During our recent stay in Salem we had an early dinner at the Adriatic and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The menu isn't large but has plenty of options. My wife and I were both very pleased with our meals. My wife's lamb was perfectly cooked and quite flavorful. But the star of the meal was the eggplant... More

Whether we've come for lunch or dinner, we are always delighted with the fine meals served here. The ambiance is terrific, the staff is well trained and attentive and the meal preparation always impeccable. The combination of flavors using local ingredients coupled with a Mediterranean influence is really great. We look forward to going to PEM so that we have... More

We were just walking from our room at The Salem Inn when we discovered the Adriatic. The aroma from the Resturant was what brought us in. We are so happy we decided to have dinner here. Everything was awesome! The local Cod was probably the best I have eaten anywhere and the lemon tart was the best ever! The service... More

We had a lovely dinner with great service. A very nice and reasonably priced wine list goes with the delicious food.

Had dinner on a Sunday late afternoon. Was seated promptly as there were several available tables. Our waiter arrived quickly and poured waters and took our drink orders. That's when our visit went off the rails. The bar service was incredibly slow. After the drinks he came back to take our dinner order. Problem number 2. Apparently the beet salad... More

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
