    We went for a dinner on Sunday night when they have bingo. At same time there was Dine Around Halifax menu, where on default they easily accomodatted my partners allergy to gluten, dairy and eggs. He got delicious Brussles sprouts, salmon and sorbet for desert. We had an amazing date night. Will go again, for sure!

    The atmosphere and serving staff are phenomenal. What I ordered was good. Food portions are large. Price was good. What I ordered what the Diner Around promotion. I thought the salmon would be raw but it was cooked so the sushi style bowl with cooked salmon was odd for me. But others may enjoy it!

    Mostly a very good experience. Quite noisy when we first arrived 1:00 pm on a Friday, but not long before some tables left and the noise level diminished. We had the set menu for ‘Dine Around’ - all the food was excellent except for the Jerk Salmon salad. The salmon was dry and overcooked with too much dressing and not much quinoa. However, they didn’t charge that person for the glass of wine they had ordered.

    I've been here a few times now but this last experience wasn't great. We had a reservation for noon for four people. We were seated and then never saw another employee for 30 minutes. When another table was seated next to us we then asked that server if someone could take our order. The server took our order and our food came shortly after. However, we never saw that server again. We had to ask another employee if we could get our bills since were were on a time limit. The food and atmosphere were good, however we were very disappointed in the lack of service. I would not want to go back for lunch during the work week.

    My first time to Salt + Ash but definitely not my last! Food was incredible, our server was lovely and it is a beautiful restaurant. The noise level was so high that we could hardly hear each other though. It’s a very (beautiful) open space but lacks any noise-dampening decor. That will not deter me from returning though!!

    Casual but elegant, nice scenic view of the harbour. Our server was never far away and was very congenial and helpful as we made our food and beverage choices. We were impressed with how quickly the food arrived after ordering and it was still hot. The food was a real adventure; we were impressed with how some comfort food staples (I had the boiled brisket and sorbet) were elevated to something special. We're going back to try the rest of the menu.

    Overall, we were both quite happy with our meals. Beautiful upbeat ambiance that will most likely appeal to a slighly younger crowd (20s to 40s.) Phenomenal value and quality. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Will definitely be returning!

An, on the house celebratory wine put the restaurant over the top for being accommodating and absolutely amazing for being part of this special day. Kudos to the wonderful staff, gorgeous atmosphere and wonderful food. Thank you all so so much for making our day memorable ♥

    The only thing I didn't enjoy was the hollandaise sauce, which was removed from my bill. Not sure if I was given mayo in error, but thats what it tasted like. The Dutch baby and taters were delicious. Server was great and helpful with the menu.

    I've already sent a review to the restaurant directly, so I won't repeat myself. But the food was just awful last night, as it was last time I went to Salt and Ash. I won't be going back, and I'm shocked at the low quality of both the meals and the (really terrible) drink.

    I requested a nice table for the four of us. We were sat by a server station, in the middle of the restaurant. At a silly little round table. Probably the worst seat in the house. My husband had steak and it was the smallest driest piece of steak we have ever ordered at a resturant. The French fries were terrible and over cooked. My cod was blackened with no flavor. Just so dry. We were very disappointed. The only thing we enjoyed was the corn bread. I am only give it this many stars as the services was good. Where we were seated was awful and the food was awful. We won't return

    We had a lovely dining experience: the ambience was great, the decor beautiful, our server delightful, and the vibe upbeat yet chill. The food was fresh but a tad bland in spots, with a limited menu. That said, I would still recommend this spot for it's lovely environment; I just wouldn't put it number one on my elevated food choice list.

    Overall, the atmosphere and service were good but the good was just a miss. We all did the Dine Around menu. The Brussel sprouts were undercooked and lacked flavor. The salmon bowl was honestly pretty bland. And the Smore pudding was decent, just the crunchy bits turned off some of our party.
