This little gem in Islington is by far the best restaurent around. The food is delicious and interesting. Lots of fantastic drinks selection. I loved everything about it. Incredibly friendly staff too.

    The staff were super welcoming, professional and friendly - including the chefs who also greeted us. The food was fantastic and the wine and drink selection was brilliant. Some people have critiqued the 'small' portions on previous reviews but I only got a main and a side dish and was really satisfied. I like to eat a lot so trust me!

    This is a cosy restaurant with an open kitchen so you can see the food in various stages of preparation. A disadvantage of this if you are sitting centrally is that you are right by the cooking area and it becomes uncomfortably warm. In addition you are also right in the line of the door so when it opens you get a blast of cold air. It wasn't too much of a problem in early October but when the weather is really cold it could be. The menu is small but with an interesting choice - I don't know how often they change it but as much as I enjoyed the choices on offer, I wouldn't go back until there was something different. Starters were ok: the veloute was very salty and the chicken liver parfait was exceptionally rich - a little bit more than two small squares of toast might have been nice. Main courses were excellent - our party had the risotto, the halibut and the duck all of which were very good and the wine list is well varied with lots of options in every price range. Service is good. All in all a nice but not exceptional experience.

    Excellent quality food. Imaginative versatile menu. We wanted to try everything. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

    We wanted a small, independent restaurant with quality cooking and atmosphere for a birthday celebration and Salut! provided it all. Great tasting food - colourful and fresh. The goat's cheese salad, cod and carrot cake were especially enjoyed (not all on the same plate). We would certainly want to come back for a full menu in the evening.

    The food was good - standard modern european fare, the Angus ribs were good but the fish dishes weren't all that great. The 5 cheese platter had only 4 cheeses! Wine selection was reasonable. The staff felt a bit pushy, I was messaged earlier in the day to confirm the table. I replied to confirm with a request to hold the table in case we were delayed. I got a message back warning me that there are bookings after us and we may have to vacate the table. The restaurant was empty when we reached (ahead of time) and only one more table was occupied the entire time we were there. My partner who specifically asked for a "not so rich" dessert was suggested a "100% chocolate with hot sauce". When she left it half eaten the chef came over to ask her why, and started arguing with her when she simply said that she didn't like it. What was until then a reasonably good evening ended with a bad taste in the mouth. Overall, at £65 per head not worth the attitude we got from the chef. Islington is so full of choices that we won't even be thinking about returning!
