For the price of the hotel and food associated it was disappointing. Would not recommend for fine dining.

Veal chop was excellent , scallops were very good, all food cooked to perfection with wonderful sauces. The appetizers were excellent as well. The wine was reasonable priced. The only area that could use improvement is the restaurant tends to be noisy , they need to figure out how to deaden the sound.

Everything was delicious and the hostess and waitress were fabulous. Our waitress went out of her way to give us great service. Food was very good but we thought it was pricey.

Place is nice and service was excellent. Would rate higher but the noise from the street outside was a little much. Inside is nicer. Food was good but way too expensive. Overall very comfortable with nice employees, good time.

The food and service at Salt was terrific. We were at an outside table. ( Highway 72). Preferred outside to inside which seemed very noisy.

The restaurant is beautiful. We were seated right away and the servers, Jessica and Amanda were top notch. We had our two year old daughter with us and they were not flustered or phased at all. They immediately put my daughter order in. Jessica answered some questions about the menu and gave us some good ideas. The food was top notch. Clam chowder was the best I ever had. I also enjoyed my filet, cooked perfectly Medium snd well seasoned. My husband had the pork chop and said it was very tasty. We also got the truffle Mac and cheese, which was everything you want Mac and cheese to be ! The food is pricey but it is very good quality. The service was perfect. I would definitely return.

Servers were extremely pleasant. Servers did their best. Meal prep not so great. Not all dinners arrived at the same time. Steaks that were ordered did not come out as ordered, none of them (4). One had to be sent back; we switched around the others amongst ourselves. Our guest had to wait again for her meal.

$50 filet mignon that look like a hockey puck. They offered one free dessert but I believe the steak should’ve been removed of the check

The only reservation we could get was at 5:00 for 7 people on a Saturday night. We would have preferred a later time but it actually worked out well as we went upstairs to the rooftop after dinner. The food was very good and our server, Hannah, was excellent.

We actually love this place except it is way too noisy. We asked and were able to be moved but still the acoustics are a real issue. The couple who joined us said this was the second time they had come and would not come again. Not sure we feel the same but thought you should know. Also one of our meals was extremely delayed being serviced. Not good given a restaurant of the level.

Another comment this restaurant is located on Long Beach Island (LBI)which is known as a great fishing community yet not all fish were from here. Of particular disappointment were the oysters which came all the way from Cape Cod MA. LBI has fabulous oysters and when we asked they said the Chef was from MA. and makes that choice. So many people here on LBI have been here for years and feel it is a bit insulting that the Chef would not fully utilize what is readily available on the Island. He may be from the Cape but he's on LBI now. Hoping this will change

Exceptional Staff and very welcoming! I brought my mother who is 90 years and she was treated like royalty by Jodi and her daughters. Everyone was exceptional including Hanna our server to the hostesses, valet, front desk staff, and other waiters/bus people.
It was a wonderful evening. I also brought a service dog from the Seeing Eye and he was welcomed by the staff and they even gave me a bowl of water.
The hotel and restaurant was very clean and beautifully decorated! Thank you for such a nice evening. We will be back again.

Too LOUD! When 4 people sitting near each other, trying to have a conversation,now we start yelling cause you couldn't hear one another! Tired of LOUD restaurants, not energetic at all!We are also tired of having menu choices always suited to the younger crowds. Too many funky foods on the menu, lets" try and serve something that is not so far out there, and unrecognizable. When you get older, you just can't eat certain things, and I would think the older generations are the ones you should accommodate, since we have the bucks to spend.
