Ate downstairs in what appeared to be one of two tables. Restaurant appeared somewhat new. There were more upstairs, but did not get an opportunity to see the decor or how many stairs up. Good food, good service, bit on the expensive side. Worth a try.

The quality of the ambience, food and wine are as high as ever at this gem in St John’s. The staff are welcoming to everyone and many have been there for several years which sends positive messages about their feelings.

There is no problem with offering creative vegetarian dishes and I even found space for a piece of partridge berry cake for dessert. A delicious light ending to the evening.

Last night I was part of a retirement dinner function held at the Saltwater. Ever aspect of the meal and event were fantastic. The service was great, the food amazing(scallop app, Lamb main and apple dessert) and the upstairs room perfect.

While expecting better than average seafood, I received a poorly prepared seafood risotto (overcooked scallops and gummy sticky pasta). While I may have hit a bad night or a bad dish (based on the reviews it was a anomaly) but one I will not endure again. I would go someplace else for a seafood dish.

A lovely restaurant with fantastic food.Service was wonderful...friendly yet professional. Alternate lighting could definitely create a much cozier atmosphere.
