    Every year for my birthday we stay at the Ritz and go to Salt. We are from Jacksonville. We also meet up with some friends and have gone to Salt. The service is always amazing as is the ambiance. This time the food was just okay. I had fish and it was dry, a tail piece and really nothing great.

    Service was impeccable. For the most part, food was great. I ordered the Wagyu steak and was not impressed. The beef was cooked properly, but from a flavor perspective, it was lacking a lot. I expected a little more presentation for a $98 entre.

    Since 2017, we have had the extreme pleasure of dining on several occasions at the Ritz Carlton’s Salt Restaurant. Of course their food plating and presentation are incredible and the appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts definitely exceed the gold standard for quality and taste but it’s more than the wine list or the menu or the ambience — it’s about the people. The service provided by their team is unlike any we have ever had. From the manager to the servers to the assistants to the kitchen staff, we can’t speak more highly of their professionalism, efficiency, courtesy and just overall graciousness and kindness. They go above and beyond to make one feel welcomed and part of their Salt “family.” Their guitarist Taylor is an incredibly talented musician whose versatile playlist exceeds all expectations; he has the incredulous ability to appeal to all musical interests —whether it’s classical, rock and roll, classic rock, alternative rock, or easy listening. For those who have not had the pleasure of dining at Salt, we hope you will take the opportunity to spend what we think you would find to be a most delightful dining evening there. In all the years we have dined at Salt, we have never been disappointed. If one existed, their rating should have 10 stars!

    Salt at the Ritz-Carlton was very enjoyable as we dined their for our 41st Wedding Anniversary. The host sat us in a private side room with a view of the fire pit outside. A very special touch was seeing "Happy 41st Anniversary" printed onto of the menu when we opened it. Another unique feature was the presentation of the bread basket with a variety of small rolls, unsalted butter, and then a sampling of a salts to flavor your butter & roll. This kept with the theme of the restaurant's name. The Halibut entree and Wagyu Beef entree were both excellent and cooked to perfection. For dessert we were surprised with a lovely sampling of desserts: truffles, jelly candies, and macaroons to wish us Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. Overall Salt is a place for that special occasion where you want to relax, be pampered with great customer service, and indulge yourself with wonderful cuisine.

    Server had very thick accent and could barely understand her. She wasn’t very attentive either. Food was delicious although the portions were tiny. $98 for an 8oz steak slivers and a tiny cup of fried rice?!?! Soufflé dessert was overly sweet and nothing special. Overpriced for the value

    We were really excited to enjoy our anniversary here. We love to find really good, fine dining restaurants near where we live. The menu is very unique but not for everyone and it’s a smaller menu so you might have to pick something you may not really want or even enjoy. And you may have to google what a lot of the items are. We aren’t able to drink alcoholic drinks and have a food allergy and the server seemed to comment on it multiple times in almost way that she was annoyed that we weren’t able to order those items (alcoholic drinks and desserts-but we did order mock-tails.) She also wasn’t that personable and we felt like she was annoyed by us because we didn’t drink alcoholic beverages but all of the other people who brought us food or cleared our table were extremely nice. Not sure if it’s a restaurant that we will to return to.

    We chose the Chef’s Menu especially being that we are familiar with Chef Okan’s culinary wizardry. Nevertheless, he outperformed himself once again. Don’t worry that it is too much as the portions are just the right size. How he can make five dishes plus desert that are all world-class is beyond me. All I can say is that Salt is one of the best restaurants in the country and it just keeps getting better. Prepare to be thrilled.

    we were celebrating my birthday and they had put Happy Birthday Paula on our menus. The appetizers we out of this world, service great. The only thing is I did feel somewhat rushed in between courses even though the restaurant was half full at the time we were there. But overall, fabulous food and setting.

    After we had a less than stellar Thanksgiving dinner at Salt several years ago, we were somewhat hesitant to dine there again, particularly given the expense, BUT this evening was a totally different experience. Rather than give too much detail, suffice it to say that literally from the moment we arrived until the moment we left several hour later, everything was perfect...ambiance, view, service, and stunning meal. So well done, that we have already reserved rooms at the Ritz for this Thanksgiving ...anticipating a beautiful experience.
