    The food was absolutely amazing, but due to the noise level it was hard to carry on a conversation with my date. The service was decent but the waiter seemed distracted and it was an hour and fifteen minutes until he had taken our dinner order.

    This is the best meal I’ve had in McAllen since moving here from Austin this summer, and I can’t wait to go back. The shrimp appetizer was delicious and the scallops were amazing. I also tasted the grilled pear salad, my husband’s ahi and the Mac and cheese, and all were excellent as well. We enjoyed a few pitchers of the Cucumber sip as the night wore on and nibbled the crème brûlée we didn’t need but thoroughly enjoyed. Our server was super knowledgeable, friendly and always around when we needed him. We really had a great evening. Everything was outstanding and we look forward to returning.

    We ordered the salt chips, mac and cheese, duck, and ribeye. The salt chips were room temp, which was fine. But so was the mac and cheese. It tasted good still, just wasn't fresh. The ribeye was okay, not very tender and very salty. The kale with the duck was also salty, but the duck itself was fine, if not as hot as would have been expected. Our food came out fairly quickly though. Service was okay. Our server was polite enough. Still, we ran out of water more consistently than we had it, considering our dishes were salty. We did not stay for dessert.

    Our waitress was absolutely amazing. Very talkative and attentive as well. My wife and I had the steaks which were cooked to perfection and were absolutely delicious as well. The atmosphere of the place was a lot smaller than I thought it would be as this was the first time I had eaten there however, it was extremely comfortable. We could hold a conversation without much ambient noise. We will definitely be back.

    For the location this is a nice restaurant and feeling and mood are all great. The menu appears to be carefully picked to offer at least one good option for your desired taste in protein. With that said the menu was limited and on the higher end of value. Not sure the quality of the food met the price point even though taste was above average. My party ordered the steak and scallops for me the scallops were tasty, the plate consisted of 3 silver dollar sized scallops for 38.

    Coming back after a few days hunting up north last night meal of the trip. Food was excellent service continued to improve. Initially server was in a hurry to get us to order. Then he realized we were in no hurry so he gave us some time and service improved. We ended up there for21/2 hours. Great restaurant

    The steaks ordered were incorrect though the waiter thought it was wrong and brought it to the table anyway without saying anything. The food is good but very pricey. I’ve had better steaks for much less price.

    I love SALT; been there several times. Love the food, the ambiance, the drinks. Overall great. But for reason last night, the service wasn’t as great as previous visits. Our server seemed distracted by patrons sitting at the kitchen bar and really took along time to attend to us.
