Our table wasn't ready at the time of our reservation but there were a few seats in the bar area available, just not at the bar. I had the half size of the Pan-roasted NC Chicken. It was delicious but the chicken was dry. They had the Seared Faroe Island Salmon, which was nice. If I come back, it may... More

My mother-in-law, sister-in-law and I had lunch at the Blue Apron the Saturday after Thanksgiving. They had both been there before, but as I am from Indiana, I had not. The atmosphere was quite charming and cozy with an exposed brick wall and large windows looking out on Salem's quaint Main Street. My mom-in-law had an Autumn salad she really... More

Whenever possible we plan our trips from PA to NC so that we can stop at this tiny but excellent restaurant. The menu is always innovative and delicious. I particularly love that you can order half portions of most everything on the menu. This visit my husband and I both had the lamb shank as our main course---and it may... More

I don't know about you, but Salem Virginia is not my idea of a culinary mecca. This place is, however, really quite good. Nice atmosphere; good service; interesting menu options. It ain't cheap for the area, but it is local and inspired.

The Blue Apron offers a fine dining experience. The food is absolutely delicious, but the portions are a tad small compared to chain restaurants. They serve the amount of food we really should be eating! Bring plenty money.

The menu is always delightful and I finally decided on the scallops-delish and an ample portion. Had a hiccup with the order but our server insisted on making it right! Had yummy squash gazpacho in the interim...they made this business lunch turn out right!

We are fortunate to have eaten here many times. Each time we visit we have "the best meal ever"------until our next visit. Had the gazpacho, panzenella salad, grouper and tenderloin. Very unique in that they offer 2 or even 3 sizes of each dish, allowing you to try several. Service is always wonderful. We are so very lucky to have... More

On those very rare nights when the kids are away, our first instinct is Blue Apron. It isn't cheap by any means but the flavors are awesome. Love the idea of half plates so that you can get two meals as it is tough to decide. This is the best restaurant in Salem.

When we go back to the Roanoke area to visit family we have to have a meal at the Blue Apron. I consider it an expensive restaurant, but the food is high quality and prepared with skill and care. Service is friendly and professional. We always leave relaxed and happy.
