    Lamb Gnocchi is awesome. Great beer selection, friendly staff. Sit at the chef bar if you want to watch the kitchen action!

    Stop in Salt for locavore dishes such as bacon with caramelized onion and goat cheese flatbread from the nearby Long Farm. Read more

    The oyster mushroom linguine is absolutely amazing!!!!!! One of the most flavorful pasta dishes I've ever had!

    We waited 20 minutes and were never approached by our server. We were greeted by a busboy and got waters, but no server! Ever! Even after telling the hostess...nothing. Fail!

    Tiny treats are da bomb

    Reservations are recommended, but they reserve some space for walk-ins (mostly just the two bar areas). The fire bar is cozy and allows you to watch the chefs do their thing.

    Sit downstairs. It's quiet and intimate. Happy Hour prices are great. Try the quinoa chickpea slider. Mmmm.

    Apparently on a sunday afternoon with more than half of the restaurant empty it was impossible to seat 4 adults and 2 children except in 40 plus minutes...really? I was psyched to eat here not anymore

    You have to the original Toms Tavern burger!

    Not much to say about the restaurant other than the dumpsters behind the building smell disgusting and they really should something about the unbearable odor of wet, old trash.

    Try the Flourless Chocolate Torte - Chocolate lovers, beware. You will lick the plate.

    Their happy hour mix-and-match cocktail options are awesome. Get the gin lavender sour or the tequila chipotle Rickey.

    If you order your meal using a Cookie Monster voice, the staff will give you a perm.

    The flatbreads are amazing! Also they make their own ketchup to go along with their yummy fries! It is definitely one of my favorite Boulder restaurants.

    Let me preface by saying salt isn't a spice it's a mineral. This place makes delicious food though flavors please ones taste buds while the presentation is picture worthy. Nice job im quite impressed
