Food was average, service was terrible. I will not return.
We made a reservation and the restaurant was ready for us even when we arrived 10 minutes early. We were seated at a table that was squished between other tables. My husband was touching the person behind him the entire time. There was no lighting by our table so it was dark. The server forgot to bring our drinks and served our appetizer and entree at the same time. There was not enough room on the small table for that food. The food was good, but I expected something great for the price. Overall you get a better value at Olive Garden and almost as good food.
Great time! Enjoyed the staff recommendations and can’t wait to go back. I the special Manhattan that the barrel age!
Service was not the greatest. We had to flag down our server multiple times to get her to come back to our table.
Kona is an amazing waiter! He is very knowledgeable about celiac disease and what changes can be made to the menu. He was super nice and engaged in fun conversation. We will definitely put this restaurant on our date night rotation!
I celebrated my 21st birthday here with some friends and what I really appreciated the knowledge of the bartender and his concerns for my tastes. He was aware that it was my birthday and recommended excellent drinks for me and informed me of the drinks I might not like. I sat at the bar during happy hour and then transitioned to my reserved table; my server was very nice! They made my birthday special and offered me either a free dessert or a free birthday shot. I ordered a hummus platter which was excellent, and I got a bruschetta board which filled me up and was very good!
Bruschettas are tasty, bread could be thicker. Mac & cheese bites are skippable. Well crafted cocktails. Personable and professional server.
Lots of outdoor seating. Good wine specials. Foodies will enjoy
Not the best. Website sold a completely different atmosphere
Great food, and large portions.
I found this restaurant last year when I was looking for a place to go prior to Phoenix Rising game. I thought the food, drinks, ambience and most importantly the staff were fantastic. Then when my son’s friend moved into ASU last summer I told his family about. Had a big family, friend dinner on move in day and everyone agreed the food was the best. Tasty, great selection and a wonderful quality of food. Just went back this weekend. Had the Mediterranean shrimp tacos, Salut fries and hummus nachos. All were excellent. Asked for a glass of Pinot Grigio and the server kindly brought over both to taste so I could choose. I didn’t even ask her to. So thoughtful. My husband had a cucumber mule which he said was perfect for a hot Arizona evening (in April). Honestly the only place I would eat in Tempe and I look forward to being there before all Phoenix Rising games.
I typically don’t provide feedback unless it’s positive. However, the service at this location was so dismal, I feel it needs to be addressed. There were a host of issues, including waiting 30 minutes for water and another 40 minutes for a cocktail (it did take a while to figure out what we wanted to drink- they say they are a “wine establishment, but they were out of their two “main” wines. And the wine list was pretty small.) It wasn’t very busy and yet, my table waited over an hour for appetizers. When the entrées finally did appear, they came out at three different times. There was about 15 minute wait between the first entrée arriving and the last arriving. It meant that most of us ate cold dinners. The food was just fine. I realize this may have just been a fluke night. But based on the horrible service, we won’t be returning.
Love the patio. The service was fantastic. Food was very tasty. Originally they had placed our reservation for 7 on a high top. Due to a back issue, I asked for a low table. It wasn't a busy evening so there were tables to accomodate us and they quickly moved us. Very happy!
Nice atmosphere on the patio and outstanding service by Angel. The food was creative and healthy options were available. I had the grilled cheese with truffle fries and it was very good. I was happy to be able to get a reservation for six people on a Saturday night and everybody enjoyed it and the fact that we could have a conversation without shouting.
Our waiter Dillin was amazing!!
Food exceeded all expectations, staff was attentive and enthusiastic without being annoying. Atmosphere was relaxed. Table top s'mores were fun and delicious!
I would give it another chance. Okay, what does that mean? We had a new server; he wasn't very good. Tried hard. A for effort but he was still learning. It was a Saturday evening, happy hour, time; probably wasn't the wisest decision to leave him on his own as the place got busy. The food was tasty for what it was. Said it was "Mediterranean," only sort of...having a couple of menu items and hummus on the menu does not really make it so. It was more of a gastro-bar (?) bar food and a few entrees, with good cocktails, beer and wine at reasonable prices, with special pricing during happy hour.
We went there for a quick lunch in the middle of the afternoon. The server was super fun and friendly, food more than honest but I guess ambiance would have been better at happy hour or in the evening.
Party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their food. Service was lacking though.
Drinks were delivered to all except one. After 15 minutes had to ask for the remaining drink. Ordered appetizer and dinner salad - was not delivered until meal so appetizer was returned. Server indicated she thought we wanted them with the meal - this option was not expressed by us and server didn't ask when we ordered to make this the case. Food enjoyable just service issues.
Enjoyable atmosphere. Inside seating was pretty but a bit tight. Outside patio accommodated parties of different sizes and was comfortable with heaters for cooler nights and shade for hotter temperatures. Even though very close to ASU campus it felt more of a wine bar then a college hangout. Food was good and service friendly. Generous happy hour every day until 6:30pm. Would recommend to friends and will be back.
Great place to eat before a show would recommendd
Great Happy Hour and Will is best bartender there! Everything he suggested tasted AWSOME! Also 1/2 price wines on HH & certain days of the wk!
Can’t wait to go back!
My boyfriend and I came here for New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day and each experience was wonderful. I love Salut for the ambiance, friendly service, and inventive food. The lavender lemon fizz and hummus nachos are to die for. It is nice to know that I can always count on this place for an enjoyable, quiet evening even on busy holidays!
I took my girlfriend here for Valentines day. Overall I had a great time, I reserved my seats 4 hours in advance and had no trouble with being seated. The service was okay, we were ignored by staff for 20 minutes and had to ask to be waited on. My only complaint. The food was great and the bartender was cool and drinks were amazing.
1st time there and we enjoyed our self. Food was great, love scratch kitchens, great menu and service was good. Overall good experience and definitely going back.
I absolutely love this restaurant, the staff is awesome, the food is to die for, the atmosphere is cozy and friendly!
The environment was good for a casual get together. The food was good and priced reasonably. We only ordered appetizers though and it took longer than ordering a bunch of entrees. I don't know why that was but that would be the worst part of the decent meal.
Slow service but the food was amazing
Very good food at a fair price.
My Review is going out to the Open Table communications and Salut reservations administration. We booked a table at 3pm online the evening prior but when we arrived, we were advised that they closed at 2pm and someone said they had called to advise, but I never received a phone call or email notifying us of the closure. I did confirm it was the correct phone number with the gentleman. Fortunately, Cafe Boa WAS open and we gladly went to dine there for my friend's birthday prior to a theater production.
Needless to say, the review above does NOT reflect a dining experience, but a reservations and operating hours issue.
After having to choose between an indoor or outdoor seating when we made the reservation (we choose outdoor), there was some confusion about granting us an outdoor seat when we arrived. It took about 10 minutes to resolve this problem. We also tried two different wines from the wine list, and both were disappointing.
Will definitely give it another chance. My eggs benedict was cold and the eggs were soft boiled, not poached. Others in our party had cold food as well. There was an 80 person brunch on the patio which I'm sure messed up the kitchen's service. Our server was awesome.
Food was great. The only thing that could improve is the time it took to actually get the food. But I guess waiting for great food is not that big of a deal.
Overall: Poor quality of food. Wouldn’t return even if prices were lower.
Appetizers: Truffle Fries... served luke warm
Beer: cool I guess - not cold
Macaroni And Cheese Balls... ok
Sun Devil Burger... small, bland on a dry large bun.
Strawberry Salad- excellent
Pistachio salmon- smelled fishy, tasted fine, looked like my kid tried to make fancy with “drizzle” all over plate
The lemon orzo was inedible due to flavor. Nobody liked it at the table....
Service was good.
The mushroom bruschetta is incredible. Cool atmosphere, nice outdoor dining.
Food was delicious, great service and great spot for dinner prior to luminaries or zoo lights. Thank you!
Staff was great, owner came by to visit, wine list could use some continental flavor but still very good...tapas were wonderful.
The most striking thing is that the staff seemed to love the place as well.
Server was not very knowledgeable about the food. Had to keep pushing him to ask the chef questions because of food allergies. Food tasted good, but the wait was too long for the amount of people at the restaurant, aka not very many.
