Amazing food, amazing service a wonderful experience
Our server Elise was amazing! Truly enjoyed our first time there.
Everything was great. Ambiance is wonderful and very interesting. Lobster special on Monday’s menu and cooked very well. 1lb lobster just not enough! Mignonette for oysters was delicious but overpowering. You could not distinguish the different types of oysters. Parking was great and very close and BB Wisconsin is right around the corners. Great place.
It was my first time there. I went for my Birthday. The food and service was excellent. I've already recommended this place to my family and friends. I'll definitely come back.
The waitress was AMAZING and very knowledgeable of the menu. The food was perfectly seasoned and the portions were just right. The cocktails were great too ! Perfect mix of alcohol and juice.
Everything was absolutely perfect! Food was terrific; service was excellent and the ambiance was outstanding. This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants and we will continue to recommend it to our friends.
They were having an off-night and definitely went above and beyond to take care of us for it. Will definitely try the place again...
Great spot for a date night! Try the poke/ceviche cart service. Delicious, especially the fish pate that comes with the bread. A must-try if you're in Norfolk.
All the food was under seasoned and needed salt. The calamari appetizer had a remoulade that was very good. The rockfish chowder was okay but it was really under seasoned and there was just a crazy amount of baby potatoes in it. Also, the menu says that there are lardons in it and there were no lardons on either order of the chowder. The honey creme brûlée custard was warm (weird) and had candied lemon on it that had no taste. As a side note the loud music from the bar made it difficult to hear each other speak.
Excellent. Our new favorite place. Pricey but high quality and delicious. Good service!
The entire mood of the night was wonderful, as was the food and the service. A great evening overall!
The ambiance was nice. Seating to others was alittle too close (could hear their conversations). Kitchen got our orders mixed up and sides were on the wrong plates. Ordered the fresh catch of the day and was a bit overcooked/dry. Our waitress was very good and thorough. Overall, the food didn't satisfy the price.
It’s a bit pricey but the food is so worth it
Perfect portions so my date and me were full but not uncomfortable. Presentation of food was very nice as well. It also came out pretty quickly so it is clear that the staff is on their toes. Worth every penny.
The meal was excellent! I would definitely eat at this location again. The desert is the only reason I didn’t give it full marks. It tasted like very heavy liquor and I could not stand it. Other than desert I really enjoyed this restaurant.
This was our first trip to Saltine and we will definitely return. Our service was outstanding; she made very good recommendations without trying to push us toward or away from anything. The food was terrific. And we could not have asked for a better environment for a date night.
Yes, with the caveat that they know it's a costly restaurant to eat at. It also depends on what you like. My wife had oysters...quite a lot to choose from...and she loved them. She also had a Pisco Sour which was also very good. I had the fish and chips. The fish itself was very good, but the breading was way too much. There was twice as much breading as there was fish. The fries, though, were delicious. The service was good, and even though it was Valentine's Day, the restaurant only had a few customers. I reserved through OpenTable and was told there were no reservations available that evening. This was the latest reservation available. I can only assume that restaurants provide so many slots for OpenTable, especially on holidays. Because of this, we could not order the Chef's Valentine's Special which was only for dinner. In the future, if I can't get the time I want via OpenTable, I'll call the restaurant directly.
Very happy with everything! Food was delicious, waitress was very helpful and continuously checked on us. A bit pricey but was worth it !
Great food and service! We went Monday night and the lobster specials were outstanding.
The food and server were awesome! I am a little surprised that with a reservation, we were put in a booth. Good thing we like each other.
Saltine was really good! The Ceviche was really amazing, I highly recommend it. I don't recommend the bronzed for their fresh fish of the day. It was too much seasoning all over it. The dessert was really good!!
Our waiter was fantastic. He offered great drink suggestions and explained the “bronzed” option for the rockfish. The food was amazing and the ambience was nice and quiet. We see why you’ve been listed #1 on Trip Advisor! So glad we chose to eat here of all the places in Norfolk.
Planned a special evening for a party of 6 - will not be forgotten soon. The staff and kitchen took very good care of us!
We loved Joanna! Everything was spectacular from the drinks to the dessert. The service was exceptional. We all left happy!
Our first visit and it was fantastic. Easily our favorite place to go now. Joanna was our server and she was outstanding. We will be back.
Enjoyed the best meal with good service and beautiful ambiance. Will be back!
Horrible food. Fish had been precooked. It was so dry. And cold. Server was absent after food served. Will never revisit.
Cocktails are truly outstanding. ( Way to go Mark! ) Food is pretty good though the ceviche is more "poke" than anything. $0.50 oysters during happy hour are a nice treat on Mondays. Great place for an after work drink and snack.
I have been telling my friends and colleagues about your establishment. I love it. I will be back!
The ambiance and overall experience was great. The food quality was pretty good. However, for the price that is charged the portions are small and not very filling. Good to impress your significant other with a classy environment. Not a place to have a satisfying and full meal without breaking the bank. Portions are just too small.
Great service, great drinks, great food, one of the entrees wasn't quite the right temperature but management made sure were taken of. Overall a good experience.
Visited first time on a busy weekend night. Our reservation was a little delayed but we enjoyed a drink at a cozy booth at the bar. Drinks were posted on an iPad. Prices were a little high for cocktails but reasonable wine prices. Service at the bar was timely. When we were seated for dinner, we were given a great booth near a window. Our server Wesley was awesome! We ordered the roasted oysters. Tasty, but extremely small for Lynnhaven Oysters. I ordered the Monk fish brazened. Ok, but too sweet for dish and it was served with roasted sweet potatoes & succotash. Not the squash as posted on menu. The sweet potatoes were yummy but it was too messy of a dish. My partner ordered the shrimp and grits which he enjoyed. Dessert was the best part of the evening. We ordered the "ORB". A huge decadent chocolate egg filled with chocolate & vanilla ice-cream,and strawberry sherbet. Decorated with assorted mango and raspberry sauces, pieces of cheesecake, brownies and chi rice crispies. Well worth the $18 price and feeds at least 4. Perfect for a celebration! Over all, the ambiance is great and lots of fresh seafood dishes. Would love to come back with a group.
Very friendly, high quality food, very much customer oriented
Although it was a little loud in the room where we were sitting no, it was not a deterrent. Appetizers and dinner was very nice. The creative dessert was absolutely a hit and highlight!
Always an enjoyable time..whether two or ten! The service is impeccable and the food beyond delicious. The fresh, pick your own, seafood options are just that....FRESH and delicious! Can not say enough wonderful things about Saltine!
The Bronzed Rockfish, and she crab soup were excellent. The calamari was a little tough. Drinks were also excellent, the Pisco Sour reminded us of Peru. Service was outstanding. We can't remember the servers name but all of the food servers were very knowledgeable and helpful. Valet service was good, but the check-out process was a little convoluted.
Went here for my 2 year Anniversary. We had happy hour first and loved that and the energy, then we got a private table that was much quieter and enjoyed our entrees. Our waitress was great!
Order mix up that was quickly corrected
Katie our waitress was outstanding. Knowledgeable of menu and selection items! Great experience! Food outstanding and overall was one of the best dining memories we will share!
