Varied menu, incredible service.. noise level a bit high for my taste,but it’s this way in most restaurants it seems.
It was a great choice for special time with friends..

The overall setting was pleasant, but I recommend to not go on a super busy day like a holiday or a school prom night, as the restaurant tends to get overcrowded. I've been to Saltus on more than one occasion, and I the past, I have occasionally ordered the crab cakes which were huge and full of meat, but my most recent visit was different. The crab cake I received was small in comparison and did not do the job. I was thoroughly disappointed with the amount of food I got and how much I was paying for it. I fo think that if the crab cake is ordered, a soup or salad needs to be ordered with it to be satisfied.

We had steak and it was very good. Nice bread and oil brought to table. Thought the wine list was a little pricey for a bottle. We enjoyed a glass with our meal.

We were seated promptly. Bottle of wine we wanted was not available and was on the wine list. Fried sea bass delicious. Waitress attentive. Very noisy. Would go back.

Crab cakes, filet mignon and grilled scallops were all delicious. All cooked to perfection. Waitress was knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Restaurant is upscale, modern and sophisticated. Noise level is high.

We were disappointed that Saltus did not have more fresh local fish. In fact they had NO local fish. They did have Soft Shell Crab and local shrimp. We chose Shrimp and grits; fine but not great. They did have a nice selection of local Oysters...yummy.

We dined outside with a nice water view. Unfortunately as the evening progressed, little bugs came out..annoying. Some folks elected to go inside (too noisy) we powered through and skipped desert.

The service was impeccable and the total experience was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the corn bisque with crab topping, the pork-chicken liver pate, and the eel sushi. Our favorite was the biggest and best soft shell crab we have ever had. Looking forward to our next visit.

Saltus is a wonderful dining destination, especially for special occasions. They go above and beyond in making sure your experience is memorable for all the right reasons. We’ve been here several times and we haven’t come across a bad choice on the menu yet. Their mussels and wood fired oysters are especially delicious. On a cool night, check out their outdoor fire pit with a yummy chocolate martini or the Saltus Sangria.

My daughter and teenage grandchildren were visiting and I wanted to take them to where I hang out and eat. Of course I was not disappointed nor were my family. The sushi was great and the NY Strip by grandson ordered was cooked to perfection. Great time had by all!
