Very attentive staff. Great social distancing measures in place.
Food amazing. Went on a Sunday lunch time and had the steak tartare, seafood platter for two and a chocolate bar for desert.
Slightly limited menu and I was disappointed that the ‘Taste of the Pier’ desert was not available as I have been wanting to come to this restaurant for this.
Despite that, great all round experience and would highly recommend

Service was good but very little social distancing from staff and no masks at all which was disconcerting in these COVID-19 times. Other restaurants did brief diners and were careful. In normal circumstances I’d say great but unlikely to go back because of this till after the emergency has passed.

The food and drink was superb.

Our first meal out since lockdown. Simply superb, well organised to make us feel safe - delicious food and great and attentive service. Perhaps a bit too much to drink but that shows we were having a fun time! Many thanks - we will be back

Amazing location, brilliant food (really!). A bit noisy with the seafront traffic, and the waiting staff are getting used to the COVID procedures which is understandable! It’s a challenging time. But overall, A great experience!

The food can not be faltered but it was freezing cold in there and unfortunately the place was dirty. Not the experience I expected for the money.

No better place to escape lockdown! Friendly service, great ambiance, busy enough for a good buzz with great food and wine, assisted by a couple of vodkas. Again highly recommended!

Went for a meal with my husband and toddler and we were so impressed. The staff made us feel safe and really welcome. Very impressed with their health and safety. The food was excellent as ever. My husband LOVED the turbot special. I had the mackerel nduja and lemon sole which were both very good.

We went to The Salt Room for my birthday. It was our first time in Brighton and we heared about the restaurant on some reviews. My boyfriend is vegetarian so the choice of the restaurant was taken to satisfy me especially, but he was able to have a vegetarian dinner as well and he was very happy because his dishes were as tasty as mine.
My monkfish was amazing and the dessert as well and I was definitely surprised by the portion of the snack, not small at all and easily digestible.
The waitress was very kind and careful about the new safety rules.
Overall a great experience and we definitely come back here!

The food and wine were both excellent. Holly was our server and she was outstanding. She was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. We were celebrating a birthday and your birthday truffle was a very thoughtful touch. A great evening in exceptional circumstances.

I always usually have the surfboard for the awesome flavour and amount you share.

This time you charged £5 more and gave power quality and almost half less.

Cray fish is tastless amd that was what took up most of the plate. The plate had a few prawns and just a poor selection. It was barely enough for one not 2 people.to share.

I will definitely not. Order that again and may even consider not coming again as that's what I love to eat.

Shame really

We went for our first dinner after the lockdown. It is in a very nice location on the side of the Metropole Hotel with seafront views. The menu was limited but original and with choices for vegetarian, meat eaters or fish eaters. We had minkfish chheks and ventresca as a starter, and monkfish un chorizo sauce and tarbot for main. All delicious, tasty and with an original twist. Size of the portions about right. The waiters were nearby and dealt with requests very quickly. The wine list is ample, but a bit pricey. Service was friendly and eficient. There was enough distance between tables.

The shellfish platter used to be amazing but now you get the following each: 3 langoustines, 1 oyster, half a squid and lots of steamed mussels (bland), plus a share of fries and a small salad. That costs £60 for 2 people.
