    My wife and I celebrated 28 years of marriage and wanted something special. For this reason, we chose to spend our money at SALT and we enjoyed it. With today’s spiking prices, it’s hard to find the best bang for your buck. Well, SALT treated us well. We walked away with an expensive meal, but we would do it again for this occasion. Great ambience, great service, and excellent food. We’ll be back. Thank you SALT!

    Fantastic dinner enjoyed with great friends. Cocktails of Old fashions and Paloma’s always hit the spot, delicious and refreshing. Crispy pork shanks with their own salsitas and the pan de campo perfectly satisfying not to mention the best fried chicken in town!

    Everything was great. Server didn’t recommend or suggest anything, more like an order taker. Service was still great, and she was very kind, food was amazing. Habanero honey was a little too spicy so we got regular as well. Drinks were on point, staff very friendly and having fun while working

    This is a fine dining restaurant that I couldn't visit often due to the price. However, for special occasions? YES. Brought the GF for birthday dinner. Everything was delicious. Curiously, I had to ask for olives for my martini. I thought that was standard. Excellent local restaurateurs. I LOVE supporting local business! Service was stellar, too.

    Service was slow, the shrimp we ordered were completely raw. Our server pouring wide drop wine all over the table. A little more training for servers will help. Wines that we order were not available. Wine temperature was warm. Other main dishes were food. But will try visiting again

    SALTResponded on June 15, 2022Thank you for sharing your experience with us Manuel. This is not typical of the style of service we strive to provide. Please accept my apologies. I would hate for this to be our last impression. Please allow us another opportunity to serve you and your guests. Sincerely, Ian Westby General Manager SALT New American Table

    This time around the food was not perfection as usually, the filets were overcooked and the sauce on them was a bit overpowering. Everything else was excellent, we were just a bit disappointed this time.

    The food was excellent! I had the pork shank, with some outstanding pan de campo. My wife had the duck and we shared a bowl of delicious brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts werent really on the menu as an additional side but the kitchen make an exception for us and it was so good! The bar also made a fantastic Old Fashion that definitely made the night more memorable

    Very hot inside the restaurant. Wine is not chilled to the appropriate cellar temperatures and is instead room temperature. Since the room is extremely hot, so was the wine. Otherwise the food, cocktails, and service were fantastic!!

    Our food was exceptional. We had the duck, filet and the rabbit hunter's curry stew. All of the dishes were so delicious.... not a bite was left behind. Great wine choices as well. Our waitress attended to all of our service needs and the manager stopped by to check in with us as well. Great informal friendly atmosphere, noise was a little loud, but not enough to disturb our meal. Definitely will be back without hesitation.
