Was there on vacation. Disappointed that we did not receive the table with a view as was requested when making the reservation a few weeks in advance. However, they made up for it with free desert. Food was very good.

Our wait staff was excellent, our food was wonderful. The only issue we had, was for such a great place we would have expected the dress code to be more enforced.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were greeted with warm expressions and helpful staff. Every single person was kind and generous. The food was absolutely incredible from the beginning until the end. Absolutely zero complaints from us. Each course was cooked to perfection. Stacey, our server, was incredible attentive and kind. He was exactly the kind of person we wanted to guide us through our wonderful evening. We will be back again!

The first thing: they gave us a table with the ocean I front of us. It was very expensive. The service was grand. The food was very good.

Beautiful place. Great service. Most of the food was very good, seafood was perfect. One steak dish was ordered medium rare and came out well done (incinerated), so all of our party ate while our food was warm, and that person ate when we were done. The quail eggs in their specialty steak dish with the salt block were also well done. These are basic cooking skills, so someone in the kitchen is not paying attention. This should not happen.

We went for anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it special... names printed on menu and special dessert plate. We did the tasting menu and it was very good. We would probably not do it again as the cost was high and I was not blown away by the courses. They were tasty but not really outside the box. Scallops were a little cold and I would have expected a nicer meat than pork for the final course. It’s fun that it’s a blind tasting though. If we went again we would just order from the menu.

We dined here on our last night of vacation and were so glad we saved the best for last! The food was amazing and the service was even better. One of our family's favorite dinners. We were a party of 5 with teen/older children and everyone had a great time. Would definitely book there again!

Spent the weekend on Amelia Island and so grateful I was able to get a reservation at Salt. The tuna tartar is one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. All the food was amazing and I cannot wait until I can return.

Salt came highly recommended and met or exceeded all our expectations! We celebrated my wife’s birthday and the staff included lots of touches, including a personalized Happy Birthday” vegan menu, that made it very special. Food and service were outstanding. Wonderful experience and can’t wait to visit again!

Great atmosphere, outstanding service, average food but way overpriced. We can afford the $300 dinner but expect a special dinner, which the SALT is not. Don’t waste your money

Everything about our evening was perfection. It was a family dinner, celebrating my daughter and her fiancée who are eloping next week. Upon arrival, and after a warm and gracious greeting from Robert, he started off our celebration with a champagne sabrage. The food was delicious, service outstanding (thank you Craig) and the guitarist’s music made for a wonderful ambience. I could not have asked for more and highly recommend Salt for any occasion.

Fabulous meal from start to finish. High end service, food and atmosphere. Was expecting stuffy, found fun and easy atmosphere, complete with live music. Food is pricey, but well worth it for a great splurge dinner. From cool presentations, to perfectly cooked items, loved every bite. Smoked shrimp were served under a dome of smoke. Shrimp were so tender, with a crispy potato crust. The tasty grilled romaine salad-so unique. The, lean, tender and flavorful bison tenderloin was a nice change. Lamb chops were a good size, cooked rare over a wood fire grill. So juicy! Pasta with seafood was heavy on the seafood, light on the pasta making the perfect balance. Sea bass was cooked perfectly. Sides of gruyere whipped potatoes were to die for, kale just ok. Save room for soufflé, so puffy and rich. Complimentary macaroons and handmade truffles, caramels finished off the best meal on the island. We’ll be back!
