Had dinner anniversary here. Service was great. Food and drink were even better. Place is small but very intimate. Chefs bar is a great spot to eat and watch the cuisine being created. A little over priced but it was worth it for an anniversary dinner.

Great service staff every time I come here. They ran late on my reservation but the cute bar with the great all around selection of cocktails, wines and spirits made up for it. I would recommend seating outside for a more quiet romantic feel.

This was by far the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The staff was superb, very knowledgeable on the menu and drink pairings. Food came out in a timely manner. The quality of the food is what stands out the most to me. Mostly locally sourced ingredients of the best quality, prepared mostly in an open kitchen. SALT is a cozy, but upscale restaurant. It was certainly not something I expected to find in McAllen, but is the reason I would come back to McAllen for pleasure rather than business.

Sorry but it was nothing special about this place. And service quality doesn’t deserve the value of the price. There are much better fine dining restaurant in the valley and they are cheaper. I used live nyc, Miami Beach and even overthere, there are high quality service and food less pricey from here

Fabulous food and great, friendly service! I suggest eating at the chef's bar. The chefs are creative and provide small samples of some of their creations. Top three favorite places to eat ANYWHERE.

Great night. Food & service are always superb. You can’t go wrong with any of the appetizers. fried chicken, duck; & Piedmontese steak big winners tonight. The goat cheese ice cream was gone before I could taste, but the cream brûlée & beignets were great. Who can resist a donut?! Thanks for another great night.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we felt at home. The gracious and friendly hostess apologized that they were running slightly behind schedule and offered us seats at the Captain's Table, which is a counter next to the kitchen. Similar to eating at the bar but you watch the cooks prepare the food instead of the bartender prepare the drinks. Interesting idea but we declined and ordered drinks at the real bar. Less than 10 minutes later, we were at our table ready to order.

We had three appetizers - Sriracha Shrimp, Poke and Sweet Breads - all of which were excellent. For entrees, my daughter ordered the duck, my wife ordered the scallops and I had the squid ink pasta. All the dishes were excellent, a highly creative and well thought out fusion of Asian, Mexican and Euro-American flavors. Surprisingly, all of us rated the homemade bucatini as our favorite. (They spell it "buccatini" for some reason.) We finished our meal with Baked Alaska (!) and Creme Brulee. Wow!

Combined with perfect lighting and acoustics, the crisp, clean ambience, great service, original, fresh and perfectly prepared food and the large and reasonably priced wine list more than justifies the bill. SALT is well worth your time and money.

Although the food was the star of the experience, meeting Larry was very important for me. It gave me an idea about how the restaurant matured, which is very important.

Because of the dining room set up the place was a bit loud, which is not conducive to quiet conversation.

But the overall experience was excellent. I liked it so much I am going back again today.

Salt never disappoints -- the food is amazing and unlike any other menu in the RGV. The service is wonderful, the wine list is replete with great selections. Sit up at the chef's bar if you really want to have some fun. And once you've been there a couple of times, everyone will know your name. Best in the Valley.

This restaurant is always amazing. I would come here every weekend if I could. The food is great, and they use seasonal & local vegetables which really adds to the flavors on the plate. The atmosphere is perfect for a date or couples evening, and the service is always incredible. I recommend SALT to everyone - whether for intimate occasions or business dinners, this location is the perfect mix of upscale dinning while maintaining a level of casual comfort. Can't wait to come again!

I have always had great service and food here; today the food was outstanding but the service was lacking. The waitress seemed nonchalant about getting our orders correct, the manager offered to make it right and we appreciated her offer. I will not let one instance keep me from coming back; we all can have a bad day. The place and food are outstanding!!!

Sat at chef's bar with my wife and two kids and it was great. My kids both had the filet, my wife had the ribs and I had the pork shank. Everything was delicious and the chefs were great. My kids loved their delicious medium rare steak. I had the pork shank for the first time and will definitely have it again. The pan de campo that accompanied my shank was delicious as well.
