Disappointing first impressions. We were a party of four who made a reservation the night before for a lunch meeting. I called ahead the next morning and confirmed over the phone. The hostess was entirely confused. Kept asking what day and what time for dinner, when clearly the reservation was for lunch on the reserved day and time. Finally she... More

Salt is a really good restaurant that just oozes "Boulder style." Easily one of the best restaurants on Pearl Street -- and in Boulder for that matter. A place for return visits; never gets old.

Enjoyed lunch here -- went back for dinner and was sorely disappointed. They do have friendly staff -- the food however, just doesn't cut it -- would rank it higher for lunch alone

Courtesy of service (top) Ambiance (nice post industrial style) Flight of beer (4 samplers) Special of the day (excellent shoulder with fries and salad) Flatbread with prosciutto (yummy) Complementary focaccia (very good)...

We had a wonderful dinner here with a large party. We were unfortunately late (sorry!) And they were extremely accommodating. Our server was very knowledgeable with lots of great suggestions. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced.

It was good but not great. The menu was very limited. Atmosphere was good. We had one person in party that needed gluten free and the apple salad was about her only option. I would recommend the Brussel sprout salad.

My family and I had Christmas Eve dinner here. The meal was simply excellent. WE began with a large meat and cheese board which was superb. Then we indulged in the tenderloin, short ribs and pork chops (a carnivore group). Simply delicious. Service was attentive, the atmosphere in the cellar was fantastic. Good vibes all around. It was not inexpensive... More

We'd read many OK reviews and some not so great reviews of this place. But we found ourselves in Boulder nearby and liked the concept of local produced fresh food. As local producers of natural free range raised Lamb, we always keep our eye out for restaurants serving natural Lamb. Walking past their signboard, they featured a Lamb Burger. Seeing... More
