I had a delightful evening with my niece on the patio. Food was delicious, service was great. My table was quite unstable though and there were bags of soil/mulch very close. The patio is such a great space I wish it were more well taken care of.

I booked the Antique Table in Salem in order to get together with women that I had not seen in a long time. We were all childhood friends that spent so much time together & we needed a central location to meet for dinner. Everything about our dining experience was perfect! We were not rushed, the food was excellent and our server, Alejandra, was great! We would definitely recommend & will return!

Party of 9 for a Birthday celebration. Waitress could not have been nicer. Her service was excellent. Everyone was very pleased with Calamari as Appetizers and entries including Chicken Piccata, Veal and Chicken Marsala, Lobster Ravioli, Pork Chops, and Chicken Ziti and Broccoli were delicious! We will go back soon

Food was outstanding, craft cocktails were fantastic. The server was very nice and polite but was absolutely not knowledgeable about the menu or for that matter drinks. This was very hard as a sever myself as well as my quest. We could not believe how she knew absolutely nothing about the menu. Bartender was excellent and friendly and nice. Over all very lovely.

Times are tough and you were understaffed with many guests. Looked like you had two servers for all. They were AWESOME! Very professional and did their best. They should be thanked!! My filet was over cooked but didn’t want to send it back since you were swamped. Everyone else really enjoyed the food. The portions seemed smaller than last time but very good. We will be back

The reservation system has a bad link in it. When I click on Salem, to go to the reservations for salem (before I put in any date), the link routes me to the Manchester by the sea location. In the https:// address, I deleted manchester-by-the-sea and inserted Salem and got right to the page requesting date, time and # of people in the party. I told the hostess of this error but she thought I was using the website incorrectly...but I went back after dinner and sure enough, the routing link was bad. Not sure I want to alert you all, because I would have a better chance of getting a reservation in Salem if most people are redirected to Manchester <grin> thanks!

A lovely, unheralded spot in Salem on the South River, away from the usual crowds. Considering the restraints brought on by Covid19, they've done a decent job of spacing and service, but it hampers what would normally be cozy and quaint. Food was excellent, but service a bit shoddy. Overall; an enjoyable evening out.

We have always loved Antique Table, first in Lynn, now in Salem. BUT, for an excellent Italian restaurant the wine selection was awful, not a single red wine by the glass on the list!!! Ridiculous that for an Italian restaurant the house reds were from California, as was the glass of Montepulciano, also from California!!! And on the white side, Orvieto was on the list but not available. Not coming back until they fix the wine list...

The only thing that detracted from our experience was that the service was pretty slow. Not sure if the kitchen was understaffed, or if there was a lack of management, but the place was not busy when we arrived yet we sat for over 10 minutes before someone came to take our drink order. Once we ordered things got better.

Everything was great! The service was awesome and my lemon drop martini was delicious. My friends enjoyed their meal but I didn’t care for mine. I wouldn’t recommend the Gnocchi Basilico.

Part of the reason for such a low score was due to Covid 19 changes that the restaurant has no control over. The dining room was set up well for social distancing but because of this it was not as welcoming as is the usual feeling there. The food was mixed the lobster ravioli was somewhat gummy and wasn’t very hot. The chicken parmesan was average. The best dish appeared to be the Antique Table Fettucini. The menu appeared pretty limited, although that’s understandable. Our waiter did an great job making sure our needs were met!
