We went for Houston restaurant week, everything was delicious except the Picanha. I personally wouldn’t recommend it because it wasn’t as flavorful and they didn’t cook it to the level I specifically requested. Appetizers and desserts though were amazing
Respond from the owner: Although we're thrilled that you enjoyed our appetizers and desserts, we're very sorry to hear that your picanha was not prepared perfectly. If you ever encounter any issues with your meal while dining with us, please let your server know immediately so we can address your concern right away. We'd love another chance to serve you in the future. -Sal y Pimienta Kitchen Family.
Excellent place. My waiter noticed I got a happy birthday text and brought out my free creme brulee lol. It was great I got a half order of the big meat plate it was excellent and cooked how i like med rare. Had 2 of the signature drinks the spelling of the name escapes me but starts Cap. Has like mint or some kind of leaves in it. Very beautiful interior all wood. Lots of wine, I'm not a wine person. They even have restaurant week menu.
Respond from the owner: No birthday celebration is complete without some crème brûlée! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed everything from our signature drinks to our warm atmosphere. We can't wait to welcome you back for another perfectly prepared plate! -Sal y Pimienta Kitchen Family.
Got their Restaurant Weeks menu to go. Got corn and spinach empanadas. The corn one was delicious!Main was the picanha, which was salted and delicious and even the rice had good seasoning (I'm really desperate for well-prepared beef after 6 months of eating only at home).
The chaja as dessert was pretty good, but after the explosion of flavor in the first two courses it seemed a bit bland. I guess it could be a mellow end to the night to go on to the rest of my evening. Overall, excellent meal!
Respond from the owner: Erin, when you're craving a well-prepared meal at home, you can always count on us for delicious takeout! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed a couple of items from our restaurant week menu. We appreciate your feedback regarding our chaja, and we can't wait to serve you more picanha in the future! -Sal y Pimienta Kitchen Family.
My wife and I spent our anniversary there. We were given our own quiet room and a glass of champagne on arriving. The food was excellent and the staff perfectly attentive. Even the desert was personalized for us!. I'd recommend Sal y Pimienta to anyone. Great little restaurant!

2 months ago-Went to a business happy hour for food and drinks. They have great happy hour drink menu including great Cabernet for $6 /glass. The homemade potato chips are to die for. We ordered the Parrilla "Sal y Pimienta" this was too much food for 4 people. It was insanely delicious even the sweet breads were tender and full of taste. The Quad Leches was good but the crepes with rice pudding was like eating crepe creme brulet... Spectacular Dessert. We had a special cool espresso with a latin liqueur that was a fitting end to a beautiful service. Highly recommend!!
Respond from the owner: Kevin, we're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our happy hour! It sounds like you tried a ton of delicious dishes from our menu during your visit -- our parrilla "Sal y Pimienta" is always a great option if you're feeling hungry. We'd love to welcome you back soon for more delicious drinks and desserts! -Sal y Pimienta Kitchen Family.

This food is amazing. Portions huge. Santos was our server and so nice and attentive. Not lying when I say about a 1000 bottles of wine to choose from. Don’t miss it.

My boyfriend and I just left here and we have all good things to say about this place. We started with one ceviche for the appetizer, for the main course we each had Bife de Lomo "Uruguayo" (Filet Mignon) and for dessert one 4 leches. Everything was absolutely delicious! The quality of the food is really good! The staff was so nice and friendly.
Respond from the owner: Mari, we're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit! From our ceviche to our cuatro leches, it sounds like you found a bunch of delicious dishes on our menu. We can't wait to welcome you back for for more bife de lomo in the future! -Sal y Pimienta Kitchen Family.
