Was skeptical when we walked up just a normal little bar, but found out it had an outside entertainment area with dining. Great food. Loved this little gem.

Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff, always run into someone I know at Shallots. Menu selection has lots of fish, but fish is not my favorite. Food nicely seasoned and good sauces. I recently had some delicious scallops over linguini. Great appetizers- Try them all and...More

Wonderful food and drink. The bar was a fun local place to hang out. Be aware of going to dinner after 8pm. Call first. I would highly recommend this spot.

Greeted by the chef/owner who walked us thru the menu. Waiter equally as nice and helpful. We went with the pork, beef ravioli, red quinoa salad, hamburger and homemade desserts. All super yummy. Highly recommend.

Dining at Shallots was a pleasant experience. Prices are in the high range - but we were not disappointed in the dinners. They were tasty & the portions were large. The chocolate cake was delicious and huge - definitely big enough to share.

The various selections ( bison steak with Blue Cheese butter, shrimp, trout) were interesting when looking at the menu but were just ok. The bar produced outstanding drinks, especially the old fashion and margaritas. The wait staff was excellent.

It could be a really nice place, but they need to get a different cook or give him a little more training?

Came to Salida for dinner to get out of a downpour. Used Trip adviser. Shallots was rated 4.5 stars. It was a wonderful surprise dinner for a small town. The owners serve and prepare meals. The lamb was perfect. The appetizer of Pepperdevil was delicious.
