Salú Bistro and Bar is a contemporary European restaurant. Here, guests will find culinary influences from all over Europe. That extends to the interior of the restaurant as well, which takes several decorating cues from places like Italy, France, Spain and Greece. The most striking feature of the dining room is the recessed ceilings with glowing blue lights. These illuminate the dining area with a soft glow, and it looks as if the diners are looking up at the bottom of a pond.

Salú's offers both brunch and dinner. Some of the brunch specialties include French Toast sliders, huevos ranchers and a classic steak and eggs combination. The dinner menu is divided into a few different sections that includes flatbreads, entrées and a special section devoted just to mussels. Mussels are the signature item at Salú and guests can get them with everything from sriracha mayo and garlic butter to a white wine garlic butter sauce.

Really nice brunch choices and we were lucky enough to be able to get an outside table (noise level is off the charts inside)...really nice do it yourself Bloody Mary station for the bottomless drinks from 11-300. Great wait staff and food was very good and nice big portions

Our waiter was so warm and welcoming. He was very attentive as well as accommodating. He even loved how I surprised my friend with a birthday cake and celebrating her home visit since my friend has moved away. Cheers to him, (sorry I can't remember the gentleman's name but he is short with ginger beard!) Very sweet. ; )

Good variety of foods to select from...wonderful mussels and frites, flatbread pizzas, salmon and chicken. Good service. A little too noisy for conversation, but a fun, vibrant scene. Lively and fun! Our server was very attentive.

I've been wanting to try Salu since I heard about the bottomless mimosas for brunch. The deal can't be beat. While I was hoping some of the tapas would be on the brunch menu, I was still very pleased with the traditional eggs Benedict. Our party of six all enjoyed the food. It was extremely loud, but we had great service and a wonderful meal.

Service an atmosphere were great. I, personally was not impressed by the menu.

Great overall. The brunch menu was a bit limited compared to the full tapas menu. However everything was delicious and it was the kind of place you could linger over brunch and mimosas with friends for awhile! Great vibe.
