Excellent Food and Service

My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner at Salt. I had the halibut which was the best I ever had. My wife loved the surf and turf. We started with the oven baked oysters - very nice. Great service and a beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend!

We were disappointed, expecting a much better dining experience. My wife had the mussels and a Salt salad, both of which were ok but nothing memorable. I had the Catalan stew which was edible but not very good either. One tiny 1/2lobster, dried out, 2 mussels which had only shells, 2 clams which were ok and some monkfish which was... More

The local buzz was Salt was replacing the existing restaurant at the Wentworth hotel and there was much anticipation. We really don't see much difference in the two. Some prices are high for the value. The desserts are way to gourmet - sticking with traditional New England fare is much wiser in this area. We had a gift certificate to... More

Hello capefans, It is always nice to hear from guests who have visited both spaces. Our intent with the dining room renovations was to create a more open concept space.This was accomplished by opening up the lounge area which flows into the dining room. This allows for more seating and dining options. Thank you for your menu suggestions, I will... More

We too wanted to treat ourselves for our Anniversary. Renovations to the Hotel had not begun when we were married, so it was nice to see a wedding party busy having photos taken while we were there.

For our anniversary we decided to treat ourselves to something swankier than our favorite downtown Portsmouth, NH haunts. This is always a gamble because no matter how fancy a place is supposed to be, it might not be YOUR kind of place.

Recently had lunch at Salt. Ordered one of their home made pasta dishes in a half portion. It was pasta with a beef ragu. Pasta was the star of this dish - delish as they make it at Salt - but there was hardly any pasta in the bowl - lots of ragu - but really not enough pasta to... More

My husband and I came to Wentworth by the Sea for our anniversary. After a day in the sun, we decided to just have dinner at the hotel restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious and the staff (Michelle, Ryan and Kelly) were very helpful. We would highly recommend Salt!
