“Very enjoyable dinner(s)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We've been to 62 a few times over the last month and thoroughly enjoyed each occasion. We had been there fairly regularly when they had first opened and really enjoyed it, but then, for no particular reason it kind of fell off our radar. Mainly due to too many new options in Salem to explore, and travel. In any case, we are so glad we've gotten back there. The appetizers are delicious, their housemade pasta dishes are wonderful and the entrees consistent very good. Add in a solid wine list and 62 is a winner. We will be back again soon!

“Superb food and wonderful service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

My husband and I recently discovered 62 Restaurant and Wine Bar and rated it our favorite place to dine on picturesque Pickering Wharf. The food on your plate is not just a pretty presentation; it's delicious, prepared with knowledge and pride by the chef and his staff--offering interesting flavor combinations in various small plates (e.g., ricotta filled fried zucchini blossoms, chickpea fritters, or cider braised pork belly with a spicy cabbage salad), appetizer and entree portions of handmade pasta, meat and seafood such as Faroe Island salmon or pan roasted cod with chorizo, and grilled skirt steak with asparagus and wild mushrooms. Who would want to resist any of the tempting desserts and gelato that are made in-house daily? Starting on June 6, they will open for lunch on Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Definitely returning soon to explore Pickering Wharf and enjoy another fine meal at 62!

“Small menu but elegant food and service”

We go to "62" at least once a week, for the excellent food, the deep wine list, and the wonderful service. Highly recommended to all.

“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

62 Restaurant and Wine Bar was a great choice for a wonderful dining experience. We went early to have a drink at the bar before dinner. This was the first time I experienced Prosecco on tap and it was very good. The bartender was very friendly and quite helpful in helping us select a bottle of wine to accompany our dinner. We had some appetizers with our Prosecco and had a tough time choosing from a very nice selection. Same problem at dinner.... a real nice choice of appealing entrees. We'll be back the next time we are in the area.
