Great experience from start to finish...

Went here for the first time last night, and it was a great experience from start to finish. I like dry, not-too-tart wine, and the server got it right with his suggestion - the very first time. The food was excellent. We had deviled duck eggs (served with lox on top - that was a surprise), warm broccolini salad, fresh oysters, swordfish with local mushrooms, and steelhead. I'd never had steelhead before.... view more

Moderately priced dinner.

Sea Salt is located near the corner of Dwight Way and San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley. As is the case with many restaurants in Berkeley, Sea Salt does not have its own parking lot. There is, however, plenty of parking available on the nearby side streets. The menu features mostly seafood options. I ordered the white clam chowder, fish & chips, and sorbet. The clam chowder was flavorful and the bacon scattered throu... view more

Fresh, well-prepared seafood

I love Sea Salt.. I live on Alameda and head here whenever I am in the mood for fresh, well-prepared seafood. The ambiance is unique, and very fitting a high-end seafood restaurant. And if you ever want to test whether a restaurant truly has friendly service, go with a baby. We had four adults and an infant on our first visit. We didn't get any askance glances from wait staff (or other diners), and were ab... view more

Good food, but loud and expensive.

My wife and I went to Sea Salt for dinner on a Saturday night, and were a bit disappointed by the experience. There is nothing wrong with the food, exactly - it is all nicely cooked and so forth, and the service is quite good, but I just didn't feel that it was very good value for the money. Our bill, including two glasses of their cheaper wine, was a tad under $100, without the tip, which I thought excessive. $18 in... view more

Great seafood and great service!

I dined at Sea Salt with a group of eight friends and the meal, service and wine was solidly good. Our server, L*sa, was very attentive, friendly and provided good recommendations. Everyone in the group enjoyed the different appetizers we ordered and everyone's salad was well liked. (I ordered the Marin Root Salad which was superb.) I asked our server to pick a fish for me since I was undecisive and the Hawaiian Walu... view more

Go for the oysters during happy hour ...

I went with a group on a Sunday evening and was surprised at how busy it was. \r To start and pair with our Champagne we all shared a few dozen mixed oysters, at $1.00 a piece it was a great deal. That said, if I had it my way they would all have been kumamoto?s.\r \r For my starter post Oysters I had the steamed mussels, which was nothing special, the same I?m sad to say went for the entree?s of the pan seared ... view more

A great, non-traditional seafood restaurant

We've eaten here several times, and I my experiences have been great. The smallish plates are impeccable, both in presentation and in taste, and priced moderately in my opinion. The servings are much more European than American sized, which doesn't bother me, but others may feel ripped off. The oysters they serve tend to be smaller varieties; but that may be variableI prefer the smaller ones, myself, so it's no prob... view more

sparkling oysters, darkly cozy ambience, great staff

The reviews for this place didn't inspire confidence to dine here, but I was glad we decided to ignore them! Friday night at 7PM and the restaurant was packed but it took us less than five minutes to be seated at a cozy bistro table.We started off with Beau Soleil and Long Island Blue Point oysters making the round and both were refreshing and delicious, not briny and just the slightest hint of creamy. We ordered the... view more

Fun to eat at the food bar

My husband and I went recently for our second go round. The first time we went it was for lunch, this time for dinner at the bar. We were more impressed this time. It seems to be getting the groove like Fonda has, only not as busy. The service was excellent. We had great oysters - normal size, not small like the other reviewers claimed. Also had the endive salad, clam chowder, and caesar salad. I do agree that... view more

No reason to return

Why the hype for this place? It's so overrated and much too expensive for the small portions. I went for lunch, but the waitress was unable to meet my friend's request of grilled fish atop a salad. We left, and I returned with another friend for dinner. The crab salad was good, but the $2 oysters were literally the size of a quarter. The waitress seemed annoyed when I returned the miniscule oysters for clam chow... view more
