We weren't sure where to eat but as we had eaten on the Abbot Kinney Blvd earlier in our stay, we decided to explore [it was very quiet as we walked along the Blvd]. We were about to turn back when we came across the Salt Air. It was an enjoyable experience with friendly staff and equally friendly customers. Prices were reasonable as was food choice. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the area.

Salt Air is a small restaurant in a visually cool white space with tables separated enough to feel comfortable. The food was creative and delicious. I had a butternut squash soup with popcorn and crème fraiche that was intriguing and wonderful. The waiter was extremely friendly and informative.

We sat at the bar and had a veggie burger and the grilled brussels sprouts. Terrific. My friend enjoyed her salad…said, "it is just what I needed." Great place to talk -- quiet enough to understand what people are saying but busy enough to know that your next door neighbor can't eavesdrop.

I like everything about this place. It's on the coolest street in LA; Abbot-Kinney, near a couple of my other LA favorites. The vibe in the room is comfortable, light and modern. And the food is really good. I had the bouillabaisse, which had a wonderful, flavorful broth, which I suspect had a stick of butter melted into it, and rather than a small piece of toasted bread floating on the soup, there were to big pieces of great toasted bread sticking into the bowl. The house salad was just right and the salmon that was poached in olive oil was described as "perfect". The only miss was the pear and rhubarb tart, which had a few slivers of fruit in a tasteless crust. All things considered, though, a great meal.

Beautiful atmosphere, open space - enough room between each table that you keep your conversations to your self. The name fits perfectly to the place and the food is outstanding. I generally love mussels, but most of the time you get them served in white whine sauce with or without creme fraiche. These mussels were served in a coconut curry soup which was so spicy in a good way that I could have drank the whole bowl until the last drop. Fish chips were extraordinary as well as the desert: Brown sugar bruleed figs on angel cake and whipped cream - we ate everything until the last crumb. Havenly good! FYI: Fine wine selection by the way. We had a wonderful evening and they will for sure see us again - thanks to our very friendly charming warmhearted waitress!
