Every thing we had was outstanding.
It was sad to see an empty house right after 9 but that's the time we live in now. Hope this staple survives. Please support them by going there. Texas goat cheese, tomato bisque, and squid pasta are the best.

great small plates menu, also a great full bar and wine selection. They did a great job with dine in service in the middle of the Covid requirements. We shared 4 different small plates and each one was very unique and fantastic taste and presentation. I will visit this place again soon!

Our service was excellent. Really appreciated the wait staff and knowledge of the menu and wine list. Very peaceful environment. We were with our young adult kids celebrating our 30th Anniversary! We’ll be back some day.

Had an excellent time at Salum recently for an anniversary dinner. The food was exquisite and the service was top notch. They made sure everyone was spread out for social distancing and all of the staff were wearing masks. We’ll definitely be back!

Salum is still one of our top picks in Dallas after 15 years. The food is consistently great and the menu changes enough to experience Chef Salum’s creativity. Most of the staff have been there a while and service is excellent. The dining room is serene. It puts you in a relaxed mood the minute you arrive. Looking forward to another 15 years!

It's always such a treat when I am in the area and can dine at Salum. I had the Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. It was fantastic! Chef Abraham came over, as he always does, to welcome me. If you are anywhere near this restaurant, I highly recommend it. Five Stars!

I really enjoyed ordering one of the August specials in addition to my mainstay, the mussels! I've been to many restaurants in the county and this remains #1 on my list. I'm looking forward to see what might be a new addition on the September menu!

Our dinner experience was excellent from start to finish. The fried green tomatoes and gazpacho were a great start. I had the Shrimp Pappardelle which was delicious. The service was prompt and Chef Abraham came by to ensure we enjoyed our meal. Five stars!

We were the first ones in; quiet and pleasant. Food delicious- could have been hotter not just warm though. We had the swordfish and the lobster entrees, with a fruit crumble for dessert.
Well spaced tables and all staff were wearing masks.

We had a very nice evening at Salum. Mr. Salum greeted us at the door and was very welcoming. The staff was friendly and attentive. We could hear each other without having to talk loudly. The food is always outstanding. We each had something different and all 4 meals were wonderful. We'll go back soon.

Old Testament Rachel took great care of us and helped make our date night experience super fun during a down time of the Rona. Being our first trip Rachel spent time with us and clued us in as to which items are “always” on the menu versus this month only - hint: get the appetizer with figs - I forget what it’s called but they will know. I never get appetizers but I am overjoyed I tried this one paired with a Pinot. I had red fish (superb) and date had filet (obviously good). Wonderful experience and look forward to going back.

Talk about creative and artistic cookery, Abram Salum has it all down, and keeps getting better. By changing his menu quarterly we are treated to new designs on a regular basis. So last week that fabulous oriental fried chicken (I hope that's right), then Sat night's Grilled Watermelon Salad—shockingly delicious and clever, GRILLED DUROC DRY AGED PORK CHOP with a tomato sauce on Pimento Cheese Grits (shades of grandmother), and a fine selection of house wines—I'm drawn to Ribera del Duero alway, made for a splendid and romantic dinner. Keep up the good work, Abram

Having read all the glowing reviews, I made a reservation at Salum for a special occasion. The best part of our meal was attentive service and cocktails which were perfectly mixed. The fried green tomato appetizer lacked in flavor. The grilled lobster came on a bed of so much bread that it reminded me of poorly executed dishes at cheap restaurants where they provide more quantity than quality. Unacceptable at Salum's price point. The rib eye was good, but not worth the price tag. The desserts were good if not on an excessively sweet side.

I also disliked the restaurant's décor - a bit tired with depressing dark carpeted flooring.
