Salt at The Ritz-Carlton Ratings and Reviews
Salt is truly amazing! It should be the reason you visit the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island! It is hard to put into words just how delicious the food is! I had a tuna appetizer and the elk entree, plus we shared the dark chocolate souffle and goat cheese souffle. We were able to try several different salts. The different breads were also delicious. Our server, Patty, took us on a kitchen tour. We wish we had known we could do a private kitchen meal. Next time we will do the tasting menu. We loved Salt and see why it is rated so high!
Primary disappointment was due to the service. I️t took nearly 30 min from the time we were seated before we saw the waitress and that was only because we finally asked. This unacceptable anywhere let alone a five diamond restaurant. We were offered complimentary drinks but the long delays persisted until we got our meals. As a result I left feeling like I paid too much for the experience and probably won’t ever return.
A five star restaurant in every sense. An ocean view with wonderful food. All at a five star price. But this restaurant is worth it. We both had fillet and lobster. They shelled it in the kitchen (at our request). Both were perfectly cooked. Desert was 3 small souffles.....each a different flavor. The service was excellent......there when we needed them, and otherwise they didn't bother us. The signature is un-salted butter with the rolls........with an assortment of flavored (imported) salts to go on the rolls. I have never run into that before. I will go back.
My husband and I have been to Amelia Island three times and each time we have made a point of dining at Salt because of the superb culinary experience. Each time has been a complete delight!
The food is spectacular both from the standpoints of ingredients and presentation. What a treat!
Service is so genuinely caring. Atmosphere is beautiful. Really a sweet time.
Innovative and creative.
We saved the best till last on a five day stay on Amelia Island! The food at Salt was innovative and perhaps a little experimental with some great unexpected flavors. Delicious in-house bread came with hand churned, unsalted butter and a selection of flavored salts
as befitting the restaurant’s name. The fabulously velvety chilled white asparagus soup was gorgeously surrounded by a generous amount of lobster and shaved asparagus, and I would have ordered the salmon entree just to have the unctuous leek bread pudding! The snapper had a tantalizing yet undefinable Asian spin, and both fish dishes were perfectly moistly cooked, but the highlight of our evening was the trio of soufflés - justifiably a house speciality.
The service was professional and knowledgeable without being overpowering. A delightful touch was the gift of a box of our favorite salt (In this case jalapeño)! A delightful end to a few days on Amelia Island.
Dined at Salt on our second evening on Amelia Island. Ate at another resort restaurant the evening before after being advised that it was best on the Island. Oh my was that advise wrong. The experience at Salt was everything you would expect at a Ritz property. Beginning with the valet greeting us by name, the entire evening was fabulous. Food and service were exceptional. Overall the evening exceeded our expectation !!
When you can make grits a reason to come back, you know you have an amazing chef. Combine that with interesting salads, perfectly done meats and deserts you can't say no to despite being full, and you know you've found a special place. Thanks for a great night.
This is an amazing restaurant with an extremely talented chef and staff. Yes, one is paying top dollar but it is worth every cent for the knowledge, service and attention that each course presents. "Salt" translates into one of the best fine dining experiences on Amelia Island.
We have eaten here many times over the years. Never fails. Exquisite dining experience EVERY time. We have eaten at the private kitchen table several times as well. Awesome. Highly recommend it. Chef Rick and his staff go above and beyond on each and every visit. Looking forward to our next trip.
Salt was an incredible dining experience. The staff is so friendly and make you feel so special. I highly recommend the root vegetable salad, and the GOAT CHEESE SOUFFLEE! Oh my goodness I would go back just for that soufflee! The salt pairings are a special treat as well. We will go back for another special occasion for sure!
The service at Salt was excellent! I highly recommend the 4 course chef's choice sample tasting. Don't let the portions fool you. They may look small, but are very filling. The plating is beautiful and the taste is delicious. Our servers were very knowledgable on the menu items and were well prepared to make the birthday celebration a personalized experience. We had originally reserved a window table with a view. However, upon arrival, the window tables were still taken. The staff made a valiant effort and relocated our seats to ensure we had the view we wished for while dining. The food, service, and experience at Salt was worth every penny. Thank you so much to everyone for making the night a special one!
We enjoy any opportunity to go to Salt. Chef Rick, and his team, are culinary artist. Besides the many great items on the menu, including signature dishes, the adventure menu is an excellent choice. Whatever your preferences may be, the Somalia will expertly pair wine with your meal. Salt is a definite must for foodies.
