Came here with my husband and his extended family for father’s day! View of Torrey Pines around sunset was gorgeous! Saw jumping fish and cranes in the lagoon! The service was fabulous here and delicious food. We were a big group with 4 kids and we had our own area so we didn’t bother other guests eating there. Highly recommend this place! Loved the halibut! Good beer and wine selection.

We reviewed the menu online to make sure there was something for everyone to eat, when we got there, they had a menu with very limited items, I would say 1/3 of the items. And of course none of the items we were looking forward to try, one of those items was sushi.
We requested a fillet mignon without the sauce, but was served WITH the sauce drenched over, if a guest is paying close to $40 for a fillet, you’d expect it to be served as requested.

Loved this place. Second time for lunch. Can't wait to come back for dinner at the bar. Friendly staff, although service was a bit slow and spotty (it was Father Day) . Great seafood items and many other tasty choices. Definitely will be back and recommend to my friends and business associates.

Good meal and service, but was surprised Passport cards are no longer accepted. Apparently, the change happened 2 weeks ago. We won't be going back unless Dining Passport benefits come back. We used to go weekly because of it.

Food was decent but nothing special. For out of town guests, this may be a nice place to take them if they've been to other places by the ocean. Waitstaff was friendly, so I would return for casual dining, but I would not recommend the place for friends who have more discriminating palate.

This place has a great view and their own parking. Although it took awhile for the waiter to take our food orders, the food came out quickly after. Food has been decent every visit. Local beers are overpriced. Still, I'll be back. Nice atmosphere not too far from home.

This week we decided to take an out-of-town visitor to Seasalt, largely because the view of the lagoon is so good. We were so happy with the food and service that we will make it a point to go back regularly. It really is a neighborhood gem.

We've made Mother's Day brunch at Sea Salt a tradition over the past several years, and plan on continuing the tradition for many more. Service is always friendly and attentive, and the menu selection is just right. Everything is always delicious, from appetizers to main courses and to desserts. Everyone in my family loves this place, especially my wife, and that's why we dine here on Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Brunch was wonderful. The shrimp poblano omelette was delicious and had plenty of (jumbo) shrimp. We enjoyed the classic benedict too. The service was excellent. The food and the view of the lagoon & Torrey pines was beautiful. We can't wait to come back and bring our friends.

Unfortunately our experience was not worth its salt. The positives: my ten-year old daughter enjoyed her Penne and Alfredo, and a bowl of clam chowder. I tried them both. The chowder wa a bit thin but had good flavor, the Penne was good. On the other hand, my wife and I had the Sea Salt salad, crab cakes and glazed salmon. The salad was pedestrian. The crab cakes were not to our liking, as they had no chunks of crab, only a mashed-up mix of whatever that looked like oatmeal, with consistency to match. The salmon came to the table almost raw. We returned and asked for it to be cooked medium temperature. After torturing the piece of fish to the point of self-immolation it was brought back to us. Dry, no discernible glaze of any kind and accompanied by unseasoned potatoes and spinach. The spinach was done properly. We won't be back.

It was a beautiful gathering please post hike for breakfast or lunch. My omelette was a little overdone. Our server was not unfriendly but... Perhaps a little rushed. I would return but with the expectation that if I wanted the most delicious breakfast in the world this is not where I would go. The view makes up for everything.

First of all when we arrived the front door was locked so we had to walk around the back to enter. There were only a couple of tables seated when we arrived but it still took some time before we were greeted. We ordered apps and cocktails which came quickly. After we ordered a second cocktail, we were never asked again if we wanted to order a main course. Our server disappeared.

We have been here several times for the view. The food is OK and the service is always questionable. This could be a really great place is they stuck to seafood and offered more items like oysters and chilled seafoods. We can get tacos anywhere.

She did immediately upon entering however no waiter or waitress came to our table until we ask for someone. When they finally showed up they asked us if we are ready to order no apologies. Mia was over didn't ask us if we wanted desert just sent us the check. Food was good but it was not a warm place.

We ordered the Roman artichokes as an appetizer and they were absolutely delicious. My mom and I ordered crab ravioli with lobster sauce. They were home made and very tasty. The sauce was definitely the real deal, with a rich lobster taste. My brother ordered steak with Gorgonzola, and my sister-in-law ordered scallops with risotto. The scallops were huge and perfectly cooked. My sister-in-law is a sommelier, and she commented that she was impressed with the wine list and the prices were very reasonable. This is a super value. We would have paid at least $50 or more at other restaurants in the area. The waiter was extremely nice. All in all, all four of us really enjoyed our food and the evening together.

Overall it was a lovely evening, the food was delicious, our waiter was attentive, however, the downside was the fact that I had let them know this was a birthday celebration and there was no recognition of that fact. I kept waiting for a piece of cake, or some sort of dessert to be brought out, to no avail. After dinner we moved to the bar for a night cap and the customer service of the barman was non existent.....not what we expected after having such good service in the restaurant. Ah well, it won't put me off going back, I'll just put it down to he must have been feeling poorly! Great location with parking in the rear!

Wife & I went on Easter for Brunch/lunch. We had driven past for some time but never stopped. Busy, but service was excellent and friendly. No sense of rush - well staffed, well managed but still casual.
Seated at open front area with view of tidal area and ocean. Fresh air and nice warming sun.
Food was well prepared, very flavorful and hot. Crab Cakes, Seafood Benedict and Spaghetti with Clams were top notch with a fine place setting. ....and one of the best Bloody Mary's ...ever.
