The food was way overpriced and didn't not taste good pork was dry salmon was not tasty no season drinks was watered down no alcohol in it and the waiter was races he didn't ask us if we wanted blankets when asked to get the heater bt asked the white couple next to us. It was so trash I wish I can get my money back

We ordered cheeseburger for brunch. The burger was dry (over cooked), had tendon, chewy bits, mixed in. The fries were greasy, must have been re-fried before serving.
However, Chef was able to substitute the standard American cheese with blue cheese. So the flavor of burger was outstanding. Next time, we will inquire how burger is made, request median-rare, and get substitute for fries.

The server was attentive, we had excellent service.

The ambience on the terrace is lovely, facing the marina. The king salmon was excellently fresh and prepared. But the service, while gracious, was a bit strange and slow. The 6'oclock dinner turned into a chilly spring overcast evening but for some reason the staff refused to turn on the gas heating lamp that would have made dining so much more pleasant. It was finally turned on when we were nearly done, and then not at full register.
The menu was quite limited and rather pricey. On a really nice note: my friend and I were each celebrating birthdays and we were treated to free desserts of great vanilla ice cream with fudge sauce.

I was told for Covid restrictions, there was a 90 minute limit for the table. Our reservation was for 11:00AM and we were seating around 11:10. Did not get greeted by our server until roughly 11:30. She took our drink orders, and addition to the drinks that were ordered we requested water for the table. Alcohol and coffee were served first and this was around 11:45, still not water. Had to ask if we could finally order just before 12:00. Not sure how they expect us to order and eat in 30 minutes. Was just ridiculous, food was amazing as always, but they definitely need to work on their service.

The bar area is extremely crowded and not very clean. The help seem to be disjointed in their messaging regarding where you can sit, mask/no mask (no one in bar wore mask) but we were not allowed to sit inside dining area where not one person sat. The valet parking is confusing in terms of same amount to park whether or not you valet and the waitress asks you for your valet stub, but takes nothing off for eating there.
The food was above average, one of the best places to eat in the marina and our waitress was great for dinner! Just a few kinks to work out post covid and it will definitely be the best place for fine dining in the Marina with spectacular views and great outside dining!!!

I had the pancakes which tasted liked cardboard , the chicken sausage had no taste , cappuccino was awful and the potatoes were cold !!! I would not recommend .

Salt is a very pleasant venue, right on the water in Marina del Rey - but the menu is way overpriced for what it is, and the food was nice - but not amazing. The tomato and avocado salad costs $24.00, and came with (no lie) fewer than 10 cherry tomatoes and about 1/10 of an avocado; the seafood soup was also close to $20 and was a cup of very nice broth with 2 shrimp and 1 mussel in it. I’m no stranger to fine dining, but this is not what I would consider a fine dining restaurant, and the food quality simply does not justify the price.

I went there to celebrate a birthday. We decided to go for the $45 per person brunch. From the price point it was completely worth it. The food was very delicious and enough for 2 people. We actually couldn’t finish the last 2 courses as we were already full. The service was great! Our waitress kept checking on us and verified when to send the next course. We will definitely be back for brunch!

It was cold outside, even with the heater. If we can borrow a blanket, that would make it warmer.
But overall it was a good time.

Everything was great. Pretty sure I was charged full price for virgin drinks, but that's OK. Food was great, service was what you'd expect right after covid and them not being fully staffed. (Long wait for main course) Patio dining was amazing. We were even offered blankets cuz it got windy. I'm definitely going to look into booking a room next time and getting the full experience!!

It was my niece/goddaughter’s 21st birthday. We had birthday mimosa brunch for her at Salt. The food was delicious, and service was outstanding. We had a larger group of 7. The restaurant did all they could to accommodate our large group and sat us near each other so we were able to enjoy brunch despite the 6 person seating limit. Thank you Salt!

There is minimum variety when it comes to food selection. To be so close to the water you would think there would be more seafood selection; wrong. I wasn’t impressed at all.

Really enjoyed celebrating my birthday dinner at Salt! Service, ambiance and the food (and of course the drinks) were perfect. We ordered octopus - tender with good flavor; Brussel Sprouts had a great sauce which added flavor; filet, scallops and halibut were all tasteful. We loved the crème brulet and pretzel dessert! I also stayed at the Marina del Rey hotel; enjoyed the stay and location! Thank you for a great dinner and stay!
