Tasty food

We visited Shallots on our trip to Salida with friends and our 5 year old daughter. We sampled multiple small and medium plates while our daughter ordered off the kids menu. Food was great and cheese filled wontons were especially yummy. Waitress was friendly but service was a little slow. We... read more

That is if you like horseradish, and I do! Housed in a historic building owned by the restaurant proprietor/brunch bartender make a charming atmosphere. The serving sizes do not match the prices, huge homemade portions at reasonable prices.

There is nothing to dislike about this place it is brilliant. Dolan the barman/mixologist is a great host but the only thing is you never know what colour his hair is going to be. He is a very funny guy and the rest of the staff are also very friendly. Can't wait to go back

I have eaten here several times on visits to Salida and enjoyed my meal every time. I like coming here because the chef works hard to present something distinct. I especially like the options between small plates and traditional full course meals.

We rented Shallots for our pre wedding party since all of our guests were from out of town. They did an outstanding job catering the event. They were so friendly and accommodating to work with during the event and planning. I would definitely recommend them for an event or to go eat and socialize. The bar has some great wood... More

Those people who are looking for a quick, pre-processed meal are not the right customers to enjoy this restaurant. It takes slightly longer to get your food, but they are not slow and give you a chance to make dining an experience. On top, the owner, Don is a caring, friendly person who will chat with you at the table... More

The service was okay, the salads were good, wasn't a fan of the entre, had stuffed shrips it was good but the sides of spaghetti which was passable. Don't think that we will return.

I, my family and my friends have eaten here often-not sure why it took so long to write a review. If you are in the mood for a good Rueben sandwich in the Salida area-there is no better place than Shallots. I have tried this sandwich at each restaurant in town and Shallots by far hits the nail on the... More

We visited last evening again and both couples were impressed with the food. I guess we have similar tastes as the four of us ordered two Bolognaise and two smoked half-chicken. The chicken was excellent with a raspberry sauce which was pleasantly spicy. Accompanied by boiled potatoes and grilled vegetables, it was a very tasty meal. I took it with... More
