Contemporary Mexican

Welcome to Salomé, an experience that defines our culture and heritage through past, present and future culinary traditions. Our concept is built on the idea of preserving traditional flavors, techniques, and meticulously presenting dishes with a modern hand. We are challenging our culinary teams to redefine Mexican Cuisine as our region knows it, while keeping an eye on sustainability and sourcing from responsible growers, ranchers and farmers.
Our bar has the largest and most eclectic array of Agave Spirits our region has seen in recent years. Our cocktails are hand crafted and feature fresh squeezed juices from our valley’s finest citrus and produce. Our wine list celebrates Mexican and Mexican–American wine makers that are making their impression on the wine world by expressing their talent and that of generations of viticulturists that shaped the landscape of California, Baja and beyond.
We invite you to be transported and experience the nostalgic flavors of México.

The staff was very friendly and the food did not take long to come out. It was a perfect setting for me to purpose to my now fiancé. They made the night very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend.

                                                              The ambiance is fabulous. We sat outside and listened to a nice musician play. Drinks were good. Best item was the ribeye steak. The fish tacos were dry and even tough. A lot of the other items are unique cuisine. It was a good experience.

                                                              Overall we had a good time except when we got there for our reservation the hostess sat us outside in the sun...i noticed there were other tables available so I had to ask her to move us. She was able to move us to another table. I'm not sure her reasoning for sitting us in the sun in the first place.

I highly recommend this place for anyone celebrating an evening with a loved one or just want a quiet relaxing dinner.

                                                              The food was absolutely outstanding! Did you know the chef beat Bobby Flay? It’s true but we learned that after ordering! The restaurant would do super well anywhere and I’m jealous that it’s in the valley. Wish it was in Austin! We had the oysters in line cilantro vinaigrette. Great job. Six to an order. Then we had gulf shrimp on these masa wafers with black beans. Tremendous. We split the conchinita de pibil which was as good as any I’ve had including Fonda San Miguel in Austin. We also split the roasted lamb chops. Fall off the bone tender. There was a great spicy sauce with it that really wasn’t needed but totally raised the level another notch or two. Bam! For desert the red velvet cake is as rich as silk. That’s not my favorite desert but holy cow. I had the coconut mousse which just wouldn’t stop. Over the top good. Can’t say enough about the food. Cocktails were good too! My only comment to the owners would be that it was such a unique dining experience because everything was so excellent a little bit more assistance from the staff in guiding us through evening would be appreciated. (Like ordering a vegetable) Also, slow down the pace of food by just a touch. Give us a little more time to enjoy and savor! Thanks to everyone there and can’t wait for my next trip to the valley. To locals: this is a jewel and enjoy!
