This restaurant is located on the second floor with a great view of Five Points in Columbia, SC. Our server was exceptional. The grilled pork chop was the largest one I've ever seen and very tender. The bacon sweet potato hash was so good it should be on some top 10 list for Southern foods. An excellent meal and experience!

This is a great space for fine dining. If the weather is good, dining on the veranda is highly recommended. Dining inside is not too noisy, it's well-lit and the food is great. The steaks are highly recommended. The Draft Beer selection is not well-balanced - for example, two IPAs, no Porters or Stouts in January. The Bottled beer list... More

I've eaten at Saluda's several times while in Columbia. My favorite menu dish is the shrimp & grits, which is spicy and flavorful and topped with a fried green tomato. I also enjoy the fish specials they offer. Nice offering of appetizers and desserts. The dark wood interior and white tablecloths present a nice dim atmosphere. Wait staff has always... More

This is one of my favorite places in Columbia. It can be expensive. Came here for 2017 Restaurant week with 4 other couples. Service was excellent and the food was fabulous. I had the apple cider and sage brined pork chop. We also had the shrimp and grits, and the daily pasta special (fettuccine with steak and mushroom in a... More

This restaurant was the location of our office holiday party and it was gorgeous! We reserved the room upstairs and it comfortably held 30 people. I had the shrimp and grits entrée and it was delicious!! The wait staff, bartenders and other staff members were very attentive and friendly. It is directly over a Starbucks which I wasn't expecting but... More

From the other reviews, I was expecting a more palatable meal. The fried green tomatoes were average and that was the best of the items. The pork belly had the consistency of pulled barbeque, but not as much flavor as barbeque. The sauce was ketchup!! The special pasta was quite bland. At least use spiced sausage. The wait staff was... More

We attended another restaurant the other night that has really good food but is extremely busy. It was not as expensive as Saluda's admittedly but I could see the contrast between a really fine experience and one that is more hurried and almost competitive in terms of finding a place to sit and feeling that we can really enjoy the...

Absolutely incredible food, service and atmosphere! We had the filet mignon and the lamb and both were fantastic. Beautiful view also, over looking the Five Points fountain. I have no idea why we haven't been here sooner, but we will definitely be back.

I've lived in Columbia since 2009 and had never been to Saluda's. Everyone told me it was THE fine dining of Columbia so I just assumed that I could not afford it. That was a huge mistake. The pricing is similar to other local restaurants but oh so much better. Our waitress, Jessica, was wonderful too. She let me try... More
