Salut surprised me by having some of my favorite items from back home. On top of that the waiter was top notch for service and went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect. I am a martini girl and ordered their “Smokin' Salute Cosmo” which was beautifully presented over dry ice so it was truly smoking. It... More

We are always pleased with the service and food at Salut. This most recent visit for brunch was no exception. It's an order off the menu brunch with plenty of tasty selections at reasonable prices. We have also had pre-concert dinner here and they are very attentive to the need for timely service. Lot or on street parking make it... More

I went here with my girls for the awesome hot chocolate and was there also during happy hour. I enjoyed the hamburger sliders. I didn't see the hot chocolate on the menu but you can still ask for it. It is like they make in France with cream, etc.

The service was top shelf, and my Chicken dinner was moist , flavorful, and fall off the bone. My wife had mussels cooked perfectly. The prices were fair. I would recommend to anyone.

Ambiance and food. The menu here reminded me that they were about french food. The portion sizes were smaller than what you would find at other restaurants. I appreciated that. Outside of these two observation, the food is just as good as comparable restaurants and the ambiance allows great conversation.

We had an excellent first time experience dining at Salut on Grand Ave in St Paul. Classy but relaxed atmosphere and attentive, friendly service. However, the quality of the food is the star here. I had the filet that was cooked to perfection and had started with the escargot which was as good as any I have ever experienced. Can't... More
