Love this spot! My wife and I came here some year's ago and really enjoyed the food. It was was noisy that night, because of the St. Patrick's day festivities. But the food was incredible then and incredible now!
The experience was good as always but I left a note on OpenTable that it was my birthday and throughout the whole dinner my server never made 1 comment about it and I felt like that was poor service.
Fantastic shrimp and grits! Love the location downtown too
I have had great meals here and this visit I tried the ranch steak and fried buffalo oysters. Neither was really my favorite choice. I thought the ranch steak would be more tender. Other people in the party loved the shrimp and grits and swordfish. Still a great spot.
Our server was excellent! She was very knowledgeable and helpful. Just a wonderful experience as always.
Took 2 hours to get our food, the manager did not apologize for the wait, it was super expensive, and my food was raw and I got my steak brought up and it came back charred.
My first experience was outstanding in every way. I will definitely be back. Very warm and inviting experience.
My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at Saluda's. We had a wonderful dinning experience. The food was very delicious and our waitstaff was great. We were able to set and have a nice conversation with out any disturbance with a room full of others. That was nice. Free Free valet parking was a treat too. Go to Saluda's. You will enjoy it.....
Newly weds on our 6-month anniversary! Just wanted something a little fancy to celebrate.
Came in to Saluda’s and they surprised us with two glasses of champagne. Ordered an appetizer of Seared Ahi Tuna. Came out in about 3.5 mins and was amazing!
Ordered entree right after and came out just as fast.
The food was delicious!
Highly recommend the cream brûlée! We would definitely go back!
Staff was amazing and attentive but also left you alone to eat. Never had an empty glass of water as all the staff hep each other out.
5 out of 5 stars. Will be back!
Food was good and service excellent, BUT it is a very noisy place. If you have hearing difficulties I do not recommend it.
Some of the best fried green tomatoes I’ve ever eaten!!
The whole experience was wonderful will be going back.
Saluda's is a wonderful restaurant in the Five Points area of Columbia. However, it is not handicap accessible and the only public entrance is a long, steep stairway. I watched as a man brought a wheelchair up to the top of the stairs and then went back down to assist a woman trying to come up the stairs. She got right to the top and they then decided to leave. The building is designated as historic and apparently can't/won't be modified.
Our waitress said she was having an "off" night. Hope that was the case. I ordered the blackened salmon which was a bit too charred on the outside and a little under cooked on the inside. Perhaps the kitchen was having an "off" night also.
Wonderful experience! Erin was our server and she did an outstanding job. Highly recommended!!
Saluda's is always wonderful......my "go to" restaurant for any occasion.
All of our dishes were outstanding. Service very good. Well done !
Great service in a romantic atmosphere outside
Delicious seafood and spirits menu.
Specialty requests for dietary restrictions was easily honored. Very special server, courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive.
Great food. Fantastic service! Will definitely recommend this restaurant.
Our waiter was incredible. The food never disappoints. The patio seating was great. Our favorite place in Columbia
Fifty year wedding anniversary. Server Olivia was outstanding. Hearing that we were celebrating 50 years of marriage, Olivia brought us two flutes of champagne - on the house. She was helpful with her suggestions for appetizers,entrees, and desserts. She was attentive to
a perfect degree.
The food was delicious - vegetables fresh and well prepared, and steaks perfectly cooked and tender. All the food was well seasoned. The chocolate cake was intensely chocolate, moist, and generous.
My bride and I look forward to another opportunity to dine at one of our favorite restaurants on the Columbia area.
We were visiting Columbia and decided to try Saluda based on reviews. What a lovely experience! It was drizzly so we didn’t sit outside but our window table gave us a great view. Our server was charming and knowledgeable. The cucumber gazpacho was so refreshing. My husband’s pork chop was perfect, and my scallops with summer vegetables was delicious. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Columbia.
Great time. Courteous staff
Very elegant place to dine perfect setting for our anniversary dinner.
The service was wonderful and the shrimp and grits were amazing!!!
My husband and I went here for the first time and it was great. We are outside, even though it was hot outside the place had a nice breeze. My husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the filet mignon. Both dishes were excellent! Would come back! Server was fun and great too.
Fried deviled eggs a little weird, everything else perfect
Im a white male and I date a black woman, neither of us drink, and she is a light eater. From the moment we sat down it felt awkward. I’m not sure if it was because we didn’t spend a fortune at a “nicer” restaurant (mind you I have been to MUCH fancier dining establishments), or if it’s because we are an interracial couple, but I would never go back to that place.
Our waiter was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend Saluda’s.
Our server Victoria was fantastic! Took my mother here for her 85th birthday and she and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend Saluda's for special occasions, casual dining or just meeting friends for a drink.
Four of us enjoyed an absolutely delicious dinner here over the weekend before heading to the Cirque show. My friend enjoyed the blood orange martini to start which she loved! We shared the oysters, fried green tomatoes & salad for our starters. My friend & I tried the salmon special for dinner which was over coconut jasmine rice ~ cooked & seasoned perfectly! Our husbands had the 10 oz filet and shrimp & grits which were also delicious. We ended the evening by splitting the creme brûlée and strawberry mousse! Service was friendly & attentive! What more could you ask for!
Had an absolute perfect night with the girl of my dreams. Great atmosphere and wonderful food.
This was our Anniversary and we had a lovely meal and the atmosphere was the best and there were two specials a steak and a seafood option they were both great. Just one issue there seems to be no elevator and we had to climb stairs that we didn’t know about before hand
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner tonight for my mother’s birthday. The food was absolutely delicious, the noise level... what noise? It was just a smooth night with wonderful service from our waitress Chris and the chef definitely delivered. Of course we will be back.
I hadn't been back for a while and the meal was exceptionally good!!
We celebrated our anniversary at Saluda's on July 3, 2019. The service was excellent as our waitress was attentive and helpful with my wife's food sensitivities. The ambiance was pleasant as the room is open, tastefully decorated, and the windows in the front illuminate the entire area. The presentation of our entrees was well done. The food was excellent and prepared to our wishes. A very enjoyable experience to celebrate our milestone.
Food was fantastic
