Best Mediterranean in Salem, hands down. The staff is friendly, they have a great wine list, and the food is amazing, I wish I could eat there everyday.

The experience eating here was simply superb. A huge selection of house wines, and superb choices in bottles. Full cocktail bar with a touch of real old world Europe in Salem. Attentive and detailed service made the evening very, very memorable. Menu choices are excellent, and are truly European (vs. Italo-American) in their execution, flavor and ingredients. Real Prosciutto di... More

Lots of good to excellent restaurants in Salem but The Adriatic tops them all! The owner and all of the staff take great care to make sure you feel welcome whether you are there with a group having a big dinner or sitting at the bar. On that note Lindsey is always on her A game behind the bar!

We went at 5:00 pm for dinner, sat outside and listened to the band in the town square, from the drinks to the entree to the dessert it was delicious, there was a little confusion between the waiter and the hostess not telling him he had a table waiting, but he totally made up for that minor detail with amazing...

I state that I was surprised because I looked at the menu on line and it looked like one of those California type restaurants with all the odd ingredients. I had the filet and everything was marvelous delicious and nicely presented. The other 3 people all had the seared scallop special. All loved everything. 4 entrees with 8 drinks came... More

We had an enjoyable small business meeting at the restaurant on a week night. They have a very comfortable small function room. The service was good. All seemed pleased with their meals. I had the eggplant and shrimp appetizer which was delicious. My swordfish entree was also quite good though the serving was a little small. The tiramisu was ok.... More

If you love atmosphere and dining which offers a feel of Adriatic/Medditeranean, look no further, this is the place. Genuine hospitality, service, is completed by the fabulous menu and wine list. The food is amazing. I enjoy sitting outside on the patio or by the open doors in warmer weather, the bar is fun and bartenders great as well in... More

We sat outside under the shade of a big umbrella, enjoying a combination of greek and italian food in unusual combinations that was very tasty. Service was excellent and our server refilled water and brought more bread very promptly

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.
