I have eaten at this fine restaurant numerous times with a variety of friends and family. For those who don't know it, the owner is a pretty darn good volleyball player! Not once have I or anyone I've ever eaten at this restaurant with experienced poor service, poor food quality or poor value for the dollar! Whether it's the steak or the crab cakes or an authentic Peruvian dish, Jay gets it right every time! I'm not sure about the poor reviews here but am guessing that because of the location of the restaurant - the Woodlawn area in a strip shopping center - that the reviewers were expecting TGIF type fare and prices and that they never recovered from that. The prices here are very reasonable for what you get and split plate charges are common at all fine restaurants which also indicates where some of the folks might be used to dining out. This is top quality food and service at a reasonable price and if you ever get to meet the owner, Jay, you'll be impressed with his knowledge and love for fine foods! You won't regret your visit to the Salsa Grille and you can take that to the bank!
