    We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my boyfriend at CHIRA’S. We had a large group of 11 people and there were only two servers. Right away the server let us know it may be a bit of a wait, but we still enjoyed the evening. CHIRA’S ambiance was lovely, the menu selection was amazing and the food was impeccable!! Everyone at our table LOVED what they ordered & will definitely be back!!! I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Excited to go to a restaurant for the first time for Thanksgiving and having heard wonderful reviews from this restaurant, I was most excited to try Chira's; however, my husband and I were significantly disappointed. While the prime rib was tasty, the turkey was a little dry. I was in line behind a large party and scraped the bottom of the cheese tray options. When I got to the highly anticipated dessert, there was a tiny bit of Cool Whip left to spoon onto my pie, not even REAL whipped cream. For spending almost $50 per person, I was significantly disappointed. The rolls were very good as was the stuffing, but we were expected a more festive environment with decor and/or holiday music to usher in the season. Our server was wonderful and attentive, and my strawberry lemonade was delicious, a small compensation for the rest of the disappointment.

    I wish I could give five stars for everything but the service was lacking. We had a reservation for 7 and when we arrived they told us they were getting our table ready. After about 10 minutes they told us they were ready for us and took us to a table that had been empty the entire time we waited. Didn’t start off great. After being seated we waited awhile for the waitress to take our order. She was really nice but not attentive at all. We waited about 15 minutes for the straws she told us she would bring then had to flag someone else down. We were probably there at least 30 minutes before the complimentary bread was brought. The wait time for our food was kind of long but the food was amazing. There were some negative reviews regarding the service but I figured it was not a common issue. Maybe I’m wrong. I really wish I could give an amazing review because the food was so so good. But the service needs work.

    What a pleasant surprise. This was our first time eating at this restaurant. I took my son and his girlfriend there for their anniversary and everyone loved their food. The menu had a wonderful and varied array of foods that sounded delicious…and they were. We had the panko encrusted halibut which was succulent. The rib eye was flavorful and extremely generous sized…and I had the smaller of the two sizes! The onion rings were some of the best I’ve ever eaten and I’ve been eating onion rings for 60 years! All in all, A+ experience.

    Got soup and the taste was great but it was lukewarm. Main dish was warm in parts, ranging from cold on top to warm on the bottom. Onion rings were cold. Flavors of the food were good, but probably delicious when warm. The service was none. We got an order and a check and that was it. No checking on us. No refills. The other staff member was attentive checking in a guest seated after us 3 times in her section.

    Bottom line my wife left crying. It was our anniversary. I chose this restaurant bc it showed 5 star. That....was NOT 5 star. From the time it took to get served, asking for the comp bread basket, over salted prime rib dinner, fighting to get the crab meat out of the shell until I had to "ask" for the correct utilsel, to the 2nd prime rib being over salted, to the spilled dipping sauce witnessed by 3 waitresses and having my wife and I clean it ourselves with our own napkins......just a horrible experience.

    Our server was newish and wonderful. The bar didn’t have the wine we selected in stock, but the bartender offered an alternative wine (higher priced) for the same price and it was an excellent pick. Food was excellent. We’ll definitely be back. Plus we’re history buffs and the history of the Reed opera house (they are located inside) is a wonderful opportunity to wander around and see how the roaring twenties in Salem must have been.

    Food was good. Was a little surprised when my husband ordered the “rack” of lamb and received 2 small lamb chops but he said they were good. Not really enough to constitute the price. Food was slow to come out but tasted good. Service needs improvement: We were never given bread and butter. Only some of the table was asked how they wanted their meat cooked. The waitress cleared my sons “side dish” food and fork from the table before he was done. When we informed her she laughed and told a story of how she took a 12 year olds fork previously and they refused to use the new one. No sorry I threw your food away that you were still eating she just brought another fork and proceeded to ask about dessert.
