The food and service were great. Only reason not rated 5 stars was it was hot and we were sweating. Told waiter about it and was told it’s always like that during the summer. They need to upgrade the AC system to keep the place cooler.

This was my first time dining here - I highly recommend. I was dining alone as I was in town for business. I sat at the bar. Tanya was my server and she was super personable and energetic. I had two appetizers- spinach salad and Siracha shrimp. Both were amazing. I will definitely return

Kitchen did great, food Prep was perfect. Waiter was a bit overly suggestive, but led us to good choices. Loved our food and Dessert was very good.
I would like to see better Fish and Seafood choices, the name Salt kinda hints towards Seafood. Overall an exceptional celebration, the Happy Birthday Greeting within the menu was a great surprise!

Excellent service on both of our visits. The grilled pear salad was a stand-out dish. We also tried the crispy pork shank (twice), the fried chicken, and the scallops. Everything we have tried has been very good. Nice atmosphere - open kitchen keeps the vibe active without being frantic or noisy.

The service by our waitress was outstanding. But our week ahead reservation request for sugar free dessert (health reasons) was dismissed. I even called 2 days ahead to be sure about the dessert and the staff member who I spoke with said she would notify chef. So no dessert for our anniversary dinner at the restaurant. The staff didn’t seem to know we had even requested sugar free dessert.

Food wasn’t the best especially at the price they charge. It was stuff I could’ve made at home, fried chicken tasted no different than KFC original recipe, and the shrimp tacos were over priced for 8 measly shrimps. You’re paying for the aesthetic look of the place not the quality of the food. Service was good though and drinks were good.

We made a reservation about a hour prior to our set dinner time with no trouble. We were seated immediately. Our server was well versed on the menu. The food was delicious, along with the wine recommended by our server. We did not leave room for dessert. Will be going back soon.

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.
