Truly One of the Best

Without question The Adriatic is one of the best restaurants in and out of the Northshore area. It's gorgeous inside; romantic & flattering lighting, everything is very clean and aesthetically pleasing, and the management and staff will go well out of their way to accommodate you in any way... read more

Each time I go to the Adriatic I wonder why people think it's so good. The menu is ok, the food quality is good but pretty expensive for what you see on the plate. We went recently, sat in the bar near the door (cold), ordered cocktails, an app and entrees. The drinks were good, nothing special. The app priced... More

I've been coming here for almost three years now and can honestly say I have never had a disappointing experience. Service and food are executed as consitently and as well as any restaurant in Salem. The warm and inviting ambiance perfectly complements and completes the overall dining experience . Although I love the flatbreads, the bolognese is off the page.... More

My daughter and I ate here while on a mini-vacation. The restaurant was recommended to us, and my daughter was in the mood for pasta, so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! The restaurant is lovely....great warm, inviting decor. We were shown to a table near the window, which offered a nice view. We ordered... More

Walking into the Adriatic, you are welcomed by a nice looking bar off to the right that was full of people enjoying a drink. We came at about 8:30 on a Friday night, without a reservation, and did not have to wait for a table, as there were plenty open. We were seated along the back of the room, where... More

We've been here a couple of times and this has become our go-to place to eat. My husband gets the mussels and I explore a bit more. We have loved every single thing. Highly recommended!

Not a pizza joint as implied by the pictures, although they do have some. Actually an upscale dinner choice with excellent food. My swordfish was as good as the best seafood restaurant in NYC. Service was terrific. We were a group of five with some serious food allergies which were handled well.

Only my third visit, even though I live a stones throw away. There are lots of great restaurants in Salem but this is definitely my new favorite. The Arugula Salad is excellent. The Roasted Cod was the best piece of Cod I have ever had! Sometimes cod that is not breaded does not have lots of flavor. Not the case... More

The restaurant is conveintly located in the tourist vicinity of Salem however the open area of the restaurant does not make for a quiet dining experience, the prices are high for the portions that are delivered and service was slow to take orders, refill drinks, etc. If this was a crowed day during the tourist of Salem I could forgive...
