Piano bar is my favorite
Service, food & cocktails are always superb! We especially enjoy Friday and Saturday nights when Tommy plays piano.
Extraordinarily long wait for mediocre food and a very rude waitress. Awful experience. We will not be returning.
We were interested in trying out this restaurant due to good reviews. Our daughter is a CIA graduate chef and she and her family joined us for the meal. It seemed obvious to her that the restaurant is struggling with staffing. Our waitress was overworked and inattentive and complained that she was trying to train other staff while she was working. There was a long wait between drinks and ordering, and then a wait of over one hour between salads and the main course. The food was good -- not great - and certainly not worth the wait. When I nudged the server during our long wait, she explained that "good food takes time". The food wasn't THAT good, and it took way too much time, and in a case of a significant delay, a good restaurant will keep patrons informed and perhaps offer something to nibble on while an understaffed kitchen tries to catch up. We won't return.
Best steak and pasta in Salem
Excellent meal. They were out of the lamb chops so i opted for the hanger steak and it was perfect. Far exceeds my recent trips to a local restaurant that rhymes with Judys and the one in Portland that rhymes with blingside . The steak here had a sauce similar to bordelaise and cooked more in the French tradition (or Italian) where taste and accoutrements are important. So far superior to the others I mentioned it’s not even a fair comparison. While not maybe as tender as a Wagyu rib eye, the price (given the recent rise in bees prices) was reasonable. I prefer a thicker cut but smaller, which this was. My wife’s seafood pasta was also superb - shrimp and scallops. I will be ordering it in one of the next few visits. Caesar salad is still the best in Salem and certainly isn’t bottled dressing. I don’t usually write review unless the experience is outstanding or disappointing. This is definitely the former. Service was up to the quality of the food.
Amazing environment and excellent dining experience
Really great experience and food. We loved the ambiance and Jacob was really great and accommodating to our large group. The bread is amazing and so were all dishes we ordered. Wish we lived closer to be regulars here.
