The food and service is excellent, however there is no social distancing here, was elbow to elbow with diners to the side of us. It was our anniversary so it would have been nice to have more privacy.

We were in Dayton to see Hamilton for our anniversary and wanted to dine somewhere nice. Our first two picks were booked solid, so on a whim we tried Salar... SO GLAD WE DID! Reserved a spot with Open Table and included that this was a special night. The staff was amazing, the food was mind blowing, and they even gave us a nice unexpected glass of champagne to celebrate our 30 years of marriage. we loved everything we had but for me the standout was the charred ceaser salad. Hubby had the pork chops and said they were best ever!

I Took my wife to Salar for her birthday. Dan was our server. He was friendly and professional. We usually ask our server for recommendations. He was right on with his recommendations. We had the Fried Calamari appetizer. My wife had the Roasted Short Ribs, my son had Seared Scallops, and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Our meals were perfectly prepared. We shared the Tres Leches Cake which was scrumptious! The cocktail and wine menu has great selections. We were surprised how busy it was for a Thursday night. The noise level was moderate. Special thanks to our server Dan, and the kitchen staff for making our evening special. We've been going Salar for many years and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend Salar.

The ambience was stylish and comfortable but also surprisingly quiet with a full dining room. The menu has a nice variety of Peruvian, French and Mediterranean dishes, but it was also short and simple and easy to follow. We enjoyed the Seafood Empanadas, which were delicious seafood in an unexpected sweet turnover. For entrees we tried the Duck Ragu, Chilean Sea Bass and the Northern Peruvian Style Lamb Shank. They were cooked right, flavorful and tasty. The Tres Leches Cake was the perfect way to finish it off. Our server was on point, helpful with suggestions and deserving of generous gratuity. I'd highly recommend Salar.

We loved our evening dining at Salar - intimate enough that we could have a private conversation even though it was a full house. Service and food were excellent. Michael, the manager, is very personable. Gave me the most wonderful compliment about my outfit which I truly appreciated. Our favorite restaurant.

The good had excellent flavor and the scallops were cooked to perfection. Clearly a great chef in charge.
The meal arrived very shortly after it was ordered and timing was perfect between drinks and the meal.
The only thing negative was the portion as rice was the bulk of the dish as expected. I think it was a good portion for my girlfriend but an adult male would still be hungry.
I will try again and choose a different entree.

Very disappointed in the food. We spent a lot of money for a sub par meal. The atmosphere was wonderful but everything else, food and drinks, not worth the money.

Eaten there many times - but this was probably my worst experience ever. Sat in a very noisy - close tables - open area of the restaurant. Server was super nice but very slow from ordering to getting drinks - to getting appetizers - to the meal. Food overall was good as always. I had pork tenderloin and this is least favorite dish I have ever ordered. Filet was undercooked. The scallop appetizers are one of my favorite scallops in the world but $74 for 6 of them is just too pricey.

We were lucky to get a reservation through Open table the day before New Year's Eve. We sat at the back of the house in a more private room with three large groups. The bench seat we had was in need of repair. The waitress was very attentive, good service and had the whole room to serve. The room was quite noisy but not too bad. We were lucky enough to sit next to some other customers who were very charming. We so enjoyed the conversation. The food and drink took longer than expected but the conversation made up for it. The bill was a lot higher than we thought it would be since we shared a meal including the salad. We had 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine on our bill and it was over $150. We would still go again as we love the food here but it is pricey.

Salar is an amazing restaurant. This was our 3rd visit here and overall we really love the food here. I was hoping to get the short ribs but they were not on the menu tonight. Our waitress was awesome! I was a little disappointed in the lobster tail with risotto. I was expect an arugula salad based on the menu description but there were only some arugula greens mixed in the risotto. The lobster was tasty but overcooked. The risotto helped with the dryness of the lobster tail. For $67 I felt it was not nearly what it should have been. We will be back though because this was the first time I was not pleased with a meal there.
