A relaxing evening

I was a little hesitant to eat at Salut, because I thought it might be some kind of fancy French restaurant. However, the added "Bar Americain" part of the restaurant put me at ease.

Initially I wasn't too excited about Salut because I thought it was too expensive. Relative to nearby restaurants it is definitely on the higher end (within 1 mile or so). Over the last couple years though it has become a favorite. They do an excellent job with their mixed drinks. Their syrups are made by hand which is nice and... More

My wife and I ate hear last weekend and I have to say I am not much of a fan of French food but our meal was really good! Not the priciest place in town And the service was pretty good.. I tried the hanger steak and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had the pork\pasta dish and loved... More

Excellent muscles and a good oyster bar. Friendly staff. Des pommes frites that are almost as good as the humor one can derive from hearing the name mangled in good Minnesotan. Drink prices are not a bargain, but neither are they a rip off.

You should not be disappointed with whatever you order from an America hamburger to a seafood crepe. There for lunch today and had steak tartare appetizer, French onion soup. The baguette is fresh and crispy on the outside. You will order seconds of the bread. Nice selections of wines as well of beer. The desserts were delightful. For top notch... More

We were a little apprehensive because the place appeared kind of "trendy". We requested a booth when making a reservation, because the hostess indicated it could get a little loud and a booth would be quieter. The place was packed on a Friday night, but our booth was ready for us and were more than pleasantly surprised by the extensive... More

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.
