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

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.

Trendy Grand Avenue in St. Paul is populated door-to-door with restaurants, cafes and coffee shops with indoor and out-door seating, so we picked one at random for mid-afternoon appetizer. We made the right choice. Baked crispy brie covered with pistachios and drizzled with fig jelly ($7 for one) was superb. We added another crispy brie, a couple glasses of cold... More

I have probably eaten here more than any other restaurant in St Paul. Why? The wait staff is always cheerful, accommodating, professional, and timely. It doesn't matter if the place is packed or quiet, it is always great service. That alone is enough for me. But wait, there's more! The food is excellent. Everything I have ordered, from Burgers and... More
