The staff was incredible! Our waitress Katie was phenomenal.
Food was great, Ribeye for the wife, Shrimp and Grits for me...Seated on patio on a Fall evening for our Anniversary Dinner...Fabulous!
The food was just average and too small of portions, especially the starters and salads, for the price you paid.
We were outside. 1st time visiting and was very impressed. Staff very professional and food “shrimp and grits” were absolutely amazing. We will be returning sooner than later. Atmosphere was also amazing as well.
Saluda’s has consistently great food and service.
Great spot for anniversary. Food was excellent and service as well.
The best food, the best service. We loved it. I definitely recommend it. 👍🏼
Great service, great food... Have a good time, in a great ambient...
Outstanding experience as always, highly recommend, one of our favorite places in Columbia, great service as always!
The food was absolutely amazing. The service was fine, my only frustration was it was my boyfriends birthday and our server acknowledged every other tables special occasion but didn’t mention ours, even though it was marked on our reservation. Overall had a great time and will be back for special occasions.
Great dinner, great atmosphere. It was our first time there and we look forward to returning soon. The staff was attentive and helpful. The drinks, appetizers, seafood, steaks, desserts, and coffee were all excellent.
Great service and menu. Apps were perfect and the steaks were absolutely wonderful!
If I could give more stars I would ! Excellent across the board.
Excellent meal, cocktails, service, and ambiance! Could not recommend more!
Everything was awesome. Food was excellent with taste and temperature. Ambiance was just right. Service was great also. The only flaw I would say is that the restaurant's managers should make sure servers have alcohol knowledge. She was a good server, she just didn't know the difference between Whisky and Scotch. For a restaurant of that stature it's important to have wine and liquor knowledge. Overall it was a great experience.
Wow! What an amazing wonderful meal. Our server was spectacular, food was delicious and the ambiance was lovely. We were greeted friendly and cheerfully. Our sever was on the ball, attentive, perfect balance of personal and professional. The food was delicious with unique fresh spins on old favorites. Filet, grouper and stuffed pepper special all were delicious. Starters were great- drinks fresh and cold and the desserts simply to die for. Be sure to order an extra size if the corn for the table. Trust me. After a weekend of disappointing meals out, this last experience was simply lovely. Kudos!!!
Excellent food and service. Would recommend for others to go .
Outstanding, as usual! Missed Jessica again! Next time!
Saluda's is the perfect place to celebrate any special occasion! We sat out on the balcony and enjoyed not only the fabulous food but also the beautiful evening!
Wonderful service! Saluda's never disappoints; the extra precautions they took during this pandemic were greatly appreciated.
Very good service and very quiet. Great place for a dinner for two.
Sheridan was a great server! Food and wine were awesome. We loved the patio overlooking the lighted trees.
Great food, great drinks and great staff! I will return!
Excellent outdoor dining!
My husband and I were celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary and decided to go to Saluda’s. We were hesitant at first because our last experience wasn’t the best, but options were limited on Sunday. My shrimp and grits were good. My husband ordered filet mignon which looked like a sirloin steak. We’ve been to many fine dining restaurants and being a steak lover, my husband has eaten many types of steak. This thin cut on meat clearly was not filet mignon and when he asked to be sure the order wasn’t correct, felt insulted at the fact that he was told it was. It was not worth the $35 spent on it. Needless to say we will not be going back.
We took our daughter and her friends to dinner. Food, drinks, service, setting were all excellent. Everything was perfect!
Great place to dine with good food and a nice view! Service was on point and the atmosphere was romantic!
The menu nightly menu online was different than at the restaurant. The Fried Green Tomatoes were dripping in grease. The server wasn’t friendly. We’ve been coming for years but this time it was definitely not worth the money or the hour ride.
A fabulous meal for a special occasion. Very attentive waiter, who was sensitive to our conversations.
Great food and a nice balcony outside make Saludas an ideal stop for fine dining in Columbia. Excellent service makes the evening easy to enjoy.
Even tho I already liked the restaurant and the food, its become a true favorite during the pandemic with its lovely covered outdoor porch with views of the fountain and 5 points. Food is always delicious and presented with care and skill. Have been served by 3 different servers in last few weeks and all were pleasant and helpful.
Dinner was absolutely amazing. The shrimp n grits, filet mignon, pork chop, and ribeye were all fantastic. This is our top restaurant in Columbia, SC. It’s an upstairs establishment in Five Points so not sure if handicap accessible. But a definite in my book of must eats.
Got lucky and got to sit out on patio. Unfortunately our few the kitchen back stairs and dumpsters. Where we enjoyed watching staff exit kitchen door and throw trash into the dumpster from the second floor. We were also entertained by getting to watch kitchen staff take smoke breaks.
Server was inattentive and disinterested in working.
Bread service was stale and very plain. Served with a sweetened butter that did not pair well with stale white bread
Mac and cheese as a side was served cold we did send it back and it was returned hot but we had finished half our meal by then
We went to celebrate our anniversary and there was nothing special about the evening. Very disappointing as this place received very good reviews
Last thing....stay alert as the restaurant shares a building with a very seedy bar. We did not feel safe having to pass through 20+ people gathered outside their establishment drinking and smoking in order to get to the door of the restaurant
Take our advise, dine elsewhere!
Excellent at Saluda’s as always!
Great date place! The balcony is great and makes you feel like you are in a tropical location. Fast service. Excellent food. Will definitely eat here again!
Excellent good and atmosphere. Service was to notch!
Great ! Superior experience
Great service -waitress was attentive without hovering. Food was excellent, especially swordfish. the shrimp and grits were not my favorite (very heavy on the cheese), but everything else was wonderful.
Outstanding food and service in a safe environment during this pandemic. Appetizer of fried oysters, entrees of sea scallops and swordfish, grand marnier creme Brulee dessert, and wine all thoroughly enjoyed.
Excellent food and atmosphere as always. Service was outstanding too.
