Wonderful atmosphere, great cocktails, great service, romantic evening. Was able to be seated early. Appetizers were great and main courses were divine. I'd definitely recommend trying this place.

Salar is an authentic and vibrant restaurant in the heart of Dayton's historic and artsy Oregon District.
South American influences create some great entree selections. They offer enough variety that there seems to be something for every taste.
The cocktail menu and wine list are as good as spot in town.
A great spot for a date, for couples night out, or for a group of friends.
They have some nice outdoor seating in the summer months, try it if the weather is just right.
A couple of other quick notes, Salar gets a little loud when the place fills up. Also, a meal here should be enjoyed, not rushed, so don't here for dinner if you don't have 90 minutes to enjoy the experience.

I've been here several times, the food is always excellent. Service is good, friendly waitstaff. Tables in the bar area are a bit crowded.

My wife and I ate at Salar last night, spent $120 and left hungry.

The atmosphere, decor, and vibe is really cool. The establishment is a little too pretentious for our Daytonian taste, but that is their niche target market. It is a taste of trendy NYC located in the Midwest. The waiter was very professional and gave outstanding customer service.

I ordered a drink for my wife, and their bar didn't have Fireball or Jack Daniels Cinnamon. We got the impression those spirits weren't upscale. This was somewhat disappointing, but the waiter was quick to give alternative suggestions.

I had the scallop entree, and my wife had the steak skewers entree. The food was presented well and tasted delightful, but the portions were appetizer size at best. Not the place for big, Midwestern, steak and potato appetites.

This wasn't our first time to Salar and won't be our last. It's a perfect place to go to impress an out of town client or guest. It's also a good break from the standard Dayton fare. It's not our go-to "cup of tea" but it might be yours.

Went there for a rare night out and loved it. The upscale menu offers lots of delicious items and the nice quiet environment was perfect for a date night. Hope to return very soon!
