Having heard good things about the Salt Grill from friends, we decided to try it for out anniversary. Unfortunately, the view was the only good thing about the place.
We were very unhappy with the service provided by the staff. We felt that the staff were alway interrupting us at inappropriate moments while we were deep in conversation. On one occasion, while we were only half-way through our main course, we were interrupted by one staff member asking if we wanted our plates cleared on a Sunday evening when the restaurant was still half empty! This was only one of the many interruptions that we had to deal with. While the staff may have been attempting to be attentive, however being interrupted every 5 minutes with pointless questions was too intrusive and spoiled our night.
The food wasn't very good either during our visit. For a starter, I had the trout tapas, which came with pork crackling. While the trout was nice, the pork crackling was anemic parody of crackling as it was simply an excercise in chewing, with no flavour whatsoever. The main courses of duck and red snapper with thai salad were also disappointing. The fish had little flavour and more than half of it was returned to the kitchen. The duck wasn't much better. The only dish that was enjoyable was the Pork croquette starter.
Overall, we felt the evening was ruined by poor service and poor food that was nowhere near value for money.
