Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff

During lunch hour it is hard to find parking (but actually in St Paul if you go to next street there is always space there). Staff was friendly but when we showed up at 11:45pm on Sunday we were asked if we had reservations. I was afraid we would had to find something else but fortunately they... read more

From fresh seafood to classic French culinary delights you cannot go wrong at Salut! The service is first class, friendly and focused on the customer. The food is incredible, on our last visit we experienced the Monday night special, Julia Child's Art of French cooking where the chef chooses one of the many recipes from the famous cookbook. We started... More

Fun atmosphere, great food! Prices are a little high but the quality of the food makes it worth it. The patio in the Spring/Summer/Fall is the best around.

Came here with my Mom for lunch mid-week before making a museum stop. Located on Grand Ave., but with available parking, Salut is a great spot. The interior is very open and a bit deceiving as it is much bigger than it looks from the outside. There is also an oyster bar that I would be willing to try in... More

If you are looking for an appetizer that will stun you with flavor and perfect texture, you need to try the calamari at Salut. Having lived in California and traveled both coasts I always order calamari. Salut in Edina and las week at this location serve some of the best and it is in the frozen tundra...who would have guessed?... More

My son and I visited Salut for the second time. We had had great memories of it from a year ago. We were not disappointed. The chicken Caesar salad is incredible. My son had a burger, which he thinks is one of the best he's ever had. Service is excellent at Salut and the atmosphere is divine. I highly recommend!

I ate supper here with a couple friends and I was pleasantly surprised. Drink and food menu is diverse suiting a wide range of prices and palatte. I had a cup of lamb curry soup with my sandwich...it was amazing! I would have simply ordered a bowl for supper if I would have known how delicious it was going to... More

We wanted a nice dinner before attending a concert in downtown St Paul and researched several options. We selected Salut because we wanted to try something new and were very pleasantly surprised. Dinner was quite good although the food was not very seasoned. I had the half Chicken and my friend had the pork and we shared the asparagus which... More

Great place to meet friends for a casual dinner. The food options are plentiful, but the portion sizes aren't the most generous (at least ours weren't). The staff is helpful and the water glasses are kept filled.
