Ambiance of a decent local bar that provides good, well sourced/cooked food. Excellent ingredients for both plates were marred by cold plate and at best, lukewarm food, Waitress was advised but didn't care or offer to re-heat or replace. A really good NY strip steak ordered medium came out medium well which spoiled, rather than ruined a fabulous piece of... More

We stopped in to what we thought was a nice establishment and had dinner. It was a very busy Saturday night. Got seated at the bar and we decided to eat there instead of waiting for a table which was fine. Had a nice cocktail and received our food. My steak was suppose to be medium but had no color...

Been there twice, Great burgers and really like their homemade Mayo. Mostly generated toward the hippy / yuppie crowd.

We had an ok lunch here. The main problem was that although I ordered a grilled cheese BLT and my husband ordered a sandwich and specifically asked to add cheese, neither sandwich came with cheese. The waitress just shook her head with a small smile and said, "Oh Dennis." Um? If Dennis can't make the food that's ordered, maybe it's... More

Our group of six enjoyed an outstanding dinner at Shallots. Robert was our server and attended to our every need. We had an excellent French Viognier which complemented Don's seafood specials very well. With the demise of Laughing Ladies, Shallots is now the finest reataurant in Salida!

I wanted to find a place that was romantic for a Saturday night dinner during a weekend in Salida. We chose this place because it had gotten fairly good reviews. Overall, I liked the atmosphere (exposed brick walls, nice linen tablecloths, nice lighting). Also, our waitress was attentive and entertaining. She made the experience a memorable one. However, I was... More

Everything was perfect. The place was nearly empty but the other places we looked at were either too full, too noisy or closed so we took a chance. It was great for a romantic evening, soft music, delicious food perfectly prepared and presented. the waiter was very attentive and made good suggestions and brought us beer samples to find the...
