  • "This restaurant is a neighborhood wonderful place. It is close to where my group of friends live. I was surprised at the lack of a packed restaurant, which used to be the case. The food is still very good, everyone enjoyed the great selection offered and everyone said their meal was great. We will be back."

  • "Consistently tops! Neil's and Kristin's service is always tops. Our meal last Saturday was nothing short of superb - Sea Bass with a very light coconut-inflected sauce and crispy corn nuggets, and Lobster Tail. Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy a lunch or dinner here!"

  • "Honestly, if you let the month of June slip by and do not try the Fried Chicken Wrap or the Shrimp in Linguine, you will be missing out, I promise you! Wonderful dining, as always, and all chefs dropped by the table to make us feel welcome today. Not many places in Dallas that will treat you this well!"

  • "Overall the experience we very good. Only issue is we had to ask several times for the warm bread. Otherwise we had a lovely evening and will return The lobster ravioli arrived with a generous serving of lobster and the bacon scallops were prepared perfectly. "

  • "My birthday celebration on Saturday night was delightful in many ways. We were seated near the open kitchen, so we could watch the chefs working their magic. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and vivacious. The mood was celebratory. The appetizers, entrees, and Emeritus wine combined for a celebration which was perfecto."

  • "I had eaten a nice lunch at Salum, so was expecting a very good experience for dinner. The elephant garlic in our appetizer was bitter and way too oily. My fish entree was overcooked and the beans on which the fish was served was swimming in olive oil. I probably won't go back."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Had the fried shrimp sandwich again, which was delicious. Luckily, the soup of the day was a cream of broccoli, which was out of this world!!! Delicious. Full kitchen staff is so friendly, and the wait staff is always flawless. Well done, as always!"

  • "one of my neighborhood favorites; have gone many times. never a bad meal; always excellent, friendly staff. I go early in the week and early in the evenings; otherwise it can get noisy."

  • "There is nothing false at Salum. The friendly greeting, the well appointed room, the chef visiting diners; that's all part of the lead-in to a tremendous meal. The food is A+. You won't go wrong with any choice and you should trust Chef Abraham Salum with his preparations. The service is always friendly, attentive, and nearly perfect all the way through the meal. The room is serene, soft, soothing...the perfect retreat from our frenzied lives. Treat yourself to a great meal."

  • "Overall, we had a great experience at Salum. Appetizers: pate, goat cheese. Soup: chicken corn chowder. Mains: spaghetti w/shrimp, salmon, cod, beef tenderloin. All delicious. The beef was a little on the salty side, but that's our only complaint. Desserts: incredible! The fruit crisp is one of the best desserts I've ever tasted. The chocolate tart was really good, too. Mary was a wonderful server--very friendly and appropriately attentive. The tables are fairly close together in this cozy restaurant, but the noise was never a problem. It did get a little loud when the room filled up, but it didn't affect our ability to have a conversation. Salum is a great find with a wonderfully eclectic menu. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Great place for fine food, fine wine and a wonderful room!"

  • "the menu, ingredients, and plating were all pretty ordinary, but was cooked very well and tasty. berry dessert was a monster and mostly sugar, could only have 1-2 bites. all in all, pretty good but not fantastic. depends on what you like when you spend your $100+/person including wine. innovative and taking you to another world, or safe and tasty but not really noteworthy. "

  • "Wonderful lunch. I especially recommend the Fried Shrimp sandwich! Service, as always, was impeccable. Chef Sedar came to the table to check on us, which is always a nice treat! So happy with this April menu. Can't wait to return next week!"

  • "Not cheap but good food and also good service. It is a bit noisy, hard to have conversation (lively atmosphere). The mussels appetizer was very good. And so was the bread pudding. Valet is free and they are very friendly."

  • "Several girlfriends and I enjoyed lunch at Salum, everything was delicious. You can't beat the Fried Green Tomatoes, always a hit. Service was good and ambiance is calm, relaxing, clean and stylish. This was my third visit and every time is wonderful experience."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Had to sit out the entire month of March as we did not enjoy the March menu, but April is back with a bang. Very good selections, which will keep us coming back for the entire month. I must commend the service at Salum; it is impeccable. All in all, a very nice lunch today."

  • "Food was okay. Slightly overpriced.medium noise level"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We have eaten at Salum several times (perhaps 8 times in the past year) and overall give it an outstanding rating. At this meal, both the shrimp pasta and chicken and potatoes entrees were loaded with excessive amounts of garlic. This was especially surprising for the chicken, as garlic was not even mentioned as an ingredient on the menu. So, the food could have been better. We will be back."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This has been my favorite place for a few years. The staff is wonderful, and the food is consistently excellent. Great for dates or small groups. The menu changes monthly, so there is always something new to try. It doesn't matter if you have a special occasion, want to pamper yourself, or just like eating at nice places regularly. You will get some of the best all around meals in the city, hands down. I was sold when I arrived near closing more than once. I got fantastic service, a perfect drink, and did not feel rushed in the least."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The food and service were comparable to like restaurants. Lacking was floor oversight which translated to a less than an acceptable dining experience due to rude and disrespectful guests who were evidently over served and obnoxiously loud to the point a conversation with my party could not be held. Ownership did not attempt to remedy the situation with the guests. Instead offered to purchase my meal (which I did not accept) and the issue continued for the remaining guests as I closed my bill and exited the property. To be expected when dining out but still not acceptable behavior by either the inconsiderate party or ownership."

  • "Classy and elegant. I was afraid the closeness of the tables would be uncomfortably crowded, but it wasn't. Our service was good and not intrusive. We ordered the mussels. Fantastic presentation & delicious, but the broth was too salty. It was so tasty and I sipped on too of it. Then, when we got our beef tenderloin, which was set atop red chard with, I think, duck prosciutto, I was overwhelmed with the saltiness of the duck. It was all so delicious though. My husband and I split our entree and they plated it beautifully on 2 plates. Our friends ordered the Crostini with ham, goat cheese, and strawberry. It was delicious. They also ordered the scallop plate and the swordfish. It was all perfectly cooked and delicious."

  • "We have been to Salum on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with the food and attitude. Can't go wrong here!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We enjoyed Salum. We both had a caesar that was great with a Parmesan bread crisp that was great. One of my companions had the quail stuffed with dried fruit and loved it. My husband and I had the filet which was good, but a little too savory for me. I would definitely go back, but would try other things… Service was friendly, but the server didn't check back with us often enough."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We always enjoy dining a Salum. This time however the service was a bit slow. Maybe it was because we were dining late which made later!"

  • "Goat cheese elephant garlic plate and country pate: great. Texas quail with stuffed veggies was seared and cooked perfectly. Sauce added greatly to its flavor. Pan seared sole was cooked great, but I wasn't a fan of the mint pea mash underneath it. It wasn't to my taste, there was too much of it and it made the plate look messy. Bread pudding and fruit and berry crisp were tasty desserts. Our waiter was just ok. He had a table of 6 that kept him busy to our detriment. Spent to much time talking up front while we were waiting to have our table cleared and to order dessert. I finally had to ask one of the staff to please clear our table. Brought the wrong wine. Salum always serves great food and this last visit the food did not disappoint."

  • "Our service was very nice, but every dish from the fois gras appetizer to the steak and scallop dishes were bland, but very rich. Finally the dessert - berry crisp was pure sugar. Few berries to be found. We were surprised the waiter didn't ask about it since we had eaten only a few bites. But he didn't."
