Salt Seafood & Oyster Bar
Always an awesome dinner here. Service and food are excellent.
Excellent food. Oyster selection was impressive. Halibut best I have ever had. Highly recommend this place.
For starters, I had the Charred Octopus. It was delicious and perfectly made. My date had the Crab & Avocado Toast. There was a large portion of tasty crab. Our entrees were the Parmesan Crusted Sole and the Lore Lobster Ravioli special. Again, we were not disappointed. The meal was satisfying and the outdoor experience was lovely. To top it off, the flourless ganache chocolate torte was scrumptious. I could eat this meal again and again. Will definitely return! Was an excellent first time experience. I usually travel to NYC for good eats, and am extremely happy to find a great place close to home.
Always a first class experience....awesome food, staff & service.
Dinner date with my husband was absolutely lovely. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was superb. Can’t wait to come back.
To summarize, our experience at Salt Seafood was outstanding. From the ambiance (sitting in a park named for Joyce Kilmer with a gigantic tree in the middle) to the wait staff (excellent) to the FOOD!!! OMG, every course, and we sampled many, were great. The chef knows how to cook, assemble and present each dish to perfection.
I totally recommend this restaurant to all seafood lovers, you won’t be disappointed
Enjoyable and spacious outdoor setting. Amazingly great dinner and desserts!!
Excellent, as always. Brought a friend who had never been. She loved it. Service suffers a little sitting in the courtyard vs out front, but for more than 2 people, it is your only option. It was very charming out there, though. All the food is delicious, but we have some go-to's that never fail : the oyster selection is fantastic. The grilled prawns never miss. I am partial to the Parmesan crusted lemon sole, and my husband had been hooked on the King Salmon. Our friend had the sea bass special and loved it. Dessert was also outstanding, if a bit decadent ! Can't wait for the next visit.
Excellent with great server, Michael
As previous experiences in this remarkable seafood restaurant, we really enjoyed our dinner al fresco. Everything we selected was beautifully prepared and savory. The weather and
music - despite mixing with different styles coming from other restaurants/events nearby - contributed to create a lovely ambiance.
Only our second time dining outdoors since they've permitted it. We were seated in the street in front of the restaurant so unfortunately it didn't make for the best environment. The street was open to one lane of traffic so we'd suffer the occasional motorcycle, loud music from cars driving by with their window open or a broken muffler. The Stress Factory also has a tent up right across the street and once the show starts the noise spills over. We didn't learn until after we finished eating that the restaurant also makes use of a park around the corner to set up additional tables. I would strongly recommend you request your table there.
Aside from that, the restaurant provided it's usual outstanding service and food. The crabmeat cocktail was wonderful. for entrees I had the Halibut and my wife had the Snapper. We each loved our dinners. Portion sizes are good and they provide a lot of vegetables, not the usual of 3 skimpy asparagus you get in other restaurants.
Desserts were a nice selection and we enjoyed the flourless chocolate cake and the creme brulee cheese cake.
Oysters are always great and staff very friendly, diner was awesome
Amazing is all I can say. From the moment we sat, which they let you pick btw, to our departure, everything was top notch. My wife has a food allergy, we told the waitress and she was beyond accommodating. She educated us on all the safe foods to eat and modifications that they can do. She did not rush us at all, we made sure to check because some places are doing that now. We were genuinely happy with every bite of food we had. And the drinks too. We'll be back soon.
Always exceptional meal and service. Our go to.
It was nice to be outside. Weather was good, food was better....m
Amazing. My favorite restaurant and date night spot.
Excellent food. They did the best they could with the outdoor dining arrangement. Will definitely go back, hopefully one day when indoor dining is permitted.
AMAZING dinner! Talk about finding the perfect balance of a light and fabulous dinner al fresco. Fabulous service and amazing food. It wad the perfect “date night”
We dined in a shaded outdoor space with musicians playing jazz music. Our meal was delicious, as always, with the exception of the side of Brussel Sprouts which were served limp as opposed to crispy.
As always the food and service are excellent.
It was my first time here and despite the craziness on COVID it was an excellent meal. The restaurant and the staff have adapted to a difficult situation and are pulling it off far better than other establishments that I have been too. I can’t wait to return especially when we can have indoor dining.
Amazing service from the staff. We were seated outdoors and when it began to rain we were VERY quickly and easily moved to another table and then again when the rain started coming down harder - all without us asking and after the first drop fell. They even discounted us significantly due to the rain, which was obviously not their fault!
We were so amazed by the great service, we’re still talking about it the next day. The food was extremely good - we ordered the oysters, crab cakes, and soft shell crab (special). Each one was amazingly flavorful and perfectly portioned. Can’t wait to come here again!
The staff and food was amazing. Even a little thunderstorm didn’t sway the great service and food.
We sat in the outdoor courtyard next to raffertys. We were sat next to the big tree in the middle. A squirrel keep jumping off and on the tree right next to us. So we were moved to another table. Then Starbucks decided to have their building power washed. It was very loud and we were getting sprayed. The crosswalk could down that speaks was also very loud and annoying. The food was great, but I will wait until indoor dining reopens to return.
Great food warm people
The food is amazing here. We had oysters and the seared tuna. Everything made to perfection. It was our first time at this place and probably will go back. Another great New Brunswick resturant.
Had a wonderful meal and a great time here.
We enjoyed a perfectly presented and served meal, outside on the sidewalk. The service and quality of the food was on point. Kudos to all for pivoting during these challenging times.
Fantastic first experience at Salt. I have been wanting to try Salt for the last year and unfortunately the midst of a pandemic was when we could finally try it out. I am impressed to say that they were incredibly conscientious, professional, and cautious in following covid guidelines. Tables were placed with ample space and the set up made it so that only servers came anywhere near your table. We were seated on Church st on a hot day which ended up being fantastic because the tall buildings blocked any sun glare at 6:30pm. It was a bonus that we were in close earshot of the outdoor comedy show going on at the Stress Factory! Food was unbelievably fresh and delicious. Cocktails on point. Service was warm and inviting. We cannot wait to return!
The food was amazing! Our waiters were amazing. Highly recommend
Food was delicious and service was extraordinary. Was very pleased.
Consistently excellent seafood and service. Love the outdoor area!
Place is a home run. Food was outstanding! World class cocktails and amazing service. A must go!
It was special because it was our first time OUT since COVID. They did a great job given the circumstances. Food was excellent. Drinks excellent. Service great. Strange being outside on the street BUT grateful for it. Although we did not mind, thought it was kind of funny, we could hear the music from Steakhouse 85, comedy routine from Stress Factory and music from the restaurants on George Street as it was all happening at the same time outside. We actually enjoyed it.
It was a great dinner Saturday night!! The service was perfect!! The drinks were on point and the dinner was excellent. It was nice sitting outside however stinks that we can’t eat inside due to CoVid19. It was still an amazing dinner and experience.
We sat in the courtyard during the pandemic and we were pleased with the delicious spread. Loved the sea bass over leaks risotto and the ahi tuna. Highly recommend.
The seafood at Salt is fresh and phenomenal. The drinks are also delicious and unique. This is one of my favorite spots in New Brunswick to dine with friends and loved ones.
Portions could be slightly bigger for the price but the food is great, I enjoyed the atmosphere and of course it was only a little noisy due to the fact that we were dining outside.
