Gillian was the best!!! We had eaten at Salt the night before where there was much stress with large parties and lack of good management. Tonight was a completely different experience. Kudos to Gillian for helping is with a great dinner on our last night at the hotel.
This one was hard to evaluate on the options listed above. There was obviously a huge problem with management/planning for the evening's dinner. It was blamed on 2 large groups and kitchen staffing. The brightest star was our server Gillian (hence the "outstanding" for service). Gillian exuded grace under pressure. Many were upset with her and we tried to be as kind as possible to her - fully realizing that the management issues had nothing to do with her. So kudos to Gillian and her co-workers for their efforts in trying to keep the heels on the bus during a very difficult evening!
We love Salt - on this visit we were seated on one of the banguettes in the dining room under the beautiful original dome....the dome however acts as an echo chamber and we were very distracted over hearing conversations all around us. Otherwise the ambiance, service and food are top notch.
Overall enjoyed. Food was good though gluten free options limited. Service was Ok, not exceptional but fine.
This is a resort, and there was a large wedding party which I bet affected food and service, certainly noise and crowd. Food was solid. I recommend.
Service good food okay.. nothing special.
Excellent service. Very good food, highly recommend!
It would have gotten 5 stars but we weren’t finished with appetizers before main course was served. A little too fast for us.
Doug is an awesome waiter. Great attention to detail. The food is fantastic.
We had a great time. We got there early and sat on the outside deck with a drink prior to our seating. Our waiter Nick was great. We like to share several plates and they were more than accommodating. Food was very good and service was great. Will go back!
The food is good (often local), the menu interesting. Service is very pleasant, but slow. If you want time to talk, this is an excellent place to go. If you are in a hurry, not so good.
First time at Salt. Great experience- great ocean front restaurant, fantastic food and atmosphere.
The chef at Salt did it again. This is not my first time here and you never know what to expect when you return to a memorable restaurant. Everything was fresh and delicious and surprising. We had an all seafood dinner from top to bottom and it was exquisite. The entire staff, including from the Wentworth By The Sea, to which it's attached, especially Jason Bartlett and Mary Carey Foley are top notch and make the evening even more special with their 5 Star attention. We drive 2 hours to get here, and are already planning our next visit.
We have been here before and have always enjoyed our meals. This particular evening was great as we had a great server who was so friendly, funny and attentive! He made the evening! Although the menu is/seems pricey, the food is delicious!
This is now our go to place for get togethers. Food is fabulous but save room for the dessert.
Loved it! We will be back! The atmosphere, drinks, food and service were all fabulous! We had a great time and thought the prices were reasonable for the location and atmosphere.
Dinner at Salt was delicious and the atmosphere was stellar. While the server was both knowledgeable and friendly, the meal took an extraordinarily long time...almost 3 hours start to finish and there were just 3 people in our party.
Attentive server (some of the staff did not appear to be very well trained), beautiful property and very good food.
Our server was very knowledgeable. We had a flatbread pizza for an appetizer & all
If the entrees were delicious.
Second time at Wentworth. We were going to try Latitudes this visit but the menu at Salt was calling us back . The Lobster Fra Diablo was outstanding. The warmed olives were also fabulous. Need to try the nuts next time - aroma was amazing.
One of our favorites in the Portsmouth area - menu choices, food and service are very very good.
The food, presentation and menu at SALT are all very good. Unfortunately, the service is lacking. The staff person never once checked to see if our meals were ok, nor did she offer to refill our waters. For the price, I would expect better service. She seemed very disinterested.
Great food the lobster bisque, lobster Diablo and lamb were great. Fairly priced wine list
Great drinks, great food. Lovely staff! A wonderful date night.
The service was outstanding. The wine list exceptional and the food was phenomenal! We have now rated Salt Kitchen and Bar as one of our all time best!!
The food and service were great; however, we were sat at a table with lounge chairs and a regular size table. I’m 5’11” and the table was up to my chest, so this made dining uncomfortable to say the least. If it wasn’t for that I would give it 5 stars. Get rid of the lounge chairs in the dining room.
Aug 3. Dinner lobster fra diavalo was excellent. Fresh well cooked lobster, pasta al denote mildly spicy
Also scollops with linguine was well cooked succulent scollops
Good hotel all around restaurant. Ate 4 meals in 2 plus days. No complaints.
We stayed at the Inn but I went to dinner by myself because my husband had to leave one night earlier than planned. So glad I stayed and went to Salt for dinner. Service was excellent, both the host and the server. Food was fresh and perfectly cooked. Seating was plush and the view amazing. I’m a frequent business traveler in Europe where single diners are normal. Not always the case in the states but I here I was taken care of and made to feel special. That’s what fine dining is all about and what so many restaurants forget.
Our server Doug was the best I've seen in years. Great food, great wine list
It's a beautiful room,food is plentiful and delicious. our server was attentive,a pro for sure. The hotel,restaurant and setting ..fantastic. the place is worth the beautiful ride
We have been here on numerous occasions. Great table but our server got 3 tables all at once. So service was slow. She was very personable. Salt salad was fantastic and the bread too. Pizza once again was extremely disappointing. Very salty and too undercooked in middle although edges were perfectly crisp. We will return but wil never order pizza again
This was not our first visit to Salt Kitchen so we knew what to expect. It did not disappoint. Our server, Doug, was outstanding and we spent a very leisurely evening over cocktails, appetizers and dinner. All the dishes were wonderful and I am now in love with the Pear Ginger Martini.
A lot of new restaurants popping up on the Seacoast, some with great food, but Salt has an elegance that just seems to say...tonight is special.
This was our first time to the SALT Kitchen and Bar. We were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday. Such a beautiful restaurant with excellent staff. I would highly recommend dining here and my husband and I can't wait to go back
Everything was fantastic. I recommend that you save room for dessert. The homemade ice cream that is served with most desserts was unbelievable. What a special place. Plan on walking around the complex that is situated on the oceans. Beautiful gardens. You will not be disappointed.
Salt is one of our favorite restaurants on the Seacoast and is a perfect combination of fine dining and a classic environment. The halibut with homemade pasta is spectacular as are the prosciutto wrapped scallops. The soups are always wonderful and the desserts divine.
The wine list is substantial and fairly priced and the service friendly and non intrusive. Salt is everything we want in fine dining!
Always good food here; very consistent and many, varied choices. I've been here many times for lunch and it's a reliably good choice. However, the restaurant was very crowded this time and our service was extremely slow. Our waitress was friendly but seemed inexperienced so we're hoping this was just a fluke. Service has been good in the past.
Birthday dinner. Very special. Very nice waiter and staff. Attentive, but not hovering. No rush. Lovely view. Food delicious. The lobster bisque amazing. Birthday Girl loved the bone marrow appetizer.
