Lots of menu choices, surprisingly not very busy. Enjoyed the food. French fries are fabulous. Server pleasant; service ok. A very pleasant atmosphere. Outside dining available when weather permits. Salads and quiche very good.

I've eaten at Salute a few times over the past couple of years. I like Salute, it has a nice neighborhood vibe. The chef always treats patrons to a sample appetizer. A warm bread stick in a bag is also is served right away. I had a steak special. Can't remember the sauce but it was good. Not an overwhelming... More

Restaurant was surprisingly low-key and uncrowded for a Saturday night but the bar was still excellent. Interesting list of well-crafted cocktails. We opted for several French plates and all around, the food was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. I recommend this place.

This very popular French cuisine dining establishment has earned their reputation via an eclectic menu & fine service. Last night's 44th anniversary celebration with family on the curbside patio surrounded by lovely flowers was a gorgeous event. We enjoyed escargot, salad Nicoise, scallops St. Jacques & other assorted entrees (large enough to share). Wine list shallow; but, such is life!

Had French onion soup and chicken cobb salad. Both were just OK. Salad dressing had no flavor. Presentation was pretty though. Friends had the burgers/fries with hollandaise sauce and enjoyed their meal. Another friend's ahi tuna meal came well after the rest of ours and they did immediately comp it without asking! A house glass of wine was $9.00. Service... More

This is the Edina version of Salut on 50th&France. Stopped here for midweek lunch in late July. The service here is very attentive. Staff are constantly checking table,filling water,etc. Croque Madam is good enough to skip the trip to France. And they do know how to make the Fries. Green goddess dressing on the mixed salad with a really nicely... More

We love Salut. Delicious menu with a variety of French inspired cuisine and a service staff that is just lovely. Steak Frites to Escargot to the Duck, it doesn't get much better than this. Oh yes, let's not forget the Salted Carmel Pots de Creme; just great at every turn.

This is one of the few restaurants that we continue to go back to. Usually there area always new places we want to try so we don't always get back to them. This restaurant is a favorite one though. Crab cakes are great, burgers, pasta, the bread that you get is WONDERFUL. Also have gone here for brunch and get... More

Salut is a upscale, yet relaxed place to sit and enjoy a meal. Their food is consistently good, the servers are helpful, and their burgers are some of my favorite in the Twin Cities. Their fries are fantastic. Did I mention that their fries are fantastic? The bar area is very small. It is the only downside to this great... More
