The place looked inviting from the outside, and the decor inside was charming as well. So far, so good. The menu was French bistro funky, and did not take itself too seriously, so I was looking forward to my meal. Unfortunately, the steak sandwich, advertised as "beef tenderloin tips, caramelized onions, Swiss cheese," etc. was tough, tasteless, and below fast-food... More

Our friends go here sometimes. We were a group of nine and everyone seemed to enjoy. My food was tasty, maybe a bit salty. The menu offers a wide variety of stuff.

Did some comparative wine tasting; Will worked nicely to split the pours in two glasses and deliver without the reveal. Had some good appetizers; felt (more than) a bit like in a french bar. Will be coming back for food. Started in outdoor seating; headed in after some rain to have second round inside.

Out St. Paul friends had visited and recommended this. Happy hour 3-6:00 pm offers snacks that can pass for dinner. Fresh shellfish is offered. Let your server know if you are in a hurry, my group was not and they allowed us to hang around.

OK, Ginger Ale. Boring right? Not at Salut in St. Paul. Never tasted anything like it! That said the food and service were also top notch. There were three generations of us dining for brunch. I had the Banana Crepes, others in our family sampled a variety of other dishes. All enjoyed their food. The restaurant is spotless, and while... More

Great value for happy hour and very good value for dinner. This is our most common "go to" place for dinner out. Reliable and consistent; wait staff is very professional and follows up on requests. This is also a family friendly location. Our son loves the French fries--and they are indeed good (sometimes could be hotter and restaurant will follow... More

Went here after bailing from another restaurant. Salut atmosphere is wonderful, not too noisy, music playing, you can hear your dining partners. Food was excellent as usual, great service. Highly recommend for when you want a relaxing atmosphere, quality food and service with a smile. It's a little spendy but worth it.

I'd seen this place on Grand, and thought of it as a bar more than a restaurant. The motif is an American bar in Paris. The food is really good. The atmosphere is casual. Did I mention the food? I had a crab cake Oscar - poached egg on top, over asparagus, with Bernaisse sauce. omg. That and a pint... More

Had brunch there today. The food was good, mimosas overpriced at $8 for 6 ounces but they were good and available in pineapple, orange and mango. We had breakfast food and lunch cuisine. The young server acted like we were an inconvenience and she felt entitled to a big tip just because she was there. She couldn't wait to pick... More

One of my favorite restaurants - Salut has a pet friendly patio and great food (pomme frites, hangar steak and burger royal are my go to items). Only complaint is the slow service. We have been going to Salut since 2008 - nothing has changed in those 9 years (good food, horribly slow service). If you are in a hurry... More
