I book the mezzanine area on 7th October for my boyfriend 30th birthday. Great venue and great staff. One staff stood out in particular- Cece or Cici. she was absolutely amazing. She literally went the extra mile for me. She always checked on me throughout the whole night to ensure I had everything i needed. She always had a smile on her face and nothing was never too much. The only reason why I haven't give this review a 5 stars is only because our first bartender was a little rude to one of my guest which I did not appreciate. Apart from that - amazing night for sure. mariea visited John Salt on 07 Oct 2016

Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. I recommend the mezzanine for big parties as we've been very well taken care of.

Booked a table for 11 for a baby shower. Staff were really friendly and accommodating. Free mocktail for the mum to be on arrival was a lovely touch. Food was really tasty. Would highly recommend. Thank you! Elisa visited John Salt on 09 Jul 2016
