I have to voice my frustration with the table
we were given on Valentines Day and our first visit. We had early reservations at 530. We were given a small two top table when there were several larger tables available. I asked for a larger table, but was told they were totally booked and this was it. There are three tables this size in the whole restaurant. My back was to the whole room and not able to see the board specials. Over the hour and 10 minutes we were there we saw parties of two were seated at 4 tops. If I had not specifically asked for a bigger table this would have been different. I understand they were booked, but we had reservations too. Seems like they wanted to seat the least favorable tables early. The food was great though. Service was nice too. Not sure I’ll go back because comfort is important too.

This neighborhood gem has become our favorite restaurant. It's near us in Lake Forest and the food, service, and ambiance are always consistent and predictable. Sallio has a great menu but the daily specials are so good, we seem to always have one of those entrees. Hoping to get to the menu as it all sounds so delicious. A special differentiator is specialty salts that accompany every dish as is specifically prepared for that dish. Delightful. Service is attentive without hovering and great wine selection. Again, our favorite!

WE had another great dinner for 7 of us for my mother’s birthday. Perfect service by Anna. The food was very, very good. 1/2 off bottles of wine on Sunday was a bonus that made the event even better! Seriously, it was a perfect delivery for a special occasion. WE are going back next Sunday - just my wife and I!

Food has always been good at Salio - the service was lacking though. We were first taken by the bartender who took drink orders and went over the menu. We ordered appetizers next. After that - even though the bartender/waitperson was right there - they NEVER looked over at our table the rest of the night. We had to get the front hostess/owner and then realized our appetizers were never ordered. The owner took care of us some but the final check came 10 minutes after dessert was served and only when I asked for it. We weren't in a big hurry so there was no major issue - just a lack of service by the bartender! Food was good but there will be issues if the service continues to be marginal!

A wonderful experience from start to finish. My wife and I shared a dish and it was plenty. The salmon was cooked perfectly, all the greens were garden fresh and the desert was a wonderful indulgence. A great place for a relaxing quiet dinner.

We enjoyed our meal very much. I overheard our waiter say they had two waiters out that evening, which would explain why the service was poor. Our poor waiter was very nice but he had too many tables to deal with on a night that every table was filled. Our bottle of champagne was left on the table to get warm, no ice bucket provided. We never did get any salt to put on our food. It took an hour to get our bread, which arrived as three very small slices of pre-toasted baguette. But our hearts of palm salad was delicious, and my salmon, and my husbands shrimp with pasta were also delicious, although in need of some salt. Portions are very generous. We will definitely try this place again, hopefully they will be fully staffed and the service will be better.

Diverse menu augmented by several specials made for something for everyone. Fried calamari was as good as any I’ve ever had and the Heart to Heart salad was delicious. My companion was delighted with her halibut special while my rare tuna steak was perfect. The rum raisin bread pudding with praline ice cream was scrumptious. This family owned restaurant does it right.

New Year’s Eve dinner with friends was great! We love Sallio. It was a bit noisy, but it was packed with folks celebrating so that’s to be expected. The trout is fabulous and the pork tenderloin got rave reviews too. One of our favorite restaurants! Thank you Sallio!

Have been to Sallios many times and enjoyed the food and the service. This past Sunday was different! We took a couple who had never been there and I was very disappointed overall. Our reservation was at seven, and there were maybe 4 tables seated. We never figured out who our service person was because there were only two people waiting on tables and we'd get one or the other . We had to ask for the different salts with our salads which in the past was brought automatically! Our guests ordered 2 items that they were already out of ( 7:00) Our order was wrong and our guests had to eat theirs while they redid ours! They were through when we got ours. And it took longer to get our food than it should have.
Sorry to be so blunt but not only was it disappointing but very surprising. We have always enjoyed Sallios and will go back but hope its better the next time!

This place is always tasty....and has a good wine selection...the best is that the chef will let you mix and match so if you want risotto but want fish instead of shrimp..its no problem...

This is a family-run place, and they are very anxious for you to enjoy your visit. I probably got more attention than I needed, but I was dining alone and enjoyed the conversation. The seared tuna salad was very good. They bring you a little flight of different kinds of salt, which didn't really do much for me, but I haven't seen that elsewhere. Overall, it's a good place for a quiet meal. They'll be happy to see you.
