Very fresh food

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.

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 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.

My wife and I are semi-foodies. We love good healthy fresh food. All of that is available in spades at Salt. The food is deliciously and very healthily prepared and beautifully presented. The Salt chicken is some of the best that I have had in the last year. And best of all the staff at Salt are very nice and... More

Went for brunch with family. One son ordered the blue corn beef tacos; filling excellent, taco, meh. Other son: quinoa burger which was first rate with excellent fries. I ordered the Prime Rib Eggs Benedict. My meal was delivered a full 5 minutes after the others. The eggs were seriously over cooked and hollandaise was non-existent. I sent it back.... More

Mad die the waitress was very helpful with the beer list and her dinner suggestions were spot on! Loved the Steak Frite with the steak cooked to a perfect medium rare. The surprise was how good the fries were and the desserts were great! We started with mussels and the overall experience was very good!

The restaurant is convenient to Pearl street and the food is good. I am not sure I get the "fresh sea salt" draw but the blue corn fish tacos were great. I wasn't blown away with the service or food but I would visit again for a quick lunch.
