Great Boulder Eatery & Bar

Went in for appetizers with another couple & everything was fantastic. Bartender was real easy going, had us try some killer tequila shots. Easy going place with great food, whats not to like.

5 people ordered 5 different dishes. 4 out of 5 thought the food was horrible. The issue is not that they advertise local food sources or healthy food, these guys just don't know how to prepare food, even basic dishes. Why they still have customers and haven't closed is a mystery. Meat was dry, over-cooked and had no taste. Risotto... More

Good atmosphere for dinner with friends and casual dining. A very unique menu for drinks or dinner. Jeremy was our server and he was very pleasant and helpful.

I was lucky to get a reservation for 6 without much advance notice (for lunch), and really enjoyed my meal and experience at Salt. The lamb burger was delectable, and the grilled chicken salad with cashew dressing was fresh and filling. A great choice for anyone in Boulder who's hungry on Pearl street.

My wife, son and I went there. We called,expecting a wait, but instead we were able to show up and get seated immediately. Everyone loved their food and the service was great. My wife went simple- she had a burger, but she was very happy with it. My son's salmon with quinoa was fantastic, as was my pork chop made... More

The service was very attentive. The place is cute. The tomato soup was phenomenal and so was the steak salad. The steak entree was also fantastic, delicious and soft and juicy.

The drinks were amazing... recommend Flower Sermon and Rhythm & Blues. The appetizer was a generous portion, quite delicious... Mussels Diavlo. And then we both had the Pastured Steak... a thing of beauty, fresh, exquisite flavor, melted in your mouth with a beautiful taste of chimichurri. I'm fighting my wife over her leftovers, sadly I finished mine. Can't wait to... More

Nice upscale bar with great drink menu. Food menu can be limiting. Our service was a bit slow (but not bad) and the vegetarian main I ordered was bland. They do a great job of sourcing locally and the space is trendy and attractive. Would try again for drinks and light apps

Wonderful flavors and combinations. Love the atmosphere and the service. One of the best restaurants in Boulder, which is saying a lot because Boulder has more than its share of great restaurants.
