The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the entire staff was top notch. The food was excellent and Chris, our server, was friendly and efficient. He went our of his way to accommodate my wife's gluten allergy. We will definitely dine here again the next time we are in Salem.

My (now) husband and I first dined at 62 Restaurant about a year ago - a few nights before we got married, as a way to reconnect just the two of us before the craziness began. We could not have made a better choice - the food was delicious (I swear the tagliatelle bolognese was just about the best thing... More

62 is by far and away our favorite restaurant in Salem. We have lived here for 6 years and only noticed it tucked away on the wharf a couple of years ago. It is our go-to for when we have guests in town, or for a special occasion. The staff are friendly and the food is out of this world.... More

After a failed birthday dinner in a different restaurant, my husband said it didn’t count and pledged to get it right somewhere else. That was last December. Then came the holidays, so it got put off; then came winter—as in Winter Of the Century here in Salem—then came the spring colds; and then we got to the six-month mark. We... More

Pretty much sums up the dinner we had, along with our family members here in town for our daughters graduation from nearby Endicott College. Food was consistently excellent and our server, Helen, was exceptional (so too the others helping her with our table; but I'd be sure to ask for Helen if I was you) . No need to go... More

I was there having dinner with a friend while on a business trip. The food was eclectic but well prepared and presented. The service was great with our waitress being knowledgeable and noting that two old friends just wanted to catch up. Pleasant evening

I hadn't been to 62 Wharf in quite some time -- not sure why it fell off my radar. Anyway, I had such a good meal there I returned the following week with some friends. The menu itself is one of the best around. The pastas are very interesting with ingredients you don't expect like rabbit or soft-cooked egg or... More

Lovely dining experience. My husband had a cocktail off their specialty menu that was inventive and tasty without being overly pretentious. They have about 5 red wines and 5 white wines by the glass with a longer list of wines by the bottle, which was enough of a choice for us. We ordered two small plates - lamb sausage and... More
