It’s not my first time at The Salt Room and I’ve always been impressed. This time, sadly not quite as much. People coming in after us were served far before us and really paid attention to. But hardly a word was spoken to us. Starter plates left on the table. Not brought the bill until 30 mins after we’d finished and after we had to ask. We weren’t even offered dessert menus. It’s a shame, but we will likely try again anyway! The pandemic certainly affects things, but as mentioned, other diners were getting the usual experience. I couldn’t help but wonder if it was because we are younger. I hate to leave ‘bad’ reviews but I hope the feedback is taken on board and next time is as brilliant as usual.

We have been to the salt room and recently went with friends for a small wedding. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Very attentive . Food is very good no matter what you order you won’t be disappointed. The desserts are a show stopper

Lovely food.but let down by poor service and seriously bad coffee! Had finished starter and asked twice for wine before it came. Surprised a high end restaurant had undrinkable coffee, meant we left on a low note .

WOW! Given the pandemic, and how things have changed, what an exceptional experience. The waitress knew her stuff, she was attentive, friendly, always on hand and knew her menu and products inside out. We will 100% be returning for the surfboard - but would highly recommend the Market Special and the Scallops starter!

Service was a little off-hand and perfunctory, but the food was excellent and the wine list , although small, was both very well-judged and very reasonably priced.

This being one of the more upmarket of dinner choices this is perfect if you love fish and a nice bottle of wine in a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Especially by the beach front on a summer's evening! This is always on our list when visiting Brighton.

Very pleasant. Disappointed in the sea view sharing plate because there wasn’t enough sea food to share . Was not enough to warrant the money.

We ate outside on a lovely sunny day. If you love fish this is the creme de la creme! Staff were very friendly and attentive. When the wrong cocktail was brought out the correct one was then delivered by the barman himself with a smile and full apology. We will definitely go back.
