Service was great from start to finish. The attention for our special occasion being our Anniversary was great. Champagne on the house, Happy Anniversary noted on our menus, and great recommendations from both of our servers. The food and drinks were delicious. My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner.

Delectable food and drinks, exceptional service, and great ambiance! This is one of my favorite restaurants. If you're from the McAllen area, you must visit this restaurant to experience its organic and sustainable products, and to show a local business some support. If you're not from the RGV, this is a place to visit when you're in McAllen. You will be happily amazed and you will want to visit again! Some of my favorites are the pork ribs, the fried chicken, macaroni & cheese, Brussel sprouts, pork belly lettuce wraps, grilled pear salad, and not to mention the cocktails (Salty Dog, Paloma)! Chef Larry & Jessica have an exceptional team. Wonderful experience!

Good service; ambiance was good; would have appreciated background music to be more “ laid back”; (ie light classical or smooth jaz). Food was excellent; presentation was well executed.

Wonderful restaurant, everything was excellent. There was just one group of individuals at a table who were quite a bit louder than necessary. It made it difficult to talk with my table of 2 at times. Other than that, no complaints.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. They had our table ready when we walked in, explained what was on the Salt Board that we got, and suggested some mixed drinks we might like. The margarita is delicious and my husband enjoyed his black and blue very much.
When it was time for the main course, I was torn between the scallops and the filet. Our server highly recommend the filet and I'm glad she did. It was amazing. So tender and juicy. And the carrot-ginger sauce they served it with was perfect. Usually I can't finish a 6 ounce steak, but I had no problem finishing this 8 ounce filet.
We had the blonde for dessert and it was warm with cool ice cream on the side.
It was just a great night overall. We'll gladly come back again.

Shrimp app and filet were perfect! I ordered a chocolate martini off-menu for dessert and they did a fantastic job to accommodate. Friendly prompt service. Hands free check pay is a nice option.

We were visiting from out of town and took a friend's advice to dine at SALT. It is among the best advice he has ever given to me!! The ambiance and team were welcoming and quickly put us at ease. My Manhattan was beautifully made and then our food was off of the chart! For an appetizer, the Shishito peppers are a must. Keep the sauce for your meat dish (a recommendation of our server). I had the honey infused duck and it was so tender and flavorful. The deserts were tempting but I just could not do it. This a must when you visit McAllen, Tx.

While the food and the ambience are great, the service is not. We were seated and it took someone well over 20 minutes to even look our way and ask us if we had been helped yet.

I have been here many times and it is amazing each time I go. The ribeye and chicken are my favorite plates to order. The shiracha shrimp is one of the best appetizers I suggest everyone should try. The Mac and Cheese is AMAZING, and if you like grapefruit I definitely recommend the Salty Dog drink

I always love coming to SALT with my husband. Today was for a business meeting but it was just what we needed. The quiet atmosphere to be able to talk business but still have the quality food and atmosphere. The staff was unobtrusive yet always on hand when/if we needed anything.

Drinks were good. Appetizer was good. Salad was good. The steak was terrible. Lacked flavor and had an excess of fat. It certainly was not a 60 dollar value.

If you only have one night in McAllen, you must try Salt! From the ambience, (outside service) to the service, to the food, everything was perfect! We had the fried chicken which was perfection, the ahi tuna plate, delicious and beautifully presented and the filet plate, cooked perfectly and with great accompaniments. A side order of Mac and cheese, was delicious! Highly recommend!
Our waiter, Milton, added the personal touch that made our evening very special. No wonder Salt is the #1 McAllen restaurant!

We were SO grateful to find SALT on Trip Advisor (#1) and more grateful that we got a reservation and had a wonderful dinner. The ravioli was the best ever, as was the fried chicken. The Old Fashion cocktail was delicious. We’re in town for UTRGV baseball from Seattle but will be back!!
