Salut Bar Americain - St. Paul

Best mussels I've ever had! The pomme frites were comparable to much more expensive restaurants.
Service was attentive and helpful.
The only small downside was the "energetic" noise level.
We plan to go back soon.
Normally, we love this place. It's one of the few places in the area were we can make a reservation and get seated within 5 mintes. Our initial waitress was a "Debbie Downer" she presented the specials in a negative way and we hadn't even asked. By the time she got done, she had me talked out of dishes I hadn't even thought about ordering.
Made me think maybe she didnt like the good there.
The Manager was awesome, he recitified the situation by assigning us a new server. The food was great. Our second server was amazing!
Suggestion: maybe have your servers spend time shadowing each other from time to time for a knowledge & a tips & tricks swap. Sometimes it's helpful to see how your co-workers interact with the customer.
Over all though, breakfast turned out nice!
Disappointed. Salads were limp and obviously from a giant plastic tub and the burger was pre-formed and dense. I remember fresher food but it's been maybe five years. Too bad.
Drinks a little expensive.
While the food was good, although overpriced, the service was very poor. It was as though our table was invisible to the waitress. It was my husband's birthday, of which she never mentioned until we complained to the manager (this had been noted at time the reservation was made). We had ordered a second aperitif drink that was never brought out. The food came out really quickly by someone from the kitchen and we had to sit and wait for our drink order to be delivered to us. At that time, the second aperitif was cancelled. All in all, a poor experience, and although they did give us a $25 gift card to return, I feel sure it will never be used by us.
This was some of the worst service I have received from a restaurant in this price range in a long time. $37 Filet was cooked completely wrong and took an extra 15 minutes to receive back from an obvious microwave reheat. Bouillabaisse had hardly any flavor. Waited way to long for drink orders. The only positive in the experience was honestly the Host that greeted us when arriving. She was very nice and made us feel welcome, and the Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce, super tasty! Other than that the ambiance was nice... Will not be returning.
Well crafted food offerings that deliver on the promise of American French fusion.
Food was excellent and the service was super friendly despite being a busy holiday.
We had a nice Valentines day dinner here. Steak and walleye were great, waitress was slow but we were in no rush. Wine and dessert were fantastic.
We always live the good. Gallentines with our server didn't quite work. He wasnt all that invested in us.
Again, a wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner. Your shrimp cocktail is the best we have ever had. Your specials were great. And jennifer our service made the night.
The calamari was undercooked with to many peppers mixed in. We ordered the short ribs and received one small short rib surounded by pasta. Two dollars worth of meat for twentyfour dollars.
Great location on Grand Avenue. Cozy atmosphere. Wait staff is great.
My grandson and I both had the steak. They were both done very nicely but were very tough.
We loved Todd our server who contributed to a lovely birthday lunch.
Salute never disappoints!
Salut, a good French Bistro in Saint Paul. The menu is authentic, though it does lack that "artisanal" touch that one might expect from a popular french kitchen. The decor is cozy and welcoming. Service is attentive and friendly. Salut has one BIG plus, adjacent and free parking.
We were there for brunch. A nice selection of brunch items. I was happy the noise level was low. Lovely restaurant.
I have eaten here many many times and have always loved it. We dined there on Saturday evening and the whole experience was the food was not to the level we are used to. Very frustrating because we paid a lot of money for food that just did not taste good
Salute is consistent and our favorite place! Always look forward to going to Salute. St. Paul is the perfect location!
Super great service and accommodated my larger than expected party. Incredible food and we all left full and happy!
From Charlie at the bar to Jennifer our server, I/we had a lovely evening!
I would highly recommend "Ze French Onion Soup Burger." As well, my friend really enjoyed the "Wild Mushroom Short Rib Pappardelle." Great atmosphere - not too quiet yet not loud.
Food was served warm, not hot! Had to wait a long time before waiter came round for us to send back.
I love this place. Food is always good, servers are friendly and attentive and they have a nice wine and drink selection. Highly recommend.
I didn’t understand your rating on noise level. I found it excellent, perfect tor conversation.
The food is always delicious and the waitstaff, while busy, is attentive.
Went with out with some friends the food was great. Love the berry drink and the oysters.
New year’s lunch with friends in a charming place. Great food and drink. Newly redecorated dining area is very nice. A go-to place for an elegant lunch. Never any sense of being rushed
Book club discussion was much more fun with good food and drink
We visited on a Saturday evening - 5pm reservation. As the place filled up, the noise level increased, and there were delays in service as the staff came on-duty, organized themselves, and adjusted to the workload. Once food was ordered, things settled into a well-timed rhythm, with each course arriving right on time, not too early or late. Delivery was courteous and accurate, and the food was excellent. I especially like their preparation and presentation of Hanger Steak; this is one my absolute favorites, and I'll return for it again. I only regret that I didn't have room for dessert.
Great all around
8 HS friends from the class of 1961 gatherrd at Salut for lunch this past week. It is a monthly occurrence at different restaurants, and January brought us to Salut. It was my turn to make the arrangements, and I believe all were more than satisfied with their food, the service, and the ambience. I especially noticed how easily we could converse without a lot of noise interfering with the ability to hear everyone. Our server was very accommodating, friendly, and helpful, too. All in all, a very nice experience. Thank you!
We go to Salute at least once a month. As always, it was a pleasant experience.
Server was ok. He wasn't super diligent and a little awkward and sloppy. He kind of ran into me/my chair at one point and didn't even acknowledge it...
Lovely meal for our son’s 36th birthday. We had a great time.
The food was excellent. We have the roasted chicken and it was amazing. We had a wonderful waiter but the slow was a bit slow in coming. It’s a fun place but a little loud. Great fun!
So good - as always! Try the calamari appetizer -- it is FABULOUS!
We love Salut for all of our special occasions! Food is great and the staff is always wonderful! Willie did a great job!
We came early on New Years Eve (4:30 res).
Service started out great then much less attentive as the server got busier.
Main problem was our walleye was extremely overcooked as were the green beans. The entire plate was swimming in a watery sauce...YUK!! Server never asked about our food nor did he give us an opening to give feedback. Very Disappointing 🤬
Absolute terrible service. It was not a busy night and we waited forever for drinks without an option for a second round. Plates were scorching hot with wilted micro greens that clearly sat in the window for way too long. No help in sight from management or other staff this was a disappointing visit.
