    Casual but elegant, nice scenic view of the harbour. Our server was never far away and was very congenial and helpful as we made our food and beverage choices. We were impressed with how quickly the food arrived after ordering and it was still hot. The food was a real adventure; we were impressed with how some comfort food staples (I had the boiled brisket and sorbet) were elevated to something special. We're going back to try the rest of the menu.

    Coffee was not great and the food didn't measure up to expectations either. Unfortunately a bit of a disappointment. Not a place I'd return to for breakfast/brunch.

    Overall, we were both quite happy with our meals. Beautiful upbeat ambiance that will most likely appeal to a slighly younger crowd (20s to 40s.) Phenomenal value and quality. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Will definitely be returning!

    The only thing I didn't enjoy was the hollandaise sauce, which was removed from my bill. Not sure if I was given mayo in error, but thats what it tasted like. The Dutch baby and taters were delicious. Server was great and helpful with the menu.

    I've already sent a review to the restaurant directly, so I won't repeat myself. But the food was just awful last night, as it was last time I went to Salt and Ash. I won't be going back, and I'm shocked at the low quality of both the meals and the (really terrible) drink.

    I requested a nice table for the four of us. We were sat by a server station, in the middle of the restaurant. At a silly little round table. Probably the worst seat in the house. My husband had steak and it was the smallest driest piece of steak we have ever ordered at a resturant. The French fries were terrible and over cooked. My cod was blackened with no flavor. Just so dry. We were very disappointed. The only thing we enjoyed was the corn bread. I am only give it this many stars as the services was good. Where we were seated was awful and the food was awful. We won't return

    We had a lovely dining experience: the ambience was great, the decor beautiful, our server delightful, and the vibe upbeat yet chill. The food was fresh but a tad bland in spots, with a limited menu. That said, I would still recommend this spot for it's lovely environment; I just wouldn't put it number one on my elevated food choice list.

    Overall, the atmosphere and service were good but the good was just a miss. We all did the Dine Around menu. The Brussel sprouts were undercooked and lacked flavor. The salmon bowl was honestly pretty bland. And the Smore pudding was decent, just the crunchy bits turned off some of our party.

    Staff were attentive and pleasant. Food was outstanding and had kitchen table lamb. Portions were good size. Had coconut cream pie and triple chocolate cake for dessert. Both were large pieces and excellent. Best coconut cream pie I've ever had and I am a connoisseur of the pie. Restaurant while busy was quiet enough to have conversation . Unique atmosphere with open fire kitchen, stage for music, and fireplaces.

    I would love manager to contact me. I was really unimpressed with our waiter. We arrived and were brought water, and then the waiter walked away. Following that, we then waited another 15 minutes before being asked what we would like to order. The waiter did not seem to notice how much time was passing as they came back multiple times to the table next to us and the tables to our left, but was not aware of our needs or our order going in. We also had made the reservation with the knowledge of us getting the special, chicken parm. After 20 minutes, and no offer of getting us a drink of any other kind, then water I finally asked him for soda. I was deeply unimpressed with the server and their lack of attention, as they seemed to be wandering around, but not giving One table much attention at all. if the service had been better, our experience may have been better, however, knowing where you were located as well as the price of your meals, this is not the service I expect when I come to a restaurant of this caliber.

    Jalapeno cornbread was good, and so was the fried chicken. However, pepperoni pizza was so greasy that we couldn't eat it. Even gave us bad stomach cramps after the meal. The pizza also took about 40 mins to get to our table. Our server seemed swamped, and came off quite unfriendly. I.e., really the only interaction we had with her was when she took our order and that was it. It was also very loud, but i get that's part of the appeal for some people.

    Menu offers a variety of appealing options. Ambience conveys positive energy while not 'crowding' individual table 'space'. Venue is bright and takes advantage of the waterfront view. Server was pleasant, helpful and welcoming.

    Wow...just WOW!! I highly HIGHLY recommend Salt & Ash. The staff went over & above, the food was amazing & it was probably the best dinner experience I have had in a long time. Location is perfect & parking is easy peasy being in a fairly limited parking environment along the Halifax waterfront. We will be back...often!
