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 my sister and brother in law. We arrived very early and we're asked to wait in the bar. Nice seating for pre dinner drinks. The bar itself was wide and had tv on for playoffs. Our waitress was prompt and brought us all menus. When we told her we were waiting for our table she never broke her smile. We then chose a nice Barolo from a very complete and not very pricey wine menu. Waitress informed us there were two more bottles some wouldn't need to switch during dinner (nice touch).
We were the moved to our table. The menu has many but not too many choices. All small plates could be expanded to entrees. Meatballs were delicious (secret was the ricotta in the mix). Also the arancini (fried risotto balls (that's my description in theirs :-))) was delightful and the tuna was damn fine too. Then it was on to my duck breast, mushroom ravioli, pesce soup and pasta dish for entrees. All comments were it was delicious. Topped it all of with cappachino tiramisu and hazelnut gelato. All tickled the taste buds. Add great, friendly and very attentive service and the entire experience was great. There are many good restaurants in Salem. 62 is a must add to your lists of places to try. We had a great evening!

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 we highly recommend the cauliflower appetizer. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable of the wines the restaurant served, the dinners and their portions and was simply excellent. I would recommend the 62 Restaurant and would certainly return!

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 liked. We had a delicious wine we had never tried before. I will definitely go back but as a date night with my wife.
