$18 for a small, unremarkable Manhattan and not enough food for a 12 year old...

Excellent, as always. Please try to not run out of gluten-free flatbread crusts, though.

SALT was a lovely setting on a cold Saturday afternoon. We had a reservation for 1:00 and were seated right away. The seating was comfortable, the waitress was attentive, friendly and all of our food arrived together. There was a nice variety of dishes offered and we all liked what we had. We had time to visit and did not feel rushed. We look forward to our next visit, perhaps when we can sit on the beautiful deck and take in the view.

While the restaurant is gorgeous, great spot for special occasion dining, the service for both dinner and breakfast was slow. Wait staff seemed particularly inexperienced given the fact that the price and selection of entrees and brunch indicate "upscale" dining. Fortunately, my husband and I enjoy conversation and architectural ambience.

Comfortable atmosphere, classy staff, relaxing bar, contemporary menu. Went on a busy night but our waitress didn't rush us. Was worried by some negative reviews but took the chance rather than leave this beautiful hotel, so glad we did! Had a five star experience, we'll be back.

Food is very good especially the entrees. If you are staying at The Wentworth by the Sea you have to go. It’s great for a drink and dinner for two.

The food and service were both good, my only complaint is with Open Table's search. I did a search for brunch in the Portsmouth area, which Salt/Wentworth does offer. However when we arrived at Salt we were told we had booked lunch not brunch. Reserving for brunch requires a call to the restaurant to book directly. This was not clear on the Open Table website. It was a good experience at Salt, but it was not the "special birthday brunch" that we thought we had booked.

Disappointing:
Reservations made on Saturday, 12/16/17. Service was extraordinarily slow for all drink orders (beer and wine only were ordered). After requesting a second round for a beer we were informed after a 15 minute wait that it was no longer available. Food service was prompt, however all food was cold or lukewarm AND a signature dish was missing two key ingredients that were clearly outlined on the menu. All items on the wine list were grossly overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. No value. We will ensure that we continue to provide our business to the locally owned restaurants in the Portsmouth area vs. a large conglomerate.
