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.

One of Dallas’ best. Professional service, innovative menu that changes monthly, other than a few classics that the regulars expect. Get anything with lobster, best lamb in town. Every return visit, I wonder why I waited so long to come back. Quiet early but can be loud on weekends after 7:00.

Truly exceptional. Food was prepared perfectly and timely.
Service was spot on except for bearded waiter at next table who picked up napkin woman dropped on floor while getting up and threw it onto her wrap next to where she was sitting. He seemed to be rather bothered by something.
No room for dessert this visit but understand the bread pudding is excellent. Will be back.

GO there! ALWAYS a delicious and wonderful experience. Abraham Salum is not only a creative and gifted chef, he cares about his guests.

While there are favorite dishes consistently on the menu, new options are added each month. They are inspired by cultures around the globe and the USA. AND, on Friday nights, there is homemade cake... lemon blueberry, chocolate, goat cheese cheesecake! If you have dietary restrictions, they will graciously accommodate.

The ambiance is casually elegant and highlighted by the tenured staff who offers a warm greeting and knowledge about the cuisine, wine, etc.

We were so impressed with the ambiance, hospitality and service. Our server, Larry, was exceptional. Salum came to the table and spoke with us and said goodbye as we left. We both enjoyed our food very much. The portions are very generous.

Table for three... I had the Grilled Iceberg Salad and Black bean and Chorizo Croquettes as my entree, both were delicious. I really enjoyed the Croquettes, the chorizo had a spice kick that gave balance to the black bean flavor. Diner 2 had the same as I did, and he enjoyed the combination of flavors. Diner 3 had the Build your Own Burger. It looked like it was one heck of a burger! I've had it once before, but I'm going to have to try again with his combination of toppings. He kept on going on about how flavorful it was.
