Awesome onsite restaurant at Wentworth by the Sea! We have been a few times for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast is amazing! For lunch we had flatbread pizzas, salads, and cocktails and all were great as well. Decor is very modern and chic, it's a cool vibe, would definitely recommend!

After reading many glowing reviews, we booked our table for 10. Upon arrival, the host said table was ready yet. Prior guests are lingering. The reservation was for 7:30. We were seated @ 8:15 pm. We were given 2 complimentary cheese boards. Nevertheless, our meals were not served until 9:30. I say my salmon was delicious. So just a note... More

Firstly, the staff is just fine. Very friendly. The ambiance is lovely. I went there with a group for Christmas luncheon. Salt is totally vegan unfriendly. There was not one vegan option on the menu. One suggested item contained eggs - a vegan no-no. Chef was willing to give me a plate of vegetables. Seriously. I decide what I'm going... More

This is a great little gem in the Wentworth By The Sea Resort. The service was top notch and the food was terrific. Great selection of wines. Wait staff recommended a bottle of Butter chardonnay and they hit the nail on the head. Perfect pairing with our salmon. We went during restaurant week in Portsmouth and this was a great... More

A friend and I had lunch yesterday and were seated close by fireplace as requested. I have been visiting here for the past 10 to 12 years now. The lobster bisque is excellent and unequaled. Yesterday the service was adequate and the server pleasant, but not quite up to par. No bread was brought until requested; no spoons for coffee... More

We are locals, and love going to this restaurant. The food tonight was incredible- fresh warm rosemary bread, everyone's meal was great. I had the roasted Brussel sprouts (best ever) and meatballs. Steak, salads, pasta and scallops from everyone else was wonderful. Cleaned plates all around. Decaf latte, dessert. Quiet table, great service. Book now. And make sure to keep... More

The service at Salt was outstanding. This was a surprise for a friend and we wanted everything to be perfect, and it was. I thought it was a tall order asking Doug, our wonderful server, to recommend bubbly and wine to compliment our wide array of scrumptious tastings, but he delivered and he also popped the champagne as the birthday...

On our most recent visit to Salt we had lunch. One of our party had a terrific salad and I had the roasted oysters to start. Our next course was salmon which was perhaps the best salmon dish we've ever had. To end the meal there was a pumpkin cheesecake or a salted caramel chocolate tart. Each was delicious. The... More

I enjoyed several meals at Salt. The breakfast crowd is busy on the weekends....because it is so good. Omelette stations and everything else you could possibly want for breakfast. Try the lobster roll as well - piled high and super tasty! Great staff and service as well!
