Worth seeking out in non-touristy neighborhood. Great vibe and friendly staff. Like the Mission in SF but with a tropical flair. Grilled tako (octopus) starter was stunning. Main course of braised beef cheeks hit the spot. Good cocktails and decent wine list.

I traveled to Oahu from Maui with several recommendations to try Salt. Very glad I did! The beet salad was truly amazing. Rabbit fritter very good app. Fish special transformative!! My nephew ordered the chicken which arrive undercooked but the waitress response was perfect. Whisk it away and bring something else. Not the perfect restaurant for 16 year old non foodie actually...
I will absolutely return

I found this restaurant online while perusing through the Top Ten new restaurants in Honolulu. I chose to make reservations at SALT Kitchen and Bar Tasting because the menu concept of salted, cured and pickled seemed interesting to try and it was an award winning eatery. It didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was casual and unpretentious. It had ample parking in the back. The menu consisted of items such as blistered shishito peppers, oxtail empanadas, chicken fried local rabbit and hearts of palm salad with seas asparagus, thai basil, pickled cucumbers and won ton flakes. The taste just burst in your mouth. It was indeed salty but, oh so flavorful! For my entree, I had the local flat iron steak with fried egg puree and grilled oyster mushrooms. Apparently, another favorite of its customers was the kulana burger. They had a diverse selection of cocktails from around the world with mixtures called smoking goat, flight to Mexico, Italian stallion, and deep six to name a few. The servers were attentive and explained the various dishes-its ingredients, where its was from and how it was prepared. The prices were also affordable. The location, being out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki was also a plus. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I really enjoyed Salt. It was fun and unpredictable. These guys are really trying to be experimental, and it's working. It is out of the way, and like my other favorites in Honolulu- are not in Waikiki or the city. And it's a good thing. This is a great, fun, local place, that serves locals who are into food. When I go back to HI, I will go to Salt again. If I was to say to order anything it would be the Oxtail, and maybe the beet salad is a close second.
