The daughter of a friend used Saltwater for a wedding reception. The shrimp, canape's and hors d'ourves were the best I have ever eaten. The wait staff handled the crowd with aplomb and the drinks were found abundant by all.

If you love seafood you will love Saltwater! Lovely restaurant with a great view over the water. Scallops were out of this world.

Food was great, service was impeccable, would highly recommend it. Caesar salad was a bit spicy, but good. Try the salt water ice cream for desert.

I don't review and give back enough - but do when I can. We come to MV every year - this has been a new favorite for a few of them now and they continue to out do themselves. We had the lobster bisque which was honestly the best anywhere I've ever had - obviously made from scratch - confirmed... More

The only reason this isn't 5 stars is because of the expense/value proposition. The food was delicious. Started with the arugula salad, which was actually enough for 2 people. Both of our entrees (scallops and swordfish) were delicious. The portions were satisfying, but nothing left over to take home. The desert we ordered, Sea Salt Ice Cream, was quite good.... More

This is an upscale restaurant for the island - a little expensive but worth every penny. The service is attentive and the chef has prepared a very creative menu. On our last visit several at our table ordered the salmon and thought it was wonderful. Others ordered the scallops and they were fabulous. The atmosphere is clean, modern with a... More

With the addition of DeSilva, formerly fromLambert's Cove, now in the kitchen, this may now be the best all-around restaurant on the island. The food is now consistently well prepared. The seasonings are correct. The preparations are creative and diverse. Managment is thoughtful and accomodating. And service is increasingly refined. With one of the only, if not the only, water...

We were looking forward to another dinner here as last year we had a fantastic lunch and dinner here. We managed to sneak in for dinner on Saturday night. I ordered Swordfish with Couscous and roasted vegetables. My husband ordered the NY strip steak. Our appetizers were Sweetwater Farm Oysters and mine an Arugula Salad. Both were good. My husband's...

loved the food... if you are looking for an excellent restaurant walking distance from Downtown (We stayed at the 1720 House which was very close by) this restaurant is soooo good.
