Met friends for happy hour. Very nice that you can sit in either the bar or restaurant section and enjoy their happy hour. They offer good drink prices and some interesting appetizer options (food was just okay though, not great). Loved the space--roomy and many booths and tables not crammed close together. The big parking lot is a plus as... More

The food was great and so was the service. For the price of the Amazing food you get what you pay for. Amazing staff.

We've eaten at both Salut restaurants (Saint Paul and Edina) on several occasions and always leave feeling very satisfied. Whether we have steak or a seafood dish, the food is well-prepared. We love the warm baguette that the server brings out first thing, and the wine list has a good variety of wines from France and the U.S. On our... More

Four of us recently had dinner at Salut and found this restaurant to be an excellent choice. The atmosphere is pleasant mix of contemporary and traditional design and we found the staff to be very good. The menu is varied and offers something for everyone and we ordered 4 different entree's and found each to be delightful. Definitely a place... More

We've been to Salut more times than I can count. They have attentive staff and the food is consistent. The bar side is good for a more informal but still good experience. Some of the fish dishes can be pricey but they also offer a happy hour from 3-6 which makes it pretty affordable for anyone.

We came here on a Friday night with friends and two of their kids-one grown and one who is 11. Everyone found something delicious. I had the roasted half chicken with mashed potatoes instead of fries, some had the hangar steak and another had the croque madame. All were delightful. It is very similar to a french Brasserie I went... More

Met a friend for lunch at Salute and Salute delivered! Service was attentive and friendly. The food was tasty and the menu interesting. Drink selection was good and the overall pricing was fair. The atmosphere was fun and the decor was nice. Outdoor patio looked inviting, can't wait to try it out next summer. Nice spot along historic Grand Ave.... More

This restaurant is great. The food is amazing and so is the service. When it's warmer out, you can sit outside which is really pleasant. I recommend the garlic shrimp and the chicken club!

I highly recommend the crab cake appetizer. It is the best crab cake I've ever had. This restaurant is an adorable, quaint restaurant. The food is a bit pricier but fair for the food served. Good service every time I went.

Yesterday three friends and I had lunch at this fine restaurant on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. Although quite busy both on the patio and indoors, a parking lot had a few empty places plus limited parking on the street. Without mentioning the name on the reservation, the host spotted me as a woman waiting for friends and escorted me... More
