We always enjoy our visits to Salum. This week was no exception. We had lunch with our dear friend, George Harris, and laughed and shared stories and vowed to do this again very soon. We are sorry we missed Abri! I had the season pumpkin ravioli - YUMMY!!! And we all shared some of the bread pudding!
It feels like a hidden gem, a small/medium venue that churns out delectable eats with an elegant ambiance (gentle, yet ample lighting, comfortable seats, table lights, etc) that gives this place an aura of something special, prompting you to think it requires an occasion, but I more than assure you it's absolutely welcoming to casual eaters, like a neighborhood staple. The bread is fresh and delicious, the soup of the day is scrumptious, cocktails well-balanced and ever-changing, just like the seasonal menu. We had three different plates between us 3 and not a single plate had any leftovers. Yes, they can COOK and it shows. I was there for my birthday and they made a little delightful affair of it when our wonderful guide for the evening recommended the bourbon bread pudding. I could go on, but just go and see and enjoy yourself here. Have the chef greet you personally because he cares about your experience, the staff guide you along your evening, the drinks tasty, and the courses even more delightful. I'll be back in a couple weeks to take my brother out here too when he's back in town.
Salum is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Dallas. I always enjoy my time there. The food is consistently amazing, as is the service and staff. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
It was a Saturday night and room noise was loud by Salum standards, medium in comparison to most restaurants these days. Food was, as usual, delicious. Service was impeccable.
Still one of the very best restaurants in Dallas with some of the very best food. Great atmosphere and ease of parking, too.
Delicious tenderloin, excellent char, attentive but not intrusive service.
Greeted by the owner and the staff was attentive the entire time - making great suggestions along the way
Outstanding mederainan style restaurant. The food and service were both terrific. The escargot in a pastry was some of the best I have had. The Barramundi was very tasty fish dish entre.
This is my go-to business meeting lunch destination. It also works for date night.
Salum NEVER disappoints. In a town where the “latest & Greatest” is the sought after Gem, Abraham Salum proves himself to be a legend in culinary comfort while revealing that very passion IS his secret ingredient. A deceptively simple menu is exactly what showcases his talent to express devotion and dedication to quality through uniquely creative dishes. This experience is only elevated by the staff that shares his vision through an open concept kitchen that invites you in to see just how that magic is made.
Here’s to many more years of sharing your talents with every bite! 🥂
Excellent food and staff. The portions were big enough to split with someone else. Delicious!
Had a great time as always. Service was impeccable snd the food was fantastic!
This restaurant is consistently delicious, with excellent service.
It never disappoints. It's the poster child of fine dining.
Excellent food, experienced engaging knowledgeable wait staff
Abraham continues to set the standard for American dining in Dallas. While there continue to be old favorites on the menu, some menu items are constantly changing. Specifically, the escargots appetizer is now served in a delicate, buttery puff pastry which is absolutely terrific.
One of Dallas’ best restaurants and best chef. Always a delight.
Server had spot on suggestions. The Cambodian amok was wonderfully prepared. Excellent dining experience.
Great food and service.
Salum is simply outstanding. The decor and ambiance is perfect and when coupled with chef Abraham’s incredible cuisine it is tough to beat. Really outstanding experience.
Loved everything about the dining experience at Salum, as usual!!
Overall good. Cocktail menu was only so so. Need more vibrant cocktail menu. Too dark.
We love this place for lunch and dinner. This was probably my 30th or 30th visit and Salum did not disappoint. Spaghetti carbonara: good cheese sauce but overall too salty -- with parmesan and bacon, salt can be an issue but doesn't have to be.
Beef wellington was not en croute but the tenderloin had a little "beanie" of puff pastry and that was actually just fine. Two orders came out of the kitchen perfectly cooked: one medium rare, one medium. Excellent side veggies.
The black manhattan was worth getting again, the curry beef soup was outstanding, and the apple-berry crisp was, as usual, outstanding.
Service was a bit on the diffident side. We had to ask for our cocktail order to be taken and once drinks were delivered had to ask for the bread (three pieces in the basket for a table of three? seemed a little light).
We loved our evening. Our server, Rachel, was top notch, and our food was excellent. We especially loved the chocolate cake for dessert. Rachel told us that Abraham Salum has made it himself!
This is the perfect spot for date night or celebrating a special event. Food is amazing and the service is second to none. Chef Abraham Salum is so kind and makes a point to make you feel at home.
Nice experience but food was a disappointment particularly the pate
Sill one of the best dining experiences in Dallas. Great food and service and chef owned, too. Should be on your lists of places to dine.
It was our anniversary and the food and service here is always first class. My wife had fried green tomatoes stuffed with crab meat and then lobster tail with watermelon. I had crispy shrimp spring rolls and then beef Wellington. Our dessert was sticky toffee date cake. It was all wonderful! The chef/owner, Abraham Salum, greets and seats you and then checks back after your meal to make sure it was enjoyable. That says a lot after opening this great restaurant 14 years ago. Thank you.
Beautiful ambiance! Chef greeted us at the door and took us to our table. The food was very delicious, and unique. We will return in the future
This is our absolute favorite go to restaurant for a lovely dinner with friends for special evening. And Mary is the best server ever! Please don’t ever go away!
Salum never disappoints! The food is delicious and the wait staff friendly and very professional. Abraham Salum is always there making sure you are enjoying the experience.
Amazing fettuccini with red sauce and chicken! Fantastic warm olive bread with butter. 1st time guest. I'll be back!!
Very enjoyable evening, very helpful service
will come again
Great neighborhood restaurant with a warm welcome and very good food and service
We go often and always a wonderful experience
I had the Chicken Fried Spicy Pork Wings with Red Eye Gravy and Vinegar Greens, and it was so delicious. the service was spot on, as usual.
I would like to thank the staff of Salum, y'all always make dinner a great event!
Food was good but not great. I love the intimate atmosphere and wanted the food to be delicious but it just wasn’t. Sadly, we won’t be back.
Made sure my dining experience was perfect.
I love Salum and have dined there many times. The menu is creative and varied. Always good service. Easy in and out and not fussy. But in the last few visits the food has been slightly below expectations. Really just giving a heads up to Abraham and the staff to take a close look. It’s still a lovely, warm place.
We had no expectations when we went in and enjoyed it start to finish. The wine we chose was excellent and the service responsive. Was a tight dinner room but you don't go there to hang out you go for the food. Chef greeted us at the end of the meal and seemed very proud of his dishes, with good reason.
Food was just okay.
We had the fried green tomatoes as appetizer, the concept was great, but I didn’t like the breading on the tomatoes it was too much
I also think for the price I need a larger piece of rainbow trout.
Went for restaurant week. Apps were all great. Entrees - 1 great, 1 good, 1 ok (chicken was dry). Dessert was surprisingly good given that we could see them microwaving the brownies in batches.
Service could have been better. Wanted to order another drink and waited so long decided not to. Also had to wait longer than desired sometimes for water refills.
Will go back and try a “normal” meal.
