Salt is overhyped, under staffed, over priced, poorly executed small,nay miniscule dishes of quite ordinary food pretending to be tapas, to justify the high price for small bites. The half teaspon of olive tapenade with some corn crackers offered for 5 people at our table as the amuse bouche did not amuse. Their Tuesday taco night gives tacos a bad name. Tasteless shredded lamb with a dollop of sour cream, generously battered but skinny fingers of grouper, and teaspoons of pulled pork all in plain corn tacos, don't make a tacqueria. Spicy calamari are neither grilled nor fried, but more like boiled with chick peas and some mention of chorizo which is MIA. All the portions are "tapas" sized meaning one or two bites, and all of these in a charming setting, but taking an hour and half to come out of the kitchen, with promises every fifteen minutes that the food is on its way. We entertain ourselves watching peoples faces and their looks of incedulity as they see the size of the portions put in front of them. We all left hungry, tired and cranky. If the food is amazing you can tolerate poor service, and if the service is amazing, you can handle ordinary food, but skimpy portions of ordinary food combined with really poor service is not a formula for success, I don't care how much wine you drink. Save your money and even more, save your time and head down Ossington, where you will find other venues.
