    Our first time visiting this restaurant. From the valet to the maitre d and wait staff,(especially Paul) everyone was very attentive,friendly and knowlegeable. The concept of a $25 non alcoholic mocktail is still a bit of a stretch for a date night special occasion; making the option to bring your own spirits a lot more advisable! Next up was the tuna pizza which was divine and lived up to the standard one would expect from a Michelin level star chefs kitchen. The spinach salad offering we shared was also innovative as it was prepared tableside by a waiter. I must say that while the miso black cod entree was flavorful it was a bit dry and the cloud of something was tastless.(see photos) My husband said the sliced chicken cutlet served on a thin bed of mashed potatoes with delicately roasted baby brussel sprouts was tasty, though not usually offered at a high end Asian fusion style restaurant. We would definitely give this restaurant another try when the rooftop sushi dining opens!

    We were welcomed at the valet and lead to the hostess desk where we were greeted again. We were seated immediately and our server for the evening explained the dining experience and the cocktail selections. Our food was elegant and delicious with a flair. Definitely a date night or girls night experience. Byob of you like alcohol in your cocktails. There is no corkage fee!

    The drinks and presentations of them were so well done and creative! Really enjoyed the moonchild. The tuna pizza, I could’ve had 5 of them SO tasty and again very creative dish! Gabe was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu items. Dilon, the manager, was very personable and made sure to check in on us during our meal. The look and smell of the hotel and the restaurant was very elegant and clean. I can’t wait to return again!

    The experience was overall very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and attentive, and took time to explain the tea and the food offered in each course. The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The only change we would have made would be to opt for outdoor seating. The dining room we were seated in was lovely and bright, but the tables were placed very close together, so it felt a bit like we were in the middle of our table neighbors’ conversations. The outdoor area looked so pretty and more spacious, so will definitely try that next time.

    Quedé enamorada de toda la experiencia. Desde que llegas el aroma espectacular del hotel te recibe y luego el amable personal del hotel te lleva hasta tu lugar. El ambiente es hermoso un poco Mediterráneo con artes y plantas para tomar unas fotos maravillosas. La presentación de sus platos forma y estilo peculiar te hacen vivir una experiencia diferente. Empezamos con sus cocktails (no tienen alcohol) Moonchield & Into the wood deliciosos, luego pedimos la Akira Pizza de atún Wao Wao si les gusta la truffa no duden en pedirla como aperitivo. Decidimos compartir un NY steak delicioso término medio perfecto con fried rice Wagyu mmm. Terminamos con dos postres muy ricos Chocalte in a Cup & Cigar. Yo definitivamente vuelvo para probar otros platos y disfrutar del ambiente acogedor. Gracias a Randi y los demás chicos por el gran trato.

    True world-class cuisine & service at Salt & the Cellar by Akira Back - this was my second time dining here and I'm already wondering when I can next return. The Ette Hotel is beautiful, and its team are clearly committed to providing an extremely high-level of service. The restaurant provides a real culinary adventure - with some of the best mocktails around - plus you can bring your own alcohol to supplement the mixes. The tuna pizza is a masterstroke - don't miss it - and the the richly-flavored wagyu tacos are a must.

Paul was our waiter and he did a very good job. The tables were a little close but they were fine. We will be back to try out lunch and breakfast.

    AMAZING!! I can’t say enough good things about it. Alex and Shelia have outdone themselves. If you appreciate details then Ette hotel and this fabulous restaurant is a MUST! Paul and Dilon went above and beyond with their service. The drinks are super fun and tasty and EVERY bite of food was perfection. Francis gave me a grand tour of the hotel afterward and sent me home with French tea sold exclusively in the US in this hotel. It’s by far the best experience I’ve had in years!

It's a true dining experience. Prices were reasonable for the entrees. I recommend the filet mignon and jidori chicken too. The Caesar salad was excellent and chocolate cup was to die for!! We will be back for sure. The moon shadow mocktail was delicious too. The coyotes wagu fried rice is a must have!!
