    It was our 44th anniversary. I got the Caesar salad and a filet minon. Both were excellent. My husband got shrimp ceviche and pork belly. Both were excellent. Oh, and the fried green tomatoes were the best we have ever eaten!

    It was raining hard so I was late for reservation but I called ahead and let them know that I would be late. Got seated right away when I arrived. The main dish - pork chop was a little salty. Brussels sprouts didn’t fare well with the dish - my personal preference - perhaps I am not a fan of Brussels sprouts.

    Lovely upstairs location in a renovated brick building. Large windows and open space. Highly recommend the crab cake as an appetizer and scallops as an entree. Foodie experience & everything was prepared to perfection. Wide selection of wine and craft cocktails. Service was excellent too. Ideal place for a date night or celebration.

    I heard good things about Saluda´s so I surprised my wife on our 16th anniversary. So glad we went there! I called in advance to confirm the reservation made on OpenTable early in the week. Told the hostess about our celebration and she couldn't have been more accommodating! Waited at the bar and ordered the crabcakes. By the time we were expecting them, we moved to our table. Everything was incredible! Wife had the scallops with the arugula salad with strawberries. I had the filet mignon and the wedge salad. Everything was prepared to perfection!!!! The staff were incredibly consistent. Service was fantastic. We will definitely be back long before our next anniversary.
