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.

The food was delicious. Our server recommended the Venison Special and it was outstanding. We also had a starter of 6 Blue Point Oysters and shared the Lemon Curd dessert.

we each had salmon, each piece was substantially different in size. it appeared to be microwaved, and came with brussel sprouts that were uncooked. DO NOT ORDER THE SALMON!

Everything on the menu looks divine. I ordered the lamb meal. The sauce on the lamb was so overly strong it was nearly impossible to eat. The meat was tender, the rice was lovely, the pita bread that came with it was amazingly fresh and tender and tasty. But the main lamb dish was just overwhelmed by the sauce that was put on it. It was drowning in it. We also had the calamari appetizer which was good to very good. My friend had the crispy coated chicken which was good. Kind of dry. But with a coated fried meat it can be understandable. Service was good to very good. Portion sizes were generous. Nothing to complain about really, but it just wasn't "fabulous" like I was hoping for.

Positives: Wife's steak was best she had ever eaten. "Manfashion" drink was wonderful. Service ("Sam") was attentive w/o being obtrusive.
So-so: Appetizers were tasty but tiny for the price.
Negatives: French onion soup was very bland & Croque Madam was way too salty.
Bill w tip (only two alcohol drinks, two teas, no dessert) for table of four= $248.

The layout is perfect for safety: High ceilings and tables well separated. The food was pretty good. The Server was new and a bit confused about things but worked hard so was tipped well.

The bread was very good. My French onion soup was not as tasty as I would like. Similarly, with my wife's crab cake which was also quite small. The garlic mushrooms were very good except for some fairly inedible stems. I thought my lamb was very good.

We were cheerfully greeted by the hostess & immediately seated(we had a reservation). The wait staff were prompt, checked in with us throughout our meal. We ordered the short rib & she suggested we might want to share the entree. I’m certainly glad we did because the serving was very large. It was absolutely delicious.

Roasted half chicken is one of the best things on the menu.
We also had one of. the 3 course offerings - the beef medallions. Also very good.
Burgers always tasty. Fries are delish.

We had a 8:15 pm reservation. Restaurant was busy we ordered drinks, a soup and entrees. When orders came out they were mixed up, as we headed toward dessert we ordered a dessert to split, latte and espresso. Latte never came , they were cleaning the restaurant and rushed us out. We didn't feel welcomed and meals were not as good as they usually are. Less meat and poor overall quality.

Host staff had no idea how to seat a reservation. She kept going back and forth.

Egg shells in the crab cake.

So loud. Now i recalled why we didn't go there. Something need to be done to improve that

Always reliable Salut provides very good food and service, despite a couple of pandemic wrinkles. Several of the sparkling wines on the menu were out of stock and since they are a bit understaffed now, waits for service were a bit longer than ususal and things are a little rocky. My crepes arrived a bit less than hot and water refills had to be requested. All in all, still a good place to eat.

The food was very basic and nothing that tasted like a real chef had created the menu. For a place that was votes BEST French restaurant, they can do much better.

Staff was very nice and studious, however, for the price, this place should have better food. We will not be returning, there's too many other restaurants with good food. I think this place is busy simply due to location.

We went early so it was a little quieter inside as most seemed to go outside to enjoy the weather. We enjoyed the escargot and oysters along with the bread for dipping in the melted butter from the escargot - delicious! The Chicken Paillard (spelling?) and the Filet Mignon were also delicious!

A super brunch menu to celebrate our daughter’s bday
The hostess went over and above. Since it probable rain she called me in the morning to check if I still wanted outside dining. She said if we decided to come inside Salut could accommodate us.

Would highly recommend
Great service and delicious food

Parking isn't bad with a ramp just behind it. Food was actually very good. Waitress was slow to take our order, and there were a few flys around our table.
