SaltAir Seafood Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated our son's graduation at Salt Air since it is his favorite restaurant. The table was fairly private as requested, but they jammed 10 people around a table that would normally seat 8-9 which appeared unnecessary as the restaurant was not full. The waitress had 2 other large tables at the same time and was challenged to keep up with our orders. Very disappointing since we have had so many other great meals at the restaurant. They were also out of the special entre for the night. The small plates and appetizers are still the best part of the menu.
The avocado appetizer is one of the best we have had. The mozzarella cheese appetizer was different but good. My wife's lobster tail was excellent. I had the grilled brazini which was outstanding. Our waitress was very good but some of her support staff was spotty. It was the only thing that kept it from being five stars!
My wife and I have been here several times before and we have always -- including this most recent visit -- found the food to be outstanding. Unfortunately, last Friday, one couple decided to bring their young children and let them literally screech and scream while running around their table without any effort by the parents to restrain them. Thankfully the restaurant did as well as they could with this situation. Our waitress was gracious and sympathetic in promptly handling our request to be re-located, and the manager stepped in to comp all of us (there were four of us in our group) our deserts.
This was our second visit to SaltAir and we were not disappointed. The major stand out was the service--our server was friendly, positive, attentive, and knowledgeable and the whole service staff worked together to coordinate a really excellent meal. The campechana and fresh chips were outstanding, and the sauce on the polpo was very nice. The garlic spaghetti was some of the best pasta we've ever eaten. Only complaint was that the lobster tail was a bit overcooked, but given how expertly everything else was executed, I would wager it was a fluke rather than a repeated problem. We will be back and definitely recommend to others!
The food at Mother's Day brunch was delicious, as always. The service was a disappointment. There were 10 of us and I realize that is a challenge but we have had wonderful service at a table of 8 on a previous visit. We are semi-regulars and brought a couple who had never been to SaltAir to celebrate with us. I am not sure they will return. We didn't see the manager that is usually circulating. Again, the food was very good but we had a very long brunch!!!
We took my sister and 92 year old mother to dinner Saturday night and were on time to take advantage of some happy hour items. Liked the Chardonnay but the East Coast oysters had been watered down with melted ice. LOVED the bronzino but the lemon sauce on the snapper was a bit heavy. Great carrots and asparagus and loved the half avocado. Very happy with our service
The bread on the table was stale. The fish sandwich bread was stale. Those should be the easiest things that are hard to mess up. The fish was actually ok. We ordered dessert and the the brownie was dry, stale, and crumbled apart when you cut into it. Again, something that should be so easy to like.
On the other hand, the service was great and the waiter was very nice. It was not his fault the food was sub-par.
There are so many places in the area to eat that they will need to step it up in order to compete.
We sat at the bar. The waiter upsold us on our food order. Then removed our plates that had food in them without asking. When I wanted a refill on my champagne and the glass still had some champagne in it instead of refilling it there in front of me, he took the glass away and proceeded to take care of something else, open a bottle and.... SO I had to ask him to bring the glass back until he was ready to fill it up.
Saturday and Sunday Brunch is now named Salt Air! Never guessed there could be a better Benedict - because I never met one I didn't like. But they get a gold star. Served with abundant Canadian style bacon, skinny fries and a great salad. Our favorite treat is also a true value - the $1.00 each Gulf Oysters, I think brunch only. Best in town! All of the salads and sandwiches are creative, beautifully presented and delicious - we have tried the whole menu. As the name tells you, you don't want to miss out on the fish, shrimp, scallops. It's either fresh or they don't serve it and run out. One of Houston's finest restaurants. PET Friendly Patio - very comfortable, and the staff quickly serves fresh water dish for Wilson, SPCA grad.
We went for a girls dinner for one our friends who was having a birthday. They have a cute sparkler and cotton candy tower in lieu of cake. The shrimp and lobster salad was amazing. All my friends loved their food too. One had grilled shrimp, another the goat cheese ravioli and a beer salad and the last the garlic spaghetti which she said had a surprising kick. Couldn't eat dessert but hope to next time. Definitely a try.
First time visiting SaltAir, had been wanting to try it for several month. So, finally made a reservation and tried it for the first time. The experience was well worth it, and the only regret is not having tried them sooner! The service from the very moment we arrived till we left was superb. We started with the fried calamari, it was very well seasoned, exceptionally tender and was a great start. The Wedge Salad was outstanding with a great blue cheese, fantastic slab of bacon. My partner had the fried shrimp which was perfectly fried and tasty. I had the scallops. They were perfectly prepared and were great. For desert we had the lemon desert... it was palate cleansing and sharp and a real delight. We will be back.
SaltAir always satisfies! I have enjoyed SaltAir since they opened. The FRESHEST seafood, and an incredible array of choices. I am extremely pleased they are open for lunch now. This is a great place to escape to during the day, as well as their night menu. Thank you, again, for a memorable meal!
We had a lovely Easter jazz brunch with family at SaltAir. The music was perfect and the menu had lots of great choices for everyone--from goat cheese ravioli to tuna poke to lobster and egg brioche sandwich. The staff could not have been nicer and it we really enjoyed the whole experience.
Food - Not very great, no taste; Service\server not attentive at all, as well as need additional training – serve from the Right and pick up from the left and do not reach across a customer; Restaurant very noisy; Advertise a jazz band, which we could not hear…
Had lunch on Easter Sunday. The restaurant is very beautiful inside and has a nice shaded patio. We ordered sandwiches off the regular menu - lobster roll and the lobster blt. Both sandwiches were delicious as were the fries that came with. The menu had many other items that we would try so we are looking forward to going back for dinner. Service was excellent; we got a lot of attention and never had to ask for re-fills of anything. Highly recommend Salt Air.
The service was absolutely horrible. I suspect the waiter was high on something. Disappeared for extended amounts of time, brought the main courses before the appetizers, gave us the wrong bottle of wine, someone elses check etc. Worst I have ever experienced. Will NEVER go back. Food was OK - overpriced.
We enjoy this restaurant. This visit was a little disappointing. Our food was great but our service was not up to SaltAir standards. Our server never brought us any bread before or during our meal. He did not come back to check on us. Came back for us to order dessert and then give us the bill. Luckily the food is delicious so we will be back and ask for a different server.
Our dining experience was wonderful. Creative food & excellent service. The decor is amazing. Service was wonderful including the hostess and Rooster, our waiter. The support staff was efficient. Really lovely dining experience. This was a birthday dinner for my sister, and the cotton candy surprise was a wonderful touch. She even took the leftover home! We live walking distance from the former Coppa location on Washington. Glad to see your executive chef is still creating at a very high level.
This was my first visit and won't be the last.
Using Open Table for reservations was super easy and fast.
The ambience is noticeable from the minute entering the restaurant. Lots of great menu options and service was impeccable. The cotton candy with a sparkler, for my friend's birthday, was the cherry on top. Thank you!
