Great dining experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had the scallops and aged NY strip. We had the crab cakes for an appetizer and they were great. Our server did a splendid job. Saluda's is perfect for any occasion. They can accommodate drinks after work to a meal with friends to a company dinner. We always enjoy... read more

Had the seared scallops - tender. Need to tell waitress if you wish them to be more cooked. Need more sauce on the side and lemons or limes. One person had the grouper special. One other had the shrimp & grits, which disappeared very quickly ! The small dinner salads were basic and fresh. Appetizer, good, flavorable, mild crab cake... More

Top notch in every way. We actually lingered at our table for hours and were never rushed. Very nice wine choices. The menu is limited to maybe 6 or 7 entrees but it was still difficult making a decision because everything sounded wonderful and tasted equally as good. Presentation was superb as well. I highly recommend this restaurant for business... More

Four of us were celebrating a birthday dinner and were seated in the corner with views on 2 sides of Five Points. Stephen approached us as soon as we were seated and provided outstanding service and knowledge. I ordered the Sweet Tea pork chop with the special tomato salad and it was excellent with enough leftovers for another meal. All... More

A good fine dining choice in the five points area of downtown Columbia. Parking can be a bit problematic so go early if you've made reservations. The four of us enjoyed sharing the appetizers and mains brought to our table,the portions were large with plenty left over for a to-go box. I would recommend the Shrimp n Grits and it... More

The service was excellent. If I could score our waiter higher than a 5, I would. We were there on July 3rd and had reservations. This restaurant had been recommended to us many times and it was the first time we had visited. It was clean and there was enough space between tables. This is a high end restaurant with... More

Saluda's is located in the heart of the 5 Points district of Columbia with a splendid vies of the fountain and activity of the area. The staff treated us royally as we had gathered to celebrate the 56th anniversary of my in-laws. The food was marvelous from the appetizers through the desserts!

My husband surprised me by taking me to Saluda's for our 14th Anniversary. Everything was wonderful. We had a great outside table overlooking the happenings in the 5 Points area. We had Shrimp & Grits and the Duck breastfeeding dinner. Nothing but good remarks from us. The service was wonderful. We would definitely go back again.
