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

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
