Poor service. They need more servers. Small portions. Food wasn’t that great considering the price. Disappointing.
Outstanding service. And the food was amazing. Best duck I have ever had. The small bites were explosions of flavor. Loved my evening there and will be back.
Good food. Nice location. We were a Table for 3 so we were placed in the back of the restaurant which was not the BEST... but the rest of the tables seemed nice.
We were catching up and pretty slow to order (our waiter pointed out that they like to turn the tables quicker - not cool). Food was served quickly and everything was good!
Celebrated my birthday and service was exceptional! They made sure we were taken well care of. Definitely an awesome spot to celebrate + a few of my friends were first timers and very impressed. Thank you guys!
Tasty options with great cocktail list (and non boozy cocktails)- liked the decor, great ambience
Salt House's service was impeccable, the atmosphere was lively and the food was delicious. The menu offering has a variety of unique dishes. The corn and zucchini soup was lovely, the cheese platter was a perfect starter for the table and the shishito peppers were the bomb. The wine list from my perceptive is a bit limited as most of the bold red wines are in the higher price point($100.00+). However, the limited red wine list won't dissuade me from dining, but, I will book Salt House for a smaller group.
Great fish options and the appetizers are always good... shishito peppers... yum!
What happened to this place?
The food was shockingly bad!
The service was terrible. My wife and I ordered two cocktails minutes after we arrived, and it took the server 35 minutes to bring them to our table. He was defensive and had excuses for the delay. And didn't apologize. To make things worse, the cocktails were weak.
The food was bland, overly salted, and the fish was undercooked. Not what I was expecting for a $32 entree.
The restaurant was extremely loud. My wife and I had to talk really loudly to hear ourselves across the table.
The server paid no attention to us. He didn't ask us how our food was or seem to care. When it came time for the check, he just plopped the bill down on the table and left. Still no "thank you" or "sorry again" for long waits.
This was truly a bad experience (and expensive one). A real bummer.
Always an excellent experience. The food is amazing with great options, but not overwhelming amount of choices. The staff is always attentive and very professional. I love this place.
I love this place! I had a beet salad that was awesome. Best salad I've had in a very long time at any restaurant of any caliber. It's a must have when going here. I'm an old dude and I'm starting to like places that are slightly quieter. Love the energy in this place, but we sat up stairs, and it was a bit noisier than I would have liked. But, that had no impact on what a fantastic evening and meal we had! I'll be back and will sing your praises!!!
A little pricey for small portion size.
Great experience overall. Delicious pork chop and incredible duck. Substantial portions as well. Will be back soon!
Went for lunch during a convenient. Specifically booked a reservation since time was short! Our server was efficient and engaging. Food was great, especially the poutine. Only disappointment was that arriving slightly early for my reservation I was asked to wait outside despite plenty of available tables. Seemed unnecessary and rude.
Slow service, poor quality cod, bad wine, super long wait times
Ramen was objectively bad. Loud place. Great service!
Way too expensive compared to the quality and taste of the food. Both of the dishes didn't taste of anything.
I went there for a lunch with my client. It was a lot noisy.
We went for lunch and got there when they opened at 11. We had the poutine, the beet salad and the duck confit. All were good. The lunch menu was kind of limited; hence the four stars
I normally come here for lunch given proximity to work. I have to give them credit for getting their lunch service in order and streamlined. I used to avoid coming here if I only had an hour for lunch (usually took 1:15-30) but now the wait time and service is much more efficient which is great. That said, they need to work to change up their menu every once in awhile. Everything I’ve had here (which is most menu items) are all solid.
Noisy at lunch, but excellent food & service. Can be very busy at lunch. I would suggest a reservation.
Great food and great service. We have visited a few times now for dinner and the staff have always been a so pleasant and helpful. We really enjoy the food and atmosphere.
Pretty disappointed at the quality of the food. Our salad was very bland and my fish smothered in sauce.
Date night with the wife. Great as always.
The food is very poor.
I know that I’ll always have a good experience at Salt House. The staff, the quality of the food and overall appeal of the place will keep me coming back...as I have since Salt House opened.
Food and drinks were wonderful- always love having a date night here!
Went there for lunch. Food was ok. There was a chicken with pasta dish. Pasta was a little gummy. Ordered some red wine. A full-bodies cab. It was fermented. Yuck. Notified the waitress who brought me another red. Better but a little dry. The noise. THE NOISE!!! It’s so damn loud in this restaurant! Decibels bouncing off of the brick walls. I don’t think I’m going back. The noise gave me anxiety.
I've dined here three times.
The FOOD is unrelentingly incredible. Every element of every course has been remarkable, fresh, and novel. The fish is always beyond excellent, The Aged Ribeye was truly perfect, Duck Liver Mouse was amazing—a discovery unto itself, and the Short Ribs for Two with sweet potato pureé and mushrooms was falling off the bone and drew sighs of gratitude with each bite.
The SERVICE has been solidly friendly, responsive, and prompt from door to check on every occasion.
The NOISE level in this narrow, attractive room of 100% hard, flat surfaces and ceaseless, desperate customer yelling is even more unrelentingly painful. You and your server will be shouting to be heard by the person sitting next to you and your ears may well continue ringing into the next day. If you plan on audible conversation book the earliest time possible, bring ear plugs just to be safe, and don't stay long.
Great space, open kitchen, great location on Mission. Good menu choices, something for everyone.
Difficult parking; service was par; prices above par, food quality par. Wouldn’t go out of my way to dine here again. Had higher expectations. Pork chop was tough.
Food and service was exceptional! Will definitely be back.
Celebrating a birthday. Could not talk at table too loud, could not hear my guest.
the halibut was disappointing, it was extremely bland and lacked flavour, and it was a little on the dry side.
the octopus & lamb pappardelle were excellent, and dessert was absolutely sensational.
we have been coming to salt house for the last 10 years and had never before had a negative food experience.
Not sure. The space and staff are beautiful, but many of the entrees were good, just not great. My Halibut need a bit more sauce and the fish was just slightly overdone. Similar issues for the cod and duck courses. Seems pricey for the final product. Honestly, loved the noise level (very comfortable) and the space is beautiful, chairs get a bit uncomfortable maybe a pad or ares etc.
The evening was perfect! Great waitstaff [she made excellent suggestions;; awesome cocktails; delicious meals! Thank you!
The service and food were excellent. It was great to dined at the Salt House again
Disappointed with dinner here. Short rib was excellent, but other things left a lot to be desired; wine selections were way overpriced. But the biggest disappointment was the grilled little gems salad. Really the only flavor was gas grill. Somebody not paying attention on a recent weeknight.
Nice, clean local. Easy public transportation. Tasty food!
