    Even though it has an older group of diners, on a busy Saturday night this place is rather noisy. Cocktails and mocktails are well crafted. We were waited on by Mary, who is empathetic and very knowledgeable. To me the appetizers are much more interesting than the main courses.

    Once again a wonderful dinner! The valet parking starts off the good mood, followed by delicious cocktails; Salum has the best Cosmopolitans in town! Then our favorite appetizer- baked elephant garlic with hot goat cheese- sublime! Our entrees were delicious as always, mine being the new offering of Moroccan Chicken. Throughout, our server, Rachel, was attentive to our every need- as always!

    Perfect night, perfect food, perfect everything from seating to leaving. The ambiance was nice, there was a nice crowd but you could hear each other talk. The food was exceptional from appetizers to entrees and dessert. Each dish was delicious and everyone enjoyed their entree. The wine selection was diverse with the perfect selection for our table of 5. The service was wonderful and we pretty much closed the place down. The website said valet parking was not available on week nights but that has changed and was a welcome sight as we handed over the car at the door. Would definitely recommend Salum to any one who asked.

    Great lunch spot and you get so much value for what you pay. I’ve been here for lunch numerous times and will continue to go however their prices for dinner greatly increase and so you have higher expectations as you could be paying 2-3x what you do for lunch. Even though we had a reservation for about 2 weeks in advance, they only had two tables available when we arrived for our reservation to choose from and they were definitely on least desirable location. 1 is right behind the host stand (I don’t think anyone would actually sit there) and the other is right behind it. So that was where we sat. It took 6 minutes before we were ever greeted. I used to work in the industry and that should never happen even on Friday night considering this is more business casual/ fine dining. It just felt like the service wasn’t very attentive, having to stop other servers to ask for things, etc. your serve should be anticipating your needs, not waiting till you get around to ask them. The food was really good though. My only complaint was that the Lobster Risotto definitely needs more seasoning or a more robust flavor profile. Adding salt helped a lot but my personal suggestion would be to enhance the flavors. The Lobster texture was rubbery which at a restaurant of this caliber, it shouldn’t be like that but it still tasted great. Overall, I would still give this place a 4/5 but would prefer a different server as the ones at lunch I’ve had have always been super attentive and an improvement on the Lobster Risotto.
