Yum

Serving healthy, local food with enough choices to satisfy vegetarians, Salt provided us a fine dinner that made us happy. Beet salad, risotto and mushroom ragu. Service was good, and the bottle of wine didn't hurt. Overall, very good food, and quite good prices, too!

SALT may be my favorite restaurant in Boulder. The service was excellent and very fast. The bartender made a custom cocktail based on naming a few of my favorites - which was one of the best I've had. The charcuterie, cheese and the gnocchi were excellent as well. All around, it was a great experience.

My out-of-town foodie friend and I were looking for a nice place to meet for dinner. Based on high reviews, we chose Salt. The drink menu was unique because you can pick your liquor, a house-made (I believe) syrup (like strawberry/basil and fig) and a drink style (fizzy, cocktail, hot toddy). The waitress helped us come up with creations and... More

I went here for lunch with 2 colleagues, the service is slow, we had an hour for lunch and we ended up rushing the end of our meal even though we told them we were in a hurry. There is a lovely atmosphere in this restaurant and the style of the building adds to the ambiance. We went here because... More

Salt remains one of our favorite restaurants in Boulder. Great Sunday brunch as well as the weekday lunch menu. I have never had dinner here; but am certain it is of the same level.

Menu choices were limited, service was spotty and food just okay. One of our meals was undercooked. Not the best place we ate while in Boulder.

Bradford Heap bought Tom's Tavern at Walnut on the Pearl Street Mall. He has transformed the place into our favorite place to eat in Boulder. Bradford has been a pioneer in the "farm to table" movement and his food is always fresh, beautiful and delicious. We havE eaten at Salt dozens of times and have never been disappointed.

This great menu that makes it difficult to choose only one entree. It is evident the chefs take a lot of pride in their dishes. It is always a pleasure to dine there. It is always on the list of dinning choices when we have out of town guests.
