Ate dinner here last week. We both had the sea bass special. It was very good would compare to any in the city. Service was excellent. We did not have reservations but was seated in less than twenty minutes. Our server was very attentive, she was there when needed without being overbearing. Reasonable prices for the area. Would recommend

We had rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at Salut. Two thumbs up! Great place. Food is wonderful. Staff is really nice and friendly. We have about 30 guests there and everyone was happy with food and facility and atmosphere at Salut. SPECIAL thanks go to Private Dining Manager, Larissa La Mere and our server Kyle, who's done just excellent... More

Enjoyed patio dining during Happy Hour. Quiet and relaxing. Not a lot of choices for Happy Hour food, but what was offered was very good (sliders, shrimp po'boys and onion rings were excellent). Our server was friendly and patient with all our questions. We didn't feel rushed to leave once we were finished eating. I would eat here again.

Salut offers excellent food at a fair price point. The restaurant is located in a beautiful setting, whether you dine inside or on the patio, and is situated nicely in the heart of the Grand Ave shopping district.

Great brunch on a Saturday. Just wishing that the regular lunch menu was also available. Great crepes and quiche. Salut Americain was very tasty and we needed three of them as well a Côte de Rhone. Recommended.

My wife enjoys the outdoor patio at Salut in the summer. We ordered crab cakes for an appetizer and bouillabaisse and herb chicken for entries. Wine was a Pinot, Evenham from Willamette. Wine was not served for sometime until the manager brought the bottle to the table. The bread was already eaten. Then the crab cakes followed by the two... More

The good: Salut Bar Americain on Grand Avenue in St Paul has a beautiful location, and their outdoor seating area is lovely on a summer evening. The service is very good. The rest: the most inexpensive wine, a step below Two Buck Chuck, is over $6/glass. The food is, at best, inconsistent. The chicken on my cobb salad was so... More

Went to this place on a whim after wedding shoppe down the road. The place is a little pricier than your average but it is Grand Ave so it comes with the territory. Everything was delicious, except the salad dressing but I can let that slide, based on how good everything else was. Try the frog legs, they are surprisingly... More

A coworker who used to live on Grand Ave. recommended this place to me. She knows I love French food, and when I saw the menu I was sold. I took my parents out for lunch and we all loved it! My mom & I had the walleye meuniere and my dad had the french country omelet. The walleye was... More

I think if our service had been better, the food would have tasted better. This is an example of how the service can set the tone for the entire meal. We headed to Salut for brunch. The menu is solid -- typical bistro brunch and breakfast items. Our waiter was a little snarky. Rather than answering legitimate questions about the... More
