What a disappointment. The steak was perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, and perfectly meh. I think they pay to much attention to sustainably this, non GMO that, grass fed this, and forgot to make sure it was good. Way too tough. Hard to cut. In fact the menu tells you all about how awesomely raised their beef is, but never about... More

If you walk just a bit further to the northern part of the Pearl St Mall, Salt has some nice outdoor seating

We decided to have an anniversary dinner at Salt. I have taken out of town visitors to Salt in the past and my wife had been there for brunch so we thought we knew what we were getting. They didn’t know it was our anniversary but it’s been a lot of years married and, based on past experience, we were... More

At the suggestions of several CU students we ate at Salt Also saw it on the food network. Great vibe and wonderful people work there I just was expecting the food to be a bit milder; not to say it was bad because it was good - just had some zip.

So sometimes it takes twice to go to a place to and appreciate. My first visit to Salt was several years ago with a friend - we had beers and burgers. Very good but many places have good burgers. However, last night my nephew and I bopped to Salt just after 6pm - Yay -no crowd yet! We were immediately... More

Service was terrific. Small and comfy outside seating. Three of us had three different entrees...all so fresh and Delish! Oh my. Good craft beers and wine selection. Definitely a do-over!! When I saw the sign (see below) on the door, I knew I was in a great eating establishment... Good for my body!

The menu at Salt is varied and features fresh, local produce. Their bar has a really interesting variety of speciality drinks and offers a menu of options so one can almost mix their own cocktail. The service is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. It's a wonderful place to meet for lunch or dinner!

A must eat in Boulder. We always sit at the back counter that faces the open kitchen and cooks. Fantastic roasted chicken cooked in the open wood burning oven. We share an entree and a salad or starter. Service can be inconsistent. So be patient or don't visit.

Many of us in our party decided to dine here for dinner. The staff was able to accommodate us right away and made sure we were comfortable. Extremely accommodating and courteous servers made our dining experience ever so great. Atmosphere is very calm and comfy. Wide variety of selections on the menu. The food, really, really good. Great stop!
