    Unfortunately, it took a little under 2 hours to get the entree to the table. 7p res, ate at almost 9. We were served delicious drinks until then, but 3 out of 4 entrees were really cold when brought to the table. Beautiful restaurant for drinks, but the food was not what we were hoping for

    My husband and I had their Caesar to start (large enough for 2 people to split), and the Seabass and Pork Chop. It was the best pork chop I've ever had - a bit spicy but well balanced. Everything was fantastic! I'll definitely be returning every time I'm in Dayton for work.

    I made reservations through OpenTable yesterday. Staff called to see if we would like to eat inside or out. We chose to eat outside due to the beautiful weather. We were there about five and the sun was able to get under the umbrellas, so staff from out of their way to adjust an umbrella from another table to make sure that we weren’t getting blinded by the sun. Staff And servers were very attentive, or a joy to watch staff interact with each other, and service was outstanding. When we initially arrived, my husband had eaten something that did not agree with him and asked for a club soda. He our tender offered to make him a fresh ginger ale which was awesome and worked wonders in minutes. We keep coming back to this restaurant because we enjoy it so much

    My daughter and I enjoyed dining at Salar for the very first time. We were headed to the Schuster afterward. We loved the ambience! We nearly had the whole place to ourselves, at 5:00 on a Thursday! The food was delicious (beef empanadas, salmon and beef saltado) and the cocktails were fun and unique. Dan, our server, took great care of us. Can’t wait to return!

    Have not been to Salar in some time but came back for a pre show dinner. Definitely a premium priced restaurant. It just was not a premium experience. The cocktails ("The Salar") and appetizers (calamari) were great. The dinner I had (Lamb shank) was overcooked and dry. Just not really that good. My wife liked her pork chop which I also likes. Our guests were so so on their food. One had the mushroom dish which was a pile of french fries and some rice with a few mushrooms. Just very disappointing. We live south so will hope the new Centerville location is better.

    We ate outside on the patio. Our server was super friendly and helpful, the drinks and food were amazing. We ordered appetizers and meals. Between the four of us we had the scallops, salmon, pork chop and short ribs, and all four meals were dynamite.

    Most things were excellent - the taste of the food, the service, and the casual vibe in the bar. The only complaint I had was that I ordered a medium rare fillet, and it was medium - well done. It didn’t matter much because it still tasted great.

    We had a reservation for 12:00 21 of May. We arived 10 min ahead of time. The waitress that seated my daughter, mom & sister was somewhat snippy. When my other sister found a parking spot she along with her daughter and myself took our seats at the table. After 40 min we still had no food ordered. My sister's daughter had to go to the restroom and at that exact moment the waitress came back and said I will comeback after they get back. It left the whole table frustrated because the one time not all of us had been seated, was when she came over.. More waiting, finally I walked the empty water bottles in and told the waitress and another lady we needed more water and to order. We had a reservation at 2. The service did not improve. We had a ladies day planed to spend time with my mom, she has cancer. It was supposed to be a special time. That is why I picked Salar. The activitie was fun. The restaurant was very nice. The service put a huge damper on that part of our outing. Very disappointed. When we got our food, I had to ask for checks due to fear we would not make the next reservation. The waitress took a special outing and made me regret going to Salar and not Lilys. I thought you would like to know.

    First the pros: overall it is beautifully and uniquely decorated, very fun vibe and unique menu for the area. Sangria was yummy. Cons: Not all rooms are equal. We ended up seated in a small, mostly black, room at one of three tables that felt way too close together - only about a foot from your neighbor's table. It felt like we were dinning with 6, rather than 2 - not a place to have any level of private conversation - way too cramped and felt like we were in a dungeon. The food was good, not great - especially for the price. I would definitely try them again requesting different seating, but based on only the one dish, Surf and Turf, there are many other places I'd say are better. Parking is also a pain. I still recommend with the above reservations.
