We chose to celebrate our anniversary at Salt. We had never been there as we are new to the area. We wanted a fine dining restaurant so we looked on TripAdvisor and Google. Salt was one option and the food looked interesting. The service was good but the restaurant was so warm it was hard to enjoy our food and cocktails. This restaurant is very pricey so I would expect a better experience. Maybe turn the A/C on a few hours before opening ? The food was just OK. Nothing amazing. Overall not a great experience and I would not recommend.

did not expect to find such a quality restaurant in mc allen. great scallops, wonderful quail knots, excellent service. we stopped here on the way from san antonio to south padre. it helps break up the long trip and only adds a little mileage. the valley should be proud.

Everything was great! Been here before but had been a while. Were seated promtly with reservation. Had the black and blue cocktail, which was delicious! Cannot stir away from the pork belly appetizer, always amazing! We had the steak, mac and cheese, and ravioli, all great! Service was also wonderful!

Probably the best restaurant in El Valle. Outstanding food, great service and excellent wine/drink selection. If this restraurant were in Austin, Dallas or Houston you’d need a reservation a week in advance. The staff is well informed and very helpful.

Although this has been one of my favorite restaurants for years, I had a very bad experience the other night due to the server. He was not friendly .He did not ask for our dinner orders until 30-45 minutes after our appetizers came out. Never discussed the specials. When the salt board was brought out, he did not describe what it entailed. We had a bottle of wine from the bar area, but once our food arrived , we were never asked if we needed more wine when we were obviously done with our bottle. Finally got a hold of the waiter and ordered a bottle of champagne, which we never received. My husband asked for a side of honey and it was not until the 4th time that he received it (when our food was already boxed to go). Didn’t even order dessert because our experience at that point was so bad . I usually love having appetizers, meal, and dessert there so that was a shame. When he brought our checks, I mentioned the honey and champagne. He did not apologize and actually said I had not ordered the bottle of champagne from him, then realized I had. He did not apologize or ask if I still wanted the bottle. He just brought our checks. By far, the worst service we have had there. Extremely disappointed.

The service was excellent. The food quality was good, however, the prices were a bit high. For example, as a New Yorker I would not pay $65 for New York strip.

Always excellent. The fried chicken is my go to plate. Its not your gramma’s fried chicken. Boneless pieces. One white one dark. Homemade mashed potatoes and a grilled jalapeño to change things up a bit. Get a side order of max & cheese, it’s divine and sized to share with friends. My wife normally gets the pork chop, which is huge and tasty, or the pork ribs (ditto).

Deserts are all excellently sized and delicious. Cocktails are made exquisite. Try the margarita or the Black & blue.

The menu was missing healthier entrée options. I also felt they were trying to be too unique. They need at least one or two safety options for people that don't like to venture out of the norm too much. I.e. a burger, a sandwich, a hearty salad, and a soup. All Entrees seemed a bit overpriced as well.
