We had a presumably new waiter...couldnt answer questions about the menu and waited terribly long before we called him over to take our order. Nice kid, probably new. Our food choice was good but not extraordinary. High price,
nice ambience, ok food and with a bit more experience, I'm sure great service.

Excellent experience. I have a Spanish speaking fiance. I called ahead to see if someone was able to help her decide on a menu item for her. We were seated right away. The host when we were seated said that someone come assist in the menu. Not only did someone come out right away but it was the head chef/ owner Margo. We were very please in the experience. Thank you so much for the accommodations

We were seated in a private nook for 6-8 people. We were seated right at our reservation time. It was perfect. The food was wonderful. We especially loved the calamari and the other appetizers. The drinks were amazing too. We all enjoyed our main courses. The salmon maybe was a little dry. The lamb and ravioli were delicious! Highly recommend Salar.

Fun night, but it got VERY LOUD!!! Also, my father in law found his steak to be tough but did not want to complain. As always, i did not know they were getting green beans or i would have advised against. Everyone today cooks them al dante which is too tough for people in their 90's.
My food was great. as was my wife's

The salmon needs more spice. While the service is great the food is average and the price is too high for the overall quality of the food. I expected better quality food for the price.

I took my mom for her birthday on a Sunday around 6 pm. We had a great waiter named Nolan. We started with the beef empanadas which her fabulous then we both got the surf & turf and Nolan brought us a Tres Leches dessert on the house for my moms birthday. Everything tastes great, the restaurant is beautiful and the services was top notch.

We hosted 16 people for a graduation party at Salar. The manager (Meg), the event manager (Brandi), our server (Chris)....everyone was absolutely incredible. Everything was top notch...the food, the drinks, the service.....all of it. My only regret is that this restaurant isn't in Texas. Thank you Salar team for making our daughter's party so great.

As usual, everything was very nice. They had to hire a new crew when they reopened last fall, but since New Year's the service has been spot-on. I wish there was some sound deadening material in the ceiling.

I made reservations for my husband and i for a romantic anniversary dinner, I was very unhappy because they sat us at a table between two other tables that were practically stuck to us we were in each others conversations. It was very uncomfortable it was too loud to the point that me and my husband could not hear each other. The waiter then brought our check with a bunch of food that was not ours. I usually don’t write bad reviews but I was very disappointed. Our anniversary dinner did not come out how I anticipated.

I cannot remember the waiter's name, but he was very courteous. The food was brought out quickly and hot. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

It wasn’t not a good experience. We waited 2:30 hours until our food came. Steak was over cooked. The manager took it out of the bill and gave me another one to go. Again the steak to go was alive :( not sure what happened this weekend but I wasn’t looking forward but they didn’t get it right

Dayton now has many options for dining. I am glad that we went to Salar, but we will not be back until we go to more of the different restaurants in town. If it was outstanding we would go back sooner. What was wrong? Nothing was bad, but there was nothing great.
