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.

We had reservations for a table, got seated at the bar, figured out they only had 1 server, not there fault the bartender was amazing and made up for the disappointment of having a date night sitting belly up at the bar. Food was nothing to be noted but all in all a good night.

Everything was great but was disappointed in the Mojitos I ordered. They just tasted like watered down rum without the muddled mint and lime. The last time I was there, the Mojitos tasted the way that they should. I think that bartender needs to learn how to make these better.

Salut at 50th and France has a lovely patio, so we dined there. Salut's french fries are the best in the Twin Citiies, in my opinion. And they serve a generous portion. Great drinks. Definitely a do again.

we stop in for a late lunch. The food was authentic and tasty. Outside patio could benefit from a little bit attention to make more inviting and level out tables. Inside looked like it would be awesome for for Dinner.

The level of service was incredible. Our server (Sarina) was the consummate professional. Numerous table touches, great communication, wonderful personality, in point menu recommendations and fast service. The food was very good. The price point on oysters a bit high. Will definitely patronize Salut ongoing.

We had to wait almost 1 hour to get our food. When it arrived it was not only cold, but the meat was frozen inside! They tried to apologize sending a dessert but it was not enough for us to leave with a better impression. We will never be back.

Went out with my husband for dinner and cocktails. Overall very good experience, only complaint was that the service was a bit slow. This might be related to challenges with hiring waitstaff in general, however. Would go to this restaurant again!

Took 40 minutes to get our first drink, manager "comped" them, but then when delivered one drink was completely wrong. Apps delivered before drinks and dinner served before our bottle of wine was opened.
Our server was nice, she had no support.

Walleye was outstanding! The steak sandwich was good but ordinary. The hanger steak was flavorful. Very noisy. I would go back again for walleye.

Salade Niçoise was sensational - tuna (not canned!) was served perfectly rare, gently seared. Fine cocktails. Half-Caesar salad was generous and the Calamari starter was served with a lovely aïoli (unfortunately Salut is using those trendy white anchovies).
Servers Oswaldo and Anthony were charming, knowledgeable and amusing. A great team!

We have been loyal (weekly prior to COVID) supporters of Salut. There is a change in management post COVID that does not care or understand customer experience, service and loyalty. From the beginning at check in (unfriendly greeting, not knowing which tables where avails and not being able to accommodate our reservation seating request), to a stretched too thin served that was dealing with a kitchen that did not know how to stage orders, to meals being delivered wrong and ending with a GM conversation where the recently appointed GM was rude, disrespectful and basically did give a sh.t attitude. Unfortunately, we will not be returning. And, quite frankly question the future longevity of Salut in Edina under the current leadership. We will, however, continue to support Manny’s and Pittsburg Blue.
