You will NOT find better food or service

I honestly don't know where to start. The food at Wild Pear is the epitome of perfection so I won't go into too much detail. I think it would be hard for someone to look at their menu and NOT find something they like. Everything is so fresh and the presentation is just right. Don't come during a... read more

3 of us all had different types of food. Each was excellent. Wait staff friendly. Clean restrooms which is always a pet peeve of mine. You would expect to pay a lot more for the quality of food here but they don't. Loved the variety of food offered. You can't really say this is a particular ethnic style of food.

Had to stop in for lunch in the newly restored restaurant as they had a flood from an upstairs unit late last year and I was anxious to see the new place and what the owners had done to it- and of course to get the customary delicious and well prepared meal. I chose the steak salad with blue cheese.... More

Consistently delicious Northwest cuisine. This is our go-to place whenever we want to treat visiting friends with discriminating palates.

Food and service are A1. Definitely recommend this to everyone. Parking is not so good but it's worth the wait to find a space. This is the price you pay to eat diwntown

We just discovered Wild Pear, a lovely restaurant in downtown Salem. We stopped in for brunch on a dreary, rainy Saturday and soon found ourselves in friendly, beautiful, cozy and welcoming confines. The decor has an artful, slightly upscale feel without being the least bit pretentious. The place was crowded so we grabbed seats at the bar. That turned out... More

Whenever we are going to take someone out for a nice brunch it's either Word of Mouth or The Wild Pear. So for my daughters 27th birthday off to the Wild Pear we went. It certainly didn't disappoint and even though it was right at lunch time on a good weather Friday we were lucky to be seated immediately. My... More

Great spot for a delicious lunch. We got there at 11:00 on a Friday which turned out to be perfect. By 12:10 the place was packed. The 4 of us all ordered different items and raved about each dish. Soup was unique and spot on with spices. We covered all three that were offered at our table and each one... More

We ate here in the summer and sat outside. It can be a long wait if you show up right at lunchtime when all the state workers are having lunch, but if you go before or after, it's not bad. I love the unique food they offer. I thought lunch was affordable, but their dinner menu is pretty expensive. The... More
