Foursquare Tips

  • Walking by the fish market up front youll likely get a sense of what will be on the menu from the ice beds holding super-sweet Nantucket bay scallops or a bountiful array of oysters.
  • Try the Banana Coconut Cream Pie
  • Oysters, blue shell mussels, fried Ipswich clams and more join entrees like bouillabaisse, skate wing and smoked toro dashi to pretty much cover the gamut of seafood. [Eater 38 Member]
  • 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.
  • This Palisades restaurant has its own fish market. And a happy hour from 4-7 pm Mon-Fri has amazing drink specials. So stop in for a drink and a pound of the freshest seafood in town.
  • Fabulous service. Excellent menu. Mos def a place to impress a client, business partner...or date.
  • Hit up this spot Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 2:30pm, when $18 gets you any three (of four) options: an appetizer, entre, dessert or drink.
  • 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.
  • Not a bad thing on the menu. Brunch faves: Eggs Pontchartrain & Texas Pink Shrimp & Grits. For dinner: wood grilled whole fish.
  • The bread platter is delicious.
  • 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!
  • Get the lobster!!
  • Oysters, caviar and champagne!! Delicious...
  • Skate wing with lentils is to-die-for.
  • ** 1/2 stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the snowy fish.)
  • Wood grilled whole Dorade Royal was excellent.
  • The Pacific Butterfish appetizer is highly recommended
  • Major letdown. Salmon was raw and branzino was burnt. Heirloom tomato salad full of peppers. If they say full fish, they'll give you a filet. Seafood isn't at its finest here :(
  • Oysters, seafood, bread.
  • The bouillabaisse was amazing. Great food, well-prepared. Comprehensive wine list. Pricey. Service was good.
