In a age where restaurants eliminate their pastry chefs, this restaurant highlights theirs. His/her breads and soufflés were incredible. The waiters greet you by name and excel at describing their menu. The food is incredible. I would rate this restaurant number one in the Jacksonville area.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing food! The prawn appetizer is my favorite! The filet cooked on the salt block at the table and the pappardelle seafood pasta were outstanding! We eat at least once every time we stay at the Ritz Carleton Amelia Island! We dined twice this trip and as always this restaurant is second to none!

Great atmosphere!

Fois Gras was a little undercooked but tasty. $61 Ribeye & $47 filet tasted & smelled like BBQ with sauce on it unfortunately and was not our favorite. Halibut was not available so flounder was substituted and everyone kept calling it halibut even on the check. $100 bottle of red wine was room temperature which was a huge bummer as well.

Hoped for.a great night but didn’t happen for $400.

From start to finish. It was a memorable evening. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing. They are sure to ask your dislikes and likes. And after every tasting make sure you enjoyed it. Every tasting was superb and we even had some combinations we would have never thought belonged together. But the chef knew what he was doing. Our server was very passionate about her job and spoke highly of the chef. And the salt, what an education on different salts. Amazing. You are given a couple when you leave to use at home. It was perfect evening and wonderful food and service. Note. This was our second time at Salt and both times we did the tasting menu. And we will be back to do it again. I'm sure!

My husband just returned from deployment and I surprised him by taking him to this phenomenal place! Very high class and a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for! Excellent service, amazing food and the views are spectacular! We will definitely go again! I also recommend doing the "adventure" menu, if you are open to most foods. They will ask if there are any allergies or foods you do not prefer to keep in mind, but this gives you a chance to really see what the chefs can do!

Over-rated restaurant. We tried the tasting menu - which lacked character and flavor. Definitely not worth the $400 we spent!

It was my Wife's Birthday and right when we arrived she was treated like a Queen.
The Bartender was great and they had some very unusual styles of drinks.
Our Server was GREAT. They brought out several different Salts for us to try, at the end of our dinner, our server asked my wife which ones she liked, at the time we were finished they brought out a plate that had caramels, macaroons, and two salt packages with the salt she liked and the plate said Happy Birthday.
It was a GREAT Experience.
Oh and by the way all the food was prepared properly and tasted GREAT!!!!

A must stop for us every year during the Concours show. Always fantastic service and incredibly well prepared food. They also always introduce me to a new fabulous wine. My husband and I dream about our next meal all year long. The staff made our experience even more incredible this time and we are so appreciative. And be sure not to miss the signature salted caramels!

I liked this place. A wee bit pretentious, because, you know, it’s The Ritz. We were there during Amelia Island Concours. Unbelievably loud for a Ritz dining room. But, service was great and so was the food.

The waitress was the best part of the experience. She was excellent. The food was average not as good as in the past. The shrimp was over cooked and flavorless. The seafood pasta dish didn't have a lot of seafood in it. The live entertainment was very nice. Probably won't go back, at least not for a long time.

The restaurant is located in The Ritz-Carlton which is beautiful itself. The restaurant is located near the beach so you can sit by the window if there is an open table. Reservations highly recommended. The staff was extremely nice and very knowledge, and very attentive. The food was amazing. From the prawns, to the tenderloin served with a salt slab so that you may complete the cooking to your liking. Too full for dessert but I hear the soufflé is awesome.

We are usually on Amelia Island in Jan and Feb of each year and have eaten at Salt on a number of occasions. We weren't able to get a reservation when our son in law was visiting last year and when we dined at Salt this year we were reminded how extraordinary a dining experience is. From my blackberry mojito, to incredibly well crafted salads and main courses Salt stands out way beyond any of the restaurants we have dined at on Amelia Island. The wine list is extensive and a bit pricey, but there were wines in each category that were well selected and of exceptional quality. My wife had the foie gras with caramelized apple and said it was an incredible treat. I had the elk chop which was perfectly done and our son-in-law had the steak and lobster which he highly approved. Each of us had a souffle for dessert, and each of us was delighted with our selection. We have eaten at a number restaurants on Amelia Island, but Salt is remembered as our favorite, and we look forward to returning.

Although we knew it would be a bit pricey due to the location the value/cost for quality just wasn’t there. I’m glad we went but won’t do it again. Service was wonderful
