Everything was excellent - food, staff, wine pairings and loved the acoustic guitar until the outdoor flood lights turned on. The staff was very attentive to the issue, but there is only so much you can do with sheer drapes.

Food and service were both excellent. A small mishap (dropped tray and glass) by one of the servers but accidents happen. What wasn’t up to par was the ambiance. There was a large table of intoxicated adults and their small kids a couple of tables away. I only wished the adults were as well behaved as the kids. The staff could have done more to address the issue by asking them to leave or at least stop serving them.

Food is excellent along with the service. Only issue was it was freezing in the restaurant. Uncomfortably cold. But we would still go back. The services is 5plus stars and food is 5 star. Very pricey but was very good

We stayed at the Amelia Ritz about 5 years ago and had a wonderful meal at Salt. We are back again this year and decided to go back. It is still a special dining experience. We did not do the tasting menu but each ordered a meal. All meals were delicious: seafood pasta, tenderloin, chicken and “steak and eggs” on the salt block. Service is outstanding, great wine list and lovely presentation. There was live music - a great guy on guitar (no singing just music) but it did make it a bit louder that normal. But we liked that. I suppose you could ask to sit farther away if you wanted a quieter dinner. Overall a special dinner and thoroughly enjoyed.

We chose the tastings hand crafted by the chef. You may think tastings means small plates, but that was not the case. We wrapped most of the meat course for lunch the next day. It was all fabulous! We felt it was the best meal we’ve ever had.

Main courses were excellent (elk and snapper) the beef tartar as well. Perfect dishes my wife was blown away by her fish. Brussels sprouts were possibly the best side dish I’ve ever had and would go back for them alone as a main course. The desert however (soufflé trio) tasted like pancakes and was a complete let down. Not one of them met expectations or came close. Bland and flavorless pretty sure chili’s lava cake has more going for it ouch. Atmosphere and service is what you would expect at the Ritz and we received nothing less.

Absolutely fantastic meal and service! If you’re staying at the Ritz or in the area, don’t miss Salt. We were there celebrating our son‘s 16th birthday and my husband and son both had the Filet and they both agreed that it was one of the best steaks they’ve ever had, better than Abe and Louie’s in Boston :-)
I had the halibut and it was delicious. Can’t say enough about our wonderful meal!

Our experience was amazing. We had the beef tenderloin and the lobster and the quality was excellent. They season with a little less salt so you you can add one of the 3 special salts they have on your table. Each of the salts are a different flavor and texture experience.

The service was outstanding as they anticipated our every need.

We highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning soon.

Everything here was exemplary from the minute we walked in. Phillip the manager took special care to accommodate our every need. Phillip came to our table and personally made my friend a cappuccino when she said her coffee was a bit strong. He was very humorous yet professional at the same time. A quality I personally love! We both had
The filet and lobster which was succulent. Our waiter was very attentive. He put 3 varieties of salt on our table and went into detail about the flavor and which one works best with everything on our plate. We each received our own favorite salt as a gift. I have dined at The Ritz in Paris which was a bit supercilious. This dining experience was certainly more pleasant and Phillip was delightful!

Our 55th wedding anniversary and we were expecting a very nice dinner and ended up having one of the finest dinners in our life! Creative dishes, all very tasty and perfectly presented. In addition the service was top notch- attentive, there when you needed them and not there when not needed. A literally perfect meal and experience. Will revisit at every opportunity.

Phenomenal dining experience with flair from chef Rick Laughlin and outstanding service from Phil Huber's professional waitstaff. Every dish was exquisite. Dinner rolls, served with 5 flavors of salt, were scrumptious. Likewise, appetizers and entrees were superb so we had little room left for dessert. The wine and cocktail list is extensive, and the ocean view calming. Plentiful Gluten-free options as well.

It was my mom’s birthday and they made it very special. We had a beautiful table with a gorgeous view of the water, the menu included a Happy Birthday message and they presented us with a wonderful plate of treats and a little bag to take them with us upon our departure.

Our waiter was particularly wonderful and all of the staff were so welcoming and attentive. It was just a lovely evening. The food was fabulous too.

Afterward, we enjoyed an Irish Coffee around the fire pit.

Highly recommend Salt - it is a wonderful dining experience!
