Average. Fairly inexpensive and something different than the usual options in Vancouver. Be aware that they have a communal table which you can end up at with reservations which I am not a fan of especially when you’re just a couple. Lots of by the glass wines which is nice for a quick dinner, but limited mainly to B.C. options. Service was slow to start and then too quick after as the table space is super tight.
It was our anniversary night, my wife and I had a below average experience last night. We’ve had better experience(s) in the past at Salt Tasting Room. We were served complimentary glasses of champagne due to our special occasion which was great, but it went downhill from there. The table next to us had completely intoxicated guests when we walked in; they were extremely loud and completely impossible to be around and I was shocked we were seated next to them to begin with. The even bigger surprise was that they were served another bottle of wine when it was obvious to everybody on the upper floor they needed to be sent home. Any other night we definitely would’ve walked out of there.
The server was great, you could tell he was new, but he took his time to explain the menu and offered great suggestions.
Had to stop at Tacofina after because I was still hungry.
Went to celebrate a birthday and everything was absolutely delicious. We were little out of our element with all the choices so we got the set menu and let them choose the wine pairings for our flights. It's a pretty reasonably price for what feels like a fancy date.
The cheeses were some of the best I've had in Vancouver, and the wine was very good as well. I had a Cabernet, but there were many other good wine options. I might come back just for the Camembert though!
It was good experience, lots of choices. Nice wine.
We had a table for two. We ordered 1 butcher plate, 1 cheese plate and 2 wine flight. When everything came, we hardly had any space to put our plates on the table. The table was way too small! Uncomfortable! We almost knocked over our wine glasses. Also the place is very noisy.
Every time I have guests from Brazil that like wine, I bring to Salt. This time, I was quite disappointed. We arrived at 7:30 (I made reservation beforehand), we were quickly seated; however, it took more than 15 minutes to have someone to take our order! never happened before. In addition, it also took a long time to have our wines and food. My guests were clearly upset. I don't know if that happened because it was a Tuesday, but i believe that the quality of services has to stand regardless of the day.
Don't necessairly come here for a large meal, but come to enjoy some great wine, mead, meat & cheese with the company of some friends or with that special someone. If you are overwhelmed by their menu just let your server know what you like and let them decide!
For the high price point and small size of the wine flights and cheese plate I expected more education/participation from the servers in explaining the flavours and pairings. The way they were dropped off and left with little to no explanation left me feeling underwhelmed. Eg. where are the cheeses from? What would be good condiments/why?
The service was really prompt, friendly and professional but for a “tasting room” and the price I expected more.
Definitely a fun experience and will maybe try it again on a slower night to see if they can deliver a more interactive experience.
Had fun trying new things!! Food was really tasty and the wine pairing was spot on!!!
Great wine, great snack pairings and helpful staff. Sort of cold feel to the room tho that night, was dark and rainy outside but there doesn’t seem a place to hang your jackets.. so put them on the floor? As mentioned the staff were helpful with making pairings for you but they were not particularly friendly or welcoming, maybe once you were on the way out. Overall would go again, hopefully the couple arguing loudly behind us won’t be there!
A great spot to go for a nice outing with coworkers after work. Also a lovely restaurant for dates. Loved that the waitress knew all about the offerings and was able to guide my boyfriend and me through the selections to pick items we would really enjoy.
Very slow service. Good food. But slow.
