The best cooked sole and scallops I've had in a while. While not a big cocktail person, the Bees Knees and Black Manhattan were very good. Enjoy yourself!

There's are reasons we keep coming to Salum. Abraham's menu, staff, and atmosphere continue to draw us back! From Abraham greeting us at the door, to the attentiveness of the wait staff (this was the second time in a row that Larry was our server. He's wonderful), and the changing monthly menus, we love coming back to experience Salum.

Excellent food in an elegant, yet informal, venue. Very attentive waitstaff, and chef/owner Abraham Salum keeps an eye in the kitchen and on the tables to make sure everything is perfect for his customers.

The high quality we have come to expect, remains intact, and with Abraham’s monthly changes keeps everyone engaged. The sign of an excellent restaurant is the longevity of its staff. You know them and they know you and your preferences. It remains a magnet that keeps pulling us back. It’s where you go not only for a celebratory event, but for just a friendly homey and delicious meal. The chef’s presence always adds to the pleasure. The restaurant Salum is truly Abraham Salum!.

The portion of food for what you pay is pathetic. The service was absolutely horrible. I truly do not know how this got four stars and has 1200 reviews. I went to this with high expectations and was completely let down. Despite all of its awards in High OpenTable ratings this place does not deserve the accolades that has been awarded. The dishes were not unique and multiple items were used in multiple dishes as the same. Do not waste your time or your money this will be the last time I also trust open table reviews.

Abraham and his staff are consistently top notch. I have enjoyed catering from Salum in the past but tonight we went to the restaurant. The food/wine was outstanding and it was only rivaled by the service. Quality and portions were perfection. I didn't even notice the wait staff during the meal because they automatically refilled drinks without interrupting our conversation. Our friends had never been to Salum before and they loved it. They wrote us the following day joking that they were still conjuring up memories of the delicious berry crumble! This is the place you want to go for celebrating a special milestone or just to impress guests in general.

I've been dining at Salum for three-plus years and have yet to have a bad experience. The food is always great, and the service is spot on! I love the fact the menu is ever-changing. You will be left craving something from past months, but looking forward to new flavor profiles that Chef Abraham cooks up. You can't go wrong eating at Salum!

Wonderful ambiance. I had the swordfish prepared to the chef’s recommendation and it was dry and pretty flavorless. My other guests were very good

Food was good as usual but it was so cold that we skipped desert and left. We asked them twice to warm it up a little to no avail. Heard other customers comment how cold it was.

Very busy and a bit slow but our table enjoyed the time together. It seemed very loud this Saturday night but I haven't been recently so can't compare it to another night. Dallas is this way so I have learned to live with it. The goat cheese and garlic app and the oysters were fantastic. The fried green tomatoes seemed to be missing something. Lamb chops were outstanding and the beef tenderloin was good and perfectly done but not very flavorful.

The chef/owner's visit to the table and personal attention to all details make this a special experience that you can't get at most restaurants. And the food is delicious, too! Very reasonable pricing. Great choice all around!

Have heard about this restaurant for years! 8 people in our party and so expectations were high!
The food was great, but service was a little slower than we expected! The swordfish was really salty and not a very well balanced entree! But all the other dishes we tasted were really good! Will go back for sure!

HISTORICALLY CONSISTENT - Salum is a gem among the many options for culinary experiences in Dallas. The staff is always attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is great, from appetizers to desserts and always prepared perfectly with visually appealing platings. It has a warm vibe that is memorable and never pretentious. If you enjoy savory lamb chops, they have the best in town from my vantage point. Desserts are irresistibly decadent. This is clearly a place where chef and staff actually care and have the passion to continually prove it.
