For just over $100, I thought a meal for 2 would be more enjoyable. We had calamari, which was good, along with a bottle of wine, pork and sea bass entrees. The pork was dry and very plain. The sea bass and risotto dish was also quite tasteless- it was definitely missing seasoning. I never write reviews for restaurants, but... More

We didn't have a reservation. They were PACKED (great atmosphere, loud and bustling, but not jarringly so) but they accommodated us with zero notice. When does that happen?!? Our waitress (married to an owner) was totally down-to-earth, funny, easygoing. Her menu recommendations were excellent. The food was delicious and it even ventured away from standard Italian -- for example, try... More

My husband and I went out a few days after our wedding, both craving Italian food. We typically stay within the area of WeHa, but wanted to venture out for something different. After a quick search on Yelp, we were excited to check out Salute. Unfortunately, our excitement resulted in disappointment. The best part of the experience was the hosts.... More

Where do I begin? The manager was so sweet! Our wait staff was among the most attentive I have ever had. But, the food was amazing! I would drive back from NJ to just to dine there again! Worth the time and effort to go!!!!!!!

Went there with a group of six. It really didn't live up to my expectations based on the other reviews I read. Staff was friendly and service was ok. All the food was just ok. The pasta dishes were nothing special and the steak ones, although I did not have one, looked dry. They also gave us no bread at... More

My sisters birthday rolls around and my brother and myself tell her to pick a restaurant and we'll take her out. She picks Salute. Never heard of it (live in MA) but no biggy. What an awesome restaurant! The service really is unbelievable. I think every employee that walked by wished her a happy birthday. Absolutely above and beyond any... More

Salute has always been my favorite in downtown Hartford, but my experience this past weekend pushed me to finally write a review. The food is obviously exceptional, based on the other reviews, but it's really the service more than anything that makes it top-notch. My family was visiting from out of town and we strolled in around 6:30 on a... More

When the owner left his former establishment, his new restaurant caused quite a buzz. Jimmy is what makes this place so great! Service is perfect, food is awesome and you always feel like you are a long lost friend. I have used it for business lunches, family celebrations, and couples night out with my wife, and we are never dissappointed!

My Girlfriend and I were walking around Hartford, CT looking for some good food after a long day at a youth soccer tournament. We found a gem in Salute! Great staff and great food! I would definitely recommend this place if visiting Hartford, CT.

I went for lunch and was greeted with a smile! I sat at the bar and Jen was excellent at her job! She explained my GF/DF options and explained things to do in the area, when I asked. The food was great! Perfectly cooked GF pasta with sausage and shrimp, and a spicy kick! It was great! The service was... More
