About Salut Bar Americain - Edina
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.

Experience was good. Waiter was excellent. Care of our grand kids was very good.
We enjoyed our experience!
Dinner at Salut is very busy and almost hectic. Previous visits for lunch and brunch have been more relaxed. Service was adequate considering that the restaurant was packed, but could have been a bit more attentive for dinner. Two of the entrees were deemed excellent, however the Duck was a great disappointment for an establishment which celebrates a French chic style. Overall, we’ll return for a midday meal but not for dinner.
We absolutely love the food at Salut! The service is always outstanding! We were a little disappointed to be seated in the center of the room inches from another adjacent table for four. Booths are a much nicer experience. Great happy hour deals. Regular menu pricing is a bit expensive.
I've been to Salut many times and this time did not disappoint. There were three of us who shared the French regional menu which was Escargot Tartine, a cheese plate, and Coq co vin (sp). It was absolutely wonderful and delicious. I highly recommend giving the French regional menus a try. They switch them out every three months or so and are an exciting way to bring back France to this French restaurant. Thank you, Salut!
Food here is always delicious. This time our service wasn’t the best. I had to ask for the bread. One person ordered soup as a first course but it was brought out with the meal! That was ridiculous. Good thing we have been here numerous times and don’t usually have a problem. Ordered the chicken sandwich and the flank steak. Both yummy.
Always a favorite! The cocktails are always perfect. Love their Smoking Cosmo! We started out with Mussels, that are a generous helping for an appetizer. Plus they taste out of this world! This time we each had burgers. Which are huge and delicious! And the pomme frites are always crispy and perfect for dipping in the Bernaise sauce! No room for dessert! Great food and service are always the best here!
It was a busy night..between xmas/New years..Server was personable but possibly too many tables? Drinks arrived after apps..the time to ask tables for a refill on drinks should be before food arrives, if the drinks are low..we ordered another round after food came, drinks arrived when almost done eating..utilize the bussers more, they should be refilling water, clearing, etc..have servers tip more..it will help you out.
We come in fairly often, I like the food, don't crave it..i always weigh price vs. quality ..
Mountainous appetizer serving of French fries absolutely addicting ! Beyond what two of us were able to tackle
The French onion soup was perfection
Delicious turkey burger
Servers were terrific. Very attentive and engaging. They contributed to the warm and intimate atmosphere
I highly recommend this restaurant
I’ve been here many times and love the burgers, salads and more on the menu and the openness and coziness of the place. However there were fruit flies hovering around our table the whole meal. In December. Really disgusting. Poor pest control. Can’t ever go back. Also doubt any of my 7 guests will go again or positively recommend.
My wife and I enjoy both the Salut locations in Edina and Grand Ave. in St. Paul. The spaces are quite different but the experience is great at both: You will get really good French Bistro food that is not fussy (they actually make fun of fussy French food) along with polished friendly service.
I've dined at the St. Paul Salut - enjoyed Edina's even more. We were a group of nine gathered to celebrate my mother's birthday. The service was outstanding. The waiter absolutely made the event. Food was delicious and prices were as expected. We will return and would recommend to someone else.
Salut is one of our favorite restaurants when we need a night out. In fact, during our meal, we were even discussing how we have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. The pomme frites are a must, and my son loves the escargot--yes, a bit unusual for an 11 year old--I know. Also, the servers are always wonderful.
We have been coming for years and generally enjoy Salut. Our meal on Saturday was an exception. The filet was of very poor quality (extremely chewy) and was oversalted to the point that it was almost inedible. My wife and son also commented on the sodium - unusual for them. Not sure what was going on Saturday night but we are hopeful it was just an off night and/or a new cook who loves the salt shaker.
I come from Europe so grew up with French cuicine.
While the taste of three of our four dishes was good the presentation was all but French. It was heavy, clumsy, uninspired! Being served a two-2 1/2 inch thick toasted bread smeared with aioli on top of an otherwise well tasting bouillabaisse was not the elegant presentation I had expected from a high end French restaurant. Neither was the good cut of steak with green Madagascar peppercorns, almost hidden by the wild stack of pommes frites....and nothing else! The Salad Nicoise was okay, but not very inspired, I can make a more exciting combo and presentation myself. The crab cake was the only dish that presented well and with a little flair of style.
If this had been a middle of the road restaurant it would have been easier to swallow, but being a pricier place in Edina, it was much below reasonable expectations.
