extremely good meal! the options are a bit limited but all are very good
I had the bison which was very tender and tasty. we each had an entre with no dessert and the bill was under 100 per head including a glass of wine. the wine list is very nice but very expensive

The food was amazing and the staff was great. I went with my wife for our 25ht wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the food. The food is familiar with a twist, for example the grilled Romain salad was a rif on a Cesar Salad with plenty of parmesan and sauce but a unique twist. We both wish the bread waiter came around more often and earlier so we could have better enjoyed the different salts on the table. But everything else was perfect.

We had a most enjoyable Anniversary dinner.
Everything was exceptional except for having to sit next to a boisterous couple who shouted into their cell phones while exchanging pictures with each other during our entire meal.
Cell phones should be banned from such an exquitite setting as the Salt!!!

Steak and lobster done to perfection. Loved the sides as well. Wife’s chicken was too “dry” for her taste. Desserts were exquisite.

This restaurant is unlike any other we've been to. The food is to die for, particularly the filet mignon and the pasta with seafood. Our servers, Craig and Heidi, were approachable, friendly and super attentive. The manager Phillip, at the host stand, was pleasant and friendly and extra accommodating! This restaurant boasts a tremendous wine list and mouthwatering desserts. We've gone two nights in a row and have a reservation to go back for our final night at the Ritz Carlton! Added bonus: variety of salts to try with your bread and butter at the start of the meal! Five stars in every category!

Would have rated service a 5 but a vegetable side dish we ordered with our meal was forgotten. Surprised me that a restaurant of this caliber did this. We told our waiter to forget it. He was very attentive and apologized. Food was excellent and bday plate very nice with homemade candy treats.

I dined at Salt to celebrate my birthday. Everything was very good I couldn’t fault it at all. All the dishes were delicious and well presented. The service provided by David was the best ever he was very attentive. We loved the bread and choice of salt provided. We eat regularly in Michelin starred restaurants all around the world and the quality of the food here was as good as any in fact we preferred Salt as it didn’t feel pompous at all which was lovely, and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend Salt and would love to return here if visiting the area again.

We visit Amelia Island about once a year, and eat at Salt at least once (sometimes if we are lucky twice) during our stay. The meals are always great, and whether it’s 2 of us or us with kids or a big crowd, the service outstanding. This year, our dinner at Salt was hands down one of the most wonderful meals and dining experiences we have ever had anywhere ever. We had the 4 course tasting menu with the wine parings. Every single dish was beautiful to look and was a culinary delight- innovative and delicious. The wine pairings were perfect- both with the dish and alone. And somehow, the always impeccable service was even better than ever- every single person was happy and attentive and knowledgeable and on.

I could go on and on, but in all honesty, I do not have enough words in my vocabulary to do justice to Salt and our dining experience.

This is the second time I've been to Salt. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my sister's birthday. The food and service were amazing. The Chef's Choice is definitely a must for foodies but kind of pricey. The restaurant was practically empty when we first arrived but shortly became a bustling gathering space. It was kind of noisey and very cold; I could have hanged meat next to my chair.

My wife and I had a special evening at Salt. While the food was excellent, it was the service that made that night...and our whole trip...truly memorable. First a note quick note on the food: we are vegetarians and loved the options that were available to us. Everything was presented well and tasted great. The bread service and assortment of salts were nice touches as well. Now the service: Scott was our server, and I will never forget him. The Ritz Carlton uses a system called the Gold Standards as the foundation of how they operate and take care of guests. I know about it because I have used it to train my own employees. Part of the Gold Standards is their Three Steps of Service. They are 1) A warm and sincere greeting, 2) Anticipation and fulfillment of each guest's needs, and 3) Fond farewell. Scott was great throughout the meal service, and we would have wrapped up our evening very happy with just that. But he found an opportunity to do much more when he learned that I love to surf. I told him that I was dying to surf while we were at Amelia Island, but the conditions were looking too flat. Scott, being an avid surfer, told me that there was a window early the next morning when there should be some waves and let me know about a local's spot where I would have the best shot at catching them. This got me excited, but then I remembered that I didn't bring a surfboard with me. I asked Scott where I could rent a board, and he said that the surf shops in the area didn't open until later in the morning and only rented out beginner soft top boards. Then Scott did something that blew me away: he offered to lend me one of his own surfboards. So Scott met me early the next morning (and by early I mean 6am) and I had an unforgettable time surfing as the sun rose. It was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had, and it was all because Scott took the time to "Anticipate and fulfill each guest's needs". (Note: We were not hotel guests - only dinner guests).

My wife and I ate here on a weeknight and it was one of the nicest restaurant experiences we have had in a long time. Our waiter was professional and amusing without being intrusive, and the food was absolutely outstanding — not just good, but truly inventive and interesting. We concentrated on their seafood offerings and also had a splendid chocolate almond soufflé for dessert that was the perfect way to end this splendid meal. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area.
