    Always a wonderful experience. We like so many things that we usually order a bunch of appetizers rather than individual entrees, so we can all share in the wonderful tastes. Then, leave some room for desserts.

    One of the finest all around dining experiences in the DMV. Wait staff operate as a seamless team attending to every need, well paying paced and respectful. The entire layout of the venue provides a variety of dining settings for every mood. Highly recommend the Oysters Rockefeller and Bronzino main course.

    One of DC/Maryland local icons. Place for seafood, regional feel, away from the touristy area of DC. Local feel but also attractive for out of town special occasions visitors.

    My dining companion and I dined at Black Salt for her birthday. Devin was very helpful describing menu choices and giving us opinions on selections. He recommended that we speak with JJ the sommelier regarding the wine list. JJ helped us pick the perfect bottle of wine. The chefs at Black Salt are experts at preparing fish to the perfect temperature - in my case an Ora King Salmon prepared medium. The accompaniments were flavorful and complemented the fish selections. It you enjoy seafood, Black Salt has a wide selection and has stood the test of time in Washington DC. They were GREAT acknowledging my dining companions birthday as well!

    The food was great and so was the service. It was a little expensive but worth it. I loved the casual vibe .

    They did a wonderful job helping us celebrate our 36th anniversary. The food and service were top notch. The oyster selection was fantastic and we tried them all. Best crab cakes in dc!
