We have created a unique dining experience with two outdoor patios, two full bars, a main dining room with full-wall windows looking out onto the Historic Oregon District, an intimate lounge space, and a private dining room.

We were at Salar on a very busy New Years Eve, with a party of 10. The service was excellent, as was the food. Cocktails are amazingly good. Wine list needs some help, but not bad overall. Would highly recommend, and I will be back

We went on date night for my first time at Salar and it was incredible! The service was wonderful and she gave recommendations for food and drinks. The cocktails, wine, appetizers and dinner was wonderful! I look forward to returning and trying more menu items!

This was the first time back to Salar since the fire. The ambience in the restaurant was even better than before. The waiter and staff were very attentive. Unfortunately, the scallop special was disappointing and overpriced. The scallops were ok but the sides had very...More
