Wonderful meal and great drinks and wine. It was a cold and rainy day when we stumbled into 62. What a great find! I had the lamb special and it was a generous portion and cooked to perfection with roasted vegetables. I had a wonderful drink before dinner called a Brown Derby. The menu is creative and everyone's meal was... More

My wife and I have been fans of the 62 since it opened approximately six years ago. Chef Bettencourt is an energetic, hard working chef and goes the extra mile with his menu and preparation. We are lunch people, so often only have a app at the bar. The manager and head bartender, Jeremy, will tip us off when the... More

An unplanned visit to Salem Mass. ended in an awesome dinner with great service. I have to say I enjoyed my GF's pasta better then my pork but both were great. The service was pleasant and she paired our wine perfectly with what we were both having for dinner.

Usually check out tripadvisor reviews before going someplace but didn't get chance to before heading out. Read the terrible and poor reviews as I was writing this review. Not sure where some of those people ate. And loved the comment that Salem people don't know what good food tastes like. Talk about obnoxious. But enough negativity. We were out with... More

We were recently in Salem for 'Christmas in Salem' and the 62 Restaurant was near our hotel and where we were walking. We made a great choice! We had a wonderful meal - a better meal than I have had in a long time. We both got various pasta dishes and they were simply awesome! The bread was homemade and... More

We went there this past week and the place is great! A perfect date night. Prices were a bit high but it was well worth it! We enjoyed every bite. The service was great as well! We highly recommend 62.

Went here for the first time while on our annual family vacation to Salem. My wife and I really enjoyed it. The ambience is great. Our waiter was fantastic. He really took the time to explain everything for us. The menu is really different and while we liked it very much the kids had a hard time finding something they... More

Visiting Salem for the second time for Halloween we booked a table here. Beautiful setting, venue and ambience. The staff were exceptional and very attentive. The menu looked interesting. We ordered bread which came a think slices with done very pale looking olive oil... We had to ask for balsamic! Two of us ordered the roasted beets. They were uninspiring... More
