Great room. Good food, but we’ve had much better.
Service was off. Got shushi in 15 minutes, roll in one hour. Extra speedy when said no dessert-table cleared even though we weren’t through. Glad we went. Won’t go back.
Another yummy & memorable meal @ Salt House.
The creepy Don Quixote mural on the back wall & host with the most biz partner Doug Washington are gone, but the food & experience were the same. Good job Mitch & Steve & longterm Staff & supervisor Reagan. Our kinda missing French woman server was sweet & interesting.
The food is amazing. A must try if you have not been here. The decedent warm bastardized with duck fat was melt in your mouth delicious. Followed by one of the best preparations of duck I have had. Scene is lively and the bar was packed for happy hour.
We found the service to be very attentive, the food was creative, flavorful. Desert was phenomenal!! Great staff good food and a very hip vibe.
Great service. Food was very good. Great place for a business lunch.
Very non-vegan friendly.
We were 5 people for a business lunch. As the only vegan in the table, I would expect there would be at least one decent dish they could make. When I asked the waitresses what the vegan options would be, she said they could only do the mixed salad (which isn't even a main course). I asked if they could add-in some things so it won't be just leaves- so I got 3 eggs in the salad... the waitresses didn't even apologize too much.
Bottom line- don't go there if you're vegan or expecting good service.
Great all around! Really enjoyed the service and ambiance of the place. Service was amazing and easy to have a conversation with a small group.
Service was slightly slow, but very friendly
Nice place with good food, vibe and ambiance. It's VERY noisy however so therefore difficult for lunchtime business discussions.
Id return for drinks and the poutine but not entrees unfortunately
We enjoyed a wonderful meal and attentive service. As we were celebrating our anniversary, they even welcomed us with a glass of sparkling wine. There was not a bite that wasn’t delicious. We started with the shishito peppers and the quail egg. I had the beet salad and my husband had the roasted romenesco with burrata. All were delicious! The cod was amazing and so was my husband’s duck.
We can hardly wait to return for another visit!
Menu is much less interesting than it used to be, service was absolutely terrible - it took 15 minutes before anyone came to greet us at the table. Appetizer came before our wine. We asked for bread when we sat down and again when our wine arrived - it arrived with our main course which was served 55 minutes after we sat down. Our server had a table of 10 that he was far more interested in attending to. Noise level was incredibly high - we were screaming at each other to have a conversation. Food (when it finally arrived) was good.
Very noisy, got my order a bit wrong but nothing too bad. I would recommend for very a casual lunch.
The hostess was amazing to fit in an extra diner on the fly -
This was my 2nd visit to Salt House. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, but not intrusive.
The food is fantastic, from presentation, to flavors, and pretty good portions. I recommended the Grilled Pork Chop to my date, he LOVED it (as did I on my first visit). I had the Dry Aged British Baldy Ribeye - damn it was delicious! We shared the Matcha Cheesecake - also really divine. And all very reasonably priced!
For anyone looking for a really great dining experience, that’s not overly stuffy or pretentious, they should try Salt House. It’s quickly become my favorite SF spot!
It was great in spite of the fact I got the HOT pepper in the Shishito Pepper appetizer. The waitress was awesome and brought me milk and then Burrata cheese to sooth my mouth. It worked perfectly! My daughter and I then shared the Short Ribs and Pappardelle which were outstanding! Wine list is awesome too! Sit up in the front if possible - the sound level there is better for old folks like me who like to talk!!
We both got the duck and a couple glasses of wine. Excellent.
I can’t believe how pathetic the ramen was for the price charged and for the turkey salad my colleague ordered. Both were so lackluster in in flavor and kind of skimpy on the portions. I used to love the food at Salt House. What happened?
Visited Salt House for a birthday dinner. 4 stars because the seafood items were average. First the good: The truffle pappardelle pasta was incredible, the best pasta dish ever - including Italy and NYC.
The down side, it was very small serving. The duck breast was excellent. And the apple upside down cake was awesome. The salmon belly "bites" were rather fishy. You might try "one" and if it is not fresh enough for your palate, don't order more. The salmon entrée was also average. It was served with butternut squash which rendered a sweet flavor which didn't quite "go" with salmon (vs the sweet cherry sauce for a more flavorful meat cut such as the duck was spot on).
Came for my birthday! Such a great lunch. The meal was cooked to perfection. Busy at lunch so don’t come in a rush. Great spot for work meals, dates, and special occasions. Never disappoints!
High quality food
Green tea was loose tea and was excellent
Great food, warm hospitality in an historic setting amongst all the new highrises!
Food was great and a very good value. Service was top notch. Perfect choice for a casual but high quality evening.
Hadn’t been in awhile but it used to be great food and cool scene. This time the food, every dish, was uninspiring despite the descriptions.
Food was delicious. Service and greeting were great -- Alison, Sylvie and Andrea did a wonderful job. Only drawback is noise. Would definitely come back.
Food and waitstaff service was excellent. Nice ambiance for a late meal before celebrating New Year 2019. My only complaints were the hostess and the lack of vegetarian meal options.
Our New Year's Eve dinner at Salt House was one to remember! Everything from the service to the end of the meal was phenomenal. This is such a great place to come for a nice night out with friends or a cozy date night. The food is out of the world and the service provided makes it even better.
Great food, a little pricey but I think worth it. Very small dining room and not very private without any scenic views. Our waiter wasn't the most genial but pleasant enough I guess.
They forgot my soup, but took it off the bill. Otherwise it was great.
The drinks are hit or miss. One was great, one was horrible. Wine selection is great (for bottles). The pork chop was good but was 30% fat and slightly overcooked but tasted great even if a little dry. The guy bussing tables tried to take our plates at 10, 20 and 25 minutes after we got out food. Seemed rushed even though more than half of the place was empty. My experience may not be the norm, but I'd have a hard time recommending this place.
So so LOUD
Great service, great food. A bit disappointed that the ribeye was maybe 6oz. For $48, it should be larger IMO.
I'm so glad that Salt House has stood the test of time because the food is DELICIOUS! The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere is vibrant but cozy. Great place!
Salt House is an excellent spot with surprisingly good food. Although it gets pretty busy, service also remains attentive. Recommended.
Food was not inspiring or well prepared. For the price we were expecting a culinary experience!
Always an amazing meal at Salt House! We always look forward to returning and seeing what new items are on the menu.
Food and service are very good. If you’re looking forward a quite place, this is not it. Overall, very pleased.
The burger has always been the very best. This time the quality slipped a bit.
Service and MGMT up were disappointing!
The food was terrific but we waited at a business lunch for over 45 minutes to get our food while all of the other tables around us had been served and were eating. It was so long that one of our party had to take their food to go. When we brought it to the server and then Managers attention they seems non plused and said they would rush our food out. Of course it didn't arrive in time so they packed it to go. Then they were doing nothing as an accomodation so when we stated that at a minimum the "to go" meal should be comped the manager looked at us and actually said " I guess I have no choice" with an attitude! The food was good but not good enough to put up with slow/bad service and an attitude from a manager when we complained.
