    Our dining experience was exceptional! The moment we arrived we were greeted and welcomed. Everyone made us feel so special as were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our server, Shanna and the entire staff were friendly,professional and knowledgeable offering impeccable service that made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Our view was awesome too! The guitarist added the perfect touch and contributed to the ambiance. Our compliments to the chef as well our food was outstanding, so delicious and the presentation was superb! Loved the noted anniversary wishes on the menu and the dessert plate. We will be returning to celebrate many future occasions!

    Tonight was the night of my engagement celebration and it couldn’t have been more special by the friendly yet familial energy I received from the staff. Madison, Eva, Nicholas, Kyle, Jeff and Jack have made my celebration even more memorable. The service and ambience was up to the expectations you should receive for a Five Diamond restaurant, I want to thank Salt and the team for ensuring that our night was perfect. The food was amazing thanks to our wonderful chefs, and I couldn’t have done it without Matt helping ensure we got the best table. I’m forever grateful as I would recommend every celebration and more at this restaurant to be treated with not only value but over the top warm welcoming! If you want a more memorable evening, Eva is who you should recommend for a great night for celebrations! Please come to Salt, where our celebrations become theirs!

    Wonderful restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Service, food and ambiance were all first rate and they acknowledged our special day with a customized menu and after dinner candies. If you can afford it, definitely go. But it is expensive.

    I brought my husband for Father’s Day. It’s our go to place for special occasions. We had to wait in a long line out front for approximately 10 minutes to drop our car off with the valet. A couple valet drivers were driving the cars like race cars. I guess because they were so backed up but unacceptable none the less. The food was excellent. Our server was nice but kept forgetting I was gluten free. He spent a lot of time standing around talking. He was a little disappointing. The live guitar player was enjoyable but the music was a little loud. Not our best trip to Salt. Probably won’t be back for a while.

    We had 4 excellent meals and the service was exquisite. Unfortunately, the online menu doesn’t match the restaurant’s menu because my husband was for sure going to order the Seafood pasta again and we were told it was not being offered, he has his heart set on that dish for Father’s Day weekend.

Every single person that worked there was extremely accommodating, friendly, and only wanted to do whatever they could to keep us happy and enjoying the meal!

    The service was excellent except for one miss, but the food was rather average for the price. Although, I would add that the level the fish and steak entrees were cooked was exceptional. Specialized salts were offered at the table which piqued our interest, but we had no opportunity to try them as the food was already near to over salted when it was served. The one miss occurred serving the halibut. The server poured out ALL of the leeks and sauce over dish, so everything just tasted like leeks.

    We’ve been going here every year for approaching a decade with our twin boys who are now 15. Even though the chef and menu have changed it is still a fabulous fine dining experience that is hard to beat anywhere. The service is amazing especially given circumstances in the last couple of years there are a lot of fine dining restaurants that struggle in that category but we had 3 to 4 people checking on us regularly to make sure we have everything we need! And the ambiance and acoustic guitarist are top shelf. Can’t wait to go back next summer!

    Exceptional dining experience. From service to food to dessert, this restaurant tucked on the shore of Amelia island is a gem! I’ll go again and again. Our server, Courtney, was the most knowledgeable and personable waitress I have ever experienced. We’ve eaten at restaurants in New York, Beijing, Paris, London, and Cape town, and Salt, with it’s ocean view, exquisitely prepared food, and knowledgeable, friendly staff, is on par with the best.

The food was amazing and I loved that when it came out the food runner explained exactly what it was and how best to eat it. I was blown away and I’ve never experienced service like that before. I will be back for every special occasion.

    Prompt, attentive seating and service. Comfortable chairs, although not much of a view if seated in back of restaurant. While I appreciated the simplicity of the menu descriptives, you would want to inquire as to preparations of various offerings before ordering. I was expecting a hot Foie Gras appetizer rather than a terrine, but my fault for not asking. Best dishes were octopus and pasta. Halibut was delicate and beautiful, but mildly flavored. Accoutrements such as flavored salts, amuse bouche, dessert chocolates were all well-received and thoughtful. Overall a lovely dining experience.
