Salute is a fabulous restaurant that my husband and I often frequent when we are in the downtown Hartford area. The service is excellent, and the owners try to make it around to different tables to inquire about the dining experience. It is a very busy place, so making reservations is critical during peak hours. However, it is worth it to go there. From the decor to the food to the service, it's a wonderful addition to Hartford's restaurants. Their happy hour is also great, especially in the summer when you can utilize the outdoor patio!
In addition to going with my husband, I have also gone there on double dates, with my family, and with a bunch of my friends. It is a wonderful venue that can suit many different needs as diners. It is also great that they validate your parking and you pay half price ($3.50) if you park in the garage!
