My wife and I have enjoyed the Sunday Jazz Brunch at The Hawthorne Hotel in Salem a number of times. It is a well-developed three course menu with delicious and different choices. The food has always been very good, the atmosphere is warm, intimate, and inviting, and the service has always been terrific. The music is always terrific and sets... More

I was looking forward to having dinner with another couple at Nat's. The ambiance was perfect when we walked in---low lights, pianist, and seemed relatively easy to maintain conversation. There also appeared to be one or two empty tables which would lead you to think they were able to handle the Saturday night crowd. Unfortunately, that was not the case.... More

I took my mom here for her 60th birthday. We originally planned on staying at this hotel but it was sold out. So we made dinner reservations here anyway. We entered the busy hotel lobby and the restaurant was completely empty. It was a bit concerning but the staff was very welcoming. After we received our drinks the piano began... More

My family of 4 went to Sunday Jazz Brunch. It is a 3 course set menu. $22.95/pp which included non alcoholic drinks. The seafood Benedict and steak and eggs were a $4 up charge The food was not plentiful and the taste was mediocre at best. None of us cleaned our plates. We all tried different main courses so it...

Dear Kim D, Sorry to hear your experience was not as you had expected and my apologies if you felt that this was not the right place for you. Our long-standing Jazz brunch is one of the most popular brunches in town every weekend and we feel for $22.95 certainly not priced too high for 3 courses, including non-alcoholic beverages....
