Husband and I ate here. He cannot remember what he had. I had a salmon salad which was a good sized salad and was pretty good.

The food here is excellent-especially the salads and burgers. I would recommend the corn-off-the cobb to anyone. Good selection of alcohol and fair selection of draft beer. Good desserts. Dishes generally of limited size but quality very high. Service slow but it was Friday night.

My parents and I have been on a Colorado road trip for five days now. We've eaten some great food, and some not so great food. After our disappointing meal last night, we weren't holding our breath for tonight. We looked up reviews for restaurants in Salinas, and finally decided on Shallots. We almost didn't go: one site said it... More

We had a Rueben and the Grilled Avocado Salad. Both were excellent. Our plates were clean! Several beers on tap to choose from. Nice atmosphere, friendly waitress. What is not to like?

We visited this restaurant for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. The service and food were great!The place is clean and attractively decorated. The background jazz music added to the ambiance. My only complaint is that they don't offer local wines.

Took 8 people there, they set us up on the "viking" table. Everything came out fresh and warm. Didn't miss on one meal as they all were wonderful!

We have been in Colorado for over 3 weeks and the lunch at Shallots today surpassed everything we have had so far. The soup was delicious and the salad was excellent. The ingredients were fresh and the combination of flavours worked well. The service was good, staff friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was good and prices very reasonable.

Lots to like here. The food is quality, good healthy eats. Best margarita I've had in this town. Service fast, friendly. AND it is cool inside on a hot summer day. Went for lunch and dinner. At dinner, 6 other people were with me and everyone really liked their food. Waitress had no problem splitting our ticket on 3 different... More

We went here on our first night in Salida and, on the strength of that, went again on our second night. Both nights the service was very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. All of the food is cooked from fresh so don't expect to be rushed but equally it wasn't slow. The combination of flavours in the... More
