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.
Fabulous, creative food, wonderful service and atmosphere! We'll go back again and again!
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 service...in 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.
The food was pretty good and very flavorful. However I didn’t like the seating arrangement. I had a reservation yet I was seated at the bar area. The bartender did his best to manage the bar and our table.
Only 3 stars this time.. Weekend dinner for 4, promptly seated into the full dining room.. noisy, holiday crowd, typical for the season.. but, appetizers & salads did not come out together, more like half & half.. The dinners came together, but the scallops were way under-cooked and our server didn't follow-up for over 10 minutes.. so, I'm glad they're busy but it won't stay that way with these basic flaws and not-basic prices. Bottle of wine + 2 apps + 2 salads + 4 entrees + tip = $200.
The music was a little hard to talk over, but the overall atmosphere was very nice. The service was very friendly—if more than a little distracted—and knowledgeable about not only the food but the area and town. The food itself was delicious and portioned conservatively, leaving the perfect amount of room for dessert. Why are you closed.
Food was spectacular and the service superb. Even acknowledged our anniversary with complimentary champagne and thanked us for being there for our occasion. Will definitely be back.
Food was very good with a variety of foods you don't typically see in Dayton.
Everything was done well (service, food, drinks, ambience). A bit pricey, but that won't stop us from returning.
Made a reservation for 3. Showed up with 5. Accommodated the additional people with ease and pleasure. Return trip definitely in order.
Excellent! A jewel for Dayton foodies
Enjoyed a last-minute, small plates dinner during the monthly First Friday event. Busy, but they seemed to keep everything going smoothly. The food was great, artfully presented. Friendly atmosphere!
Food has been great the two times I've been there. Amazing appetizers, amazing salads, amazing main dishes. Waiters/waitresses are quite knowledgeable too.
