“I miss Jessie's gin drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

An update to my prior reviews- don't get me wrong - this is still my favorite upscale dining restaurant on the island. However, I felt like this past trip they were missing a step. The food was still delicious but the atmosphere was just not as cool, just not as intimate. There was a couple there, I'm assuming locals, who were celebrating an anniversary. The owner brought them champagne; the chef personally delivered their meals. There were only 5 occupied tables in the restaurant that night but neither the chef nor the owner stopped at any other table to ask about the meal,etc. They would have only received positive feedback so I'm surprised they didn't take an extra minute for the personal touch.
We will come back in hopes that things change again for the better.

“Salud Bistro...excellent choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great food, had the Greek Duck and it was amazing...wishing we would have gone back before we left the island for another taste!

Ambiance was great too, very relaxing and quiet with knowledgeable and friendly wait staff.

Clean restaurant and well worth the visit, so glad we stopped by...

“A Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Salud Bistro came recommended by friends and we're glad we listened! Don't judge this restaurant by its exterior, it's adorable inside. We were greeted by the owner and our server. We were seated promptly and well taken care of. The beverage selection is great. We enjoyed a HUGE mezze platter, the mac&cheese (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED), and the pork tenderloin. The mezze selection included 6 dips which were all interesting. Even those which weren't our favorites had some thoughtful flavors. The mac & cheese is RICH, but was a fun little dish. After two big appetizers, sharing an entree was easy. The pork was tender, flavorful, and just a little rare.
Zak, our waiter was wonderfully knowledgeable and attentive. We left full and happy, and will be going back if we ever get back to STX.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We were uncertain when we drove into the parking lot and walked into the restaurant. The building is metal. Our initial impression was that we might consider going somewhere else. Our group was seated and we all immediately changed our opinion! The waiters were so attentive and friendly and the menu was creative and intriguing! The appetizers, entrees and wine selections were superb! It was a wonderful time. The truffled mac and cheese and the duck and gnocchi were divine! We definitely recommend this restaurant. The chef and staff are outstanding!

“What a find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We have been to St Croix several times but have never dined at Salud. Last night we decided to give it a try and had a wonderful evening. The interior of the restaurant is warm and inviting and the menu innovative. We split an order of house made tagliatelle with a tomato, artichoke, pea pesto and asiago as a primi and had the fish of the day (local Wahu) as our entree. The flavors were new and surprising, the food cooked to perfection. The only distraction was the music which was very good but just a little too loud for the size of the dining room. We will be back!
