Dropped in for a quick dinner and were able to get a great table outside, near the heater as it was a little cool, with a brilliant view of the marina. Sadly they couldn’t provide my husband with oysters on that occasion, his scallop starter...was good. My clam chowder was VERY GOOD! Followed by Halibut and Branzino, both good. Staff were all very friendly and made us feel at home.More

Terrance and Ali were extremely friendly. As we arrived we were welcomed. They ensure we knew where we were going and answered any questions we had.

We had a group of friends that hadn't seen each other in a long while so made reservations to have a special outdoor lunch together. The beautiful day provided the perfect backdrop for our meal and a kind waiter brought us a big umbrella to...shade our table. We were left alone to eat and catch up, which we appreciated, and our waitress (sadly, I didn't get her name but she was wonderful) took good care of us. To my surprise, my meal was less than what I expected. I ordered a chicken sandwich with a salad and had to peel off the outer edges because they were way overcooked and not chewable. The middle was just ok and I made a meal of that inside the bun. The salad was ok. For the four of us, our meal was over $100. Ok, I'll say that the location and the outside atmosphere made it worth quite a bit, but it was soured by the lack of attention to food quality. Wouldn't go back.More

I visited SALT Bar and Restaurant and had a terrific experience watching the California sunset. I especially appreciated the valet service, specifically Jason, AuJenee and Nick. Thank you!

Invited friends for dinner. Service was friendly but food and service were not equivalent to price. Food was mediocre. Atmosphere not great. Inside was a small room with white walls and wood chairs, no ambience…perhaps a temporary room as they are undergoing construction. Horrible acoustics,...just really loud. We were told they had a limited bar menu, but after ordering were told there was only wine and beer available. The appetizer we ordered was also unavailable. Food was not great and way overpriced. Much better restaurants than this in the area. Disappointed.More

It felt like a ‘has been’ hotel. Obviously an old institution, but feels like an old hotel. Ambiance was nothing special, but they had many heat lamps outside, which was wonderful. Inside, it was sparsely furnished and felt old. Terrible acoustics inside. Service was very...friendly, but inexperienced and overwhelmed. A Friday night. The food was surprisingly good—not great, but good. We had no complaints about the food. With nicer ambiance and more training of service staff, this could be a much higher rated restaurant.More

Amazing food at the restaurant and our server was so so sweet and nice. Get the Brussel sprouts and muscles. Nick and Ali at the valet were great and very friendly.

My word it has been a long time since I have had a Sunday dinner as good as that. The team here and Joanne the owner are wonderful, the food is just fab. I can’t wait for my next visit and a perfect location! Slightly...surprised at the bill being so reasonable for such excellent quality!!!!More

The food had no flavor (3 meals) and, to add insult to injury, we were rushed out. It was an overpriced, disappointing experience.

Great breakfast. The view is amazing and the staff is terrific. We also had dinner one night made out of side dishes… the muscles were wonderful and it was a good Caesar salad. It is the people who make this place tick. Our waiter (darn...I wish I remembered his name it be an with a B) came over to say good morning even if we were not in his area. They are truly nice people. The first day we’re arrived we sat out side while our room was prepared. The bartender was slow as molasses and did not make a good drink. I was surprised as my experience before had been so positive. We did not see her for the rest of the stay and the service went back to perfect. This is a great place for a view!!More

Our first impression of the hotel the restaurant was a bit odd. The exterior is not welcoming and really doesn’t match the interior. Don’t let the outside fool you though, the inside of the hotel is smartly decorated with very cool vibes. The restaurant in...the back was “full of reservations” when we arrived, but there were about 8 people inside. We sat outside for breakfast and our coffee took awhile and eventually arrived in to-go cups — likely a COVID mitigation. The service was quite slow and we had to walk up to the bar to put our order in. We ordered the queso starter, salmon Benedict, chilaquiles, French omelette, and breakfast burrito. Everything was good, not great, other than the queso. The queso was honestly delicious! We likely won’t be coming back any time soon just because of the combination of the food and service, but considering they’re rebounding from COVID, I’m sure they will work out some of the kinks we experienced!More

The bartenders, Montreal, Henry and Chris went out of their way to make our time with an out of town friend’s visit really fun and enjoyable. It was the first time, in a very long time to be at a bar and have such great...service, extra kindness and personable conversation. Will definitely be back and recommend the bar and hotel to out of town guests. Thank you guys! Cheers! Inger, Molly and AngieMore
