Salut Bar Americain - St. Paul 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, 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. In this sense, Salut is a dual citizen: Authentically French! Book the Le Grand Boeuf family-style feast, serving 8-10 people.

While the ambiance is lovely, the food is overpriced and mediocre. The service is just so-so. So many great restaurants to try out there. Will enjoy summer patio for happy hour.

The food was very good, but our waitress was only fair. Unfortunately we were seated near the kitchen/prep area where there was a lot of traffic and commotion. I have been to Salut before and even tho it was very busy, the service was much better. I plan to dine at Salut again despite this less than stellar visit.

Very disappointing for the second time. Service was non existent food was sub par. I had the worst Cesar salad I have ever had. The lettuce was brown and I have had better salad dressing at Perkins. I am assuming we got poor service, bad food, and a Horrible table in the back room because it was Valentines Day. This restaurant used to be one of our favorites.

Our second visit and equal in quality to the first. Food was very good although my apple pastry dessert was NOT. Service is exceptional; our server was knowledgeable and when she couldn't answer a question, she found someone who could. The bar is great, stylish and staffed by excellent bartenders. We made the mistake of ordering rail drinks and were disappointed in the quality of their house gin. Our bad. The martinis we usually order are well made but the generic ones are mediocre at best. Still one of our favorite places to eat and have a drink.

My first experience with Salut was amazing! A girlfriend and I celebrated Galentine’s Day with amazing food, great wine and exceptional service. I can’t speak highly enough of this restaurant. I’ll definitely be back again and again.

Good food, attentive, but not annoying servers. The host was kind to allow us to switch from a table where neighboring guests were barely two feet away, to a booth. Their happy hour menu is delicious and well-priced. I've had the shrimp po' boy twice now and it was delicious both times.

Salut is my fav! It’s my choice for my birthday celebration every year for the last decade! The Pomme Frites are to die for...and I dream of that Crab Cake Oscar regularly. Our server, Kyle, was super busy on a Friday night but still took the time to make my day special. Every time I come in Salut gets better and better. See you again soon for patio season!

Food was delicious as always. However, was disappointed that they now charge for bread. Would recommend the seafood oscar crêpes, creamy hash, and cappuccinos. The bread is worth paying for (the whipped butter is great), but it was definitely better when it was gratuit.

We have had both business lunches there as well as a great place for a get together with friends and it never disappoints. The food is consistently delicious (although my quiche was a bit small) and the service is second to none. We also find the prices to be fair for the food quality. Once again, we enjoyed our visit there.

Eight of us met for a post-holiday lunch. Great service. Everyone loved their selection. Many excellent and affordable menu options. Includes great baguette. Easy to talk. Not loud. In the summer, the patio is wonderful. I also know the Happy Hour is a good value. Reservations are good to have. Staff is very accommodating
