Still dreaming about The Healer

This place is EXCELLENT! If you want a healthy meal, you cannot go wrong. I live in NY and know my way around health food restaurants and this one is very good. Super friendly staff. Reasonable prices. I wish I lived closer I would be a regular.

Good food for those who like vegan. But the atmosphere is awful: loud drumming "music," uncomfortable seating, and an awkward way of ordering, waiting, and having to ask for basics, like water. (Also awful.)

Healthy, delicious food. Perfect when you want to feel good about what you eat in an enjoyable quiet atmosphere. We stop here whenever we are in Salem and wish we had one in our town.

It's a great place for vegans, vegetarians and everyone else. Great selection both warm and cold and awesome smoothies and juices. I can't say enough about how good the food was. Even the 8-year old who had the Fiesty Child loved it!

Our family recently dined at this restaurant in Salem, MA. It appealed to the strict vegan/vegetarians as well as to the omnivors. The selection of dishes was diverse. The service was great. The décor interesting.

The restaurant has a nice welcoming atmosphere and it is clean. The food is very expensive, even for using organic produce. It was over $10.00 for a simple wrap with broccoli, cheese and not much else. That is just the wrap, nothing else, no sides and I didn't order a beverage. The service is sort of slow, even when it's... More
