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.

Some server named Jordan kept muttering under his breath and yelling at other staff. At one point he walked by and muttered “who the hell put kids at [table] 21. My server, an older lady who apparently comes from a different generation that thinks this is okay, put her hand on my back each time she came to our table. The food was okay— not sure you get to be called a French restaurant when duck isn’t on the menu

Was good ...more fine than great. The short ribs were more stroganoff more than short ribs. The chicken was delish

My wife and I stopped by on a Sunday evening and had the three course special. All parts of the meal were terrific including a mushroom pasta main entry that was amazing. We will return.

A good take on French "fusion" food (is that a thing?) Pretty sure they don't have Walleye in France, but the Walleye Meuniere (lemon butter and capers) was very good, and my wife's Braised Short Rib Pappardelle was perfect. The Creme Brulee and Chocolate Mousse were fantastic as well. It was loud and vibrant on the Saturday night that resulted in an error in our order, but the waiter and staff handled it very well.

Food was good. Our wait person was so nice but didn’t listen and over the period of the meal served our fries first ( which we hadn’t requested) and forgot two or three other things. Hopefully she was just having an off day. But it wasn’t our normal wonderful time at one of our favorite restaurants.

Got wrong food, partial order and then had dessert charged that we never even ordered.
My steak was very salty, the waiter was clearly stressed. Not an enjoyable experience. Used to be better.

We had a lovely time. I was out of town on Valentine's Day, so we were happy to go out a couple nights later. We arrived slightly early, but there were open tables and we were seated immediately. We ordered several appetizers, and then our entrees; finishing up with dessert and espresso. Excellent, attentive service. The food came out right on time; entrees after we were mostly done with the appetizers. Very pleasant. The space is a little loud just in terms of acoustics. As I go through my 50s I have a harder time picking out conversation in clattery environments, but Salut wasn't too busy Sunday evening so it was just loud enough to have a vibe and an atmosphere, but not so loud I had any trouble conversing. Wonderful evening, and we'll be back.

Food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Our server was outstanding and very informative. Only knock was the price of liquor. $17 for a glass of Basil Hayden. I think the W is cheaper and there was no pricing menu for the spirits. Other than that I will frequent this place often.

CJ at the bar was extremely distracting. It was Valentine's Day, and he was whining about having to work longer hours. I work in the industry, and on holidays, it's pretty obvious why no one would be cut. Yet he made a huge scene at the bar in front of many guests and his own shift leader. I don't normally review my experiences, but this was worth talking about. Christian and the woman working the lead handled it with grace, but it really should not have happened on the floor...

We've gone to Salute for Valentines for many years, we were disappointed last year but thought we'd try it one more time, what a disappointment, food was average at best.
As stated, it was our favourite restaurant and now a place I won't return to

Entree arrived when we hadn’t started the appetizer. The lobster entree consisted of two bites of lobster. The server was excellent.

It was good however my husband order a non-alcoholic drink and on delivering the drink the server made the comment that “when you turned 21 she’d bring him a nice glass of wine” My husband has an addiction and the comment was inappropiate

We were given a cozy booth in the back, just as requested. Meeting for a later lunch allowed us to hang out afterward and just chat and not feel like we were holding the table up. We both had the Croque Madame and pomme frites and they were delicious. Our waitstaff was friendly and just the right level of attentive. Thanks! I will be back.

Went to lunch with 2 friends prior to going to a movie at Edina Theater and we had a really delicious meal. I had the egg white omelette with a salad. Tasty. But the best part was the baguette I ordered separately. It was served with warm butter, oil with an olive and the bread was crusty, but not the kind of crusty that rips the roof of your mouth. Only complaint is that our server seemed to overlook us, but we stopped another worker and she was kind enough to take our order. We had concerns about making it to the movie, but our food came out very quickly.
