A little gem off the beaten path in Montpelier, we felt like we were in rural France. The food was fabulous, the service excellent and the ambience of this tiny cafe is homey.

What a great experience ! Love the quaintness and cozy style of this wonderful establishment. The owner takes pride in everything she does to provide an excellent restaurant experience. I love the menu and having the opportunity to taste items fresh from the farm. We each selected a different meal, so we would be able to sample a variety available. The food was very good and all three of us were very happy we made the choice to visit "Salt". Service was friendly with a smile and remember its a BYOB restaurant. I recommend "Salt".

First of all I wish Trip Advisor would give another option between "Very Good" and "Average".
My Husband and I went last week and had mixed feelings.
We liked the friendly service and the fact that they do BYOB and therefore could splurge a little more on a nice bootle of wine. We checked the menu before to find something to go with the food we were going to order. Unfortunately they were out of the tartare appetizer and the scallops. A little odd because it was 6:00 pm on a Tuesday night.
Hubby choose the heirloom tomato salad consisting of about 5 cut cherry tomatoes and a little cheese for $9.00. For me the lettuce, radish, fried chickpeas for $8,00. It was not bad but we think very overpriced for what we got.
After that it got a lot better. The seared chicken with wild-mushroom confit was excellent and the house made potato gnocchi with smoked-tomato sauce, eggplant and chard was just wonderful.
Not sure if we rush back, but if we do I would again check the menu online and maybe confirm that they have my preferences.
The "Hunger Mountain Coop" on the street behind the building has a very good wine and beer selection to pick from and bring with you.

This small gem of a restaurant is in the midddle of a residential area , its easy to mistake it for a house. The restaurant is tiny and the menu changes often. We were there on a Sunday night and were the only people inside , there were a couple more patrons on the patio . The service was friendly and attentive and we had a full view of the kitchen and the chef at work. While the menu is limited, its' creative and unusual with something to interest everyone. Food is very good and the atmosphere is cosy and intimate. Remember this is a BYOB restaurant and , wqhile they do soffer water , you'll have to bring any other beverages yourself. Dont miss tis one if your in Montpelier !

Without a sign (which had not yet been replaced since falling off during a snowstorm), you would be right to mistaken this establishment as someone's residence. The interior, including the (open) kitchen, is tiny. This place is owned by a young woman who also owns a farm. Service was very friendly but not intrusive. The menu was small but innovative, and was written on a black board. Unfortunately, the main chef was on vacation the night that we visited. This may have affected the quality of the food. Our pork dish, for example, was definitely overcooked. This place definitely has great potential, but its small operation may contribute to the inconsistency.
