We visited the Adriatic for a late dinner on a Saturday night and were whisked immediately to a secluded booth in the back room in the furthest back corner so we could talk-bonus from the start. Hubby was beside himself that they had a rare IPA on tap and my cucumber martini (yes, really) was out of this world. I... More

Located in downtown Salem, they offer a rich selection of foods (including a decent amount of veggie options). The staff were friendly and on warmer days, they have it opened up so you can enjoy the nice weather.

We really enjoyed eating at this restaurant. It is very attractive and even has outdoor dining in good weather. The menu is nicely varied. We had appetizers and shared an entree which was plenty of food for us both. We agreed that Adriatic is a place we'd return to on our next trip. Good service!!

Reasonably priced with indoor/outdoor seating. We were immediately greeted as we entered and made to feel very welcome. I had the grilled chicken salad which was light on the dressing and large portion of chicken breast. It was very tasty. My sisters had Zuchinni Blossoms w/goat cheese and Bolognese. Both were also excellent however, there could have been more goat... More

Small and quiet restaurant in Salem serving mostly Italian food. I ordered the arugula salad and the mixed seafood grill; my wife had the lobster tail and eggplant parmesan. For dessert, she had the chocolate torte. All dishes were good. The grill was a little disappointing but still ok. The waitress was attentive.

Really great bolonese. Great service from Ash, but my hubby listed birthday on reservation. It was acknowledged by Ash. She even wrote happy birthday wishes on paper tablecloth BUT it's small money for a good restaurant to give a dessert.

We ate here during restraunt week and ordered from the fixed course menu. The Faithful Navigator had the lobster corn and scallion fritters with a nice sriracha aioli dipping sauce and I had the shrimp in a marinara sauce with kalmata olives and feta. She had the roasted cod with a lobster saffron sauce with a garlic spinach and roasted... More

My husband and I did takeout at the Adriatic recently and the food was great. I do have 2 comments: the food is pricey and the portions are small.

The staff is very friendly, the wine selection is excellent. The pizza, dessert and apps are delicious. We have gone three times in the last month. Highly recommend.

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
