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.

 (Minneapolis)·Dined 2 days ago

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.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with a date. Bread was amazing, baked Brie was shockingly small. The Duck and Americana burger were superb. Highly recommend. Fries were such small pieces that they became a challenge to eat. Moderate noise level - great French American bar feel.

Salut has evolved into the "go-to" dining spot at 50th and France. The service is friendly and fun. The food is very good. The parking is easy. The cocktails are creative..... What's not to like?

Restaurant did not open it's doors at 11AM as their website and our reservation was scheduled. COLD and windy 15 minute wait. NO APOLOGIES when doors were finally opened. No offers for a warm drink once we were inside. Lost my appetite. Recommended this place for my birthday with friends...and will never again. Our chicken and smoked salmon crepes were fine as well as dessert. Coffee was weak.

As always the bar was fabulous. Great drinks and even better service. We had the seafood tower and several entrees and side dishes all delicious. The downside was dessert and coffee. We never got our coffee. It was on our tab and we had to have it adjusted because when we brought it to our servers attention she did not offer to correct the issue she just corrected the tab. Weird. We will return we gave always had great service and food. This was a hiccup we hope.

We eat at Salut on a fairly regular basis, maybe once or twice a month. On our recent visit I ordered something I had never ordered there, the grilled shrimp entree. While it was good...I thought that it was very over priced for what you get. I was served 4 or 5 medium to small sized shrimp and some green beans. All for the price of $26 !! I will probably be visiting Salut again but will not order that again. And I will most likely ask a few more questions as to what you actually get with any particular entree order.

Salut is a favorite of ours, and they've upped their game a bit at this last visit. Drinks were well made, nice wine selections, moderately priced but the pours are getting a bit smaller! The seafood tower is always fresh (glad the hot towels are back, which departed a few years ago), steaks well done, great french fries. They have brought back more specials and added to their fish menu after downsizing several years ago. This visit two of us had a special, stuffed dover sole with crab, and a great burrata heirloom tomato salad. Excellent. Our waitress was great and observant, we felt the restaurant was a bit lacking in bus personnel to clear and pay attention to messy tables. But that is typical in Minneapolis this summer.

I have had real inconsistent meals at Salut over the last few months. I do not know if there is turnover in the kitchen but the food is not as good as it was. Disappointed in this. My business lunch there was to give it another chance...don't know if and when I will go back. Lots of competition in Minneapolis restaurant scene and new places on 50th and France.

I had not been to Salut for awhile and it was nice to be back again! I had the Moule and Frites; the mussels were delicious and there was lots of warm crusty French bread to soak up all the delicious broth!
The waitress, although a bit over friendly, was less than straight forward in her communication. Example, "Would you like bernaise sauce with your frites?" The bernaise was delicious ; however when the bill arrived we were charged an extra $2.50 for it. The waitress did not specify there was an additional charge...just asked us "would you like it?" Lesson learned.....always ask for clarification.
My friend missed happy hour and when she arrived decided on a glass of zinfandel. There was
no information offered around what the choices/prices were, a glass was brought. When the bill arrived the zinfandel was $12/glass...another lesson learned....always clarify.
The waitress also approached and asked at least four times if we would like to order an appetizer while we waited for our 4th party member to arrive. Bottom line, if we said no the first time you asked we more than likely are not going to change our mind the second, third, and fourth times.
This sort of wait service is not straight forward and leaves me with a less than great feeling about returning. A waiter/waitress is there to do a job not badger the customer into spending more money or be less than honest about what the charges are.
