    Seasalt served delicious seafood--the shrimp were especially good. Our waiter was so attentive and kind, and he even gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. It was noisy, and I'm kind of hard of hearing, so that was the only problem, but I loved the music and energy of the place, so it was a tradeoff I was willing to make.

    Nice place, great service especially from the owner/GM. The food was good but not exceptional. Oysters were fresh, but the crabcake had way too much filler for $28 and seemed frozen. Their seafood platter looks amazing online, but isn't on the menu, it needs to be ordered ahead. The patio is nice, although there is music from the place next door so you have multiple tracks playing at the same time which could be distracting for some (not the restaurants fault on that though) . I would recommend for a group of friends after a day of site-seeing, but not my go-to for fresh seafood in the city.

    Food was good. The service was good at first but 5 minutes after waiter got his tips. He sighed and rudely told us «  girls people are waiting » . I don’t mind being kindly told that we needed to exit since it was packed but that was not the case. We didn’t appreciate his approach. We we’re talking amongst ourselves and he came out of nowhere with that sigh .We stayed barely 50 minutes in total.

    compared to our 2 last visits, the lunch food offer was much more limited and less savoury. We had the fish burger at $22 (small portion of fried fish served with cabbage) and it did not include french fries. Unfortunately, we will not return

    Food was fine and we were happy to be seated on the lovely outdoor patio. However, after we had ordered dessert to go, the server's demeanor shifted from friendly and helpful to pushy and unpleasant when he asked us to leave the table so that more people could be seated. There were other open tables, and we had just received our cheque when he made this unexpected request. Clearly his only interest was in turning tables to increase his personal profit, rather than any regard for the customer's experience. In total, from the time we were seated until we were booted out, we were at the table for less than 90 minutes for 3 courses and drinks. This server ruined the evening and his attitude overshadowed the food. I'd look elsewhere for a relaxing experience. Apparently Seasalt is fast food.

    Good overall. The staff is friendly and drinks are very good. Oysters are very good and so was the crab cake. Mussels are great but they need better fries. Bistro fries, thin and crispy. We will be back.

    The food was excellent and the crab cake appetizer was especially delicious. We sat outside and enjoyed a great meal, ambiance and service. Only complaint was no extra bread either mussels and side salad was a little plain, but would definitely recommend if your a seafood lover.

    Service was very slow. It took us over a hour to get our entrees. The salmon was the best of the 4 entrees. The sea bass was uninspired. The Caesar salad was flooded with dressing. The mussels, a dish Montreal is known for, were horrible. Over cooked and doused with Old Bay. Any mussel flavor was non-existent.

    Very good location and atmosphere. Hostess was lovely and accommodated our request for a table outside with just a few minutes wait. Service was a bit slow, both my husband and I ordered fish entrees. Portions were on the small side and prices were high. We both enjoyed the meals. Wish there was bread or salad with the meal.

    I rarely leave bad reviews but we had a pretty disastrous experience at Seasalt, so bear with me. Our party of 5 sat down at 6:30 PM, when about half the patio was empty. It took a while for our orders to be placed but we put it down to staffing issues due to COVID. It probably took a good 30-45 min after we arrived to get the oysters we ordered. We also got our drinks then (which were probably the best thing we had all evening). We then waited patiently for the main course… which was served past 8PM. Several tables in our section seated after us got their food before us. Some even had time to eat, pay, and leave before we got our food! We brought up the issue to the manager and voiced our displeasure, but we were met with defensiveness and entitlement. The manager treated us like there was no issue at all and this was a normal occurrence. We ordered a seafood salad, a tiradito, two lobster rolls and a risotto. Beside the latter, none of these items would take a lot of time to cook, but we were told that longer cooking times for our items was likely the reasons why we had to wait so long. I mean, the buns on the lobster rolls were cold and hard, suggesting they sat for a while before we received them. That’s not worth the $42 each we paid for them. It was really off putting to be treated as we shouldn’t be displeased by the situation. A simple “I’m sorry” from the manager would have made the experience better. But we were made to feel like crap. There’s nothing wrong with long dining experiences, but it should not take more than 100 minutes to be served a main meal! We will never go back or recommend this restaurant. The food was meh and definitely not worth the long wait and the more than $500 we spent there. Side note: we still tipped our server properly. He was really nice and the situation was not his fault. But this restaurant needs a better kitchen organization and management.

    We had hoped for a table on the patio, however a lovely corner table in the main room was certainly acceptable. We had scanned the menu beforehand and were very excited about the selections. The exceptional cocktails were ordered and after a bit of a wait we enjoyed the basil gin and the Jalisco Germain - wow; amazing! She had the crab cake and I the shrimp cocktail for appetizer, again a bit of a wait but the food was delicious. The wine we selected wasn’t available so we chose a newcomer to us - it did not disappoint. After we ordered our mains, she the sea bass and the lobster risotto for me, we enjoyed the sips and let time pass by. The plates were delivered and the food came out perfect. Except for inattentive service (water never refilled, wine never refilled and empty plates not cleared) the overall experience was very good.

    Very nice patio for summer evenings. Probably the best patio in Old Port. We have been a few times and really like the crab cake and mussels. The fries with the mussels are not great though. Should be bistro fries… long, thin and crispy. Pretty easy to change that so hopefully they will. We didn’t Like their shrimp tacos as they were missing real flavor or spice. We usually get a bottle of prosecco for $55 which is reasonable. Service is friendly and attentive. We will keep going here for the summer.

    We were seated and the manager explained that a couple of items were off. We ordered drinks and waited 45 minutes to get them, while bar staff and waitresses chatted. When they did arrive, the virgin mojito was not alcohol free, causing significant distress to the recovering alcoholic who ordered it. Staff apologised and said the drink would be taken off the bill, though this did not happen and had to be requested. When ordering food, we were told that both the starters and mains requested were no longer available, which is not what we’d previously been told. We amended our order and over 30 minutes later the waitress came back and told us that one of our mains was now also no longer available so the order was changed a third time. Though staff were friendly and apologetic, the overall feeling was of poor communication, lack of attention and significant delays. The food itself was tasty but overpriced.
