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 really love Salut and must get there about once each month. It’s our go-to place when we get a craving for fresh oysters! The restaurant is really on its game and is consistently excellent. Highly recommended!

Very nice experience. Food very well prepared although the calamari a bit dry and bland. Oysters and escargot were wonderful. Steak sandwich skimps a bit on the steak but very good otherwise. Nice wine by the glass selections.

I’m not sure what you mean by noise level but it was very pleasant and we could converse without raising our voices. Our server was very nice and efficient. Osvaldo(?). The food was delicious escargots, crab cakes, duck and lamb. The desserts were also amazing!!

Our wonderful waiter made our night perfect.
He let us in the right direction all night. The veal cheeks were Fabulous.
The walleye too.
The hostess checked on us dressed in her perfect NYE 2022 attire. So fun.
A older man with a cane walked out just before us. Side Walk & street very slippery….. he fell outside your place.
Maybe salt or sand & make sure people can see curb.
Another of your guests helped me get him up & in his car.
All is well!

After years of enjoying dining at Salut, sadly, we will not likely go again. They now charge for their french bread, the menu is over priced and they have an add on surcharge for employee benefits. I think that is part of being in business and they should put it in the prices, which are already higher than other places. The help is unenthusiastic. The wine is pretty good. We had a hard time, with two glasses of wine, dining for $100. Neither of us ordered what we wanted because the prices were higher than we were willing to pay. I had the tenderloin tips which were overdone, the french fries, which have always been superior were cold. Overall, just a lousy dining experience.

The quality of food served has declined since the pandemic started. My wife's Crlque Madame was tasteless; and the frites which are normally served in a separate cup to keep them crispy, were soggy and on the same plate as the sandwich. It appears that this restaurant is cutting corners; so we will be cutting this restaurant from the list that we frequent.

Had the duck. Somewhat uninspired. Small portion. That was 7 ounces?! Must have ordered off the kiddie menu. Duck meat was fine (acceptably medium rare) but at least 2 of the 7 oz. was skin. I do enjoy crispy duck skin; just like a little duck meat to go with it.

Wife had the curry lamb. That was excellent. In the unlikely event I ever return, I would order that.

Service was fine. Free convenient parking. Food, wine and drinks overpriced. Must be due to the chic downtown Edina location. (Let them eat cake!) The place could use an intervention from Chef Ramsay.

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.
