Great atmosphere and service
Food good. Poached eggs over cooked but ok
Not enough hollandaise sauce but if I had asked they would have gotten me more
Grilled oysters awesome
Brunch menu fun with plenty to choose from
We would go back
Food took 2 hours and was just OK, spent a ridiculous amount of money on a substandard dinner. Asked to speak to a manager, they never came. We will never return, they didn’t even try to make it right.
Great food and service.
Staff was on point, never had to wait or ask for anything. Food was delicious I had the omelette and wife had the chicken and waffles. Next time, chicken and waffles!!!! The waffles were amazing, omelette was good but omg chicken and waffles! Reasonable prices!
It is rare that I write a negative review, unless it's really bad. Mostly, the reviews I write are very positive.
We had reservations, that were made almost 3 weeks in advance. It took over 45 minutes to seat us. They were apologetic and gave us complementary appetizers, which were served timely, were delicious and we appreciated. I didn't feel the complimentary appetizers were necessary (at that time, but glad they did after the remainder of our experience).
It took over an hour to get our food, spotty on drink refills and took a long time to get our bill. I was chalking the slow service up to possibly being understaffed due to COVID-19. However, we noticed people who were seated after us, receiving their food before us. We were continually left waiting throughout the night, looking for service. Also, my meal was cold and one side dish ordered was not what we ordered. At that time we gave up.
We all were very disappointed, because we were celebrating a lifetime event. The person we celebrated, did not feel special.
We were playing a show at The Norva and decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. Service and food were outstanding!
My husband and I drove an hour to have dinner here after getting a babysitter to watch our newborn child. We booked a table outside to ensure we felt safe with the Delta Variant especially with our baby who is completely unprotected. It had rained earlier in the day but was not raining and hadn’t been for at least an hour.
Upon arrival we were taken to an inside table and sat right in between 2 other tables. We asked if there was a table more isolated from people and were given the option to sit on the other side of the same table.
We left without eating disappointed we’d wasted our time and money.
Saltine was great! The food was incredible, the restaurant was clean and comfortable. The only negative was that the server spoke, softly , quickly, and from behind a mask so he was hard to understand. This is a great spot!
Appetizers were delicious, main courses were average, drinks and desserts listed on the online menu were not available in the restaurant.
The food and service was outstanding. Market prices are a little inflated on certain items.
Great food but our waitress kept coming to the table every 3 minutes, it felt a little rushed. It was 6:30 so I can’t say that she was about to get off work or we were there late. I will be back but if she is the server, I can’t do it…
Great food and service! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner
Exquisite food, very expensive it worth it for a once in a while treat!
We dined at Saltine last March (2021), and had an excellent experience….food was fabulous, service excellent and so we decided to take our son there for dinner to celebrate him coming off of a 9 month deployment. This time…service very slow, inattentive server, did not take drink orders first…you get better than this at any chain restaurant! Food came out, cold sides, which manager fortunately came around to check on us because server did not! Quality of food prep not up to par with the price point at all! Also, music turned up way too loud, and just not the intimate, quality experience we were going for! We will not be back!!
Great place had a great time. My my wife and i enjoyed having are anniversary there. Will be going back soon.
Took over 2 hours to finish our dinner. We got our food 50 minutes after we ordered. No updates from our waitress and we had to get a manager. He comped our wine. We got dessert and just terrible service. Other tables were taking as long and getting frustrated. Everything took so long. Food was good but the experience wasn’t what we wanted so do not recommend.
Celebrating my niece’s engagement. Very expensive but food was good. Waiter was great.
Two birthday celebrations!
The place to go for great local seafood! Fun atmosphere, attentive staff and interesting menu options. We had the deluxe crab cakes and fresh oysters-2 must haves!
Saltine offers outdoor seating near the street. It is a typical "city" setting, so don't expect privacy. The shrimp and grits we good, with large high-quality shrimp, but over-salted for my taste. The ($2.00) brunch special mimosas were inconsistent: One round mostly champagne, the next mostly orange juice. Our server, Carleek, was a bright spot: Friendly and attentive, without being intrusive.
Great restaurant. We had a large party which increased in size just before we arrived. They were very accommodating and got us all seated without. hitch which was much appreciated. Host staff and servers were excellent. One small critique, you need to salt/season the risotto.
Foods and service was top notch.
Great dirty martini and great servers who recommended local fare and chatted the night away with us. Crane cakes were delicious!
Wrong vegetables were served. I was told there was a mixup in the kitchen. This was rectified. Coffee was not available for our dessert because their machine was not working.
Great food, Great service. I will come again.
Sides of the day were all starches—succotash and roasted sweet potatoes. Mac and cheese on children’s menu appeared to be from a box.
I love this place however I went Sunday specifically for the Orb dessert and they didn’t have it… it’s was my daughter’s birthday and my only request. The Blackberry oysters however were amazing never had them but I will order them again.
Service was very good, but the food was disappointing. Soft- shell crab was described as "sauteed, to keep its integrity," but was actually heavily battered and tasted deep-fried. Side dishes were just ok At Saltine prices, we expected more.
The food was good, although the half sandwich was somewhat small and did not include much fish
Service was very good. Our waiter was very friendly, cordial and professional.
The bartender was inattentive and impresonable. He failed to as customers for their orders or check back appropriately even though the restaurant and bar was not crowded. He recommended different sides, but them failed to mention he was going to upcharge on the bill. The spouts were good with an ample bacon garnish. The crab cakes were substandard for the area. Prices are inflated for quality and service.
Had a wonderful dinner last night. Food, service & atmosphere were terrific!
Great food, GREAT atmosphere. The she crab soup and oysters are delicious
Our waiter Tanner was amazing and very friendly. We will be back again !
1st time dining here for Brunch. It did not disappoint. Food was delicious, served fresh, hot and in a timely manner. Can't wait to dine here again!
Fantastic seafood restaurant. Very upscale and great ambiance. Service was exceptional. I would highly recommend this experience to locals and those visiting the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area.
Very good food and excellent service. Nice atmosphere with a moderate noise level. A bit pricey, but it is a hotel restaurant. The listing in Open Table shows $$ signs (under $30, but should be changed to $$$, as most entrees are over $30.
Excellent Meal and Service…She Crab Soup, 4 Shrimp with Remoulade were the Appetizers…Crab Cakes & Shrimp & Grits were the Entrees… Cheesecake for Dessert
Our outstanding lunch was only surpassed by our thoughtful and attentive server, Anna. On a hot summer day, this restaurant was a crisp cool respite. We enjoyed Aperol Spritzes, and lobster sandwiches with she crab soup. We weren't planning to have dessert, but we were so glad we did. The carrot cake was the best carrot cake we have had in 30 years!
Went for our anniversary. We have hone for other anniversaries and also Valentines Day. We have never been disappointed with the service, food, ambiance and their willingness to pay attention to your reservation request. Do yourself a favor and try them out. They validate the first 2 hours of parking. Entrance from their parking to the hotel.
