Unfortunately we could not eat here for New Year's as there was a fire and it was closed.

A much needed date night turned out to be fabulous at Salar. Mark, our server, was attentive without being over solicitous and gave us great suggestions on what to order. Ambiance was cool and cozy. From start to finish we couldn’t have been more pleased with our dining experience.

Our waiter was knowledgeable and pleasant but was very chauvinist. The food was fabulous. Table for two was cramped and the lighting was too dark for my liking.

Great food. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Our 2 adult children were home for Christmas and to celebrate mine and my husband's birthdays. I have to eat gluten free and there were many options to choose from. We had some specialty drinks that were very good. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. If the paella is gluten free we plan to go back on a Tuesday and give it a try.

This was our first time eating at the restaurant. We arrived on time and indicated that it was our first visit, that a friend recommended it. There were a lot of empty seats in the main area and it looked like pleasant venue. So we were taken through that area and seated in a very noisy hall way seating area in the back, with some very sound Christmas music. Our server was a little nervous and wanting to sell us on house specialty house drinks and appetizers. That is his job. We tried both. The drinks were very heavy on the ice. My wife's drink had a very large round ice ball that took up most of the glass. My drink had ice above the top. The appetizer was very hard to share and messy. The main course was the large double pork chop dinner. As we found out that it was served and cooked medium? My wife's chop was more medium to done. Looked good. Mine was medium to rare, with large piece of undercooked fat on the side. After a couple of bites I couldn't eat anymore. Please ask the server to have your pork more on the done side!

We eat out quite a lot. The expectation we had was a somewhat quiet dinner with a good conversation, good drinks and excellent food. This is what most people prefer. We left after an hour, noticed that the main area was now full with a very young crowd. If you are 35 or above this may not be your place.

Very restaurant caters to there own group of people.

This is our second time to dine at Salar. As usual it was great. The food is spectacular and the service is the best in Dayton. I highly recommend this restaurant for people who love great food and fine dining.

Great food, great the heart of the Oregon District with valet parking (maybe weekends only?).

Signature drinks alone are worth the visit! Beautiful inside and employees were all very kind. We were just in for appetizers and drinks but everything tasted fantastic! The Pisco Sour is my new obsession. Also tried the whiskey smash that was just as good!

It was my birthday and I’m from Iowa but my boyfriend lives in Dayton. I found this gem via opentable and the food was outstanding and I had a wonderful evening.
