This restaurant is so loud you can’t hear at the tables. No separation from the bar, tables crammed too close. Layout needs updating. Not going back.

Fried green tomatoes under cooked. Not warm. Very uninteresting. Redfish was raw in the center. Not very tasty. Pate was very good. Staff very extremely friendly and service was very good. Nice relaxing restaurant. I am sorry the food was not better. I did like the restaurant itself and the very nice staff. May give it another try I was told the chef owner was not there that night. Maybe food is better when he is present

We had a wonderful night at Salum! We started with Pate that was wonderful! The grilled salad was delicious & my husband loved his soup. I had the Indonesian fish dish & hubs had the braised short ribs. Both were excellent.
Our waiter was knowledgeable and elegantly attentive. He chose the perfect wine pairing for our meal.
I can’t say enough good things about the evening we had.
We will be back at Salum soon!!

We always enjoy Salum. Most recent visit two had mussels, one the tenderloin- enjoyed very much.
The pumpkin ravioli with shrimp was not hot and did not have the pizzazz we are used to- would not get this again. Great staff.
Still love this place and will be back many times.

Since Salum opened in 2005, it has been a pleasure to dine there! The cuisine is always consistently seasonal, inventive, and delicious, and the service is very attentive but not intrusive. With Executve Chef and owner Abraham Salum manning the kitchen, you can’t go wrong! Can’t wait to return!!

Friends have been telling me to go to Salum - wish I'd listened earlier. It was fabulous - the menu changes regularly so always new and innovative. Our party of 4 had 4 different dishes - fish, steak, lamb and pasta and everyone was delighted. The capresse salad was a masterpiece that I had to share with one friend who had happily ordered the soup of the day (but wanted two starters!) . The service was friendly, efficient and fun. The owner and chef came out to every table which really delighted my foodie out of town guests. My friends had room for dessert - the creme brûlée (one of the best ever), bread pudding (amazing) and sherbet! Going back with my husband in the near future to have the lamb which looked amazing (and fortunately stays on the menu)!
