    I ordered the Moules Frites and ended up not eating half of the plate after finding several small rocks. I thought I might end with a broken tooth. Frites were soggy. Service was average.

    Had an okay experience here, but I think it could have been a lot better had we been seated elsewhere and ordered a little differently. Mostly we were disappointed by where they sat us; the outdoor seating and downstairs section was lively and inviting, but we were put upstairs in a very quiet room practically by ourselves. That aside, some of the food was incredible (the octopus was a standout!) and some of it was a little disappointing ($19 for mostly avocado and three little bites of torched salmon...). I'd like to think I'd come back and try this place again and it would be a knock-out experience - the menu is modern & creative and the downstairs area seems like it has good ambience. So I'd recommend you sit outside and order that octopus and you'll probably have a nice time!

    I cannot say enough about the food and service. We had the fresh caught raw scallops which were amazing. I had the Rock Crab Carbonara and the wife had the Grilled Halibut. Both were outstanding dishes. The AC went out the evening we went but the kitchen stuck it out to make sure everybody with a reservation was able to eat on their wonderful patio. Would highly recommend.

    We arrived a bit early for our reservation so we were invited to wait in the bar. Our table was so comfortable and the atmosphere was so nice we asked if we could have dinner there. Our server was awesome and friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu. We ordered 10 oysters that were fresh and delicious. The fresh uni was so creamy and the homemade ponzu sauce kicked it up and enhanced all the flavors. We also had the scallops ceviche and it was outstanding and we would highly recommend it. The hamachi was bright and citrusy, also delicious. My husband ordered the halibut with a perfect crust served over spring greens and I had the lobster special with ginger sauce. OMG, we were both so pleased with our entrees, and the presentation was bright and colorful, such a delightful experience. We paired it with a rose Sangiovese, recommended by our server. Hands down, the Saltie Girl was our best dining experience in our 4 days in Boston. We look forward to returning and we will send our friends and family too.

    Sit outside! The TV downstairs is too loud and upstairs was really hot. We waited and had a lovely table outside. Service was excellent. Order the bread! Unbelievable. Salad was good. We split a lobster with crab stuffing for $99. Lots of stuffing but enough lobster. The clam chowder comes in a huge bowl and was good of too much. Fun place.

    even though we had a reservation we were seated at the bar. it was hard not to be envious of the outdoor diners, whose ambiance appeared to be much more pleasant than our loud and distracting (tv, bar, music) situation. that said, the food was good, server was kind, and we wound up enjoying the less busy environment.

    I was so looking forward to this restaurant; it had so much hype. The best thing about it was my dri;k! We had 6 oysters, 6 clams, a pasta dish and calamari and fries and 2 glasses of wine — the bill with tip was $187.00. It’s not bad it’s just not great. I wouldn’t return. Nor would I recommend SG. And I’m not just talking about the expense.

    We've eaten here more times then I can count. I absolutely love this spot. Ive even stood in line to get a spot here prior to the expansion. However yesterday we got our favorite warm overpriced lobster roll and it was not anything close to the lobster roll of years, weeks or days past. It wasnt as lobster bountiful, I had shell pieces in mine and it just seemed as if it was prepared differently - for those reading, the Saltie LR is poached with a lemon butter foam this flavor is why i pay the extra $$$ here. What was served yesterday I could have gotten at any Boston restaurant. With their expansion to the new space I hope this is temporary and the quality of their unique wonderful food doesn't fall victim.

    Visiting from Washington State. My wife found Saltie Girl while researching places to eat in Boston. The food was fantastic. Better yet, the service provided by Lindsey was exceptional. The bright pink interior and tin chairs don’t really match the quality of food and service.

    Came for the excellent lobster rolls but was blown away by the poor value--I knew the lobster rolls were going to be $38 each and that was fine, but we were seated in a basement area with poor AC and scuffed up walls and no other decor really. I think the restaurant had expanded since I was there last and it seemed a bit unfinished. We ordered a warm crab roll appetizer to go with the lobster rolls and were blown away when the $28 appetizer was approximately two bites of crab wrapped in rice paper. The food was good but the app came out after the lobster rolls and was absurdly tiny. All told we were in and out in 45 minutes and the bill was $145. Would have expected a bit more ambiance for the price and would recommend they remove the crab app from the menu if that's what it needs to cost for it to make sense as it soured the experience.

    We were seated in a stiflingly hot room with only one other party in it, and the server began by asking us if we wanted to finish off with dessert-then nervously excused herself mentioning that she had several “spiels” and that was the wrong one. The table was dirty and hand not been cleaned before we sat down. Service continued to be rote, with everything that the server said sounding like a singsong pre-recording. We were told the air conditioning could not be adjusted. We asked to sit outside and they refused, saying we’d have to wait more than an hour. The whole time we were there, several tables outside remained unoccupied. It was a special occasion, so this experience seemed all the more insulting. The food was attractively presented and very tasty, but serving sizes were small for the price. Next time, if I wanted their food, I would just do takeout and skip the weird attitude and vibe of the place.

    The food came out all at different times, and no one knew which dish went to whom. Items were forgotten and other dishes served undercooked/raw (when they shouldn’t have been). While it may saline picky, for the price of the dishes, not having fresh pepper or even shakers, and instead offering packets of pepper was distasteful. Not to mention on a 90 degree day, not having on the AC was quite uncomfortable.

    Food was on point and well prepared. Service was friendly but both server and food deliverers were absent minded (e.g. had to ask a couple times for salt and again for hot sauce). Ate downstairs…room was void of any charm and character whereas the main dining rom is beautiful. Also disappointing given the price points. If it wasn’t for the delicious food, I would have complained.
