  • "All our meals took over an hour to get and we're cold. My English muffin under my pached eggs Benedict was so HARD I couldn't cut it! (Like it had been put in the microwave) drinks were in skinny champagne glasses and expensive! Coffee was cold and served an old-fashioned little teacups. They kept refreshing coffee but it was cold wasn't hot! And we had reservations but yet we couldn't even get in the restaurant they weren't ready to open! Really??"

  • "After a lovely day at the Peabody Essex Museum we had a delightful dinner at the Hawthorne Hotel. The ambience was very soothing and relaxing with wonderful piano accompaniment to a great meal of perfectly cooked haddock in a wonderful broth with broccoli-rabe garnish."

  • "Our group of six enjoyed a delicious brunch at Nathaniel's after visiting the Peabody Essex Museum. The service was excellent and we were not rushed at all. The atmosphere makes it very easy to relax, have a conversation, enjoy brunch."

  • "Nice little place, quiet with great atmosphere - live piano music (and he even comes around to take requests!), excellent service and tasty food. A little pricey, but not incredibly so (dinner for 2 under 60 with drinks). Romantic, comfortable and tasty - i recommend."

  • "My husband and I had a romantic dinner at Nathaniel's a few years ago during a stay in Salem. We decided to return on this trip and we were not disappointed. We started off the evening with a cocktail in The Tavern and then moved to the dining room. We even got the same table we had on the last trip! The ambiance in both places is charming and reminiscent of the way restaurants used to be back in the day. Lots of dark, warm woodwork and indirect lighting. The food was excellent and we both appreciated the option of having a smaller entree portion. The staff was charming and attentive without being obtrusive. We look forward to our next trip to Salem and dinner at Nathaniel's."

  • "My husband & I went to the Hawthrone Hotel for our 4 year anniversary/ Halloween breakfast & it was delicious. On the hotels website, it says the resturant attire was "business casual". When we showed up, there were people in hoodies & sweatpants having breakfast. I guess the business casual applies just for dinner maybe? But that was our only confusion. Our breakfast was delicious and I would love to visit again."

  • "When making the reservation, I requested a window or wall table and explained we were celebrating a special birthday. When we arrived, we were told all the window tables were reserved (by people like us?) and we were escorted to the worst table in the house, right in the middle of the room! We were in the restaurant for 1 1/2 hours and the table we requested was given to a party, without a reservation, just as we were leaving! Service was slow; we had to have our server located when we were ready to order. The food was unremarkable. An order of seafood chowder consisted of a bowl of thick fishy-tasting cream without a recognizable piece of seafood in it. A $31.00 order of Shrimp and Scallop Sara arrived with over-grilled seafood."

  • "The food and service was exceptional. From the chef's complimentary appetizer to the salads and main course, all of the food was delicious. The ginger bread ice cream sandwich was phenomenal. My fiance got the chocolate roulade, and she said it was so rich and extremely delicious. What a great place to celebrate our engagement!"

  • "Brunch for 8 was very good - getting there was problematic but that is always a risk - Salem, MA in Oct (before Halloween) can be VERY busy with witches etc. Even with the traffic the food was worth it."
