We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Salum, from start to finish! The service was attentive and warm. The wine by the glass was delicious & reasonably priced. We loved our mussels appetizer and salad. Our entrees were both outstanding. And we even met Chef Salum on the way out to share our compliments.
We’ll return.!

Salum has the best food & experience! The Filet is excellent. They have the best multigrain hot rolls & butter. We had Lemon Raspberry Cake made fresh . Our server, Mary, is always very friendly & anticipates every need. The music is perfect & decor is modern & beautiful. We were celebrating a birthday, but this is our favorite anytime.

The December menu is wonderful!

I had the Pan Seared Texas Redfish Maque Choux with Chili Fried Okra. The Maque and Okra were so addictive I had to ask for an extra side of it. Thankfully I was able get more of it.

My dining partner had the Grilled Swordfish Steak Mediterranean Sorghum Salad and Citrus Gremolata. He really enjoyed his meal too. Swordfish cooked perfectly medium with so many flavors that worked together on that plate.

They had a special dessert that night - Chocolate Cake!! OMG, out was outrageously awesome. Airy light cake with dense chocolate flavor!

Rachel, thank you! You are AWESOME! Thanks for another great night at Salum!

Whether for lunch or dinner, Salum is consistently good. Lunch time is generally quieter, which is why I like to take my office staff there for a special treat. Never the same dull menu as other lunch spots, so it is easy to try new dishes.

As always, the crew at Salum made us feel more than welcomed. Abraham, is as genuine and authentic of a chef you will ever run across. He continues to be creative while maintaining his consistency and offering a high quality experience. (While still being semi-casual)

We’ve been several times now to Salum and the food and service is always top notch. We are always greeted cordially at the door and seated promptly for our reservation. It is a vibrant atmosphere but we never have difficulty hearing each other at the table. This is truly a fine dining yet unpretentious gem in Dallas.

Had dinner on a Monday night, it was very quite. I ate the Cider Braised Beef Short Ribs with
Yukon Gold Potatoes, Roasted Tomatoes and Gruyere Gratin which had all the expected flavors. My dining partner had the Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai, Kecap Manis Glaze which looked amazing. He ate all of it without a word, so it was good.

Really I have been here too many times and really nothing to write but I love this place. Menu varied and changing so something for everyone. The service is always so friendly but not overbearing. They are also very efficient and responsive to requests. Has a formal/informal atmosphere. Have had lunch and dinner and food is consistently excellent. I will keep coming back and look forward to the next time.

Salum is our go-to restaurant and never disappoints. Hidden in an unassuming strip center, the staff and owner are SO welcoming and with a rather simple menu, you can't go wrong.

We have had several very good meals and very enjoyable evenings at Salum, but our last outing there was disappointing. The seafood fideau or however it was spelled was a bit overcooked and had too much pasta and too little seafood. The mussels and frites were good but nothing worth re-ordering.
Sadly it may be a long time before we return.

We had a reservation at 6 for a pretheater dinner. Our server was very attentive to our timing and closely watched our food arrival to make sure we left on time for our play. I had a favorite of mine at Salum, the lamb chop, which again was wonderful. My husband had a Spanish dish, similar to a Paella , which had seafood, and vermicelli vs rice. He had the fried green tomatoes with crab for appetizer which was excellent, and a very large potion. We had a lovely Pinot Noir
Abraham Salum was at his usual post at the restaurant and is always a welcoming host.!

We went at lunchtime. The food was suburb the best I have had in a very long time. The service was not that great there was only 2 waiters so it took a while to get drinks and food. I would give it a try at dinner. The food was remarkable.
