The Saltwood at The Sanctuary, Coastal California

The Sanctuary restaurant was rebranded to Saltwood, a farm-to-table restaurant specializing in sea food. The project was a full gut-renovation including upgrades to the structure and electrical wiring. The kitchen was reconfigured to suit the new concept and all equipment was replaced. Millwork and wood flooring was added and all furnishings were updated. The AV in the private function spaces was expanded to include video conferencing, music, and computer connection to projector and television screens. The exterior received new façade paint, lighting and signage upgrades, and landscape improvements.


The Culinary Destination of the Monterey Area.

Salt Wood features three distinct dining environments – a full-service dining room, lively bar and lounge and al fresco dining patio. Our experiential oyster bar and central live-fire kitchen act as the heart and hearth of the restaurant. From cocktails on the patio to large group parties held in our multifunctional meeting space and private dining rooms, Salt Wood offers an experience like no other.
