                                                    Salt was amazing! We brought our children 13 and 14 and they absolutely loved the chefs menu. We were celebrating my husbands retirement and they even put it at the top of the menu. Very nice touch along with excellent service will definitely be back!

                                                    The service and ambiance were absolutely excellent. They added very special and personal touches to our experience which were surprising and thoughtful. Food and presentation were also wonderful. My only suggestion would be to add to the wine by glass options. It was fairly standard with many of what I would consider every day table wine (just marked up 4 times the actual cost). I don't mind paying more, but with that I expect maybe a tier above what was available.

                                                    Our dinner at Salt was wonderful! The staff was so friendly and the live acoustic guitar (may have been another instrument) music was a very nice touch. The service was truly impeccable. The parsnip soup was delicious and so was the soufflé! The different salts were awesome, too. They gave us complimentary salts of our choice to go home and three complimentary desserts. Salt is a MUST if you are staying at the Ritz!

                                                    The service was exceptional, with the entire staff on the floor addressing any issues, questions or needs immediately for any table on the floor; rather than leaving each table on its own. As a result there was never an empty water glass, an unfolded napkin, an unaddressed need or used plate. The food was creative and delicious. Our lobster as part of the chef’s tasting menu was slightly overdone, chewy and less flavorful as a result. But, the remaining dishes more than compensated for this slight misstep.

Everything was so on point. So excellent including the food, wine, and not to mention the beautiful ambiance and amazing views. The acoustic guitar music was an unexpected treat as well. One of the best dining experiences I have had in awhile:) 5 stars top notch choice for a beautiful special occasion evening! Can’t wait to return.

                                                    My wife and I were celebrating our 30-year anniversary with my brother and his wife. Our server (Eva) was great. She was very attentive to our needs and describing the menu. Our drinks and meals were excellent! They couldn’t have been better on our special evening. Thank you Salt!

                                                    The ambiance was perfect, not too bright, great guitar player, and nice and romantic. The wait staff is very attentive. We ordered the Chef’s tasting which was the best meal I have had in a very long time. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening.
