Service was excellent upon entering the restaurant and continued through the end of our brunch. Servers Cassie and Zach (in training) were personable and attentive. Brunch offering was just right and the food and drinks were outstanding. Highly recommend.

The food was amazing! Had the filet and my wife had the salmon. Both fantastic dishes cooked to perfection. The smoked margaritas were also amazing.

Great food and excellent service. Each person in our party of six ordered something different and everyone said their food was delicious. Our server didn’t miss a beat.

My partner and I waited for 35 minutes at our table for anything resembling food or drink. Our server brought us a small plate of pita chips and hummus, which we had not ordered, and SMALL glasses of water.

We ordered drinks. We ordered food. But after these 35 minutes of nothing, we left. It was obvious to us from both our server's statements about the place being swamped and understaffed, and the host's words to every incoming guest about the crowd and the insanity of trying to keep up...that this was not going to be worth the wait. The server came to our table twice to apologize for the single bartender who was unable to keep up with drink orders. We were seated right around the corner from the host stand. We heard him rudely and frantically tell every arriving customer what a madhouse it was; they had served 1000 customers that weekend and were having trouble keeping up. I would like to feel sorry for a restaurant serving that many people in the time of COVID, but it's sort of hard to have compassion for a stranger who is trying to let you know that you are going to have a night of crazy...not for cheap.

Can't comment on food. Can't comment on drinks. Can't really comment on the service.

But, we did go across the street to Lily's, got seated immediately, and got food and drinks on the table in minutes.

Sorry, Salar.

Excellent experience! Great food and service. We ate outside in the new DORA area they had created. The ambience was fabulous- the new area was completely blocked off with plants, curtains and mini lights. Would highly recommend!

Foods were excellent. We had the chicken chicharones go appetizer. The skin was delicious and crunchy, but the meat was still juicy and flavorful.. I ordered the Pork Chop that comes with Etuvian chili. Although the Pork Chop was slightly more well done than I would like, it was still quite nice. My husband had the Lamb Shank that he enjoyed very much. We even bought some empanadas to go. We really enjoyed their menu that is a little different.

Simply outstanding! Salar is a Gem in Dayton and worth the drive if out of the general area. We have enjoyed it for years. Give them a try if you have not yet.

Excellent food! Great service. They went to considerable effort to show concern for our safety. I think it's strange the way all the cocktails are the same price. They don't all cost the same to make or take the same amount of effort. There should be a range of differently priced options.

Celebrated my my wife’s 60th birthday. Everything was as perfect as could be asked for. Drinks were perfection, food was amazing, and our server was excellent, conversant, engaging, but not overwhelming. Seating was well separated for those who may be concerned about such things at this point. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Love Salar! Such a great decor and ambiance. The creativity of the menu and the flavors of the food are just so unique and delicious. There's just nothing like it anywhere in the area. Cassie was our server and she is so attentive and friendly. A great experience! Don't miss Salar if you go to the Oregon district in Dayton.
