The food is always delicious and well prepared and they have professional wait staff who are friendly and know their stuff. Very happy to see nothing has changed with the recent changes. With all the new places in Salem, The Grapevine is still my favorite5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in SalemI used to come to the grapevine all the time when I lived in Salem. On a recent trip back for the day, we were saddened and worried to discover that it had changed owners. However, the food is just as good as ever! And the wine list was excellent. They are in the middle of redoing their outside patio - I can't wait to see it.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful interior update!The NEW Grapevine (redone inside and out) is fantastic. We've been going there for years and have watched it through many seasons. The new owners have done a wonderful job with the new interior (fresh, contemporary, uncomplicated, better lit, and better arranged). My scallops were superb! And the wait staff? The best ever! I highly recommend this place for all kinds of occasions. Go there! Now!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a special occasionWe celebrated a special occasion at Grapevine on a rather slow Monday evening, but the food was superb.

It was a very comfortable atmosphere with moderate noise level and plenty of room. Our bartender and server was very knowledgeable and offered suggestions, wine pairings, etc. The menu had changed since we were last here so there were plenty of new things to try. We enjoyed our first course most, oyster stew and a gnocchi special, which were both excellent. Main courses of flat iron steak and fresh cod were also very good.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe last time I was at theThe last time I was at the Grapevine, the acoustics in the front dining room were horrible. I was happy to see that the dining room has since been renovated and the level of quietness has improved dramatically. I'll be back, and soon!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Grapevine has been a favoriteThe Grapevine has been a favorite for 20 years. We were pleasantly surprised to find out it was now on the Open Table list. On arrival we noted some small changes from the restuarant such as the entry from a different door. After a look at the menu it was apparent that the restuarant was under new ownership. That is always scary but in this case it worked well. The menu has a decided "Northern Mediterranean" and American influence. My dining partner swooned over a delicious oyster stew and I thoroughly enjoyed an artichoke salad. Her Tagliatelle entre was well presented and excellent. My cod was a work of art and delicious. For dessert we shared an ample chocolate mousse. The service was excellent and prices fair. Definitely a go-back spot12/22/2012 12:00:00 AMHave been there before butHave been there before but they seemed disorganized this time. It was not crowded so there was no reason.
Last time was much better food and serice wise. Will try one more time at some point to see if they do better. Good value for the food and wine though during restaurant week. Wines were excellent though as was the person in charge of the wine choices.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
