A great casual French bistro to dine at in edina. Service was fair but food was superb! Ask for a booth so you won't be crowded.

I was intrigued with the Monday evening special when the chef cooks Julia Child. It was a delicious shrimp and mushroom crepe. The flavor was extraordinary. The flavors were a perfect blend without being heavy. Our server was a delight. She was as into serving us our food as we were into eating it. I like the fact she felt... More

I was surprised to see other reviewers comment on poor service. Our party of four had great service, although it was a Sunday evening and not terribly busy. To a person, we all had great food. Try the French onion soup, escargot, hanger steak, and frites.

I have loved this restaurant since it opened. I used to live in Edina and would eat here several times a month. After moving, I made a point of visiting every time I came up to the Cities. No more........ I stopped in today for lunch and was sorely disappointed. My waiter took my wine order. Ten minutes later, he... More

They changed the menu again but I got lucky with a really good sandwich, the avocado tartine. My friend had a grilled cheese which she did not like at all. Barely any cheese and too many vegetables, odd ones too like asparagus. She ended up picking off all the onions and asparagus and that's how we found out there was... More

I've been here over a dozen times and please do yourself a favor and don't dine here without ordering the French onion burger. Now...onto this visit... Came in on a weeknight for dinner with my hubby. We shared the crab cake, French onion burger and side of mushrooms. It was the perfect amount of food and we washed it down... More

Liked the menu offerings, food wasn't great / wasn't horrible. I don't complain to managers or try to get food for fre and didn't here, but won't be coming back. I ordered a cheeseburger cooked to medium and frites. When a place makes it a point to cook meat to temperature, you expect to get what you ordered, the spike... More

Bar Salut was once one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Great menu, good drink selection, great ambiance, and a lovely location. My experience this past weekend was a significant departure from my previous visits to this restaurant. We booked our reservation for 5 people in advance through OpenTable and were seated promptly on-time. A gentlemen quickly provided us... More

Stopped by on a whim. Excellent service and food, good choices for all. One had the duck which was very good. I had the bouillabaisse which was great and very much king crab, muscles, scallops and clams. It was by far the best bouillabaisse I have ever had. The chicken was very tender. The best house red wine was very... More

We've been here twice now. If you want delicious escargot, this is the place to go. We both had the duck, which was really good and of course the complementary fresh French bread tops it all off. Would go back again for sure.
