Salut Bar Americain - St. Paul
Book your next event with us
We celebrated my granddaughter’s 9th birthday! Our server was great, the food delicious and a memorable time for our family.
Nice variety of options. The mussels in dijon sauce was excellent.
We had brunch on Fathers Day, and the restaurant was crowded and understaffed. We waited a full hour between the time we were seated and when our food was served. We were fairly upset about the wait UNTIL we got the food, which was absolutely fantastic!!! The wait was absolutely worth it - although I might try to be there on a non-holiday in the future.
It's great to see that the food menu has been elevated. We have been coming to this neighborhood spot for a while and there was a time when food and service were so so. The last 3 weeks, we have eaten on several occasions and we were pleasantly amazed by how well everything was done - from attentive service to delicious food.
Great food and service. A little noisy by the kitchen, but wonderful dinner overall.
We ate on the patio. It was a great experience. Our waiter was exceptional, and the food was fabulous.
Was able to get us in right away on a Friday night which was great. We could not tell you our servers name as she never introduced herself. Everything took awhile to get to us drinks, app, entree. Even had people receive drinks and app that sat down after us. She seemed more interested in the elderly couple behind us (my wife’s in her late 20’s and I my mid 30’s). Drinks we did order were great. Cheese plate was okay, good variety. We love seafood and ordered the shellfish tower. With this being our first time to Salut it would have been great to know that this dish is served completely over ice, cold crab and lobster was a slight surprise. The ambiance was very pleasant. The big thing for us is customer service. I want to give you my money, I want to tip my server generously but I don’t feel great about it when it feels transactional and not an experience.
Great food, wonderful patio seating. A good taste of France
Good food. Enjoyable drinks. Cheese plate was yummy. Pork chop was good!
A mini-reunion of old professional colleagues after several years. Weather was perfect for an outstanding patio venue. Food was OK, & service was slow.
Awesome food, service, couldn't have had a better first time experience. Our waitress was on point with refills, asking questions, she answered some as well. Over all 10 out of 10
Kitchen was overwhelmed for Father’s Day although it didn’t seem that busy. Food and service were unreasonably slow.
We celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary there and LOVED it! It was our first time there and definitely would go back! Thank you!
Overall, it was okay. A burger for $16 seems high. Drinks are overpriced. The server did not check on us after we got our food, until we were already done eating. That was very disappointing.
Wonderful night out.
Been here many times, though not in the last year. Have to say, still love this restaurant but found the food to be disappointing this time around. Too much time in between courses, food over cooked and lacking that ‘fresh’ French flavor. Don’t know if there’s been a change in leadership or just a general feeling of mundane routine in the kitchen, but it showed in what was presented at the table.
I go to Salut several times a year for special occasions and date nights and am usually impressed in every way. This time was different, which was a shame, since I was there for an anniversary dinner with my husband. We sat inside , as the patio was packed and I didn't want to wait, which was fine. Our waitress appeared to only be attending to inside tables (not busy) but had an attitude that made us feel rushed throughout the dinner. the pace of the meal was hasty and we weren't even asked about dessert before being presented with the bill. My food wasn't cold but certainly wasn't hot and my husband's chicken was "rubbery" and overcooked. I'm disappointed because I've had such good experiences here in the past.
Friends getting together for lunch. Had a great time and a great meal
Host was so rude to our party. Totally made up by servers and food. Get rid of the negative host and your business will be near perfect.
Great food! Such a nice place to sit and enjoy!! Attentive wait staff.
The food was very good off the happy hour and regular menu. The service was a little uneven but think the server had her hands full with the volume.
Very pretty restaurant. Good food and very attentive waitress
We had an awesome experience at Salut on Grand Avenue this past Saturday. We were celebrating my daughter’s graduation from St Thomas. Our customer service was great from the manager adjusting our reservation time for 9 people, the hostesses and their welcome and helping us to sit outside, and our server Kyle. And the food was great! We highly recommend! Thank you!
Reserved table for 10 for birthday party. They gave us a private table in a smaller room off the main restaurant which was perfect for our needs. Service was attentive and the food was really good. I appreciated the ability to have space to ourselves for the celebration.
First time for my guest who loved the menu options and became a fan of the french fries with bernaise sauce. And my guest introduced me to the baked brie. Service was excellent and we had a lovely meal without being rushed. Great experience.
Everything was great except service was slow. It took about 40 min from order to food being served. I think that for a business lunch clientele, that is too slow.
Awesome! Martinis price is high at $16.00. Really? Grey Goose vodka martini is typically around 12-15 max. Even at high end steak house. Maybe take a look at that? Otherwise it was a great meal!!
Excellent ambiance; food is good. Unfortunately the service was not that good this time and honestly, the service was good the other times I went there.
Went to celebrate my husbands birthday. Food and drinks were very good. Staff was friendly.
We used to love this place. The quality has gone down a lot. The server took forever to come EVERY time. We had to ask several times for our table to get cleaned. The oysters had hard pieces in them from not being properly shocked. The steak was so seasoned our guest couldn't finish it because it just tasted like pepper. The server messed up in the kids order and added an extra meal. They said to just eat it because it was already made, but they charged us for it! How disappointing.
Waitress was awesome. Food was awesome. It was a good time. I’ll be back.
Good food and great service. Fun place to go. Would highly recommend to friends for high casual experience
my wife's favorite restaurant and I love to take her there.
Actually, we really love all things about Salut Bar American-St. Paul.
Always split a Crème brûlée for dessert.
Great place for brunch! Everything we ordered (Floentine Benedict, Quich Lorraine and cocktails) was delicious. It was to cold to sit outside but will be back to enjoy their patio.
We were a party of five out to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. She spent a year studying abroad in France, so it was a nice match with that experience, and she was thrilled to see snails on the menu. She loved the snails and her entree, the Crab Cake Oscar. The rest of us enjoyed our salads and entrees. Our waitress was attentive and kept us up to date on our slow-arriving food while keeping us occupied and fed with three wonderful baguettes with butter and olive oil. The total bill with tip was a little north of $210, which seemed reasonable for the experience.
My partner and I celebrated my birthday there. Service was excellent, and the food was outstanding. We would go back in a heartbeat. The server was thoughtful, but not intrusive, and we both agreed that the food could not have been better. My partner is gluten-free, and the menu accommodated this very well. Price and value were excellent.
We love Salut! Been there many times for their excellent holiday buffet! For regular dining, their menu is fun and super quality!!
Plan to go some time soon! You’ll feel like your in Paris...our son lived there for 12 years and just moved to Spain 🇪🇸 but will return!!
Salut to you!!
By the way, the hostess on Mother’s Day was an outstanding young lady... cute, creative and a perfect choice for a first impression...don’t lose her!!
All the challenges that come with a buffet. Luke warm food, tasteless salads, etc. I have had good meals here in the past but this'll be my last over priced buffet at Salut.
