Try the fish tacos. What Salt does right is keeps it simple, avoids the pretense, serves people really good, properly portioned food well, in a nice place that's nice to be in. Great big piece of wood bar is a great place to eat.

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.

Had a nice time here taking a friend for a birthday dinner, we had tried Grand Electric but the line-up starts 30 minutes before the place open, so off we went in search of some other place we hadn't tried. Ended up at Salt.
It's not clear that it's Tapas from the outside (unless we were too hungry to notice), it was pretty empty when we showed up at 7pm, never a good sign right? But it' worth a try, it has a nice atmosphere, and the staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was nice, no complaints, but when its a small plate and it costs between $12 and $18 it's hard not to put on a comparing head - like comparing it to other Tapa's - like Pintxo in Montreal and Cava at Yonge and St Clair. Not in their league - but those are amazing. So just slightly disappointed, but we did have a nice time.

We went to Salt in a group of four to experience Tapas and were positively surprised to find a good selection of very well prepared alternatives in a stylish setting. The Pata Negra was a particularly nice surprise, as was the super-tender and tasty octopus. Servings tend to be larger than in Spain, so it's a good idea not to go overboard in your initial order.
