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!

Felt very comfortable with the COVID protocols. The services was attentive and the food was outstanding. Despite the challenges with the current situation it was a very enjoyable dinner and as mentioned the food was great. No one can beat their baguettes!

My daughter and I had a wonderful dinner at Salut. We had the french onion soup, the seasonal squash ravioli dish and the salted caramel pot de creme for dessert - everything was wonderful! They had a good socially distanced crowd - nice to see them doing ok!

Given the pandemic we have been eating only on patios and I'm very concerned with inside dining. So this was our 1st time and I have to say that the set up made it ok. Everyone wore masks, the tables were socially distanced and we even had an air purifier behind us. The food and service was fabulous, we both had the Hanger steak and creme brulee. We definitely will be back.

I definitely miss the happy hour menu but the service and atmosphere was still great for a family with young children. We sat on the patio and appreciated generous distance between tables.

We had reservations on the patio but it was cold and rainy, so we bit the bullet and ate inside. The tables were very spread out and we really were not near anyone. It felt good to be here again and eat all our favorites that we hadn’t had in so long, mussels, onion soup, pomme frites. We had a lovely time and the food was delicious and we felt safe!

Great patio scene. The food is usually really good. My husband ordered his hamburger medium rare and it was well done. I ordered the beet salad with arugula and salmon. There were maybe 4 arugula leaves so it isn't really a "salad". The beets and salmon were wonderful though, just not what I was expecting. I hate to say but the service was bad. No one checked on us, asked if we wanted another drink, how was the food? we had to ask twice to have someone get our server. We go here often and will continue. It may have just been an off night.

Service was horrible! Server was very slow and never asked us if we wanted another beverage. Waited a long time to order a second drink which I had to order from the girl who brought us our food. Our server never even refilled our water glass. He gave us our tab and didn't ask if we wanted another drink which I did. This was a Monday night and it wasn't busy either. The salad I order was $18.95 and wasn't good. I don't know how you can make a Cobb salad for that much and at least not have it be good. I was really in the mood for a good cobb and I think it was the dressing. To much and not a good flavor. Anyway very disappointing. Don't think I will go back there since the last time I had a similar experience with the service and the food. Done.

The ambience is spot on, with a beautiful outdoor dining area. The service is wonderful, our waiter was helpful and nice. I had a rare petite filete and it was pretty good, although it did not have a distinct char the flavors were quite good. The fries were ok, although I wish I got mashed potatoes or something. All of the deserts we tried were great, and the bagguete was a great appetizer.

Disappointed in the Salmon entre. It was cooked properly but really lacking in flavor. Very bland!
Service was excellent and the noise level inside allowed for conversation w/o difficulty.

I love Salut St. Paul. One of my all time favorite neighborhood places. Went there for our first Covid-era night out and felt very safe. Well distanced tables (inside & out), masks on everyone except diners, sanitizer available & witnessed frequent wipe-downs of doors, handles, etc. Our meals were on-point as always, and the (cheaper) house wines are well chosen. Daughter had kids meal mac & cheese and ate it all...so good news there too. No complaints at all!

On Sunday of Labor Day weekend we had a 4:45 reservation on the Patio. They were over matched! This happens at Salut quite often. They had ONE server for the entire patio which had a dozen tables that were full. The loan server had no idea what she was doing and had no sense of how to serve all these people. We waited for a drink for 20 minutes until we realized she was waiting on tables that were seated after us. We told the manager on duty and he didn’t care. Salut has good food and terrific patio but the staff does not seem to know how to manage patrons even at 1/2 capacity. The food is not inexpensive so we are taking our business elsewhere.
