Since my husband and I were on our own for Thanksgiving this year again, we decided to repeat last year's visit to Salt. We made a reservation for early afternoon and were a little put out that they had no record of it, but the hostess handled the situation well and seated us with hardly any delay. They do a... More

This is our first year we had Thanksgiving on our own. We went out to eat not sure what ti expect. The dinner was lovely with 3 course choices. The service was courteous and efficient.

Hubs and I have been here on several occasions over the years as we’ve always been pleased with the innovative menu, fun drinks, and great service. This last time was not bad, but the hostess was not as warm and welcoming as usual – maybe it was because we came in around 2:30PM on a weekend when they were transitioning... More

Service was great and the inclusive dinner was most enjoyable. The restaurant has a busy upstairs and quiet basement dining room. Would recommend

A treat to enjoy super November weather having lunch outside at Salt. Menu is short but interesting - and we enjoyed everything we ate (especially the blue corn tacos). Service was excellent too. Definitely recommended.

The concierge at the St. Julien recommended this restaurant and made a reservation. We looked at the menu and found things we liked so we went. Once we got there, the menu had changed with few things we wanted to order. Three of us got the chicken which was sort of flavorless with mushy brussel sprouts, I got the burger... More

We sat at the bar on a Saturday night, for a cocktail and a snack. The anticipation far exceeded the event. The bartender was filled with attitude, and gave me a withering look when I asked if he had remembered my girlfriend's wine order. It would have been better if he had forgotten, because $12 for a glass of middling... More

Three of us had lunch at Salt. Two of us had the quinoa burger which was very good, with melted cheese and salad instead of fries. One of us had the beet salad. The food was very flavorful and fresh. Decor inside is fun, brick wall with painted designs. The bathroom was classy with cloth washcloths to dry your hands.... More

Dined at SALT on a girl-trip to Boulder this past weekend. It was CU homecoming weekend so I expected it to be crazy busy with bad service. They were busy but the service was excellent. Really good cocktails. Not crazy about the menu at all. I found it limiting. We all did. So much so that the three of us... More

A nice America style bistro, high quality foods, casual atmosphere and several sophisticated vegetarian options. Would definitely go again.
