Wild Pear, recently remodeled, is an attractive and cheerful space for lunch downtown. There are many choices--salad, sandwiches and wraps--for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Not every item is a hit--the tuna sandwich was ordinary and the iced tea odd in flavor (probably hibiscus). In... read more

This was really great food in dwntown Salem and near the hospital. I am a mostly vegetarian foodie and I like organic. I had great lentil soup and an organic salad. My relatives had a curry/ squash soup which they loved. A take out steak and spinach salad was also great.

We had a great lunch at The Wild Pear last week. Arriving at noon, we had about a 15 minute wait for a table. Service was very friendly and my French Dip was great--served on a very tasty roll and accompanied by what may have been home made potato chips. Nice decor--reminded us of Broken Rocks Cafe in Wooster, OH--one... More

I had lunch from the Wild Pear and ordered a salad with grilled chicken, avocado, quinoa, power greens and more. It was one of the best salads I've ever had. The dressing was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the Wild Pear!

My brother recommended The Wild Pear to us when we were heading down to Salem; both he and my sis-in-law love it. We have now eaten here three times; it's our go-to place when we're in the area. The place is small and very crowded right at noon, so we always go a little after that. On nice days, people... More

I liked this place. Good menu, friendly service, and the burger was fantastic. I also got the pear cider that was awesome.

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 lunch hour... 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
