“Mmmm GOOD!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Saltlicious! You won't be disappointed. For a nice light interactive meal, sit at the chef's table. Watch as the chef's move quickly but with such gentleness as they prepare gourmet meals. The wait staff are attentive, but give you enough privacy to enjoy your meal. I highly recommend reservations as they only have 16 tables. The appetizers. entrees, desserts & cocktails won't disappoint! Looking forward to going back.

“Amazing cocktails and tapas-style plates”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Atmosphere here transports you to a chic urban experience! Loved the margaritas with fresh local grapefruit juice and even grapefruit salt! Loved all the tapas style small plates we ordered... Sriracha shrimp, padrino peppers... it was all great!

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I was staying at the hotel across the street and walked over for dinner with a co-worker. It was early so they weren't very crowded and the service was fine. We ordered a couple of small plates and a couple of entrees. I especially liked the scallops, heirloom tomatoes and the tempura. I was not as thrilled with the squash ravioli, which I have had at other restaurants and liked. This was on the heavy side and seemed over-spiced to me I ate some of it but my co-worker didn't eat it at all.

As the name indicates, there is a lot of salt around. They salted the tempura and there were three types of salt on the table. Lemon salt, smoked salt and one type that looked like little black pebbles for which I did not catch the name.

They also have a chefs table (actually it is seats at a bar around the cooks) but we were too tired to do that. If you choose to sit there (no reservations for that) you can sample things for free before you order. I like the idea and will try that sometime when I am not there for work. It would have saved me from the ravioli.
