We were advised by the server to order 5 tapas for 2 and I think it was just okay. If you have a person in your party who normally consumes more food you would need to order more. The quality of the food was inconsistent. I felt that there were not enough pepper in one dish, and then not enough salt in the other. The best dish that I had was the scallop which was done just right.
Also, we were not told in advance that we would need to pay $6 for the bottle of water that we got. We asked for plain simple water. And when the server said she would bring us a bottle, we didn't know that she would bring one that we would have to pay for it later. The server should have asked us more questions to make sure the bottle was exactly what we would want.
I will not visit the restaurant again, unfortunately.

Overal it was lovely. Great food , polite service good recommendations on food. They do need to slow down a bit with the wine pouring though, I like to drink at my own pace not one comparable with a frat party !!

It was a bit irritating that there were zero descriptions of any of the wine. My table of six had to look up the wines on lcbo to make a choice.

Our experience at Salt was good. This was my second experience with tapas style food and the portions at your restaurant were much more satisfying. The food was delicious and beautifully accompanied by sauce or vegetable where appropriate. Wine selection was lovely if a bit pricey.

I loved the food and the eclectic wine list was great. Service was friendly and knowledge without being overbearing and the dishes were well spaced between courses.

A beautiful little restaurant. Wonderful ambience and delicious food. The service was excellent. My only reservation in coming back was the value. The tapas style dishes, although excellent, were not enough to fill is, we needed to order more plates than suggested and the price became very expensive for dinner for 4. Any return visit will be reserved for special occasions!

The atmosphere was very lively and at times very loud but that subsided when a few tables left. Food was good but I found the summer menu more enjoyable compared to the autumn menu in terms of freshness, creativity and variety.

Salt is a special restaurant to sample numerous small dishes alongside excellent wine and/or cocktails. Also, the ambiance leaves nothing to be desired... a simply beautiful and elegant setting. We’re looking forward already to our next visit! 🍷

I don't know why it took me so long to come here, since I have been to most of the restaurants on the Ossington strip. The food was interesting and well prepared. I was surprisingly pleased with the tomato salad, which was delicious, and the avocado toast, which we added on just to ensure we had some vegetables. The wine was excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. I will definitely be back, and bring others to try it!

Weekday evening - not busy so service was not an issue. Nice, rustic, softly-lit (bring a flashlight for the menu if you’re older!). Foie gras was excellent with perfect brioche to accompany it. Spicy lamb meatballs lived up to their billing but both of us preferred the red shrimp risotto we share. Nice spot to get your ‘vinho verde’ fix as well!

I come here often. Always a surprise. The menu has changed again and the crab and chorizo croquettes are a delicious addition. Great ambiance with subdued lighting and attentive service, and a great wine list. Don’t forget a cocktail to start. Top quality.
