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!!

This was our second date night to SALT, and it has been exceptional both times. Waiting staff was wonderfully charismatic and knowledgeable about what's being served. My only bit of caution is that you should expect to spend about $50-75 per person if you get appetizers and/or dessert. Do I think the food was worth the price? Absolutely! Would I eat here every weekend? No -- it would lose it's allure and fine-dining/home-grown feel.

This was my first time going to SALT and let me just tell you, everything was amazing. I ordered the filet plate and it was just perfect and delicious. Our server was a bilingual lady, don't remember her name, but she was so friendly and made us feel so welcomed. Her skills as a server were spot on and was so kind. I will definitely be back. Also, loved the atmosphere and how friendly and outgoing it was from the moment I got there. Thank you for the great food and service!

Always a great experience here! The service is exceptional, from the host to the wait staff to the bartenders - all are great. We’ve loved every dish we have tried - especially the pork belly appetizer and filet entree! Definitely worth visiting.

This is one of our favorite date night places. Generally, we enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail with an appetizer before our main course. The farm to table food selection is superb. We always enjoy the ambiance. The wait staff is attentive and the manager’s attention to detail is top notch. If you haven’t tried SALT, it’s a must!

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!
