One of our favorites in Edina-- the food, the service and the atmosphere! We all had fish or seafood; salmon, walleye (sauce was a little rich), crab, and everything was excellent. Service was attentive but didn't rush us. Wine list was complete and appropriate. It is a fun and festive place with loads of French charm.

Fantastic location in the heart of 50th and France. Nice section of outdoor seating. Have been here many times and still don't love it. Breakfast/brunch best meal of the day. There is rarely a wait.

Have been enjoying dinner here over the years. Wine is reasonably priced. Food is very fresh. Service has always been above normal. Portions are big for a French restaurant.

Salut's menu really is great for mixed groups of eclectic and traditional diners. They have the standard herb roasted half chicken, but more exotic dishes as well such as spring pea fettuccine, (Those are our favorite dishes). There is a special always on Monday called "Mondays with Julia" that features a dish of Julia Childs. They have a great bar.... More

Delicious filet, served with both garlic butter and bernaise. Wonderful wine and beer list support other great choices. Learned that Monday night the chef prepares dishes based on Julia Child's recipes.

Classic French Bistro with the addition of an Oyster Bar. Oyster bar is not something that can be easily found in Minneapolis. This is perhaps the best. The frittes are classic. The moules Muniere (Mussels) are a delight. Relaxed dining atmosphere. Good selection of beers and wines as you might imagine. Creative specials.

We were looking for a place to have a glass of wine and bread when we came upon Salut. The restaurant has nice narrow patio facing France Avenue. The wine selection is unique, offering several grades of house wines. There is a good selection of small plates and in addition to our order we got a free baguette. Our waiter... More
