French
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.

Service was great. Our server was very friendly. The manager made a point to stop by our table and check on us on multiple occasions. Our water was always full & plates cleaned up in a timely matter.

Food was great! We had the jumbo shrimp, bread, moules frites and hanger steak. Would order all of it again in a heartbeat.

Will be back!

So good! Really enjoyed our food. They were very accomodating. At the bar staff was talking abouy how much they made off tables that had just left which was unprofessional and off-putting.

Both had the fork Chicken sandwich, fries were excellent, the sandwiches totally tasteless, no seasoning, lukewarm, unappealing. Server said it was popular so it must have been the prep. Left hungry.

Wonderful night. Covid safe. Bartender came to our table to discuss the drinks we ordered. What a great guy and very informative. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. Steak sandwich was super tasty and the salad was fresh and light. Walleye was scrumptious. Plus a nice cocktail and wine menu.
A great night!!!

I've been to this place a couple times - the food is really good. Getting a table is a challenge. This time, I thought I'd book in advance for an early seating, but I still got the 'run of the house,' i.e. the worst table possible. After a long week, it would have been great to unwind with a nice cocktail and meal, but it wasn't meant to be. I realize that capacity constraints are an issue, but that early in the evening? They were insistent on seating me under bring lights on a flight path. They were very polite, but adamant that all the decent empty tables had someone else's name on them. I decided to leave.

Friendly and quick service, tasty cocktails, and that hanger steak was out-freaking-standing! It seemed they were doing a good job of seating tables even further apart than minimally necessary for covid-related safety reasons, which was appreciated.

I went here for some happy hour drinks with friends. They had a decent array of choices to choose from. However, I found their happy hour food selection wanting. There were very few options and most were not appealing.

Oh my goodness the food, drinks and service at Salut are always terrific and this time was no exception. My husband had the flank steak and it was done very rare - exactly the way he likes it. The oysters were yummy, my smokin' cosmo was wonderful as always, and I loved my Cobb salad. It was a little breezy sitting on the side, but we felt safe being outside. Our server Kate was perfectly attentive.

With. COVID limited menu you would think the dishes served would be very good. My wife and I ordered filters and they were not Dr St, somewhat cold and poor quality. French Onion soup lacked cheese and flavor. Gimme fries were greasy and soggy. Mussels over half of them were not open. Have dined at this neighborhood spot a lot over the last four years. But the quality, flavors and value was a huge miss on this visit. Not a way to keep customers in an already difficult dining environment.
