Eclectic mix of customers. Lots of tattoos; nose, lip and facial piercings; and "regular" people. They all seem to get along just fine, part of the attraction I think.
Duck ragot, fried calamari and roasted caprese and tomatoes were each outstanding.

Food and cocktails wonderful! At first seated at bar area which was very noisy and not the night we expected with reservations booked out a week ahead. Hostess was very kind and seated us outside instead. Server was very nice but didn’t check on us much or offer a dessert menu. It was Saturday night so probably due to being busy but overall the food alone would have me come back again.

My favorite Dayton restaurant. Everything I've ha (and I've covered the menu pretty well) is top quality and delicious, and the short ribs have to be the best on the planet. The wine list is varied and has some nice surprises, and the cocktails -- especially the smoked ones -- are interesting and fun. Service has always been impeccable.

The Machu Picchu Pork Chop sends me to heaven every time I get one. I was celebrating a little bit when I came to Salar and knew that I was going to order the porkchop before I even got there. My first bite transcended all other distractions. I also got the Chocolate Parfait for dessert. Also excellent, after it thawed a bit. I finished with the Lucid Absinthe Presentation, largely because I was curious about it. The presentation was a moderately entertaining show. The absinthe was interesting enough to add to my repertoire of alcoholic beverages.

We sat outside for brunch , great entertainment on the streets for sure. Service was excellent , all the staff are rock stars. I had very high expectations for my poached eggs and asparagus and was rather disappointed as the asparagus was thick and tough and it tasted like the fuel from the torch. The meal was very bland until I salted it and I am not a salt person. The eggs were perfectly poached, the sauce and the riced cauliflower was nice as well. We had the fruit & mascarpone was heavenly and the Brie appetizer with fig jam was also delicious. My mom had the filet mignon Benedict with potatoes and she loved it. The coffee was rich and delicious as well. I will definitely come back.

We took a couple of good friends who were visiting from abroad to dinner. Salar had the atmosphere we were looking for. The food was excellent, the drinks well prepared and their presentation unique.
Chef Margot came out to greet us and my friends were very impressed with her.
We will go back soon!

The food was delicious and outstanding! No complaints there. However, the service was slow. It took 45-50 minutes after our appetizer to get our food. I know they make everything fresh, but this seemed even slow for that. We were celebrating our anniversary and the host even specifically said they would seat us somewhere quieter. But, this “quiet” section had a couple groups who were extremely loud. One woman was even shouting. My husband and I couldn’t hear each other to talk much. That was disappointing. We would be willing to try it again to see if this was just an unusually busy and loud night or if it’s the norm. But the amazing food made it worth it!!

Calamari was some of the best we've ever had. Surf and turf was excellent and steak was cooked perfectly. Desserts were a little lacking. Tres leche cake didn't have alot of flavor.

Drinks are creative and interesting in the best way possible and the food was top notch. My friend ordered the lamb shank, I don’t even like lamb and I thought it was the best thing I tasted all night! Get the calamari too….you wont be disappointed!

The food at Salar was excellent...however, a heads up. We requested a window seat on the website and were seated at a window seat. However, evidently this is the "bar" area of the restaurant, so you're really not getting a waitperson, you get a bartender who waits on you when not bartending. So, after we got our food (which we waited a pretty long time for) we needed a couple other things. We waited for him to come back and check on us, however didn't happen. When we finally got his attention, 2 of the items we asked for he forgot to bring. Probably would be a good waiter, if that was all he was supposed to do. Next time we will be sure to specify we want to eat in the dining room.

Great ambience, lively scene with servers moving to provide very good service. The cebiche was delicious. The steak and chicken were very good which needed just a bit more seasoning/salt to be a 5. Pricey but worth it for special days!

Consistency, quality, ambiance, and service have been a staple for years in this establishment. It keeps high standards in all categories that allow for an enjoyable and pleasant exchange all around each time we visit. The variety of options and the high end presentations bring in crowds whenever the doors open. I recommend reservations. This is a reliable and established restaurant with a proven formula for success and satisfaction.
