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. The setting evokes a classic Parisian bistro/restaurant. The service is spirited, confident and capably executed. 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 or two Event Spaces, Salut celebrates the French restaurant’s essential qualities while dispensing of 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 takeout or dine in!

    Food was top-notch across the board, as usual. Service was super friendly, but not as attentive as we expect at this price point, esp given the 5% wellness upcharge. Drinks and water sat empty after our entrées arrived, and we were well into our meal before we could (politely) get server's attention for refills. Then we saw the drinks sitting ready at the bar for quite awhile before they were brought to the table. Lots of obvious staff chit chat and dancing at the server station, rather than paying attention to customers.

    Unfortunately, everything about Salut has declined. Food was average at best ( burger, fries, calamari). The salad we ordered was awful. Soggy, small, and pretty terrible. And it’s so pricey for what you get. We used to love this place, but unfortunately won’t be back anytime soon.

    The special was lobster bisque . It came with the soup poured over the top of a large piece of baguette. Essentially a bowl of bread. That made it messy and hard to eat. Also a great deal of "filler" to fill up the big bowl. Odd I thought. Service was slow. The dessert was not as I remembered it. Usually love Salut and have had many wonderful meals there. Maybe just an off night. Will be back again and recommend giving it a try.

    Our new favorite restaurant! The food and service were both superb. The price of our meals was right on, given the high quality of our meals. We started our meal with calamari and mussels, followed that with caesar salad and roasted butternut squash and burrata salad. For our main courses, we had cassoulet and crab cake oscar. For desert, we shared a creme brulee. Everything was so delicious! We are looking forward to going back!

    My go-to place to impress my date and have a great discussion. Love the artwork, and the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Easy place to find. I can always park on the street if their lot is full. A place to go on a "serious" date.

    We had reserved a booth in the bar. However, previous diners were still there. We were eventually seated in a booth in the dining room which was very nice. It was quite a wait but our server was very good and the rest of the staff was very apologetic. Food was exceptional! I had the croque monsiouer and my spouse had the steak sandwich.

    Our server was amazing as was our food and our drinks. The only unfortunate experience, which has no reflection on this venue at all, is that a family decided to bring their newborn child to New Year’s Eve dinner, so that we could listen to a cry, the entire dinner through again no reflection on salute.

    We made an Open Table reservation prior to an evening concert. We were greeted and seated immediately, and our server bent over backwards to get our meals to us in record time. When we thanked him he modestly stated that it was a team effort by managers and kitchen staff. Ironically we all ordered burgers! They were juicy, prepared to order and your fries are always great. Next time we’ll plan a more relaxing dinner with drinks and dessert!

    Eating at Salut used to be special but it has really gone downhill. Ordered croissants which tastes stale. They were not flakey French croissants, tasted like they had just come out of a bag and reheated. They were out of the quiche that I ordered so I had the eggs Benedict Florentine. The eggs were done perfectly but the hollandaise was way too much. Wasn’t hot and very salty. I scraped most of it off and ate about half of the meal. Expensive meal and I can’t say any of it was good. Brought my mother and niece there for our Christmas celebration and it was really disappointing. I don’t recommend it here for breakfast.

    Salut didn't seem quite up to the high standards and very positive experience we have had in the past. But it is close to the holidays and the restaurant was crowded. We've always liked their baguette which you have to pay for now, but this time is wasn't so tasty and kinda hard. I had the Julia Child lobster bisque. Very tasty with chunks of lobster meat, but a bit too salty for my tastes. And those were the smallest lobster tails I had ever seen. But overall Salut continues to be a reliable choice.

    Salut rarely fails to meet expectations. The decor is warm and bright, the ambience is lively, but not so much that you can't hold a conversation. The service is impeccable. I have to say that Pearl is one of the kindest, most enjoyable servers I've come across in many years. She is a delight. Salut, indoors or out, is a delightful spot for recognizable comfort food with a French bistro twist.

    The service was lovely as was the ambiance. We’ve eaten here before but this experience made us wish we would’ve gone elsewhere. The food was just okay, and the prices were steep. We even had to pay for two tiny baguettes with plain butter. They did give us two petite desserts for 7 of us to share for our two celebrations.
