As always, Abraham and his crew provided an amazing dining experience. The level of service at Salum is superior to most restaurants in Dallas. The food is always exceptional. No matter if you are a regular or someone who has never had the pleasure of dining at Salum, everyone is treated like family. With 10 people in our party, Sader and the staff were able to accommodate those who had dietary restrictions.

Decent ambiance but not as busy or colorful as my previous visits. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. Caprese salad was tasty but the lobster was lackluster and that’s being nice. overall, Salum feels to be dropping off a bit and won’t be able to keep up with the competitive price point if this continues.

We love this restaurant! The first time we messed up our reservation, totally our fault, but the host found a way to seat us. Later, we found out that the host was the owner! Rachael has been our server the last two times and she is just the best! Our favorite thing is the fried green tomato appetizer.

Had a bit of a snafu once we were seated (took 5 minutes for a server to come to our table), but the maitre d' came over and corrected the situation very effectively, offered us drinks, desserts, etc. Very great service after the initial hiccup, and the food was excellent. The lamb chops specifically were amazing.

Great service — cooked extra vegetables after the artichoke hearts were too tough. The burger was delicious, as was the sauce that came with the squid ink fettuccine.

Food uneven. My mussels (as a main course) were excellent, but my wife took the Open Table set menu, sea bass, not particularly great (too many chopped olives, didn't match). Pate was excellent as a starter, her salad was good. Very noisy, a little scruffy, neighborhood place. Wine wildly overpriced, meals reasonable. have a bone to pick with Open Table: We booked for FRIDAY but reservation showed up as SATURDAY. Got confirmation, but like a dummy, didn't look at it. so had to wait a half-hour to get a table. So, good but not great.

Always have a great experience when we visit Abri and his wonderful staff! Yesterday was no exception! The food was great, we loved the vegetarian marinara meatball sandwich with mozzarella and pesto! Most of all we love the love that is always in the air at this intimate restaurant. Many thanks to Abri and Alicia for their attention to our group that was celebrating my husband and me for our 27th anniversary and our friend Pat on her soon to be 96th birthday!

Excellent! First time there, but it will not be our last. Hard to believe that this high caliber restaurant sits in a strip mall, but there it is, white table cloths and all. Everything was outstanding. The salads were nicely done ( we split the ceaser) and the lamb chops are the best I’ve had. The menu was so good it was difficult to choose one thing. The price range is high, but the food and service was worth it.

Great meal from locally sourced ingredients. Menu changes each month to take advantage of fresh local fare. Food prepared exactly as ordered and seasoned perfectly. Staff was very attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. Rachel our server did a great job. Especially enjoyed the intimate ambience affording easy conversation at the table without distraction. Food and wine were both an excellent value. Highly recommend.

This is an intimate restaurant appropriate for special occasions. The food was wonderful and the service was very good. In fact, the Maître D' was kind enough to walk my mother-in-law back from the restroom, as she is frail and uses a cane. Above and beyond. We will return.

Exceptional food and service. Chef and owner Abraham personally interacted with nearly everyone in the restaurant, welcoming some, bringing orders to tables for others, and personally asked how the meal was. My girlfriend had the lamb and I had the tenderloin, both were wonderfully prepared, more-than-fairly priced, and were so good that I am looking to come back soon. It's not often that I experience a perfectly rounded meal of service, atmosphere, taste, and value. Salum was all of these.
