“Great Place for Special Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We eat out about six times a week but have Salum on our short list for "Special occasion" dinners. It is a very nice place that you would not expect from looking at it. It is small and in a strip center. Do not be fooled it is wonderful. We have been there before but just recently went there for my birthday. Same awesome service. Same awesome meal. I would highly recommend this place.

“Good food, but at a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We want because I craved some elaborate contemporary food, and I wasn't disappointed. The Foie gras as an appetizer was excellent, but kind of small to share. The Lamb was fantastic, the sauce and vegetables combined extremely well. The snapper was very tasty, but the bisque (sauce) was rather dull and did not add anything to the plate. Attention: the plates are small!

The waiter was average and kept bumping my wife's chair over and over. The service was quick and efective, though. The restaurant is small and dark with now streetview. But the kitchen and bar is right there so at least there is something to look at.

Drawback? The price. Waaaaay too pricy for what you get. The tab for two ends over 100 bucks easily, and I thinks it is not worth that much. For 25% lower price I'd go there again; not so sure that I may with the actual pricing.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I've been here for business lunches and for Valentine's Day dinner (thanks to my thoughtful husband). No matter the occasion, the food and the staff are just the best - I agree with earlier reviewers that say that both the food and service are exceptional. 100% recommend!

“Five star cuisine, six star staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

A truly wonderful restaurant with exceptional attention to food and service - comfortable and classy. Food is always expertly prepared, always interesting, and always delicious. Abraham Salum has created his own take on food, and it is uniquely wonderful. Service is the right combination of graciousness, friendliness, and professionalism without being intrusive. The menu changes monthly, although a few specialties of the house always remain on the list. The mussels are spectacular! And the prices are reasonable. There are many good restaurants in Dallas, but only a very few great restaurants, and this one is on the top of the list.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

The scallops were fantastic! Our wait staff provided just the right amount of service without harrassing us but were always there to help when we needed something. She was very attentive to where we were from. Not sure if she looked up on the internet to see where our University was located but the only identifier was our clothing yet she made a point to know where that was located and wish us a safe trip back to our specific town.
