    Excellent food, great staff. The chef and kitchen polite and professional. Proposed there and the restaurant staff and chef were all complimentary. The wine and drinks list are large and of high quality, with people who know what goes with what as well as personal likes for suggestions. No judgement for having your own tastes.

    Our server Marina was awesome!! The food was delicious!! I am hoping to book my 60th birthday dinner in their private dining room in March. Also, Jess took the time to show me the room along with what I can expect. She was great! Truly accommodating. Great value, exceptional food, and great service. I highly recommend.

    Absolutely love the interior vibe in this historic bank: The exposed brick walls and tin ceilings with dramatic lighting… the long high top community table… whats not to like. Thanks to server for tip that Eggs Benedict comes with runny whites so specify that you want eggs medium if thats not your thing…

    the food is fantastic , it's really cold temp wise and loud. so if you prepare for that, its' wonderful. but if not, meh.

    Ledger Restaurant & BarResponded on January 12, 2023Hello, Thank you for the review. Sunday brunch can be very lively, I must say that last week was particularly busy and boisterous. We try to keep an eye on the atmosphere and make it as appealing as possible to all parties. When we see you again, we would be happy to accommodate your preferences if we can.

    We waited 1 hour and 20 minutes from the time we placed our order till the food hit the table. Not once did the server apologize or check in with us. Other tables arrived after us and got their food before we did. Thanks, but no thanks. Won't return and can't recommend this place.

    I come here all the time. The food was extremely salty this time around, especially the mushroom campanelle. I am wondering what changed?

    Ledger Restaurant & BarResponded on December 31, 2022Rita, Thank you for the feedback. All of our dishes are prepared to order and house made. This can lead to some variation in seasoning. This is something we try to minimize, and we will make sure to address this with the kitchen. As always, if anything is not to your liking that we serve, we are more than happy to adjust or accommodate. We hope to see you soon.

    Good time & good food! My fiancee and I showed up for our 6:00 PM reservation and decided to take a seat at the mostly-full bar. The energy in the place was positive and lively on a Saturday night, with lots of friends and couples eating, drinking, and talking. Nice lighting. Good vibe overall. The bartender greeted us fairly quickly and produced too solid martinis. Soon thereafter we ordered dinner. I bad the short rib pasta and she had the chicken. The pasta was well prepared with decent flavors. Not sure I'd get it again, but that says more about my mood & taste than is does about the quality of the dish - pretty good. The chicken was excellent - crispy on the outside but juicy and tender on the inside (hard to do right, IMO). The dish came with mashed potatoes and roasted veggies, all prepared very well. I'll get the dish next time we go (or the sirloin steak). The point is, we'll be back. Solid choice on Salem's main street and probably a "go to" moving forward for us (we live in the Beverly area).

    Ledger Restaurant & BarResponded on December 18, 2022Thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you soon.

    You can find everything for a perfect brunch here on Sundays . The daily donut was hands down the best donut I’ve eaten to date.. and the pom 75 paired perfectly with the chicken sandwich. Don’t get me started on the breakfast potatoes.. I could talk about them for hours. -Already planning my next trip. Thank you Marina for the wonderful service ☺️

    Love the atmosphere of this bank-turned-restaurant spot. Menu was tight but interesting. Husband and I shared the Asian-inspired gem salad. He followed with the pork belly (delicious) and I with the poke (a nice-size portion of very fresh tuna). Overall, it was an excellent meal. However, we did think the prices were very high for some of the offerings, such as the mushroom pasta ($30) and the bolognese pasta ($35).
