REVIEWS OF Chira's - Restaurant and Catering IN Oregon

Javier Acosta

Butternut ravioli with hazelnut sauce to die for!

Janelle Martinez

Love this place

Elizabeth Ugalde

We went here tonight. Waited for 15 plus minutes at the table. We were not acknowledged. A guy and a gal with the water both walked right by us even though we had no water. We were underdressed. In sweatshirts and jeans. Our fault because we didn’t know it was a dressy place. So maybe that why we were not given service?

Toni Hood

Love the food and Ambience. If you had exceptional customer service/staff, we Believe you are as good as your competitor (Rudys). The service just lacks enthusiasm and conversation.

KathieByers .

Everything was fabulous! We had to go to Costco and didn't want to eat at a franchise restaurant. So we googled "good eats" in Salem. It's our new favorite place! The fish and chips were the best we've ever had.

Dan Sommers

Great food!! Great service!! Had friends from Florida and the Philippines they loved the food as well as the experience!! Thank you!!!

Justin Melton

great food and good service.

Lauritz Hays

I had found this restaurant on OpenTable and loved the venue. It's in the old Reeds Opera House with lots of history. My meal consisted of a nice salad with fresh mixed greens, dried cranberries, sliced almonds and blue cheese crumbles tossed with a light vinaigrette. I would suggest they add a little sliced red onion for more crunch. The option included a nice glass of wine and my entree was a perfectly pan fried piece of halibut served overtop of pumpkin ravioli in a cheesy creme sauce that was fabulous. Service was great and I would absolutely return if my travels took me back to the area.

Michiel Spence-Majors

I love this place, great food, great staff and fantastic service.

Vlad Bond

Way overpriced and takes forever to get food and restaurant wasn't busy at all maybe 6 tables I waited for my food a little over 1 tasted ok but not great

Randy Bray

Love this place. The brew selection is extensive and the food delicious. Try the fried avocado!

Teddie Baker

Delicious lunch and great service. Will be my go to place for lunch with girlfriends. Super atmosphere and relaxing music.


Came here on a Friday night and this place was relatively empty...WAKE UP SALEM! The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is classic and comforting. They had live music tonight and it wasn't over bearing to where you can't have a conversation. The service is phenomenal and all the staff is very knowledgeable of the wine and menu. What else can you ask for? Don't let this place fail!

Drew Bartlett

Food, service & ambiance was awesome! Salmon and clam chowder were great!

James Marshall

The food is crafted with care, the atmosphere is pleasant and the wait staff are polite. Other restaurants should aspire to be as great as Chira's.

Sharon Davis

Was really impressed by everything . Great food , drinks , waiter that I wished I remember his name , I thought it was going to be very expensive but was not at all .I can't wait for our next visit and am looking forward to when they start searching breakfast. Oh and the halibut fish tocos and clam chowder is out of this world. I can't say enough great stuff about this restaurant.

Gene Murashko

Very high quality food and drinks. There is also space for large parties.

Marshall Gibson

This one is a favorite for my wife and I. My wife is a fiend for chicken alfredo. Many restaurants will charge 15$ for a plate of boring alreado. Chiras makes a batch that you will be very satisfied with. It is delicious. My personal favorite is the "Really Big Nacho". This is on the appetizers but lets be honest it is a meal. This nacho is clearly made by someone who loves nachos. The chip to toppings ratio is perfect and it is made with seasoned grilled chicken. It is great. I recommend adding sauted jalapenos if you like some spice. I have had many other items from their menu and everything I have had is very good. They frequently have live music on the weekends. The wait staff are very friendly and do their jobs very well. I have also been served by the owner of the restaurant and he is very friendly. I hope this restaurant sticks around for a long time because this is the kind of place Salem need more of.

David Campbell

Just a wonderful experience this evening. The Ribeye steak was amazing. And to find out that Alex is the bartender made it even better. That guy can make an Old Fashioned better than anyone in Salem. Highly recommend this awesome restaurant. The staff is superb and the food delightful. The owner stopped by our table and we offered kudos for our meal and the atmosphere. You will not be disappointed. What a jewel for Salem

Lyn Jarka

We loved this restaurant! We heard of the chef that is the owner on the radio and decided to try it. What a find! We took a friend for her birthday. I had the ribeye which was so tender and done exactly as I wanted. My wife had the lamb rack and she loved it. My friend had the shrimp pasta dish and she said it was delicious. Our server was so personable we felt we made a new friend. We will definitely return to Chira's very soon.

Anna Kumpula

New place in town. Delicious! Local chef/owner prepared menu. The best of different dinning experiences in one place. Comfortable yet not lacking in food quality and detail to service.

Abe Zamora

Nice place, wait staff were all very friendly

Lyn Gehr

Outstanding meal. Wonderful service.

Margaret White

Great food and portions are generous. Delicious margaritas too.

Jackie Goldman

Had the best dinner tonight. We had the best server Mason! He is by far the best server we have ever had at any restaurant! I highly recommend this restaurant and request Mason so you get the best server ever!!

Elizabeth Bartman

Good ambience, nice wine selection, large portions of tasty food

gordon barrett

Fish and Chips are amazing. Prime Rib great! Dang I love this place. Great service, great food and wonderful atmosphere.

Lee Morgan

Classic soft jazz delicious lunch with outstanding service... You should go.

Debra Kirschner

Great food and service and a nice atmosphere make this reasonably priced restaurant a great place to eat in Salem. It's inside the Reed Opera House!

Ron Jackson

This place has been open long enough now to get the "kinks" worked out - at least one would think. Nope. One time we go in and they are all out of "all" of their pastas. Another visit and we wait and wait for service, then the server can't space the deliveries properly. We got water, gave wine order, waited on wine, then (finally) were given the opportunity to place our order, wine finally shows up, waited on our soups forever, soups delivered.....moments before the main course! Rookie mistake. My pasta was good as was its sauce. The wife's pasta was mushroom heavy and the "homemade" pesto sauce was watery and overwhelming. They've added music on occasion which was a nice touch but doesn't help the questionable service and food prep. The owner isn't keeping a mindful eye on his cooks or his wait staff. This was a 90 minute ordeal!

Zack Weems

Amazing Food, great service. Fancy but great prices. Highly recommended!!!

Sharon Pierson

Interesting menu and very tasty. Fish tacos are good. Had cilantro chicken soup that was superb.

man man

Stopped by for a quick lunch beer. The place was relaxed with groups of people enjoying themselfs. Nice spot whether single or with friends.

Tami Freeman

This is a wonderful new restaurant in Salem. Quality food, wonderful service, and the owner will even come out and say "Hi".

Dixie McCartney

Chira’s sent the entirely wrong order through UberEats and when I called, they didn’t offer any kind of resolution or fix. No one even seemed to know how to respond. Looking at other reviews, it seems they may not have their act together on location either. Too bad for Salem.

Hans Moeller

Excellent service from an incredible staff. The food is superior. Ambience is charming, comfortable, and romantic. The quality of this place can only be rivaled by the passion, dedication, and taste of the owner.

Mike Nolley

All I can say is, WOW! Get the coconut shrimp - fantastically crispy coconut shrimp on delectable beds of cabbage dressed with a deceptively simple mango chutney with extraordinary ginger top notes. For the price, this is one of the best appetizers available in all of Salem. The poached pear salad was also very good, especially when paired with the blackberry cider. The staff are extremely friendly and upbeat, and the music is good. Food aficionados and jazz lovers will experience a rare treat.

Jon Lapray

Had an incredible meal here with my wife!! My wife had the fish & chips and I had the steak, and we shared it all up!!!! Great open atmosphere and decor. Service by staff was most excellent ~ attentive and friendly. Salivating now as I'm remembering the steak!!!

Kristi Juarez

Read about this place online and decided to try it for a business lunch. Didn’t disappoint! The food was amazing (forgot to take pics), and service was good as well.

Orv Pickett

Good food. Clam chowder was really good

Devon Grogans

Great atmosphere and food was all fresh and made to order the price was more than fair for the dishes size and quality. My wife and I split the spirited chicken nachos and jalapeño burger with 2 drinks and it was less than $50. The chef came out and personally asked how everything was. This is a hidden gem in Salem!

Jeffery Weaks

Food was delicious and very good service. Owner was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wines.

Curt Arthur

Can't give a 5 star review because there is no full bar, just beer and wine. The food was fantastic, specifically the pork and gnocchi, and the ravioli (which is not made on site but sourced locally we were told). The sage cream sauce was to die for. The halibut fish and chips were raved about but we found the breading too moist and not really crispy....but the halibut was super fresh. For appetizers we had the coconut shrimp and the Ahi Tuna. Both were excellent.

Sam Ortiz

We went to Chira's for a birthday dinner for a dear friend and there were 12 of us, including a few rambunctious little ones. They had an alcove set aside for us with enough room and easier to keep the kids corralled. Everyone was really kind and there were lots of different food options for everyone to find exactly what they wanted. Nice wine selection too, and a lovely dessert menu of course :) We definitely plan to come back, maybe for a date night without the kids!


Fantastic people, food and service.I highly recommend this restaurant.

shirley Kavanaugh

What a wonderful addition to our food scene here in Salem. Chira's works very hard to make your food and experience. You will love them!

Joey Lopez

The food was great service took a little too long we were the only table in there we were very large party

Lesley Bean

What an amazing place to eat! Our new go to place.

Mario de Obaldia

Katie was great. Young, centered and excited about her experience as a server. The food was excellent. My wife, by chance, found Chira's with a friend for lunch and dragged me here for dinner. She won't have to drag me a second time. The chef came by the table to chat and we were pleased to inform him if our satisfaction. The ambience is as conducive to a good dining experience as the food. Well done and thank you.

Essie Woods

I love Chira's! I've been here twice now. My first time was at the end of 2017 i believe and I brought a four year old and 10 year old which I was nervous about because I didn't want to interrupt anyone's dinner. It wasn't very busy which was great and the girls were mostly well behaved. The service was great and the food was amazing!

Amy Dent Beebe

Delicious food and one of the best waiters we've ever had. We will definitely be back. Make sure to check this place out!

Derek Lowe

Excellent food, great service and amazing cold microbrews!

Joyce Park

Excellence describes our Valentine meal today! Value was good for what we received with our four course meal. Service was very customer-oriented. The Valentine beef special and stuffed chicken were supreme. Soup, stew, crab salad and heirloom tomato salad were so tasty that we could have made them our entrees. The creme brulee and chocolate cake melted in our mouth. Last Valentine's and Mother's Day brunch were equally as good. Yuri, his wife, and the rest of the staff seemed to really enjoy their jobs. The Jazz Ensemble played music pleasant to the ears. Beverages were kept refilled. We will return and enjoyed it so much we got a gift certificate for our daughter and family to enjoy! Hey you 'all, keep up the excellent work!

Emily Nelson

The waiter Justin is very very nice and helpful but the food took forever we have been here 45 min and it’s during the taco crawl they should have been ready for a crowd and lots of people. The food is good

Ben Boyer

The owner has the right idea but wrong delivery. We were a party of 10 which I think threw things off. I would say that parties of 4 are a much better way to enjoy the restaurant. Some food was cold, some was way past well done for us medium folks. Ambiance was great, service was good. Food took a looooong time to arrive and when it did, it wasn't up to expectations.

Brandon Moglia

First off I'd like to compliment the service. It was exceptional. Very prompt, cheerful and attentive. Nice ambience as a whole for the restaurant as a whole. The food was good. My girlfriend ordered the prime rib which was great. I had the crab/ artichoke tortellini. I thought it was ok. No taste of crab at all and the sauce was ok as well. A $22 pasta dish, not so much. Overall a good experience and I will return to try something else


Had a really good dinner here. Everything was delicious.

Doug .

Fantastic food, very unusual beef stroganoff but delicious with onion strings instead of noodles. And the sweet potato tots are amazing. Will definitely be back for live jazz at the end of the month.

David Sarff

Service was great very friendly and the inside is well designed to make you feel at home and let go and relax then the food come out and was the best burger I've had in a long time the coby beef just has a taste you have to try for yourself

Josh P

Went in for my parents Anniversary dinner. 2 star because the place is nice and has good floor plan. Waitress seemed to be out of it. Forgot our drinks, and brought the food old luke warm

Michele G

Atompshere is great. Food is good. Sericie was great.

Elton Ferreira

Amazing place. I had one of the best rib eyes, ever - as a true Brazilian I love good meat. Attendants really friendly, good beer (I should have had the meat with a good wine - would be a perfect combination) and fantastic atmosphere. My family had a good time as well. Strongly recommend!!!

Roy Kiesler

Cool little place at the Reed Opera House with great ambiance. Food is good.

Malik Khan

very nice clean good place very good behavior 5 star protocol very relaxing good environment and great food they need more customers please come enjoy and help them to increase family owned business

Evan Myklebust

Went for happy hour and was very happy with the food, service and cleanliness.

Denise Russell

Great food and alot of gluten free options!

Kyle Doty

I absolutely love Chira's! Great atmosphere, service, and food. Besides steak and some seafood, have some options for vegitarians. I had their butternut squash ravioli last time I visited and found it to be delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Jeannette Hulse

Took a chance and it paid. Excellent food - an actual cesaer salad that wasn't drowned and great entrees. Bonus was the soft jazz club vocalist and trio. The service was amazing considering there appeared to be only one waitress on the floor. Cons were the cloth napkins smelled strongly of detergent and the custard in the creme brulee was thin and not well set. Highly recommend.

Sonya R Johnson

Wonderful, delicious food, great atmosphere, reasonable prices! Highly recommended!

Melissa Skirving

Great food. Great service. Friendly owners. We will definitely be coming back!

Elly Mercer

I've eaten here several times in the past 2 weeks visiting Salem.The chef is fantastic, the dishes are creative, delicious, and the service is top notch! The overall experience is something I highly recommend, don't miss this one, easy parking right down town. Live jazz music some nights, and daily specials. Chiras family does not disappoint. Cheers!

Rain McKenzie

Delicious crab cakes and herbed bread. My daughter and I came in and I ordered a salad as well. Sat and chatted while we enjoyed the artwork and atmosphere. Very friendly table service. :-)

Michael Owen

A little dark inside but not terribly so, seating is quite comfortable and they have done a really nice job of turning the space in to something elegant. I had the sausage tortellini which was excellent and had a well balanced pesto and amazingly the sun-dried tomato were not tough. From what the rest of my fellow guests described everything was very good, especially the prime rib philly was noted as one of the best they ever had. Value is especially good here, you get a tasty meal of a reasonable size for a reasonable price. The one thing I would note is this place takes a bit of time to make their food, so be prepared for that.

Gene Jenkins

Love this in Salem. Great food, service, also best happy hour around.

Denise Palmer

Fantastic... Service was Great and the food cooked to Please.

Jacop Rogers

The food was pretty good. If you're going for breakfast, order lunch because that's about how long it'll take to get to your table.

Tamera Sue Green

Onion rings were out of this world!

Vik P

Justin is the best server we have ever encountered , his on top of his game ! Very polite and classy ! P. S give him a raise !!!!!! He deserves it !

Tim Vickers

Beautiful little restaurant in the Reed Opera House. Was here for Valentine’s Day and they truly made the experience memorable. The food was top notch, as well as the service, even though they were packed for the event. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, but the experience isn’t the most affordable, which I feel restricts future opportunities of returning. Fantastic option for a romantic date.

Today’s Testimony

I highly recommend Chira’s Restaurant. Justin & Yasmine we’re friendly and attentive to our table! The food was amazing! I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to sit down and enjoy good food in a great atmosphere!

Ann Robinson-Glenn

Delicious food and a great atmosphere! We really enjoyed our lunch!

Daleer Badiei

This place has the best clam chowder I've ever had in a restaurant. Now when I go to the coast I get chowder to go from Chira's and take it with me since unfortunately, nothing remotely as good is available at the coast itself. As a clam chowder connoisseur, I'm giving Chira's 5 stars just based on their clam chowder alone since it's so hard to find really good clam chowder and Chira's is the best I've ever had.

Erwin Pieroni

I'm someone whom normally would not eat burger. If I do, it must be rarely and must be really really good. So for me writing this review, tell you alot about the burger at this place. I order the Angus swiss mushroom burger during lunch. The first bite into it, I know that this is the "IT" and the only place for me to have a burger. The ambiance is there, attentive service, and good food. It cost $12. It comes with 3 slices garlic bread and butter, burger itself and fries. Good price considering on fine dining establishment So I decided to come back a week later to try their american kobe beef burger, I cant say that I love it as much as the swiss mushroom burger. dont get me wrong though, it was good, but i wouldnt rave it as much as the angus burger. my brother in law likes it though. I'll definetly be back to try their other food courses.

Diana Mathis

Food was ok. Meal took a long time coming. Nice servers.

Ken Richins

Nice quiet place in a nostalgic building. Friendly service. Good food.

john wold

Everything I have tried here has been excellent. The owner is very involved with the customer experience and makes it a fun time every time.

Ryan Kackley

Always good. Pnw menu and many unique combinations.

John Bronson

Great food, large portions, the waiter pays attention and serves you well, but Isn't a bother.

Jordan Copeland

The service and atmosphere are great. For the price the food was a bit lacking, but over all a good place to grab a bite while at the Reed.

Jonathan Fugitt

The food was fine after it arrived but it took way too long and they were not busy. Seemed like 45 min or longer. The soup, which should have been first out was last to arrive. We ordered burgers, nothing special to make, and other tables who arrived well after us were served before us. Seems to be a disorganized place to me.

Teresa Standish

The food is always delicious, the atmosphere is great, and the service wonderful!

Bruce Hart

This is a high-quality dining experience and nice change of pace from the chains. The waiter was great, the chef stopped by to say hello and the food was enjoyable without being over the top rich/herby/weird. I think I could eat the crab cakes every day. The chef does a nice job with presentation and combining ingredients and textures. The glass of wine was generously poured. The creme brûlée had a nice thick top. We'll be back, especially to try the halibut fish&chips!

David Sibley

Great service and excellent food and atmosphere!

Dustin Juhring

Food was excellent, however there were issues with service. Had a reservation but part of the group showed up a little late. They seated them away from us as if they were unaware part of the group was already seated. My wife and I had to go move to their table. The service was extremely slow, and while it was busy, it was still much slower than it should have been. It took them about 30 minutes just to get our drinks ordered and to us. About an hour for the entree. Still gave it 4 stars because everything we ate was delicious.

Kay Marikos

Good American food . Nice friendly service. Nice atmosphere.

Mark Caryl

Clean, quite and the staff are very friendly. Oh and the food was good too. Nice selection of wines. Left very full and happy. Will differently do again.

william Carroll

My steak was cooked perfectly and tasted great. My girlfriend got the pasta with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes and it was great as well. Service was attentive and professional. Will return.

Cam Kay

Great food and Service. Super friendly staff.

Vickie Fleming

The endless mamosa' were great with brunch. Economic prices and delicious food.

Ramon A

Great place good customer service their food is always good and I always recommend it to my friends!

T Allen

Amazing food and great atmosphere. I have eaten there 3 times in the last week. Every time it was excellent!

carissa sims

We had 3 different appetizers and our main dishes and everything was spectacular. We will definitely be back.

Sarah Stewart

Was very disappointed with the lack of flavor in the hollandaise sauce for the eggs benedict. The crab cakes show no sign of crab, you can only hope the gooey filling has some crab in it. Only good thing was the raspberry lemonade.

Paul Buckley

A nice friendly restaurant in a building with several other stores. My wife ordered prime rib special medium rare. To be generous it was medium well and tasteless. I ordered a full rack of lamb medium rare it was basically blue and not split well although they looked great and were thick. We took them home and I hit them in the frying pan and with a little mint jelly they were very tasty. I noticed several people ordered a monster burger which looked really good and all that l could see cleaned their plate. We'll give it another try. I may have been an off night. They have music two Fridays a month. Not last night. We know the group. They generally play nice comfortable dinner music.

Danny Callahan

Nice hide away diner

John Paul Larson

Amazing food. Slightly more expensive than average but very worth it.

Lori Jacobson

Had dinner with friends tonight, it was a great evening with awesome food, drinks and nice jazz music. Staff was great and atmosphere was perfect. Thank you!! For sure will be back again

Vicky Robinett

Very good service and food thank you!

Kamielle James

Hidden gem in Salem, everything is delicious. The sweet potato tots are hands down the best I've ever had.

Sharon Kamiya

A touch of class in downtown Salem. Great ambience, tasty and varied food choices, friendly staff, and a fine jazz group on weekends.

Michael Britzius

Amazing everything. Very strong drinks. Try the orchard tini its so Good. Had crab and artichoke raviolis and parmesan halibut. It was out of this world. Great service. They were very nice. We will be back. Great date spot

Ronda Fairfield

Came for my birthday with the family. Enjoyed dinner as we have all our meals. Will always recommend and continue to come back. My favorite place.

Mandy Miller

We went “European” for the night- Overall our party of 3 enjoyed the food, however it’s a good thing we weren’t in a hurry! It took about 1-1.5 hours to get our food. However bout 45 minutes into our waiting our waitress came by and offered us a complimentary soup or salad. We gladly obliged and we weren’t hinting at being angry, so that was appreciated. I did see that they had some kind of catering order they were getting out while we were waiting to be seated, and a large party newly seated by the window, so we understood they were probably behind. Menu prices were a little high, Passion lemonade was good but could be more lemonade-y/tart because it just reminds you strongly like the passion fruit juice you buy at the store. Bathroom was funny, Kobe burger was good and sweet potato tots were unique and yummy! Plastic bread basket and quality of cutlery didn’t match their theme which was out of place. Just a very, long, night. We’re about 10 mins away and our whole evening was about 3 hours. Probably will return if friends want to go! **oh, I’ve also had their catering a couple times at work and it was great!

Nadia Ciobanu

Absolutely loooove this place! Amazing food! Anything you order, will be amazingly good! And the prices are fair and portions are huge for the prices!

Sierra Reynolds

I was craving a really good steak and decided to go hear for lunch. The reviews were very encouraging so I was disappointed with my food. The service was wonderful especially considering that the staff have to move their cars because of the downtown parking restrictions. I have no issues with the experience there. Now onto the food. I will give some background on my usual steak order. I like my steaks cooked medium and I never eat them with steak sauce or ketchup or any other condiment. I ordered the steak and fries (because no where downtowm seems to believe in steak and mashed potatoes). When I received my steak there was a thick layer of fat on one side. I don't mind some fat because it helps with flavor but this was overkill. Then I cut into my steak and it is tough. I was hopeful that maybe it was tough because it was the end but then I kept cutting and it didn't get any easier. The cook of the steak was more towards medium well/well done than at an actual medium temperature. I was really surprised because the steak was crazy juicy but the way the meat was cutting and was cooked suggested very much otherwise. Most people would have sent the steak back but being on my lunch break I didn't have time and I figured the toast would make up for the over cooked and tough texture. Nope. There was hardly any seasoning on the steak. The only saving grace of the steak was the aioli it was served with which I had to use to add some flavor. The fries were OK. They weren't anything special and almost seemed like the thin fries you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery store. They just didn't seem fresh and weren't that great. I am hoping that I just got a weird cut of meat since it was lunch and not dinner time but it was not a great meal. It wasn't awful but it was not great. If you want a good lunch time steak I would recommend Brownes Old Tavern over this (Brownes is cheaper too). *no I do NOT work for Brownes nor was I paid to mention them in this review. Their food was just genuinely better.

Darren Marshall

Literally the best fish and chips I've ever had! Special recipe fries, the owner has a great story, very interesting and inspiring. I'd recommend

Viktor Pavlov

Amazing food and service.

Julie Martinmaas

Not a five ONLY because of minor feedback! Love the atmosphere and the overall theme! Been here three times for lunch, loved it each time. Quick and efficient, but when we came for dinner, we really wished they didn’t push us out like fast food. They have something too good going to ruin the experience! In retrospect, I guess we could have asked for time before laying EVERY order out at one... it really bothered us. Should we have to ask this? (We did ask once not to push the food out... they did anyway) This is a mere coaching and learning technique I hope they master. Lesson; next time we will say please hold off on putting our order in so we can enjoy our appetizers. (Should be a given) The only other conflict we had, was because everything came out at once- we had to ask for food to be boxed up... they shoved everything into tiny boxes making the leftovers sooooo unappealing!!!! It was an obvious food conservation boxing technique and low scale. Sub par!!!!!!! That being said, it was the BEST RIB EYE preparation ever!!!!! So delicious! The crab ravioli was decadent and filling! The creme brûlée.... melt my heart!!! Our server, so sweet! I hope they read this review and make the small but oh so important changes that make a nice experience an unforgettable one! We will definitely return, but will be armed with feedback... don’t rush your customers looking for an experience!

Angela Sales

My friend has severe allergies, including soy. This is one of the few places we've found that not only accommodates her, but makes her delicious food and never balks at the list when she pulls it out of her purse. They always make us feel like it's no problem and strive to make sure we have a good time. 100% recommend.

Shareef Hagag

I’ve been here for brunch and dinner both times the food was outstanding and the atmosphere is always on point! Fresh menu items coupled with the ambience really makes for a great experience whether it’s date night with the Mrs. or brunch with the kiddos I love that places like this are coming to Salem!

Savannah Roberts

Live band singing beautifuly to an amazing dinner. Very romantic.

Sam Stacey

Been a here a few times now, always a great dinner date spot for the wife and I, great food and great service.

Ted Hersh

Wow. We went here during the annual Salem Taco Crawl and had some amazing tacos! Brisket, Pork Belly and Deep Fried Avocado were the 3 I tried and they were fabulous. I can't wait to go back and try the regular menu.

Adam Schrecengost

I highly recommended eating here. The food was amazing. We had 7 different dishes at our table and all were excellent. The staff at this establishment are incredible. They responded quickly to all our questions. My daughter wanted to try a pasta sauce and they made a small batch for her (they make everything to order). My wife ordered a mojito and loved it but wasn’t drinking it and they offered to replace it. This kind of customer service is sadly unheard of anymore. They are focusing on all the right things. Thank you to all the staff at Chira’s.

Nadya Cam

Went with the kids and happened to be there during happy hour which was an excellent way to check out several different dishes at a discount rate. I enjoyed the quality of the food and would go back for the food but not too sure about the environment. It's nice enough but the energy is stagnant.

Roze Ayyyeee

Dont order from here. They will just cancel your order 30 mins after placing it for no reason....which is too bad because their food sounds good.

Danny Speten

Good food, good service, and in an awesome building - the place looks great!

Bendix Baron

We just tried Chiras for the first time and were impressed by how good the food was, and at very reasonable prices for upscale dining. The parmesan-crusted halibut was the best I have had, and my partner loved his Prime Rib (only available Fri and Sat). Really delicious house bread has rosemary and is served with honey butter for a touch of sweetness. Salads were also delicious, with homemade dressing. The only disappointment was the crab cakes appetizer. There was a fabulous mango salsa, but the crab cakes themselves tasted like they had been frozen and reheated, not made fresh. But everything else was outstanding. We'll definitely be back!

David Bartlett

This place is very professional and classy. I had the salmon and if it was a picture I would have framed it, it was that good, wow!

Mark Timmons

Everything was exceptional.

Terry Mangum

Great food and service, although the time to get your meal can be a bit long on Sunday morning. We'll be back.

Tylor Meyer

Amazing food at even better prices! Great atmosphere amd service! The chefs are amazing...

My goodness what a surprise! We came in St Patrick's day after deciding green beer and bar food just wasn't going to do. We literally just walked by and the wonderful smell kept us there. We had a Sausage and shrimp tortellini that was outstanding, and the special which was large pork loin stuffed with all kinds of goodness! The hot kale and pepper mix was superb! We finished with the best lemon cream shortcake I have ever had. Truly amazing! All flavors were wonderful! Highly recommend!

Incredible food, atmosphere, and staff! I was absolutely blown away... Visiting from out of town - it was difficult to locate - but that is the only negative thing I can say... Definitely will be coming here in the future! Rate 9/10

Dropped in for lunch. The special was reasonably priced and excellent quality. The service was impeccable. Quiet dining area, a respite from the business of a workday.

Good food, great service

AJ Miller

Great atmosphere! Great service! Great food! We ordered the butternut ravioli and the prime rib. They were fantastic! We also got a sausage and potatoes soup that was amazing! We will be recommending this place to everyone and we will be back!

Wait staff was wonderful. Food was ok, and at 30+ dollars a plate, I'm expecting better than ok. Food took a long time to arrive, and when it did, the choice of vegetables made no sense with the dish (ribeye). My "mashed potatoes" weren't mashed at all. The lemonade was more water than anything. The steaks were cooked and seasoned well but very clearly cheap, low quality steaks. Definitely not worth the price. $70 for two people, no appetizer, no dessert; I should be getting a great steak and lemonade that doesn't taste like water.

We went for dinner on a slow Thursday evening. The food was average at best and the service was sooooo slooooow!! Save your money (and lots of time)!!

Wendy Childs

Excellent atmosphere, live music on a Sat night was great. Not too loud so we could still talk and enjoy good company. Delish soup, tasty and generous main dishes.

OMG Great ambiance, service and music, food was amazing. Loved the place so much we went again the very next evening.

Extremely slow, inattentive staff which was surprising since there was only two other tables of patrons. Food was pricy but tasted good.

Paco Sanchez

I’m gonna give my honest opinion I came here for a birthday party about 14 people we arrived 6pm afternoon and ordered we got our food at 8:15 pm and the food was not the greatest they messed up our orders and evryrhing is super pricey you can get ur money’s worth at McDonald’s!!! To be honest do not eat your don’t spend ur money or time here!!!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. Roman made us feel very welcomed and was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. The music and ambience was nice and relaxing. The head chef AJ (as well as Roman) were very personable and made the experience that much better. The food was AMAZING and the staff all around is wonderful. We will definitely be back to support Chira's since they go above and beyond to make sure they use all local foods and products. I highly recommend that everyone check out this restaurant.

Best coconut shrimp! Perfection!

Chira's happy hour is fantastic. Justin is also fantastic. Prices and atmosphere is top of the line. If you haven't been, make it the first thing you do this week, they won't disappoint.

Peggie Grosh

Might be one of Salem's best kept secrets. This is a wonderful restaurant!

Rachel Lipp

Excellent food with great flavors. Plenty on the plate and worth the money spent. Rib Eye steak was amazing. Yuriy does an excellent job and takes care of his patrons.

Jordan Bean

Very good food, prices just right.

Scott Hite

Had dinner here. Had crab cakes for appetizer. They had a mango salsa with coleslaw. They were really delicious. For main course I had prime rib, my wife had rack of lamb. Both dishes were beautiful and tasted great. We ended with the creme brulee which was also really good. The staff was very attentive and the environment was cozy. We left very full and very satisfied. I would recommend giving this place a try

Allen Miller

Wonderful food and great service! Great beer selection. Food and beer are reasonably priced, however, they are a little too proud of thier house wine. Overall a great experience. I'd highly recommend given them a try and we will be back.


The food, the atmosphere and the service was amazing.

Lori Yandell

Fantastic everything!!! Food, service, drinks and dessert. All 5 stars
