About Salut Bar Americain - St. Paul
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.

Salut Bar Americain - St. Paul Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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 have enjoyed Salut, in both the Edina and St. Paul locations, more times than I can count. For the last four years, we have picked Salut St. Paul for our New Years Eve dinner. We've enjoyed it, until this year. The space seemed more cramped than usual (it was very busy), and it was drafty. We even changed seating locations, but it didn't help much. Three of us picked standard items from the menu, but I picked the special, which was an 8oz filet (I ordered medium rare) with a lobster and crab sauce with fried asparagus and scalloped potatoes. This is where things went down hill. The first filet came out medium well, so I sent it back. By the time the replacement came, the family was done with their meals, which were quite good. The leftovers were boxed up and everyone was ready to go. The replacement steak was perfect and the sauce was quite good. I ate two or three bites and boxed it up to take home with the rest. They didn't charge me for the single glass of wine, which didn't really compensate for the interruption the overcook steak caused in the whole experience of our meal and time together. If I'm going to spend over $200 on a meal for four, everything should be right the first time. We'll probably eat at Salut again, esp. for lunch, but we'll probably think about other options for dinner in the future. The wait staff did a great job and were pleasant throughout the night.
I was there in the evening on New Year's Eve. 630pm. Seated right away. Nice table. Extremely loud. Couldn't talk to my wife. Food was on expensive side My seafood stew. Boolliabais was not seasoned at all. Tasted like water. I needed to salt and pepper it heavily. Wife had the over priced special. It also was not seasoned at all and very bland. Service was fine. Would not go back. Too many other better places to eat in Saint Paul
