Salacia Prime Seafood and Steaks Ratings and Reviews
I had no idea a dress code was in place requiring a collared shirt for men. My son, visiting from CT, did not have a collared shirt on. After a brief discussion with the hostess and then the manager, we were allowed in as an exception. I greatly appreciated that!
I loved thiis restaurant until 2 days sago. I treated my friend and was shocked and disappointed. Why??? Noisy children on both sides of us (children aren't supposed to be there.). Got our order wrong. Long long long waits between seeing our waiter. We actually had to track down the waiter for our check. Terrible service. Waffle House has better service.
This restaurant is one of the BEST in the area! I really enjoyed my time there. Was seated at one of the outside booths with a view of the boardwalk, water etc. Had a Miami Beach resort feel, that was both romantic and comfortable! The food was excellent and will definitely return!!!!!!
Overall we enjoyed our meal. I would recommend the red snapper and lamb chops. The broccoli wasn't soft enough nor seasoned well. We sent the grits back after only taking one bit because they lacked seasoning and were rather hard. The weather was pleasant, so we enjoyed sitting outside and watching people on the boardwalk, but beware of the flies! We spent half the meal swatting flies away from our food.
We absolutely loved this restaurant! We had the lobster tempura, the surf and turf, and the scallops and each was absolutely magnificent. Paired with one of the Malbec wines, it was the perfect anniversary place. There may have been a few things that aren't normally considered "fine dining," but honestly it didn't matter because everything from the service, the outdoor seating, the delicious food, and the dessert was just lovely!
The night started out frustrating. We waited 25 min for outside seating which we reserved on Open Table. The manager came out to explain that the party was taking longer than expected (I would too. You should enjoy your food and company you're with). Because we were hungry, we were not happy. We decided to sit inside and the manager gave us a window table for four (that was nice). My wife and then began to have the best dining experience we have had outside of NYC!! The waiter was knowledge, attentive and responsive. The food was delicious! The tempura lobster appetizer had a hint of sauce that was sweet & tangy and had me wanting more lobster. Our steaks melted in our mouths!! It was cooked a perfect medium rare and came out sizzling hot! (They learned Ruth's Chris secret!) The dessert was beignets. They were tasty. They could have been a little lighter in texture.
I saved the best for last, the wine! This is were our waiter won all of his points. He recommended a 2008 Evening Land "Summum" Seven Springs Vineyard!!! This made my wife smile all night!! It was delicious and light.
I will be coming back here soon! (And I love 4 hours away).
Salicia was a remarkable experience - after a week on the Eastern seaboard expecting to be wowed by fresh seafood offerings - Salicia finally came through. The seafood was magnificantly fresh and perfectly cooked and the presentation the essence of creative summer dining. The only thing that could be improved is the wine list (especially since we were in Virginia with the magnificence of Jefferson wines missing on the menu)
Food was AMAZING!! Beautiful setting! Open air overlooking beach walk right on Virginia Beach. Romantic and yummy. And my husband and I could actually talk and hear eachother without all the ambient noise. The Hamachi tuna appetizer was just unreal. Served thinly sliced on an ice cold piece of slate with a delicious Asian slaw on top. It was crazy good. My husband and I both had steaks that were above perfection. LOVED this restaurant. Staff very attentive. And just perfect.
Wanted to try your outdoor dining, having observed it from the boardwalk for years. The seating and and atmosphere was perfect. But, this is not "fine" dining as advertised. Enjoyed it, but you are missing the mark you are advertising as having. Most people wouldn't notice. For instance, have both white and black napkins, and pay attention to what your patrons are wearing. Have your wait staff pay more attention to timing. We waited a very, very long time for the entree to appear after the salad. Medium rare ordered beef was prepared between medium and medium well. The baked potato was a day old (yes, I know the difference). When the meal was finished, we waited too long again to look at desert (which we had). Bottom line? For $320, all in dinner for 2, I've had better for $200. But, again, the environment was excellent. Would only recommend this place, in season, for someone that would appreciate the outdoor seating. Would never use the indoor seating of Salacia....what a dark, small room. Nothing special about it at all.
This was my second visit, and was in honor of my brother's recent wedding reception held at the hotel the day before. The food is always great, and the service is good, though a little slow.
My only real complaint would be that you have to walk through the (very noisy) seafood restaurant to get there, and any time the door is opened, the noise sneaks in.
A fabulous time!! My husband and I went to celebrate our courthouse wedding that day so it was perfect for a celebration! We were sat in private dining outside with a lovely view of the beach for awesome people watching. Food was delicious and service was lovely.
Service was amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure our dinner was special. The food was extraordinary. I had the surf and turf and the lobster was the best I've ever had in my life. Great selection of wine. Beautiful view, from the private dining room, of the oceanfront. My wife and I had a wonderful time.
We love to have dinner here when we are in town. We were married on the military beach Oct 4, 2013. We had our first dinner here as husband and wife. Tonight we had the same fabulous waiter we had on our wedding day. The service is the best I have ever had.
Salacia never disappoints!!! This visit, for pre-Mother's Day dinner was no exception. My wife and I enjoyed the filet mignon; both steaks were absolutely perfectly cooked to our individual orders. The quality of the beef was exceptional. For an appetizer-for-2, we had the Grand Plateau of chilled seafood. It was incredible, and it's presentation was impressive as well. Side dishes here are generally enough to serve 4, so the overall meal was so filling that we had no room for dessert. My compliments to the chef and to our server, whose name (I believe) was Daniel.
