Nice experience

We have been here twice. The service has been good, no waiting for tables, but, we did arrive for an early dinner both times, before 6pm. Try the beef carpaccio, and the frog legs from the appetizer list. Both are very good. The burgers and steaks are juicy and flavorful. The oysters tasted fresh... read more

My family met another family here after a film nearby. I could not get past the atmosphere to enjoy the food. My boyfriend had the pomme frites and dinner salad after a film and while the salad was a perfect dinner companion, the portions were beyond overly generous and the prices seem unnecessary. They even have a very expensive shellfish... More

On a recent Friday night, my wife and I had dinner and were truly disappointed. We were seated promptly for our 6 pm reservation and served water and bread timely, but the server didn't show up for maybe 15 minutes blaming a new computer system. We ordered the chicken roulade and the Friday night special which included soup, Shepard's pie... More

This has been our favorite restaurant for 5 years and we usually eat here 2-3 times a month. We just had such a bad experience that we will never go back. It took 25 minutes to get our salads and our meal was served 5 minutes after we got our salads. We asked for drinks when our meal was served... More

Salut is a local gem that will quickly become your favorite, whether for a quick bite or a lingering special meal out. The food is amazingly fresh, unique and served with a smile. They specialize in quasi-French cuisine which they offer without the attitude. Great oysters, amazing bread and wonderful small and large plate options.

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Food is excellent and service likewise. Busy and crowded but noise level isn't too bad.

We've visited Salut dozens of times since it opened, with friends, couples and children, as well as for a quick meal before a movie or other stop. Each time my expectation has been high because of the location, selections, staff presentation and general decor of the restaurant. Unfortunately each time it has been on average just average tasting, with an... More

After a movie in Edina on a Friday night, we decided to go to Salut. Made reservations for 7:15 and glad we did. The wait would have been 45 minutes. We were seated in a booth in the bar area. Water and bread arrived quickly...a nice, salty baguette in a paper sack accompanied by soft, sweet butter. I could live... More

Have been here numerous times for dinner and patio season - great food, usually good service. Today we stopped by at an admittedly odd time - 3 p.m. While our server was able to confirm we could order a simple meal off the dinner menu, she was unable or unwilling to continue that level of service. She didn't follow up... More

The service is always solid and the food is always good. If you want a bowl of soup or a salad, you're covered at Salut. If you want a three course meal for lunch, they have that, too. The Salut Bleu salad is wonderful and very satisfying. The soups are very good and with the fresh baguette, are a satisfying... More
