We enjoyed our first visit to Sal y Pimienta very much. We sat outside on the small patio and found it easy to converse even right next to the street. We were delighted with our entrees - rack of lamb and seafood skewer. The salad was very good as well. The empanadas were good, but not the best I've had. And the dessert - panqueques de dulce de leche - was overly sweet for our palates. Good waiter and nice ambiance.

Definitely a fun new experience. Food is unusual and tasty. The service is fine. Our only shared comment was that it was so loud it was hard to hear sitting next to each other and at one point it actually was painful. However that may have been the people around us and we will go again.

Been a couple of times for lunch but this last trip was for anniversary dinner and it was fantastic. Didn't know they had such a large assortment of meats! Tomahawk steak, you are on my radar for our next outing! Bonus, get a Groupon for dinner (not good on Sat though) or for the Sunday brunch. Parking at CityCentre that's close by can be a bit of a challenge but the walk is well worth it. Very nice and very quite the Sat we were there. Cant stand all that noise and bustle at most places. Could actually have a nice conversation. Will definitely go back.

What a fantastic place. Blas , the manager , and his staff really know how to welcome you and treat their customers. The food was flat out amazing. Never been to a place that continues to check on you and make sure you are happy with the food and everything. Service and food - exceptional. Period. Both of these reasons are why I keep on continuing to come back again and again. Hands down the best restaurant in Houston.

It's so expensive that I believe there should be better quality food and more food options. Some of the food seemed as if it had been out for a while now, it should at least be fresh.

I've loved this restaurant in the past, but this time I felt like the waiter was trying to sell us on a lot of extras. We were shocked when we got the bill.

As a Latin, I was excited to visit this South American restaurant. The menu was appealing but the food was to simply for the price. I ordered meat because Uruguayan are famous for meat. I was a bit disappointed as the meat was over cooked and served with some simple rice.
I'd say that the ingredients were good but need some more laborious work and sophistication.
Good luck!

Sal y Pimienta has some of the most unique and tasty cuts of meat available. The preparation and serving are perfect. This is not the place for you if you're not a meat lover. An authentic Argentinian style Steakhouse with a great list of reasonably priced wines to accompany the meal.
