I think Chira's is the best in Salem...and i am a picky. In fact we are going tonight again to take some different friends and introduce them to the best. Just as we did last week with different friends
Food was outstanding as was the service. We will be back!
Good food and service. Maybe a touch pricey for what we got, but I would go again.
Our server mason was AMAZING! Friendly atmosphere and delicious food!! Big portions!
Our waiter had a strong bad odor. My husband ordered his steak well done and it came out bloody with blood leaking from it and all over the other food. The waiter argued several times that it looked well done to him. He said this several times as well as saying we use a thermometer to measure it. We finally got the waiter to remove the untouched bloody food as he came back 1 more time to argue. Workers and the cook are in the kitchen without their face masks. The manager was in the bar with her face mask down the entire time and blowing into glasses.
A very enjoyable meal. The food was excellent and the service was great.
Amazing food, great service, nice environment, made for a great experience with my daughter and son-in-law. 2nd consecutive night eating here proves the first (with my youngest daughter) was not a fluke. Looking forward to working my way through the menu!
P.S. To those that have not experienced their food yet, try some of the Happy Hour appetizers and you'll be convinced!
Nice place, was quite and could have a nice conversation with my friends as we ate. Enjoyed the cocktails and the vibe. The steak was served on a hot Cast Iron dish, nice presentation for sure but I believe it caused my steak to be a little over done. Wasn't enough for me to send it back but I did notice it.
We were looking forward to our first time eating at Chria’s and unfortunately we were quite disappointed as to the quality of the food. Husbands steak was nothing but fat and gristle and my halibut fish and chips tasted like a poor quality of cod.
My dessert was quite good. Atmosphere very nice and service was good but food not so much!
Excellent food, service (Mason was a kick), and, other than it being a bit cold, a nice environment. My daughter and I were just ecstatic that we could eat IN the actual restaurant. I will be bringing my other kids here in the near future.
This was the best dining experience I've had in Salem. Friendly, courteous staff that were at our beck and call the whole time we were there. The food was amazing! Can't wait to come back!
This was another great dining experience. The food was excellent and the service was superb.
Grace was amazing. She's very personable, friendly and attentive while still allowing my mom and I to enjoy our dinner. The food was absolutely phenomenal, portions were larger than expected and prices were spot on for the quality and portion. This place makes me wish I was a local!
The was food great and excellently presented. The service was superb. the meal was very enjoyable.
Best dining experience I have had in a long time. This is a must dine for the Salem area. I loved the jazz music in the background and the building was fun. The server was very friendly and the food was great.
Exception food and service. One of our favorites for a date night!
Fabulous food and outstanding service!! The steaks were delicious.
Excellent food, great service. Lovely spot for dinner.
Excellent food and great service. Thank you very much.
Went here for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed! The food was very good, but the vibe and atmosphere was even better. The staff handled the busy room very well. We will definitely be back!
Everything was good but the service was extremely slow. It took over 30 minutes to get drinks and we had to wait almost an hour to get our food from the time we ordered it.
Food was good not great, but it was just so nice to dine in!
They put more booths in which seems more private and intimate. Food is always excellent and service is spot on. Love this place!
Great little place. A couple of the entrees were a little high priced. Overall the food was excellent and the service was great.
First night inside dining after Kate Brown order was lifted. Made reservations for 7 and didn’t get seated until after 8. We didn’t mind because we love Chira’s are we’re happy to be able to have indoor dining. What would have helped was to have a better system to seat us. Hostess was using her phone but not really checking us in. For the most part those of us waiting knew who was there first. However others were seated before us because they lied, not the hostess fault. Would have helped to have a paper check in with time we were there.
Awesome outdoor dinning service ! Yummy food 😋 I will come back again for a 2nd time! Totally recommend their pasta witj sausage and shrimp 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Dined here for my birthday, wait staff was super friendly. We were seated outside under a tent (of course, due to COVID restrictions) but they had 3 propane heaters going and it was nice and toasty. The menu is awesome. I got the prime rib and my wife got the French dip, both were delicious. It was raining and the water was splattering up from the side of tent onto my shoes so you might want to wear rain boots if you’re coming during COVID and have to be seated in a tent.
Overall great experience and like everywhere else they’re doing their best with the restrictions in place. I would highly recommend for a nice dinner, just wear layers if you don’t like the cold :)
Were very clean and walked up back to the tent for outdoor dining. There are lamps that kept us very warm and comfortable! Candles on tables and the food and service was so good! We will go back for sure.
My husband and I enjoyed an amazing outdoor dining experience even during the Covid pandemic. The waitress was so nice and had excellent recommendations. The food was outstanding. We ordered happy hour appetizers and tried several different dishes. The presentation of the appetizers was amazing and the flavors and textures was even better. I highly recommend the tortellini as well as the pork bellies appetizers. The calamari was exquisite as well.
Food amazing. Staff overworked and under trained.
Our waiter wore a mask, the bus staff didn't have it over their nose, and the kitchen wasn't wearing one.
We really love Chira's and they have done great with the outdoor dining. The heaters we so warm, I took off my coat and enjoyed dinner in a short sleeved shirt in January! You have to try the pork belly if you haven't, it's the best.
Food was great! I was really glad they were open. I was not able to eat inside (covid) so that is why I rated like it did.
We dined at Chira's on January 9, 2021, mid-pandemic. We are very careful to keep ourselves safe and rarely venture out, but Chira's advertised their outdoor dining so we decided to give it a try. We were very happy with the entire experience. We had a table under cover with an outdoor heater and no one nearby.
The restaurant's front of the house manager was also our server. She was scrambling to keep everyone happy and food moving from inside the restaurant to the tables outside on the sidewalk. We had the crab cakes and steamer clams as appetizers, and both were delightful and steaming hot. My chicken Oscar was fabulous. My husband's ribeye steak was on the tough side, but that is our only complaint. We also had cocktails and they were lovely.
Given the conditions that this local establishment is trying to operate in, I'd say they are doing an excellent job!
We loved our dinner. The restaurant is so beautiful and the ambiance is exquisite. My wife said it was the best fine dining experience she's ever had.
I really love this place! I’ve only been there twice and ordered the same thing each time but I do that because it’s so good. Took the whole family there the other day and everybody loved what they ordered. I highly recommend it.
Another great dining experience at Chira’s! Great service and the Cocktails were delicious! My husband had the pumpkin ravioli which was yummy! The pumpkin sauce was out of this world! I had prime rib...good flavor. A little to done for me...I should have known better...prime rib after 7:30 is usually to dine for me!
We had a great time, everything was perfect. Food was amazing. Price was legit.
A superb dining experience. The food was great and the service superb.
There was renovations going on which made it super hard to find. I had a reservation for my birthday and it was literally empty other then another birthday party and the staff really only focused on them. The food was overpriced for the quality and they randomly shut the music off for some reason.
A very good dining experience. The food was very excellent. The service was superb.
