Salt at The Ritz-Carlton Ratings and Reviews
If you want perfection this is your place. In my opinion this restaurant is up with the best of them. I mean just look where it is located and that should tell you something. I'm not even going to suggest what to get because that's what they have extremely well trained wait staff for. These guys n gals are experts in every way and I couldn't say enough good things about our experience.
We live on the Island but had not gotten to Salt since the move. It was our anniversary so we made another reservation, and kept it this time. The did a wonderful job acknowledging our special occasion. The foie gras & roasted veg salad were lovely. I had the Pappardelle with seafood (I rarely eat pasta) and my hub had the rib eye. Pasta was yummy, the rib eye went back, it was tough. They immediately took care of it & the next steak was delicious. Dessert was good my fav was cinnamon apple & salted caramel gelato. Ryan was a great server. The girls assisting not so much, they need more training. We will go back. Had a fun evening after all I had the best company in the joint!
The food is excellent- sometimes beautiful and creative presentations look better than they taste- not here. The thoughtfulness and creativity reveal top notch cooking. More variety of seafood selections would be wonderful, but better to have fewer choices prepared exquisitely.
Service is friendly with some servers more professional than others ( who are maybe too intrusive constantly inquiring to see how things are).
The wine list is well thought out providing good choices at prices one expects at this level of restaurant. There is no dedicated, highly knowledgeable wine person. Too bad.
The view at sunset is lovely- gorgeous backdrop to wonderful dining.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner this past Saturday night. We were able to talk without a loud environment and the service was impecable and always someone there at every move. The food was phenomenal and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I appreciate the waiter asking about allergies as I do have mushroom and beef allergies and did not know one of my dishes contained mushrooms. The advanced notice on the souffle for dessert was terrific and my son and his girlfriend were delighted to eat it. It was a memorable evening
Excellent food. A little too much time in between courses. Be aware The regular menu is not available during holidays. A more expensive menu is offered. We were looking forward to having steak but it was not offered on the menu. Our waiter was reallly accommodating and had a steak meal made for us. It was awesome. Very tender and great mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was a memorable experience for our Christmas meal. We highly recommend Salt!!
We are frequent patrons of this restaurant. We were extremely disappointed that the menu published on the website was not the menu being offered. We were having dual celebrations so had made reservations for both nights only to learn it was the same menu. This is not the Ritz Carlton way we have know for so many years. We understand the need to make a profit but there is much being placed at risk. Too bad. It has been one of our favorites.
It was ok or over all-average (small menu). Nothing memorable, but nothing unacceptable. A typical hotel restaurant and atmosphere. Not close to a Ritz Carlton experience like "BLUE" in Grand Cayman. Prices were fine, wine list ok, but note the sides were extremely tiny. The only alert: Watch for the host or greeter (with major a attitude) who eventually , had us shown our table, as he is above approach. Even with a reservation and half empty restaurant, he decides when you are granted approval to finally be seated, for "the best experience". Fine, (rolling our eyes), as he banished us to the empty lounge to wait.... with anticipation. Just wished with all the Provado, it lead to a great evening. We took it all with a gran of SALT. We had the opportunity to return for Christmas eve or Christmas day, but passed.
Living in Daytona Beach, Salt has been a place my husband has wanted to take me for a few years now. On our Christmas drive to Ohio, we decided this was our chance. An over-nighter at The Ritz and dinner at Salt. Dinner at Salt was one of the nicest dinners we have had at a fine restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was excellent and our experience was one we would like to share with others. We will be highly recommending your restaurant. Thank you.
My wife and I both had filets, they were tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. We had both the romaine and green salads, absolutely fantastic. I was not awed by the mashed potato side, it was ok. The wine we selected, Meiomi Pinot, set well with the steak the only draw back was the $60 plus price for an $18 bottle of wine.
The service was first class and our server, Ryan, was one of the best I've ever met.
Second time dining there. In the ritz Carlton hotel nearby where we live and find it to be the best food by far. Wonderful seasonal offerings, food is excellent. Got pretty loud around 8pm on a Sunday but lead to good people watching. We don't drink and often get sub par service from waitstaff looking for larger tips, although we tip very well. Got a little of that vibe last time we were there. All depends on the server. Still five stars from us.
Superb dinner at Salt. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. The servers went above and beyond to make us feel special. From the complimentary foie gras appetizer to the caramel macaroons that completed our meal. Everything was superb. Taylor, the guitar player, played songs ranging from Prince to Dave Matthews. All in all just a fantastic evening! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Truly wonderful cuisine!! Articulate and knowledgeable staff who exceed the already raised bar standard which is the Ritz Carlton only added to our dining experience. I highly recommend the prawn appetizer and the filet with quail eggs cooked on a salt slab entre - extraordinary!!
I MADE RESERVATIONS AT SALT, AND ASKED FOR SPECIAL ACCOMODATIONS TO HELP MAKE OUR EVENING SPECIAL AND THE STAFF, AND GUEST CONCIERGE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE US FEEL COMFORTABLE. MARIO COORDINATED THE EVENING PER MY REQUEST. THE FOOD AND STAFF WAS AMAZING.
My son (10) and I had a special evening at Salt, and the service was exceptional. They knew this was a very special event for us, and they went out of their way to make it memorable. I had the 5 course chef's tasting, and every serving was incredible. The food at Salt is like what you would see winning competitions on high end Food Network shows. Each serving was a piece of art, and displayed incredible techniques. For example, the butternut squash soup included a cranberry foam, and was served on toasted aromatic spices. This was absolutely incredible, and I will never forget the flavor!! We were able to try different salts with the different servings, and that also made for a unique experience. After our meal, we were invited to tour the kitchen and meet the chefs. I was so grateful that the staff offered this tour and allowed us to speak to the chefs and see the different foods used as ingredients. This was a very special, educational experience for my son. He even received a chef's hat!! We were provided sweets and a sample of one of the salts to take home. I will never forget our time at Salt, and I am most grateful for the experience.
Salt is the best restaurant on Amelia Island. The service is tops. The food is always good. In spite of the almost always crowded, but the noise level is below the volume for this sized restaurant. This was the first visit for one of our guests and she was, like us, an instant fan.
