Well appointed bar, food presentation and taste of each dish was excellent. Service was excellent, I love the ambiance... small out of the way place that has a regular, upscale clientele. With tip, pricing was close to $100 per person, which included Wine/cocktails (2 per person). I will definitely go back, I don't think anyone who tries this establishment will be disappointed.

It was my partners birthday and he had never been to Salum. We had the best service and the food was top notch. Delicious crunch salad with strawberries and almonds, mussels, tenderloin and chocolate cake were all incredible! I can’t say enough good things about our experience there and I can’t wait to go back!

This restaurant made me feel like I was going back in time. The ambiance and especially the food! The dishes were quite bland and under seasoned and most everything had walnuts and similar sauces.
Also, I had mentioned on the reserve that it was a bday celebration but. I thing was done or said.
The wait staff r very nice but we won’t be going again.

I have gone to Salum for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent great service and beautiful atmosphere. I especially like that the tables are spread so far apart I feel safer than at most restaurants during Covid.

Our first visit to Salum and it did not disappoint. Great service, food, drinks and ambiance. The noise level did increase as the restaurant became busier but it was acceptable. A great discovery and dining experience for us. Thanks to all at Salum!

Even though we had a 7 pm reservation and we’re on time, got seated at a table right next to the kitchen. Lots of open tables. We ordered mussels and they brought out bread before . We ate it thinking more would come with the mussels. Nope, took the bread away when the mussels came. Have they ever eaten mussels?!? The wine was delicious and my Black Manhattan was delicious. The food was so so. Service fair to good. Dallas has far too many good restaurants in this genre to make Salum a repeat.

This restaurant lived up to its high praise. They have a classy setting and wonderful service staff. The LAMB! And the PEI mussels! Second to none!
On top of that, Mr. Abraham Salum, the founder and namesake of the establishment took his time to come by and made sure that our evening was memorable. We highly recommend this hidden gem just outside of the Dallas downtown district to anyone looking for great food and attentive service.

Went there for Restaurant Week and have nothing but good things to say about this place. Both appetizers were amazing with the Goat Cheese and Garlic as well as the Chorizo Stuffed Peppers. Dinner was a Pappardelle Pasta with Beef, which was good and the Mahi Mahi. Probably the best mahi mahi I have ever had. Nice wine list and had a very nice pinot noir. Great ambiance in a small place that must seat about 60-70 people with the open kitchen concept so you can see the chefs at work making some great food. Highly recommend this place and I know we will be back many more times.

Went for Restaurant week.
Atmosphere was nice in the restaurant. Low light and quaint. That was nice.
Food was decent, not bad but certainly not excellent. I admit I am a bit of a food snob but my daughter felt the same way. Chose the pork tenderloin...my daughter had the Mahi Mahi. She said the Mahi Mahi was good, tenderloin was average...appetizers of Goat Cheese and clams were ok. Dessert was pretty good.

Service was pretty good. Again, not bad but not excellent (server never even said good-bye..just dropped off the bill and kept walking). We were on the Restaurant week menu (even though I made reservations we still had to tell the server that because he brought us the wrong menu initially). I am not cheap, as I do catering but $90.00 (that includes tip) or what we got was a bit high even for Rest week. Drove a long way to eat here based on the excellent online reviews for Salum but for $90 dollars you can do better.
