French
Salut Bar Américain is the brasserie down the block. Warm and welcoming, with an urbane wit and urban sensibility, it’s an afternoon hangout and an evening refuge. It’s your neighbor with a French accent. The setting evokes a classic Parisian bistro/restaurant. The service is spirited, confident and capably executed. And the cooking captures the freshness and hearty flavor of French cuisine. It’s the vibe inside that sets Salut apart from bowing maitre ‘d’s and sniffing sommeliers. From the welcoming wine list, to the playful décor, to the genial buzz in the dining room, Salut celebrates the French restaurant’s essential qualities while dispensing with the exclusionary ones. It demystifies French food by making it accessible and rewarding while poking fun at the stereotypes that surround it. Salut gives French dining a shot in the arm – while giving the French a gentle kick in the derriere. In this sense, Salut is a dual citizen: Authentically French – but proudly American.

The restaurant was very hot and humid and had a smell. I wasn’t overly impressed with the menu and the pricing doesn’t match the experience I’ve been there several times thinking it was a one time event but the experience has been the same on all visits. So-so.

My friends enjoyed their dinners. My grilled shrimp was just okay. I don’t know what the greens were in the beet salad but they were hard to get on a fork or chew. The green beans accompanying the entree were so under done, I could not even cut them.

Food was good, server Tanya very good. Hostess desperately needs training in customer service. Didn’t know what she was doing, and didn’t seem to care. Salut could and should do better.

We lucked out and had a beautiful day to sit outside. All the plantings were lush and full providing a barrier to the street. This is a pretty outdoor area. The food was very good as always. This is one of our local favorites.

The food here is outstanding. I had the steak with fries and my husband had the lamb curry. We also had an appetizer of brie and a side of mushrooms. The mushrooms were some of the best I've ever had with a steak and my steak was cooked to perfection. Our server was very friendly and they had great happy hour prices. We were extremely pleased with the meal.

We always love Salut! However, this visit we felt rushed to eat and leave. Our appetizers came about five minutes before our food, so the table was crowded with too many plates and the waitress came three times to remove the appetizers while the serving dishes were still full. The restaurant was about 1/2 filled, so we weren’t taking up space while people were waiting.

I only mention this because it was different than every other time I’ve eaten at Salut. Perhaps the waitress was new and not trained properly. Or, she was trained and just wanted to turn tables to increase her income. Whatever the situation—it was uncomfortable.

I got a gift card for this restaurant and I wanted to take my husband out for a nice anniversary dinner. The server Ian was absolutely amazing....he was on the ball the entire time during our dining experience. This restaurant will definitely be our go to for a delicious dinner with exceptional service. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

We had a very late anniversary dinner on Thurs night. Both of our salads were good, though they used green salty olives in my greek salad instead of kalamata olives. French onion soup was good, but not many onions at all. My shrimp entree was delicious and the chocolate opera cake was very good!

The onion soup cheese Hamburger was the best we ever had. It was very tasty and cooked to the perfect temperature. I really enjoyed the flavorful mussels appetizer too. Their Caesar salad was delicious (great dressing!) with many options to add chicken, steak or fish. I will be back for a Caesar lunch. We discovered Salut while attending the art fair, we will definitely be back.

Had lunch at Salut Bar Americain in Edina. It was midweek at peak lunch time. Service was very attentive. Menu was varied and reasonably priced. It was not crowded, so the noise level was low. Parking in the ramp behind the restaurant allowed easy access. I recommend Salut for a comfortable casual lunch when you plan a lingering conversation without intrusive interruptions.

Two couples dined, each person had a different entre. The bouillabaisse was wonderful as was the crab cake Oscar . One guest found the steak frite not to her liking. The opera cake was delightful. All-in-all an excellent dining experience.
