My wife chose this restaurant to celebrate her dad's birthday. Let me tell you why we were very disapointed.
Firstly you walk into the reception of a hotel (of which looks tired and shabby). Then we walked into the resteraunt, which is actually part of the hotel. The decor of the restaurant was also very tired. And I might add the location is nothing special either. No views. Not in a particularly exciting part of town.
To add to this very unappealing first impression, there was only two tables of people and it was deathly quiet (you could hear a pin drop). Now it was a Monday night, so maybe the restaurant has slightly more ambience on the weekends?
Ok to the food. As the title states, Seasalt are trying to be something they are not...Exquisite Fine Dining (and with a price to match). The presentation of the food was very nice and appealing, however we could tell that they did not use top quality ingredients and that the food was not prepared / cooked to bring out all the flavours and texutures that one would expect for $36+ mains and $24+ Entrees.
Last but not least, the service was poor to average. Not that the lovely French girls were rude or anything, but they were obviously inexperienced and made a few mistakes. Plus the service was slow. Again, not what one would expect when you are paying this sort of money.
So, in summary. I would suggest that Seasalt either do one of two things. 1) Renovate the tired looking restaurant, drastically improve the quality of food, and provide 1st class service or 2) Decrease your prices by at least half to match the average food, decor and service.
