My family and I had Christmas Eve dinner here. The meal was simply excellent. WE began with a large meat and cheese board which was superb. Then we indulged in the tenderloin, short ribs and pork chops (a carnivore group). Simply delicious. Service was attentive, the atmosphere in the cellar was fantastic. Good vibes all around. It was not inexpensive... More

We'd read many OK reviews and some not so great reviews of this place. But we found ourselves in Boulder nearby and liked the concept of local produced fresh food. As local producers of natural free range raised Lamb, we always keep our eye out for restaurants serving natural Lamb. Walking past their signboard, they featured a Lamb Burger. Seeing... More

Friendly staff and professional service on a very busy night. Food was tasty and well prepared. The salted caramel tart was my favorite! We've never been disappointed here.

Went for an adult only family dinner. Food was good but prices tend to be on the high side. I had the filet, most of the others had the Alaska Salmon Special. Service was good.

I had a great dinner here. I have celiac disease and need gluten-free food, and the staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I had a delicious burger on a house-made gluten-free bun. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very cozy and not loud, and they have an excellent drinks menu.

Quality of food can vary depending upon time of day and size of party. Venue is a great location with a good menu. Great for business dinners.

This place is small, on the corner. It did take a while to find a parking since it is in Boulder and in an area heavily populated with shopping and dining. When we arrived the Hostess was very nice, a lot of personality, she seated us right away even though the rest of our party had not arrived yet, the... More

We shared a cheese plate, which was delicious. Our dinners were also delicious, made with fresh, organic ingredients. I had a pasta special with seafood in it. I will definitely eat here again when I'm in the Boulder area.

Great bartenders. Locally sourced ingredients. Friendly. We both enjoyed the food and experience. Probably the best meal on the mall. Go again? Yes!

Since my husband and I were on our own for Thanksgiving this year again, we decided to repeat last year's visit to Salt. We made a reservation for early afternoon and were a little put out that they had no record of it, but the hostess handled the situation well and seated us with hardly any delay. They do a... More
