We were the only patrons for a lunch I had scheduled for my wife's birthday (literally, there were no other diners), so the attention we received was very good. Food was delicious, well-prepared and correct temperatures. The fried green tomatos with crab appetizer was great.

What a jewel of a restaurant. The food was amazing. I have never had a wait staff as friendly, professional, and efficient as Mary. Mary thank you for making our rare night out together so special. Don't pass up on Mr. Salum's carrot cake - not at all overly sweet like most carrot cakes. Elderflower old fashioned is my new "go to drink".

It was my wife’s birthday and our friends wanted to take us out to dinner. We live close to Salum and it’s always great. We’re glad they made it through last year.

This was the first time we had been out to dinner since the Pandemic began. It was the first place we wanted to go. As usual, the food was out of this world, the service impeccable and the ambiance soothing and comfortable. It’s such a lovely restaurant. Now that we can, we will return and often.

Abraham, I didn’t score you any less, but I wanted to alert you to an uncomfortable situation - my first ever - while dining at Salum. I was the first patron in the restaurant at 11:30 and a very kind server recognized me and asked where I wanted to sit. I didn’t have a preference, so he suggested the middle table closest to the kitchen. I remarked that it used to be my favorite table when the kitchen was “open to the diners.” I had already been seated when another server yells from the front door, “he can’t sit there! It’s reserved!” There was nothing marking that table as reserved and the first server seemed a bit embarrassed. Second server yelled “he just called and reserved it!” I acted like it was no big deal, chose another table, but after eating, paying, and walking out, that table was still empty. I just thought that was beneath the quality service I have always received at Salum. Thanks for listening. Billy

What a splendid find! Went for a late lunch, the food and service were impeccable. We had the fried green tomatoes and mussels for appetizers - both were excellent. The mussels were plump and juicy, and went well with the crab cake take of the tomatoes. Main entrees were the shrimp crunch salad and mahi mahi - presentation of all dishes was splendid. Will be back for sure

My meal was spot on. My husband’s protein was very over cooked so we sent it back. This resulted in us eating our meals at 2 separate times because by the time his new order arrived, I was finished with my meal. So it ended up being a disappointing experience for us which was sad because it was our first meal indoors in a restaurant in over a year. Covid protocols seem to be observed though.

What a lovely restaurant. Go, you’ll be glad you did. Extensive wine list, service top notch, delicious menus and a pleasant ambiance. Tucked into a little neighborhood string of a place, you might easily miss-but you’ll add it to your return list.

First I must say that Abraham is an amazing owner/chef and all around person. As an ex waiter, I have noticed that the team he has assembled is well equipped to give the best service possible without you even knowing it, and I mean that in a good way. From the moment you walk in you feel like you’re being invited into a friends home for dinner, so welcoming and comfortable, if you’re just on your own or a group. Also the wine and food menu has something for everyone..... least not forget the in house made desserts!

This is our go to, and apparently the Bush’s as we have seen. If it’s good enough for a president well that says something!

You have to try Salum, hands down one of the best restaurants in the city.

Run, don’t walk to this wonderful restaurant!!

We had a great night! Salum has a really pretty dining area with well spaced tables. We started with the pate’ which was delicious. Hubs had the halibut and raved. I ordered the chicken - which I never order since I eat chicken at home several days a week. Our server said it was one of his favorite dishes, so I thought I’d try it. Wow!! That chicken??? It was really amazing...no really! Chicken!

Our server, Drew, was great. Very attentive without hovering. Chose the perfect wine for both of us.

We are already looking forward to going back for another great meal and will request Drew again. He definitely knows his stuff.

Outstanding dinner on Friday evening. My halibut was fantastic, flavorful, arrived piping hot. My wife had scallops, her favorite, prepared perfectly. Excellent service. Not hurried. A lovely place for a casual dinner or for that special occasion. Highly recommended.

Perfect all the way around! The owner greated and seated us. I asked what he liked to cook and he said the Dijon crusted rack of lamb. Amazing! Service was perfect. Several short chats with the owner/chef as he maintained a watchful but friendly eye on every minute detail. We will be back . . . often!

Three of us enjoyed our lunch immensely. It was absolutely delicious, and the service and ambience were just as wonderful as the food. The lunch menu offered so many varied choices. Two of us ordered Cobb salad with shrimp and the other had a salmon entree, and we all vowed to return and try something different each time. Obviously we were very glad we chose this restaurant!

Best Burger in Town!
We just wanted something simple - but simple can be extraordinary. The care that Salum treats all it’s dishes with is not withheld from the burger. We love that you can customize it any way you desire.
We love Salum for more structured dinners, too. But, if you have a craving for the PERFECT burger, think Salum!

We had an excellent dinner. It was the perfect place to go for dinner after attending Christmas services at Church. The family was together and everyone enjoyed it.

The food was excellent and the waiter was very helpful with suggestions from the menu.

We enjoyed the cocktails and the wine.

Overall it was just a perfect family dinner during the holidays.
