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 have not dined here in about six months. The menu is tired and needs updating. The only update I saw is that they are now charging for the bread. It was not busy at all but service was very slow. It is not a vegetarian friendly menu unless you consider a salad your entree.

Easter brunch with the family - great service, felt like we were with family when we were really just another table.
Food was fast, and with two kids - that is critical. Finally feel like we can get out for great food, at a good price, with the entire family.

I've visited Salut Bar Americain at least 25 times over the past 10 years or so, and it's about time I wrote a review for them. I feel as if I have a very good body of experience at Salut and each time I have visited, the food and service have been rock solid; both very easy and very nice. I always have good luck with their Tuna Niçoise salad coupled with a tasty baguette with butter and/or olive oil, and their service is usually pretty darn good. And for certain types of meetings, the location can't be beat. I think the bar area is too small and their wine list could be better, especially by the glass. But all in all, I like Salut and I'm sure I'll be back there sometime soon. If you are in the 50th & France neighborhood, don't hesitate to stop into Salut.

Muscles in wine sauce outstanding as was the steak sandwich with fries. Be sure to get the French bread (sweet, salty little baguettes) and the deviled eggs. Champagne by the glass is a bonus!

Omelet was very dry, crepes were good but how can you go wrong with Nutella... Kids brunch was very lackluster, $4 for what looked like 1 egg, no fruit or any accompaniment. Meh experience.

Discontinued many of the things we used to like; complimentary little bread loaf, 3 course dinner. Mushroom soup was awful; way too much sherry, little mushroom flavor. Received wrong entree twice. Server sort of shook off comments. We used to like this place but it has greatly changed. Won’t be back.

We were celebrating a birthday and since both of us are ‘francophiles’, it’s our fave place to rendez-vous. We love their HAPPY HOUR....great hors d’oeuvres & small plates !! Their cocktails are wonderful and quite the bargain. Finishing off with their chocolate molten cake was, as always, delicieux!!! Our waitress was superb...she had a great sense of humor and was attentive to us....making our early evening getaway absolutely perfect! [Though I rated the food 5 stars...as it usually is....that night only the slider appetizer...hamburger...missed the mark as it was much too well-done....but the french fries were crisp, hot and yummy, as was the poutine—a high calorie heavenly combo....but it’s a birthday night and calories DON’T COUNT!]

Our party of three started out sharing the Pommes Frites. I ordinaraily do not order fries, but thise are exceptional and served with a hollandaise sauce as well as ketsup. Two in our party ordered the braised short rib served with cured tomatoes, herbs, and a home made pasta. This dish was heavy, but the beef was very tender and delicious. I brought 1/3 of mine home and enjoyed it for lunch the following day. Another member had the Boeuf Roti served with very tender beef, mushrooms, carrots, and brussel sprouts over a creamy polenta. This too was very hearty, but the leftovers were boxed up and taken home. There is lighter fare on the menu, but these were perfect for a sunday winter dinner. Service was attentive, but not overindulgent.

Food is always just ok (had a gift card to use). Noise was so loud that I could barely hear my girlfriend from across the table. Service was so so. Honestly surprised Salut is still in business with all the good restaurant options in the area.

The Service was awesome! The waiter explained the specials well, explained how it was prepared down to the chefs choices in ingredients. French American cuisine, lots of things I’ve never heard of. The waiter was very knowledgeable about everything. The food was awesome, my food had noodles and short ribs cooked to perfection, the noodles were made in house. Everything was done from scratch and I didn’t mind paying the price for it because it was crafted so well. They really put love into their menu. I would describe the atmosphere as vibrant and the volume was moderate, very easy to have a conversation. Definitely will be back for a special occasion, and will recommend to co-workers, friends, family.

Very good meal on Valentine’s Day. Seated promptly at our reservation time. Good service. We both enjoyed the french onion soup. Our entrees were very good. One entree was cool when served. Probably sat in kitchen for a little before being served. Otherwise would have been rated excellent. Creme bulee was excellent.
