On their webpage they had the menues, open hours and some other information. We walked there in hope of a good evening and interersting food -- but it was closed with a note... More

Love Salts. Food is outstanding, excellent wine list and top service. The duck (for 2) is out of this world. Food is fresh, well presented, and always outstanding.

My wife and I dined here for a nice night out after the theater in Boston. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews here and a colleagues recommendation. We had reservations for nine o'clock and showed up about 15 min early. The table was ready right at nine. There are so few tables it is not hard to understand... More

If you want the best of food and service, go to Salt. It is a restaurant where one is served like few places do today. The food is very creative and delicious.

According to Tripadvisor this is the most exepnsive restaurant in Cambridge MA. This is probably right but you get what you pay for. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent, as was the atmosphere and service. For the mains, GET THE DUCK! It sounds expensive at $68 for 2 people, but it was brought out whole, and it... More

Organized a group dinner at this restaurant where I had been reminded what true hospitality is! The owners are the brain and heart that make the whole experience memorable. Bravo to them! From the preparation to the delivery, an impeccable A+! For a group of 25-27, this is THE place to plan an event in Cambridge - you basically rent... More

We were underwhelmed....we were there 45 minutes before ordering. There seemed to be only one waitress and any time we tried to get her attention she looked like a deer in the headlights. The owner comes out and greets you which is a nice touch but honestly, I'd rather have quicker, more consistantly attentive service. We basically had to ask... More

Had the stuffed duck for two and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very nice wine selection ((California wine). Attentive service but not overdone. Mid week visit so not crowded, quiet atmosphere. Parking on the street (metered) only (no Valet) so plan a few more minutes. Great local find>
