    We were disappointed that it was advertised to be a special restaurant with a dress code but that we seemed to be in the minority ofpeople who were dressed half way decently. Jeans, golf shorts etc did not seem to meet the dress code but many wore this attire and it was disappointing. I guess VA beach has no where that is actually upscale. In addition, we went there 2 nights and requested a server who was great on Friday but pathetic on Saturday when we were actually celebrating a special occasion and it was sad. Food was good but we felt like we were ignored on night 2 and we are not cheap tippers.

    Excellent but very expensive wine list for Virginia Beach (lot of very good hard to find wines but too many $300-$500 bottles and not enough good $100-$150 bottles). Crab bisque unusually acidic (maybe used sherry vinegar instead of sherry). Pear salad had overripe mushy pear. Ribeye cooked as ordered but just okay (need better meat quality). Batter too thick on fried lobster appetizer and underseasoned (Fleming's has an excellent version). Dessert sorbet assortment huge and excellent. Service very attentive and professional except for busboy who was kind of inexperienced. Had window table and ocean view okay but not exceptional. Certainly not up to Ruth Chris or even Chop House standards and not worth the $400 for 2 we paid.

    We were looking for a spot for our anniversary dinner before my husband deployed so we wanted it to be special. Salacia was perfect!!! The food was amazing and the steak just melts in your mouth, which says a lot coming from someone who rarely eats red meat. Our outside table was private and the view of the beach was wonderful! Service was great and though pricey, it was worth it! We had a great experience and will definitely go back!

    Celebrated 22nd anniversary in VA Beach. Last minute decision to go to Salacia. Make reservations in advance if you want a specific time. They fill up quickly. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our waiter Stephen was really good. Very attentive, good sense of humor yet gave us enough space for an intimate evening. Food was delicious. The crispy lobster is worth it. A little pricey, but if its a special occasion, worth it.

    This is a four star steak house, please understand, you must dress up and be ready to pay for the quality of the meal. For that special occasion, birthday, anniversary or even personal celebration Salacia provides the perfect ambiance with the touch of class. The perfect place for the memorable diner.

    Rack of lamb was warm with no taste. It consisted of 2 lamb chops. It did not equal to a rack. Asparagus was burnt. Requested a second glass of wine. It was never served. It was my birthday and I really thought since it was affliiated with the Hilton that it was going to be wonderful. It was terrible. Bill came to $87.00 for one person. I left hungry.

    I really enjoyed our dinner on the veranda. It was the perfect spot for our anniversary because it was very intimate and very comfortable. The food was excellent. We both had steaks that were perfectly prepared and I enjoyed my entree. The service was a little disappointing. I think the server was stretched between too many tables. I expected more attentiveness considering the price of the meal. I rank the noise level as moderate because the reservation desk is extremely noisy because it is part of the bar. On the veranda you are not far from the boardwalk so you can definitely hear everyone as they go by.

    My husband and I decided to try Salacia for a special occasion. We were extremely disappointed with the entire experience. We were seated aside of a couple that had been drinking for quite some time and were belligerent. The tables are so close that we could not hold a conversation over them. My glass of wine was flat. My filet was ordered as medium and it was served very well done. Our waiter was very nice and was the only positive aspect of the night to comment. When we want a nice dinner in the future, we are going back to Ruth's Chris.

    No more Kobe beef? Dress code not enforced? Servers didn't make recommendations based on experience with food on menu. Water glasses empty multiple times for many minutes. Basically a more fancy Outback with high prices and reservations. Used to be high end and worth it. Too bad.

    For the prices paid and reputation I was a bit disappointed in Salacia. My tomato mozzarella salad suffered from paper thin tomato slices that could be barely seen or tasted. The room seemed to be too much room and not enough decor. On the plus side my wife ordered the filet and it was the first time she has ever finished her steak in any upscale steakhouse we have visited, and we have visited plenty up and down the eastern seaboard. We vacation at VA Beach every summer, and this was our first visit to Salacia. With Chops right around the corner and Ruth's Chris a short drive away, I'll probably return to them before I try Salacia again.

    My wife and I stayed at the Hilton (Virginia Beach) to celebrate our anniversary. We had the pleasure of dining at Salacia and a sister restaurant and found the food and service to be superb! Steaks were delicious and our special requests were addressed professionally. The waitstaff was very attentive as well as management. I can't say enough great things about this team. Everyone works together, the atmosphere is friendly and exciting, the food was superb. We will definitely be back.

    And it failed to impress us. The service and atmosphere were excellent. There was just something about the food this time that made it mediocre. The bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp was good, but not special. I had the swordfish, my husband the cowboy cut rib eye. Both tasty, but not as special as we remembered from the first time. The desserts were excellent, the sorbet and bread pudding. For the money it should have had that extra touch that wasn't there. We spent about $260

    This restaurant which is tucked around the corner from the infamous Catch 31 in the Hilton Hotel at the Oceanfront, is one of Virginia Beaches best kept fine dining secrets! Executive Chef Brad Kelly has a kitchen regime like no other. His creations will tantalize even the most seasoned foodies. The dishes are like works of art with a taste that is unmatched in any other hotel restaurant at the Oceanfront in Virginia Beach. I highly recommend this foodie hot spot!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We have lived in the area for 15 years and we were looking for something a little special and a little quieter for our anniversary dinner. I had no recommendations for Salacia other than seeing signs for it while at Catch 31. But, I made the reservation online (easy peasy) and the restaurant called to confirm and gave us an option for outdoor/indoor seating. We had a clear explanation of the difference between indoor and outdoor seating and it was close enough to our actual reservation that we had a good guess on weather. We chose outside and it felt like we were the only ones there...top that off with a beautiful view and the most delish filet I've ever had...we are hooked!

    The service was terrible took about 15 minutes to get bread/appetizer. Then took roughly 45 minutes to receive our entree. There were several tables that received their food way ahead of us and had larger groups. The food was good, but not great. The dining area was trying to be cozy and romantic but just ended up feeling cramped. I would not recommend going here unless enjoy wasting money.

    You walk through the terrific noise of Ocean 31 with its exciting music and enthusiastic folks, past the cooks and busy waiters -- getting in their way, but they don't mind -- then go through the door to Salacia into silence and space and graciousness, a sweet view of the beach, and the best damn food you ever enjoyed. It's our idea of the perfect experience.

    We have been to Salacia 3 times now, first being recommended by a friend. Every time thus far has been absolutely amazing. The first time my boyfriend and I went was for our anniversary. My boyfriend went early to drop off roses and a card, and the management took complete care of everything. The roses and card were on the perfect table overlooking the ocean when we arrived. I would recommend this restaurant to any one in the Virginia Beach area. My boyfriend said it was the best steak he has ever had in his life.

He enjoyed it very much. The best steaks that I think we have ever had, they were very tender and had an awesome taste. The Desserts are to die for. We will definitely be back to visit in the future.
