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

Well prepared seasonal ingredients, diverse menu, probably everyone in your group will find something to please their palate.Their wine list is pretty good, the cocktails interesting, but the hard liquor and beer assortment is somewhat lacking, for my taste and my companions.

Had dinner with friends. Everyone loved everything they got. Duck was fantastic, pork bellies great, numerous pasta dishes loved by whole table. Even the salads were terrific. Wine selection was good something for everyone. Beer selection was ok but you're not here for that

This is our "go-to" restaurant for birthdays and anniversaries. Everything is fresh and homemade, and cooked perfectly. The service is also terrific. It rivals any similar restaurant in Boston and is without a doubt one of the best restaurants on the North Shore. I recommend the homemade pasta and the cocktails- yum!
