    Food was excellent. Server was very prompt. Service overall was excellent. The table next to us who seemed to be meeting a future daughter in law was excessive in the noise level from the perspective of me and wife. We understand the excitement, given we have children of our own, they are however younger.

    Always a delicious meal at Blacksalt! I called ahead to see if they had any soft shell crabs available in the market and they were able to prepare them for one of my guests. Absolutely perfect for her and the Caesar salad with grilled prawns was amazing as well. Love the changing menu and delicious salads. And dont sleep on the cheeseburger either! thank you for a lovely lunch.

    Blacksalt continues to be my favorite restaurant experience in DC. The food is amazing, but the long term staff are even better. It makes all the difference.

    We never saw our server after ordering. Neither my husband nor I received the hash browns we ordered. No offer to refill our coffee, either. The food we received tasted excellent (as has been our experience many times in the past), but the lack of attention and the relatively small portion (or general lack of our order) left us disappointed and hungry.

    Excellent food with prices to match. Surprisingly noisy, even in the backroom. I guess dependent on presence of loud talkers. But a special place to dine, particularly seafood.

    Fried clams were delicious! Belly clams at their best. Lobster bisque was a bit weak and thin. The service was excellent. But the room temperature was too cold!

    Great seafood. Selection and prep were top notch. Even the steak was good. Fantastic deserts so don’t overload and skip desert. Cool vibe. A little stinky up front from the fish market. The bar is nearby. Love the concept but “summer fish market” is never going to be a top selling scent. 😃

    A lovely little place in a isolated neighborhood just west of DC with excellent seafood and attentive service. Wine list is a bit eclectic so you might need some guidance, and the wine prices are on the high side, but if you know enough the choices are very nice.
