62 Restaurant & Wine Bar
A great restaurantHands down the best upscale restaurant in Salem. A great place for a celebration. It made our anniversary dinner very special.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousAlways fantastic at 62 - we love it here! The fried artichokes were a table favorite, as well as the raviolo.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Every TimeMy husband and I have been to the 62 several times and every time we are impressed all over again. The food is SO good! My favorite is the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese - fresh pasta made daily - really, there is nothing better. The Bolognese is incredible - "lick the plate" incredible. One of my husband's favorites is the Garganelli - Red wine braised duck, cherries, kale - I can't even describe how delicious this dish is! I started with crostini - with a ricotta mix and roasted figs - I am now a LOVER of roasted figs! There really is nothing they make that isn't incredible!
I recommend this restaurant to everyone I know - it's THAT good!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in SalemWhile this spot is among the restaurants at the waterfront, I had not noticed it before. I will definitely be returning. The food was original and outstanding. The appetizer arroncini were crisp and flavorful. The pasta with braised duck (duck is one of my favorites) was delicious, and the tiramisu was authentic and delicious (not the cakey stuff you often get, but real lady fingers smothered in sweet marscapone and expresso powder) - a great ending to a memorable meal. Service was prompt and polite, but not intrusive. Not overpriced. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

The food was the most interesting, tasty and varied that we have found in many a moon. The service was attentive and helpful. We were delighted.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best service!The 62 is never disappointing. The wait staff are the best. We don't go to often; but when we do they recognize us as having had been there before and are so attentive. The food is the best (and I am hard to please). We usually go to dinner early and always have a great table near a window.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur New Favorite when in Salem, MA62 has become a must for us when in Salem, unfortunately not as often as I'd like it to be.

The Portuguese style cod fish cakes were scrumptious. The arugula salad is always a favorite the flavors are so much more than the description. The "birthday girl " and I opted for the halibut it was cooked to perfection and served fresh and delicious. My husband ordered the sirloin and it was flavorful and cooked as ordered . For dessert we ordered the bombolini, toffee pudding and gelato again nothing but outstanding reviews. The perfect ending to an incredible meal! I would be remiss if I did not mention the service our waitperson Christina B. was attentive, efficient and pleasant only adding to a delightful evening.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA little OasisSalem is filled with touristy gift shops, flocks of people and the wonderful PEM Museum. Down near the water, there is a little restaurant that allows you to escape the noise and the tourists. The food is delicious, presented well and the menu will challenge your knowledge of ingredients and their combinations. Two words: Just go.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerCame here for our anniversary (which I noted on the reservation). Seated us immediately. Service was excellent. The server explained the menu and specials in detail. We got two apps, two pasta dishes and dessert. Everything was wonderful. They even brought us two complimentary glasses of Prosecco for our anniversary. We will definitely be back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSalem Gem!The food was simply outstanding at 62 Restaurant!

Tony' menus remain creative. His food preparation and presentation continue to be wonderful. The wait staff is professional and knowledgable. Although we dine at 62 throughout the year, their Mother's Day brunch has become an annual favorite.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LOVE 62!Chef Tony's house made cured meats are to die for. Fresh made pasta and sauces are top notch. The hubby and I never find ourselves someplace else, for fear that we may not enjoy our meal as much! Staff is all warm and friendly--obviously well fed!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSuburban Above Average SurpriseMade res for special occasion birthday dinner traded one suburb for another an hour away found this gem via google reviews and must say excellent food, outstanding actually and I would recommend to anyone.
Seated right away, very attentive server, creative drinks and busy atmosphere. We started with fried artichoke and olives. exceptionally good tasting. For entrees, I had a unique take on linguini (they served it with square spaghetti) and white clams and she the duck ziti - which she wouldn't shut up about ( in a good way).
The bread pudding and espresso was also excellent. Go here. We made the trip from the south shore (everything is so different up here) and were so glad we did.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful timeWe loved 62 Restaurant and Wine Bar. This was our first time dining here. Our food was excellent. We ordered the Salami plate for an appetizer. These were house cured meats that were so good. For dinner, I ordered the Arugula Salad and a pasta dish. Both were wonderful. My fiance ordered the rabbit which was heavenly. Of note, on open table I put it was for a birthday. Our waitress had made a note of that a head of time and brought out dessert with a candle for my Fiance. We will make sure to eat here again when in town.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDeeeeliciousCame here with a party of four. Enjoyed having a drink in the nice bar area. There was little turnover so we could not get a seat but there was standing room (shared with the servers passing by to the bar tables.) The decor is modern but not too and there was just enough background noise (music and diners) that it was easy to hear conversation. Hostess and waitress were very accommodating and we had no problem tailoring a dish for food allergies. Food was delicious. Salmon and duck pasta were the standout entrees. Will absolutely go again when a classy night is desired.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTook our daughter for herTook our daughter for her 26th birthday.

It is an affordable way to sample various restaurants, particularly those that are on the pricier side. The wine was great. The service was outstanding. For appetizers, we had the arancini, meatballs and chick pea fritters. The fritters were a little spicy and the arancini was so-so... but the meatballs rocked. We had the tagliarini... it was very good, but needed a little seasoning. The warm toffee pudding for dessert was fantastic...yum, yum, yum. Soon, I think I will sit in the bar, have a martini and a salad... and the warm toffee pudding. And I will definitely be back for restaurant week. My favorite Salem restaurant.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic meal - as always!!!Fantastic meal - as always!!! especially impressive because it was restaurant week in salem and 62 really did a stand up job on all counts!!!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough we have been to 62Although we have been to 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar several times, we have never had anything but a great experience and this week's was no different.
