The experience was amazing! I love that the food was not over seasoned, it was cooked to perfection and the staff was incredible. Aside from the food itself, the waiter is what really set this place apart from other spots.

Had the Lavender cocktail, Baby Bibb salad, beef filet, and a nice cab by the glass. Everything was excellent. It was an easy night for the dishwashers because I ate every morsel. Enjoyed chatting with the manager Martin throughout the meal. Highly recommend, best meal I have had when visiting the Rio Grande Valley.

From beginning to end the dining experience was top notch!

The service was beyond our expectations! Attentive without being overbearing even though it seemed that the entire staff waited on us. We had a need for nothing during the entire 2+ hour evening.

Cocktails were reasonably priced and delicious. I especially appreciated the Whisk(e)y selection available.

Our food was exceptional! The Sriracha Shrimp starter and the Grilled Pear Salad were shared and were both mouth wateringly delicious. Our entrees were the Picanha, which was cooked and seasoned to perfection, and the Deep-Fried Pork Shank served with amazing sauces. Sides of choice were half orders of the Brussel Sprouts and the Mac & Cheese. Both were very well done but the Mac & Cheese is probably the best I have ever tasted! We finished our dining experience with the Fall Special (Pumpkin) Baked Alaska and words fail in just how yummy this dish was for both of us!

While everything was exceptional, the one thing that I appreciated more than all was that at no time did we feel rushed through our meal. This, along with the uncommon level of customer service will long leave an indelible impression on both of us and an example of comparison in the future.

Ian, the Manager, should be commended for the outstanding and professional work that he and ALL of his staff are providing!

I highly recommend Salt!

We welcomed a new employee to our team at BBB Industries, LLC. Although all three of us have been to SALT previously, the safe and sanitized environment, combined with outstanding service and food, made it a wonderful experience. Ian, Nadia, Rachel, RJ and Tanya all made us feel at home. What a great team!

Great service by the team. Loved the atmosphere they created. Unfortunately food was below expectations. The duck was poorly prepared. Very gamey taste. Scallops had weird pairing. Side dishes were actually very good (beet roots and brussel sprouts). Probably an off night for the kitchen.

The duck and the mac n cheese were amazing! The Brussel sprouts seemed a little too crispy and the New York strip was just ok, but the mushroom sauce it came with was delicious. Also ordered the blonde brownie dessert, it was just ok as well. I found the lemon whip cream a little too overpowering. All in all it was good but not great! I would come back and try other things. Cute place!

Amazing food, amazing service like always! First time dining out on the patio and even though it had just rained everything was perfect, they set up a huge fan for us out there and weren’t even hot or humid for a second. We felt extremely safe with everyone wearing their masks and keeping distance between spaces, they even provided masks if you needed one! (They did not require a mask while sitting at your table) Overall, another perfect experience at one of my favorite spots in the valley, thank you so much SALT and staff!🙏🏻

Way too expensive for what’s offered. I got scallops and they brought 3. Paid extra for bread even though we ordered 2 large salads. Not worth it.
