    Blacksalt is probably the best seafood restaurant in the D.C. Area. Great for lunch, too. Definitely have a meal there. 9/10 Sept 7, 2016

    It was great. It was also easily the most expensive dinner I've ever had. So the value proposition isn't really there. But if money is no object, go.

    I remember they had skate wing fish on the menu which I like a lot and it's not very popular. It was delicious with lentil salad

    Really enjoyed each course here. Salmon tartare appetizer is excellent. And the seasonal apple pie with ginger ice cream and butterscotch sauce is perfection.

    Look, I hate anchovies, but their house-made anchovies make a fantastic Caesar. And their tilefish is the best seafood dish I've tasted in months.

    If you appreciate fine dining service, you'll love it here. BlackSalt has the kind of servers that know to wait until both guests are finished to remove plates. So refreshing!

    A little out of the way for us, but fabulous dinner. Flounder entree was fabulous. Starters were spot on - oysters/octopus/clams/oysters rockefeller/scallops - excellent. End with banana cream pie.

    Reserved seats are in the back; it's like a different restaurant back there. The service was ok and the crab cake was delicious. I thought the rest of the food was just ok.
