    Calm / clean / distanced / safe environment. Superb service and delicious food. Exactly as I remembered it: Salut! Is a central London quality restaurant in a local neighbourhood. Highly recommend and very pleased they are surviving the current times.

    Another great meal at Salut! our first since lockdown. If anything, the food seemed even better than before. Not a cheap meal but excellent quality for the price point.

    Salut! was beyond amazing! The food was really good, the service was probably one of the best you could experience. I cannot recommend it enough, it is a really nice place to go!

    Continues to be very good at all levels...everyone I take likes Salut.. I expected social distancing to be more obvious though

    This was our first time at Salut after reading great things about the restaurant. To start with, the ambiance and decor are lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. We ordered two starters, Crab with green apple and Charred turnip with Almond puree. Both sounded and looked amazing but were really disappointing taste-wise. There were no layered / interesting or unexpected flavours. The main course of Parsley Crusted Wild Cod was really good. The cod was perfectly cooked and cockles were lovely, although the courgette slightly under cooked. The Roasted Cauliflower with Tofu Sauce didn't really cut it and felt like a token vegetarian dish on the menu. The Cheesecake Mousse, and cheese board were delicious and the Primitivo wine very good too. For the price, £130 for 2 (3 courses and a bottle wine) you'd want everything to be delicious, which it wasn't so we won't be going back.

    Great food, friendly service, nice atmosphere and good wine. All you need from a restaurant. This was our 5th visit and won’t be our last.

    Amazing food, friendly staff and the small sized venue with the open kitchen creates great atmosphere

    The atmosphere was great. Service was great. Food was good but not great. I might have had high expectations... the ribeye was just a regular small steak w 3 potato’s and one pan fried onion. I was expecting something more as it felt very standard? Dessert was three piles of vanilla ice cream, chocolate pudding and melted quite chocolate. It was good but it wasn’t special or memorable and is wasn’t really worth the prices. I’ve been at Salut twice before having risotto, chicken and ribeye a year ago and it was way more unique and value for its price.
