Always an outstanding meal at Abraham’s restaurant. The food is consistently delicious and chef inspired. An award winning chef might we add. Abraham visited our table and said happy birthday. An a nearby table bought us a round of port. The place is filled with friendly people from the staff to the regular guests. A very nice ambience and low noise level. Perfect for any special occasion:-)

If it is not "the best," Salum has to be ranked among the best restaurants in Dallas. The food is inventively prepared, properly sourced, presented with aplomb, and delicious. The staff is, without fail, welcoming and professional. The ambience is warm, and, frankly, it is just a beautiful room in which to dine. You can have a conversation at Salum--not many places in Dallas can make that boast any more. It reminds my wife and I of so many family-owned restaurants in Europe. Oh, and the wine list is filled with carefully calibrated vintners and vintages. You feel like they give a damn that you are there and that they're going to do everything they can to get you back--without straining.

April 2019 visit

I had the Chicken Breast Al Pastor with Black Bean Puree and Plantain Pineapple Relish, which was extremely flavorful and decadent. The Al Pastor sauce was deep and played well with Plantain Pineapple Relish. My dining partner had the Pan Seared Scallops with Summer Succotash and Pumpkin Seed Picada. The plate was huge and he had no complaints about the dish. He said that the Succotash and pumpkin seed picada almost outshined the Scallops.

Thank you to everybody at Salum for a wonderful evening as usual.

Can't wait for my next meal Salum

Delicious food in a neighborhood venue. Don't let the strip center fool you. Service was excellent. Chef Abraham comes out of the kitchen to check on his guests which is a really nice touch.

We always enjoy our visits to Salum and yesterday was no exception. Neil was our server and he and Abraham were able to accommodate my husband's need for a meal with minimal salt. We had a special friend with us and all of us had a great time! Yummy food and great service make for a happy lunch hour!

So many better options at the price point. Food is/was okay across the board but, ok food is a dime a dozen and at the price point it’s another disappointment at Salum. Great atmosphere, staff and ambiance. A perfect setting for a date or small party but food just never lives up to expectation.

This is a gem of a restaurant. Everything on the menu looked fantastic and we had a hard time deciding. We got the fish, lamb and tenderloin and were very impressed with it all. The ambiance was just okay... a bit of an older crowd. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great neighborhood restaurant! Menu was interesting and the food taste and quality were great. We ate a late lunch (1:00 reservation), so the restaurant was fairly quiet. Probably busier at earlier times and at dinner. Service was friendly and the ambiance was warm and inviting. I enjoyed this experience and I will definitely try this one again!

As usual Chef Abraham came through with big flavor!

I had the Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Honey Bacon Brussel Sprouts and left the plate clean. My dining partner had Pan Seared Scallops with Gristmill Grits and Mustard Seed Chow Chow, and he really enjoyed every bite.

Every time I eat at Salum, I am amazed by Chef Abraham's flavor combinations. He is a real master!

Be sure to try the lamb chops with mushroom bread pudding. Perfect! Unassuming from outside - you might even miss that this cozy little restaurant exists unless you're looking for it. But once you're inside you'll be happy you found it. Great selection of scotch and nice assortment of custom drink specials. It's been a favorite of many of our friends for years, but we finally got around to trying it ourselves, and very happy we did.

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?
