Great food!

My friends and I were in town for a concert and stopped at Shallots for their brunch. The staff was friendly and the food was great too!

Very well done by Don and his wife along with the staff. Large group, around 30 with appetizers and various main dish plates, all very good. We will return without hesitation. Try it you will be pleased.

Don, the chef and his wife the owners at Shallots put together a fantastic dinner for my husband's birthday. We had 10 people including 2 vegetarians and a vegan. The food was all delicious! We asked to sample many of their craft beers, which they accommodated, sat us in the perfect size room for our party, and went above and... More

We went in late afternoon for lunch and got top-notch service. We loved the decor inside that I would call "chic meets west". The salad was one of the most delicious I've had in a long time. It seemed like they just picked all of the vegetables fresh from the garden. YUM! We were not rushed at all and had... More

My wife and I visited Salida and were told that this was a great place to have dinner. We were very pleased. Shallots is known for their salads and organic/ light dinners. Excellent overall.

We went here with all 5 of our kids while spending the day in beautiful salida! The service was good but the food was incredible! I had the street tacos (fish) and I wish I could eat them everyday! Price is average to good for what you would expect to pay in a place like this. The kids said their... More

Shallots was our first introduction to Salida's eatery scene. My wife and I enjoyed it. This is another building that was obviously once some kind of retail storefront, but has been redecorated as a restaurant. They have several tables, a bar area, and some wooden booth seating (though not padded). We sat in the window so we could watch the... More

The best food we had while in Salida. When I ordered grilled vegetables they weren't out of a can, they were actually fresh vegetables grilled and the Scanga steak was awesome. Considering what we paid to eat at other places, prices were very reasonable.
