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.

I've been to this place a couple times - the food is really good. Getting a table is a challenge. This time, I thought I'd book in advance for an early seating, but I still got the 'run of the house,' i.e. the worst table possible. After a long week, it would have been great to unwind with a nice cocktail and meal, but it wasn't meant to be. I realize that capacity constraints are an issue, but that early in the evening? They were insistent on seating me under bring lights on a flight path. They were very polite, but adamant that all the decent empty tables had someone else's name on them. I decided to leave.

Friendly and quick service, tasty cocktails, and that hanger steak was out-freaking-standing! It seemed they were doing a good job of seating tables even further apart than minimally necessary for covid-related safety reasons, which was appreciated.

I went here for some happy hour drinks with friends. They had a decent array of choices to choose from. However, I found their happy hour food selection wanting. There were very few options and most were not appealing.

Oh my goodness the food, drinks and service at Salut are always terrific and this time was no exception. My husband had the flank steak and it was done very rare - exactly the way he likes it. The oysters were yummy, my smokin' cosmo was wonderful as always, and I loved my Cobb salad. It was a little breezy sitting on the side, but we felt safe being outside. Our server Kate was perfectly attentive.

With. COVID limited menu you would think the dishes served would be very good. My wife and I ordered filters and they were not Dr St, somewhat cold and poor quality. French Onion soup lacked cheese and flavor. Gimme fries were greasy and soggy. Mussels over half of them were not open. Have dined at this neighborhood spot a lot over the last four years. But the quality, flavors and value was a huge miss on this visit. Not a way to keep customers in an already difficult dining environment.

Arrived and dinner was just ok. Felt like they were not in the grove quite yet? Had to send some food back, pay for bread and service was just moderate. I have eaten there many times before but this time it was not great.

This is a better restaurant than it is portraying during COVID. That is all I can say. This place has always been hit or miss but it had found a good place last winter. Now, not so much.

Last time I had the steak sandwich it was completely delectable. Crispy fries, perfectly done steak, served open faced and just lovely. This time, overdone meat and soggy, (SOGGY) fries. I didn't want to spoil the evening by sending them back but I wish I had by the time I was done. Even the side salad of greens had too much vinegar and nothing else.

Truly a disappointment to say the least. Miss this one until they can open up fully or you'll certainly be disappointed.

Great to be back on the patio at Salut in Edina. Our server was friendly and attentive. I enjoyed a wonderful glass of sparkling Rose. Sad that my chicken entree was unbelievably salty. I am a salt lover who carries a mini salt shaker in my purse -- and even for me it was way over the top. My dining partner had the Marguarita Pizza and was happy with his choice. Not sure I would order the Roasted 1/2 chicken again.

I got the mussels and they were delicious I could've had 2 plates of them. The person I was with got the steak sandwich and there were only 3 little strips of steak on it and they said it was gross and not worth the amount they charge for it at all. We ended up just sharing my mussels because they couldn't even finish their sandwich.

Our steak was undercooked twice. It was actually a raw piece of meat, not even close to being “medium rare”. There was no discount applied to our bill either. Disappointed with the poor quality of the food since you are paying for a nice meal.

Solid execution of franco-american favorites, nothing cutting-edge but overall well executed at a medium-high price point. We enjoyed a perfect summer evening on their large side alley, there is a very cute patio in front of the restaurant.

My boyfriend and I love this restaurant! We always order 2 shrimp cocktails because we just cannot share. I love the smokin’ Cosmo so yummy. Last time I had 2! Yassss. I love the roasted chicken and the walleye, so we try to get both and share but that doesn’t always end well. French onion soup is so good. Also the hanger steak and fries yum yum. Order the creme brûlée or the creme de pot for dessert or you’ll regret it.
