Great restaurant. Was surprised that my meal last night was below par from my previous experiences there. Not by much, but when you have high expectations, you tend to be more critical.

My family's second visit to Salt, first was 5 years ago. Both times we visited to celebrate my mother's birthday. My brother and I both live in Dallas and were visiting McAllen for the holidays. Based on that initial visit, revisiting Salt was a no-brainer. The food, drinks and especially the service did not disappoint.

The first person to interact with is the hostess. It is unfortunate that the hostess is not at par with the rest of the team in the restaurant. Funny she did not allow us to sit at a different table (available) stating that the reservations are assigned specific tables. I was curious and questioned it further. The Manager was fast in saying that is not the case and offered apologies. No problem. I was just thinking the world was going bizarre and crazier, this covid has to have some side effects

Service was sub-par. One lady had to get up from her table and get her own wine that had been sitting at the bar for several minutes.

Overall, just OK experience.

Value: Leaves a bit more to be desired. 2/5

Food: As much as I wanted to rave about the food, it was a 2/5. I can only rate what we got.

Grilled Pear Salad - just no..

Salmon - was the saving grace

Duck - It was 2 sticks of duck formed to start a campfire. The duck was ok taste-wise but i think it was a tad over since it was a bit dry. But I am not an expert and it was my first time to eat duck so i could totally be wrong. I just know that meat should be a bit pinkish all around. Mine was a tad pinkish in the middle and white-ish mostly around. Sauce was good but needed more of it.

Ribeye - Asparagus (just no), potato tasted better than everything else on that plate I'd say. We are big on steak, so this was a total letdown. It was bland. Ordered Med Rare and that got maybe rarer than a rare or just about rare I'd say. Hard to chew on raw meat would be the best visual.. Long story short on the steak, took it home, reseasoned, and re-fired. Daughter finally loved it.

Dessert - It was like a brownie for base, minty icecream on top of it hidden in a layer of torched swirled icing. I would say one would make you seriously diabetic by the end of it. That is, IF, you would be able to even finish all of it by yourself. The chocolate brownie tasted good but I wasnt quite the fan of the minty ice cream and the icing at all. I would say 1 piece of that can be shared by 4 people. They can at least probably try to get that all down and still have an ok experience with the dessert. I would have had just the chocolate brownie and called it a night.

Service: 5/5. Crew was neat, pleasant and smiling, very helpful.

Ambience: Place looked and felt nice but too noisy for a sort of fine dining experience. Mixed loud big groups inside so..get a table outside. Better feels and more romantic.

Coming back? 0 to Maybe. 2nd chance, if so.
Recommend? Still, coz they might have a different experience. They can write their own review.

I was excited to try this place out since reservations are required to attend. As soon as I walked in I noticed the ambient calm environment with excellent lightning. I can’t recall my server’s name either than he’s one of the original servers who started out there. He recommend a bottle of wine from Oregon that was amazing. He was very attentive and had great manners. He also threw in a joke here and there to make the night go smooth. I ordered the ribeye steak which was delicious (medium) with the Brussels sprouts for vegetables as a side. The steak came with potatoes and asparagus. I’m not a Brussels sprouts fan but the way they were cooked made me one! I love them. The mac and cheese was also outstanding as well as the Salmon that my significant other ordered. Before we knew it the bottle of wine was gone and I sure wished we had another 😅 The food is definitely worth the price and treating out a special someone for a great dinner and time. I’ll definitely be back.

I came to Texas from Wisconsin to take care of my mum who is battling cancer and had just had a stroke and we’ve been planning to try this restaurant for the last few months. They accommodated us beautifully despite the wheelchair and her unpredictable appetite. Food was 5 star as well as service. The young man who was the host helped me wheel my mother back to the car and load up her wheelchair. I couldn’t have asked for more. This is probably one of our last girls dinner and they made us feel so spoiled. I can’t wait to go back.

Quantity of food is not worth the price, but its taste was pretty good. It’s more worth it for their drinks since food menu is limited. There was also confusion trying to close me out with my check that threw me off. I forgot the more expensive high end restaurants are, the less food you receive.

I am vegan and the chef was very accommodating - I was given options for plant based substitutions. I chose a Buddha Bowl with green curry. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. I loved the food and the drinks were so good! This was my first time at SALT and I would definitely dine there again.
