Surprised how good it was...

We have family in Salem and have struggled to find good restaurants that accommodate diabetic and dairy menu modifications. Turns out, we didn't even need modifications. While the menu might seem confusing at first, trying to understand the combination of flavors beyond Italian, it all comes... read more

We have family in Salem and have struggled to find good restaurants that accommodate diabetic and dairy menu modifications. Turns out, we didn't even need modifications. While the menu might seem confusing at first, trying to understand the combination of flavors beyond Italian, it all comes together in the end. The calamari stir fry was wonderful and tender (just ordered... More

Love the building and the atmosphere is lively..They experiment with the menu, which is good. The waiters were fun and knowledgeable. The food is good for Salem ( we are new to the area and I admit I am spoiled from where I lived previously) The Wagyu beef carpaccio was so so ..the arugula wrapped with beef itself was good..sauce...

We just wanted a nice place to have a snack before attending an event. We ordered off of the hors d'oeuvre menu. We can't wait to go back to spend more time enjoying the quality service and food.

Service is always top of the line. The food and drinks never miss a beat for being great. With seating as it is, you can easily hold a business meeting.

I visit Salem once a year on business. Restaurants come and go. I hope this one stays. The atmosphere and decor are attractive and welcoming. The food choices are selective (read: small in number) but excellent. Everyone at our table enjoyed their choices which ranged from pasta, through chicken and beef. I had the Lamb Tagine which was excellent. The... More

We had a party of 8 and dinner was served timely and the food was wonderful. We ordered dessert and after waiting 25 minutes, some of our party had to leave (we had already been there 2 hours) they requested their dessert be canceled and could they pay their portion of the check. The waitress then came to me and... More

I didn't get a chance to taste anything. The sign advertised that they closed at 9, but when I went at 8:20, I stood around for awhile. Then, I sat at bar. Total wait time was around 10 minutes. I was about to give up when the bar tender walked up. I opened my mouth to ask for a dessert... More

Had the mushroom ravioli, best I ever had. Appetizers were yummy, brussel sprouts, lobster and charcuterie platter were satisfying. Great for couples and business meals.

Never had a bad meal here. The decor and atmosphere is very Bay Area, and the food is always excellent. A great place to take out of town guests for an upscale meal. A little spendy for Salem, but worth it for the food, service and location.
