A nice lunch break

A trip to Grand Avenue to do a little shopping and then take a break from the heat--my daughters and I stopped in for a late lunch. The atmosphere is delightful and we commented on the french cat poster! Our server was very nice and quickly relieved our hunger with 2 mini-baguettes as we looked... read more

We visited at about 5pm on a Saturday and were able to get a table on the beautiful patio. The server was attentive and knowledgeable, but not in our face. The wine selection was incredible. I felt like I was sitting at a cafe in Northern California wine country. The happy hour menu had several yummy choices for just 5... More

Had a date night with my husband and decided to try something new. Really glad we chose Salut on Grand Avenue. The service was great and the food was thoughtfully prepared. We started with the watermelon and tomato salad and it was fresh and delicious. I had the Steak Diane and my husband had a specialty burger, both of were... More

Met girlfriends for drinks and dinner. Good Happy Hour for wine. Ordered dinner from the menu, it was good but not delicious.😕

There were four people in our party and we arrived rather late on a Tuesday evening. Even so, we were told it would be about a 20 minute wait and that was very close to our actual wait. We ordered a few different appetizers and shared them. Overall, everything was quite good. Service was good - attentive, but not overly... More

Awesome music. Beautiful art on the walls. Excellent food and service! My husband and I were in St. Paul for two nights and this was our final dinner selection. He is a calamari freak and it was a special occasion, so I found this restaurant by searching for places nearby that had his favorite on the menu. There is nice... More

Salut is a great venue for Happy Hour. There is a range of great priced foods and drinks. I would recommend the popcorn, and then whatever else suits your fancy. Friendly staff and a great view for people watching on Grand Ave. Another perk of this crowded area is that they have a parking lot.

Had dinner there the other evening and was delighted with not only the food, but the servers were delightful. Happy smiles, not too chatty, and quick to fulfill our requests without hovering. Thanks! Our meals were good...not great. I expect better bread in restaurants that label themselves French...theirs felt standard food service issue. Ordered escargot...a favorite. Woefully under seasoned and... More

My first time at Salut. I was a little nervous because of some of the mixed reviews about the quality of the food. Our service was great. We sat outside on the patio, which was beautiful and so comfortable. Our service was great. We literally got our food to our table 5 minutes after ordering it on a Saturday night.... More

Salut serves the best french onion soup (we've tried) in the Twin Cities. Salut has ample outdoor seating and cozy indoor seating.
