The ambience is lovely with the water and boats. The staff is a bit disorganized. Food came out sporadically for our table. We had to request ordered food they had forgotten. Syrup did not arrive with pancakes. They need to educate their staff to serve everyone at a table at the same time and to ensure all that was ordered is delivered.

Made us sit outside , it was windy and cold , they said the only tables available were outside , this did not seem the case .... however even if it was they should have made it clear on booking as we would not have gone there had we known we had to sit in the freezing wind at 7pm

We stayed at the Marina del Rey Hotel overnight to facilitate an early departure the next morning out of LAX. Dining at SALT seemed the easiest option. What a lucky surprise for us that it also happened to be delicious. Sitting on the patio overlooking the harbor was delightful. As it was a bit chilly the waitress happily brought me a cozy blanket. All bundled up we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. As a starter we had the tuna. For our main we both had the chicken. The menu selection is small but adequate and everything is cleanly prepared. The cocktails are also a good pour.

It seems as if it would provide for a better customer service experience if our server had all or many of her tables on one side of the outdoor spaces. There were long stretches when we did not see her; we presume she was serving in other parts of the restaurant. We have also noticed this on several other occasions in the past with other servers.

I guess if you choose to go you go for the scenery which is great, out there in the marina. Food quality is not bad though not anything extraordinary either, they did look very pretty though. The portion though was definitely on the very small side, the $16 beets and endive salad came with four tiny endive leaves and total about four little bytes. This was the first time my wife complained ever that she did not have enough to eat. The two of us ordered one appetizer, one salad, one pasta and $80 later we both left hungry.

Made reservations for brunch. Their Idea of “brunch” was a lunch menu. Huh? No eggs, porridge, pancakes, waffles, bacon, etc.
Unfortunately, we bought the “breakfast and valet” package. Stupidly thought brunch would have some resemblance to breakfast.
Found a restaurant elsewhere.

The food was not up to par. The fish was undercooked and .frozen . the filet was not cooked properly. However, the chicken was very good. And the dessert were superb. The Caesar salad was excellent. The beet salad was also very good. It was very noisy so we had to move our seats.

Excellent service and food in a lovely setting right on the Marina. There are also tables and soft seating near fire pits outside. I will eat here again and would entertain clients there. It’s pricey as are most hotel restaurants but good

We have eaten here before (within the last 4 months). At that time the server had to many tables, but he did his best & was very personable. He received a nice tip. 12/24 my date & I went here again. A 10oz pork chop & a few steamed vegetables, $38. I asked if 🍞 was available? Billed $2.50 for a small roll. One bowl of clam chowder, 2 ☕ s. Granted we didn't "Have" to eat here. I like returning to a place where there were reasonable prices, service. But Christmas Eve I feel we were completely taken advantage of. With a 18% tip (not the waiters fault) $98. I wouldn't return here on a bet. We've had 30+ booking through Open Table. Be prepared to pay with your 1st born if there is a quasi holiday (days before or the same day) Best to Open Table. Not their fault

If you can sit outside and enjoy the views of the Marina, this is a wonderful place. It's not noisy, the ambience is top and the service and food are excellent.

Regulars here and service has regressed over time. Front hostess staff needs attitude check. But, Manager tried to make it up to us by repositioning us to a nicer table. She represented a real customer service minded person!

Catching up with friends, it was our first visit. As it was a chilly night we decided to stay inside,. The ax ambiance is modern and comfortable. The selection were tasty and beautifully presented. Ordered avocado hummus, clam chowder and beet burrata salad. Salt tequila drink was tasty. Looking forward occasion to return.

The food is wonderful. We’ve been before and it’s consistently good, but our server was not. He was inattentive and just not on top of his tables and the restaurant wasn’t even busy at the time. We will for sure go back, but not have him as our server

I thought it was over priced for what it was. Limited menu. We sat inside and it was hectic with waiters and customers walking all through the place.
Really wanted to like it more.
