Visited Salt Kitchen & Bar for a second time for Restaurant week Portsmouth, NH. It was for a Friday Lunch and again not at all disappointed. The food was very, very good, we had Lobster Risotto for a starter, very creamy with a little arugula on top to add some zest. We also both had the Veal Picatta with garlic... More

We visited Salt on Sunday afternoon for the restaurant week lunch menu (3-course lunch for $16.95). I should have made reservations but I was not 100% I would be going. We arrived about 12pm (this is also the transition time when breakfast is ending and brunch is being served...very busy). Arrived to hostess stand at 12:10pm, we got sat about... More

We spent some time at the bar first - service was very infrequent as servers would cluster to chat. Nice menu selection. Brushetta was excellent with 3 different variations. Mushroom risotto was their best dish, large portion for an appetizer - easily shared or as an entree. The boar pasta was quite bland. Nice spot to eat, we had a... More

We arrived at beautiful Wentworth by the Sea on a rainy afternoon and ended up having a most delightful day at their restaurant Salt. The food is fresh and outstanding and the service is friendly and hospitable. Our afternoon server, Brittany L, made our afternoon so pleasant. Later that evening we enjoyed wine while sitting fireside. The breakfast buffet was... More

The menu is huge. There were literally only 2-3 things on the entire menu that didn't sound good to me. After much debating and strategy with my wife we had an amazing anniversary dinner with a wide variety of food from start to finish. Every course was better than the next and dessert was very good as well. Recently renovated... More

Terrific meal and experience at Salt. We were tired from a day to Maine, but thoroughly enjoyed the apps and entrees as well as the unique drinks from the bar. The fish was excellent and the dessert was a wonderful end.

Am staying at Wentworth by the Sea and came for dinner the first night. I was very impressed with the freshness and quality of ingredients and the care taken with preparation. Had the halibut, which was perfectly cooked and accompanied with fresh artichokes and fresh pasta. Coming back for dinner tonight!

Liked the salads and flatbreads. Disliked the slow and offhand service - until we were given a super waiter, who tried to make up for the bad one - which he did! Very busy place, even have to go on the wait list for weekend breakfast. Food other than above is nothing special and pricey. Wine list is limited and... More
