Salum’s is a sophisticated neighborhood gym for consistently delightful dining experience. From Jeans to Tuxedo you will always feel welcome and at home. From steaks to seafood and pasta you will always find an entree that appeals to everyone at the table.

Always a consistently wonderful experience! Enjoy!

A birthday celebration brought us to Salum. I love this place. Relatively small dining room. Relatively small menu (seasonal) make this place the gem that it is. Located in a small strip mall on the SE corner of Cole and Fitzhugh, surrounded by other restaurants. Menu had a couple of chicken items, lobster, two beef, one rack of lamb (delicious), one fish, one shellfish and one pasta, if my memory is correct. Service is stop on. Attentive, yet, not rushing us. Wine list has many good choices, several by the glass. Did I mention I love this place?

I don’t know about making it at least 50 characters.....
My friend and I selected Salum, to celebrate her birthday, because we knew what to expect ...... no need to always try new places for our dining.
The wonderful expectations began when we arrived for our reservation......food, wine, service, atmosphere all an “A”. Thank you all so much.

As visitors to Dallas every 3 to 6 months from out-of-state, we try to visit (or revisit) highly rated restaurants for dinner each time. We probably dined at Salum 8 - 10 years ago and were very impressed; but it took meeting some other non-Dallasite friends for the weekend plus seeing it appear on Open Table's "Top 100 in the USA in 2018" list to persuade us to return. We should have done so much sooner. The service was outstanding.; our waiter was helpful in making both food and wine recommendations. Everything was delicious: the tomato-basil bisque, the house salad, the redfish, scallops and lobster all got rave reviews from our guests and ourselves. The crowning glories were the bread pudding -- "best ever" (per my wife) -- and the brownie as dessert choices. The decor is classy without being stuffy, and the noise level only moderate. We'll definitely not wait many years to return.

My visit was the last night that the January menu was to be served. We both had the Scallops, one plate was blackened (like on the menu) and the other did not have blackening powder on them (by special request). The scallops were cooked properly, and both plates were extremely flavorful. The dessert was shared, it was a spiced cake with pineapple, walnuts, with a cream cheese frosting and a bourbon apple sauce. DELICIOUS!!

Overall the meal was a joy to eat!

Like usual, I look forward to what Chef Abraham and Salum have to offer for the month of February!

Never had a bad meal at Salum. This go around I had the scallops on a bed of corn hash and it was terrific. My wife had the Beef Wellington, which was exceptional. The service was very attentive and the atmosphere makes for a very pleasant dining experience. try this place, you wont regret!

Start to finish, Salum is just lovely. Abraham is the consummate hospitality genius, from excellent food to thoughtful service and serene environment. We loved the pate, fried green tomatoes with crab meat, roasted vegetables with burrata, and a perfect bottle of French Sauvignon blanc.

The menu and quality of food was fantastic! I had the beef wellington and it was unlike any other I have had as it was a form of deconstructed Welly with a perfectly cooked filet and a thin pastry containing pâté de foie gras and a duxelles of mushrooms neatly setting on top. My wife seafood dish was also excellent; we actually swapped our dinner half way through to get the full enjoyment of the meal. The executive chef and owner visited our table kindly answered our questions. A wonderful date night for my wife and I. Thank you!

Servie excellent
My Paella was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING!!!
it was the size of an easy bake oven pan and average taste at best.
Grapevine wrapped salmon was bland
The mussels we had as appetizers were excellent.
Very good wine selection.
Won’t be going back

Not a good first impression unfortunately. Our table ‘wasn’t ready’ when we arrived, but it was obvious there was a large table open in the back of the restaurant. When we were finally seated service was excruciatingly slow. We had to flag down wait staff to get drinks etc....In the middle of our appetizers they asked if we wanted to move to the larger table that was empty since we sat down late. We moved and again waited for eons for our dinner. It took almost 2 hours to get our food. It happened to be my birthday dinner which was a disappointment. And the bill included gratuity of 20% which was a huge slap after such atrocious service !

The IXSIR Wine Dinner was fantastic! All the courses paired perfectly with each wine selected. It was nice to hear the history of the IXSIR winery, and to also have the option to purchase the wine at a discounted rate through their partnership with Sigel's. Very cool!

Salum is a jewel among Dallas restaurants. We had a dinner for 6.

All the entrees were delicious and beautifully prepared and plated. The lamb chops are a favorite and probably the most delicious and reasonably priced in town. Service is always friendly and helpful. Overall as good a meal as anywhere in Dallas.

This must be the best restaurant in Dallas. Every time I visit I believe I've eaten the best food ever. Please do yourself a favor and try the salmon in grape leaves. Incredible!!! Service was a bit neglectful at times but I think it was because the server knew I had a birthday discount and thought I'd be less generous with my tip. Well, as soon as he saw the tip he perked up, but it was a bit late at that point. Not to say that service was terrible & it's certainly understandable to think that a table with two women may not tip as generously as others. Service was the only reason I didn't rate the entire experience as 5 star.

Went for New Year's Eve. They did an excellent job. Many groups of people, although it was just the two of us. We were never rushed. We really got to enjoy our evening full of delicious food.
Started with the Mussels and Pommes Frites. So flavorful! Would be great for an entree, too.
For the entree, I had the Artic Char-my husband had the Duck. Both wonderful with wonderful accompaniments. Couldn't be happier!
Dessert-heavenly Bread Pudding.
We will return. Just a lovely, tasty dinner. Exactly what we wanted in an attractive but cozy environment.
