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.

We try to stop here whenever we are in the Twin Cities. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Can't ask for more!

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.

Nothing beats a smart, witty waitperson offering good advice on pretty singular food.

The food and atmosphere at Salut is fabulous. It was our second visit, and it was, again, delightful. The food is special, delicious, and worth the money. The scene is pleasant, quiet, and comfortable. We really appreciate Salut because it is the full package - it does not disappoint!

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

Guess it was an “Off” night.The dining room was not busy,yet the staff seemed to struggle to keep up.It appeared there was little communication between staff members.Our orders were confused upon delivery to the table(the diners had to direct the plate service),the Bernaise was not delivered to the table and additional bread that was requested was ignored.It was just a lazy effort(uncharacteristic).

unfortunately, our order was not entered or it was misplaced if it was entered. Other tables who were seated after us were finishing up their dinner by the time we got our food. The server did not tell us what happened but instead avoided us. We did not receive any sort of discount. My advice to the server (having been a server for many years) is to at least inform your table of what happened and go to the Manager to see if there is any concession available for the customers. The absolute worst thing to do is to avoid your customers without any explanation. I really enjoyed the restaurant, however, and will definitely come again.

We made the reservation because it was conveniently located for all involved. New Years Eve is a busy night, but the staff did a fine job of handling it. The food was good and reasonably priced. We will return.
