Try the fish tacos. What Salt does right is keeps it simple, avoids the pretense, serves people really good, properly portioned food well, in a nice place that's nice to be in. Great big piece of wood bar is a great place to eat.

Salt is overhyped, under staffed, over priced, poorly executed small,nay miniscule dishes of quite ordinary food pretending to be tapas, to justify the high price for small bites. The half teaspon of olive tapenade with some corn crackers offered for 5 people at our table...More

Our group of 5 recently went to Salt on Ossington on recommendation from several friends. The place had a cool vibe without being pretentious. The tapas were good, some exceedingly so. The seared scallops with maple smoked bacon dish was the highlight of the night....More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
