I had dinner here with my wife on a Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised. I did not expect much from the Salem dining scene but enjoyed a very nice meal with a waiter who was beyond knowledgeable of the menu. Would stop back in if we get back to Salem.

This was our second trip to 62 and we were just as happy this time. The food is excellent and somewhat unique. The pasta is fresh made and awesome! The atmosphere, right on Pickering Wharf is great. You must eat at 62 - you won't be disappointed.

We went for dinner with local friends who had eaten here several times. The decor was very pleasing without being over done. The ambiance was quietly elegant. For appetizers we had veal shortribs and a Bibb salad. Both were excellent and presented very nicely. For entrees we had beef shortribs, a 62 burger with cheese and carmelized onions, and fresh...

We went for Tapas and drinks and it was really good. The restaurant was pretty quiet that night and the waitstaff ok, not as accommodating as I would have liked... it was the night before Thanksgiving, so I'm sure they wanted to go home. :)

Our dinner was delightfully delicious. The grilled calamari is just ok, but the fried brussels sprouts, grilled chicken and garganelli were absolutely wonderful. We did not have a reservation, but were able to get a table around 5pm. The staff was very professional and friendly. We'd go back if we come back to town.

From start to finish, everything was memorable. Service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the ambience very calming. Halloween weekend was busy ... what a great find to enjoy some wonderful food and be spoiled for a time.

My wife and I have eaten at 62 the Wharf many times. Because the restaurant is so good we make a special effort to get to Salem, which is 45 minutes away from our house. We always enjoy the creativity, that the owner, Tony Bettencourt, puts into both his drinks and food menus. Last night we had one of the... More

We had reserved 2 weeks in advance to the pre-Halloween weekend, so the town was busy, to say the least. Nevertheless, nothing was worth the wait. Only a 5:30 reservation was available for our table for 5, so we assumed that we would be comfortably done by 7:30. Not. Though the restaurant was hardly full -- and obviously, dinner had... More

Had dinner with friends on Sunday night during the Halloween week in Salem. Found street parking nearby-always a bonus! Our waitress Kaitlyn was excellent. Helpful, present and not intrusive. Our older kids shared a pasta dish and really liked it! Our grilled calamari were just right and the duck was super! Medium rare, no sweet sauces-finger licking good. Topped with... More
