Anniversary Dinner

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... read more

We made a reservation online and when we arrived , the hostess stated she didn't receive it. She then went into a long explanation about why she didn't have a table. Either fix your online reservation system or shut it down.

Received a dinner for two as a father's day gift and enjoyed the meal and the experience. We had the Crab Cakes and Shrimp and Grits--both were well prepared and very tasty. Service was excellent and the seating was roomy. We got there early ahead of the crowd- had reservations. Everything on menu look great. Little pricy without the gift.... More

This is my kind a restaurant to dine out. Very friendly, excellent service and food. I ordered the special which was fillet of prime rib, rare. It arrived and although tasty, a bit over cooked. Our server, Steve came by to check on us and noticed before I even had a chance to comment that it did not look rare.... More

I went on a Sunday evening with wife and two of our friends. We're all foodies, and have no trouble passing plates around the table so we can all sample our various dishes. We ordered three small plates as starters; the beef empanadas, the ribeye medallions in what I believe to be a brandy cream sauce, and duck foie gras... More

Sit outside when the weather is good. The interior is beautiful, the solid mahogany bar is from the Blakely Hotel in Philadelphia and the space was the largest VFW Officer's Club after WWI. The filet is amazing and I cannot veer from that choice, as it is consistently delicious. The meat and three appetizer is uniquely good. We visit for... More

Good, professional service combined with excellent food made for a very special dining experience. Can't say enough about the food: beautifully presented, and so very delicious. Southern with an elegant twist. Wonderful!

I'm not sure why this place isn't higher on the list of places to eat in Columbia! Hands down, it is the best meal/service I've had! The steaks are cooked perfectly every time, and the menu changes to reflect what they can get locally. I haven't had bad service at this place ever, and I've been many times. I would... More
