt and the level of service they provide but unfortunately the experience was way below the norm this weekend. I hope this was a blip and not the new normal
As usual the Ritz-Carlton dining never fails to be the best. Over the top personal service, perfectly timed courses, perfect presentation and quality. At 60, among the best dining experience we have ever had. That’s saying something. Snapper/octopus and Seabass perfection. Don’t miss this rare chance for world class dining.
From the valet service at the beginning to the soufflés at the end. We enjoyed excellent service and the food was incredible. Thanks to Dave our server!
Outstanding service, food and ambiance. Very expensive but worth it for special occasions and romantic dinner.
the staff, food, and service compares to anywhere I have eaten throughout the world. second to none!
Highly recommended for any occasion with a five star overall experience. Thank you for being on Amelia Island just down from our new residence.
The food was amazing .... the ambiance was incredible.... if your group is planning on ordering starters and main courses each I suggest you share a dessert. My group was so full we couldn’t eat our dessert.... that was definitely a waste of money. Please note the bill at the end of the dinner will be pricey. The bill is not itemized so if you are concerned about the cost and whether gratuity is included I suggest you ask for an itemized bill. Overall this was an fantastic experience.
We had the chefs tasting (a 4 course meal) where every dish is a surprise. The appetizer, seafood course, and dessert were all great. My wife doesn’t like seafood, so they gave her chicken. My only complaint is with the meat course. They served us pork tenderloin. Last time we were there, my wife was given steak and eggs served on a Himalayan salt block, and I think I had another seafood course. I don’t like pork unless it’s a rib, or pulled. As far as value goes, at $120 per person, I would expect some along the lines of a petite filet or a lamb chop. To spend that kind of money for my wife to get chicken and pork was a little disappointing. A higher quality of meat is in order. Other than that, the service was great, and it has a wonderful atmosphere.
We had dinner here for my birthday. My wife an I both agree that this meal is in the top 5 meals we have ever had!!! Kudos to the Chef for an excellent job. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was fabulous, and the wine pairings were perfect!!! In discussing our meal later, there is not one single thing that I would change, and not one single little detail that was overlooked, and not one single aspect that would be rated less than a "Perfect 10." Thank you for a perfect meal, a job well done, and an exquisit dining experience that will gladly be repeated many more times.
Not only the best dining experience on the island but also one of the best you'll have anywhere. Great attention to detail and very creative dishes.
Salt was a unique dining experience! Great food and service !
We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Many details went into our dinning experience. It was very special. We did the adventure tasting menu. Pleasantly surprised and it was a great transition of flavors. Will certainly come back. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Had a wonderful dinner at Salt! Hopefully next time I go there won’t be a screaming infant at the next table.
What a fantastic dining experience! We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The ‘chef’s adventure’ menu was truly a meal to remember. Fantastic food preparation, attention to detail & service. Jeff was a fantastic server and even arranged for us to visit the kitchen after dinner. Our family celebration was truly memorable. Highly recommend Salt!!
Epic dinner. We loved the wonderful food and service. Wow.
Absolute gem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful menu, service, wine list, etc. They really do pay attention to detail.
First, gentlemen need to wear long pants. So although our party was dressed in typical resort wear, (nicely dressed) we were forced to eat in lounge area. They have live music Friday and Saturday, very good but much too loud for a “5 diamond” dining experience. Also, very cold in room. Food is very good, also very expensive . Our waitress was wonderful, especially when we could hear her.
Took my boyfriend for his birthday and was very happy with our evening! The staff makes you feel very well taken care of and important, food was phenomenal. Will definitely be going back! Restaurant was beautiful with am amazing view, great live music, and awesome wine options.
Great food and a good quiet atmosphere. It was my wife’s birthday and they went the extra mile.
We had the Chefs Adventure Menu. Highly recommend it. ALL 4 courses were absolutely fantastic. It was worth the money. My wife and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary. We will go back.
Best Dinner We have ever had!! Excellent Service and ambience. We will be back again!
We had an incredible meal for a birthday celebration. Our waitress could not have been any better, wish I could remember her name. We were late in getting seated and we received a free round of champagne which was lovely. We all raved about our food and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Salt restaurant. From the moment we entered the door we were greeted by a friendly staff and were seated at a window table with a beautiful view. The vegetarian menu had some delicious choices and the wait staff were very attentive. It was a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting.
This restaurant goes down as one the of best in my book. I have been to many of the best restaurants in New York and many other cities around the world. This restaurant is among the best. I give this 5 stars!
One of best dinners we have ever had. Great experience. Staff is awesome. Atmosphere is out of sight. Don't miss if in the area. Need to reserve a few days in advance.
Outstanding in every way - food, service, ambience, view. Our most favorite restaurant!
We had a lovely meal, very special. Beautiful evening, our table had a beach view, great drinks, delicious food, everything was so yummy, the Prawn appetizer is a must. Always a special experience! Order a soufflé for desert, such a treat!
Being in the food business for 30 years it pains me to leave a poor review, and this is actually a first for me. However, after much consideration I feel I must. It seems that from the moment we checked in at Salt and advised we were not staying at the Ritz Carlton we were doomed service wise. We were assigned 2 servers. Both were non existent for most of the evening. The huge fly that continually circled the table deserved the servers tip. We received more attention from the fly than we did from anyone working in the Salt dining room. The servers did not in anyway earn the tip that was left. It took forever from the time of ordering something to actually receiving it. For example it took 27 minutes to get a second glass of wine. I normally do not pay attention to these things but it was becoming the theme of the evening and I had just happened to check the time when ordering. I eat out a lot, entertain clients and have eaten at some of the best rest restaurants, in this case it is disappointing to write this restaurant does not fall into that catergory. My husband’s elk chop came out undercooked and cold, pasta was cold, we had to flag down another server not assigned to us to complain. Our server never checked in after the food was served to see if everything was ok. We did not see Robert again until it was time to order desert. His secondary Derek never checked in until after the bill was put down. Multiple times we had to lean on Stacey to help us out with an issue. He was assigned to other tables but the only persons attention we were able to get. Every table around us had attentive service unfortunately for us it seems that somehow we drew the short straw. I have never once posted a bad review for any restaurant I have eaten in but 2 days later I am still bothered by the evening. I am also not afraid of absorbent menu charges but the meal must warrant it. This meal did not. In establishment such as Salt service and food should be exemplary.
Another great meal at Salt. The food is wonderful and the staff is incredible; couple that with great views of the coast! Great
Everyone in my party was disappointed. My husband thought the sauce on his ribeye ruined it and he stated that it was not a very good piece of meat. The halibut was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. For the price, the food should have been much more memorable. I wouldn't go back.
The service was outstanding at salt. Their tasting menu was creative and very good!! Look forward to going back again!
As always outstanding in service. food quality and all the little things that make for a great experience!
Wonderful dining experience from the food to the service to the ambiance. Best meal we've had in years!
We were on vacation with our daughter and her husband and loved the restaurant! Our waiter was outstanding and the atmosphere was very nice. The food was excellent , we all loved our dishes and the dessert, we had their tripe souffle and believe me it was out of this world, a must to have !!!
Loved this restaurant not a negative thing to say!!

This is one of those restaurants that is exceptional. The food is innovative and done to perfection. The choices are all outstanding . The choice are so good you want to eat ithem all. We left the place full and fully satisfied that it was one of the best meals we had.
My favorite restaurant. Never disappoints.
Wish I lived closer
Olga was an awesome server. She was very informative about the food, as well as general conversation. We enjoyed talking to her. Our food was very good. We also had a wonderful bottle of wine. The lime souffle was amazing! Overall, a very good experience. A little pricey, but that's what you expect.
Always an incredible experience.
The front and back of the house are stellar. In our opinion, Salt is one of the best restaurants in the country. We have eaten here numerous times, always ordering the chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings, and we have never been disappointed. The attention to detail for each course is phenomenal. The service is impeccable and we always feel like we amongst friends. Chef Alex and his team provide an unforgettable dining experience rather than just a meal. We can’t wait to come back!
