SALT Ratings and Reviews
Salt is one of our favorite restaurants ...
Salt is one of our favorite restaurants in the McAllen area and we go fairly regularly. However this experience was a little under. We thought perhaps the big event the next day drained the energy/resources of the staff, but the next day was an important celebration for the restaurant. While the service was still attentive, it felt a little off--I really can't stay what it might have been but the feeling.
The New York Steak was great, we liked the ravoli, and the fried chicken was good. The Cioppino soup was muddy and not very good; the calamari was rubbery. I wouldn't recommend it. I have had great, bright cioppino in the past and this wasn't it. The sides were also good as were the drinks. We enjoyed the pork belly appetizer but didn't enjoy the quail knots with the risotto underneath--the quail was good, but the risotto didn't add to the dish.
But we will go again because we know this was just an off night.

They knocked their first brunch out of the park. Food was innovative, nicely presented and tasted fresh and tasty. We appreciate that Chef Larry Delgado sources locally whenever possible. His approach to food and customer service has made us big fans of both of his restaurants. We look forward to the next brunch!

The food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The attention of the charge of assigning the tables to get to the restaurant and waiter in its recommendations to ask what the menu. What there is to be careful with the noise in the environment inside because sometimes you do not listen very well to people who are on the table when you are making conversation. This is one of the resturantes I like McAllen, Texas. It is true that when you go to this restaurant guaranteed that you will eat exquisite, both food and drinks. For me it is one of the best resturants in town.

Great food, nice wine list. Way too loud for romantic date. We had a reservation but had to wait 15 min for a table. Have been here before without a reservation with same wait time. No benefit found for reservation.
SALT New American Table is a fairly new ...
SALT New American Table is a fairly new upscale addition to McAllen's restaurant scene. Owned and operated by the owners of House.Wine. The thematic focus of SALT is locally sourced fresh organic ingredients. In addition, SALT's chef offers interesting menu items not available anywhere else in McAllen (perhaps in the Valley). During our recent visit, for example, we passed on blowfish tails in favor of shrimp. If you're looking for a lovely evening that's a change of pace, explore the online menu for SALT. We had an early reservation, but by the time we left at 8:30PM on a Friday, there were no open tables. It's a popular place. And it's our go-to restaurant for special occasions.

My husband, son (student at the Culinary Institute of America), and I (food blogger, recipe developer) enjoyed our meal at Salt so much! The ingredients are so fresh, the menu is creative, and the service is outstanding and professional. We loved the selection of small plates as this is our favorite way to dine. I highly recommend Salt! It's probably not the best choice for a romantic dinner as it's got a pretty noisy vibe and very open seating with kitchen in view.

The food is top notch from the appetizer (shrimp), sides (unbelievable Mac n cheese), dessert (almond cake), and of course a flawlessly cooked NY strip. But what set this restaurant apart from any other and made it an unforgettable dining experience was the service. The wait staff is friendly and on top of their game. The real treat though is to sit at the Chef's bar and watch Chef Greg in action. He will even give you some tips and explain how's he making certain things. Do not miss out on this great restaurant!

I come here every time I work in the RGV. I've said it before, this is one of my favorite places in all of Texas. The food and service is amazing. This time I tried the pork chop for the first time. Amazing. I don't know what they do to it, but it is unlike any pork chop I've ever had. The quail knots and pork belly appetizers are outstanding as well. Great cocktails too. We came back again our second night in town just for some Salty Dogs and quail knots. Can't wait to go back!

Was really looking forward to trying this restaurant for the first time. We went for a date night but literally had to yell so loud just to talk to one another. When the waitress came and had to yell to take our order we decided to leave before we even ordered. We also had a problem with the menu....mostly "unclean" things to eat...meaning no kosher. Probably 90% of the menu was off limits. Steak was outrageous at $60. Will not be going back.
There were three of us in the party and ...
There were three of us in the party and we were seated at a table to the side of the main room, where we could see everything but we were not in a direct travel path. Although we had one main server, we were served by several to keep the service flowing nicely. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu items and freely made suggestions upon our professed likes. Unlike some "upscale" restaurants that give you a morsel of food in the middle of a decorated plate, our portions were quite adequate and we even had some to "take home" in a "green" paper container, rather than styrofoam. We were pleased with the variety of items on the menu and that much was local or at least from Texas (meat from Broken Arrow Ranch up in Hill Country, which had been featured on Andrew Zimmern's show or wild-caught shrimp from the Gulf). There was a nice mixture of familiar and "exotic" menu items and, as we all ordered something different, we had the opportunity to sample a number of dishes. We were intrigued by the cocktail list, many made with freshly sqeezed juices which added a freshness to the taste. We were very pleased with the evening, our server(s), and the food which was wonderful and tastefully plated.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we had a very special romantic dinner. My husband is a very picky eater and he was very pleased with the selection and I am a foodie and we both had a wonderful experience. Will return very soon, totally enjoyed our night at SALT.
Excellent food and great service from the hosts and waiters! Their positive energy and knowledge of food made all the difference.
The sriracha shrimp, heirloom and the duck was delicious and different than the typical food around town. The farm to market table concept is apparent in every bite. Delicious!
I look forward to visiting SALT again, especially on another special occasion. Well worth dining here again!
