    Slow service, but I think staffing is what every restaurant is dealing with now. Bread was good, soup too salty, salad w/ steak was huge portion and v good. Minimal wine selection but we had a very good bottle of Pinot Noir from Domaine Roy et Fils for a bargain.

    Hi. I normally never give a bad review, but this situation deserves it. We made reservations for 5 weeks ago and drove in from Phoenix. We were seated, waitress came over in 15 min to acknowledge us, got drinks and ordered appetizers. We didn’t see our server for awhile, finally came to take our order and we waited for 45 min and server came by to say our dinner was being plated. Then we waited another 30 min and asked again about our food? Said it’s the next ticket ?! We got up and left , my sister waited to get the food to go. Then they forgot to pack one of the meals. The bottom line was it wasn’t to busy for a Friday evening, no communication with the server or any attentiveness to to refill anything or be honest about the situation.

    Had a 6:00 reservation and was waiting for food until 7:40. Service seemed under staffed (though friendly) and kitchen was unbelievably slow. Would not return to wait 1 hour and 40 minutes to receive food.

    We were dying for a quality steak and decided to save a bit of money by forgoing Rudy's Steakhouse for Chira's. Sadly, everything about the meal, from the rolls and honey butter to the ribeye steak were solidly average, not worse or better. Speaking about the steak specifically, the portion was certainly large, but it was cooked medium when we asked for medium rare, and the outside was charcoaled. I had to slice off the outer layer because it was black and crusty. Two positives were: the server was nice and friendly and the glass of wine was a very healthy pour. Otherwise, very ho hum. In retrospect, we should have splurged and went with the proven commodity, Rudy's. It's definitely more pricey, but worth it! We've never had a bad meal at Rudy's. I don't think we'll return to Chira's.

    We were welcomed and seated at the table that was set for us. My wife's tentative entree choice became firm after clarification by our server, and she was pleased by the meal. I enjoyed one of my favorite entrees. Service was efficient and friendly from arrival to departure. We have dined at Chira's many times - the pleasant atmosphere and delicious food make every visit a treat.

    Was looking forward to celebrating dads day with dad who is 97 so thought we’d check out this place (we don’t live in Salem). Our server was awesome already don’t recall his name, has only been there since March and very engaging. Unfortunately, we were seated at 545 and it took at least 45 minutes to get our meal after ordering. We kept having to ask on status as we were at that point just ready to leave . When finally it took another 15 minutes to rectify the bill, apparently technical issues With all that being said, very disappointing debatable if we will be going back 😞

    I typically don’t like to leave negative reviews but unfortunately my experience was less then desirable. I brought my dad here for Fathers Day and it was so disappointing. Over half of the food was literally inedible. My daughters Mac and Cheese from the kids menu was not even cooked all the way. The noodles were still hard. She is. Max and Cheese nut and she only took one bite and refused to touch the rest. I ordered the halibut and it was so overcooked and tough I could not even cut into it so I could not eat it. My sons noodles from the kids menu were also not cooked all the way and too tough to eat and drowning in butter. He also refused to eat it. My husband ordered the brisket and the chili was so overly spiced with cumin he could not eat it and he eats everything and never complains. I’m glad that at least my dads steak was good. My mom ordered the fish and chips and the fish was good but the fries were so fried she could not eat them. I’m not even sure they resembled a fry ever. They were so fried I could not even tell what they were. Needless to say this was a disaster at best and I hope this doesn’t happen to someone else in the future. Especially when the bill comes to over $150.00! I feel like it was the worst waste of time and money I have spent at a restaurant in a very long time. I’m surprised and disappointing that the server didn’t notice the food not touched and didn’t ask if there was a problem. I don’t think people spend $150+ on dinner and refuse to touch the food.

    Went for a special occasion and recall this restaurant being top notch prior to Covid. Unfortunately, my favorite plate (parm crusted halibut) was no longer special. The food lacked the flavor it used to, the zucchini was practically raw and cold to touch. The service was also subpar. I believe this restaurant to be considered a fine dining restaurant but with the owners children running in and out of the kitchen, it was not the ambiance I was looking for. Not too mention the owners wife received extra attention, which I believe should be the opposite of what I would want as a business owner. I wish I could review this place better as I used to LOVE it.

    We waited over 2 hours for our food to even get to our table and when it did, I was a bit disappointed on how dry my pasta was. You'd think waiting that long to get your meal, it would be fresh and well served. Very unfortunate.

    Expect better service at this “high end” restaurant Took the server about 30 mins + to get us our first round of drinks, had to cancel our second round because they took WAY too long. Food was ok, my specific meal was the 14 oz ribeye steak, steak was dry, for some odd reason got my sides first, only to get a plate of cold mashed potatoes. Our sever literally didn’t even apologize, she just seemed annoyed when I brought it up. Definitely will not be coming back! Save your $$$$ I was a server for almost 8 years, if it’s not for you it’s not for YOU! Must be on top of everything, make sure food all comes out together, check in on your table every so often ECT. If im spending money like this on a meal, it better be top notch EVERYTHING
