Amazing service and great food. Value is very good for the food, but the service was over the top. The patio did get a little loud with two large parties, but didn't take too much away from our experience.

A nice selection of tasty menu items, efficient and pleasant service, and beautiful patio seating where we watched the sun go down over the lagoon and ocean.

Great food but the deck on a breezy evening took away from the experience, even with the wind and sun shades down.

Great place for lunch during COVID. At 11:30a, it was empty, by 1p it was socially-distanced but more populated. I would recommend if you need a place to eat for a special occasion during the pandemic.

I lived in Italy for a year and often had my favorite dish linguini con vongole (clams). This entre at Seasalt was by far one of the best I have ever had. Also the tropical salad was light and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The best birthday dinner experience ever. Especially considering it was Election night. Staff was so attentive to our needs, making meal and cocktail recommendations. Food was fantastic! Also a special birthday dessert and limoncello liqueur - fabulous ❤️

This was our first time to see salt and we were very impressed. We had a choice of tables everyone was socially distanced.. Stefano, our server, was very attentive and provided excellent service. The food was delicious! We will definitely return.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at SeaSalt. The kind and personable staff (Stefano) complimented the delicious food, enhanced by the tranquil sunset views of Del Mar and Torrey Pines. We started with the Beef Carpaccio which was a delicate balance of flavors that enhanced the tender strips of beef. For our entrees, my husband had the Black Ink Pasta with calamari, which was cooked perfectly. I had the Sesame Seared Ahi with Thai sauce and mashed potatoes, the Ahi steak was divine in flavor and mouth feel. We have already recommended this place to our family and we look forward to going back in the future.

This is our favorite restaurant: The service is attentive without being intrusive; the food is always delicious and beautifully presented; and the wine list includes selections to fit almost any budget. (We particularly liked the pinot noir from Oregon, Eulia. Very smooth and quite reasonably priced. We’re glad that our son came with us so that my wife and I could enjoy the whole bottle and then be chauffeured home!

Food is decent, but service if I could give no star I would. Not once anyone came up and asked if everything is good, if we would like anything else or even bring extra water. Brought check without asking if we would like any desert. Very unpleasant feeling for the place and prices to have such a terrible service.
