“Amazing service here. Great craft drinks. This really is a 5 star place. I gave it 4 because i went there expecting Italian food and craving pesto, and they only had 2 pasta dishes and one was risotto. The other was a seafood papardele which was delicuous. I actually did a google search for best pesto in Salem and DaVinci came up as the best. So blame it on the internet.“

“I was really excited to find a nice restaurant with a bar that I could walk to and LA Vida Catrina does not disappoint. Very good food and amazing drinks. Just make sure you are clear about wanting food/drinks off the happy hour menu, otherwise it can be pricey. It's a great spot for date night or going out with friends, but for someone like me, who might wants to visit once a week, the happy hour menu is key. I'm really looking forward to going back.“

Lil' Sammies Sports Bar • $
3404 Commercial St SE, Salem

“I've been to this place many times. And the bartenders are always on it. As well as give genuine conversation and not scripted remarks. That alone can make a not so good place seem wonderful. As for li'l Sammies though, it has other amenities as well. Drinks made proper, good fried food as well as sandwiches, and a couple machines set away from the main gaming room if you want to socialize with friends at the bar while playing. Overall A+“

“Toast and jam is the best restaurant I've been to in a while. The coffee was excellent, the creamer dish was never empty and my coffee cup never was empty because the wait staff check the tables frequently. I had top sirloin steak and eggs with pancakes.the pancakes were absolutely perfect as well as the steak and eggs, the steak was so tender I couldn't believe it. My wife ordered egg's Benedict and fruit and everything was wonderful and very fresh. Very nice atmosphere and the owner and waitresses were so nice we are anxious to visit again. South Salem has a real gem of a restaurant and we are happy that we discovered it! Five stars across the board!“
