As always, Salar did not disappoint. With Salar it comes down to three key points: service, food & cocktails. All were outstanding on this trip. Our server was wonderful, shared some recommendations which rocked. My partner had the filet mignon which he could cut with a butter knife. Everything was delicious from the starter to the cocktails. Great job, we will be back. 👍

The BABY CREMINI SALTADO for $24 was overpriced and VERY salty. My friends seemed to enjoy the baked sea scallops and salad, but again, I thought they were overpriced for the portion received.

Our server Jen, was amazing, as always. She was so attentive and knew the menu inside and out! Her suggestions and explanation of the items was extremely helpful. We brought a friend and he was so impressed, he was sending pictures of everything to his friend, in Peru! What a great impression to leave on someone! I would highly recommend anything off the drink menu. Everything is made fresh in-house and it's amazing. The menu is always changing based upon the season. I would highly recommend a lamb or duck dish, just because it's pretty unique for this area and they do a great job on either dish. And save room for dessert. It's worth it! They make their own Irish Cream and the Absinth presentation is a really cool experience.

The food was delicious, our only critique on the filet was the accompanying “scalloped” potatoes. We wish they had more flavor. It tasted like a sliced plain baked potato that you had to dip into the cream cheese sauce, the potato itself lacked seasoning overall. Everything else we ordered that night from the Manchu pichu pork chop to the calamari were incredible! Everything was cooked to perfection. Service was phenomenal. Well done!

We were not greeted by our server for over 10 minutes. it took one hour to get our entrees and we didn't order anything else. By the time my food came, it was not what I order and server than blamed me on several occasions for the mix up. He kept telling me that he repeated the order back to me. my husband was finished with his food long before mine came out. My risotto was barely hot. You would think with our experience that a manager would come and rectify the situation or apologize, they did not. Definitely not worth the money.

we had a wonderful time! the atmosphere is beautiful throughout the entire restaurant. our server matt was very knowledgeable about the menu & perfectly balanced attention to our needs.

the complimentary flatbread was a nice surprise...crispy & tasty. our main course was surf & turf...scallops & fillet. both perfectly cooked & served on the best risotto we’ve ever had! my girlfriend had a delicious drink called the chameleon...a fascinating presentation with butterfly pea ice that slowly dissolved affecting the color as it melted.

we’re very excited to visit again!

One of my very favorite restaurants in the area. I know when I plan a night at Salar, it won't disappoint.
From greeting to leaving, consistent great service. The food is always spot on. Perfect seasoning, creative dishes and nice presentation abound. And, the cocktails are fun and tasty.
On top of everything else, the ambiance is perfect for girl's night, date or solo dinner.

Came here to celebrate my Boyfriend’s birthday and it was well worth the drive from Miami University of Oxford. Our server,Jen was absolutely amazing! Boyfriend got the duck ravioli, I ordered the lamb shank and they were both phenomenal. Had pana cotta and espresso to finish. The food, wine, ambiance, service, everything was great.

Went for a two year anniversary dinner, reservation on a Saturday at 5 pm. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was relatively empty which I prefer when I go out to dine. Our server (the bartender), was knowledgeable, polite and courteous in guiding us through the menu as it was our first time there. Eventually we chose a salad, entrees and a few cocktails - all of which were unique and excellent. It is a touch pricey, but the flavors are unique, the portions are perfectly sized, and I felt it was more than worth it. I have verbally recommended to friends to check it out - but I do understand that some of the flavors may be outside the normal range.
Ultimately, I think Salar just does it right.

Food was bland and duck was over cooked. Chicken breading was burnt. Pasta dry. Being a serious foodie and chef myself I was very disappointed. Perhaps food is better when restaurant is busy? That makes no sense. Bill was nearly $200 for three people. Sad 50th birthday dinner. I would have been much happier going to any sit down chain restaurant instead.

Absolutely amazing. Staff could not have been more accommodating and the food is by far the most eclectic in downtown Dayton. I HIGHLY recommend the baked jumbo scallop in the shell appetizer topped with parm and lemon. Flavors are out of this world.
Mahi dish was to die for. Great wine and craft cocktail selection as well. Will be back very soon. In fact, I want to go back tonight!
Thanks, Salar!!!!!!!

We loved the craft drinks and our server! He made excellent recommendations and we loved the appetizers we choose. However, when we received our meal, my Husbands plate had a long black hair rimming the bowl and he had lost his appetite. They brought him out a new one, and he boxed it up. We never saw a manager and the only compensation we had was a half off appetizer for our next visit. We were not satisfied with this outcome and wish they would have comped our $28 meal for the inconvenience.

Update since my first post: The Manager called me and apologized for not making it out to my table and felt really bad. She sent me a gift card to take care of our next experience and to make up for it. It was very much appreciated and we look forward to heading back there soon!
