    Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly by the hostess. She took our drink order and returned a short time later to serve us. She served us in a manner rarely seen or experienced these days. We have always enjoyed our dining experience at Chiras.

    Not our normal experience at Chira which made it even more disappointing. Food was cold from soup to dinner. We had a party of 5 and everyone had the same comment about their dinner. Our bread pudding was hard and burnt.

    Hands down the best steak in Salem. Possibly the best steak in the state of Oregon! I'm a steak connoisseur, and have traveled the entire West Coast. These guys are amazing and everything they do! Also, everything is handmade

    Absolutely the worst experience I have had in several years. Showed up at 6:20pm with a party of four and the place only had five other full tables. It took 2:45 hours to get food and the steaks were horrible, burnt to the point of not being edible $285.00 prior to any tip and no manager no discount no nothing but “yeah I don’t know why it’s taking so long”. Stay away!!

    The food and ambience are excellent! However, service was extremely slow. It was not at all busy but we waited at least 30 minutes before wait staff came by. Ordered a drink and our dinner, they brought the drink and some bread, then another half hour before the salads showed up. Will probably give it another try in the future.

    Would not recommend for a Fri/Sat night as they can't handle the volume of diners. Dissapointing birthday dinner :/ Food took ever an hour after ordering, was tepid, took 30 min to get butter for the baked potatoes, and had to go to the bar to order another round of drinks because they only had 3 waitstaff for the entire night and one was doubling as the bartender. Too bad as the atmosphere is nice, but probably best to keep it to drinks and an appetizer and save dinner for somewhere else.

    In spite of having a reservation, we were ignored by serving staff for over 20 minutes. Others around received drinks and at least someone talked to them. Finally a person said he'd be right over to help us, but he began tending bar and didn't come back for another 10 minutes. We had to ask several people if we could get service. No one came. Finally, we were concerned if we did order, would we get our food and make it to our concert scheduled to begin in 90 minutes. Our waiter told us they had 22 tables and were very behind - he'd check with the kitchen. Kitchen, he reported, told us they had 9 tickets ahead of us and they would not get to our order for 45 minutes. We left. We had a reservation; other tables were walk ins. This is the second and last time we will go to this restaurant. The first time we had horrible service as well. Do not recommend Chira's.

    We were sad to have a sub par experience here. Steaks overcooked, cold sides and lots of excuses from the server. Just felt disjointed but at $40+ for a steak I expect top notch.

    This was our first visit to Chira's. The food was fantastic! Everything tasted fresh and was cooked to perfection. Even the snow crab retained it's sweet freshness. Snow crab often gets rubbery and loses its sweetness due to over freezing. At Chira's it was excellent, the shells crisp and the meat sweet and firm. The lamb was also prepared perfectly with a nice, delicious sear and a wine reduction that was amazing! My husband had the halibut, delicately fried with no excess oil dripping on the plate. The fries were so fresh he said they still tasted like potatoes. Our only complaint would be how loud the live music was. They had a light jazz band playing but it was very loud for us. The music and singing sounded great, just the volume was a bit much. We will definitely be going back to Chira's though, no question!

    As usual, the food and service at Chira’s was excellent. Went there for mother-in-law’s birthday party and she was super pleased with the Rib-eye. Everyone else really enjoyed their plates. The servers are very personable.

    Finally, a great steak for a reasonable price! We had the 14oz. Rib Eye and was really flavorful and a perfectly cooked medium. The dinner includes soup or salad and choice of starch and vegetables. I had the grilled asparagus and it was perfect too! The service was great from beginning to end and our wait staff was fun to chat with. This place is a gem. Very welcoming to all.

    The wine was sweeter than expected - a Riesling, so I shouldn't have been surprised. Service okay, not prompt. Food good, not outstanding.
