Excellent visit to the Salt house. Food and the wine was great. The wait staff was excellent and they did offer smaller plates as well as full meals. Loved the small plate duck entree. Walking distance from our hotel.

Had been here before 2 yrs ago & had a nice time, so very annoyed to order 2 simple lunch specials and then wait 40 minutes to be served. People arrived after us & received their a la carte meals before us. Not Happy!
