Absolutely wonderful experience! We were hesitant on going due to it being a bit pricey but it was 100% worth it. The staff was extremely friendly. Comfortable environment to have a nice date night. It was a little loud but not to the point that it was an annoyance. Would recommend highly.

The staff was very nice and very attentive. Staff was very watchful of low drinks and refilled water immediately. We were celebrating a birthday, birthday boy got a menu that was personalized with "Happy Birthday" on it, nice little touch. A bit too noisy. Food was delicious.

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.

The food was delicious at SALT. The fried chicken was delicious and so moist. We also had the saracha shrimp which had just the right about of kick to it. The cocktails were delicious and tasted so fresh.

The food was really good. I had the Margret De Canard which was tasty, buttery; however, I would rather have liked it slightly fried on the sides - that would have made my taste buds explode! My wife had the pork ribs which were also quite tasty. The appetizer - bacon wrapped mollejas - was out of this world!
Not sure if the parking on the south side of the restaurant is all you have, but it left something to be desired.
The wait staff were on their game - really, really sharp!
Other than that, we'll be back for the steaks :)

Had dinner anniversary here. Service was great. Food and drink were even better. Place is small but very intimate. Chefs bar is a great spot to eat and watch the cuisine being created. A little over priced but it was worth it for an anniversary dinner.

Great service staff every time I come here. They ran late on my reservation but the cute bar with the great all around selection of cocktails, wines and spirits made up for it. I would recommend seating outside for a more quiet romantic feel.

This was by far the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The staff was superb, very knowledgeable on the menu and drink pairings. Food came out in a timely manner. The quality of the food is what stands out the most to me. Mostly locally sourced ingredients of the best quality, prepared mostly in an open kitchen. SALT is a cozy, but upscale restaurant. It was certainly not something I expected to find in McAllen, but is the reason I would come back to McAllen for pleasure rather than business.

Sorry but it was nothing special about this place. And service quality doesn’t deserve the value of the price. There are much better fine dining restaurant in the valley and they are cheaper. I used live nyc, Miami Beach and even overthere, there are high quality service and food less pricey from here

The goat cheese ice cream was gone before I could taste, but the cream brûlée & beignets were great. Who can resist a donut?! Thanks for another great night.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we felt at home. The gracious and friendly hostess apologized that they were running slightly behind schedule and offered us seats at the Captain's Table, which is a counter next to the kitchen. Similar to eating at the bar but you watch the cooks prepare the food instead of the bartender prepare the drinks. Interesting idea but we declined and ordered drinks at the real bar. Less than 10 minutes later, we were at our table ready to order.

We had three appetizers - Sriracha Shrimp, Poke and Sweet Breads - all of which were excellent. For entrees, my daughter ordered the duck, my wife ordered the scallops and I had the squid ink pasta. All the dishes were excellent, a highly creative and well thought out fusion of Asian, Mexican and Euro-American flavors. Surprisingly, all of us rated the homemade bucatini as our favorite. (They spell it "buccatini" for some reason.) We finished our meal with Baked Alaska (!) and Creme Brulee. Wow!

Combined with perfect lighting and acoustics, the crisp, clean ambience, great service, original, fresh and perfectly prepared food and the large and reasonably priced wine list more than justifies the bill. SALT is well worth your time and money.
