Diner Reviews
  • "My daughter recently moved to Salem and we were looking for a nice dining experience. So we read a couple of the reviews and decided to book a reservation for a Saturday evening dinner. We were not disappointed. This chef knows what he is doing. An excellent blend of small plates and complete dinners. A fine wine list, although a buy the glass pour should be more than a small 3 ounce size. Pastas, entrees, specials and desserts were all first rate. Service staff was knowledgeable, courteous and efficient. We will be coming back and often."

  • "Food as usual was excellent. Tuna crudo was delicious. Pastas excellent. Problem is their wine service. Waitress had to ask 3 times "what we ordered again"... She then brought the bottle and started opening it without showing us the bottle first -- of course it was the wrong wine. The supertuscan we ordered was refrigerator (not "wine cellar") cold. Finally, the after dinner drink brought was also wrong, and the waitress was again oblivious to what we ordered - and obviously untrained. A shame for an otherwise good place. Btw, also misleading is what they call a "quartino". This is supposed to be a 1/4 of a liter or 1/3 of a bottle. Their quartino is simply a glass."

  • "Perhaps the best meal I've had there in several visits over the last few years. Had a dish of striped bass over roasted corn and tomatoes. Absolutely fabulous - succulent, juicy, flavorful, smoky. Really cooked to perfection. the veggies were very tasty and could have stood alone as a side dish or appetizer on their own. Our 'tizers of chick pea fritters and grilled calamari, and fried squash blossoms were flavorful and surprising. Dessert was our stand-by toffee cake and an apple-rhubarb tart. It was a truly memorable meal."

  • "Agnoloti melt in your mouth, brocolli rabe stimulate the taste buds and the stuffed zucchini flowers are mouthwateringly good. This is one of our favorite restaurants on the North Shore. We particularly like it because it has several vegetarian options."

  • "So enjoyed the dinner with out of state friends. Terrific food, great (and good looking) service and nice no-rush atmosphere."

  • "62 on the wharf offers an excellent venue for a private dinner or dinner in a group. Our server Ingrid was attentive and very professional. My wife and I had dinner there for our 45th anniversary and we received complimentary coffee, dessert, and apertif. We had a great evening not rushed, dinner took 3 hours, everything was how it should be in an unscale restaurant."

  • "Really appreciated the attention and help from staff re food allergies of one in our party"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was excellent, and we appreciated being seated in a somewhat private corner, but that meant our view was of the parking lot. By no means the restaurant's fault, but it was the only thing we didn't like about our experience. Attentive service, food was delicious and well-paced (again, appreciated) and were I in Salem again I would happily return."

  • "Usually a great experience but an off night. Service was slow and food wasn't prepared as asked."

  • "The food was incredible, the place itself was wonderful! The staff is considerate and helpful, by no means do they rush you."

  • "We enjoyed the whole experience at 62. Service throughout the evening was attentive without being intrusive. Food choices were interesting, with some unique and some traditional options. We shared 3 pasta dishes, and all were woth trying. I favored the papardelle with lobster, my husband the night's special pasta, short rib ravioli. Though not familiar with Salem restaurants, we're guessing that this is among the best."

  • "Great menu with a variety of food prepared well. Not a cookie cutter menu. Give it a try - I don't think you will be disappointed. We will definitely be back. We had excellent service, as well - attentive but not in your face."

  • "Great food, great service, great place. The squash blossoms and toffee pudding are truly gems!"

  • "I have been going to this restaurant for 5 years now and, amazingly enough, it is always a pleasant surprise! Dishes are masterfully prepared! The menu has often new things to offer that along with a few specials make our visit a new dining experience every time! And, if you get to meet Tony, the chef owner, your night will be even more special! It is also a great place for a quick bite at the bar. Jeremy, the bar tender, will satisfy any drink request!"

  • "Kinda pricey menu and wine list. Very close seating. So we found the table next to us listening to our conversation. I had the $26 ravioli. Never again. Sorry 62!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Wonderfully fresh oysters and perfectly prepared pasta, fish, steak, and asparagus. Great selection of wines as well. Very nice service."

  • "A really enjoyable dinner again at 62. Will definitely keep them on the short list of local options. Interesting apps, great housemade pastas and sauces, and well-prepared entrees. Not to mention a good wine selection. One thing I miss though is the mortadella app from the early days - but I can see how that would be labor intensive and add to overall costs - perhaps as an occasional special app? In any case, keep up the good work 62 - see you again!"

  • "We had only small plates at 62, but all of them were delicious: succulent grilled calamari, tasty fried Brussels sprouts, nice pork belly, and wonderful garganelli pasta with duck. Very good wines by the glass, good bread, attentive service -- all in all, a place to return to."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We had not been to 62 Restaurant in a few years and we were completely wowed by our experience on Friday evening! Delicious cocktails. Innovative starters. Yummy homemade pasta. Beautifully executed entrees. Our entire party was so pleased -- including grandparents and two elementary school aged kids (who ordered small plates of pasta off the menu which were perfect for them). "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "This is not your normal Italian restaurant with spaghetti and meatballs. It instead has delicious dishes like braised pork belly, grilled calamari, and also the best handmade pastas. "

  • "The food and service was good. We went on a Thursday night, so pretty slow, very quiet. Spectacular views right in Historic Salem Harbor. A little hard too find."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We went here for our anniversary celebration, and as usual the food was excellent. This is one of the best restaurants on the Northshore. I had the duck and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the duck garganelli which was fantastic. We also indulged in the new prosecco on tap! What a treat. We will be back again for sure!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "To preface, I went here for their Mother's Day prix fixe menu, though I believe most of the options were on the current menu as well. It was definitely a little chaotic because of this due to a lot of kids being there for a nice meal with mom. I don't think anyone here would ever turn you away with a kid here, but it didn't seem like the type of place that normally be an obviously family spot. The pacing of the courses definitely had some lagging moments, but everything came out so fresh & beyond delicious, that it was worth the slightly longer wait. I can't say enough about how great the food is here. Everything on the menu was in season, too. The wait staff were all kind & helpful. I have already recommended it to friends!"

  • "Excellent as always. Interesting menu. Mother's Day lunch superb. "

  • "We went for our anniversary, we asked to not be rushed and for a quite table. The evening was perfect, we got a nice table and the server did not rush us at all. The fresh pasta is amazing and the food complexity is a perfect blend so that you taste the food but you have a wonderful mix of flavors, Kudos to the Chef. "
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I had a good meal at 62 but it wasn't outstanding. I probably wouldn't go back due to the cost of the meal. If it were less expensive, I would be more apt to recommend it and return. Being on the wharf I was hoping for a nice view but it's not overlooking the ocean."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "It was my anniversary and wanted to try a new place for dinner outside of Boston with sane quality and feel of Boston. I searched open table for nearby restaurants and cane across 62. It was exactly what we were looking fur. It was low lit, amazing food, amazing service and reasonably priced.Will definitely be my go-to place from now on!!"

  • "We loved this place and would highly recommend it. The ambience was very nice, the food ranged from very good to wonderful. We particularly enjoyed out two appetizers, the ricotta fritters and the calamari, and the pasta dish with duck and cherries, which was amazing! the waitstaff were all fantastic! In particular I'd like to give a shoutout to our main waitress, Sarah, who was wonderful (maybe the best waitress we've ever had). She helped make our dining experience there a memorable one. We will definitely go back,"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The small plates and appetizers are all made fresh to order with vibrant spices and flavors. The wine list is the best around with something for everyone. Cocktails are excellent with many original concoctions. Entrees so flavorful with the scallops and flank steak outstanding choices! The ambiance is romantic and relaxing. A wonderful night out!"

  • "62 is always on our list for dining when in the area. Small plater and specials make for interesting dining. Usually eat at the bar and Jeremy is always attentive."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Very quiet on an off-season Wednesday night. Low ceilings, dark woods, interesting art on the walls...more a place for wives and lovers than families or sports buddies. Servers are young and learning their skills. The mussel soup was deliciously spiced. I enjoyed that the mussels were already shelled. My wife had the duck with hand rolled pasta. The duck was wonderful. The Pasta slightly al dente for her taste or mine. Wine list reasonably, beers somewhat limited. A nice place to dine."

  • "We returned to 62 Restaurant and Wine Bar after a previously delicious meal over a year ago, and let me say -- this experience was just a fine, if not finer than the last! The excellent menu is refined, and the chef's preperations and presentations first-class! It happened to be my birthday, and this is where I chose to return! It also was Salem Restaurant Weekend, so our meal was drawn from their top-notch sampling menu. We were treated to divine flavors, and left very satisfied."
