Our third visit, all for special occasions. From the friendly welcome to the 'thank you for visiting' goodbye, the evening was excellent. Friendly but not obtrusive service, excellent food, great wine recommendations when we asked, and a nice ambience were highlights. Each time that we have visited has been similar.

Great ambiance in this place, and the food was really delicious. We had scallops and lamb and two salads to start. All were exquisite. The bar options were a bit limited, but perfectly good given that the place isn't known for its cocktails.

I would return for the food. At the same time, I felt the service was less than stellar, especially at the price point. When I'm spending a ton of money on a meal, I expect enthusiastic, friendly and attentive staff that help make the experience memorable (in a good way). This wasn't our experience, and I had to stay really positive in order to not let it affect our mood and enjoyment of the meal.

Did some research online, near Casaloma, as we were going to the haunted house after a dinner. Came across Flor de Sal and the reviews were great.
Incredible ambiance, amazing service and delicious food!
After dinner while leaving, the owner Christina, asked what our plans were. I had let her know we were going to Casaloma and I had forgot my jacket, as the weather was cold that evening. Without hesitation she offered me a blanket from the restaurant. I took her up on the offer and used the blanket all evening. What an incredible gesture! Hours later I returned it to her and was very thankful. You will not be disappointed in choosing this restaurant! We felt like family there.

The ambiance alone makes this spot truly special. Christina and her group do an amazing job of creating a relaxing yet classic fine dining experience. The food is unique and exceptional and the staff is attentive, friendly and efficient.

Flor de Sal is one of our favourite spots to go out for a nice dinner and we refer to it as 'paradise'.
I requested a birthday dessert for Jeff when I made the reservation. I know that the request was received because the hostess made mention of the occasion to Jeff but we were served a regular dessert and I had to excuse myself from the table and request a do over. The error by no means ruined the evening, but it would have been nice to count on such a fundamental part of the celebration going flawlessly.

Ordered cataplana that had 12 baby clams and 1 shrimp, I didn’t think that was a good deal for 44$

Other than that, I love the restaurant.

Hi ZubyS, Thank you for taking the time in giving your valuable feedback!First off we are glad to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance, and your friend the branzino. I would like to note the the sardines were as fresh as the branzino, since the have the same origin, and arrived at the same time. We are also sorry to hear the croutons served were not suitable for your palate. Wish you all the best! Managment.

Beautiful decor, excellent service, intimate, and overall feels look like eating in a beautiful and upscale home. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable of the Portuguese food, ingredients, and wine. The staff that were serving us were originally from Portugal and speaking to them about geography, festivals, and traveling added to our dining experience. Food was also excellent but I would have liked to see a few more Portuguese dishes.

The “best kept little secret” in the city (selfishly reluctantly recommending).
Absolutely beautiful decor, delicious cuisine perfectly prepared and presented, excellent staff and service with Christina (the owner) usually personally dropping by to add a personal touch!
My new favourite and now a “regular”!
Enjoy!

Main courses were very good, if somewhat expensive for what they were. Appetizers were sub-par for a restaurant with this reputation and price point. Foie was undercooked and Portuguese medley seemed re-heated vs. freshly made. Wine list was very limited and overpriced, with a strong emphasis on bottles >$150.

Ambiance was great. Staff was very friendly and the owner even more so. The most important though, the food was outstanding. Had the sampler appetizer, squid ink seafood risotto, my girlfriend had the pan seared salt cod. Another sampler for dessert. I can’t recommend this more, one of my all time best meals.

We visited Flor de Sal for Summerlicious. I was a little disappointed with the limited choices offered, both for starter and main course. Fish (rather then clams) as a main course would have been appreciated.
I do feel that the Summerlicious lunch is rather overpriced.
Unfortunately, my friend chose to sit outside and the traffic noise is considerable even though valiant attempts have been made to mitigate this with the use of greenery and latticework.
I would recommend the restaurant but not for Summerlicious lunch...and advise indoor seating.
Service was excellent.

Expensive and not good. The Portuguese appetizer medley was too salty, and most stuff were fried, which was not indicated on the menu. On the opposite the main dish, the "Cataplana" (fish, shrimp and clams) was not salty at all and had no taste at all. The quantities were very small. For desert the 2 mini custard tarts were smaller than a regular one. The patio is right on Davenport, so it's very noisy. The service was good, but the doorman was not very pleasant. The only nice thing was the decoration of the house. Not worth it.

Hi! We would like to thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback of your visit! We are pleased to here that you did enjoy our menu at Flor de Sal. Unfortunately sometimes sitting in the patio, the Street can be a bit noisy, especially during rush hour, nothing that we can control, but perhaps for next time just let us know and we can sit you in a different area! Thank you Cheers Flor de Sal.

Finding a parking spot near the restaurant was challenging, until they told us we can park in an empty lot across the road (but there was no sign to indicate that); once inside, service & atmosphere were excellent, the Summerlicious menu was quite enjoyable (incl the Vinho Verde), and I think the whole experience was very good value!

Flor de Sal is a lovely, refined restaurant. The decor is upscale, bright and cheery. They have a patio, main floor dining room and bar, and a second floor dining room to accommodate different customer needs. Great for a romantic dinner, entertaining clients or a celebration. The server we had was perfect. Always there for our needs, but invisible otherwise. The chef was very welcoming and warm. My husband and I had the Summerlicious lunch, trying 6 different offerings. Everything was beautifully presented and very tasty.
