We've been to Salut more times than I can count. They have attentive staff and the food is consistent. The bar side is good for a more informal but still good experience. Some of the fish dishes can be pricey but they also offer a happy hour from 3-6 which makes it pretty affordable for anyone.

We came here on a Friday night with friends and two of their kids-one grown and one who is 11. Everyone found something delicious. I had the roasted half chicken with mashed potatoes instead of fries, some had the hangar steak and another had the croque madame. All were delightful. It is very similar to a french Brasserie I went... More

Met a friend for lunch at Salute and Salute delivered! Service was attentive and friendly. The food was tasty and the menu interesting. Drink selection was good and the overall pricing was fair. The atmosphere was fun and the decor was nice. Outdoor patio looked inviting, can't wait to try it out next summer. Nice spot along historic Grand Ave.... More

This restaurant is great. The food is amazing and so is the service. When it's warmer out, you can sit outside which is really pleasant. I recommend the garlic shrimp and the chicken club!

I highly recommend the crab cake appetizer. It is the best crab cake I've ever had. This restaurant is an adorable, quaint restaurant. The food is a bit pricier but fair for the food served. Good service every time I went.

Yesterday three friends and I had lunch at this fine restaurant on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. Although quite busy both on the patio and indoors, a parking lot had a few empty places plus limited parking on the street. Without mentioning the name on the reservation, the host spotted me as a woman waiting for friends and escorted me... More

Every trip we make to St. Paul, Minnesota includes a late lunch stop at Salut Bar American. You can dine on the patio, in the bar or in the dining room. We like the coziness of the bar and the good service that we receive there. We've experienced good service in all three locations however. Full bar and a wide... More

It can be difficult to find parking on Grand Ave so going to Salut eliminates that challenge.....they have a parking lot. Great patio/outdoor dining area with a variety of table types and some with umbrellas. Entry to patio is bordered with planters of lush fresh herbs. Luncheon menu had great variety. I chose onion soup and a crab cake. Soup... More

Two of us had a 7:00 p.m. Saturday night reservation for a birthday celebration dinner. Overall, we liked Salut very much, but were disappointed in the quality of the service in the dining room for dinner. We experienced very slow service-had to get up and talk with the hostess and tell her our server had not yet arrived at our... More

Beautiful patio; great waitress; good lunch specials. My husband and I toured the Hill mansion and were looking for someplace for lunch that wasn't a chain restaurant. The gazpacho was delicious and the BLT was excellent. And the bonus was the parking lot! We're visiting from Chicago and will definitely go back!

Thank Marcia R
