Menton and salt

Have any of you had the experience of overuse of salt in dishes at Menton? I was there last night for the tasting menu and some of the dishes were downright difficult to eat. The skate wing as an example was fine on one side and then on the other it was so salty that it burned our lips. There was an amuse bouche that was presented in what seemed like a brine and then the pheasant (I think it was pheasant instead of squab) and the lamb were pretty rough.

I was kind of embarrassed because I am not the type of person who complains at a restaurant and am just wondering if this was an off night (I imagine it was). It was a little disappointing given the price point of the tasting menu but eh. We had a nice time at Drink downstairs and will continue returning there.
