French
We are the brasserie down the block! Warm and welcoming, with an urbane wit and urban sensibility, it’s an afternoon hangout and an evening refuge with our bar open an hour after our kitchen closes. 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 snooty sommeliers. From the welcoming wine list, to the playful décor, to the genial buzz in the dining room, and two Event Spaces, 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. Call us to book one of our Family Style Feasts for carryout! Reservations required for all seatings (Covid-19 mandate). Please plan ahead!

I am a regular at Salut but must say I was very disappointed with the food quality. My salad was dry, the Parmesan crisps were stale and my steak undercooked. My husbands meal was good but mine was awful. Service was good but for a $20 salad, it should be good.

I usually have great food at Salut but not this time. The beef medallions were overcooked and dry. I should have sent them back, but didn't.
The service started good and then the server disappeared. I waited a long time to order a second glass of wine; then, there was a long wait until the wine came.

We enjoyed our dinner! Atmostphere was inline with what we expected, high wine prices kept us from getting a bottle, but food and service was excellent!

Salut is always a nice place to gather with friends. I was very disappointed in the minimal Happy Hour selections and no food on the menu. It used to be a great place for Happy Hour. Not anymore

I understand why it’s happening now but I was very disappointed at the limited number of items on menu. Shrimp cocktail was really great but the most I’ve had to pay for that is $15.00. Also think trust me when I say “mine is 10 times better!

It was good. Server forgot to put our order in so food took forever. Food was a little bland.

It was lovely to be back. The arrangement of the tables makes it feel very safe. The food was delicious, but the walleye was skimpy. There was nothing to sop up the lemon caper sauce with—it needed bread or rice or something. There was no acknowledgement of my birthday even though the reservation mentioned it. Service was great. I’d go there again in a minute. I’d order the fish again. It was delicious.

I had salmon on the three course Sunday Supper. Overall, the food was great except:
1. The asparagus was tough.
2. I enjoyed the topping on the salmon, but it was very spicy (even hot). That was OK for me but it might be overwhelming for some.

We love going to Salut on Grand, the service is lovely and the food is great. I just wish they had any real options for vegans/plant based eaters. I am very sentimental about Salut and have many amazing memories, and I am never disappointed when I go back.

The food was good, and the service was prompt. It was good enough to return but probably not good enough to rave about. I was there by myself, and I’m not sure how enthusiastic the servers are about a party of one. I tip well, but they won’t get rich off me. It is a good restaurant, and I would recommend it.

Cobb salad was not very good and was overpriced. Chicken was overdone. Burger was pretty good, but extremely greasy to the point it made the bun a little soggy.

Food & service are always great! They've spaced everything out nicely.
The noise level is enough to make it upbeat but not deafening!

We love this place so much and it always hits the spot. There were a couple tables close by that were being rowdy and a little frustrating but I know that that’s not Salut’s fault. The food was amazing and our server Charlie was super kind and enjoyable. Great spot

This has always been a go - to place for me and my husband. It is a great date night, whether you feel like sandwiches and beer or steak and wine. Can’t wait until the patio opens up again, too.

I felt totally comfortable. It feels like pre-pandemic dining yet the tables are spaced, they have air purification machines and follow mask protocol. The food and service are what you expect from Salut. All and all, a great experience.

My wife and I had a great time on Valentine's Day. It had been a while since we had been out to eat with COVID and it was a much-needed break away. We sat on a high top in the bar, but there was only one other table in the area, and it felt very private. The bartender, Charlie, was helpful and was very attentive to our needs, but we didn't feel smothered. The food was outstanding as usual.
