SALT has been in my own backyard for a couple of years now. We've been there a few times, a now I think it's time for a review. Service is delightful but food falls a little short to make this
into a neighborhood fave. Chef-owner David Iino's skills are apparent with his seafood dishes and it would be great to see more of this type of classic cooking on the menu. Alas, that's where SALT falls short. The menu is small and not all of the dishes as
wonderful as the salmon. I do love that Chef David comes out to check with customers about their dining experiences. Produce is fresh from local farmers' markets and local farms. So if anyone at SALT wants to take my advice, cook up some more of
that fresh local fare and forget the Chicken and Waffles. Oh, did I say Chicken and Waffles? Yeah, I'm always a sucker for that dish. The Chicken and Waffles ($9) is two panko crusted chicken tenders with two mini waffles served with a metal cup of balsamic
maple syrup. I've had them before and they were pretty good. This time the chicken was a bit burnt in some places, and for the most part, just didn't taste as good. Waffles were not light nor crispy. The Iceberg Wedge ($6) was just that a big
wedge served with bacon, tomato, red onion, bleu cheese crumbles and dijon ranch. We ordered some Garlic Bistro Fries with Herb Aioli ($5). Fries were hot and aioli was tangy. The star dish was the Grilled Salmon with miso sauce ($24). Perfectly cooked salmon
was accompanied by fresh baby seasonal squash. The salmon was delicious. And I should know as I shared this dish with my husband, much to his chagrin! SALT 26500 Agoura Road #116 Calabasas (818)880-9260 Hours: Mon-Fri: 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
