It was great sitting outside by the water! The food was Good I had scallops the risotto was ok not Great. My husband had salmon that was delicious. We were sitting by a speaker so when the entertainment started it was loud. They did not rush you to leave. I would definitely go again.

Perfect place to enjoy the sunset and have a casual dinner with friends and family. Cocktails are little water down. Food is mediocre. We enjoyed the atmosphere but not the food.

Such a great dining experience! Our first time ever here and we loved everything. We came to celebrate Father’s Day and from when we walked in everything was great. The hostess greeted us with a smile, our server was awesome especially with giving us recommendations on drinks and food. The food was absolutely delicious.

I love this place and have been here a number of times so was somewhat disappointed overall with the service. It took an extremely long time to get our entree. Dishes were piled up on our table, we had to ask for napkins and condiments a number of times before we got anything and the ladies bathroom clearly needed servicing hours prior to me using it. It was clear that our waitress and wait staff were overworked and I will chalk this one up due to the inability to hire enough staff due to lingering effects of Covid 19. Patience is a must when eating out nowadays.
The steak and lobster were delicious as were the Seafood tower and the side dishes of creamed spinach and fingerling potatoes. This place is not cheap - 4 people with 4 alcoholic drinks total and no desert was over $400 before tip. Even though they are short staffed the service should be better for that price. There was no apology or offer to pay for drinks which actually had been done in the past but I do like Salt - I like the manager- the location and the food so will definitely give it another shot.

Salt is a lovely venue and the food is good, service is outstanding. The only complaint I have is the pricing. I took my husband here for Father's Day with my stepdaughters and the bill was $450.00! That's a little too high in my opinion.

Atmosphere is great at Salt. Steel pan beautiful light music in the air.. We ordered appetizers and entree but we only got the entree.. we didn’t realize because we were enjoying ourselves! The manager compensated us for the appetizers.. overall lovely experience!

We came for my husbands birthday. Had a great time - just way too windy to sit outside so we were inside and I was still cold ! Food was excellent as always. This is one of our favorite summer spots. Can’t wait to go again!

Food was great! Had the coconut shrimp as an appetizer delicious. Had the seafood risotto which was equally delicious . Others at our table had the ribs and steak dinners. Which they gave rave reviews. The pistachio ice cream finished off the meal perfectly.

We were pleasantly surprised on our first visit back to SALT since last summer. The view was outstanding, as usual, and the service was on point. Sarah, our server, was friendly and professional, and the food was good. We will definitely return.

Service was very slow. It took 20 min for someone to at least come to the table for a drink order. The place was crowded so understandable. The appetizer with the spinach artichoke dip for $25 was not great. Chips were stale and spinach leafy, crab was too fishy tasting. The entrees were sent out incorrectly. Steak undercooked and asked for a sub of mashed potatoes that never arrived. The waitress was great after that and notified management who did the right thing by us. Very nice gentleman. Still, I would find it hard to go back.

Very nice evening. The calamari was amazing. Food is a bit pricy but it was good and you definitely are paying for that waterfront view. I would return for sure.

Not a big fan for food….unfortunately the seafood risotto smelled like bad fish so I didn’t eat it….the Thai calamari had very little taste….thank goodness the limoncello flute was the best bite……maybe I made a bad choice should’ve tried something like a burger😕

For the first time since the food was not up to par. Had the twin lobster tails, very pricey and very tough surprised to find they broiled the tails rather than steamed, veggies and potatoes were average, will only get the pasta dishes in the future. The service however was excellent.

I’m not sure if it was an off day but I was not happy when I left. For 3 appetizers, two entrees (cheese burger & grilled chicken) and two frozen Margaritas our bill was $206. If the meal was good, I probably wouldn’t have noticed how much their prices went up. The coconut shrimp was either not cooked properly or bad, they charged $10 for a side of couscous, which would be fine if it didn’t taste exactly like Lipton Pasta Sides and it was over cooked. We’ve been there many times and know we’re going for the ambience but between their prices, poor food quality and gnats that are hovering all over your table and landing in your drinks I don’t think we’ll be back anytime soon. I didn’t say anything about my meal as I know the industry is hurting. I thought that when the busser and server came back to the table and saw the shrimp and couscous were hardly touched (and I wasn’t taking with me) they would have asked if everything was alright.

Restaurants need to keep in mind, not only are they hurting financially but so are their patrons.
