They make it extremely easy to book a reservation on their website. Also, it's very close to as good of a location as possible overlooking Five Points, and I second the review that complimented the fine dining experience without being overly "pretentious" and uncomfortable. I'm a fan, and surprised it's not a higher local ranking than it currently is. That... More

Shrimp and grits here I come! I absolutely love Saludas. It is a nice inviting and comfortable experience without being pretentious. The bartenders are always knowledgeable and friendly. Other fine dining experience, you feel quite comfortable having a few drinks or even dinner at the bar. The dining room is nice and a comfortable distance between table so that you... More

This restaurant is located on the second floor with a great view of Five Points in Columbia, SC. Our server was exceptional. The grilled pork chop was the largest one I've ever seen and very tender. The bacon sweet potato hash was so good it should be on some top 10 list for Southern foods. An excellent meal and experience!

This is a great space for fine dining. If the weather is good, dining on the veranda is highly recommended. Dining inside is not too noisy, it's well-lit and the food is great. The steaks are highly recommended. The Draft Beer selection is not well-balanced - for example, two IPAs, no Porters or Stouts in January. The Bottled beer list... More

I've eaten at Saluda's several times while in Columbia. My favorite menu dish is the shrimp & grits, which is spicy and flavorful and topped with a fried green tomato. I also enjoy the fish specials they offer. Nice offering of appetizers and desserts. The dark wood interior and white tablecloths present a nice dim atmosphere. Wait staff has always... More

This is one of my favorite places in Columbia. It can be expensive. Came here for 2017 Restaurant week with 4 other couples. Service was excellent and the food was fabulous.

This restaurant was the location of our office holiday party and it was gorgeous! We reserved the room upstairs and it comfortably held 30 people. I had the shrimp and grits entrée and it was delicious!! The wait staff, bartenders and other staff members were very attentive and friendly. It is directly over a Starbucks which I wasn't expecting but... More

From the other reviews, I was expecting a more palatable meal. The fried green tomatoes were average and that was the best of the items. The pork belly had the consistency of pulled barbeque, but not as much flavor as barbeque. The sauce was ketchup!! The special pasta was quite bland. At least use spiced sausage. The wait staff was... More
