Great service. Fresh food. Creative combinations and classic fare. Hard to find quality like this in a small town but here it is.

We almost waited for a table at Fritz's and should have. Nothing was particularly good -- for instance, the lamb was fairly fatty, overcooked for medium rare, and pretty bland. A garden salad almost seemed like a cafeteria salad. The service was slow -- about 35 minutes maybe after we ordered? The owner/chef (I'm assuming) came by and asked how... More

We were going through town and decided to look at the historic downtown for somewhere to eat when we spotted Shallots. It looked like where the locals came to eat, relax and converse.

The food was good. The mimosas were good. The bartender was a hoot. I would recommend this place. If we are ever back in Salida, we will eat here again.

Excellent ingredients for both plates were marred by cold plate and at best, lukewarm food, Waitress was advised but didn't care or offer to re-heat or replace.

We stopped in to what we thought was a nice establishment and had dinner. It was a very busy Saturday night. Got seated at the bar and we decided to eat there instead of waiting for a table which was fine. Had a nice cocktail and received our food. My steak was suppose to be medium but had no color...

Been there twice, Great burgers and really like their homemade Mayo. Mostly generated toward the hippy / yuppie crowd.
