Salon is a relaxed and informal restaurant that specialises in an ever-changing seasonal Set Menu, with all the finesse and attention to detail of fine dining, but without any of the fuss.

Our weekend brunches (Saturday & Sunday daytime) are legendary, with props in The Guardian, Time Out and Harpers Bazaar to name just a few!

We have a bar space downstairs where we serve cocktails, natural wines, beers and snacks.

Upstairs in our Dining Room we offer a 4-course Set Menu and a 7-course Extended Menu, please specify on your booking if you would like the Extended Menu.

We attend Salon several times a year and are always so impressed with the quality of the food. We love that the menu is seasonal and changes and that it is also incredible reasonably priced.

A limited range of well considered and often ambitious dishes in an intimate hideaway. Well worth a try if you're in the area.

Seriously good cooking. Imaginative and thoughtful combinations. The Montepulciano with the venison (with the croquettes are seriously yummy) is a good fit.We all had the lunch time menu and look forward to an evening feast. Particular thanks to the manageress who was extremely personable and the service overall which was just the right blend of friendliness combined with more than a passing knowledge of the food and especially the somewhat unusual wine list.

I would recommend them for their tapas menu and sitting downstairs for drinks but not the set menu upstairs.

Food worth every penny- go for the 7 course tasting menu. Drinks quite expensive- watch out.

A treat for my step-dads 70th birthday, couldn't have asked for more! An ex-chef with high standards, even he was gushing about the quality of the food. Matt made them both feel so welcome and special and I can't thank you enough for that. They said its an experience they'll never forget.

What a lovely restaurant! GREAT food and amazing service. Knowledgeable and very friendly. I reckon there's a Michelin star arriving soon. The Confit Potatoes with Anchovy aioli is a MUST. Top of my list now.

Food and service fantastic. They kindly accommodate the dietary requirements of my friend and the late arrival of my brother. The restaurant is small so ask for a table at the back of the room to avoid being on the way to the bathroom.

Fun, fast, confident service. Spectacular food and great wine. Only downside, was the waiter speaking to quickly when explaining the dishes! Otherwise, faultless.

I think the food is great but the service downstairs is really bad. They made us feel unwelcome and were unhelpful when telling us what they had run out of. The pasta we ordered was tiny - it was like they had spread two serves across four bowls for us. About 4 mouthfuls (I had to get food after dinner from elsewhere). I do think it is strange to run out of tagliatelle on pasta night but there you go. I’ve been upstairs before and it was great but this experience downstairs wasn’t.

Top quality food from the tiny kitchen at Salon. Sweetcorn and duck heart a particular highlight, the Nduja croquettes a close second - or maybe the crab and cucumber. Whichever way round, it was really enjoyable - made even more enjoyable by some wonderful staff who made my little boy feel super welcome and part of the experience. A little too part as he tried to scoff my crab. No chance mate. Will be back soon without the child to make the most of the wine list next time!

The food was amazing! So well presented and great quality food. We had the set menu on Sunday which was perfect if you can't decide what to have because everything sounds delicious!

Salon is one of those restaurants that surprises. In the middle of Brixton market which has many places to eat but this one stands out as a special place. Not cheap for the extended tasting menu (i.e. expensive for Brixton but cheap for anywhere else in London). But it is well worth it and do choose the wines to match - lots of interest and they really do pair. Our favourite dish was the beans.

Salon is v v special indeed. We don't know the neighborhood so it was a bit difficult to find but well worth seeking out. The adjoining wine shop is top notch as well.

The restaurant is beautiful and feels busy and exciting. Immediately when you walk in it feels special.

I visited with my partner as we had heard very good things. As we entered we were excited and were immediately wowed by the service and introduction to the menu/restaurant. The food was clever, fresh and delicious. Starting with a tomato and basil gazpacho followed by a crab and peach dish. I was excited to see what was next. I hadn’t spent much time looking at the menu as it was set and I had no dietary requirements.

Generally the food was great, ideally I would have appreciated a little more care from the waitress explaining the food as it wasn’t busy and she seemed very quick to disappear when putting down the food. I had to keep asking her to repeat what she had said before leaving and she would rush and tail off as if not quite sure about the ingredients.

The main came and me and my partner had opted for one meat, one veggie to try the whole menu. Sadly the meat dish had been very over cooked. This hadn’t been such a problem until the bill came and I noticed despite it being a ‘set menu @£39’ the meat option was £6 more. When I asked the waitress said ‘oh yes we get that a lot, it probably should’ve been more clear’. Considering there is two options for anyone dining I felt this could have easily been highlighted when explaining the menu. The service at this point had become pretty poor. It Was a shame as it had started so well. In the defence of the staff it was very hot and we were struggling just sitting down.

On the whole I felt a little disappointed when we left. Partly because the staff had gone from welcoming to really not that fussed/rude. I would suggest this place to a friend who wanted to impress someone with the appearance of the place but generally it won’t be going down on my list of special places, I wouldn’t return.

Overall it was £120 for two people with a bottle of wine to share. Wine wasn’t great at all @£25

My second visit. We opted for the tasting menu with matching wines. Overall £85 each but I feel it’s a great experience. Not something I would do everyday but still a good experience. Wines matched very well with the food.

We had a brilliant night at Salon, eating our way through the extended tasting menu with wine pairing. It’s a lovely room with friendly and knowledgable staff, and we loved the food. And the wine...
