    I love this restaurant. We had a party of 11 during this visit and the staff worked with me to stay within my budget, providing great family style appetizers and a selection of wines along with ordering entrees across the menu. The service was good - when we arrived, the appetizers were set on the table. Considering our late start, that was welcome. No one's glass was empty. This is the second larger party I've brought to Salute and I would do it again. Most importantly, everyone commented on the great time they had and the food.

    Have had dinner at Salute many times. Their pasta is fresh and highly recommend. Was there for lunch with a client and was extremely disappointed. I had the scallops which were so overcooked they were practically inedible. My client ordered the fish special and also said the fish was dry and overcooked. My first bad experience there. Think I will stick to the pasta.

    Stick with the pasta dishes, and I recommend the minestrone soup. My only critique is the wine pour is a half glass. When you're paying $15+ for a glass of wine make it a full pour.

    I thought the food was very good, but our waiter seemed a little stuffy. Maybe there was a language barrier, but the restaurant was virtually empty and he seemed kind of pushy. Otherwise it's a beautiful place. Great for dates and quiet ambience.

    I had the minestrone soup, which was very tasty, as it was finished with a little fresh pesto. My spouse had the veggie burger, and she enjoyed it. I had the pasta with bolognese sauce and also enjoyed it.

    Wonderful night at Salute! The staff was excellent and took care of us like family. We were large table celebrating a birthday so we were probably a little louder than the average table but still what a fun night! The food was prepared to perfection and special orders and arrangements were no problem. They served us some antipasto family style, delicious! The barrata is to die for! And the stuffed cherry peppers too! Entrees were equally good and there was not a scrap of food left on anyone's plate, even with the nice size portion. Even the bartender was a doll making us special drinks and coming over to chat and tell us the recipe!. I recommend if you want authentic Italian in a stylish, yet relaxed atmosphere, you won't be disappointed.

    The food is pretty good, but is not quite what it used to be. The staff is very friendly and hard-working, but sometimes seems a bit overwhelmed. Not a great room for a serious business lunch -- it's pretty loud. Still in all, it's a longtime favorite and the bar is great.

    The cost is high even by Manhattan standards. The server at first did not want to take my restaurant.com gift certificate. I have read reviews after my experience and other people have had this issue with other discounts. The food is only average. $27 for pasta with a small amount of meat and not a tremendous amount of flavor. My husband had pasta with shrimp and was not overly impressed. We will not be returning.

    I went on a quite Labor Day so it's hard to know what Salute is like when it's busy. The service staff was attentive. My Bloody Mary was quite good. The medium rare hamburger was mediocre, rather dry and not quite medium rare. The beet salad was delicious. It was not a bad experience but I'd have to be in the neighborhood to consider trying it again.
