We loved it but for the second time in two months, there wasnt any horchata for the cocktail I wanted to try. Other than that, it was excellent, as always…

Our server Bentley was a joy and fun to speak with. He was. Foodie and expertly directed us according to our tastes. It’s always a marvel to eat food with a deep Mexican history here and prepared with age old techniques and original spices

The Suadero tacos were very disappointing, the meat didn’t have any flavor which is the most important part of the taco! Service was lovely tho!

17th Anniversary dinner with my wife. We made a reservation for 7:15pm but our table was ready by 7:05pm. However we were seated outside and swarms of flies ruined the ambiance for us. We had a fantastic meal while fanning away countless pests including bees. The cocktails were deliciously refreshing; they complimented our Croquetas appetizer. We also had the Sopa de Elote, very divinely granished with harmonious flavors. As our main courses, I had the Cochinita Pibil and my wife the Cerdo with our guarnicion of Calabacitas.. Both fuertes were absolutely complex and symphonic with the multiple layers of flavor. The mini zucchini side was rich and fresh. We had the Mexican corn whiskeys flight as desserts. The black and white corn were our favorites. Overall a great experience, our first outing since before the pandemic shutdown.

Service started amazing, but once our food arrived we were kinda forgotten about. I’ve been to Salome before, I was hoping to have a similar experience since it is such a pretty restaurant with good ambiance, unfortunately it differed a lot from my first time. The amount of FLIES that were swarming us was unbearable, as soon as we finished our food we asked for the check. Wish we could’ve stayed to enjoy a few more drinks. Our food was delicious, as well as our drinks, that and the initial welcoming/service saved the night.

The food here is amazing! You definitely have to make a reservation because it gets pretty busy. The staff was super friendly and they are super knowledgeable about their menu! They knew exactly what to recommend for a first-time visitor. I will definitely be going again on a live music night to experience a different environment.

Our second time there, and the food is still as great as the first time. The service too was great. The downside this time was that we picked patio seating and the whole patio area was swarmed with a ton of flies. My wife and i had to ask to change our glasses twice because of flies getting into our wine constantly! It actually felt like there was a dumpster right beside us. We were so annoyed with the flies that we skipped desert and went somewhere else to eat. They need to find a way to rectify this to make it enjoyable at their patio which was beautifully arranged.
