    Felt like we were being rushed out. Waiters several times came in asking if we would like our plates to be removed when we still clearly had items on the plate we were working on. Pork ribs were rather dry.

    I last visited SALT in 2019 and I was so glad to be back. The Chef’s bar seating is an awesome experience if you are dining by yourself or with just one other person. It’s cool to see how everything comes together. The service experience is pretty good, all the serves seem to be encouraged to help at all tables and they are very polite and personable. The food is really where this restaurant excels. Everything was cooked to perfection, my pork chop was something I’ll never forget, so juicy, it’s undoubtedly their best dish. The cocktails were good but the wine and spirits options go beyond their cocktail menu. This place is just a good a date night spot as it is for a business dinner. Kudos to the owners and staff here!

    Great food and ambiance. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. From the filet to the fish, everything was excellent. The dessert was spectacular. The food here is outstanding. The service could have been more attentive and prompt (we waited on water/tea for all of our meal). This is not normal from my previous experiences and I will chalk it up to a one off. 4/5 stars

    Service was outstanding. The server was friendly and attentive. I ordered the scallops which were good, but it was missing some flavor. My husband ordered the fish tacos which he was disappointed on the how small the tortillas were which made it difficult to pick up. Overall, good food and ambiance.

    My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Salt. I made reservations and let them know his name and occasion. When we arrived, they had a special customized menu for his birthday. Dinner was delicious. The duck is my husband’s favorite. The sauce it is paired with makes the dish. I had the fried chicken and infused jalapeño mashed potatoes… my favorite. We ended the meal with the PB & J dessert. So good! The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Salt never disappoints.

    The service and ambience were good, however for the price the quality of food was disappointing. It lacked flavor and the meat was dry for both the pork chop and ribs. The macaroni was delicious though, price screams high end yet it was comparable to Applebee's. I could of enjoyed a Ruth Chris meal for this price.

    I can't say enough good things about our experience tonight. I had a reservation for my mother's birthday and the restaurant was so kind. The printed birthday wishes on my mother's menu and all the staff were sure to wish her a happy birthday as we walked to our table. I hate that I forgot the name of our waitress, but she was very helpful in recommending sides with our meal. All the food was wonderful. 4 different entrees, 2 sides and several salads. This was my mom's first time at the restaurant and she loved the scallops. My steak was perfect. My dad and husband loved their fish meals. Our waitress suggested the baked Alaska for dessert. It was so good. Different ice cream flavors than the traditional ones we are used to from the store, but they went so well together. The ambiance was lovely. Not too loud, even though the restaurant was very popular. Waitstaff was attentive without being annoying. The drinks were delicious, both mixed and the wine. Can't wait to go back. They made this experience for my mom so incredible. We had a terrific night.

    Salt has always been a favorite to enjoy a good meal. This latest visit was a disappointment due to some of the staple dishes weren’t up to par. the usual amazing mac & cheese was undercooked, cold and lacked flavor along. The jalapeño mashed potatoes were cold as well. The fried chicken was, of course amazing as always. We did have the salt board as an appetizer and that has improved. It’s really packed and is full flavor.
