Salacia Prime Seafood and Steaks Ratings and Reviews
I had been wanting to try Salacia for some time and found it lived up to all the raves written about it. The atmosphere and the service were very good, but what I will return for is the excellence of the beef. The salad was good and the veggies were "OK." But what sets this restaurant apart for me was the heavenly, perfectly cooked and very well-presented beef. The many claims of being "pricey" are right on. If price was not an object for me, I would dine there at least twice a week (if not every night). While the limits of my wallet won't make it a weekly or even monthly event, I will definitely return for a special occasion and when I want to experience what is likely the best steak in town.
This was a romantic place to eat especially for a cozy special occasion. I loved the decor and the ambiance was amazing. Place settings were gorgeous as well as the entire scene, the food was awesome and the virtual ipad drink menu added a very modern flair. My only complaint was that the staff, although amazing, were a little slow making us wait for our check as we waited a good while after eating just sitting around to pay. Otherwise this place gets five stars from me.....
I was very happy with the meal I chose from the Restaurant week menu except maybe the dessert . The cobbler was dry and nothing special about the rice pudding. Unfortunately my husband wasn't thrilled with his meal. He said he will stick to Steak next time.
I love the excellent service and the friendliness of the waiters. We will definitely return.
Salacia has always been very good...maybe because it was a Monday they were off, way off.
The desert ordered was incredibly bad! Not sure what happened, someone forgot something...maybe sugar? if they had tried it it would not have been served.
The filet as always was the best and the potatoes were also amazing!
I was disappointed in my visit. The restaurant was loud, too many waiters coming to the table to remove items. Very disruptive. I wanted potatoes instead of sweet potatoes and no flexibility to change. It was my birthday and I lose my appetite. Potatoes over seasoned as well as the crab cakes. The mood was totally ruined. Not to mention the language barrier we experienced with the waiter. I heard great things about the restaurant but enjoyed the ambience at the bar and the energy more so than the restaurant.
Love this place. The only not so thrilling part was the hostess the worked February 15, 2017 at 6:10 pm did not greet (no hi, hello ill be with you in a second, nothing)us until she placed two phone calls, then she said reservation, follow me..overall great evening maitre d and server was awesome.
My main course was ruined so it ruined my valentines. Beef Wellington was not made right. Burned dough which shoul've been lightly brown puff pantry. There was no filling in it. Sent that back to receive the worse cut of meat, it was all fat and hard to cut. Also it was raw. Needless to say, I didn't eat it. I did call the manager who apologized. Said he'll take care of me if I come back but don't think I will.
I took my date here for their Birthday. It was very private and quiet. Finding a place with fine dining that is worth the price is hard to come by and salacia surely met my expectations and then some. Our service was impeccable and our food was outstanding. Everything was prepared and served perfectly. I have zero complaints and I would surely recommend this restaurant to a friend. Thank you for the amazing experience.
We had an amazing meal and experience at Salacia. The service was outstanding and we were never left wanting anything...water glasses were kept full, we were checked on consistently, and our food came to our table hot and perfectly prepared. It was our first visit, but it won't be our last!
Outstanding dinning and romantic flair, service was impeccable and the epitome of the fine dinning experience (Thanks Errol!). I had the Japanese A5 Wagyu with lobster tail. I've had Kobe beef on a few occasions but the A5 Wagyu was a steak experience all it's own with my taste buds going into flavor overload as each slice literally melted on my tongue (Thanks Tyler!). It was our 32nd anniversary and all the Staff made us feel so welcomed, almost like royalty. Thank you all for a memorable time.
Great dinner. Oysters neptune must be on your appetizer list, very good. We tried the Kabocha, arugula and caesar salads, all very good. The whole snapper was a standout, excellent preparation, the filet was perfectly cooked and the scallops were good but would have been better if they were served hot instead of lukewarm, probably a kitchen timing error. The triple chocolate cake was also a hit. Overall a very good dinner, Our waiter Michael was very attentive. Will definitely return.
My husband and I celebrated his 65th birthday dining at Salacia. We were in VA Beach for a wedding. I started out with the tomato and cucumber salad. Salacia is situated behind Catch 31, in the Hilton Hotel. The atmosphere was like a private dining room away from the noise and bustle of Catch 31.
The salad I started with, was beautifully presented on the plate with the cucumber diced and the tomatoes quartered. The tomatoes were cold, which is not the way I serve them, but the temperature did not detract from the fine taste and freshness of the vegetables. I had crab cakes, which were delicious and made with jumbo crab meat. My husband had an 8oz waygu steak and he was very pleased. The meat was cooked to his specifications and was quite tasty and tender.
The wine list was quite good and diverse.
The desserts were grand. I had the pumpkin pie, which was rich and creamy tasting. My husband had the creme broule with pear. He enjoyed the creme broule, but tried to pawn the pear off on me. Oh well, it was his birthday...
The service was professional, unhurried, and friendly. We were dining during the "off season," so the restaurant was not fully seated and it was quiet. Salacia is perfect for two to four diners. The tables appeared to be two or four-tops. We had a great meal and experience and would love to go back. Thank you to the staff and servers at Salacia for a lovely evening.
The special occasionwas our 11 year anniversary and I couldn'thave picked a more elligant setting. The timing between appetizers and dinner were well timed, the waiters service was highly professional , his demeanor/attitude was upbeat and he excelled the mood. Our meals were cooked to perfection, the isn't any restaurant's in Virginia that can compete with how well you cook and prepare your stakes. This was a wonderful experience. Ten star out of a rating of five.
My husband and I visited Salacia this weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This is not our first time, and we had just as good a dining experience as our other visits. The food and drink were wonderful, and our server was exceptional. He took great care (even though he was quite busy) to make certain that we were enjoying our meal and had everything we needed. We will definitely plan another trip to Salacia in the future.
Salacia offers private dining on the oceanfront. The menu is phenomenal, as were our steaks. The lemon curd with homemade marshmallows was decadent. Sitting outside in a private alcove while watching the moon rise over the ocean was incredible. The prices are high but the service, food, and ambiance warrant the price.
Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food was medicore at best. The pureed baby food/squash under the coffee crusted steak was disgusting. I was very disappointed considering this was a 4 to 5 star restaurant. First time and last time. I would not recommend the restaurant for the price.
