Salt at The Ritz-Carlton
Great service!! But... I thought I was going to be blown away with the food (for the price) but didn’t. Stake for $57 plus side for $17. Stake was about 8oz and not the best cut... somewhat of a bummer
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.
Never disappointed. Outstanding presentation, excellent service and a meal worth every penny. Beyond memorable. Phillip and his staff are the very best.
Always amazing..Chef Rick, Niko, Garrett and of course, Shelton do an amazing job. The food was fabulous. Beautiful evening....nice way to kick off restaurant week.
Exceptional food and atmosphere. The service was attentive at the beginning but tailed off near the end. They were not busy.
Great food and service. A little pricy but we knew that going in.
Lovely! Exceptional food in taste and presentation and exceptional service.
One of three 5-diamond restaurants in Florida, understandably, as our meal was elegant, superbly served, delightfully delicious, and most attentive knowledgeable, and gracious servers!!
New Years Eve pre Fix menu was Amazing Robert the server was attentive knowledgeable curious Our first time at SALT but won’t be the last compliments to the Chef and the entire staff
They were very busy NYE. Food was excellent!
Lovely evening but the cost of the price fix menu was not disclosed, and there were no kids menus. We had complete sticker shock when we got the bill - the costs as atleast 30% higher than the last time we ate there. We will not be going back for NYE dinner - it was not worth the cost.
New Year Eve dinner
Congratulations to Mr. Philip, a very congenial gentleman, and his staff for making my “special” birthday celebration, very memorable. Thank you.
45th Wedding Anniversary. Our waiter Scott did a great job at making our evening memorable. Everyone at Salt was friendly & professional. It was a special nite & the food & service were excellent.
My husband and I enjoyed the 4 course meal with wine pairings. It was truly amazing. Our server Patty was great at anticipating our needs. Each wine was better than the other. Ambiance is lovely we had a table next to window overlooking the ocean. Venison was fabulous!
If money is no object try the food and wine pairing.
From start to finish, from valet to host to servers, diners won't be disappointed. Service was phenomenal, food was fantastic and we couldn't have had a better evening. Yes, it's expensive but you get what you pay for. We are so glad we finally dined here. Ryan was a great server - he and his team were the best of the best. We are looking forward to a future meal.
Great service with Phil the Maitre d' and Olga the server. Celebrated our engagement in real style with terrific, tasty, interesting food that we shared: Jones Farm Lettuce salad with Asian pears and roasted beets; parsnip soup with poached apple and confit duck; grilled venison with Brussel sprouts and huckleberry jam; and honey rosemary cake with ginger meringue and cranberry sorbet. Our usual martini before dinner and two delicious wines with dinner made for a lovely evening. Our only disappointment - and the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars for the food - was that we were limited to the price fix meal which precluded us from having our traditional Christmas standing rib.

Everything from service to food was phenomenal!
We all had wonderful meals. Capt. Matt was our waiter, and he was exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable, and service oriented. You should request him as your waiter if possible.
Excellent service. Quality and care goes into each dish. Five star dining at its best!
Amazing food, amazing service! Cooking my aged steak on a 250 million salt brick, pretty cool! Wifes staek and lobster melted win her mouth, literally that good!
Salt was the perfect choice to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. They went above and beyond to make this night even more special.
Everything was excellent and Celia was a gracious server. We had a wonderful evening.
Very Best Regards,
It was our first time and we were definitely impressed. Personal time with waiter, thorough explanation of menu, exquisite food items, all needs met plus more.
Chief’s table was fantastic. Can not wait to do it again!
Amazing meal - did the chefs choice with wine pairings. Really great food and service. Can’t wait to come back
A true 5 star experience
We really enjoyed the chef’s tasting menu with the premium wine pairing. The live music was wonderful and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. My glass was never empty. Our server Matthew was outstanding.
Our waiter, Ryan, has taken care of us for the past 2 years. Although we only have dinner at Salt a few times a year, he not only remembers my husband and me, but also our two teenage children. We couldn’t ask for a more personable, respectful, and genuine person to serve us. Thank you Ryan!
Best food and dining experience we have ever had.
Salt never disappoints. The dinner was excellent. It was our anniversary dinner and the ambience ,service ,food the wine pairing were all top-notch.We will for sure come back for special occasions to this wonderful place.
Everything about this restaurant was amazing. From the moment we walked in the door it was wonderful. We were greeted graciously and warmly. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and delivered hot. It was my birthday and everyone went out of their way to make it very special. It was a beautiful dining experience. I couldn't have been happier.
My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Salt. We ordered steak and a seafood pasta and both were fantastic! The services was wonderful and the whole experience was truly exceptional.
The food was tasted amazing and a great presentation. The service was top notch
Great service & food as usual. Not overbearing yet attentive. Menu with slight variations, not many changes over the years.
Awesome place to celebrate a special occasion. The personal touch speaks volumes.
Salt is a must when on Amelia if you want an amazing meal and service. Ritz setting doesn’t hurt either.
We were celebrating our 15yr anniversary and everything was wonderful. The food, the service and even the ambiance was all great. We will definitely come back again.
The Salt tasting menu and service never disappoint. Best in the region.
Did not disappoint. The flavors were authentic and delicious!
