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!

Solid overall. Some dishes were great and others were just good, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Mushroom bread pudding was my favorite part of the meal!

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.

As usual, Abraham and co. provide a wonderful, inviting space to catch up with friends, or for a special occasion for 2. The food is some of the best in Dallas, with monthly menus that always provide seasonal freshness with flair.

Fabulous food at lunch, quiet, amazing wait staff. Had chicken fricassee (so delicious), split pea soup (fabulous, not like chowder), mussels with shoe string fries toped with a small amount of aioli (the serving - $16 - had a huge amount of mussels in a white wine broth), DELISH. Ended the meal with a bread pudding, served warm with a caramel sauce, vanilla sauce and 3 perfect raspberries YUM. Their is coffee outstanding too.

All very special. I'm taking my husband to Salum next week.
