    We were lucky to get an early table and the kitchen staff had a chance to work with our dietary restrictions. Dinner was very tasty and all the meals came out together without any “cooling” issues. Our server was very patient and understanding for our dietary needs and offered helpful suggestions and went out of his way to answer questions after making inquiries with the cooking staff. Family loved the place. Pleasant temperature for dining, visually pleasing and the staff serving staff atmosphere was very warm and open. Just a little limited on the menu selection. Would love to see some poultry in the options. Will eat here again and do recommend for anyone who want a white cloth dining experience. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    We had a great time at Saludas! Our waitress was amazing, and always came to give us what we needed. We were there to celebrate my birthday, and the hostess was amazing to help us store my birthday cake in the fridge until we were ready for it. They made my celebration the best, and I will definitely go back!

    Amazing food. Low level noise and Jessica, our waitress, went above and beyond. My hubby’s has a new favorite restaurant. The only drawback: the restaurant isn’t wheelchair accessible or convenient for anyone with a disability. There’s about 25 steps to get up to the restaurant on the second floor. I understand it’s a historical building but everyone should have access.

    Atmosphere was awesome! Service was fantastic. Food was outstanding. From the greeter, server and kitchen, we were amazed at the attention to detail. When your server can help pair the appetizer, entree and dessert, an amazing meal and overall dining experience is guaranteed. Phenomenal restaurant. Highly recommended as always!!

    Food, service, atmosphere-> Excellent. They are firing on all cylinders. Everything is clean and well presented. The choices are great, the ingredients are fresh and the outcome is delicious. I had the Caesar Salad, Shrimp and Grits and Chocolate Almond Cake. All were delicious. The chef’s accent to these standard dishes is well received. They even have a dessert chef, Rachel. I never finish dessert; I did tonight! Very friendly staff and the upstairs setting is very cozy. I’d love to go back for the Grouper.

    I gave the service a low score because the staff were rushing to get you out the moment you sat down. We had reservation for 530p when they opened. Everything came out very quick which was nice but this isn’t the kind of place they want you staying awhile. They seem to have you In/out in 40 mins tops. Little example for you- My husband was about to be in the middle of eating the last cocktail shrimp and as soon as he picked it up the server came right over and took the cocktail glass away before he could drip his shrimp in the sauce. We both laughed it off. If you want to be in and out this is your place.
