My husband is on a restricted diet and Chef Alex was unbelievably accommodating. He came out from the kitchen numerous times to make sure that what he prepared adhered to my husband’s diet, but was also tasty. He saw it as an interesting challenge and we could tell that he is passionate about his cooking. My husband was in heaven with his meal and with all his dietary restrictions, it was amazing that Chef Alex was able to make his food so tasty.
In addition, our waiter Scott was just wonderful...attentive and personable. The food was just wonderful and the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island really made our anniversary very special. Yes, it’s expensive, but worth every penny!

Anniversary Dinner. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about how the food was prepared. Spaced out our dinner so we were not rushed.

The food was prepared perfectly and very tastefully presented.

Just an overall great experience.

Great experience for our 43rd anniversary celebration. We were promptly seated at a window table and given immediate recognition of our special occasion. Jeff, Heidi and Shaeffer? were prompt, attentive and friendly and made the evening even more enjoyable. Scallops and salt block tenderloin were excellent and wine service was also prompt and well matched. Even a chocolate plate to finish with anniversary recognition on the plate. A very fine experience. Not cheap, but worth it. We will be back.

Our dinner was excellent. The variety of options, and execution of what we ordered was very good. The service was pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere was very nice and sophisticated. We had eaten there a few years ago when staying at the sight, and had a great time. We had looked forward to eating there again, and we were just as pleased the second time.

The restaurant was very cold, they told me they were working on it. I ordered the elk chop and the server suggested I order it medium rare to medium. I followed her suggestion and it came rare. I sent it back and it came back still rare, no one checked with me to see if it was satisfactory.

I had not been to Salt in a couple of years because I'd found the experience to be unpredictable and the prices consistently aggressive. This time the experience was well worth the price. We had the 4-course tasting menu and ate every morsel of every course. The presentations were beautiful, the service was both warm and professional and the food was amazing. I'd put the dining experience in my top 5 for the last few years. It was really terrific. I hope this level of dining is now their norm.

Wow ... from the moment we walked into Salt! As you walk in the view of the Atlantic greets you. Then the stellar service takes over from there and continues throughout the night. With great pride the team explain what salts go best with what part of the meal. And if you are as lucky as we were you will have Taylor filling the air with beautiful guitar music.

As usual Salt does not disappoint. We are locals and we love to take out of town guests here. The food is remarkable but the service is impeccable. Nothing compares. While it is pricey its really not any pricer then some higher end restaurants downtown and nothing can compete with the Ritz mentality. LOVE

Great service, good food prepared well and desserts are not an afterthought. We enjoyed date night pampered by the attentive wait staff and perfect timing of all ordered delivered to our table. Not inexpensive dining but valued the meal and the evening. The ambiance can't be beaten. Ocean outside and comfortable elegance inside. And not to be overlooked, finally, a dining char that is comfortable and elegant. Salt is wonderful.

All aspects of the "SALT" experience was wonderful. Every bite of every item was awesome and memorable. Menu items included butternut squash soup, Beet/Pear salad, Mashed Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, Filet Mignon, and the Bone-in Rib eye. (the demi glaze on both was excellent). The Salts given to accent the food are wonderful and add to the fun and taste of the experience. We were also given a commemorative dessert for our Anniversary which was so nice. This was our second visit which matched the great experience of the first; we love this place. There is a reason famous people come here when in town; truly special and well worth the cost. The service was also impeccable. Me and my wife highly recommend the SALT experience.

We are new resident locals and decided to try the only 5 Star Restaurant on Amelia Island. The food, service, ambiance and ocean view were all spectacular. The prices on the menu items were expensive which you would expect in a high end resort like Ritz Carleton but for a special occasion it did not seem too far out of line. The old platitude "that you get what you pay for" certainly is true for the Salt at the Ritz-Carleton. The only thing that will prevent us from returning again was the absurd markup for the Chardonnay wines on the menu. We always enjoy a good bottle of chardonnay for dinner and know the retail prices. Other restaurants double the retail price for expensive wines they sell but Salt increased the price at least 3 times and on several they raised the price 4 times. On a $50 bottle of wine it is unreasonable to make at $150 profit and it has to discourage locals from dining there on a regular basis which is too bad because it otherwise a wonderful experience.

We ordered the Chef's Adventure menu and it was spectacular. After letting our server know our food preferences and/or dislikes, our table of four were treated to the best meal we have ever had at Salt. And we've been there several times but always ordered straight from the menu. Each course was very generous for a 'tasting' and the accompanying wines were perfect. Truly a special evening.
