    Me and my husband stumbled across this place while looking for a place to eat Saturday brunch. 130rmb for starter and main course, 150rmb for starter, main and dessert, 70rmb for glass of wine. We had a generous portion of foie gras with warm home baked baguette as a starter. For main course we both had fish, sole and cod. Everything was amazingly cooked and of generous size. Really good ambience, staff and food. My husband lived in France for about a year working projects around the country and says the food was equal to French bistro standard. We are pleasantly surprised and will come back for dinner later on. Can so far recommend if for lunch.

    We went to Saleya with couple of friends, hoping to have a relaxing dinner.

    First thing you notice is the poor, old-fashioned décor of the place: uncomfortable tables, red squared tablecloths and annoying background music on auto repeat.

    The food is nothing special and the price/quality ratio is not satisfying. We had three main courses and a bottle of middle-range wine for a total of about 1800rmb. The dishes were so bland and ordinary that I can’t even remember what we ordered.

    The service is also bad (but after two years spent in Shanghai I’m starting to get used to that). For this price you expect your waiter AT LEAST to pour the wine in your glass – but that won’t happen in Saleya. We even had the opportunity to have a quick small talk with the manager. He showed himself cheerful and polite asking how we find the food and if everything was all right.

    When the check arrived, however, we tried to make a simple recommendation that waiters should warn customers that they will be charged for extra sides for the shared dishes. The manager was obviously very annoyed and replied in an arrogant and disrespectful manner, that they only serve home-made sides. Probably he misunderstood us, thinking that we’re saying this hoping to have a check deduction, but even thought that’s not the way to treat your customers.
    At least we left with the reconciliation that the fries we ate for 80rmb were “home-made”.

    In conclusion Saleya is just another snobbish, overpriced French restaurant with big pretentious but little value.
    Hopefully, for this price you can find plenty other restaurants in Shanghai where you’ll enjoy tasty dishes, warmer welcoming and better treatment.
    Never going back again

    I used to go to Saleya very frequently with my friends , about 2-3 years ago. The food went downhill and I didn't went back again until today. After having heard good feedbacks , I was curious and decided to gave them a chance to make it right. They renewed the place, which looks better, except that now , tables are so close to each other. I understand they want to optimize their small indoor space - but for a customer , it's unpleasant. Also , they don’t have the standard menu they had before (it was 2 or 3 courses at about 260-350 RMB). The only option is a 5 course menu at 388 RMB (you’d better be hungry… I didn’t spot any customer picking this choice that night). Or a la carte. That’s what we toke. One starter (foie gras): fine. One main (beef filet): I asked well done but this piece of beef was though as old boots. Well done isn't supposed to taste like old boots. Meat was seating lonely in a big white dish. No sauce , no veggies, nothing. Just the meat , and a bit of the cooking juice. Sad. Bland. Forgettable. They used to have a killer pepper sauce - where did it go? The “home made fries” were tasteless. We paid a bit less than 900 RMB. For one starter, two mains, two desserts and a carafe of average wine. That’s an armed robbery. The Saleya we used to love is definetely gone away for ever. We’ll never be back.

    My expectations of any new restaurant in Shanghai have started to slide dangerously low so I wasn't holding out much hope here, especially based on previous comments. I am happy to say we received a 5* experience over the weekend. The French waiters (not commonly known for their endearing qualities) were absolutely fantastic. Ok I'm going to say it...they even had a sense of humor. We had ordered off-menu for a friend's birthday and got the most amazing beef en croute for our group. The meat was unbelievable juicy and perfectly cooked. The beef tartare and other starters were equally good. You can taste the quality of the ingredients and they did not scrimp on portions either. We asked for wine recommendations and the guy brought us a great Chablis which wasn't the most expensive on the list. I highly recommend this place for it's great terrace (while the weather is still warm), service and really great French food. Would be a good one to take parents to or anyone in the mood for a top draw Gallic feast.

    First when you arrive the feeling is quite good as they have a nice outdoor space with a retro style that is pleasant. It's really nice especially with nice weather. Unfortunately for me the positive aspect stops here. I was indeed very disappointed with the food. Too salted, very small portions (that's ok if it's delicious), and the price is so out balanced with the quality.

    The service was ok as it was not many people, but I was really astonished when the waitress told us we could not have the piece of beef my friend wanted well cooked because she said and i quote " Foreigners don't like it well cooked but rare'. WTF??.First of all my friend was not a foreigner(and what the hell this has to do with anything anyway)and I mean we are the clients,so if we want our meat even completely burned, well they should cook it the way we want!. That was ridiculous!!!.

    Anyway I live in this restaurant area and for my personal point of view there is plenty of others restaurants near by much better and cheaper. I know that in most "foreign" cool/fancy restaurants the prices are a bit higher than what it should be, but so far I was always pleased with everything else. With Le Saleya,I clearly had the feeling to have been ripped off, and I will definitely not go there again.

    Last night I brought my girlfriend to Le Saleya for our 1st valentine dinner together. You would think with a set menu of only two options, the restaurant should handle their orders with ease. Instead, we sat there for hours waiting for our entrees. Two parties next to us have arrived and finished before we even had our main course. At some point, I felt like i was paying for a 700rmb bread dinner. When the second party seated next to us finished their dinner and was offered a second entree and dessert, I couldn't help but to chime in with the french waiter.."it's possible that you're giving them seconds, while you missed another table's meal entirely" The nonchalant waiter had no respond for me.

    The owner/manager came to chat with us on a few occasions throughout the night, cracking jokes and all. I thought he was nice at first and would remedy the situation for us quickly, but I was wrong. We would wait every time after he left, more time would go by and our table still only had bread and wine. I could not help but feel he seemed more interested in being the center of attention than serving his patrons. Eventually after an hour, I talked to a local Chinese waiter and at least he managed to show us the menu again and had us reordered our food, ha.

    Food wise, the starter, the beef carpaccio is really quite tasty. It was a good dish. However, the main course, champagne source salmon was a disappointment. It was bland and perhaps frozen and reheated just before(which makes is more confounding as to why our food took so long to come). Anyway, both my girlfriend and I were not hungry anymore by that point. By the time we asked for the bill, the owner came running off to get it. Well, it took another 10min and a second try with another waiter.

    All in all, the night was saved by the good company of my girlfriend, nice neighbors, as we all got a kick out of the disorganization, and a tasty carpaccio and bread dip (give credit where it's due). The rest left a lot to be desired.
