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.

My husband and I had a lovely date night here on a snowy night last spring. This restaurant has lovely ambiance and the locally-sourced organic foods are delicious. Our server was wonderful as well, and we'll definitely be back!

I had an amazing dinner recently while trying the Salt for the first time. I had a rotisserie chicken meal that was incredible. The service was spectacular and the ambiance was very nice. They even have oak fired up in the back that lends to a very nice smell, especially on a cold Winter evening.

The first items brought to our table were onion rolls with black sea salt and butter and they were amazingly delicious. I ordered the evening special of the lamb shank ragu with garlic sauteed greens and the meal was outstanding. The grasshopper pie dessert was delicious. Our waiter provided excellent service and had good knowledge of the menu. I recommend... More

We visited for a Sunday night dinner - no wait but it got quite full soon after. The room is relatively small so I would definitely make reservations if your heart is set on eating here. They procure as much local foods as possible and have some nice selections. That being said, the menu is relatively limited with unique trendy... More

My daughter, who lives outside Boulder, made a reservation for the 4 of us. She told me it would be expensive, and it is, but it was an amazing meal. She also said they make a commitment to source locally, use humanely-raised meal and the freshest ingredients. Three of us started with wine, mine being the house white, Salt's Trap... More

Love the atmosphere of Salt and the surrounds ... gave a very "typical" Boulder experience where you overhear patrons discuss their ethical food. Burgers where to die for -- alas, something had to die -- that is the only drawback.

We visited salt on Christmas eve and loved it. The atmosphere was festive without being artifical or overwrought. The food was outstanding, from the lobster risotto to the lamb. The wine list was interesting and accessible. And the service was helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend
